Born Stranger – Cheating Love (Feat Caitlyn Scarlett)

Born Strangers

Nothing beats a beautiful electro-pop duet.

Caitlyn explains, “The phrase ‘cheating love’ can be perceived as infidelity, but the undertone I wanted to convey was that of cheating love the same way someone might cheat death, a close shave but ultimately avoided.”

The track is co-produced by Yoad Nevo (Sia, Pet Shop Boys, Goldfrapp).

Sounds like: Prinze George, Sia, The Wombats, Bastille, Major Lazer, Years & Years, M83, Foals, KAPTAN, The Brocks, Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode, Myzica

Tradiio Exclusive: Interview with Red Emperor

Red Emperor

Red Emperor

Indietronica was founded in Brighton, so when we discover brilliant new Brighton-based bands, we get very excited.

One of these bands is Red Emperor, who we discovered on Tradiio as last week’s artist of the day. We therefore couldn’t pass on the opportunity of interviewing them…

How did you meet and why did you start making music together?

Charlie: I met Nav and Ollie during school and college respectively, and Ed had been a close childhood friend. Nav and I had discussed starting an original, Indie/Rock band for a while so one day, I got us all to get together for a rehearsal and the rest was history! We all had similar tastes in music and similar ambitions so it felt natural.

Describe your sound in three words.

Sharp. Intimate. Infatuating.

Where do you cite your musical influences from?

Our influences include: Foals, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kasabian, Oasis, Haim, Queens of the Stone Age, The Wombats, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, and Marvin Gaye.

You won a competition to play Blended Festival earlier this year. How did that come about, and what was it like sampling the high life of being a musician?

Yeah crazy story! It wasn’t a competition though. It happened a couple months after releasing our debut EP and music video when out of the blue we received a call from one of the event organisers saying that he had seen the music video for ‘Kink In Your Soul’ on Youtube and wanted us to play at the event! After the initial excitement, we passed it off as too good to be true but next thing we knew flights were booked and we were on our way.

When out there, we were treated like royalty and sharing the stage with the likes of Craig David, Jessie Ware and Kasabian was an absolute honour! We had our own private air conditioned dressing room right next door to Kasabian and hanging out with them was pretty surreal!

It’s definitely been the most exciting show of our careers so far and we can’t wait to see where our music will take us next!

Congrats on being Tradiio’s artist of the day last week. You must be chuffed knowing that so many people have invested in you.

Thanks a lot! Yeah, the amount of support we’ve had through Tradiio is incredibly humbling, not only from the fans and investors, but also the brilliant Tradiio staff too. We’re lucky enough to be heading back to the recording studio on the 12th of November to record a new single and it’s all thanks to Tradiio and those who invested in us. We can’t wait to get some new songs up so we can give something back.

We love new music at Indietronica. What new music are you listening to?

At the moment we are loving the new Foals album but further off the radar, there’s great new music coming from other Brighton bands such as Tigercub, Cessna Deathwish, Fickle Friends and Varjak. Be sure to check them out!

We’ve invested in Red Emperor. Have you? Listen to more of their songs and support them at tradiio.com/red-emperor.

Sundara Karma – Vivienne

Sundara Karma

Sundara Karma

‘Vivienne’ is the first single from Sundara Karma‘s second EP – ‘EP II’.

The track is comprised of big vocals over addictive guitar hooks, which echoes the escapist feel of the track.

Oscar Lulu from the band describes the track:

“It’s a love song sure, but more to do with the escapism that love can offer than love itself. The world is pretty fucked, not that this is a revelation, nor am I saying anything new. I’m just singing about a type of love that blocks out all the noise.”

Their ‘EP II’ is set to be released on 6 November, through Chess Club Records.
