Listen, Mate: We’re Starting Fresh And Local

Sometimes on a Friday, you need a seriously good playlist to take you into the weekend. Here at Collarts, we love Australian music and the inspiration it can bring our students. From audio production to artist management, every upcoming artist has their own story to tell and the lessons they can bring. Curating our favourite new releases, we’ve kicked-off an official Spotify account to share the latest and greatest songs in the Australian music community. Listen, Mate marks our first playlist series, where we’ll be selecting music to set themes, moods and mixes. Listen, Mate: Fresh And Local is our big love letter to local music—from the thumping melodies of Sampa The Great to the clashing in-your-face lyrics of Boat Show—we love a good banger, mosh, chill, boogie and shoey in no order whatsoever.
