Landing in our inbox this week is this intriguing new single from new Aussie duo Venus II.
The duo is made up of Eagle & The Worm’s Jarrad Brown and Canyons’ Ryan Grieve and it’s clear their combined powers of pop are a force to be reckoned with.
“I think Jarrad is one of the truest artists I’ve worked or been involved with,” Ryan says of the new partnership. “If something’s feeling good then it doesn’t need to be questioned. We’re good like that.”
And it seems the feeling’s mutual from Jarrad’s point of view.
“I feel like a different artist,” he says. “It’s a whole new world for me. It’s really exciting.”
‘Inside Your Sun’ is the boys’ debut single and it’s clear from one little listen that there’s plenty to like; driving dance beats, a humming electric guitar line and big nods to the British electronica scene of the ’90s (we’re reminiscing of Republica, while the echoed spoken word parts recall the Soup Dragons classic ‘I’m Free’.)
The track also comes with a trippy music video, which bursts onto your screen in an explosion of colour; quite the trip.
