Today’s track of the day comes from Perth post-punk quartet New Talk: ‘Amytis’ is out today. Gothic vocals over lush guitarscapes provide a powerful platform for the song’s themes of mistreatment of both First Nations peoples of Australia and also the migrants. The song’s title refers to “he legend of Amytis who, being sated by her husband King Nebuchadnezzar II, had the Hanging Gardens of Babylon built for her to remind her of her homeland”.

The single is taken from forthcoming LP ‘Time & Memory’, slated for release on Friday 12th February 2021.
