I AM KARATE – Elevate

I AM KARATE

I AM KARATE

I AM KARATE is an unsigned Swedish electro pop dup comprised of Marta and Erika.

They originally met when singing in their local library, and soon realised they both shared a bond and desire for producing music.

Their latest track, ‘Elevate’, is audacious and efflorescent, and despite being wholly independent, I AM KARATE has managed to create a successfully commercial sound.

Doe Paoro – Nostalgia

Doe Paoro is a female artist from Los Angeles, who has worked with the likes of Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.

Her new beat-heavy track, ‘Nostalgia, was co-written with Peter Morén of Peter Bjorn & John.

In her own words, Paoro says;

“I’m interested in the reconstruction of memory — it’s so human to selectively remember either only the good or bad parts of a situation. Personally, replaying those narratives is a way to avoid receiving what’s happening right now, and moving on from the past. So I’m working on staying present, because that’s the safest place for me to be, and I wrote the lyrics to “Nostalgia” as a reminder to myself. I brought them to Peter Morén (Peter, Bjorn & John) in 2013 during a 5-day songwriting bender together in Stockholm and we wrote the song.”

‘Nostalgia’ has been taken from the highly anticipated album ‘After’, released on 25 September.
