Newly initiated alternative pop singer-songwriter, Bri Clark, comes to us from Western Australia and has already started getting a few plays on Triple J Unearthed/ Triple J Radio with her new track Never Far Enough.

The Creases Talk 'Gradient ‘Live’

Our mood distorts the way we appreciate music. Listen to a sombre song when you’re in high spirits and it will pull you down, just a tad . Listen to the same song when you’re feeling rather tense and if its vibes parallel what you are feeling, then it succeeds in striking a memorable chord with you.
