Year Of The Brother

Finally, we have the brilliant new indie-pop trio from Portland called Year of the Brother.

WhoMadeWho – Dynasty

WhoMadeWho

We love electronica being at the forefront of music, but we also love an amalgamation of genres. Cue WhoMadeWho, a Copenhagen-based trio comprised of Tomas Barfod, Jeppe Kjellberg and Tomas Høffding.

WhoMadeWho like to experiment sounds inbetween disco, funk, techno, indie rock and pop. They also like to tackle hot topics whilst they’re at it…including sex. It’s complicated, ever more so with dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, so why not listen to ‘Dynasty’, and turn that energy you spend on your phone into something good, like connecting with someone in real life? Good advice guys!

MATTIS

Copenhagen-based superstar in the making, MATTIS, shares his stunning debut, ‘Loverboy’.

This self confessed “viking soul” uses somewhat minimalistic production, relying heavily on his vocals (think James Blake or Sampha), but ‘Loverboy’ also tells an emotive story, driven from a dark place that MATTIS found himself in three years ago, having lost his apartment following a break up, and generally feeling like a lone wolf away from the pack.
