Birch – Same Colors

Birch

Brooklyn-based, electro-pop duo Birch share ‘Same Colors’.

We’ve come to expect hip-hop beats, lush vocal samples, and groovy synths from Birch, and this track does not disappoint.

A call for change and to rethink your current empathic standards, ‘Same Colors’ is a political pop song.

Birch – Nobody Lives Forever

Birch - Nobody Lives Forever

Birch is the Brooklyn-based musical project of Michelle Birsky and Mat Towles.

Their latest single ‘Nobody Lives Forever’ is a pertinent track written about how fear keeps us divided.

Birsky’s light vocals carry lyrics of a heavy nature as she sings about policies used to terrify immigrants, women, the disabled, and the poor, but the message (represented in the building synths throughout the track) is clear – we must unite and spread love.

Playlist: Alex Maxwell

Alex Maxwell

Alex Maxwell

It’s always good to be clean, and no popstars come as fresh as London-based Alex Maxwell.

Want to know what her secret is? Showering to this playlist of course.

Cat Power – 3,6,9
I love her, her attitude, her power….

Lana del Rey – West Coast
…moody…vibey….right up my street

Only Real – Lemonade
I know all the lyrics to this song. Attempting to rap along to it in the shower gets me hyped up and ready for the day.

Moodoid – Je Suis La Montagne
A perfect symphony of psychedelic madness…especially toward the end.

Grimes – Flesh Without Blood
So obsessed with this girl.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Zero
Their songs never disappoint. Definitely one of my go-to’s… And Karen O is just too cool.

Bishop Briggs – River
I just recently discovered her and I’m hooked. Her voice is SO powerful.

Fleetwood Mac – The Chain
My favourite song by my favourite band. Pure genius.

Father John Misty – Strange Encounter
I could listen to this album on repeat and wouldn’t get bored. The music, the lyrics, his voice… pure and strong.

Russian Red – Cigarettes
The melody, her voice and intricate simplicity of this song is like a breath of fresh air.

Cigarettes after Sex – K
I love their sound. Their full EP is really worth a listen, and they do a sick cover of the classic “Keep On Loving You” by REO Speedwagon.

Myself! – No Flight
Out of all my tracks, I think this one fits best with the playlist.

Alex Maxwell – No Flight

Meet 22 year old emerging London noir-pop singer, Alex Maxwell.

Alex was born in London but spent her teenage years writing music in Madrid before moving back to the UK to develop her music in 2014.

Her new release is called ‘No Flight’ and was, ironically, written with producers, The Flight (David Bowie, Björk, Lana Del Rey). The video is a mesmerising collage of charming colours and Eastern beats.

Alex is Hollywood Records’ first UK signing, and is currently in the studio co-writing and producing her debut album with Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter Carey Willetts (Athlete), The Flight and Dan Grech-Marguerat (Radiohead, Tom Odell, Wolf Alice).
