KLOE – Touch

KLOE by Alena Jascanka

KLOE by Alena Jascanka

Glaswegian KLOE has been making waves in Scotland and beyond.

Her latest track ‘Touch’ has been produced by Lewis Gardiner of Scottish band Prides, and emulates modern youth, providing an honest insight into KLOE and the teenage generation of today. It features KLOE’s signature whispered vocals lined up over bass-laden synths.

KLOE said, “I’m so excited to finally be releasing new music. Touch is the last piece of the puzzle to my little trilogy – which began last December with Grip. The track is about a guy who introduced me to a lot of vice and made me grow up a lot. This song marks the end of an era – and also the beginning of what’s to come.”

Watch her teenage dream inspired video below.

‘Touch’ has been released through Columbia / IAMSOUND / National Anthem.

Kyla La Grange – So Sweet

Kyla La Grange

Kyla La Grange

The lovely Kyla La Grange is back, following the release of the enslaving ‘Cut Your Teeth‘, which was later remixed by tropical house DJ of the moment, Kygo.

Less of a goth princess this time, and more of an 80’s electro star, ‘So Sweet’ is a sugary pop treat. It has a backdrop of minimalistic synth beats, but it is Kyla’s vocals that really take the lead.

“I wrote So Sweet in my kitchen when I was feeling really happy and in love” explains Kyla, continuing “I started out with this arpeggiated jerky tuba type sound that I really liked but then wanted the choruses to feel a bit more cinematic with the dreamy guitars and harmonies, so there is kind of a weird contrast between the verses and the choruses, but I like it.”

If you’re wondering why the song feels different from Kyla’s previous material, she says “I guess 150bpm is pretty fast for a four to the floor track but I think it’s because I felt kind of buzzy when I was writing it. I never really wrote a love song before, at least not one that wasn’t sad.”

It is one of a collection of singles remixed by Jakwob.

Kyla will play Oval Space in London on 19 November; her biggest headline gig to date.

Little Boots – Better In The Morning

Little Boots

Little Boots

Back and meaning business is Little Boots (aka Victoria Hesketh) with her new track, ‘Better In The Morning’

‘Better In The Morning’ is “an ode to ‘the walk of shame’, the morning after the night before”.

We are not entirely convinced that things are better in the morning, but we certainly love the track!

The catchy number was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Madonna, Charli XCX) and has been taken from her third album, ‘Working Girl’, which is out on 10 July via On Repeat Records. Pre-order on iTunes.

Sounds like: St Etienne, Aeroplane, Lindstrøm, Ronika

Ronika – Marathon

Ronika

Ronika

Nottingham songstress Ronika is back with new track ‘Marathon’ and it’s a corker!

The self-written and produced ‘Marathon’ jumps straight into Ronika’s smooth Chaka Khan reverberating vocals and has a classic disco and soulful electronic vibe to it.

The song’s lyrics refer to that rush of energy you get when falling in love, and the high you get which makes you feel like you could do anything, like running a marathon.

Ronika’s ‘Marathon’ EP is her first new material since this summer’s acclaimed ‘Selectadisc’. The EP will be released on 1 December.

If you want to catch Ronika, she will be performing on 17 October at STFD‘s ‘The Summer After Party’ in Brixton, London. See below for more info and click for link to tickets!

Indiana – Heart on Fire

Indiana

Indiana

Nottingham songstress Indiana is back with a video for her new track, ‘Heart on Fire’. The video follows Indiana on a drug bust as a private detective, but we suspect there may be a little more than a bit of police activity going on between her and one of the two guys…

‘Heart on Fire’ is taken from her forthcoming 13 track debut album ‘No Romeo’ that will be released on 1 September 2014 on Epic.

Sounds like: Banks, Little Boots, Robyn, La Roux, Goldfrapp, Kyla La Grange

Ronika – Shell Shocked

Ronika

Ronika

Ronika has been a firm favourite of Indietronica’s for some time now.

We praised ‘Search Siren’, and now we are super excited about her new track, ‘Shell Shocked’; a dancey floor filler full of fab 80’s and summery vibes.

Whilst lining up some exciting new collaborations for 2014, Ronika has already worked with the likes of Mylo and Herve, and recruited an eclectic cast of co-producers for a handful of songs on her debut album, ‘Selectadisc’ including Mixmag’s best new DJ of the year, Citizen, Brooklyn duo Javelin, and local hip-hop pioneer Joe Buddha. Oh and we forgot to mention that Nile Rogers is fan.

Her debut album, ‘Selectadisc’ is out on 2 June 2014 and is available for pre-order now via RecordShop. The title of the album is an ode to ‘Selectadisc’, Nottingham’s iconic independent record-store, which closed its doors for the final time in 2009.

She really is the nicest girl in pop!
