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.

Vaults – Vultures

Vaults - Vultures

Vaults – Vultures

Vaults is a trio from London. They release haunting new single ‘Vultures’, which is taken from the forthcoming EP of the same name.

As the name suggests, ‘Vultures’ is an atmospheric track that immediately screams out grandeur, with strong vocals and multi-dimensional classical strings. We expect big things from Vaults in 2015.

The ‘Vultures EP’ is due for release 1 December on VIRGIN EMI as a digital download and limited edition 12-inch vinyl. The EP features two other brand new songs and a remix of the title track by Maya Jane Coles.

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.
