Sunan

Introducing Sunan, the vibrant new project from Pete Robertson.

Despite taking himself away from the music scene after departing The Vaccines, Sunan has had a “controlled explosion” of ideas from “minimalist string quartets to maximalist 80s-style prog pop.”

One of these results is ‘Faster’,  which covers a kaleidoscope of unshackled themes and variations.

Josh Jacobson – Sideline Feat. Gigamesh

Josh Jacobson

Josh Jacobson is effortlessly combining modern R&B with dance-pop in his new single ‘Sideline’ featuring co-production from Gigamesh.

On the subject of the song, he explains,

“Sideline is a song about growth and building in new directions, learning to let go when it’s necessary to move forward. It’s about those inner voices at times of transition that are at once exciting but so challenging emotionally. I think these lyrics will resonate with a lot of people in different ways, so I’m excited to hear how people relate to the song.”

Sounds like: Le Youth, Drake, Justin Timberlake, The Weeknd

Elley Duhé - Can You Touch

Think of every single female pop star who has positively impacted your life. Now take a listen to Elley Duhé.

An Alabama-native, growing up Elley always felt like different to other kids her age and used music as a form of creative escapism after receiving a guitar from her father.

It wasn’t long after, that Elley found herself writing for artists like Usher and working with Grammy-Award winning producer Illangelo (The Weeknd).

‘Can You Touch’ is an empowering number, written by Elley and produced by Rahki (Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Mac Miller).

The track is out now on A Creative Music Group / Columbia Records.

CHLØË BLACK – Groupie

CHLØË BLACK

CHLØË BLACK

Ever the rebel, Chløë Black returns with her new track called ‘Groupie’.

It’s part homage to the original groupies of the 1970’s like Pamela Des Barres and Cynthia Plaster Caster and an anti slut-shaming, feminist anthem.

Chløë was inspired by her own experiences of the sunset strip rock scene, Frank Zappa’s Laurel Canyon, Terry Reid’s 1970 documentary about Groupies and Kenneth Anger’s ‘Scorpio Rising’;

“In some cases these groupies have become even more legendary than a lot of the men they worshipped and have become poster girls for rebellion and sexual liberation.”

Sounds like: Charli XCX, M.I.A, Lana Del Rey, Banks, Sky Ferreira, Lorde
