Video: Daily Holla – “Waves” ft. J Fitz

dailyholla

Gold Coast Producer Daily Holla, AKA Harry Deadman, has today released a brand new track with a complementing video. “Waves” is an emotionally charged piece of work with layers of dynamic production contrasts.

What started out as a chilled synth-based track, has now become somewhat of an identifier for Daily Holla, and a beautiful mistake.

“‘Waves’ was the first track I wrote off what eventually became the second Daily Holla EP. I started writing the song back in mid 2015. It all started with a plastic sounding arp loop, which was initially meant to be a placeholder, but it’s still there! I completely forgot about replacing it later on and I both love that silly mistake and hate it.”Daily Holla

Teaming up with newcomer J Fitz has given this melodic banger a juicy ambiance that really enhances the delay and distortion effects of the overall song. This duo clearly has their mojo in sync, as they continue to create a cohesive vision.

“I’ve never seen someone work like her. She came in and listened to a rough mix of the track, half an hour later the vocals were cut and we were eating some Vietnamese take away. I was so used to doing everything on my own in my bedroom that sitting in a studio in Sydney felt so surreal.” – Daily Holla

Having studied film at university and loving the combination of music and film, Daily Holla brought his two passions together for “Waves”. Enlisting the help of former uni mate, and now film director/cinematographer Mark Desiatov, the video follows the struggles of ballet dancer Jade Moris, as she suffers through injuries and anxiety leading up to a final performance.

This short-film style video is the perfect way to show the strength and willpower it takes on both sides of the spectrum in creating a work that translates to an audience. The imagery is raw and will have you gasping for air, much like J Fitz’s powerful ending.

“I’ve always wanted to mix the fluidity and timeless beauty of ballet with more of a modern and contemporary sound which I thought Harry (Daily Holla) has. The concept revolves around the lyrics and the idea of self-belief through adversity; a common theme that most people can connect with. I believe there’s nothing more breathtaking than a live ballet or dance performance where the artist defies the pain and physical hardships throughout their routine; which is a reflection of the underlying theme of the clip,” – Mark Desiatov

Daily Holla’s upcoming EP has been shaped around “Waves,” with the new track available now on Spotify & iTunes through Inertia Access.

“ the rest of the world has begun to take notice of Nourmand’s immensely polished production.
– The Music Ninja

2016 has been a wild year for Bobby Nourmand, highlighted by a string of incredibly successful remixes, sold-out shows in LA, NY, Miami, and Palm Springs for Splash House, and continuing support of tastemakers around the globe.

Some of that support happened to come via Sirius XM, who organically came across one of Bobby’s first tracks to give it some radio love, showcasing to the world what some felt was already an instant classic. After nearly 5k Shazams from its impactful airtime on Sirius XM’s Chill channel and an influx of messages and comments from his fans, Nourmand has decided to release “D E E P,” offering it up for us to purchase or stream on Spotify. Long-time friends will already be familiar with this instant classic’s heady, underground vibes, dark, twisted bassline, and haunting synths, but newcomers to Nourmand’s work will come to find a new favorite.

Check it out now and keep on scrolling for a couple of my favorites:

Listen: Twin Caverns – “Pyramid”

pyramids
“Pyramid was actually the first song we wrote together back in 2013 and has since existed in many forms. It was really the catalyst for Twin Caverns coming together and we are really excited to finally be able to share it with everyone” – Twin Caverns

“Pyramid” is the next single to come from Sydney electronic duo Twin Caverns (Louise Millar & Michael Macias), and is also the opening-track to their forthcoming debut EP.

Twin Caverns have a knack for creating chilled, daydream-like soundscapes, and “Pyramid” is proof of this yet again. Blends of delicate guitar riffs weave their way throughout Michael Macias’ intricately arranged layers of electronic beats, samples and percussion, cradled by the sounds of Louise Millar’s hauntingly beautiful voice, as she reveals an emotional tale of intimacy, frustration and the fragility of intertwining oneself with others.

Twin Caverns’ Glass Balloon EP will be available on on Wednesday, April 8th.
