Make Friends – Drop Naked
Bristol-based four-piece Make Friends are set to send tingles down your ears.
Lead by emotional stories, the subject matter of their debut single, ‘Drop Naked’ may be dark, but the complex grooves and stretched indie-pop chords suggests otherwise.
Expect their EP in spring.
Sounds like: Bombay Bicycle Club, Foals, Sea Girls, Ten Fé, Suzi Island, Everything Everything
TENDER – Slow Love
We are super excited about TENDER‘s new single, ‘Slow Love’, taken from their album ‘Fear Of Falling Asleep’, out via Partisan Records.
Much like TENDER’s other offerings, ‘Slow Love’ has a delightful bassline throughout with soulful vocals, inspired by the moments that come just before sleep when silence descends, and doubt and fear and desire take over.
Sounds like: MOTHXR, Jungle, Glass Animals, HUNTAR, Caribou, Air, The National, Tame Impala, Boxed In, Honne, Colouring
Satin Jackets ft. Panama – Automatic
We are huge fans of Germany’s finest disco kid, Satin Jackets (aka Tim Bernhardt) and Sydney-based singer/songwriter, Panama. Their new collab is a dreamy leftfield pop at its best.
Expect the second Satin Jackets’ album, ‘Solar Nights’, on April 26 via Eskimo Recordings.
Sounds like: Goldroom, Du Tonc, Honne, MOTHXR
Joe Slater – Nothing Ever Seems to Change
Liverpool-based singer/songwriter Joe Slater shares his new single, ‘Nothing Ever Seems to Change’.
With an underlying hint of country, pop, folk, blues and soul, Joe writes music that is highly emotive and personal.
Joe plays Green Note, London on Thursday.
Sounds like: James Bay, Bob Dylan, Harry Styles
CUT_ – Fever Feat. Klangstof
Sultry artist CUT_ combines forces with Klangstof to create a captivating atmosphere where there is but one message: Sex.
‘Fever’, a minimalistic song, is soft yet sensual which ultimate leads to a burning tension between the two vocals with the addition of lush reverbs and slow moving synths.
Sounds like: James Blake, Kllo, Massive Attack, Phantogram, Kito, Broods
