Magnus Bechmann – Bruises
We all have those moments at the traffic lights when the amber light strikes. Do we slam the breaks on or speed on through the looming red light? Luckily for us, 21 year old Norwegian native, Magnus Bechmann is willing to take the risk and “go all in” with his music.
The result is the playful indietronica track, ‘Bruises’.
Sounds like: Kid Astray, Phoenix, Two Door Cinema Club
VOKES – Screens
Los Angeles-based band VOKES question society with their new single, ‘Screens’.
It’s a feel-good number about not such a feel-good subject of addiction to technology, which we are all guilty off, so how about we put down our phones and take a listen?
MRCH – My Mistake
MRCH are seriously doing it for us at the moment.
The video for the Phoenix duo’s new single ‘My Mistake’ takes us on an intergalactic journey exploring NASA found footage and cimenatic-like visions of vocalist, Mickey Pangburn.
Sounds like: Goldfrapp, Wolf Alice, Lilies On Mars, CHVRCHES, Garbage
Two Islands – Still Life
Liverpool-based Two Islands remain mysterious, but nonetheless we enjoy their indie anthems.
Their new single, ‘Still Life’, is another ambitious release and a bid to “reclaim the romance of falling in love with an artist solely through their songs.”
Their positive attitude and knack of creating groovy bangers definitely sets them apart.
Sounds like: Island Club, Tuska
Fever High – Good Advice Feat. Jeff Goldblum
Time to get nostalgic with ‘Good Advice’ by NYC-based duo Fever High (aka guitarist/singer Anna Nordeen and singer/songwriter Reni Lane).
Apart from bohemian vocals and interludes of joyous guitars and tambourines, the song features anecdotes about bad advice from none other than Jeff Goldblum!
Sounds like: Icona Pop, The Bangles
MagnusTheMagnus – Calling Feat. KIDDO
We finish this week’s gems with Swedish producer MagnusTheMagnus‘ new single, ‘Calling’ featuring KIDDO.
The off-kilter pirate radio station beat throughout the track reminds us a bit of Jamie xx in its innovation. Add KIDDO’s enticing vocals and you have a unique and highly danceable track.
Sounds like: Santigold, Tove Styrke, MØ, Jamie xx, Major Lazer
