Why do we like this?
I love second chances. I came ever so close to writing about Melbourne super-group Dorsal Fins' debut single "Nothing Left to Hide" a few months back, but life (and probably a touch of laziness) means that my review was still sitting in drafts. So, when their new single hit my inbox last week, I immediately flagged it for a listen when I got home.

"Fell" was definitely worth the click of my mouse, and makes me feel even more guilty about the "Nothing Left to Hide" debacle. Slow and entrancing to begin with, the track really gets going when one of the more slinky bass lines you'll come across kicks in. The Bamboos' Ella Thompson (who also performs as Axolotl) has waify vocals that drift throughout a maze of delicate keys, laid-back percussion, and a number of brilliant trumpet flourishes.

Dorsal Fins is a collective of friends and music collaborators set up by Saskwatch songwriter and trumpeter Liam McGorry, and their unique style and song creation should be applauded. Make sure to keep an eye out for their upcoming Gripless EP release in early April.

I sure hope they forgive my laziness one day.
