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 (MegMyers, OfeliaK)) is called ‘Burn It Down’. It does just that with angst-heavy demands smothered in sentiment.
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.
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.
The Agostina Gálvez-directed video for ‘Keep Running’ by the Brooklyn based songstress oozes sex appeal and instantly takes us back to that Flake advert from the 80’s, but this time it’s a mic and not a chocolate bar.
Tei Shi’s debut album, ‘Crawl Space’, is out 31 March on Downtown/Interscope Records.
Hurrah! Dominique is back with a synth-laden track called ‘If I Could Go Back’.
Based in NYC, this bedroom producer is completely self-taught on Abberton, and has a knack of creating pop gems.
Of the track, Dominique explains,
“The hook for this track came to me when I was reminiscing about parts of my college years. I moved to NYC from Florida when I was 18 and that was a big change for me–I often felt totally out of place and unconfident. Now that I’m older and more adjusted, I can’t believe I let my fear of saying something stupid keep me from speaking out all the time. It’s funny how as we get older, the stuff that used to scare the hell out of us begins to seem so insignificant. This song is all about wishing you could go back, relive, and make the most out of those times you felt most insecure, but with the inclusion of your newfound confidence.”
Expect an EP in early December.
Sounds like: Goldroom, Monogem, VÉRITÉ, CAPPA, Broods, Mr Little Jeans, Kate Boy, Lorde, Lykke Li
