Some artists seem to wear their heart on their sleeves, and this in turn creates heartfelt and highly emotional music.
One such artist is UK-based Cape Cub (aka Chad Male), who uses his personal experiences and local landscape to make his music.
His cinematic new release, ‘Closer’, is the first song to be taken from his upcoming debut EP of the same name and is about the “fragility and the painful side of love, when you give your all and there seems to be nothing on the other side.”

Klyne is the musical partnership of Ferdous Dehzad and singer Nick Klein. They like to write infectious electronic pop.
New track ‘Closer’ has a sweet and soulful base, but you soon release this isn’t just any R&B track. As you delve in deeper and reach the chorus layers, you are impacted by Ferrous’s Hot Chip-esque, staccato synth lines.
Of the track, Klyne says;
“Closer is about someone going to the extreme in order to reach their lifelong desire, and at the same time coping with the fear that their fate might already be decided. One of life’s greater beauties is when a person breaks free of these psychological limitations. At first it looks like naive stubbornness, and the feelings of doubt never entirely go away. But then all of a sudden you’re halfway there, and that’s when you realize it is possible to actually achieve things that are beyond your “fate”. That’s the simple story we wanted to convey with this song – that and a ridiculous topline.”
It is out now via Aesop (SOHN, TALA, Sylas).
Sounds like: Ben Khan, James Blake, Boxed In, Hot Chip

Duck House is the musical project of Cardiff-based Stefan Vincent.
Citing influences from 80’s bands such as Talking Heads, Duck House creates nostalgic disco beats from his…wait for it… car! It’s hard to believe an environment would produce such blissful electronica, but the escapist approach is definitely creating some ever-changing inspiration for Stefan.
‘Closer’ is the lead single from his new EP which will be released through MenoRecords later this year.
