Hunter DeBlanc – Sydney

Sometimes we hear a new song that makes our ears prick up instantly, the song grabs all our attention and we stop what we are doing to listen and groove along. That is the reaction I had when I heard Hunter DeBlancs new single “Sydney”.

For those of you who are new to Hunters music, it’s got that rad retro influence that never goes out of style. Sydney blends a cool array of synth-pop sounds and Hunters vocal draws us in from the opening line “forgive me” before exploding into a golden mix of INXS style guitar licks and that big dance floor beat. The production is aurally impressive, it’s a sound fit to dominate radio stations and dancefloors around the world – because we just can’t get enough!

The lyrics reflect on Hunters wild weekends and late nights drinking and going off the deep end as he makes reference to his escape to a big city down under, sailing out past the iconic opera house. It’s clever, catchy and cool as f*k! This song is an anthem and will surely have people of all ages throwing their hands in the air and singing along. It’s that secret formula to a killer song that Hunter has unlocked in Sydney – it’s got feeling, it’s got soul and it connects with us in the heart all the while making us dance, sing along and go crazy.

Hunter is a well-seasoned singer and instrumentalist one that can back up his recorded performance very well on the live stage, he’s a mad talent and has certainly nailed it in this pumping track. It’s only a matter of time before Sydney goes viral, perhaps by the time I have finished posting this review.

S3 Saba Brothers – Walk Away

Listen to the song review here:


There is something extra special about family members combining their creative talents in the musical form, there is a synchronicity and connection that shines brightly which is exactly what I felt when I listened to the single “Walk Away” from Sydney based Trio S3 Saba Brothers.

Walk Away is the first single taken from the debut EP “Life” and is surely just the beginning of big things to come for this bright, sharp and incredibly talented band of brothers. The message in this song is one of empowerment and positivity something that is consistent throughout allot of S3’s music. Musically the song has a groove reminiscent of bands like The Living End and Greenday but still remains unique with the boys carving out their own dynamic flavour and sound.

The live performance video the Saba Brothers have released for Walk Away shows their energy and showmanship as a live band, the passion displayed in their live show is infectious and has everyone in the crowd involved. It’s hard to believe that Nathan the lead singer and bass player is only 14 years old and brothers Stephen and Raymond still in their late teens. The rocking beats and rhythm of Walk Away had me dialing up my master volume for full effect!

With a trip onto their social media sites to look a bit more into the history of Saba Brothers and I can see there is something really exciting developing here, the boys are a hard working unit already hitting the road, touring the east coast and finding a strong online presence. There is really no limits for these boys, with the power of positivity in there sound and the connection shared as a family we can expect to see more great music and big things coming from the S3 Saba Brothers camp! Rock on boys!
