Dominique – Use Me

Dominique

Hype Machine beauty and bedroom producer Dominique shares ‘Use Me’.

The track has an empowering feel to it, but do not be deceived, as it’s actually one of the saddest, more intro-reflective songs Dominique has written to date, about “being so hopelessly in love with someone that you’d do anything and everything just to be around them.”

Sounds like: VÉRITÉ, CAPPA, Broods, Mr Little Jeans, Kate Boy, Lorde, Lykke Li, Sigrid

Upsahl – Can You Hear Me Now

Upsahl

Phoenix-native Upsahl shares progressive pop number, ‘Can You Hear Me Now’.

The track is hella catchy, thanks to Upsahl’s lush harmonies and the addition of continual wooden percussions.

It’s hard to believe this teenager already has three albums under her belt, but it’s practice well spent as she clearly knows what direction she needs to be heading in,

“I like to maintain powerful and complex lyrics that are relatable to a variety of situations. I like to write about relationships, politics, cultural issues. This song is a message to someone on the other end of a failed relationship. It’s the kind of relationship that has been dysfunctional for some time. I’ve watched so many women in my life stay in a relationship that they aren’t happy in, they settle.”

Sounds like: Dagny, Dominique, Feist, Regina Spektor

Siobhan Sainte – Burn It Down

Siobhan Sainte

Killer eyebrows and killer sounds from New Zealand-based electro-pop newcomer, Siobhan Sainte.

Siobhan takes her musical influence from a love of film noir, haute couture and pop culture, which all in all creates a dramatic performance. Her debut release (produced by Andy Rosen (Meg Myers, Ofelia K)) is called ‘Burn It Down’. It does just that with angst-heavy demands smothered in sentiment.

Violet Days – Suck At Love

Violet Days is the project of Swedish singer/songwriter, Lina Hansson.

Asking whether you ‘Suck At Love’ is always going to be tricky to answer, but it’s also highly relatable to the majority of listeners. Luckily for us, Kris Eriksson (The Chainsmokers) is on production duties, helping Violet Days create an anthemic electronic song that almost makes us forget the initial question.

Violet Days will be playing the Ja Ja Ja club night at The Lexington in London on 23 February.

Jake Alder – Chasin’ Time Feat LKA

Well this is a great collaboration, isn’t it? The UK meets Finland as Jake Alder invites LKA to join him in ‘Chasin’ Time’.

The track is a sultry number with epic synth surges and fulfilling drum beats, all of which create an emotional experience. LKA’s intentions when writing the lyrics for ‘Chasin’ Time’ were to help her advance forward in all endeavours, and this song proves that both parties are doing just that.

The track is being offered as a free download from Jake’s SoundCloud page.

Jake Alder – Horizon (Feat. ELIZA)

Jake Alder

Jake Alder

Classically trained London producer Jake Alder has been on our radar for some time now, following the release of his two incredible tracks with Charlotte Turnball earlier in the year.

So we are pretty happy to hear that Jake has a new single out tomorrow, having teamed up with an equally talented singer called ELIZA.

‘Horizon’ is a song for reflection, to uplift and calm at the same time. What better way to finish of a pretty crappy 2016.

Sounds like: Kygo, The Chainsmokers, Dominique
