Hayden Calnin Announces New EP; Shares Single Feat. Nick Aqcuroff
Today, Melbourne-based electro-folk singer, songwriter, and producer Hayden Calnin shares his new single, “The Way Back Up,” which features fellow Australian artist Nick Acquroff. Hayden explains, “Nick and I have been playing music together for years whenever we’ve gotten a chance to, and we thought it was about time to lay one of our songs down and let people have a listen. We were both living down the southern coastline of Australia, and I had Nick over one night for some dinner and drinks. Naturally, we ended up in the studio a bit later on writing and recording. That seemed to be pretty common practice for us when we would hang out, and this was a track that really resonated with us. It sat on a hard drive for 2 years, and I opened it up one day on my computer and thought it was too bloody good not to finish, so I gave it a good mix, and this was the result. Nick is such an incredible guy, and I’m just super stoked to be putting out a collaboration with my mate, it’s awesome. Mates are awesome. Writing songs with mates and releasing them is even more awesome.”

White explains, “I couldn’t identify the sensation; it was like imagining ocean creatures flying in space thinking that they were probably angels. That’s the imagery that came to mind when writing the song.”
Rock Artist RIIVER BRUKES releases “Reformed Soul” & Drop When Tomorrow Comes (Official Music Video)
‘This song was inspired by an elderly couple walking through my local village. They were desperately trying to hold each other’s hand as the old woman struggled to push the frail man in his wheelchair. Clearly unable or unwilling to lose sight of each other – even for a moment. It was perhaps the most beautiful and yet, the most sad thing to witness: Uncertainty, love, vulnerability and precious time – all rolled into a few brief seconds. I knew that they didn’t have much time left together… but then again, I wondered what rich history they had shared…’ Riiver Brukes
