“Hey everybody. I’m the WEIRDO” declared Josh Christopher (formerly of Brighton duo, IYES) earlier today on his Facebook page.
We’ll let you into a little secret, we kind of already knew that WEIRDO was the project of the now Berlin-based producer, but it’s still exciting that he’s finally announced it to the world.
So now that the news is out, will we learn everything possible about the WEIRDO project through the realms of social media? Not quite.
Josh still appears to be maintaining some mystery, having slightly concealed his face on the dark blue track cover of new track ‘Sapphire’ (which also features some awesome drumming skills of Debbie Knox-Hewson (also Charli XCX‘s drummer)), and throughout the song, there is also an uncertainty as to whether the sapphire really is as beautiful as first thought.
American musician, ZellaDay, returns with a part indietronica, part psychedelic track called ‘Man On The Room’.
A gentle nod to the era of the moon landing, the track will see a release as part of a AA-side 7″ single pressed on limited edition white sparkle vinyl on 18th November via B3SCI Records. Pre-order here.
Sounds like: Alex Maxwell, Lana Del Rey, Susanne Sundfør, Parade of Lights, Tove Lo, Lorde, Charli XCX, Sky Ferreira, Mariette
NEDA (aka Tenielle Neda) is an Australian songstress with a huge background in music.
Having worked with Mark Myers (The Middle East, EmmaLouise), WayneConnelly (BoyandBear, CloudControl) and most recently Neal Sutherland (Bertie Blackman), NEDA is now independent and sharing her new material, which includes ‘Prehistoric Love’; a track written with Perth duo, The Opposite Kids.
What struck us the most with this song is her original vocals, playing carefully with minimalistic beats.
Her second EP is set to drop later this year.
Sounds like: Feist, Emma Louise, Charli XCX, Alice Jemima, Zella Day
Hot on the sexy heels of Dua Lipa is uk R&B artist, Harper.
‘SKIN’ is another sultry number with a pulsing electro beat and addictive hook.
Harper describes the track as ‘an earthy, raw, alt-pop record with a much deeper concept than you may perceive from first impressions. I wanted to write about the properties of ‘skin’; how it’s our protective barrier from the world, it’s power to heal when cut, and apply that sentiment to my love for a person.’
Her EP will be out via ICU Label.
Sounds like: Dua Lipa, Rihanna, Banks, Sizzy Rocket, Charli XCX
