Kid Astray – Fall To My Knees

Kid Astray

We are super excited that Kid Astray are back, and their defiant new track does not disappoint.

An collective of musical instruments and instantly memorable vocal hooks, ‘Fall To My Knees’ is about why Kid Astray are sharing their music;

“Fall to My Knees” is about a gig we played in Berlin in the spring of 2015. We were having a really tough time, battling some undue negativity in the media and in the people around us. We just wanted to quit, go to sleep, and not play this showcase at a club. But that show just blew up and made us remember why in the world we’re so determined to keep on doing this. It’s pretty big for a couple of 20 year olds to able to play a sold-out show in the hipster capitol of Europe. And this song is a reminder of that.”

It’s out now via Sony Music.

Sounds like: Smallpools, Passion Pit, Pistol Shrimp, M83, Holy Ghost!, Two Door Cinema Club, Young Kato, Ballet School

MATTIS – Loverboy

MATTIS

Copenhagen-based superstar in the making, MATTIS, shares his stunning debut, ‘Loverboy’.

This self confessed “viking soul” uses somewhat minimalistic production, relying heavily on his vocals (think James Blake or Sampha), but ‘Loverboy’ also tells an emotive story, driven from a dark place that MATTIS found himself in three years ago, having lost his apartment following a break up, and generally feeling like a lone wolf away from the pack.

​The single is out via Sony Music in Scandinavia and Tigerspring/The Orchard elsewhere.

Sounds like: Rationale, Ben Pearce, James Blake, Sampha

Rob Bravery – You Take Half

What’s half of nothing? Well, “nothing” you might answer, but that isn’t strictly true with our next act, Rob Bravery, who is altering perspectives on ‘You Take Half’.

Idiosyncratic in nature, and already drawing comparisons to Porishead and Massive Attack, the video for ‘You Take Half’ follows Rob as he battles with the desire to succeed without compromising in some form or another.

Warning. The scenes in the video will be very familiar to those who have witnessed, or been party to, a disintegration of some sort.

‘You Take Half’ is the lead track from his upcoming EP, out on 2 September via Insanity / Sony Music an available for pre-order on iTunes here.

Rob has worked with Sneaker Pimps‘, Liam Howe (FKA Twigs, Lana Del Rey) on the EP.

Sounds like: Portishead, Radiohead, Massive Attack

Having already done remixes for the likes of and Tove Lo, ‘Stardust’ is his new single. A trip-hop, jazz-funk-infused cut that uses strings, lazy piano and shuffling percussion to exquisite effect, the track is beautifully elevated by WDL’s collaboration with Swedish vocalist, lyricist and songwriter Elliphant.

Tove Styrke – Borderline

Tove Styrke - Borderline

Tove Styrke – Borderline

Tove Anna Linnéa Östman Styrke (aka Tove Styrke) is a Swedish singer and songwriter. She finished third on Swedish Idol 2009, but her latest track ‘Borderline’ is a production far from the cries of a ready-made reality TV show pop princess.

The reggae inspired track is full of tropical vibes, dancehall undertones and those lyrics…we wonder if they are a slight dig at the reality TV show industry?

‘Borderline’ was written by Tove Styrke and Janne Kask, and produced by Johan T Karlsson (Familjen).

The ‘Borderline’ EP is set for release on 23 November via Sony Sweden (and via RCA in the UK).

Sounds like: M.I.A, Santigold, Tove Lo, Lykke Li, Elliphant

Le Youth – Feel Your Love (Feat. Javeon) (RAC remix)

Le Youth - Feel Your Love Feat. Javeon (RAC remix)

Le Youth – Feel Your Love Feat. Javeon (RAC remix)

Le Youth is back, this time with Javeon in tow and complete with a remix courtesy of RAC.

Javeon’s voice remains intact on ‘Feel Your Love’, but RAC breathes some summertime vibes into what is already a sterdy 90’s inspired R&B based track by the L.A. producer.

We were initially concerned that Le Youth may have pigeoned himself into a genre that will soon pass in popularity, but having watched him play last week we are certain that the talented producer is here to stay.

Pre order the original on iTunes.

Sounds like: Javeon, RAC, Disclosure, Lane 8, Ben Pearce, Ben Khan, Duke Dumont, Foxes
