Like the process of photosynthesis, Melis manages to capture light and formulate a blooming of beauty with her latest single ‘Flower’ which comes as the first official release from her upcoming debut EP ‘Parallels’.
Melis previously released ‘Love Song Idea‘ to much applause, as her debut grew and flourished across the blogosphere, landing a Hype Machine #1, Spotify New Music Friday playlists and some impressive plays and streams.
Unlike ‘Love Song Idea’, which was actually a demo, saved and repaired from old instrumental stems on her breaking hard-drive, Melis shows her talent in minimalistic electronic production, a hugely intimate vocal and once again, stunningly fragile lyrics. Being in love or been in love, this song will turn the heart on, re-light your emotions and help you love deeper, or move onwards.
You can pre-order her ‘Parallels’ EP, which is very limited 10″ Vinyl, via Qrates now here.
London based Martin Luke Brown shares his first release on LAB Records.
It’s slightly more restrained than his previous single, ’65 Roses’, but this approach keeps emotional tension throughout the track, whilst Martin Luke Brown continues to showcase his expansive vocal range with the accompaniment of an organ and the rumbling of bass lines.

The Everything Everything boys are encouraging you to dance with the brilliant ‘Can’t Do’.
A sound and look we’ve come to expect from the Manchester quartet – synth-driven pop of a cinematic nature with addictive hooks. The video depicts the need to try to fit into what society deems as “normal”.
“Can’t Do” is about trying to bend to the world and fit into it. Nobody is normal, nobody knows what normal is. ‘I can’t do the thing you want’ – we don’t care we just want you to dance.” Jonathan Higgs
It’s the first track to be taken from their forthcoming new album ‘A Fever Dream’ which has been produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Depeche Mode), out 18 August on RCA Records.
Effortlessly combining apt songwriting with progressive, electronic textures, Lycio perform everything live to enhance the experience. We can’t wait to see them perform, and we’ll be playing ‘Saharan King’ during the wait.
Having already produced and mixed for artists like MGMT and The Knocks, VioletSands are gearing up to release their album, ‘Hotel’.
The third track taken from the album is called ‘Unusual’, which frontwoman Deidre Muro describes as “riding the enchanted waves of discovering something or someone new. There’s a lot of magic in that first spark of curiosity – it’s like waking up from a lifelong dream to a completely new heightened reality. This song is that moment in extreme slow motion, reveling in all the emotions, uncertainties, and intrigue.”
‘Unusual’ is out now on YouTooCanWoo. Their album launch party will be on 30 June at Rough Trade in Brooklyn.

Killer eyebrows and killer sounds from New Zealand-based electro-pop newcomer, Siobhan Sainte.
Siobhan takes her musical influence from a love of film noir, haute couture and pop culture, which all in all creates a dramatic performance. Her debut release (produced by Andy Rosen (MegMyers, OfeliaK)) is called ‘Burn It Down’. It does just that with angst-heavy demands smothered in sentiment.
