Listen to the unique sounds of Australia with YouTube Music
You Tube has partnered with local heroes from across the country to capture their Neighbourhood Sounds – the music at the heart of their communities.
13 curators have taken on the challenge of personally handpicking the unique sounds of their suburbs, with the playlists now up on YouTube Music. It is a music streaming device built on top of all the music on YouTube that you can’t find elsewhere.
“I think music is an important part of everyone’s culture. It affects and connects mood and reflects the personality of a community.” – Brenda Miley, Bondi local, and Competition Director at Bondi Girls Surf Riders, and Founder and Director of Let’s Go Surfing
These newest playlists contain more than 34 hours of songs, having over 80 per cent from Aussie artists, and feature official tracks, covers, live recordings, and remixes.
From Windsor, Newtown, Abbotsford, Fremantle, Bondi, Salamanca or Alice Springs, there is a special beat that pulses through communities that both locals and travellers can recognise, and now listen to.
Search your neighbourhood on YouTube Music to find your local sounds or create your own playlist that represents your ‘hood.
“There are a lot of amazing artists who pass through our neighbourhood. Most of them leave a mark with a song, a picture or a performance that will go down in history.” – Clint Hyndman from Windsor, drummer/musician, and owner of Yellow Bird Cafe
