German-based indie pop/rock band, LIONLION has just shared their new single, ‘Language’.
Centred around identical twins Michael & Matthias Rückert, their music is always visually-focused and cinematic in a minimalistic manner.
The video for ‘Language’ displays the highs and lows of the twins, and is a highly explosive, yet beautiful mixture.
Set in the ‘Haus des Volkes’, the “people’s house” and a symbol of the conflict within Germany during the Cold War, situated within the restricted zone of the inner-German border, it is the largest Bauhaus ensemble in Thuringia. Its architecture embodies functionality and thought-out design and echoes a more modernist Wes Anderson approach. In the video, this rational and clear visualisation is juxtaposed with the brothers’ emotional turmoil.
Expect their EP, ‘Rise & Fall’, to be out in October ahead of their second album ‘Perspective’, coming in spring 2020.

Napoleon Gold – Love Don’t Cut Me Down (feat. Haiva Ru)
French-born Antoine Honorez aka Napoleon Gold returns with his latest single ‘Love Don’t Cut Me Down’ featuring the vocals of Haiva Ru’s Allie Merril.
The track can be compared to an 80’s Fleetwood Mac song that’s been given an electronic boogie re-skin.
Speaking of the unique late-night feel of his music, Napoleon credits his life-long struggle with insomnia, “During my first year in Brussels for university, my insomnia became more and more frequent. I remember staying awake night after night, making music, watching the sunrise from my music desk – it had this beautiful orange and golden colour, I knew seeing this colour meant I had once again failed to sleep, but it also symbolised a new day, a new beginning. I decided to name that colour ‘Napoleon Gold'”.

Grammy-Award nominated producer and vocalist, and Mura Masa collaborator, Tom Tripp returns with his latest single ‘TAM’, the first release off his forthcoming project ‘FLAG’.
The electro-laced funk track started life back in 2016, undergoing various iterations on Tom’s Laptop until a session with Grades earlier this year led to a final version that the self-proclaimed perfectionist was finally happy to share with the world.
Nashville-based alternative pop act, Daniella Mason, is back with a dreamy new visual that continues her ‘Mental State’ EP and ‘State of Mine’ sound series in which she aims to explore different parts of our humanity.
With her latest music video release – shot and edited by Dylan Reyes – Mason aimed to create a dream sequence that visualises the feeling of wandering throughout her mind and expands on its aimlessness.
