The One To Watch
Kylie Auldist - Is It Fun?
This week’s One To Watch is Kylie Auldist
Even if you don’t know her name, you will know her voice.
It’s ‘Melbourne’s High Priestess Of Soul’ Kylie Auldist’s unmistakable vocals on the 2016 global dance hit ‘This Girl’ by Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3 Burners – the track that not only topped almost every pop chart across the planet, but also featured in TV shows, adverts and films and social media memes has achieved over 1 billion streams and still climbing.
But of course, that’s far from the whole story. Kylie established her enviable reputation as the featured vocalist in the awesome Australian outfits The Bamboos, and Cookin’ On 3 Burners, and her fantastically well-received solo albums for Tru Thoughts; ‘Just Say’ (2008), ‘Made of Stone’ (2009) and ‘Still Life’ (2012) and ‘Family Tree’ Freestyle Records (2016)
Kylie’s brand new 2 track release, hits with the boogie inspired ‘Is It Fun? Taking its cues from the 80’s underground New York dance scene, the production totally nails the vibe with catchy hooks, a sing-along chorus and irresistible feel-good groove.
‘Everythink’ sets out that 1980’s electro-boogie sound and then fuses it with the songwriting of a classic Wham or Hall & Oates tune – it has an infectious, slinky Moog synth bassline that will lodge itself in people’s minds. Kylie’s simply stunning vocal performance on this breezy and summery tune will surely make it a future classic.
As a taste of further joys to come from the forthcoming full-length album ‘This Is What Happiness Looks Like’ – ‘Is It Fun?’ easily answers it’s own question!
