Oyster Playlist: Collarbones
This playlist is called 'A Grade Seven School Disco is Gatecrashed by a Group of Berlin Ravers Wearing Leather Harnesses'.
Describing themselves as "<3 long distance internet teen pop <3" Marcus Whale and Travis Cook are Collarbones, an electronic duo who live between Sydney and Adelaide. They're on the line-up for this year's Outside In Festival, presented by Astral People and Yes Please (happening on Saturday 10 November in Sydney). Playing alongside them are Harlem's Smoke DZA, Jesse Boykins III, Oliver Tank, HTRK, Flume and more! Goodgod will also have a special tropical-themed outdoor stage on the night. Sounds like one of the better emerging festivals, no? Tomorrow night at The Standard in Sydney, they will also be launching their sophomore album, Die Young. Anyways, here's Collarbones explaining their choices for this very special playlist, 'A Grade Seven School Disco is Gatecrashed by a Group of Berlin Ravers Wearing Leather Harnesses':
Sometimes school discos are gatecrashed by ravers in bondage gear. Sometimes guilty pleasures aren't actually guilty whatsoever. Sometimes you have a Hilary Duff poster from a 2003 issue of TV Hits overlooking your bed. Sometimes you can't say no. Sometimes wrong feels so right. Sometimes a pop hit from Carly Rae Jepsen is basically interchangeable with Ministry of Sound's Trance Nation compilation. Sometimes 'music transcends all boundaries'. Sometimes you just appreciate tween hits just as genuinely as everything else and need to come up with a ridiculous sentence to justify all of it for your Oyster playlist.
