Continuing to pave the way for UK producers, Joe Goddard of Hot Chip/The 2 Bears shares ‘Music Is The Answer’, featuring the vocal talents of Jess Mills.

The video for the song is directed by Shynola creative collective. Director Richard Kenworthy says,

“The message of this track really resonated with us coming off the back of what for most people was a dispiriting year. We’d recently been reading about the AWOL Hitomi satellite, and also the incredible Pinchas Gutter hologram and that lead to imagine a story about a satellite lost in the vastness of space, broadcasting a recorded message of hope.”

‘Music Is The Answer’ is taken from ‘Electric Lines’, Joe’s debut solo album out 21 April via Greco-Roman/Domino Records. Pre order on iTunes here.

Sounds like: Roosevelt, Hot Chip, The xx, Four Tet, Caribou, Jamie XX

Petite Noir – Chess

Petite Noir

Petite Noir

Petite Noir is South African Yannick Ilunga. You may recognise his name; he was the front man of electronic band, Popskarr and advocate of Capital of Cool.

The new track ‘Chess’ is produced by Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode). The lyrics were constructed following an instant message conversation that Noir had on the day of recording. The new lyrics, rewritten about the demise of a relationship, instantly replaced the original lyrics Noir was preparing to record that very day.

The accompanying video was directed by Cieron Magat and was inspired by the works of Ghanaian photographer, Philip Kwame Apagya. Watch the video below:

The track has been taken from the forthcoming ‘King of Anxiety EP’, which is released 19 January 2015 via Domino’s sister label, Double Six.

Pre order on iTunes now to download ‘Chess’.

Sounds like: Kele, Bloc Party, Foals, Popskarr
