More Giraffes & Sweater Beats – Playground
Los Angeles-based duo More Giraffes (aka Mark Hadley and Keeley Bumford) team up with Sweater Beats in the Zac Wolf-directed video for ‘Playground’.
In the video, the crew embrace their inner kids and turn a futuristic pop party into one heck of a playground.
The track is taken from their upcoming EP, ‘Bermuda’ – a signature mix-n-match of synths, chill pop tracks, and infectiously catchy and weird vocals.
Sounds like: Charli XCX, Manila Killa
HOAX – Could
HOAX is an indie pop-rock outfit from Queens, New York, comprised of Michael Raj and Frantz Cesar.
With a sound that is familiar to UK-based indie rock from the naughties, their modern vintage vibe captures, in their own words, “the beautiful sound of sadness”.
Listen to ‘Could’, the first single off their debut album, ‘b?’.
Sounds like: Manic Street Preachers, Hers
Emma Elisabeth – Cavalry
Swedish singer/songwriter, Emma Elisabeth gets nerdy in her new single, ‘Cavalry’.
With a classic band set up, the lush unfurling folk track captures stiring indie rock riffs and delicate vocals, all whilst giving a gentle nod to folk-rock kings’n’queens of the 70’s.
Sounds like: Lana Del Rey, Lucy Rose, Laurel, First Aid Kit, Susanne Sundfør, Sunflower Bean, The Japanese House, Jakob Ogawa, Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young
Demetrius – Sacrifice
Reprsenting a new wave of electro-pop music from the tech capital of the world, Berlin-based Demetrius shares his introspective single, ‘Sacrifice’.
A slow burner (like all good tech tracks), ‘Sacrifice’ is a groovy indie dance heartbreak song with hypnotic vocals.
Sounds like: Blood Orange, Suntalk
