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.

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.
