Katherine Evans – Take It Slow
Meet 22 year old Katherine Evans. It says on her SoundCloud page that she likes to sing and sleep. We are not sure about her knack of sleeping, but she sings a damn good song!
With plenty of awards under her belt, she is far from taking it slow, unlike her new single, which is about capturing a fleeting and reckless moment.
It’s out now via Afromartian, an indie record label based in Italy.

Vera – Nobody Else
Standing firmly on his own two feet is the young Copenhagen-based Vera (aka William Asingh).
His latest single, ‘Nobody Else’, was a collaborative effort with Off Bloom, and is influenced by the Caribbean novel ‘Wide Sargasso Sea’ by Jean Rhys, which is about a landowner’s Jamaican wife who is locked up in an attic for allegedly being mad.
The ‘Good Job – No Conversation’ EP is released on 8 December through Ultra Records/Ministry of Sound.
Sounds like: Banks, Off Bloom, Soleima, MØ, Liss
FKL – 1-800
FKL is an experimental London/Seattle-based duo comprised of Joe Gillick and Sage Redman.
We’ve not heard anything like this in a long time, and can’t quite pinpoint their sound, which we think is a great thing!
So…pick up the phone, dial ‘1-800’ and order some sweet, trippy beats blended with highly seductive vocals.
Sounds like: The xx
Sacre – Stereo Feat. Dopize
Sacre are hitting some serious Drake vibes with their new single ‘Stereo’.
It’s not the usual sound we hear from the French duo, but we kind of like it. The contrast between the classic electro vocals works well with the addition of rising French artist, rapper Dopize.
Sounds like: Goldroom, Chela, Miami Horror, Autograf, The Knocks, Cut Copy
Year of the Brother – Slow One
Finally, we have the brilliant new indie-pop trio from Portland called Year of the Brother.
We are particularly excited about these guys as they seem to have something special about them. Perhaps it’s the soaring, yet delicate production? Perhaps it’s the on-point falsettos? Or perhaps it’s the enticing lyrics? You decide.
The ‘Filling Empty Pools’ EP is out now.
Sounds like: Kyko, Will Joseph Cook, Owl City
