Otis English – Young Kids, Old Love

Otis English

Otis English

Meet Otis English, an extraordinary and highly relatable Los Angeles-based musician who has a bit of a rollercoaster background (which includes accidentally burning down his family home when he was younger).

His debut is a well-crafted pop track called ‘Young Kids, Old Love’, that is endearing as much as it is unapologetically gritty.

We are expecting good things from Otis English.

His upcoming debut EP will be released shortly via Crooked Paintings. The single is available on iTunes now.

Sanctuary Sound – One Clear Thought

Sanctuary Sound

Sanctuary Sound

Sanctuary Sound is the project of multi-instrumentalist Cade Sadler, who creates peaceful and reflective music.

It consists only of him, a lap top, and an old Stratocaster, and with these minimal apparatus, he creates dreamy, atmospheric guitar drones underscored by deep back beat grooves.

Despite the track appearing to be ‘One Clear Thought’, the process of production is joyfully flustering; starting off with glitchy gameboy-style keys, followed by contemporary vocals and rhythmic drums, later finishing with distorted interruptions.

His five-track EP, ‘Brass Ring’, is out now.

Sounds like: Jack Garratt, Honne, Tame Impala, Summer Heart, Day Wave, Death Cab for Cutie, The Postal Service, Brian Eno, Bob Dylan

morgxn – love you with the lights on

morgxn

morgxn

All round American musician, morgxn has singing in his blood. His grandfather, a Vaudeville singer in the same circuit as Eddie Cantor, was instrumental in instilling a deep love of music, singing, and songwriting.

morgxn’s debut, ‘love you with the lights on’ is a euphoric single brimming with smoky sensuality, and deeply personal lyrics.

“I find it really hard to talk about beauty because my whole life has been people telling me what they think is beautiful on me. The problem is that from early age it was difficult to decipher beauty from danger – and i’ve spent a lifetime running from beauty,”

“What is it we see when we look at ourselves in the mirror? Do we see our reflection or do we see some warped version of our reflection based on years of abuse and rejection and judgment and …. fuck. What if we saw each other with the light on some eternal/internal flame that seared through the heart of it all and exposed who we really are – fierce, loving, beating hearts.”

The track is out via wxnderlost records.

SG Lewis – Holding Back (Feat. Gallant)

SG Lewis

SG Lewis

Well, this is a brilliant collaboration.

London based producer, SG Lewis shares ‘Holding Back’, featuring accomplished, Los Angeles vocalist, Gallant.

‘Holding Back’ is reminiscent of the upbeat tones of ‘All Night’, and both artists are feeling the outcome of working together.

SG said of the collab: “I’d been listening to Gallant for ages when I wrote the track, and sent it over to see if he’d be into it. He flipped the meaning of the song completely, which was so exciting.”

Gallant also commented: “I’m a huge fan of SG. I think he’s one of the most talented rising producers around right now. He’s making incredibly special music that’s unique and stylish.”

It’s released via Jasmine Music and available for purchase on iTunes.

THALAB – Wreck

Thalab

Thalab

Thalab are two cousins from Barcelona, who blend soft, guitar riffs with deep electronica.

The duo discovered when they were 14 that they were into the same music – a wide range of sounds from singer songwriters to techno and house. They made music late into the night discovering an affinity that is at the heart of Thalab…that is, creating melancholic music you want to dance to.
