Tigertown – Warriors

Tigertown by Alex Tracey

Meet Australia’s finest new musical export, Tigertown.

Tigertown’s new track ‘Warriors’ manages to reach new euphoric heights. Much like glitter itself, it brightens up and idealises the concept of love, but who cares as everyone loves glitter and love, right?!

The track is out today on Neon Gold and they will be touring with Tove Lo in July and VÉRITÉ in August and September.

SpeakmanSound

SpeakmanSound

SpeakmanSound is the production project of Glastonbury natives and brothers, Todd and Guy.

It’s no surprise that growing up, they were surrounded by music – their father was a well-known guitarist heavily involved with the psychedelic music scene.

Not content with producing, SpeakmanSound have also set up a studio in Cricklewood, where young musicians and talented artists practicing across film and music in North London come to jam and party.

They’ve enlisted their close friend, Sharky, on their debut release, ‘In Flight’; an uplifting track with tropical elements and psychedelic qualities. Listen below.

UK Shows

14th March – The Waiting Room, London (supporting GLASS)
10th May – Electrowerkz, London (Speakman Collective Experience)

‘In Flight’ is out now via their own label, ETLW Records.

ELKKA – Try

ELKKA

ELKKA

Big up upcoming producer/singer/songwriter/DJ, ELKKA and her new video for ‘Try’.

Combining elements of pop, garage, and electronica with what sounds like samples of the Street Fighter game, the video is equally as complex. It has been directed by Adrian Ardelean and is the first in a trilogy where each EP will be accompanied by an intimate video.

‘Try’, co-produced with Pop Morrison, has been taken from ELKKA’s debut EP, ‘Her’, out now.

“This series of EPs are a lyrical documentary about a pivotal moment in my life. The series follows my experiences of meeting the first girl I ever dated. HER. It was completely intoxicating and for a brief moment it felt like it could have been more than just lust but of course, the drama and chaos she brought came later which you will hear all about in second and third part of the series – THEM and US.’’

Christa Vi – Makeshift Happiness

Christa Vi - Makeshift Happiness

Christa Vi – Makeshift Happiness

Australian / German singer songwriter Christa Vi has released the video for the title track from her latest EP, ‘Makeshift Happiness’.

Christa has a casual obsession with origami and paper-craft, mainly because of the concept of creating something beautiful or functional out of something ordinary, and like her hobby, her music is delicately crafted, but this time it is in layers of lush vocals and synths.

The single has been co-produced by Dalston-based multi-instrumentalist Andrew McDonnell (Petite Noir, Suns, Crystal Fighters). Other collaborators for this single include Melbourne- based illustrator and painter Erin Greer, who provided the cover-art, and her video was shot by London-based director Chris Turner / Favourite Colour Black (Editors, Gazelle Twin).

The EP was released on 25 September via Christa’s own record label, Tangelo Records.
