KING – Blood

KING

KING

Denmark has a new pop star in the making, and she’s called KING.

Born in Copenhagen to a Cuban mother and a Chilean father, KING has had a bit of an unbringing, watching her uncle work as one of Fidel Castro’s personal bodyguards.

With her street smart dance style and accomplished vocals, we kindly ask Banks and Grimes to step aside for the KING.

Sounds like: CAPPA, Grimes, Banks, MØ

Dominique – If I Could Go Back

Dominique

Dominique

Hurrah! Dominique is back with a synth-laden track called ‘If I Could Go Back’.

Based in NYC, this bedroom producer is completely self-taught on Abberton, and has a knack of creating pop gems.

Of the track, Dominique explains,

“The hook for this track came to me when I was reminiscing about parts of my college years. I moved to NYC from Florida when I was 18 and that was a big change for me–I often felt totally out of place and unconfident. Now that I’m older and more adjusted, I can’t believe I let my fear of saying something stupid keep me from speaking out all the time. It’s funny how as we get older, the stuff that used to scare the hell out of us begins to seem so insignificant. This song is all about wishing you could go back, relive, and make the most out of those times you felt most insecure, but with the inclusion of your newfound confidence.”

Expect an EP in early December.

Sounds like: Goldroom, Monogem, VÉRITÉ, CAPPA, Broods, Mr Little Jeans, Kate Boy, Lorde, Lykke Li

Playlist: MIYNT

MIYNT

MIYNT

MIYNT is a Stockholm-based artist and musician. Having listened to a couple of her previous tracks, we decided to get the girl to put together a playlist for us.

You can check it out below.

Leon Bridges – Coming Home 
I was blown away by this song, it has a timeless feel to it.

Touchy Mob – Crooked Lust 
I love the lo-fi feel and the melancholia in this song. It’s brilliant.

Alabama Shakes – I Found You
Brittany Howard must be one of the greatest singers alive. I love this song.

Mild High Club – Windowpane 
Man, I almost wanna steel that synth in the beginning, or in the whole song. It’s an amazing song.

Gorillaz – On Melancholy Hill 
I think that all of my favorite songs includes the chord bm. This one included. It just catches some sort of melancholia. Damon Albarn 4-ever.

Fever Ray – I’m Not Done
I think that this is one of the best electronic songs of this decade.

Buscabulla – Sono
This makes me wanna dance

Valerie June – Wanna Be On Your Mind
This song falls in the same category as the Leon Bridges-track. It just feels timeless. So chill and beautiful.

PJ Harvey – Let England Shake
Because I’m secretly in love with PJ Harvey.

Angel Olsen – Shut Up And Kiss Me.
I just discovered Angel Olsen and I think she is awesome.

You can listen to MIYNT’s new single, ‘You Were Never Too Much’, below.

Sounds like: CAPPA, Banks, Lana Del Rey, Tame Impala, Alt-J, Kate Boy, IYES, Zola Blood, I AM KARATE, Tula

CAPPA – I’m Good

CAPPA

CAPPA

Making her own way in the music business, CAPPA returns with her latest pop number, ‘I’m Good’.

CAPPA says the track is an “expression most of us use a lot without ever really thinking about it. For me, this song is about declaring that you can be so much happier alone than hanging on some random person’s arm. It feels anthemic and empowering to me and I hope it feels the same to listeners!”

Sounds like: Lorde, Lana Del Rey, HOLYCHILD, Purity Ring, Washed Out, Say Lou Lou, The Knife, M83, KLOE, Druzy, Taylor Swift, The Knife

SUMif – Malaga

Meet SUMif, a San Francisco-based electro pop producer and singer.

After studying music business at NYU, SUMif moved to Nashville to write country music. However, it turns out that music that producing electronic music was more her forte.

One of the results is ‘Malaga’.

Of the track, SUMif explains;

“Malaga” is about my favorite thing in the world – dancing my face off at music festivals with my favorite friends. I wrote this song about those magical moments, an ode to everyone who I’ve ever danced with, in the desert, in a French-Canadian rainstorm, in the fields of Golden Gate Park, on the Isle of Wight, or while watching a rainbow meet the sunset over The Gorge. Those are among my favorite memories, so I tried to capture those feelings in a song.”
