Welcome to The Fodder Blog’s new weekly segment ‘Weekly Top 10’, where our lovely team of writers share their top song picks for that week. If you’re in need of brand-new, spirited additions to your tumbleweed-ridden playlists, you’re in the right place! 

For the week ending February 20, Aeva Milos will be sharing her personal recommendations on the latest releases to hit the music sphere.

George Alice — ‘Haunted’

Released on: February 18

‘Haunted’ is the final track from Triple J Unearthed High 2019 winner George Alice’s debut EP Growing Pains. Written solo when Alice was a teenager and produced in collaboration with Japanese Wallpaper, it’s full of heartbreak and all the messy emotions of youth.

Carla Geneve — ‘Brighter Than Blue’

Released on: February 16

Perth-based Carla Geneve has been on a steady rise within both the Australian and international indie-rock scene. ‘Brighter Than Blue’ is the second single shared off her debut album Learn To Like It, out April 23. Recalling the sound of Courtney Barnett, it’s an exciting Australian rock track perfect to blast as you’re walking the streets of Melbourne.

Winston Surfshirt (feat. Genesis Owusu) — ‘There’s Only One

Released on: February 16

A collaboration from two of Australia’s defining acts, ‘There’s Only One’ melds together the funk R&B elements of Winston Surfshirt and the hip-hop style of Genesis Owusu into a groovy song made for a sunny day on the beach. 

Lee Sugar — ‘Cuckoo

Released on: February 14

Sydney-based singer Lee Sugar is making his first foray into the local music scene with his debut single, ‘Cuckoo’. The song is an exciting blend of pop and jazz influences, garnering inspiration from artists like Still Woozy and Rex Orange County. Definitely one to watch. 

Eliza and the Delusionals — ‘Give You Everything

Released on: February 15

‘Give You Everything’ is the new indie track shared by Eliza and the Delusionals since announcing their debut album, Now and Then, set to be released on May 20. The song feels like a blend of Avril Lavigne and an early 2000s coming-of-age soundtrack. If you want to live out your 10 Things I Hate About You dream, press play on this one. 

BROODS and Tove Lo — ‘I Keep

Released on: February 18

‘I Keep’ is a track fresh off the New Zealand duo’s first album since 2019, Space Island. In this song, they have teamed up with longtime collaborator (and pop princess) Tove Lo to deliver a catchy lo-fi indie pop song. A shimmery track that captures heartache in its most danceable form. 

Beach House — ‘Hurts To Love’

Released on: February 15

‘Hurts to Love’, a track fresh off duo Beach House’s new album Once Twice Melody, is an exciting dive into the synth-pop landscape and their first record since 2018. Fans of Tame Impala and Daft Punk will enjoy this one. The band gained popularity online with the track ‘Space Song’ off their hit album Depression Cherry. 

Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) — ‘Love’s Train’

Released on: February 14

Silk Sonic, the collaboration between Grammy Award winning Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, commemorated Valentine’s Day by releasing a cover of Con Funk Shun’s 1982 song ‘Love Train’, a soulful creation perfect for celebrating all those gooey feelings of love.

Big Thief — ‘Red Moon’

Released on: February 11

‘Red Moon’ is a bluesy folk song, full of fiddles and whistling, that is part of the 20-track record Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You (yes, it’s a mouthful) by the indie-rock band Big Thief. A song perfect for a road-trip into the countryside and sitting by the campfire at night. 

alt-J — ‘The Actor’

Released on: February 11

Note: this song has direct references to drug use.

Detailing the death of John Belushi at the Chateau Marmont, ‘The Actor’ is a track off the trio’s new album, The Dream. This is the band’s first release in close to five years and is an exciting step into a more brooding indie-rock presentation. If you’re after something a little more eclectic in your Spotify playlists, ‘The Actor’ is the one for you (though I may be a little biased, as alt-J is one of my favourites!).
