What's Your Sound — Fortunes.

What’s Your Sound is a new, intimate video series shining a spotlight on and exploring the unique musical world created by Australian musicians, DJs and producers. Before neo-soul/R&B duo Fortunes. head to Los Angeles, we caught up with them in their Melbourne studio to hear about their writing process and their
far-flung inspirations from childhood drumming classes to furniture, Chicago: the Musical and everything in between.

Hailing originally from New Zealand, Conor McCabe and Barnaby Matthews have created a buzz in their adopted home town of Melbourne in the four short years of working together with their day-dreamy, sunset jams and tongue-in-cheek storytelling. After a chance run in at a house party, the duo were formed when Conor sang a D'Angelo song to a recently production-obsessed Barnaby. Their unusual style is reflected in their contagious, heartfelt and relatable music, whether it's creating a sparkling pop anthem in an ode to denim '501s' , or crafting darker bedroom sounds in 'Linen' or capturing a crush in their 2014 breakout single 'Keeper'.

Listen to the Fortunes. EP 'Undress' here.

No stranger to the live stage, Fortunes. have supported some of electronic music's finest in Shlohmo, Kllo, Lapsley, Kilo Kish and JMSN and played Splendour In the Grass, Laneway, Let Them Eat Cake, and now, signed to renowned label Future Classic, are heading to the USA to write their debut album. Don't miss their Melbourne Farewell show on June 23rd at Howler with Saatsuma and Minorfauna — tickets available here.
