You might think there's something a wee bit egotistical about profiling a band that shares our name, but we couldn't go past the sunny melodies from indie rock band Frankie & the Heartstrings.

tunesday - hannah karydas

9:00am Tuesday, 21 May.

This talented lass discovered her gift at a super young age, when we were busy warbling woefully into our hairbrushes and prancing around the backyard like ponies.

With their new album Trouble Will Find Me due out this Friday, the Brooklyn-based bunch are Byron bound to play the new-and-improved Splendour in the Grass in July.

super wild horses tour dates

Tomorrow these fine fillies kick off a series of album launch events around the country, and we are jump-out-of-our-seats excited to get down to their new tunes in a live setting.

Julia and the Deep Sea Sirens are a seven-piece band who've proven that there's more goodness to come out of our nation's capital than fireworks and girly mags.

The soothing music of indie duo Rhye was first gifted to us on a personalised mixtape, and we're forever in musical debt to our generous pal.

Tegan and Sara have just released the clip for their latest single "I Was a Fool", and we're super pumped to be the first to screen it in Australia.

tunesday - junip interview

9:00am Tuesday, 23 Apr.

How Junip manage to make music that's as perfect a soundtrack for a roadtrip along the coast as a rainy day of hibernation is beyond us, but we've gotta say, we're pretty darn into it.

tunesday - aluka

We first discovered Aluka on a farm in South Gippsland, and since then they've become our go-to tunes when we just want to melt into a floaty pool of loveliness.

tunesday - telling

Telling's debut single "Stella" is making us feel an awful lot of feelings.
