NEW RELEASE Danika Smith – Sweet Mellow D / Suit Of Armour


Northside Records is proud to present the first two singles from Danika Smith’s forthcoming album pressed on a funky 45 right here in Melbourne.

We first met Danika as a singer for the 30/70 collective back in 2014. She is also a member of the band Tomgirl who we released a 45 with back in 2017. She is an integral and important part of Melbourne’s music scene and we want you to hear her new solo music!

“Sweet Mellow D” (which comes out digitally today) is a deep haunting soulful folk song that will be on her upcoming album alongside the equally fierce B-side “Suit Of Armour”.

This will be the first ever solo vinyl release for Danika and we at Northside are thrilled to be releasing it.

Written by Danika Smith

Produced by Nick Herrera and Danika Smith

Engineered and Mixed by Nick Herrera

Mastered by Lachlan Carrick

Drums – Maria Moles

Bass – Paul Bender

Guitar/Vocals/percussion – Danika Smith

A compilation of incredible Melbourne music has been released in the UK! Gilles Peterson on his BROWNSWOOD RECORDINGS label has collected 9 amazing artists and their songs to show the world – we got game.

Its not just HIATUS KAIYOTE that shine bright like a diamond but their influence and effect has spread like funky butter.

Featuring ALLYSHA JOY, ZIGGY ZEITGEIST and HORATIO LUNA from the 30/70 music collective and then there’s KUZICH and SILENT JAY and DUFRESNE from the Mandarin Dreams family, plus more – AUDREY POWNE, PHIL STROUD and your friend and mine LANEOUS round it off. Jazzy, soulful and damn funky.

Hopefully it arrives today on gatefold double LP at $45. Digggggg the funk.
