International sensation Tash Sultana reveals a brand new single, ‘Mystik’ released via Sony Columbia. The Australian singer recently made her US TV debut, on Late Night with Seth Meyer - watch her performance of ‘Jungle’ here. Tash returns to the UK later this month, playing a sold out show at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on October 29.
'Mystik' was written recently in Tash’s home studio whilst on a break from touring the globe for the last 18 months. Once again Tash played every instrument on the recording, with the addition of a new saxophone she picked up and learnt to play a week before recording. The song was tracked and mixed with ‘Notion EP’ engineer Nikita Miltiadou at Melbourne’s own Smooch studios. The single will feature on Tash’s highly anticipated debut record due in 2018.
“I had a mental block for f***ing ages, then one day in my studio I woke up jet-lagged at 5am and this just fell out of my finger tips” – Tash Sultana
To date Tash has amassed tens of millions of streams online, landed at #3 in triple j’s Hottest 100 with ‘Jungle’ - which is now at platinum sales in Australia, top ten ARIA chart with ‘Notion EP’ which then stayed in the chart for 6 months, topped the iTunes charts in multiple countries, sold out theatre shows worldwide, graced major festival stages around the globe, even picked up a j award in 2016 along the way!
She recently took the #1 spot on US Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart, and appears on Late Night With Seth Myers on October 2.

NIGHT THINKER EP TRACKLISTING:
Hopeless Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Tonight Alive. Additionally, the band has signed to UNFD in Australia and New Zealand. The band has a new song and music video for "World Away," which can be seen on the band's website, here: http://tonightalive.com
The 5-piece band hailing from Sydney, Australia has always been a voice of their generation, and "World Away" is no different. On the new track, vocalist Jenna McDougall says:-
"'World Away' is a continuation of our quest for self understanding and empowerment, but this time through developing a personal relationship with darkness. In a society that conditions us to suppress and shy away from confronting emotions, we wrote an invitation in World Away to shake hands with what scares us most and begin recognizing the opportunity for growth in struggle. Produced by Dave Petrovic (The Other Side, The Edge) we are sharing World Away with our fans as the introduction to the sound of the next chapter of Tonight Alive."
The band will record their new album this summer.
Tonight Alive is composed of vocalist Jenna McDougall, lead guitarist Whakaio Taahi, rhythm guitarist Jake Hardy, bassist Cameron Adler and drummer Matt Best. A force on the global music scene, Tonight Alive have released a trio of successful albums with The Other Side (2013) and Limitless (2016) debuting on the Australian Aria Chart at #5 and #6 respectively.
On signing Tonight Alive, Hopeless Records' EVP Business Development and A&R, Eric Tobin, says "We are excited to have Tonight Alive join the family! We have been fans for a long time and look forward to working with them."
UNFD's Head of Recorded Music, Luke Logemann, says "We've been big fans of Tonight Alive as people and as a band for quite some time now, so working with them is a dream come true. Their new music they're writing is beautiful and brilliant, and we can't wait for the world to experience it."
The band is currently on a UK tour with You Me At Six before appearing on this year's Slam Dunk Festival. A full list of tour dates is available below. For more information on Tonight Alive, please visit: http://tonightalive.com/

Australian singer-songwriter Gretta Ray today releases her brand new single 'Drive' in the UK. The finely crafted, hook-laden track was co-produced with Nashville based Australian Josh Barber (Goyte, Archie Roach) and award winning composer Jonathan Dreyfus. Gretta won triple j's 'Unearthed High' competition in 2016 and subsequently saw 'Drive' reach #27 in triple j's 'Hottest 100' last year - the highest debut by any 'Unearthed High' artist in history. You can listen to 'Drive' HERE.
Described by Beat Magazine (AUS) as 'the new face of Australian songwriting', Gretta displays a talent far beyond her years, influenced in part by growing up on a musical diet of artists such as James Taylor & Joni Mitchell. Aside from her success with triple j, 'Drive' also won the 18-year-old the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition at the tail end of last year - an amazing feat considering Gretta only released her debut EP 'Elsewhere' at the beginning of 2016.
You can find Gretta Ray online here;
Fans of Angelspit and Lorelei Dreaming successfully crowdfunded the EP 'BANSHEE' in 6 hours. Now they have their sights set on a new stretch goal - if they reach $5000 they'll do another track, a video and host a free party in Chicago for all backers.
Produced and composed by Angelspit's Zoog Von Rock, BANSHEE is Lorelei Dreaming’s debut EP with 5 tracks and 10 remixes, set to release on May 1, 2017 - a celebration of the Dystopian Future.
Lorelei Dreaming spent 2015 and 2016 recording and performing with Angelspit, Velvet Acid Christ, Go-Fight and St. Griselda.
"The future is uncertain - but what is certain is that music and dance will continue to be integral to our community in the face of adversity. Now more than ever, we need to celebrate our diversity and come together through dance and music. The grim future never sounded so good!"
"We both love Gary Numan, Goldfrapp, Depeche Mode - future pop with a twist of darkness, which we call Dystopian Future Pop. We're working to create music based around what Laura naturally does, vocals that are a little sultry and ethereal."
- Zoog Von Rock, Angelspit
The songs of Lorelei Dreaming hinge on mischief, dissent, pushing out ever further, and at times get glibly political.
