Weekly Gems 16

Magnus Bechmann – Bruises

Magnus Bechmann

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

VOKES

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

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

Two Islands

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

Fever High

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

Magnus The Magnus - 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

Anteros – The Beat

Anteros by Marc Sethi

Anteros by Marc Sethi

If indulgence is what London-based Anteros have for breakfast, then ‘The Beat’ is the champagne-fuelled brunch that follows shortly after.

Anteros are offering us yet another fabulous video. Again, the focus is on front woman, Laura Hayden, but this time the scenes flip between heavenly shots of Laura lying on a bed, and disco-fevered ones of Laura dancing in a red and purple lit dancehall.

‘The Beat’ is taken from their forthcoming second EP ‘Breakfast’, due out on 19 September via Kissability.

Sounds like: Ladyhawke, Blondie, Of Monsters and Men, Montoya, Bastille, Temper Trap, Garbage, The Cardigans, Actor

Anteros – Breakfast

Anteros

Anteros

Anteros, a four-piece from London, share the seemingly self-indulgent video for ‘Breakfast’.

Speaking about the video, lead singer Laura Hayden said:

“Our aim was so depict situations women get themselves into on the road to finding love & happiness. There’s still pressure for us to be perfect in every aspect, like we’re constantly having to to modify ourselves in order to find our “happily every after”. Our relationships, careers, body, lifestyle, etc. We spend our whole lives focusing on what we don’t have & need to change – instead of enjoying the present. Each character in the video has been inspired by loads of different females: from Charlotte in Lost in Translation (played by Scarlett Johansson) and Beyoncé in Why Don’t You Love Me, to a Barbie Doll.”

‘Breakfast’ is Anteros’s first release on Kissability (Circa Waves, DZ Deathrays), out now.

Sounds like: Of Monsters and Men, Montoya, Bastille, Temper Trap, Garbage, The Cardigans, Actor
