Australia has become one of my favorite places for music. I can’t read a blog without finding something new from down under.

Hoodlem is the latest Aussie act to blow my speakers. The hip-hop influenced single, “Through” delivers an impressive beat, however the vocal arrangement is what really won me over. The track features an anonymous songstress who follows a multi-layered beat flawlessly. It is almost like a musical game of cat and mouse.

Although it is hard to make out what she is saying, the speedy key changes and progressive melodies provide a nice touch to the backing production.

I am eager to hear more from the mysterious newcomers who only 4 days ago premiered this explosive debut single.
