Hype Machine beauty and bedroom producer Dominique shares ‘Use Me’.
The track has an empowering feel to it, but do not be deceived, as it’s actually one of the saddest, more intro-reflective songs Dominique has written to date, about “being so hopelessly in love with someone that you’d do anything and everything just to be around them.”

Meet Australia’s finest new musical export, Tigertown.
Tigertown’s new track ‘Warriors’ manages to reach new euphoric heights. Much like glitter itself, it brightens up and idealises the concept of love, but who cares as everyone loves glitter and love, right?!
The track is out today on Neon Gold and they will be touring with Tove Lo in July and VÉRITÉ in August and September.
Sounds like: Of Monsters and Men, Passion Pit, The Naked and Famous, Tove Lo, St. Lucia, Crystal Fighters
New York sibling duo Paperwhite return with dream pop number, ‘Only Us’.
It once again showcases their ability to put together a track full of catchy hooks, transcendent synths and soaring, spirited melodies.
“Whether it’s a global issue or a broken heart, we tend to look back with nostalgia on times that were simpler,” says the band about the song. “With change comes courage, so even with heavy lyrics, we wanted to add a little Paperwhite electricity into the mix. What better way to move forward than with a little spring in your step.”
The track is the third release off their forthcoming third EP.
The new single switches it up between chilled jazz and charismatic pop sounds, with an all important message from ZAE,
“‘Faking Love’ is about coming to terms with who you are and learning to embrace your true self. I wanted the song to highlight the importance of breaking through traditional, right wing ‘society norms’ in order to get to a place where you feel comfortable in your own skin. To be able to love fully and openly without fear.”
Sounds like: VÉRITÉ, Banks, SZA, July Child, Låpsley, Liv Dawson, Caswell, Jorja Smith
Los Angeles-based producer, writer, vocalist Elohim is used to making a statement, and so when we heard that her new single ‘Skinny Legs’ is a five minute electronic journey, we weren’t at all surprised.
The song pushes an intentional, techno beat and directional vocals that immediately permeate your brainwaves.
Sounds like: Chvrches, OH Wonder, The Big Pink, Passion Pit, VÉRITÉ, Evvy
Violet Days is the project of Swedish singer/songwriter, Lina Hansson.
Asking whether you ‘Suck At Love’ is always going to be tricky to answer, but it’s also highly relatable to the majority of listeners. Luckily for us, Kris Eriksson (The Chainsmokers) is on production duties, helping Violet Days create an anthemic electronic song that almost makes us forget the initial question.
Violet Days will be playing the Ja Ja Ja club night at The Lexington in London on 23 February.
The Agostina Gálvez-directed video for ‘Keep Running’ by the Brooklyn based songstress oozes sex appeal and instantly takes us back to that Flake advert from the 80’s, but this time it’s a mic and not a chocolate bar.
Tei Shi’s debut album, ‘Crawl Space’, is out 31 March on Downtown/Interscope Records.
