Klyne – Water Flow

Klyne by Synchrodogs

Klyne are a duo comprised of 22 year old producer Ferdous Dehzad and singer Nick Klein, who have already supported Years & Years and Christine and The Queens.

New track, ‘Water Flow’, was created in the Dehzad’s childhood bedroom. Both specifically love the muffled sounds of the piano chords. Unintentionally created? Perhaps, but we like the hazy outcome. It works well with the soulful vocals and electronic backdrop.

‘Water Flow’ is out now via Big Beat Records/Because Music.

Ardyn are brother and sister duo, Katy (vocals, keyboard) and Rob Pearson (guitar).

They have teamed up with Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, King Krule, Låpsley) for their new single, ‘Over The River’; a glistening track that is confidently guided by Katy’s alluring vocals.

Drawing on a fascination of peoples’ passing conversations and creating a world around a sound bite, Katy says of ‘Over The River’, “I wanted to imagine a couple’s conversation and the problems they were having in their relationship while transforming it into something visual linking to the natural world”.

We’ve included the visuals to the track, because it’s so glorious!

‘Over The River’ was released on 26 April through Aesop (SOHN, TĀLĀ, Klyne).

Klyne – Closer

Klyne

Klyne

Klyne is the musical partnership of Ferdous Dehzad and singer Nick Klein. They like to write infectious electronic pop.

New track ‘Closer’ has a sweet and soulful base, but you soon release this isn’t just any R&B track. As you delve in deeper and reach the chorus layers, you are impacted by Ferrous’s Hot Chip-esque, staccato synth lines.

Of the track, Klyne says;

“Closer is about someone going to the extreme in order to reach their lifelong desire, and at the same time coping with the fear that their fate might already be decided. One of life’s greater beauties is when a person breaks free of these psychological limitations. At first it looks like naive stubbornness, and the feelings of doubt never entirely go away. But then all of a sudden you’re halfway there, and that’s when you realize it is possible to actually achieve things that are beyond your “fate”. That’s the simple story we wanted to convey with this song – that and a ridiculous topline.”

It is out now via Aesop (SOHN, TALA, Sylas).

Sounds like: Ben Khan, James Blake, Boxed In, Hot Chip
