The first new music from the RMC camp since last years ‘I Just Have a Lot of Feelings’ ep, and this tune features much more of a rock-band vibe than the previously established clean & jangly guitars involved with Rachels indie-pop approach in earlier songs. Perhaps this is the natural flow on effect of gigging with a full-band lineup and building up a national profile as an artist. Whatever the case, im a fan.

This album is full of emotion and beauty.
Melody and movement entertain as much as the songwriting. The lyrics will move you and the sound grabs will surprise you.
‘Feel Nothing’ invokes pictures and memories in my mind of other albums whilst managing to sound current and relevant to todays top names in the emo/indie/post everything music scene. In short: this is a standout album. Continue reading We Set Sail – Feel Nothing (2016)

When this fell into my lap I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into.
However I’m glad that it did and if first single “Figure it in, figure it out” from Sydney Experimental Pop Artist Wartime Sweethearts is anything to go by, the rest was going to be a treat. Continue reading Wartime Sweethearts – So Long Sparta (2016)
