Delaire – Hey You

Delaire

Delaire

Last time we wrote about Delaire, we declared her as the new face of pop. We haven’t changed our opinion on this, especially after hearing ‘Hey You’ and its sparkling 80’s synths, and playful, yet honest vocals.

Of the track, Delaire says,“I wrote it about the breakdown of ‘can’t live with you, can’t live without you’ relationship. It’s about the feeling of only being complete with that one person by your side.” 

Sounds like: Jessie Ware, Shura, Róisín Murphy, Banks, London Grammar

Delaire – Belief

The new face of pop is Delaire. Quite bold words from us, but when you watch her video for ‘Belief’, you’ll understand why.

The sultry black and white video is quite a fit to Delaire’s hesitant and delicate vocals, and the track’s warped synths and mellow beats.

Have a listen below.

Kaleida – Aliaa

Kaleida

Kaleida

Continuing in their fight for equal rights through their music, Kaleida returns with ‘Aliaa’.

The track is based on the story of the Egyptian feminist and activist Aliaa Elmahdy, who, in 2011, posted a nude self portrait on her blog as a protest against – in her words – “a society of violence, racism, sexism, sexual harassment and hypocrisy”. The post received of 2 million hits within a short period during the Arab Spring and was the subject of intense controversy and criticism. Aliaa faced a backlash of death threats, and escaped both a kidnapping and rape attempt. She was eventually granted political asylum in Sweden.

Kaleida – Ruby

Kaleida

Kaleida

Synthpop duo KALEIDA is the combined talents of London based Christina Wood (vocals,
lyrics) and Cicely Goulder (keys & production, lyrics).

Their music acts as a voice for feminist and political rights.

New track ‘Ruby’ is the perfect showcase for Wood’s rosy and unique vocals, as well as Goulder’s effortless skills on keys. Combined, the girls have created a track worthy of being from the 80s.

KALEIDA will release their debut EP ‘THINK’ on 6 April through LEX Records.

11 April – Birthdays, London – Kaleida EP Launch
12 May – Gorilla, Manchester (Roisin Murphy support)
