Time for something beautiful from Emma Sameth, who has collaborated with DNTST and Berg on new track ‘2AM’.

Originally recorded with jazz in mind, DNTST and Berg gave ‘2AM’ a darker and more electronic twist, really embracing Emma’s soft R&B vocals.

This is definitely one to listen to as you’re snuggled up inside, away from the pouring rain.

Sälen – Diseasey

Sälen

Sälen have shared their debut video for ‘Diseasey’, an intoxicating portrait of outspoken vocalist Ellie Kamio catching the disease.

Not all the lyrics were written by Sälen though. Ellie’s mum helped her out with the lyric “bint”, following a description of the woman who Ellie’s dad was cheating on her with.

Lesson learnt. Don’t mess with Sälen.

It’s out now via Machine Records.

The Erised – Liar

The Erised

The Erised

The Erised are a five-piece from Ukraine, comprised of drum & bass producers Detail and Hidden Element, and dancer-turned-singer/songwriter, Sonya.

Although their music stems from drum & bass, this group create a immersive collective of jazz, rock and pop.

You could be tricked into thinking the single ‘Liar’ is an indietronica track with Sonya’s opulent vocals, but every now and then snippets of dark and vibrant instrumentals drum & bass hit our ears, building to a great rocky crescendo at the end. Lovely.

They are releasing their debut album with Hospital Records‘ derivative Med School. Pre-order the album, ‘Room 414’, on iTunes, and you’ll get ‘Liar’ as an instant grat.

Kacy Hill – Experience

Kacy Hill - Experience

Kacy Hill – Experience

Tipped for great things is Kacy Hill.

Now situated in Los Angeles, Hill was originally from Phoenix. The model-come-singer stumbled upon writing music by accident and we are glad she did.

Her first track ‘Experience’ has been produced by Jaylien Wesley and is described as being about “otherworldly vocal and futuristic production which is matched by a compelling visual, inspired by the intricacies of being human and our ability to think into detail and absorb meaning behind subconscious and conscious action.”

This point of view is resonated in the futuristic Stephen Garnett-directed video for ‘Experience’, which is simple but magnetic, reminiscent of something from an alien movie.
