Tracks of the week
The pick of the week's new releases
Tinashe - Vulnerable
American R&B singer Tinashe has been building her rep over the last few years with underground-leaning mixtapes and collabs with Ryan Hemsworth and Jacques Greene. Vulnerable, from her forthcoming debut mixtape, is sensual R&B pitched from a darker place.
Pharrell Williams - Happy
If we can thank Robin Thicke for one thing, it's for bringing Pharrell's production chops back to the top.
On his own follow-up solo single, Williams sticks to sunshine soulful pop with the Curtis Mayfield-esque Happy.
The song is accompanied by a 24-hour long video.
flume & chet faker
Drop the Game - Lockjaw
Two of Australia's brightest new artists in the last two years have joined forces on a collaborative Lockjaw EP.
Flume provides the beats while Chet Faker brings the vocal hooks.
Drop The Game is delightfully future-facing R&B electronica.
