Top 5 Albums of 2016

Throughout the year we have featured heaps of amazing, unique and diverse Australian albums.

It was difficult to narrow it down to 5, but the following are the most stand-out releases for us this year:

1) Polaris – The Guilt and The Grief

‘The Guilt and The Grief’ is the sophomore release from Sydney band Polaris; following their debut EP ‘Dichotomy’ in 2013.

2) Camp Cope – Camp Cope

Camp Cope’s debut self-titled album was released in April, 2016. We had a chat to their drummer, Sarah, about the album, which you can listen to here.

3) Dorsal Fins – Digital Zodiac

Melbourne nine-piece band Dorsal Fins have come out blazing with their new album ‘Digital Zodiac’, just over a year after their debut album release ‘Mind Renovation’.

4) Meredith – Nostalgia

Following a fantastic response to her 2015 song ‘Levels’, Brisbane singer-songwriter Meredith has wowed fans again with her new EP ‘Nostalgia’.

5) Hellions – Opera Oblivia

‘Opera Oblivia’ is the third album from Sydney band Hellions, and has intentionally been structured like a theatrical presentation.

We’re looking forward to seeing what these artists have planned for 2017.
