Each week the Monday Mix showcases three brand new songs from the opbmusic broadcast. This week we feature tracks from two New York-based rock bands and a duo from Australia.

Beach Fossils - Saint Ivy Brooklyn’s Beach Fossils are known for their lo-fi dream-pop sound, and with “Saint Ivy,” the most recent single from their upcoming album, Somersault, the group adds a string arrangement and a jazzy flute solo to the mix. In a tweet, Beach Fossils dedicated the song to New York City and the accompanying video celebrates their home and that city’s diversity. Somersault is out on June 2nd and Beach Fossils is coming to the Holocene on July 12th.

Charly Bliss - Percolator
After generating some buzz with their 2014 EP and a handful of singles, Brooklyn-based Charly Bliss has released their debut full length, Guppy. The album’s tight, power/pop punk sound brings to mind some of the best of 1990s rock. On “Percolater,” lead singer Eva Hendrick’s voice is girlishly bubbly and gives just the right amount of youthful ferocity to the hurried guitar riffs and catchy hooks. See them at Mississippi Studios on May 8th.

Husky - Ghost
Melbourne, Australia band Husky has released the first song from their upcoming third LP, Punchbuzz. The incredibly danceable track “Ghost” finds this duo (cousins Husky Gawenda and Gideon Preiss) digging into ringing synths and reflecting on the people and places from their homeland. According to a press release, the track “…was part of a process of coming to terms with this half asleep, half awake, somewhere between the haunted past and the sunlit possibility of tomorrow.” Punchbuzz is out on June 2nd. Watch our session with Husky from last year.
