Time for some darker electronica from Australia, courtesy of Sydney-based duo, PLGRMS.
Their latest release is called ‘Dream You Up’. In one part, it’s a brooding number, led my bass laced drums, but also warm and uplifting at the same time, with its innovative riffs of a spritely nature.
Speaking on the lyrical meaning behind the track, Jacob Pearson from the band explained,
“When there’s mystery behind something or someone, it’s so interesting and intriguing. By nature we just can’t help ourselves and want to find out what it is. It’s the anticipation and the thrill of what we don’t understand. I’ve gone through it, but when you unveil the truth, the magic just disappears. So, it’s about stopping yourself from understanding it completely, so that thrill can hang around a bit longer.”
London based duo, Otzeki, have just shared the video for ‘All This Time’.
The video is made up of footage recorded on vocalist Mike’s iPhone over the past two years in various locations including LA, London and Cambridge. “It a visual diary of things,” explains Mike. “Like our previous videos the subject matter is contained within everyday reality and gives it a certain enigmatic quality in line with the themes of the song.”
The blues-ridden and minimal intro of ‘All This Time’ slowly envelopes us with its sub soul vocals, sensual bass lines, tribal tones, and echoes of rave culture, eventually leading to an intimate and dreamy climax.
The track has been mixed by Nathan Boddy (James Blake, S.W.E.A.T).
They play the Sebright Arms in London on 23 March.
Join Foreign Air on their soul-pop ride, driven by ‘Caffeine’.
We all know caffeine makes us feel good for a little while, but as the benefits wear off, we need another kick. It’s a little like love, which often becomes addictive but for the wrong reasons. It’s just what Foreign Air are singing about in their new track.
Taking a much darker tone than ‘Sleeping In‘, Los Angeles-based PHIL GOOD shares ‘Growing Up’.
The track has a brooding pace which matches perfectly with PHIL GOOD’s sultry vocals.
Speaking on the track, he explains,
“I wanted this song to be heavier and darker than I’ve ever gone before, both musically and lyrically. I think Growing Up captures that feeling of restlessness and insanity that occurs when you’re trying to get over something or someone, but your mind and your body are fighting you back as hard as they can. I’m extremely happy with how this song turned out and I can’t wait to play it live.”
