LPX – Tightrope

LPX

LPX

LPX is the new solo project of Lizzy Plapinger (frontwoman of MS MR and co-founder of Neon Gold Records).

Lizzy has just released her debut track, ‘Tightrope’. It may feel like a daunting prospect for most, but for Lizzy, she means business,

“I’m here to assert myself – harder, louder, and stronger – as a woman and an artist. A force to be reckoned with, wrapped in amplified distortion, emotion and chaos. To create music that RIPS through your speakers and shakes you to your core, the kind of music that gets into your blood, takes hold and doesn’t let go.”

Fighting talk, and we like it.

Sounds like: MS MR, Christine and The Queens, Austra, Karen O, Florence + The Machine, Metric

Sweet sweet Nordic vocals lead ‘This Time/Remember’ by Philco Fiction‘s Turid Alida Solber (aka Else Born).

Klyne – Water Flow

Klyne by Synchrodogs

Klyne by Synchrodogs

Klyne are a duo comprised of 22 year old producer Ferdous Dehzad and singer Nick Klein, who have already supported Years & Years and Christine and The Queens.

New track, ‘Water Flow’, was created in the Dehzad’s childhood bedroom. Both specifically love the muffled sounds of the piano chords. Unintentionally created? Perhaps, but we like the hazy outcome. It works well with the soulful vocals and electronic backdrop.

‘Water Flow’ is out now via Big Beat Records/Because Music.

Sounds like: Honne, Ben Khan, James Blake, Boxed In, Hot Chip, Rhodes

Playlist: Dragonette

Dragonette

Dragonette

It’s not always about the girls, but sometimes it is.

The lovely Dragonette have put together a playlist for us called “Indietronica – an indie pop girls only mix”.

Listen below!

Santigold – Can’t Get Enough Of Myself (feat. B.C)
I was told that this song was inspired by an Iranian disco song from the 80’s. I’ve been listening to a lot of world music and I love how well they mashed this up. So unique.

Lucius – Born Again Teen
I feel deeply in love with Lucius’ first record. There are so many awesome songs on this new one of theirs Good Grief. But I’m choosing “Born Again Teen” on our playlist because i think its such an strange arrangement. Where’s the chorus!? I don’t know! Who cares?

Dua Lipa – Be The One
Every time I go back to London to work with other musicians I learn about artists who are up-and-coming over there. Last time I was there it was Dua Lipa. Maybe everybody already knows her but I just discovered her and I love the vibe of this tune.

Niki & The Dove – Coconut Kisses
Niki & The Dove’s The Drummer is one of my favourite indie pop albums of all times. I’ve been waiting a long time for their follow up. It almost reminds me of Empire Of The Sun. But with Stevie Nicks‘ voice.

Christine And The Queens – iT
My friend showed me this song the other day, I don’t know anything else of theirs. It’s the beginning of a new love I suspect.

Petite Meller – Barbaric
I think she’s a style genius. We played a show with her in Florence and I drank her up like pink lemonade.

Sounds like: Niki & The Dove, Charli XCX, Gwen Stefani, Icona Pop, OH Land, Little Boots, Girl Friend

Exclusive: King Deco Playlist

King Deco

King Deco

King Deco is a newcomer who writes bubbly indie pop music with heartfelt lyrics.

“A lot of my music has to do with the idea of breaking free and growing the courage to go against the grain when you need to,” Deco says. “It also explores what it’s like to be a woman in number of different situations. I rarely write straight up love songs but when I do I like to approach it in a very fun, comedic, tongue-in-cheek kind of way.”

With that in mind, King Deco created a playlist for us!

Lostboy Crow – Love Won’t Sleep
I love it when a song starts and you think it’s going to be one thing but it seamlessly opens up into something totally different.

Tame Impala – Yes I’m Changing
Feels like candles are lit and incense is burning

Kill J – Trickle Trickle
My go to song when I’m getting ready to go out

Miike Snow – Genghis Khan
Obsessed with these lyrics

Great Good Fine Ok – Already Love
Perfect song to start your day

Jeremih – Planez
The opening reminds me of Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” and in the first 3 seconds of the song I never know which one is gonna start playing.

The Knocks – Kiss The Sky
Makes you feel good. Every. single. time.

Imad Royal – Down For Whatever
It’s one of those songs you can play anywhere. Car, club, bedroom, studio.

The Weeknd – As You Are
The little details in the production, like that fluttery synth floating in between the lines of the second verse.

Christine and The Queens – Saint Claude 
Always yes to french vocals.

Sounds like: MØ, Grimes, Sizzy Rocket
