Eliza Hull has been kicking around for a while. Her work has never really grabbed me in the past I must say. It's always been strong electronic infused pop music, but maybe I just wasn't listening properly. Coz then this happened. There is this beautiful restraint in 'Echoes'. Eliza's voice has a big early Sia vibe (think [...]
'Stay’ is Tully on Tully’ s first collaboration where Melbourne artist Hayden Calnin was invited to lend his voice on the track and also appear in the video clip, check it out above. Featuring infectious vocals by Natalie Foster. From their early beginnings in mid 2011 Melbourne’s Tully on Tully caught the attention of both fans and critics alike with their unique blend of progressive folk pop. Their previous single ‘Hard to breathe’ was awarded ‘Single of the Week’ in Beat Magazine and the band picked as ‘FBi Radio's Unsigned Artist Of The Week’. Follow up single [...]
A couple of days late, but the move up to Sydneytown and the getting back into uni has taken over! But, of course, still looking for every excuse to post on maamf! These are the tracks that got me through January, a pretty massive month for me. So to those bands/artists below, thanks heaps! As [...]
Five-piece, indie-pop group, Tully On Tully can’t seem to write a track worthy of below 9 out of 10 stars. The group has been performing at small shows in Melbourne for over a year, perhaps quietly preparing their fans for this huge release. "Stay" features the vocal assistance of well-loved Australian solo artist, Hayden Calnin and is upbeat and fun, yet secretly reveals a slight vulnerability towards the end of the track. The “sparse instrumentation, crispy production and catchy progression” lead "Stay" to swell in your head for [...]

We introduced you to Melbourne's Hayden Calnin about a month ago, and on September 19th I got to attend his intimate EP release show at FBi Social at the Kings Cross Hotel, which also marked his first headlining show in Sydney. After an adorable proposal onstage, Hayden Calnin took the stage and took the audience on a journey of gorgeous, mesmerizing music. The Melbourne native explained that while he usually has a small backing band, their car broke down en route to Sydney, leaving him alone onstage with a guitar, a [...]

Having premiered on Triple J , the video further intensifies what was already an intense song. The video, edited by the singer/songwriter himself, shows a mysterious Calnin in a series of clips along the beach, in a fashion that makes the track so beautifully haunting. [...]
I saw you as you were. The red hue on your cheeks. Your glistening eyes. Your silhouette as you walked away from me forever. But hope keeps us alive, and I never stopped smiling. Who am I without the white of my teeth? Hayden Calnin on SoundCloud | Facebook
When you think of Australian music, you probably think of edgy rock music ( AC/DC , Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds , Wolfmother ) or dancy synth-pop ( Cut Copy , Tame Impala , The Presets ). Rarely do you think of gorgeous acoustic music. But that's where newcomer Hayden Calnin comes in. Hayden Calnin , another Melbourne-based act, is [...]
Gestatten, Hayden Calnin, der Justin Vernon Australiens. Von Zeit zu Zeit hört man einen Song, der einen mit offenem Mund stehen lässt. So geschehen bei "For My Help" von Hayden Calnin . Der junge Multiinstrumentalist hat einen Abschluss als Produzent und hat letzte Woche seine Schlafzimmer-Produktion "City" als EP veröffentlicht ( hier für fünf Franken herunterladen ). Bon Iver und James Blake sind naheliegende Vergleiche. Dennoch hat Calnin natürlich auch noch andere Facetten zu bieten. Sein Folk-Tronic-Entwurf wirkt noch um einiges [...]
Writing for EARMILK , I often stumble across new bands who leave me impressed, I don’t however find myself as completely enraptured as I am with Australian artist, Hayden Calnin . The singer/song-writer’s progressive-folk sound will quickly, and justifiably, draw comparisons to talents such as Bon Iver and James Blake , a testament to the burgeoning artist’s musical virtuosity. Majoring in sound design at university, Hayden used this knowledge to record and produce his debut City EP, which is now available digitally at iTunes . Although being a “bedroom producer”, [...]

Words by Alean Penaflor As Hayden Calnin and I step out of the Workers Club for our chat, a small huddle of people start cheering at the nearby tram stop. It’s apparent they’d also witnessed this incredibly talented young man perform minutes before. Taken back and even slightly embarrassed by the attention, Calnin chuckles and politely asks around for a light. One of the girls from the tram stop approaches with lighter in hand and admits in awe, “your music warms my soul”. For discerning passers by this may [...]

Melbourne quartet Kins played a large role in why i started my first blog, which grew to this site. It goes without saying that i believe they are one of the finest acts to come out of Australia. A short time ago, they released a beautiful clip to their latest single off their upcoming LP, written in Brighton, UK. Also included is Witch Hats clip to 'In The Mortuary' which was taken from their acclaimed album Pleasure Syndrome . Twerps , it's only a matter of time until these guys take over the world, in the meantime, watch their [...]
