Melbourne duo Close Counters are prepping to follow up their debut full-length SOULACOSTA with an EP fairly soon. In the meantime the guys have shared another cut from said EP, this one with a fun little story behind it. While creating “HEY!!!” the guys were challenged by friends to set a timer for 20 minutes and to assemble something by completely relying on the visuals from the waveforms and never listening to the sounds. You’d think that this would end up being a big mess, but the result is the fun main loop, which obviously the track is titled from.

So fun, right? Probably not as fun as the final product, but still!

Sydney synth-pop duo Midnight Pool Party shared their latest track, “Slow Down” last week, which is a cut from their forthcoming EP, MOTIONS, which is currently in the works. The song, which features some additional work on keys from their friend Allan McConnell of Close Counters. Speaking on the track, singer Darren Morilla said, “Slow Down’ was written at the time I was working things out with an ex-lover and wanted to take things slow. It’s about getting caught-up in the heat of the moment but realising you need to take a step back, slow it down and try to appreciate the situation more.”

I’m really gonna have to move to Australia, aren’t I? Ugh.
