acid stag has always taken pride in being able to give up-and-coming artists the opportunity to get their music heard by a global audience. In efforts to keep up with the overwhelming amount of new music coming through at the moment, we have decided to kick off a new location-based showcase series, which is kicking off today right here in Australia.

If you want to know more about any of the below artists, click through to the associated Soundcloud profiles.

AIYA – If I Could Get (Melbourne)
Fresh out of Melbourne comes the delicate sounds of Ayten and Felicity, aka AIYA, and ‘If I Could Get’ is their extremely impressive debut single – Australia’s answer to FKA Twigs perhaps?

Otious – All I Know (Melbourne)
‘All I Know’ is the latest single from four musicians out of Melbourne who call themselves Otious, it is also the title-track from their debut EP and I’m pretty sure they are going to be turning a lot of heads in the coming months.

Alex Brittan – (Can’t) Relax (Perth/Melbourne)
By way of Perth and Melbourne comes singer, songwriter, producer & all-round pop fanatic Alex Brittan. He’s recently shared this track ‘(Can’t) Relax,’ which is the second single off his upcoming debut EP, and a great introduction to his style and sound.

FROYO – Out There (Sydney)
Sydney synth trio FROYO have recently delivered their brand new tune, titled ‘Out There’ is is soaked in feel-good synth-pop vibes and daydreaming vocals, that for me conjure up thoughts of M83 and Tycho.

Mondecreen – Dark & Day (ft. Indighost) (Canberra)
George Stavridis and Roshan Fernandez are a electronic duo out of Canberra who go by the name Mondecreen. ‘Dark & Day’ is their newest single and it sees them teaming up with fellow ACT-native Indighost for his fine word-slinging abilities.
