Jenny Kern – Satellite

Jenny Kern

We’ve been blown away by Jenny Kern‘s beautiful voice in her new single, ‘Satellite’.

The Canadian-born, New York-based film and TV producer turned singer-songwriter draws on her own experiences as her songs unfold through a confessional-style delivery revealing the strength that can only come through vulnerability.

The new single is produced by Andy Seltzer (Maggie Rogers, Chelsea Cutler). Speaking of the track, Kern explains,

“It’s almost cathartic, sharing emotion. Being open is not an easy feat for anyone. I want people to know that these songs come from an honest place. We all struggle to find comfort in ourselves while being open to the unexpected.”

Sounds like: Chelsea Cutler, Edward + Jane

French Horn Rebellion – Renaissance Man

French Horn Rebellion

Rebellious band geeks, French Horn Rebellion shares new single ‘Renaissance Man’.

A combination of French horn played “really really loud” and laid back groovy beats, these two brothers – aka Brooklyn-based Robert and David Perlick-Molinari – know how to make you dance.

Since its inception, French Horn Rebellion has been an independent project, and the brothers now also co-own their very own label and studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – YouTooCanWoo. The studio has been responsible for producing musical artists such as MGMT and The Knocks, while also creating the audio identities for companies like Spotify, MTV and LOGO.

The track is taken from their ‘Graduation Compilation,’ an album comprised of past hits and new tracks, signaling the end of an era as they launch their new disco/house/dance label imprint, toucan sounds.

Satellite Mode – Kissing In Photographs

Satellite Mode

NYC-based indie outfit Satellite Mode seeks inspiration from afro-disco grooves in ‘Kissing In Photographs’.

Founding members Jessica Carvo and Alex Marko first met in a songwriting session where they quickly found mutual confidence from experimenting with each other’s strengths; Jessica flourished as a powerhouse singer, whereas Alex’s classically trained ear brought structure to the off-kilter soundscapes that the band was creating.

‘Kissing In Photographs’ is laid back but at the same time has an underlying energy that will make you want to get up and dance, pleasantly expecting a big blow out (which comes in at around two minutes).

Aaron Taos by Dave Krugman

Aaron Taos shares ‘Control’, the first single taken from his new project called ‘Birthday Boy’.

The track itself is about the monotony of daily life, think Truman Show. This malaise is reflected in the slurred vocal effect and distant synths.

Jenaux – Give It Up

Jenaux - Give It Up

Jenaux is giving us some serious Duke Dumont vibes with his new single ‘Give It Up’.

Usually one for a remix, the NYC-based producer has turned his tricks to writing solo material. Lead by a strong bassline and funky vocal harmonies, ‘Give It Up’ gives us disco-licking good vibes and proves this is the right direction for Jenaux.

Sounds like: Duke Dumont, Gorillaz, Justice
