Big Sync celebrates three of its music supervisors from France, Sweden and Australia
Radio LBB: Big Sync on Tour

Today we’re celebrating three of Big Sync’s music supervisors from very different parts of the world - Alex Carlsson-Norlin from our Swedish office, Michael Szumowski from our new office in Sydney and Nicolas Farcy from our other new office in Paris. Alex has been with us since 2015 while Nicolas and Michael joined our global network this week.

They have shared with us some of their favourite music by artists that originate from their countries of Sweden, France and Australia. So our playlist today is a striking mash-up of some totally different sounds from totally different places - both past and present. We hope you enjoy!

Alex highlights a track called ‘The Gardener’ by The Tallest Man on Earth, an artist from the north of Sweden: “This song is a good example of why I love really listening to lyrics. To the disengaged listener this is just a normal love song but it's really about a murderer who's killing anyone who’s a threat to his love, meanwhile he’s fertilising the roses.”

Meanwhile on the other side of the world Michael’s brought us and commented on an eclectic selection of Aussie music, including:

‘Heavy Hearted’ by The Jungle Giants: “Hailing from sunny QLD this band has a knack for crafting indie pop and this track is their latest gem.”

‘Ubu’ by Methyl Ethel: “This Perth based band proves that the geographically most isolated city on the planet produces some of the countries finest talent.”

‘Come Party’ by Polish Club: “The rock duo from Melbourne that know how to write a hook and are killer live.”

‘Grandma’s Hands’ by Meg Mac: “This cover of the Bill Withers classic by local soul singer Meg Mac is brilliant. Produced by Gold Coast uber producer M-Phazes.”

‘The Clap’ by The Chats: “Punk rock band from the Sunshine Coast .. nuff said.” 

‘Cloud 9’ by Baker Boy: “I got to see this Indigenous Hip Hop artist from Darwin at Big Sound a few years back .. this track was his killer debut.”

‘Your Love’ by Middle Kids: “Indie rock band from Sydney. There’s a real Pretenders/Fleetwood Mac vibe here. Finely crafted song-writing on show here.”
