Glassio – Morning House Feat. Charles Fauna

Glassio

Glassio put together an awesome playlist for us last year, so we’re super excited to share their new electro-pop track, ‘Morning House’ featuring Brooklyn artist/producer, Charles Fauna.

Despite growing up in different parts of the world (Sam between Dubai and London and Charlie in Paris), these musical cultures have merged to form the sound of Glassio that we know today.

‘Morning House’, written out of their bedroom studio, was fuelled by the need to dispel negative energy; “Morning House” is an homage to living in the moment, mindfulness, and self-reflection.”

Sounds like: Aquilo, Foals, Jagwar Ma, Rüfüs, Flume, Odesza, Bob Moses, Glass Animals, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Playlist: Avante Black

Avante Black

Avante Black

Meet Avante Black, a musical project led by Ottilia Zimmerman Kjulsten, a 22-year-old Swedish native living in London.

She’s put together a playlist, to get us hyped up for the weekend.

Frank Ocean – Ivy
I took time listening to Frank Ocean’s new album driving down the coast from Cape Point to Cape Town. This song fits perfectly into the scenery and I think I had it on repeat for almost an hour.

The Internet – Get Away
Sydney Bennett’s vocals and melodies are just truly magical. Listening to this track makes you just wanna take long drags on cigarettes in slow motion whilst watching the sun go down.

Sälen – Coppar Kiss
I’ve known these guys for a while know. Paul is even the first person I got to know when I moved to London. The people combination is perfect, this song is so pretty and brutal I wanna marry it.

Flamingods – Rhama
There is nothing you can’t love about this. A trippy beat, Middle-Eastern riffs and hitting vocals. Was sold within the first seconds and it keeps growing.

Acid Arab – Stil
My friend showed me this track on a recent trip to Berlin. I’m just getting into dance music and this was a really good introduction. Right up my alley.

A Band Called Flash – Phantom
Another track I was shown that really showed me a new way of writing. Close to perfection, this track will take you everywhere and back.

Valdemar – Soë Chlevigny
Ben used to play the keys in Avante, but is now based in Sweden. He was always the one knowing everything about everything. We do miss his music knowledge! This is his own project and it sounds incredible!! We’re so proud!

BadBadNotGood – Lavender
I first encountered this band whilst flicking through Tyler, The Creator videos on YouTube. Since then I’ve been glued to their sound.

Lil Silva – De Ja
I found this track stalking Ben’s (Valdemar) playlists on Spotify. As I said he always knows what’s good and fresh out there. It’s a brilliant pop track, so simple and clever. I find myself singing this all the time.

Flume – Say It Feat Tove Lo
I’m a massive fan of Tove Lo and Flume. I love the feel and the lyrics. Always lose my shit when she sings “let me fuck you right back oh oh oh oh”

Miss Li – Bonfire
Since I picked up a guitar for the first time I was practising to her songs and really excited about this sound she’s bringing! Can’t wait for spring listening to this in the car! (with someone else driving ’til I get my license)

Otzeki – Already Dead
If you haven’t witnessed these guys live you HAVE to. It’s a truly magical experience. Mike and Joel will take you places. Even tho the song is called ‘Already Dead’ I’d say it’s immortal.

Soft Hair – Lying Has To Stop
Brilliant combination, magical people. True Love.

Whitney – Golden Days
I was probably a year later than my friends to start listening to this band, I’m happy I did! It’s the song you listen to on a double decker with your head against the window, gazing out, not really knowing what you’re thinking about.

The Parrots – No Me Gustas, Te quiero
I met The Parrots through Hinds, first time a saw them was at The Garage in Highbury & Islington – the vibe was insane. There is always a special place in my heart for this music. It makes me feel 14 again.

Avante Black has signed to Different Recordings (Anna Of The North, Claptone, Kllo), and expect a very cool remix coming out next week. In the meantime, check out the ever so dynamic track, ‘Drug Money’.

Sounds like: Anna Of The North, Anteros, Lilly Allen

TEIP – Fingertips

TEIP - Fingertips

TEIP – Fingertips

We are sharing ‘Fingertips’; a charming new track from a four-piece, Anglo-Norwegian producer collective based in Oslo called TEIP.

Merging music in the genres of indie electronica, pop, chillwave and elements of alternative R&B, TEIP have been making music for a few years now.

‘Fingertips’ is more of a minimalistic offering than their previous releases, but we can’t get enough of the fragments of synths and eloquent female vocals that we’ve not seen from them before.

‘Fingertips’ is out now on DaWorks.

Sounds like: Flume, Chet Faker

Taka Perry – Slow (Feat. Jordi Davis)

Taka

Taka

Recent student, Taka Perry, has just shared his melodic and fantastical single, ‘Slow’.

Although written some time ago, the track has only just seen the light of day on the blogosphere, partly due to some friends from high school secretly creating a video for Taka, using an older demo version of the song, which obviously took Taka by surprise.

Of the video, Taka explains,

“The video is about a girl that doesn’t actually exist, but a figment of imagination inside the singer’s head. Whilst the video is predominantly comprised of imagery and visuals, the absence of other characters, sets an eerie undertone to the video, whilst bringing the attention back to the main character.”

He has enlisted the vocal talents of his friend, Jordi Davis (String Elephants).

For a limited time, ‘Slow’ is being offered as a free download on Taka’s Soundcloud page.

Sounds like: Chet Faker, Flume, Fort Minor, Bonobo, Solomon Grey
