CAPPA – Waste My Time

CAPPA - Waste My Time

CAPPA doesn’t like people wasting her time, and we don’t blame her. There are too many time wasters in this goddamn industry.

But how does CAPPA manage to declare this so elegantly in her new single ‘Waste My Time’? It’s gotta be because of her distinguished soft voice, which we love her for.

Listen below.

It’s out now via Congo Records.

Sounds like: Lorde, Lana Del Rey, HOLYCHILD, Purity Ring, Washed Out, Say Lou Lou, The Knife, M83, KLOE, Druzy, Taylor Swift, The Knife

Mononoke

Mononoke

Meet the fierce and animated, Mononoke; the UK’s very own musical princess.

Mononoke did release a couple of singles eighteen months ago, and although they were both well received by tastemakers and blogs, she decided to take a step back and hone her sound and creative image.

The result is her four track EP, ‘Silence For You’, which is set for release on 15 July.

Listen to the title track below.

Mononoke has also been busy putting together a series of cinema graphs for each track on the EP.

CAPPA – I’m Good

CAPPA

CAPPA

Making her own way in the music business, CAPPA returns with her latest pop number, ‘I’m Good’.

CAPPA says the track is an “expression most of us use a lot without ever really thinking about it. For me, this song is about declaring that you can be so much happier alone than hanging on some random person’s arm. It feels anthemic and empowering to me and I hope it feels the same to listeners!”

Sounds like: Lorde, Lana Del Rey, HOLYCHILD, Purity Ring, Washed Out, Say Lou Lou, The Knife, M83, KLOE, Druzy, Taylor Swift, The Knife

Gundelach – Fjernsynet

Gundelach by Simon Skreddernes

Gundelach by Simon Skredderne

Gundelach returns with his new single ‘Fjernsynet (Norwegian for “television set”), which is poised to lift him to new heights with its cooly delivered falsetto over a driving rhythm, accentuated by beautiful analog-electronic production.

It is a broody, melancholic and catchy slow burner, perfect to listen to when driving late at night.

The ‘Spiders’ EP is co-produced by Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta). It is mixed by Al Carson (Ariel Pink, Tim Hecker).

‘Fjernsynet’ was released on 8 April via Cosmos (Say Lou Lou, Naomi Pilgrim). The EP is available for pre-order here.

Paris Carney – Send A Prayer

Paris Carney

Paris Carney

Los Angeles-based Paris Carney is sending a prayer out to all of those suffering.

The track was written following her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis in early last year, as well Carney’s consideration of how fragile the state of the world currently is.

As with all of Carney’s music, ‘Send A Prayer’ conveys a notable passion through her use of heartfelt lyrics and vocal tone that continues to invite us to join Carney amongst her closest thoughts and feelings.

Proceeds from the single sale will be donated to the American Red Cross and the American Cancer Society. Purchase on iTunes here.

Sounds like: Fiona Apple, Indiana, Banks, Say Lou Lou, Mausi, REMMI, Evvy

CAPPA – Goddess

CAPPA

CAPPA

Still Killin’ It, CAPPA is back with dark synth banger, ‘Goddess’.

We categorise CAPPA as an undiscovered Taylor Swift. Her music style walks a tightrope between cool nonchalance and sizzling summer pop, and pulls out all the stops to make sure it stays rattling around your head for hours after the final beat.

Sounds like: Lorde, Lana Del Rey, HOLYCHILD, Purity Ring, Washed Out, Say Lou Lou, The Knife, M83, KLOE, Druzy, Taylor Swift, The Knife

Gundelach – Spiders

Gundelach

Gundelach

Norwegian, bedroom producer, Kai Gundelach has been sharing his songs under the moniker, Gundelach, since 2014. Prior to then, he used to party at clubs in his teens, and later went onto warming up for some of his teenage DJ heroes.

After supporting Say Lou Lou on their album tour, Gundelach sent some demos to Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta), the two began a collaboration that resulted in him recording his debut EP in New York with Joel and Al Carlson (who has worked with Ariel Pink, amongst others).

His latest gem is ‘Spiders’, which cleverly combines intricate electronics overlaid with wispy vocals and pulsating beats.

Sound like: Bon Iver, Honne, Boxed In, RY X, The Presets

Lucas Nord – Faking

Lucas Nord

Lucas Nord

Sometimes we listen to an artist and automatically assume that he or she is already well known, but it’s not until we look at their social media accounts that we realise the travesty of the situation.

One artist in this boat is Swedish producer and R&B pop artist, Lucas Nord.

Nord has music in his blood; he is the grandchild of legendary Swedish jazz musician, Putte Wickman. A producer, expanding into singing, Nord’s new single, ‘Faking’, details a relationship that is not what Nord thought it was and is his most personal song to date.

Nord has once again managed to successfully combine indietronica-styled vocals with dance-based bass lines; something that we haven’t really seen since the emergence of Disclosure.

He is going to be huge in 2016.

The track is the first song from Nord’s forthcoming mini LP, ‘Company’, due to be released in 2016 through Swedish indie label Cosmos Music (Say Lou Lou, Naomi Pilgrim).

Sounds like: Disclosure, Boxed In, Tove Lo, Years & Years, Banks, Jack Garratt, IYES, Le Youth, Sabella
