We all have those moments at the traffic lights when the amber light strikes. Do we slam the breaks on or speed on through the looming red light? Luckily for us, 21 year old Norwegian native, MagnusBechmann is willing to take the risk and “go all in” with his music.
The result is the playful indietronica track, ‘Bruises’.
Sounds like: Kid Astray, Phoenix, Two Door Cinema Club
UK based band Everywhere share their bright new number, ‘Man Up’, which features vocals by Swedish singer/songwriter Rebecca Nohr.
The band’s name is inspired by the quote “Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere” by former Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown. Having already played the NME Awards alongside Django Django and Palma Violets, and supporting the Kaiser Chiefs, we suspect Everywhere fit into the latter part of category.
Hardly casual, the track considers what it’s like to be a man in the modern world, delving into themes about unfulfilled expectations.
Expect an album later this year.
Sounds like: ISLAND, Sam Feldt, Gryffin, Fickle Friends, Of Monsters And Men, Kid Astray, Oh Wonder
We are super excited that Kid Astray are back, and their defiant new track does not disappoint.
An collective of musical instruments and instantly memorable vocal hooks, ‘Fall To My Knees’ is about why Kid Astray are sharing their music;
“Fall to My Knees” is about a gig we played in Berlin in the spring of 2015. We were having a really tough time, battling some undue negativity in the media and in the people around us. We just wanted to quit, go to sleep, and not play this showcase at a club. But that show just blew up and made us remember why in the world we’re so determined to keep on doing this. It’s pretty big for a couple of 20 year olds to able to play a sold-out show in the hipster capitol of Europe. And this song is a reminder of that.”
It’s out now via Sony Music.
Sounds like: Smallpools, Passion Pit, Pistol Shrimp, M83, Holy Ghost!, Two Door Cinema Club, Young Kato, Ballet School
Taking a year out to work on their creativity, tight-knit trio, PrinzeGeorge, are back with the brilliant ‘Freeze’.
Vocalist, Naomi Almquist, has taken a slight turn in the direction of Stevie Nicks on this one, but Kenny Grimm on production/instrumental, and Isabelle De Leon on drums, keep us reminded of the dazzling Prinze George sound that we love here at Indietronica.
It’s the first song taken from their upcoming album, ‘Illiterate Synth Pop’, recorded with Evan Bakke (Prince, Fraea, SoulAsylum).
Sounds like: Stevie Nicks, Birdy, Foxes, Kid Astray, MS MR, Indiana, X Priest X, Years & Years, Chvrches, The Naked and Famous, Pistol Shrimp, Little Boots
Copenhagen-based quartet, SAINTBEST debut the video for ‘In The Morning’; also a tribute to 1985 Japanese cult film, ‘Tampopo’.
Usually a time for the most weary, this energetic synth-pop number will get you dancing straight out of bed. And this pretty much sums up the SAINT BEST ethos; always seeing the positive in things and not holding back as there will always be tomorrow.
When their rehearsal space burned to the ground, along with all of their instruments, the foursome saw this as a new beginning, and thus began the new sound of SAINT BEST. The ruined guitars were substituted with synthesisers and samples. Inspired by nu-disco and new wave, SAINT BEST decided to make danceable electro-pop. “We were looking for a new dynamic sound and got together around a percussion and synth-driven sound universe”.
‘In The Morning’ is released via Fake Diamond Records.
