Play With Me is an anthem, a shared sentiment of togetherness – and a song we’ll almost certainly be hearing more of as the summer months and the festival season approaches.
That’s the great thing about this song, it follows its own rules depending on what each moment needs. For the most part, this thick yet mellow, eighties style groove drives things – giving the song a mildly nostalgic feel, but at the same time still allowing it to hold close to this fresh and uplifting new sound.
What seems like a fairly simple, and carefree love song hides a much deeper and darker secret.

The Live Sessions is music for music’s sake, and if mainstream culture has made you forget what that sounds like, Torelli and the Fuse are here to remind you.

The days of colourful riffs and pop melodies infused with hearty rock and roll seemed all but gone in recent years. Enter Life As Mary – a band who brilliantly fuse indie rock rhythms and grit with immediately infectious, likable songwriting.
King St. offer a simple fusion of Americana and indie-pop with their latest album, all connected beautifully with some poetic and heartfelt songwriting.
Vapor Brain by Zora Graves is a grooving, melodic, existential masterwork. Equal parts bubbly and melancholic, with a solid exhibition of instrumental genius.
When the songwriting jumps out at you much more boldly than the genre, you know you’re onto something good. SpoonFed’s B With Me is a song that gets better and better as it moves along.
The band tackle infatuation & modern dating – the video highlights this further as they’ve gone all-in to craft a story-line with various scenes & details. Today’s ‘swipe right’ nation will likely relate.
By the latter half, the beat hits and the guitars take over – an atmospheric, organic ambiance rains down around you. It feels mellow yet also uplifting, as if you’re sitting peacefully on-board a fast train; the world speeding by just outside.
