We love finding new music. More so, we love sharing the new music we find with you! That's why we've launched The Breakers - a new music feature highlighting songs and artists we think you'll love! Check out who we've been checking out below!
Barns Courtney - 99
Prince may have wanted us to 'Party like it's 1999' but Barns Courtney wants us to 'Live like it's 1999' with his new single, 99. The song is 'about losing touch with your former self and the needless formalisation of fun in our daily lives as we age' and might have one of our favorite lyrics of the year - Heart strung, young and dumb, Yeah, we had no fear. Way back when we said we'd both be millionaires
And the video is pretty epic too (see below) ... when asked it, Barns said "This video is an imagining of life on a different path. And a an insight into my own struggles with identity, and the bizarre ritual of growing up."
We hear ya Barns ... we hear ya ...

Florence and the Machine - High as Hope
Florence and the Machine are back in 2018 with their 4th studio album, High As Hope. The album features the 'titanic voice' of Florence Welch that SPIN Magazine says 'can summon long-buried ghosts, and then obliterate them fully with a gale-force roar'
Florence & the Machine recently played a pair of soul lifting shows at The Anthem ... but we hope to see them come back through our area sooner than later ...
Check out the videos for two of our favorite tracks from the record -

George Ezra - Staying at Tamara's
Maybe we're a little biased since we just had a private lunchtime concert with him, but George Ezra's music earned him the honor of being our inaugrual listing on The Breakers. His new album Staying at Tamara's is packed full of catchy hooks - but we can't stop singing Shotgun!
Check out the video below ... and good luck getting the song out of your head!
