East Of My Youth – Go Home

East Of My Youth

East Of My Youth is experimental pop duo, Herdis and Thelma from Reykjavik.

Their new single ‘Go Home’ is an inspirational ballad that draws influences from classical and modern genres.

Talking about the track, Herdís explains,

“I was sitting in the studio and playing around on my MicroKorg synth, listening to A$AP Rocky. The song came really easily. We were in such a good mood the we went downtown and Thelma bought herself new shoes and then we went back to the studio and had some wine and danced.”

It’s out now via West Of My Future Ltd.

Still A Great Night – Still A Great Night

Still A Great Night - Still A Great Night

Still A Great Night’s new single will hit you right in the pit of your stomach. In a good way, but also in a bad way. In an uncomfortable, but intriguing way!

Still A Great Night like to summarise the weirdness in the world today with equally curious music. Think sporadic-sounding synth drums and LCD Soundsystem-inspired words speaking of relatable issues.

The Go! Team

The Go! Team

The Go! Team

The Brightonians are back! After a four year hiatus, The Go! Team returns with leading track ‘The Scene Between’, taken from their new album of the same title.

Frontman Ian Parton took the opportunity to return to the working methods he’d used at the origins of the band – crate digging, fooling around by himself, trying to nail a feeling. Parton elaborates, “I wanted to make an album driven by melody and song writing because catchiness is the hardest thing you can do. Brill Building hooks but permeated with a kind of wobbly VHS feel.”

‘The Scene Between’ on 24 March 2015 via Memphis Industries.

PALMEDO – Secret Lover



PALMEDO is the exciting new soulful, but electro-pop duo, Tim Plakon and Delia Albert.

PALMEDO formed in 2013 after deciding to work together on a side project during their sophomore year at the University of Florida. The writing chemistry soon took hold, and the project developed into a full-blown musical endeavor.

The duo has been working on their new EP, ‘Thread’, since November of 2013. The first single, ‘It’s You’, caught the attention of electronic music lovers and claims a successful remix by Dromes, a future garage DJ from Orlando.

PALMEDO’s second single taken from the EP is ‘Secret Lover’; a shimmering upbeat track with a dark-disco feel.

The EP was produced in collaboration with Tim’s brother, David Plakon (Tycho, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), at North Avenue Studios and will be released in early July.

Night Panther – Delta

Night Panther

Night Panther

Describing themselves as sexpop, Night Panther are Farzad Houshiarnejad, Michael Cammarata and Chris Radwanski from Doylestown in the US.

We are still shocked that they only have 860 followers on Soundcloud.

Their new track ‘Delta’ is 6 minutes of inspirational psychedelic vibes that immediately take you to a better place full of velvet, long hair and synths. The track teases you with a roller coaster of timings as it draws you in and builds you up.

Night Panther have just released ‘Delta’ on 7″ via blogger-backed Small Plate Records. It is limited to 500 copies on gold vinyl.

Their self-entitled EP is out now on iTunes via Small Plate Records.

The band have also covered ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ on the ‘Beatles Reimagined (Bonus Version)’ album which has an anticipated release date of 1 October via Community Projects, and features other bands such as Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and electronic remix master Brett.

Damn! We just can’t stop playing their sexy tunes!
