Francis Novotny – The Wire
Sonic production leads the way for Francis Novotny‘s new single ‘The Wire’.
It’s a brooding, electro-soul song by the Swedish multi-instrumentalist that is extremely reminiscent of Jack Garratt or Asgeir, and captures that addictive quality of a nonetheless-toxic relationship, and the feeling (says Francis) “when a person leaves you hanging on without answers – and you know you should get out of it – but you keep winding back towards them.”
It’s out now on Black Butter Records.
Sounds like: Jack Garratt, Asgeir
Dead Sea – Know Where
Dead Sea is a four-piece French band who craft dreamy and magnetic post-pop songs.
Their new release, ‘Know Where’, does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s hypnotic and joyfully melancholic.
They’ve just been on tour with Slowdive and they will support Editors next April.
Sounds like: Beach House, Slowdive
Two Legs – Don’t Tell
One thing we are certain about is our dislike towards uncertainty, and it seems UK artist Two Legs feels the same.
His wistful dance single ‘Don’t Tell’ is the first of three releases this year, and has a “give a fuck” mentality that we love.
Sounds like: SAMA, Moderat, Tycho, Joe Goddard
KUZO – Monsoon
Los Angeles-based duo KUZO are back with their new single, ‘Monsoon’.
Blissful and cool as ever, KUZO once again deliver a combination of emotionally driven blends of sound and sultry tones.
Sounds like: VÉRITÉ, Noosa, EZA, Paperwhite
7Chariot – Danger In Me
We are super excited about the new signing to 0E0E (pronounced: naughty naughty) called 7Chariot (aka Nashville based 20 year old Claire Wilkinson).
‘Danger In Me’ is understated, yet ambitious pop at its best, and the lyrics are something we can all relate to.
Sounds like: Mallrat, Grimes, Lorde, Sylvan Esso, MØ
The Rare Occasions – Mercy Mercy
It’s not often we see decent indie rock coming out of the US, and we wouldn’t blame you for thinking this foursome going by the name of The Rare Occasions is British.
Their new single ‘Mercy Mercy’ is pure garage rock – rough around the edges, but fully refreshing to see due to the saturated market of pristine pop tunes.
Sounds like: YONAKA, Arctic Monkeys
Suzi Island – Show Me The Way
Young Brighton duo Suzi Island debuts ‘Show Me The Way’, a breezy and catchy indie pop number.
These two have already managed to get some decent names onboard, including Pete from The Vaccines, who produced the song. They are definitely on our watch list for 2018.
Sounds like: Nothing But Thieves, Sundara Karma
Glassio – Back For More
NYC-based duo Glassio share ‘Back For More’, a song for anytime of the day!
Built on an orchestral-electronic backbone that nods to the likes of Massive Attack and Air, the pining, heartsick anthem is a penned love letter to a paramour after a strained relationship has come to a close.
Sounds like: Hot Chip, Metronomy, Foals, Jagwar Ma, Rüfüs, Flume, Odesza, Bob Moses, Glass Animals, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
