Josh Pyke, the Veronicas, Lime Cordiale and more: Australian music for isolated times


As some states begin to slowly open back up, Australia’s arts industry is still largely in lockdown – and the music industry was hit harder, and earlier, than most others. But until large gatherings and gigs happen again, there are small things you can do: it’s an imperfect solution, but streaming Australian music can help.

Each week, in partnership with Sounds Australia, Guardian Australia will add some 15 new songs to a playlist for you to put on repeat.

“Australian music needs all the help it can get right now,” says Sounds Australia’s Dom Alessio, who chose the songs for this playlist from artists who’ve played Sounds Australia events.

“Streaming an Australian song might seem like a really small and insignificant thing to do, but artists get paid when you listen to them, and cumulatively it can have a big impact.”
