Sam Setton – Luv U Right

Sam Setton

New York singer Sam Setton shares ‘Luv U Right’, as featured on his ‘Renegade’ EP, which explores the end of his most recent relationship.

Speaking about ‘Luv U Right’, Sam explains, “This song is about the feeling I had when I realized I was in love, but at the same time conflicted, because I’m not sure she realizes it and if she’s ready or not. I’m asking her to let me in, and letting her know I’m the one for her… I wrote this song in hopes it can be an anthem for people who think they aren’t valued enough in the eyes of their lovers.”

Vasser – To The Wolves

Vasser

The glitchy guitar-based electronica of 2015 (think Ben Khan) never quite made it into the mainstream, but Vasser might be about to change that.

Vasser is the bedroom project of an 18 year old Kent local. His latest release, ‘To The Wolves’, is about an unequal relationship that Vasser struggled with for a year, with the spotlight being on his vocals, as opposed to the production.

James Droll – Wall

James Droll

James Droll

Some more indietronica coming out of Nashville, from musician, James Droll.

After playing in bands across the US, James finally settled to write music under a solo project. ‘Wall’ was his debut release in November 2016, and to celebrate how well the track has done, we’ve asked James to put a playlist together for us.

James Droll – ‘Wall’
I don’t know what it is about this track.. but it just gets me.

Bien – ‘Crowd Goes Wild’
Recent find/favorite. I love the energy of it and it’s the perfect song to hype you up for the day ahead.

Sinclair – ‘CLRBLND’
Sinclair is a good friend of mine and total sonic wizard. Rad track, rad person.

Maxwell Young – ‘Spark’
Vibez 4 dayz and I really wanted to include an instrumental track as they’re a big part of my day to day listening.

Rainbow Kitten Surprise – ‘Devil Like Me’
I’m such a huge fan of minimal and RKS does it best. Spooky, minimal, soulful.

Ehiorobo – ‘Heir to the Sugar Honey Queen’
I have no idea what this song is about in the slightest, but it’s dope and I can’t help but jam it.

Carly Rae Jepsen – ‘Your Type’
Favorite song off one of my favorite albums of the last few years. Perfect breakup/pity party song.

Matt Woods – ‘Ain’t No Use’
The literal catchiest song. Smooth vocals and has such a great build to it.

Whitaker – ‘5,000,000,000 Years’
The tones used on this track are like the comfiest blanket. Another case of minimal but impactful, and chill as all get out.

Honne – ‘Warm On A Cold Night’
The effortless quality of his voice is so ridiculous. This is my night driving soundtrack, for sure.

KYOTI – Curved Edge Straight Line

KYOTI

KYOTI

London based art-pop project KYOTI share the beautiful visuals for ‘Curved Edge Straight Line’.

The trio base their image and artwork on the abstractness of an ordinary, mundane world. Specifically inspired by British Modernist sculptors like Barbara Hepworth and the surrealist optical illusions of M.C. Escher, KYOTI balance their aesthetic with the over-arching impact of contemporary pop music, citing artists like Hot Chip and Joanna Newsom amongst their influences.

Original vocals layered over jazz electronica, alongside intelligent lyrics and minimalistic tendencies, ‘Curved Edge Straight Line’ creatively combines rich synth textures with thoughtful storytelling, exploring the theme of dependency on both substances and other people.

Dead Ceremony – Losing You

Dead Ceremony - Losing You

Dead Ceremony – Losing You

Dead Ceremony is a four piece from Tunbridge Wells, Kent. The reason that you may not have heard of the electro foursome yet, is because for the last year they have been taking some time out to write, record and build up a set.

The first release from the nine tracks recorded is ‘Losing You’ which was written by Chris (vocals and piano) and David (production). With assistance from the electronic producer Brassica, ‘Losing You’ gives us a little taster of what to expect from the quartet.

Watch the simple and efficaciously produced video below.

Having recently signed to Three Six Zero and working with Maths Time Joy, expect big things from Dead Ceremony in 2015.

They will be showcasing this last year’s work on 11 December at the Forum in Tunbridge Wells. Purchase tickets here.
