NYC synth-rockers, VHS Collection, return with ‘The Black’.
Channelling some Chris Isaak vibes (possibly as a result of only using analogue gear during the track’s recording), the light electronic floor filler is paradoxically about the darkest and ugliest emotions you suffer during a breakup.
It’s taken off their ‘Stereo Hype’ EP.
Sounds like: The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Savoir Adore, Bloc Party, Brandon Flowers, Future Islands, The Bravery, MOTHXR, Empire Of The Sun
Savoir Adore is a project led by songwriter/vocalist Paul Hammer.
‘Paradise Gold’ is the lead track from the upcoming album, ‘The Love That Remains’. It’s a ambitious track that tackles themes of love, loss and often-inescapable darkness, despite its danceable attributes and high-flying harmonies.
‘The Love That Remains’ is out on 12 August.
Sounds like: Mirror Talk, VHS Collection, French Horn Rebellion, St. Lucia, Youngblood Hawke
Los Angeles-based music collaborative of Court Alexander, Steven Lopez, Sean Krell and Dave Lewis is the electronic band called Mirror Talk.
Mirror Talk combines new wave with R&B influences in ‘Some Boys’; a synth-heavy power ballad that sounds like something straight off the radio in 1984. Between frontman Court Alexander’s soulful vocals and the A-plus melodic hook, this is one catchy track!
‘Some Boys’ will appear on the band’s upcoming EP ‘1997’, out on 19 May via Yellow Year Records. Pre-order the EP on iTunes.
Sounds like: Scissor Sisters, Monarchy, St. Lucia, Royal Tongues, Savoir Adore
