Hailing from Brisbane, neo soul 4-piece Pink Matter have released their debut track Quicksand, thanks to the help of Industry Connect workshops!
Their single premiered on music website Purple Sneakers, who described it as “reminiscent of your fave dimly lit bar with flickering candles and well-earned glass of red, ‘Quicksand’ begins to take over your body”.
Through the program the band met and worked with QMusic Program Manager Trina Massey to develop a strategic music release timeline.
“Fusing jazz, soul and beats, Pink Matter are an incredibly driven and exciting young act, showcasing the talent and diversity within the Brisbane music community,” Massey said.
Last year Raywood was awarded the BIGSOUND Bursary for the Brisbane region. For attending 80% or more sessions within the program, four Industry Connect participants receive the full BIGSOUND experience, including a delegate pass, flights and accommodation.
“It’s a great to get solid information from people are who full time industry experts and for meeting other people that attend the workshops.”Pink Matter
