Billie Eilish – hostage

Billie Eilish

Exciting pop star, Billie Eilish shares her latest track called ‘hostage’.

It’s a stripped back song, but despite its all acoustic feel, and much like all of Billie’s music, there is a darker side, as she explains “”hostage” is a song that borders on and explores the unhealthy side of love. Billie points out “when you are so in love that you feel like you can’t be without them and you can’t see them with someone else. It is not a healthy feeling but I think everyone feels it at some point.”

Her “dont smile at me” EP is out now via Darkroom/Interscope Records and has been produced by Billie’s 19-year-old brother Finneas O’Connell.

Sounds like: Dua Lipa, Astronomyy, Ella Vos, Tempers, Charlotte Cardin

Meet Mr Jacob Banks, a neo-soul artist from the UK.

Updating a genre that’s been part of music for decades, ‘Unholy War’ is a determined track that may just bring soul into the digital age.

Although not a typical indietronica track, we can’t get enough of Banks’ smooth vocals and the track’s punchy riffs and textured beats.

It is the first offering from Jacob’s upcoming EP, ‘The Boy Who Cried Freedom’, out this spring on Interscope Records. He is currently on tour with LÉON in the US, and will be playing SXSW.

Sounds like: Rationale, Aloe Blacc, Rag’n’Bone Man, Emeli Sandé, Sam Smith, Salt Ashes, Ben Khan

Leon Else – Dance

Leon Else

Moving his way into our hearts is British-born musician and trained dancer, Leon Else, and the video for his new release called ‘Dance’.

Much like depression, the beats in the retro-ridden track are erratic and unpredictable, but Leon pushes through to his own drum, exclaiming, “The song is about dancing as a way to make depression go away…It is about how music can be like medicine and finding ways to get through life by yourself. For me, that’s moving and being physical.”

‘Dance’ is out now via Interscope Records.

Sounds like: Bruno Mars, Fyfe, Ben Khan

Sir Sly – You Haunt Me

Sir Sly - You Haunt Me

Sir Sly – You Haunt Me

From the first listen to ‘Ghost’, we have been obsessed with Los Angeles trio, Sir Sly.

We are super excited to announce that ‘You Haunt Me’ is the first single to be released from the upcoming debut album with the same title.

The video is crisp and simple, like the basis of the track which is about recovering from a lost love. Despite its poppy sound, the lyrics are understandably melancholic. A true indie love song.

The album will be released via Cherrytree / Interscope Records on 16 September. If you pre-order on iTunes now, you will instantly receive 5 free tracks.

Sounds like: Wolf Gang, Pistol Shrimp, All We Are, Brotherun, Gypsy & The Cat, Jagwar Ma, St. Lucia, The 1975
