Fyfe – Belong (Feat. Kimbra)

FYFE

Fyfe is the musical project of Paul Dixon, and he returns with a seriously strong new track called ‘Belong’, featuring Kimbra.

It is the first single taken off Fyfe’s second album ‘The Space Between’, which is released on 9 June. The concept behind the album is it begins in a hospital ward and ends at a funeral home.

‘Belong’ was written following Paul’s experience with the separate and sudden deaths of two young friends, then his grandmother passing away, and very quickly a family friend, but also him becoming an uncle three times.

Fyfe describes ‘Belong’ as,

“the desire to find purpose in a transient life. A relationship can be helpful or a hinderance in terms of understanding who you are and ‘Belong’ is documenting someone starting to pose those questions, rather than providing the answers…Kimbra is a real creative force. Our voices are presenting the same narrative rather than a conversation between two members of a relationship.”

Fyfe will be playing a headline show at London’s Omeara on 4 May.

Sounds like: RALPH, Miike Snow, Boxed In, James Blake, Childish Gambino, SOHN, The XX, Ellie Goulding, Bombay Bicycle Club, Death Cab For Cutie, London Grammar, Foals

Mere Child – Joy Of Joy

Mere Child

Mere Child

We always love discovering great artists from our home town, and Mere Child (aka Aimee Herbert-Smith) is exactly that.

Fuelling our emotional engines, her second solo release, ‘Joy Of Joy’ is a melancholic disco track born as a result of a three year break by Aimee that was filled with “marriage, birth and tragic loss”.

RALPH – Something More

RALPH

RALPH

80’s music lover, RALPH, is questioning whether there is ‘Something More’ in her new track, asking whether the grass is always greener?

“‘Something More’ was inspired by Aziz Ansari’s Netflix show ‘Master of None’,” explains RALPH, continuing “The show honestly narrates the existential issues faced by young adults now. Consumed with social media and dating apps, we’re obsessed with the idea of something more or someone better, often leading us to sabotage the good things we have.”
