RADAR: Thelma Plum

Aussie singer/songwriter Thelma Plum keeps things simple, down to earth and just a bit profane on her completely disarming and charming folk/pop songs. Just when you're getting pulled in by her sweet voice and the buoyant melody on her single "Around Here" you get gobsmacked with the irreverent sing-along chorus of "la-dee-dah-dee-dah-dee-dah...f--k you." Yet, somehow, Plum still makes it sounds delightfully winsome. Debut Rosie EP, released earlier this year, is a fresh, effervescent elixir of janglepop choruses delivered with a wink and smile. After a homemade demo wound up getting noticed by the tastemaking Radio J Down Unde, The Brisbane native found herself the recipient of a J Unearthed prize and some studio time to record a batch of songs.
