Lastlings – Urges

Lastlings - Urges

Australian brother-sister duo, Lastlings, share new track, ‘Urges’.

It follows on from ‘Time’, You’ and ‘Chills‘, all of which showcase their knack of creating melancholic electronic pop, with airy vocals and lustering melodies.

The track is out now on Exist. Recordings (the label recently launched by Danny Harley of The Kite String Tangle) and is taken from their forthcoming ‘Verses’ EP.

SpeakmanSound – In Flight (Feat. Sharky)

SpeakmanSound

SpeakmanSound

SpeakmanSound is the production project of Glastonbury natives and brothers, Todd and Guy.

It’s no surprise that growing up, they were surrounded by music – their father was a well-known guitarist heavily involved with the psychedelic music scene.

Not content with producing, SpeakmanSound have also set up a studio in Cricklewood, where young musicians and talented artists practicing across film and music in North London come to jam and party.

They’ve enlisted their close friend, Sharky, on their debut release, ‘In Flight’; an uplifting track with tropical elements and psychedelic qualities. Listen below.

UK Shows

Lastlings – Chills

Lastlings

Lastlings

Lastlings are an Australian brother-sister duo who create icy electronica.

Glacial electronica from the Gold Coast. It’s not something that you often hear, but we love their new track ‘Chills’. It cleverly showcases Amy’s echoing and angelic vocals, whilst Joshua masters the backdrop of swelling synths.

They are definitely ones to keep an eye on.

‘Chills’ is the third single from the Lastling’s upcoming debut EP ‘Unreality’, to be released early 2016.

Head to their Soundcloud page for a limited free download of the track.

Acre Tarn – Flex

Acre Tarn

Acre Tarn

Acre Tarn is the electronic music project from Anna-Louisa Etherington, a singer/producer originally from the Lake District.

Acre Tarn has a passion for disjointed industrial beats cut into powerful, yet ghostly landscapes and the new track ‘Flex’ is no exception. Combine this with Anna-Louisa’s autumnal and echoey vocals, and you are onto a winner.

It is the first track taken from the forthcoming second EP.

CHVRCHES – Leave A Trace

CHVRCHES - Leave A Trace

CHVRCHES – Leave A Trace

The Scottish synth masters are back!

CHVRCHES return after a nine month break with a new gem, ‘Leave A Trace’.

Staying true to what made them such a successful trio in the first place, ‘Leave A Trace’ has strong repetitive vocals (courtesy of Lauren Mayberry, who really has a knack of getting her point across), crammed in over unique luscious sounds.

It’s fair to say that CHVRCHES will be leaving some serious musical traces, once again.

And check out the luscious Goldroom remix (added 17 Dec).

Acre Tarn – Dawn Faces

Acre Tarn - Dawn Faces

Acre Tarn – Dawn Faces

Acre Tarn is the electronic music project from Anna-Louisa Etherington, a singer/producer originally from the Lake District.

The debut ‘Clasp and Shake EP’ came with a number of video collaborations from Manchester-based video-jam projects that projected colourful and haunting visuals upon the music. Staying true to her roots, Anna’s new track Dawn Faces’ features a children’s choir and a number of samples recorded in a cave not far from the lake from which Acre Tarn takes its name.

As the name suggests, ‘Dawn Faces’ is a multifaceted and haunting affair with astounding impact. The listener is lead on a mountainous journey full of ethereal synths, beats that drive with industrial clatter, and a syrupy bass line into the spaces around a huge attention-grabbing chorus.
