Portland-based Leo Islo shares his sparkling new single ‘Retrograde Now’.
Born in Santiago, and spending a lot of his youth travelling, Islo appears to have taken his sense of wanderlust onboard when creating his music, which often explores both club and laid back sounds in a nostalgic manner.
Beautifully produced, the song expresses “what it’s like to love someone even after the realization that you have little in common other than the past you share”.

Australian trio, SAFIA, portray an endless summer with their music and their new single ‘Starlight’ is no exception.
Speaking on the release, SAFIA say,
“At its core ‘Starlight’ is a song about letting go, and the world that it creates is designed to capture that feeling. In retrospect the song also represents an important shift in perspective, both creatively and personally.”
Continuing to push boundaries, the band has also collaborated with VR/AR artist SUTU on animated single artwork that comes to life with the use of the Eyejack app. Download the EyeJack app HERE, tap ‘SAFIA’ and tap ‘Launch AR’ to watch.
Working with the likes of Alison Wonderland and Peking Duk and having reached over millions of streams, it’s about time SAFIA’s music reaches the British shores.
