Ronika – Shell Shocked

Ronika

Ronika

Ronika has been a firm favourite of Indietronica’s for some time now.

We praised ‘Search Siren’, and now we are super excited about her new track, ‘Shell Shocked’; a dancey floor filler full of fab 80’s and summery vibes.

Whilst lining up some exciting new collaborations for 2014, Ronika has already worked with the likes of Mylo and Herve, and recruited an eclectic cast of co-producers for a handful of songs on her debut album, ‘Selectadisc’ including Mixmag’s best new DJ of the year, Citizen, Brooklyn duo Javelin, and local hip-hop pioneer Joe Buddha. Oh and we forgot to mention that Nile Rogers is fan.

Her debut album, ‘Selectadisc’ is out on 2 June 2014 and is available for pre-order now via RecordShop. The title of the album is an ode to ‘Selectadisc’, Nottingham’s iconic independent record-store, which closed its doors for the final time in 2009.

She really is the nicest girl in pop!

Color War – SOS

Color War

Color War

COLOR WAR is a Brooklyn-based electronic duo formed of Justin ‘Billy J’ Lin and vocalist Lindsay Mound.

The couple originally started creating music in 2009 and soon began forging songs through hazy improvisational sessions, with J piecing together beats and synth textures reflected with Mound’s lyrical responses.

Last summer, COLOUR WAR shared their first single ‘Obelisk’ with us and now ‘SOS’. Mound’s super cool vocals in ‘SOS’ moody their way through the deep and glimmering soundscapes produced by Lin.

COLOR WAR and their live visuals collaborator, Brandon Sciarrotta, produced the record with co-production and mixing by legendary techno wizard, John Selway.

Their forthcoming album ‘It Could Only Be This Way’ (to be released 4 March 2014 on Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse) illustrates the depth and transcendence of their sound.
