Love the leader, love the leader. Buckets of blood. You get the idea. This is a moody masterpiece really, with it’s dark undertones and badass beat. I feel like I’m in a video game, somehow trapped but finding ways out. This music is so trippy but I like it.
‘’Last City Of England’’ is the lead single off the new 2nd album by Ortaka, continuing to explore an eclectic range of influences and techniques, songs and instrumentals. He describes his music as Indie Rock/ Electronic and I feel like it should be called Ortaka music.
This is really fascinating music and the full album is set for release on 29th May 2020. Instrumentals, drum and bass to noise rock influences are a plenty here. I would love to jam out with good friends like my buddy Dan to this as he’s such a huge drum & bass fan.
I like the ruggedness of the ‘Orteka’ creations and I can’t quite work it all out. Perhaps that is the point, you aren’t supposed to. Just enjoy it and listen at a very high volume.
This is an artist not to be ignored so click here on the SoundCloud link and be amazed.

The Central Coast-based transient music collective Dattilo who are quite known for their knack for producing songs that have lots of metaphorical lyrics and cool poetical rhymes. Dattilo has just released their newest single Montreal – a bluesy, bossa nova story about a search for home and a celebration of the city itself. This is a song that exudes lots of chilled memory of nostalgia, the longing of home and everything beautiful therein that makes it a very special place to always visit.
Pioneered by the core lyricist, performer and a songwriter, Ellika. Dattilo is constantly discovering itself as it brings musicians together around Ellika’s central message to focus on the power of poetic messages whilst creating something bigger than itself.
Dattilo’s newest single, Montreal, was inspired by a visit to Ellika’s birth city upon finding that the visit didn’t fulfil her desire to feel at home. Although disappointed by the lack of familiarity experienced on the visit, Ellika wanted to write a piece to celebrate the city’s 375th birthday, and so Montreal was written.
Being in the same category of few musicians that practice “Nothing-Behind-The-Music” style is perhaps what added some pinch of flavour to their uniqueness. Just like Sia, Dattilo holds a no face fame principle so that listeners will identify Dattilo with ‘the word in their song’, and the uniquely written signature flare it has to bring.
The concept, the aesthetic, the lyrics, the sound are the features that will most definitely tickle your fancy in this song.
If you’re a poet at heart, a lover of beautiful stories and an all-genre-music enthusiast that’s got a good dose of keenness for musical spontaneity then you’ll definitely enjoy this song.
