ELIZA – Mad For You

Eliza- Mad For You

Eliza- Mad For You

Keen violinist, ELIZA, has shared her beautiful electro pop track, ‘Mad For You’.

Originally recorded as an acoustic piano version about unexpected feelings in September, Latvian producer MKR (Makree) soon got his hands on ‘Mad For You’ and turned up the volume.

ELIZA explains of the track, “Three words that would best describe “Mad For You” are longing, distance and passion.”

The track is out now.

Sounds like: Izzy Bizu, Jake Alder, Kellen, AlunaGeorge, Honne, Sia, Dominique

Phantom Runners – First Time

Phantom Runners

Phantom Runners

Phantom Runners is the moniker of pop producer ADAL (aka Adam Al-Hilali).

Forged through a love of R&B, pop and 80’s music, Phantom Runners are embarking on a journey of collaboration. Working on an album featuring several vocalists, the initial track is the aptly named ‘First Time’, featuring Brooke Bailey.

“‘First Time’ is a track about chasing that first feeling you get with someone, that initial rush,” explains ADAL.

Co-produced by John Beck (Izzy Bizu, Delilah, Corinne Bailey Rae), ‘First Time’ is three minutes of scintillating 80’s nostalgia over fresh electronic beats, boasting retro synths eloquently blended with sun-splashed soulful vocals.

Mallrat – For Real

Mallrat

Mallrat

Mall rats tend to hang round shopping centres with their friends, and we kind of get the vibe that this musical Mallrat is a social creature.

At just 17, Mallrat is causing a bit of a stir in her home country of Australia, and beyond, making fun, sociable and youthful pop music.

Her new track ‘For Real’ is just that, and includes some 90’s dance piano chords and an old school, hip-hop beat as well. Lovely.

Sounds like: Alice Jemima, Grimes, Yung Lean, Charli XCX, Izzy Bizu, Uffie

After the first listen of Jorja Smith‘s release, ‘Blue Lights’, we knew the independent 18 year old has something extremely special and were excited to hear more.

Her new track ‘Where Did I Go?’ doesn’t disappoint.

Produced by Cadenza, ‘Where Did I Go?’ gives us a deep insight to the thoughts and feelings of a break-up through elegant piano chords and Jorja’s soft vocals.

Honne & Izzy Bizu – Someone That Loves You

Izzy Bizu

Izzy Bizu

Gentlemen duo, HONNE, have teamed up with fellow UK artist, 22 year old, Izzy Bizu.

They met over Twitter, and decided to write ‘Someone That Loves You’, a simmering cut of electro soul.

Izzy says of the song, “it’s a song all about how we want what we can’t have and how the grass is always greener”. Driven by the rich, affecting mix of male/female vocals, ‘Someone That Loves You’ is likewise described by HONNE as a song “fundamentally about forbidden love, but from both sides of the story.”

Izzy Bizu’s debut album ‘A Moment of Madness’ is now set for release on 22 July.
