Aaron Taos – Control

Aaron Taos by Dave Krugman

Aaron Taos shares ‘Control’, the first single taken from his new project called ‘Birthday Boy’.

The track itself is about the monotony of daily life, think Truman Show. This malaise is reflected in the slurred vocal effect and distant synths.

Fyfe – Stronger

Fyfe

Fyfe

Fyfe (aka Paul Dixon) returns with new track ‘Stronger’, the title track from his first EP of new material since last year’s acclaimed debut album, ‘Control’.

Pleasant and very matter of fact, don’t be deceived by ‘Stronger’, because it is no-less-intricate than his previous material.

Lyrically, ‘Stronger’ is based on the idea of sticking to your guns but also being (says Fyfe) “your own worst enemy. ‘Stronger’ is about engaging in that struggle to pick yourself up and keep going regardless of what is, or you may feel, is going on around you.”

Sounds like: Miike Snow, Boxed In, James Blake, Childish Gambino, SOHN, The XX, Ellie Goulding, Bombay Bicycle Club, Death Cab For Cutie, London Grammar, Foals

Fyfe (aka Paul Dixon) has just uploaded his new video for ‘Solace’.

You may recognise the track as it was originally self-released by Dixon, but it’s great to see it back with a bit of oomph in the form of a visually stunning video.

‘Solace’ is the lead single running into the release of his much-anticipated album debut ‘Control’ which is out in March.

Sounds like: London Grammar, Miike Snow, James Blake, Childish Gambino, SOHN, The XX

Fyfe – Holding On

Fyfe

Fyfe

We previously described the 25-year old UK solo artist, Fyfe (aka Paul Dixon), as being comparable to Miike Snow with a hint of James Blake, which is why we are pleased to hear that he has released a moody video for new tune ‘Holding On’ as well as announcing the release of his long-awaited debut album, ‘Control’.

Still slightly following the recognisable disconsolate theme, ‘Holding On’ is more about a journey of self-discovery for the producer than any of his former tracks.
