Mint Trip – Virga

Mint Trip

Mint Trip

Mint Trip is a foursome from Miami’s Frost School of Music, who are all about the musical feels.

Comprising of Amy (vocals), Anthony (guitar, synth, drum pads, backup vocals), Brian (bass, mixing), and Max (guitar, synth, drum pads, production), they formed in January 2015 over a love of electronic and non-electronic music, and a mutual interest in pushing the boundaries of pop music.

Their second single, ‘Virga’, is about Amy’s brother, a meteorology major who had to leave Miami after two years and go back to Maryland. He was interested in clouds, and Virga is the type of cloud that forms in vertical streaks under a larger cloud in a rainstorm.

Have a listen below:

‘Virga’ has been taken from their first EP, which is due out this year.

Acre Tarn – Flex

Acre Tarn

Acre Tarn

Acre Tarn is the electronic music project from Anna-Louisa Etherington, a singer/producer originally from the Lake District.

Acre Tarn has a passion for disjointed industrial beats cut into powerful, yet ghostly landscapes and the new track ‘Flex’ is no exception. Combine this with Anna-Louisa’s autumnal and echoey vocals, and you are onto a winner.

It is the first track taken from the forthcoming second EP.

Sounds like: Purity Ring, Chvrches, Keep Shelly in Athens, Kill J, Gems, Wildhart, Grimes, Mons Montis, Kate Bush, Little Dragon, ASTR, Cocteau-Twins, Saycet, St Lo

Acre Tarn – Dawn Faces

Acre Tarn - Dawn Faces

Acre Tarn – Dawn Faces

Acre Tarn is the electronic music project from Anna-Louisa Etherington, a singer/producer originally from the Lake District.

The debut ‘Clasp and Shake EP’ came with a number of video collaborations from Manchester-based video-jam projects that projected colourful and haunting visuals upon the music. Staying true to her roots, Anna’s new track Dawn Faces’ features a children’s choir and a number of samples recorded in a cave not far from the lake from which Acre Tarn takes its name.

As the name suggests, ‘Dawn Faces’ is a multifaceted and haunting affair with astounding impact. The listener is lead on a mountainous journey full of ethereal synths, beats that drive with industrial clatter, and a syrupy bass line into the spaces around a huge attention-grabbing chorus.

Sounds like: Purity Ring, Chvrches, Keep Shelly in Athens, Kill J, Gems, Wildhart, Grimes, Mons Montis, Kate Bush, Little Dragon, ASTR

Wildhart - Stuck In A Second

Wildhart – Stuck In A Second

Not another Swedish band! Well, we can’t help it because they are all so good and Wildhart is a new favourite of ours.

Following on from their Swedish counterparts, Little Dragon, Wildhart’s sound can only be described as energetic pulse beats through an electronic haze of synthesizers.

The single was recorded at Svenska Grammofon Studion by Györguy Barocksai and Henrik Alsér (who has cooperated with Robyn, Kleerup and Alicia Keys).

Sounds like: Little Dragon, Kid Astray, Depeche Mode, Phantogram, Santigold, SBTRKT, CSS, Sirena

Purity Ring – Push Pull

Purity Ring is a Canadian electronic duo who formed in 2010. The band consists of Megan James (vocals) and Corin Roddick (instrumentals).

Along with such musicians as Grimes and Nicholas Jaar, Purity Ring is falling into a new category of music, under the guise of ‘witch house’ and ‘dream pop’.

After a two year break, the duo is back with ‘Push Pull’. As displayed in the video, ‘Push Pull’ is gentle and quixotic.
