Aussies are throwing down some mega tunes this week but we will push through over here in New Zealand knowing that Lorde has been in the studio recently (according to her insta). So who knows what she’s got for us next? Delta Goodrem has proved she’s as dreamy as ever with her new single Wings. The Biebs has got us wondering what he means and Mandy’s muse is none other than the musical goddess Gin Wigmore.


Troye Sivan: WILD

South-African born Aussie kid, Troye Sivan, has just released a mini-album and New Zealand has gone ‘WILD’ for it — sending it straight to number one on iTunes (not to mention in 41 other countries). You may have heard his song from the film The Fault in Our Stars. Well, his new tunes are just as good! BUT, IT GETS BETTER – he’s teamed up with NZ brother-sister duo, Broods, on a track called Ease and it’s rad! Check it out ASAP.


Delta is giving us good dreams…

Another Aussie bringing music into our country. But we don’t mind when it’s from golden girl Delta Goodrem. This blonde beauty has done something magical — pulling out all the stops for her new single Wings. I guess this means we can expect an album from her in the near future. We will keep you posted!


Super Kiwi talent: Arli

Soundscape guitarist and composer Arli has just announced a record deal with Marigold Music. We can expect a radical album by October 9. On a side note – this guy has not only won the hearts of NZ but also the genetic lottery. And that, my friends, is probably the realest thing you will read all day.


We Beliebe in you JB…

So this was actually released a while back but people are still going bonkers over this song. (Maybe Justin Bieber’s tears are made of gold? But in all seriousness…) JB seems to be back and better than ever. If you haven’t heard What Do You Mean? hit play below. Do we think it’s about Selena?


Mandy’s muse of the week: Gin Wigmore – Blood To Bone

Gin. She’s so perfectly imperfect and this is reflected breathtakingly throughout her music. Her new album Blood To Bone has got some mega vibes. It has the power to send anyone on a haunting emotional journey. My musical sweet tooth for a soul-filled voice has got me putting this on repeat. Fave tune thus far: New Rush
