Playlist: So Below

So Below

We’ve been fans of New Zealand talent, So Below, for a while now.

We wanted to find out what helps So Below write her incredibly reflective, dark electronic pop, so what better way than her expressing it in a playlist?

“In this playlist I feel like a have a memory or feeling associated with each song, they all have a nostalgic quality to them. Like The Dodos track for example makes me think of sitting on my mums roof at her old house in Auckland and drinking beers with my friends in summer. Or the Trentemoller track makes me think of waiting at the bus stop for the bus to go to work and its pouring down with rain. All such great songs!”

Dralms – Shook

Dralms

Dralms

Dralms (a reinvention by Christopher Smith) has a knack of spawning brilliant videos to accompany its music.

Chris has directed video for Dralms’s new track, ‘Shook’. He says of the track, “Shook is that moment when everything changes. Where you hold on to what’s true to you for dear life, or let it all crumble, accept it, pick up the pieces and move on”.

The video is simple and allows the music speak for itself. It has just three features; Chris, a set of flowers, and a lover asleep in bed.

‘Shook’ has been taken from the new album of the same name, which is out on 2 October via Full Time Hobby (UK) / Boompa (North America).

Sounds like: James Blake, Boxed In, Talk Talk, Radiohead, The Antlers, Pink Floyd, Spiritualized
