Say Lou Lou – Nothing But A Heartbeat

Say Lou Lou

Say Lou Lou

To celebrate the release of Say Lou Lou‘s debut album, ‘Lucid Dreaming’, the sisters have revealed a short film encapsulating the essence of the album in its entirety.

The film, set to the band’s single ‘Nothing But A Heartbeat’, was devised by the band and directed by Joanna Nordahl (Lune, Ji Nilsson). Alongside the album body of work, inspiration has been sought from Lars Von Trier’s ‘Melancholia’, Hans Zimmer and ‘On Being Ill’ by Virginia Woolf while drawing parallels to religious ideology and exploration of mental sanity. The band appear in a dream-like state, surrealistic and boundless with abstract thoughts running free.

The band explain the idea; ”Dreams are a way for human minds to digest their memories, and this film is sort of a digestion of our experiences of these past years as Say Lou Lou.”

Watch the stunning short film below:

Lucid Dreaming is available now via À Deux/Cosmos Music and can be purchased on iTunes here.

Lowell – I Love You Money

A classically trained musician, Toronto-based singer Lowell suffers from a rare neurological condition known as synaesthesia which causes her to process sound as colours thus having a huge influence on her music and visions.

Despite the fun and chaotic video for ‘I Love You Money’, Lowell writes to empower herself as much as her listeners. Lyrics openly tackle sexual abuse, rape, abortion, and women’s rights. She stridently addresses the lack of LGBT rights in our society as well the ignorance about (and simultaneous obsession with) homosexuality.

Lowell releases her debut album ‘We Loved Her Dearly’ in the UK on 9 March through Arts & Crafts.

Billy Who – My Heart Will Mend

We are still none the wiser about Swedish outfit Billy Who, after receiving an email from them simply enclosing a link to their new track ‘My Heart Will Mend’. We have an inkling that they enjoy playing with their anonymity, but despite this we are still anticipating big things from the duo in 2015.

‘My Heart Will Mend’ is a slow and steady electronic track with mesmerising tribaltropica tones.

Sounds like: Ji Nilsson, Susanne Sundfør, Lykke Li, Mons Montis, Ballet School, Oh My O

Ji Nilsson – Encore

The Swedish singer/songwriter Ji Nilsson is back with the self-produced ‘Encore’.

From the instant you play ‘Encore’, you drift away to a sunnier setting, however it’s not all white sandy beaches and cocktails as Nilsson sings about the possible end of a holiday romance.

Just like her last track ‘Heartbreakfree’, the steady beat remains simple whilst the crux of the track is the emotive lyrics.

Sounds like: Noosa, Keljet, Marlene, Indiana, Brick & Lace, Robyn

Ji Nilsson – Heartbreakfree

We freely admit that we are a bit late on this one.

Swedish Ji Nilsson released ‘Heartbreakfree’ back in April but it wasn’t until now that we found about her via the recent Keljet remix of the track.

The track is about slamming on the breaks in a relationship before it goes past the friendship stage; remaining heartbreak free. Pretty wise if you ask us!

And here’s the awesome Keljet remix of the track:
