Karim – Dance

Karim

Karim is the solo electro pop project of Italian-born singer, songwriter and producer Karim Afas.

Combining ancient cultures, art and music, Karim’s latest endeavour, called ‘Dance’, explores the complexities of modern love within an alt-pop ballad.

“‘Dance’ is the love, pop song I’ve always wanted to write and then sing at the top of my lungs.
It’s gloomy yet so vivid, it celebrates a triumph filled with melancholy – ‘Dance’, among other
things, is a song about the fickleness of love and life.”

Sounds like: Sampha, Tobias Jesso Jr., David Bowie

Leon Else – Dance

Leon Else

Leon Else

Moving his way into our hearts is British-born musician and trained dancer, Leon Else, and the video for his new release called ‘Dance’.

Much like depression, the beats in the retro-ridden track are erratic and unpredictable, but Leon pushes through to his own drum, exclaiming, “The song is about dancing as a way to make depression go away…It is about how music can be like medicine and finding ways to get through life by yourself. For me, that’s moving and being physical.”

‘Dance’ is out now via Interscope Records.

Sounds like: Bruno Mars, Fyfe, Ben Khan

July Child – When You Call

July Child

July Child

Following on from the huge success of July Child‘s cover of ‘C O O L’ by Le Youth (aka Cassie’s ‘Me & U’) is the North London duo’s new track.

‘When You Call’ is an ambient electronic tune full of throwback vibes and soulful beats, and there are even glimpses of influence from the 80’s legend that is Phil Collins.

Have a listen below and click for a free download.

July Child was formed by Kiyon Samavat (aka Kiks) and Amber Clara; two Londoners who were both born on 29 July 1991.

It’s hard to believe these guys are only 22. They already have their own label (Paper Thin Records Ltd) and have self-written, recorded and produced their debut album. Expect to hear a lot of amazing material from these guys.

The duo will be performing a headline show at the Barfly, Camden on Saturday 26 April 2014. Support will come from Molly Beanland and Empty White Circles. Tickets can be purchased here.

Sounds like: Phil Collins, London Grammar, Shura, Jessie Ware, SOHN, Stevie Nicks, IYES, The XX, Madonna, Late Night Alumni

Fenech-Soler – Magnetic

Fenech-Soler

Fenech-Soler are from Kings Cliffe, although you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking they formed further afield back in 2006. They consist of four members; Ross Duffy, Ben Duffy, Daniel Soler and Andrew Lindsay. The name comes from Daniel Soler’s full surname, which is Maltese.

After a number of teaser singles, ‘Magnetic’ was released on 24th May 2013 on Warner Music and is taken from their second album ‘Rituals’, which is out 2nd September 2013 and available for preorder here. ‘Magnetic’ immediately draws you into a dancing sunset scene full of euphoric, feelings. It is the ultimate indietronica festival anthem, and this is even more present in their video which features a reappearing man in a rabbit mask. Always the sign of a good night!
