PLAYLIST: The Best Aussie Songs From 2017
Well, that went fast eh? Another year down and our ears have yet again been blessed with the sweetest of sounds. Gone are the times of shock at how much great music is coming out of this humid haunt, in 2017 people around the world just seem to expect it of Australia.
The likes of Methyl Ethel, Julia Jacklin, Confidence Man, King Gizz, Gang of Youths, Mall Grab and Parcels have been selling out venues around the world. Then there's the outrageously talented newcomers such as Stella Donnelly, Moody Beach, Exhibitionist (who recently signed to Future Classic). Live performances that will blow your mind - Gold Class, Great Outdoors, Post Motel. The list goes on. We've compiled our very own list of our favourite Aussie tunes that were released this year. There's no doubt a good chunk of these artists will be making their mark throughout the globe in the not too distant future.
We say 'best', but we really mean our favourite, because well, taste is a little subjective innit? But we really do recommend giving all 64 of the below tracks a little listen over the Christmas break. There's something to chill to, something to feel sad to, something to enlighten you, and of course, something to groove to.
