We all feel under the water sometimes when so much music is being released at the same time. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. We compiled here our favorite new tracks from last month. Here’s the great stuff you missed!
Ruby Fields – Climate
March began for us with the release of Ruby Field’s newest single Climate. The australian singer-songwriter delivers an upbeat track, that you will play to enjoy a sunny walk in town. Climate is taken from Ruby’s upcoming EP, ‘Permanent Hermit’ (out May 3rd, 2019)
Dream State – Hand In Hand
Currently in the studio recording their first album, Dream State have released new single Hand In Hand, which serves as a first taste of what’s to be expected in this new era of theirs. According to vocalist CJ, the track belongs to their community: “To all those who need something they can lean on, we want the music and lyrics to help you feel less alone with what you’re dealing with mentally. Despite all of us feeling the same way, we can still live our life and make something of it. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, you just gotta give all you got!”.”
Dream State are scheduled to play at Groezrock festival next month!

Cub Sport – when the party’s over (Billie Eilish cover)
The Billie Eilish covers keep flowing! Here’s another take on one of Eilish’s songs, When the party’s over, performed by alt/pop group Cub Sport, for Triple J’s Like A Version.
