Phantom Runners – First Time

Phantom Runners

Phantom Runners

Phantom Runners is the moniker of pop producer ADAL (aka Adam Al-Hilali).

Forged through a love of R&B, pop and 80’s music, Phantom Runners are embarking on a journey of collaboration. Working on an album featuring several vocalists, the initial track is the aptly named ‘First Time’, featuring Brooke Bailey.

“‘First Time’ is a track about chasing that first feeling you get with someone, that initial rush,” explains ADAL.

Co-produced by John Beck (Izzy Bizu, Delilah, Corinne Bailey Rae), ‘First Time’ is three minutes of scintillating 80’s nostalgia over fresh electronic beats, boasting retro synths eloquently blended with sun-splashed soulful vocals.

CHLØË BLACK – Groupie

CHLØË BLACK

CHLØË BLACK

Ever the rebel, Chløë Black returns with her new track called ‘Groupie’.

It’s part homage to the original groupies of the 1970’s like Pamela Des Barres and Cynthia Plaster Caster and an anti slut-shaming, feminist anthem.

Chløë was inspired by her own experiences of the sunset strip rock scene, Frank Zappa’s Laurel Canyon, Terry Reid’s 1970 documentary about Groupies and Kenneth Anger’s ‘Scorpio Rising’;

“In some cases these groupies have become even more legendary than a lot of the men they worshipped and have become poster girls for rebellion and sexual liberation.”

Grimes – Flesh without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream

Grimes

Grimes

Montreal experimental-electronic artist Clair Boucher aka Grimes has been had a very natural progression of producing great music and ascension through time, with her fourth album ‘Art Angels’ due out in November.

The self-directed video for ‘Flesh without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream’ follows a lost angel. The first act is a quirky and colourful portrayal of pop, and boasts everything we love about Grimes. The second act is still pretty macabre, but is more of a view into the softer side of Grimes, showcasing her high calibre vocals.

It is taken from her forthcoming album ‘Art Angels,’ which is out digitally 6 November on 4AD. Pre-order on iTunes.

Priest – Broken

Priest - Broken

Priest – Broken

It’s been a while since we wrote about some synth pop, but it’s spring time, so why not!

Florida-based synth pop duo Priest (formerly X priest X) have released brand new track ‘Broken’.

It’s modern pop that glides subtly between 80s lo-fi pop and sharply syncopated rhythms that fit like a glove for a John Hughes film soundtrack.

It is second single from their forthcoming debut album ‘Priest’, which is to be released on 5 May via Swedish label Emotion.

CHLØË BLACK

CHLØË BLACK

Gothic soulstress CHLØË BLACK is back with stunning track, ‘Cruel Intentions’.

It’s an epic follow up from ‘27 Club‘, which was a little more bittersweet that ‘Cruel Intentions’. However, ‘Cruel Intentions’ is still about loss. The track is about cult classic ‘Killing Zoe’ and beseeches attention as CHLØË’s smokey voice surrounds your eardrums.
