German-based Satin Jackets teams up with British singer, David Harks on ‘Northern Lights’.
As with all of Satin Jackets’ music, ‘Northern Lights’ has a distinct cosmic vibe, which is to be expected with the title of the song. Add to the mix, nostalgic vocal tones and reflective melodies, to create a breathtaking listening experience.
It’s out today on Eskimo Recordings.
Sounds like: Empire Of The Sun, Goldroom, RAC, Hot Chip, Cut Copy, Du Tonc, Future Islands, Phoenix
Love songs don’t have to be all about the doom and gloom of a relationship, they can be about the music you adore. Brooklyn locals, Secret Weapons do just this with uplifting new single, ‘Comeback Season’.
The twosome deliver a positive message about overcoming the odds (specifically the struggles they encountered whilst writing their album), which is further highlighted by the delightful addition of a gospel choir!
It’s out now via Epic.
Sounds like: Youngr, The 1975, Lionel Richie, The Levity, The Island Club, Ghost Beach, Backstreet Boys, LANY, Great Good Fine Ok, The Knocks
Swedish born and based producer SQRD shares ‘Together’.
The track contains hypnotising loops of lo-fi electronic textures and minimalistic vocals.
SQRD says of the track, “I’d just moved back to Stockholm from Berlin, the winter nights were dark, cold, lonely, I was missing everyone I’d left behind in Germany and frantically listening to FKA Twigs and Låpsley on repeat. One night I’d just started writing ‘Together’ which turned out to be a song about my fear of losing someone very dear to me.”
It’s out now via Sommarhjärta.
Sounds like: Foals, James Blake, Honne, SBTRKT, RÜFÜS, Joe Goddard, The xx
German duo, Tube & Berger (aka Arndt Roerig and Marko Vidovic) have been producing music for a while now, but it’s only recently that they’ve really sparked our interest. Working hard on evolving their sound from pure club grooves to a more ‘live’ focused indietronica styling, they have quite literally blown us away with their new track, ‘We Are All Stars’.
To help you get used to the transition, the guys have put together a playlist. It fuses indie/electronica/dance into one delicious pot.
GusGus – Crossfade (Maceo Plex Remix)
This has been a huge track in our DJ sets for over 2 years now, we wish we had made it!
Moderat – Running
Big respect to our fellow Germans, Moderat are the best live electronic band in the world right now.
Royksopp – What Else Is There? – Trentemoller Remix
Mid Noughties Electro House classic. Sounding just as epically dark and dangerous today.
Mylo – Destroy Rock n Roll
A track to dance and laugh to at the same time.
RÜFÜS - Innerbloom
Kings of the Electronica new breed smashing it with a chilled masterpiece.
Foals – Late Night – Solomun Remix
Foals are an amazing Indie Rock band and with Solomon on the remix, it was always going to be good…and it is!
The Chemical Brothers – Do it Again
Probably our favourite ever band. We could have chosen loads of their tracks.
SOHN – Conrad
Downtempo brilliance. Spiritual and soulful.
The XX – Crystalised
The perfect mix of chiming guitars, indie vocals and electronic beats sensibilities.
Justice VS Simian – We Are Your Friends
Not sure any rock band has made a better rabble rousing festival anthem in recent times.
Fri 03 Mar – Zero Gravity, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Fri 07 Apr – Hehku, Tampere, Finland
Sat 22 Jul – Open Beatz Festival, Herzogenaurach, Germany
