The highly anticipated LIFECHANGER will be released in the US January 1, 2019, by Uncork’d Entertainment and in Canada by Raven Banner Entertainment.

Written and directed by Justin McConnell, LIFECHANGER tells of a murderous shape-shifter that sets out on a blood-soaked mission to make things right with the woman he loves.

Drew has an identity problem. Every few days, has to shape-shift, or face a painful death. He has to find someone and make a copy. He takes everything: their looks, memories, hopes, and dreams. Their entire life. He becomes them, and they die horribly. Enter Julia, the object of Drew’s affection. How can he make things right when he’s never the same person for very long? How do you gain back trust when who you are keeps changing? Part psychological thriller, part body horror, Lifechanger follows one shape-shifters’ twisted quest to repair the damage he’s caused, while leaving a trail of bodies in his wake.

LIFECHANGER is written and directed by Justin McConnell, and produced by Avi  Federgreen and McConnell.

Budding singer songwriter Bri Clark is making waves across the Australian music scene with her latest single ‘Giving Up’. The Perth artist quickly captured the attention of the industry when the track was nominated for the 2018 Vanda & Young songwriting competition prior to its official release in September. Debuting at #1 for its first two weeks in the world on the triple j unearthed charts, the track was added to Spotify’s New Music Friday AU & NZ and the New Alt Indie playlists. ‘Giving Up’ has had an instantaneous effect on the Australian music community. After rallying a wake of fans from far and wide with her haunting vocals, brooding melodies and dark pop vibes Bri Clark is excited to share a new live video of the powerful song as well as treat her East Coast audience to a pair of intimate upcoming performances.

Crafting a sound that is entirely of its own ilk, Bri Clark channels a sense of heavy weightlessness on ‘Giving Up’. The single is a reflective memoir of a crumbling relationship that builds from soft, beckoning guitar strumming to soaring heights of layered vocal harmonies. The new live video from John Aliaga recorded at Vision Studios, Perthsees the young artist stripping the layered production back to its raw beginnings of just Bri, her voice and her fingertips. Seated at a grand piano with nothing but a peppering of warm tungsten bulbs, the performance is an exquisite taste of what’s to come at her live shows.

As an inaugural recipient of APRA’s female songwriter mentorship in 2018, Bri has had the opportunity to work and collaborate with a spread of fellow musicians and industry professionals and most recently featured on the well-received single ‘What We’ve Done’by Angus Dawson. Fresh off the back of the APRA AMCOS SongHubs intensive song writing boot camp, a standout performance at Bigsound’s Songwriter Showcase, and WA’s annual WAMFestBri Clark is thrilled to finally venture across the way to treat Melbourne and Sydney to a pair of intimate live shows this November. She will also take part in Specific Music’s 50 Songs In 5 Days, an APRA AMCOS sponsored, invite only songwriting event which brings together world-class songwriters, artists and producers.

With a voice steeped in pain, yet undeniably mesmerising Bri Clark can capture and hold a room in the palm of her hand. Do not miss your chance to catch this noteworthy name in Australian music. Expect big things.

Alt-indie folk duo The Short Fall, have been working on this track for almost five yearsand with the passing of their long time friend and producer, they’re ready to release a fresh, new sound, Under the Clouds.

The Conway brothers have been holding this track on the back-burner, having written it for their first EP yet cut the track as it didn’t quite match their earlier sound. Four and a half years later, a total rework and The Short Fall are ready to showcase their fresh, new sound to their awaiting audience.

On face value, Under the Clouds is reminiscent of a vague unrequited love story, still with a dark underlying tone twisted within; inspired by The Police’s Every Breath You Take, yet their lyrical ambiguity leaves it up to you to form a meaning of your own from the single.

Travelling down to Byron Bay, they worked hard on recreating the track with ARIA Award winning producer Jordan Power – Angus & Julia Stone, Xavier Rudd, Kasey Chambers, The Living End – and marking their first time in studio since the passing of long-termcollaborator, friend and producer Anthony Lycenko in August 2017.

“I don’t think we’d stopped to process just how much Anthony’s death had affected usuntil we were driving to Byron Bay. For us it was dipping our toe back in the waterafter quite a long time away from the studio. The experience was quite cathartic; in a way,a piece of Anthony is in this song, as we’d worked on it with him all those years ago when we originally wrote it (it was written for our first EP) so it͛s sort of come full circle,” said Angelo Conway, of the recording process.

Even though they’re now living in two different areas of The Sunny State, Angelo and Ryan Conway haven’t let distance get in their way of expressing their like-minded wavelength in song-writing and harmonies.

With the time that has passed, The Short Fall have taken on a new vision for their track; taking elements of the past and mixing it with current ideas & sound to createUnder the Clouds.

Under the Clouds is set for release Friday, November 2nd!
