Girl/boy duo Magdalena Bay create music for long lost loves to listen to on late night drives.
Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin became friends (and lovers) during their time in a prog rock band in high school. Entrance to different colleges led to a trial separation until they reunited and formed Magdalena Bay.
‘Neon’ is a slow wave disco track with breathy vocals. Listen below.
Devastating pop trio, LANY, have cheered us right up with the new video for ‘ILYSB’ (I love you so bad), probably our favourite LANY song to date.
Speaking of the video, lead singer, Paul Klein, says, “I turned ‘ILYSB’ into a tragedy of unhealthy obsession and unrequited love that ultimately led to psychotic behavior and total derailment.” We’ve all been there, Paul.
LANY create new wave electronica with heart melting lyrics and pop riffs, and you can catch them at one of their shows below.

We absolutely love Swedish producer duo, Death In The Afternoon, and they are back with killer new track, ‘Good Enough’.
As with their previous releases, on new track, ‘Good Enough’, DITA have delivered an established sound with romantic, 80’s elements. The press release compares ‘Good Enough to “Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker singing on a track produced by M83“, and that is exactly what we thought upon first listen.
Sounds like: Anteros, M83, Tame Impala, MGMT, Young Galaxy, Summer Heart, Goldroom, Karl Kling, RAC, Washed Out, Day Wave, Saltwater Sun
The Du Tonc boys are back, but with more of a slowed down, dark electronic release than their usual, more upbeat offerings.
The “anti-pop” track, called ‘Slow Down’, features additional backing vocals from Jenny McCullagh of I Know Leopard.
Despite the slight change in direction, Du Tonc are exactly where they want to be, saying;
“We didn’t grow up making music together, we never had that luxury. This is the first song we’ve made where we both feel like everything in it is exactly what we want it to be, this feels like the beginning and it feels amazing.”
“When you gonna slow down?”. It’s a question we should all be asking ourselves.
Sounds like: Kavinsky, ROOSEVELT, Summer Heart, MGMT, Day Wave, Washed Out, Yeasayer, Miike Snow, RAC, Goldroom, Set Mo, Luke Million
