SCA is launching 10 all-new DAB+ music stations on LiSTNR, taking the number of music stations to 25.
The 10 new stations have been created to cater to a variety of moods and genres within the LiSTNR app.
SCA Head of Music, Mickey Maher, said: “Music has such an amazing power, it can influence our moods, connect us to a time and place, be a companion, be the life of the party, and expose our ears and minds to a new world of sounds and genres.
With LiSTNR, our aim is to deliver something for everyone, music to suit your mood, your lifestyle, the genres you love or the new ones you will soon discover – 25 diverse, curated music stations ready to consume your ears whenever and wherever you are.”
KIDS HITS is a commercial free, safe, non-stop kids’ paradise with tunes from the 70s to today to keep young children aged 4-10 dancing and singing along to everything from Disney favourites to classics such as Elton John’s Crocodile Rock.
Featuring the greatest hits from the 70s, 70’s HITS will showcase the very best from the decade, from the Eagles to Fleetwood Mac, the Jacksons, Bob Seger and Little River Band.
Every song on the new GIRL POWER station will have you up out of your seat. This station focuses on our female contemporaries, with a nod to the founding mothers of the 80s, to the sisters of today, showcasing artists including Madonna, Beyonce, Dua Lipa, Pink, Miley Cyrus, and Katy Perry.
From swing to soul, CROONERS + SWOONERS will deliver a playlist of softer 50s and 60s pop, with older jazz standards, through to contemporary covers from Michael Bublé, Rod Stewart, Jamie Callum and Harry Connick Jr. Think Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin alongside Norah Jones and Amy Winehouse.
Celebrating the diverse and exciting contemporary musical landscape of Australia’s First Nations people, INDIGENOUS will feature current artists including Budgerah, The Kid Laroi, Baker Boy, Jessica Mauboy, Thelma Plum, Isaiah Firebrace, Briggs, Dan Sultan, Archie Roach, Gurrumul, Mambali and JK-47, as well as storytellers of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people’s music, and Australian artists paying respect and addressing social issues through song by Troy Caser-Daley, Midnight Oil and Paul Kelly, to name a few.
Embracing the quirky hits from the 80s, 90s and 2000s that topped the charts and then have gone, but not been forgotten, GUILTY PLEASURES allows you to bop along to songs like Lou Bega’s Mambo No.5, Scissor Sisters’ I Don’t Feel Like Dancing and timeless tracks such as Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ Come on Eileen and OMC’s How Bizarre with absolutely no judgement.
The 90’S SOFT POP station will provide easy listening from a decade jam packed with catchy tracks from artists including Janet Jackson, Savage Garden, Seal, All Saints, TLC and Train.
INDIE & ALT will feature indie and alternative hits and anthems from the 2000s to today, featuring artists such as Twenty One Pilots, The Rubens, Billie Eilish, Royal Blood, the Kid Laroi, Imagine Dragons, Machine Gun Kelly and Tame Impala.
JAZZ will provide the perfect ragtime playlist celebrating a large array of jazz sub genres and artists such as Billie Holiday, Dizzie Gillespie, Chet Baker, John Coltrane, Ella Fitzgerald and Miles Davis.
The new romantics are back in fashion and are showcased with 80s NEW WAVE; think shoulder pads, and even bigger synthesizers, alongside tracks from Soft Cell, Depeche Mode and Duran Duran.
