Tei Shi is back!

The Agostina Gálvez-directed video for ‘Keep Running’ by the Brooklyn based songstress oozes sex appeal and instantly takes us back to that Flake advert from the 80’s, but this time it’s a mic and not a chocolate bar.

Tei Shi’s debut album, ‘Crawl Space’, is out 31 March on Downtown/Interscope Records.

Geowulf – Don’t Talk About You



Geowulf are an Australian born dream pop duo comprised of Star Kendrick (vocals) and Toma Banjanin (guitar/production), who now reside in London/Berlin.

Following on from their summer hit, the amorous ‘Saltwater’, is the video for ‘Don’t Talk About You’. It was shot in Berlin and watches as the couple explore the city through a hazy filtered lens.

About the track, the duo explain,

“This song went through a geographical & creative metamorphosis over almost two years… We originally wrote it in Copenhagen, demo’ed it in Stockholm and then revisited it recently when Toma & I were both in London. I guess the song speaks for itself but ultimately it falls in the good ol’ “wanting-something-that-ain’t-good-for-you” vein …”

It’s out now on 37 Adventures.

Telepathe – Drown Around Me



Telepathe (aka multi-instrumentalists Busy Gangnes and Melissa Livaudais) have quite a history.

The duo initially started recording music in 2006 by moving to a warehouse in Bushwick and recording their first EP ‘Farewell Forest’. This was followed in 2008 with their debut album ‘Dance Mother’, which they worked on with TV on the Radio‘s Dave Sitek.

They later quit their day jobs and relocated to Los Angeles to record the album in a few short and intense months. “Melissa and I decided to leave NY for a couple of months during the winter to write and record this new album,” Busy explains. “We rented an apartment on Sunset Boulevard. At the time we were reading a lot Science Fiction and researching California cults, which became themes that seeped into our music.”

Watch the effortlessly cool video for ‘Drown Around Me’ below:

The track has been taken from their long-awaited second album ‘Destroyer’. Co-produced with Lewis Pesacov and mixed by Matty Green, the girls have started their own label BZML to release their album on their own terms.
