Rudie Edwards – Lover Like You

Rudie Edwards

Meet Rudie Edwards, a London-based artist full of sass and bubbling sounds.

As well as creating her own music and attending the renowned BRIT School, she has also written for the likes of CeeLo Green, Erik Hassle, and Beatrice Eli.

The video for her new track, ‘Lover Like You’, is a funk-fuelled bonanza of colour and sexuality. Of the track, Rudie explains,

“Lover Like You” is about knowing what you want from a lover and not being afraid to express it or ask for it and sees the singer dancing with reckless abandon in the midst of a disco tinged glitter party.

“The mission is to wake people up…I want to make some bloody noise that doesn’t sound like all of the other bloody noise out there.”

Favorite Child – Just Wanna Belong

Favourite Child

Favourite Child

Rebel pop group, Favorite Child release the funky number ‘Just Wanna Belong’, featuring the vocals of Eric Rapp. Slightly ironic, as Favorite Child don’t really appear to be bothered if they fit in or not;

“We have an almost childish approach to putting songs together that really defines our style. As musicians, we reached the point where we no longer care about what’s expected from us. It’s part of ‘why don’t we try this, might sound cool?’ and part ‘fuck you we won’t do what you tell us’. It’s sort of like the rebel and the mad scientist in perfect harmony.”

‘Just Wanna Belong’ will be released later this spring via Roxy Recordings. Go get!

Exclusive: ROOM8 Playlist

ROOM8

ROOM8

ROOM8 is a Los Angeles based duo composed of Ezra Reich and Nic Johns. They produce ice cold synth pop for late summer nights.

They kindly put together a playlist for us, and we are pleased to say it includes most of the artists already covered on Indietronica at some point!

Giorgio Moroder – From Here to Eternity

The one old classic included on this playlist. The godfather of synth/dance/pop/disco.

Noonie Bao – Pyramids

Much of the modern music we listen to is Scandinavian. Great track from Noonie who writes with Charlie XCX but we like the Kate Bush meets Bjork quirkiness of her voice and vibe.

ROOM8 (Feat. King Deco) – No Hard Feelings

Our single from summer 2015. An ice cold breakup song over a sunny beat.

Ji Nilsson – Nothing

Ji is one of our favorite Swedish singers. Heartbreak Free is one of her best, but Nothing, off her latest EP, is a heart wrenching honest and gorgeous song which always cuts us to the core.

Erik Hassle – Talk About It

One of our favourite modern male vocalists. Minimal and perfect jam.

Kate Boy – Self Control

Kate and Markus are friends of ours and fantastic musicians. This one is one of our favorites they have done. Peter Gabriel beat with Knife-esque vox. Perfect.

Elliphant – Step Down

The latest from our homegirl Elli. This one should be massive. Perfect piece of Caribbean electro pop. “You’re hot, I’m cold thats why I thought we could make a cloud but you can’t get no higher, fuck it, your not my type at all”.

Electric Youth and ROOM8 – Without You

The song we co-wrote and produced with Electric Youth for their debut album Innerworld. About imminent loss.

Niki & The Dove – So Much it Hurts

The new jam from them. Perfect synths, echoes of Fleetwood Mac.

Foxes – Body Talk

A song that didn’t get nearly enough love in 2015. Any music with the words “Body” and “Talk” in it is amazing whether it’s Robyn, Tove Lo, Kix, Ratt, The Deele or, in this case, Foxes.

Whilst we have you, have a listen to ROOM8’s new track with Christina (aka Little Boots).

Sounds like: St Etienne, Aeroplane, Lindstrøm, Ronika, RAC

Cilia – Silhouettes in Slow Motion

Cilia

Cilia

Out of nowhere has appeared a little pop star who goes by the name of Cilia.

Cilia grew up in a small village, where music was her focus. Her new track ‘Silhouettes in Slow Motion’ is a sparkling pop gem, which Cilia says is about;

“How girls expect everything to be as in a romantic movie, that you expect too much, that perfect kiss scene with that “perfect guy” from your favorite movie, the guy who “read your mind” , knows when you are sad and are outside your door with roses and chocolate, the guy that does not exist.”

The track has been produced by Alx Go and Kim W (Tove Lo, Icona Pop, Erik Hassle) and the video is by Kentsdottir Art & Production.
