This week's feature album comes from Melbourne's 'High Priestess of Soul' Kylie Auldist with her latest release This Is What Happiness Looks Like.

The first album on Greg Boraman's brand new label Soul Bank Music (K7), this record further develops the musical approach Kylie began on its predecessor Family Tree - and is very firmly entrenched in an electro boogie tip, rooted deep in the New York club scene of the early 80s.


The opening track 'Everythink' sets out that 1980s electro-boogie sound and then fuses it with the songwriting of a classic Wham or Hall & Oates tune - it has an infectious, slinky Moog synth bass line that will lodge itself in people's minds. Kylie's simply stunning vocal performance on this breezy and summery tune will surely make it a future classic.


Soul lovers, funkateers and disco fans won't be able to stop themselves from falling deeply for this new collection of tunes, because it's not only a highly original take on a classic sound, but it was conceived, performed and recorded with genuine passion and love.

As Kylie says on the liner notes:

"Some albums are written fast, some take a long time, some albums experience setbacks, become beset by creative blocks and personal issues, and can generally be a whole lot of hard work which makes you question why you even bothered to start it in the first place - this was not one of those albums - hence the title 'This Is What Happiness Looks Like'!"


Kylie established her enviable reputation as the featured vocalist in the awesome Australian outfits The Bamboos and Cookin' On 3 Burners, as well as her fantastically well received solo albums Just Say (2008), Made of Stone (2009), Still Life (2012), and Family Tree (2016). It's Kylie's unmistakable vocals on the 2016 global dance hit 'This Girl' by Kungs vs Cookin' on 3 Burners - the track that not only topped almost every pop chart across the planet, featured in many TV shows, adverts and films and social media memes, and has achieved over 1 billion streams & climbing.
