Donatachi’s mini-album donatachi.com draws inspiration from the formative years of rave, jungle and breakbeat, interlaced with their signature hyper-bubblegum pop production – a sound sought out by artists including Dorian Electra, That Kid and Slayyyter, where they released the 2019 hit, ‘Crush On U’. Following two triple j Mix Ups, check out the hugely successful ‘2 Pop’ Soundcloud mix series. A national support for Kim Petras, Rina Sawayama, Umru & Petal Supply Australian tours only further demonstrating donatachi’s demand as hyperpop’s most notable Down Under!
US pop disruptor Ashnikko (she/they) has recently announced the hotly anticipated debut album WEEDKILLER will be released on Friday 2 June via Warner Music Australia, pre-order here. WEEDKILLER is a collection of irresistible songs that perfect the bold, genre-blending sound that has defined Ashnikko’s work to date. The WEEDKILLER universe that Ashnikko has created is a dystopian fantasy that tells the story of a fae civilization occupied and destroyed by machines that feed on organic matter where the faerie protagonist seeks revenge by becoming part machine – a poetic commentary on environmental disaster and the rapid evolution of technology. Full of equal parts naked vulnerability and joyful rebellion, WEEDKILLER gives a thundering voice to the oppressed.
Ashnikko has released a new single ‘Worms’, which despite its bouncy alt-pop beat has a dark undertone. Crafted as an artistic commentary on Earth’s environmental disaster and the rapid evolution of technology, the new video takes places within a Mad Max-esqué dystopian universe as Ashnikko becomes part machine in order to battle against the titular robotic Weedkiller enemies.
Along with her recent release ‘You Make Me Sick!’, these two tracks mark a new era for Ashnikko as they showcase the breadth of her musical prowess and how they fearlessly shift between genres with ease.
