Taking more of a contrasting RÜFÜS kind of vibe, singer/songwriter/producer The Kite String Tangle shares ‘The Prize’ featuring Rudimental’s vocalist, Bridgette Amofah.

Full of belated energy, this track explores the intense relationship between two falling lovers, but the question of what if? appears too late.

Expect the release of his debut self-titled album for 14 July on his own newly founded label, Exist Recordings.

The Kite String Tangle – Illuminate

TKSTX

TKSTX

We wrote about The Kite String Tangle back in 2014 when he released the video for ‘Given The Chance‘.

Now it’s 2015, and TKST returns with ‘Illuminate’, in a collaboration alongside fellow Australian artist Dustin Tebbutt.

Imagine two angelic voices merging in complete harmony in a way that will create endless goosebumps over your body.

The video is just as gripping thanks to the emotional performance by Jasper Bagg; a man who is trying to escape an existing life.

Sounds like: M83, TDeL2, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, The Weeknd, Active Child, Mount Kimbie, Fever Ray, James Blake, Cloud Boat

Years & Years – King

Years & Years

Years & Years

We have a huge music crush on these three kings.

Years & Years is back with the video for ‘King’. It’s another song from the trio about the pain of love, but their first video with impressive dance moves (it was choreographed by Ryan Heffington, who also choreographed SIA‘s ‘Chandelier’)

It’s hard to work out how they do it, but with just one listen of ‘King’, we are already belting it out of the car window, the office, the gym, anywhere really…

Sounds like: Clean Bandit, Cloud Boat, Yes Cadets, Citizens!, How to Dress Well, Lxury, Bondax, SOHN, Flume, Phoenix, All We Are, Ellie Goulding, Jungle, Sam Smith

Years & Years – Desire

Years & Years - Desire

Years & Years – Desire

It may be getting colder outside, but the temperature has risen in the Indietronica office since the first play of new track ‘Desire’ by Years & Years.

The 90’s house-inspired track retains the distinctive claps we frequently hear from Years & Years, whilst taking on more of a modern, Clean Bandit vibe.

The boys have recently finished supporting SOHN and  and are due to support Clean Bandit and Sam Smith on their UK and European tours.

After the success of The Magician‘s ‘Sunlight’ which featured Olly on vocals, we believe that ‘Desire’ is the tune that will make Years & Years. It is out on 23 November.

Sounds like: Clean Bandit, Cloud Boat, Yes Cadets, Citizens!, How to Dress Well, Lxury, Bondax, SOHN, Flume, Phoenix, All We Are, Ellie Goulding, Jungle, Sam Smith

The Kite String Tangle – Given The Chance

TKST

TKST

Introducing The Kite String Tangle (TKST); the experimental solo project of alternative electronic artist and producer, Danny Harley (also the lead singer of electronic act Pigeon).

The TKST project was launched in May 2012 and has started making waves across the pond in Europe and the US.

‘Given The Chance’ starts off slightly melancholy as Harley attempts to persuade a girl to go out with him. The video follows the same theme, showing a brightly lit up girl in a dark world, as seen through Harley’s eyes.

Despite the ambient start, the beat of ‘Given the Chance’ soon picks up (in true Pigeon form) and also appears to feature a sample of ‘Ride on Time’ by Black Box, which is just awesome!

Years & Years – Traps

Years & Years

Years & Years

London based rising stars Years & Years present the video for their latest track, ‘Traps’.

‘Traps’ commences with an elongated synth as dramatically sounding as something taken from Mogwai’s soundtrack for ‘The Returned’, but the beat soon loosens up as frontman and actor Olly Alexander tenderly recites ‘will you lay a trap for me?’.

The video initially lures us into a bit of a depressing setting, but soon drives the watcher into a world of synth pop and illuminous triangles. This is a true electronic love song.

The band’s second EP, also entitled ‘Traps’, was written during the band’s recent retreat to a remote cabin on a secluded Sussex seafront, and follows on from the debut EP ‘I Wish I Knew’ which was suitably released a year ago.

‘Traps’ is out 9 September on Kitsuné.

Sounds like: Cloud Boat, Yes Cadets, Citizens!
