Stalgia – Talk To My Skin

Stalgia - Talk To My Skin

Stalgia seem to be channeling the provactive nature of Banks more and more, and we are definitely not complaining.

Their new single ‘Talk To My Skin’ is our favourite yet – hypnotising vocals repeat as a dirty synth line moans throughout the track until an ultimate climax at the end, resulting in both an inner and outer body musical experience.

Sounds like: Banks, IYES, SOHN, Liv Dawson, Lyves, Harper, LYROE

Lyves – Shelter

Lyves - Shelter

Lyves – Shelter

Lyves is the project of North London based singer / songwriter / producer Francesca Bergami; a young artist of Italian and Australian heritage, who grew up in Portugal, before moving to London to study Psychology.

Following on from last year’s well-received ‘Visions’ is the atmospheric ‘Shelter’. The track is so emotive and powerful that it should be listened to in the pouring rain. If you were in doubt of the talent of Bergami’s vocals, then don’t be any longer, as ‘Shelter’ is a stroke of soulful genius.

Lyves will release her debut EP in the Spring, which will be accompanied by her first ever headline show in London.
