If this single from the Temper Trap's debut Conditions is any indication, the Australian outfit is set to be just as big in the rest of the world as they are in Melbourne. This song's ethereal vibe fits well into the scene where the likes of Passion Pit and M83 already reside.
The Big Pink - "Dominos"
The soothing repetition of the phrase "these girls fall like dominos" somehow overrides any narcissism the line might contain. It's a haunting chant from the UK duo, who are currently touring with Muse.
Miike Snow - "Song For No One"
The collaboration between remix-masters Bloodyshy & Avant and singer Andrew Wyatt, Miike Snow pair breathy vocals with a plucky little guitar phrase on this laid-back track. While the jury may be out on the self-titled album, this song has just the right texture.
Cold Cave - "Life Magazine"
The infectious electro beat of Cold Cave's "Life Magazine" make it hard to shake out of your mind. While the track doesn't appear on the Philadelphia group's Cremations album, it has been released as a single.
