Martin Luke Brown – Opalite

Martin Luke Brown by Bjorn Franklin

Londoner Martin Luke Brown has seemingly come out of nowhere with a banger of a indie pop track called ‘Opalite’ and he means business!

Speaking of the song, MLB says,

“Opalite as a song began with this hypnotic little drum loop and the words just came out. I write placeholder lyrics all the time and then chip away at them until they’re complete but I pretty much stuck with what rolled on Opalite. It just felt right. It’s about finding hope in something and not wanting to let itgo. Whether you find that hope in superstition or religion or love. Whatever really.”

MLB plays London’s Servant Jazz Quarters tonight and ‘Opalite’ is out now via LAB Records.

Sounds like: Bon Iver, Will Joseph Cook, Dua Lipa, Kyko, Sody, Dan Croll

Autumn in June – Hey Arnold Premiere!

Autumn in June

Autumn in June is an indie-electronic artist from South Central LA- yes, Indie Electronic music from the hood! Saying he simply wanted to make a song that people could dance to, here at Indietronica we are very pleased to bring you a first listen with the exclusive premiere of ‘Hey Arnold’, which shows off Autumn in June’s fun side with hunts of funk and disco smothered in lovely synth. Inspired by an episode of the cult-famous ‘90s cartoon, Hey Arnold!, in which the main character was having girl problems, Autumn in June focused this single on lady troubles of his own. Turn on the jam and get ready to dance.

The sounds coming from Autumn in June’s backyard studio are in sharp contrast to the music you will hear palpitating from car speakers on the street outside. Hip-Hop reverberates through his South Central neighborhood like the repetitive DVD menu that plays after one has fallen asleep, monotonous and continuous. Taking a chance and breaking from the confines of a rap saturated environment, Autumn In June began creating an innovative fusion of pulsating rhythms and vocals reminiscent of British trip hop. This was an unexpected occurrence in one of LA’s most ghettoized communities, and quickly resulted in him adopting a name to reflect his misplacement in this world, Autumn In June. Growing up on the streets of South Central, Autumn In June’s childhood was saturated by violence, gang culture and a community revere for gangster rap. However, he saw limitations in the genre that dominated his neighborhood and, ultimately, began to experiment with new styles inspired by Daft Punk, XX and British artist, Plan B.

Lust for Youth – Running

310314_LFY_04_0029

Lust For Youth are a trio from Copenhagen, Denmark, who make edgy synthy, 90s indie-infused disco pop. They have just revealed their new video ‘Running’ alongside the announcement of a European tour this autumn. ‘Running’ is a standout track from their recently released album ‘International‘ via Sacred Bones earlier this year.

‘International’ as a concept dealt with themes of travelling & touring, and the ‘Running’ video features footage from the band on the road in Tokyo. It was directed by members Hannes Norrvide, Loke Rahbek & Malthe Fischer, and it explores the bright lights of life on the road with a bird’s eye perspective of self-shot footage from the band featuring cameos from PharmakonDirty Beaches.
