Top Tracks: Calais – Seeing It All

This Brisbane based band have released one of the most attention-grabbing indie singles of the year. Although this Australian outfit boast a synth driven sound akin to our own up-and-coming Blossoms, the real pull of this track lies with its chunky bass lines. I honestly can’t remember the last time I heard such sublime bass tones within a rock song. Lyrically ‘Seeing It All’ deals with a relationship that becomes so consuming, you lose all sense of self and purpose without that person, and the subsequent journey to find yourself that follows. That deeper meaning within the song is adorned with indie hooks to make the perfect playlist material. Australia has had a real musical renaissance in recent years, so keep a close eye on Calais, as they could be the country’s next great export.
