It’s not long until the end of the year, and what better way to see 2017 through with a playlist from Chelsea Lankes. This one goes out to all the ladies, and is probably one of the best playlists we’ve ever had! Lucky you!

“Here are some favorites over the last couple months including songs from favorite albums this year: SZA, Phoebe Bridgers, YOUTH, Lorde and Wolf Alice. Also I put a few singles from female pop artists I love and respect! To be enjoyed while driving at night, at low key parties, showering or anywhere you might sing really loud alone. 🙂”

…And whilst we have you, give Chelsea’s new track a spin too.

Avec Sans – Resonate

Avec Sans - Resonate

Avec Sans – Resonate

New track from sparkling synth duo Avec Sans (aka Alice Fox and Jack St. James) is up!

The meaning of ‘Resonate’ is to produce or be filled with a deep, full, reverberating sound. The Avec Sans sound is built around Jack’s experimentation with hacked Launchpad controllers, of which he is an endorsee for manufacturer Novation. Jack uses several of the controllers in tandem to display light shows as well as to produce the music, resulting in a shimmering synthpop sound that has drawn comparison to Chvrches.

Sounds like: CHVRCHES, MS MR, Grimes, Kyla La Grange, EXGF, ATB, Kitten, ASTR, Racing Glaciers, Goldroom, RAC, The Knocks, Tegan & Sara

Vogue Dots – Way With Silence

Vogue Dots - Way With Silence

Vogue Dots – Way With Silence

Vogue Dots (aka Tynan Dunfield Babette Hayward) is a Canadian pop duo from Halifax, New Brunswick. We were first drawn in by their name but soon became distracted by their haunting, yet alluring music.

Mesmerising new single, ‘Way With Silence’, follows on from the success of ‘Way Out’ (which was originally released on Cascine’s digital singles label CSCN).

‘Way With Silence’ is a mysterious, but gorgeously melodic track. It is full of synth-based structures, yet instantly evokes lament.

The track is taken from the forthcoming sophomore ‘Mauka EP’, which was recorded in a cottage on Belle Isle and is due out 21 October via Montreal’s Indica Records. It follows on from last summer’s debut EP ‘Toska’.

Pre-order the ‘Mauka EP’ on iTunes now!

Sounds like: M83, Broods, VÉRITÉ, BLSHS, July Child, La Roux, CHVRCHES, London Grammar, Kitten, Mogwai
