Is 9 your lucky number? We’ve received some great submissions this week.
Enjoy them below!
Labrose – Disguise
“When your lips are too thick to speak, sing”. What a great motto to live by. Meet the writers behind this line, Labrose – a UK/US producer/singer/songwriter duo who create delicate electronica.
Ironically, their new single ‘Disguise’ is left wide open with a stripped back approach, giving perspective to the complicated nature of both love’s beauty and its toxicity. Pure bliss.
It’s out now on PM Recordings.
Sounds like: Rhye, Rationale, Jacob Banks, James Blake
ARY – Already There
Step aside ladies, Trondheim-raised / Oslo-based Norwegian solo artist ARY has arrived.
Her new single ‘Already There’ is ARY’s first attempt of a pop song, and it completely works. Pulsating synths worthy of club status and ethereal vocals, you won’t want to stop listening to it.
It’s out now via Petroleum Records.
Sounds like: Aurora, Sigrid, Kvelertak
Vessels – Deeper In A Sky Feat Harkin
Leeds-based five-piece Vessels share robust new single, ‘Deeper In A Sky’ featuring Harkin (aka Sky Larkin’s Katie Harkin), taken from their upcoming new album ‘The Great Distraction’ out on Different Recordings.
Speaking of the new album, Martin says, “The music acknowledges a bleakness and tension, but I think our response is optimistic and euphoric.”
Sounds like: Kate Boy, Caribou, Jon Hopkins
Child Ivory – Angie
US duo Child Ivory create uplifting music with a melancholic pinch.
Spacious vocals and a catchy AF guitar riff guide the dreamy ‘Angie’ through to our ears. Lovely.
Sounds like: KYKO, Phil Collins, The New Coast, Beach House, M83, Kurt Vile
LOVE SICK – Bullet
We are all love sick to some degree.
Scottish girl/boy duo LOVE SICK share debut single ‘Bullet’, an ode to both heartbreak and obsession.
The couple met at a work Christmas party when Julie drunkenly let slip to Shaun (who also produced in his spare time) that she always wanted to be a singer. A few weeks later the duo coincidentally bumped into each other at a train station, and the rest is cosmic pop.
Sounds like: ASTR, Dagny, COSBY
CAMARANO – Ashes
Another debut, this time from Perth-based artist and multi-instrumentalist, CAMARANO (aka Mat Cammarano).
Having previous been involved in performing with bands as well as producing and recording for other artists, Mat has decided to go it alone and release ‘Ashes’.
It’s a fuzzy masterpiece that would fit well in the lo-fi category, alongside the likes of Tame Impala, Big Scary or Bon Iver.
