Marking the first release on new singles label House Arrest Records, Oakland based artist Day Wave has just revealed his new single ‘Come Home Now’. A spellbinding recipe of lo-fi, sun drenched instrumentation, catchy oohs and ohs, and Day Wave’s (aka Jackson Phillips) reverb laden swirling vocal melodies – this is another superb addition to his ever-expending catalogue. Stream the new one below.
After their big arrival a few months back, The Big Moon are back, in a big way (sensing a theme here). New single ‘The Road‘ finds them really hitting their stride. Not quite as ferocious as their debut ‘Sucker‘, but equally as hard-hitting and enjoyable. It’s another bold step for a band who are probably/definitely on their way to bigger things. Big.
After having a disastrously busy morning of meetings this morning, it was a wonderful escape to get back to my comfy office chair and turn on this new single from London’s Leo Kalyan. A splendid blend of chill-wave and bouncy, tropical electronic pop, new single ‘Get Your Love‘ has got plenty of crossover appeal, and is set for an official release on October 23rd on Believe. Stream it below.
I mean, Honne are sure to be something monumentally huge this time next year. They’ve already piqued the interest of pretty much every online music outlet in existence over the past twelve months, and now they’re preparing to release their new EP ‘Over Lover’, out tomorrow. Today they’ve dropped the second track to be heard from said EP, this one entitled ‘No Place Like Home’, featuring the gorgeous Jones, on additional vocals. If Honne’s luscious blend of soul, and sensual electronic pop hasn’t already wormed its way into your music collection, then, you can bet your bottom dollar that that won’t be the case in 12 months time. Stream ‘No Place Like Home’ below, with the equally brilliant ‘Loves The Jobs You Hate’ a little below that.
After a sublime Bank Holiday Weekend, we’re back and everything’s feeling very #Monday***. Just had a very nice new video pop up in my feed, courtesy of Australian newcomer Owen Rabbit. Conjuring up something of a storm with recent track ‘Holy Holy‘, he’s now shared a psychedelic video accompaniment which can be viewed below. Mr Rabbit’s sound is a striking amalgamation of blistering electronica, jazz, and R&B, with hints of soul peeking through in the slightly unpolished vocal. It’s a hugely promising offering from the young Aussie – sure to be making a bit of a name for himself in the months to come.
***I realise it’s Tuesday.
More sultry electronic pop coming direct from Copenhagen, from the very very lovely Chinah. We’ll no doubt being going back to this one a fair few times. Stream the trio’s new one, ‘We Go Back‘ below, and their wonderfully received debut ‘Away From Me‘ a bit below that. Really nice stuff.
I was having a nice little discussion about this chap Tuesday just gone, and it’s taken me a while to get round to writing a little something up. The track in question just so happens to also be doing rather well on The Hype Machine at the mo. With an almighty chorus, and a hugely infectious vocal, ‘Say Sumthin‘, is a monumentally impressive pop/R&B track, courtesy of the very talented Zak Abel. His new EP ‘One Hand On The Future’ is out now.
One of the finest producers to arrive on the scene in the last 2 years is young Tom Misch, and yesterday he officially released his much-anticipated ‘Beat Tape 2‘ long player (which, btw is really, really good). Below you’ll find a recently revealed highlight ‘Your Love‘, featuring fellow Londoner Alexa Harley.
East London dwelling duo Fine Print have just dropped the final track from their forthcoming self-titled EP. The new track is called ‘Really‘ and sees the pair continuing to dip their toes into R&B, jazz, funk and electro pop – all marrying together to create something really quite nice. The EP’s out tomorrow, and a lovely little 10″ vinyl can be purchased over at B3Sci’s store. Stream the new one below, and various other cuts from the EP below that.
Serious talent right here, Straight Outta Stockholm. 2016 could well be LÉON‘s year. Check out ‘Nobody Cares‘ below, and then previous banger ‘Tired Of Talking’ a little further down.
