Playlist: MIYNT

MIYNT

MIYNT

MIYNT is a Stockholm-based artist and musician. Having listened to a couple of her previous tracks, we decided to get the girl to put together a playlist for us.

You can check it out below.

Leon Bridges – Coming Home 
I was blown away by this song, it has a timeless feel to it.

Touchy Mob – Crooked Lust 
I love the lo-fi feel and the melancholia in this song. It’s brilliant.

Alabama Shakes – I Found You
Brittany Howard must be one of the greatest singers alive. I love this song.

Mild High Club – Windowpane 
Man, I almost wanna steel that synth in the beginning, or in the whole song. It’s an amazing song.

Gorillaz – On Melancholy Hill 
I think that all of my favorite songs includes the chord bm. This one included. It just catches some sort of melancholia. Damon Albarn 4-ever.

Fever Ray – I’m Not Done
I think that this is one of the best electronic songs of this decade.

Buscabulla – Sono
This makes me wanna dance

Valerie June – Wanna Be On Your Mind
This song falls in the same category as the Leon Bridges-track. It just feels timeless. So chill and beautiful.

PJ Harvey – Let England Shake
Because I’m secretly in love with PJ Harvey.

Angel Olsen – Shut Up And Kiss Me.
I just discovered Angel Olsen and I think she is awesome.

You can listen to MIYNT’s new single, ‘You Were Never Too Much’, below.

Transviolet – Girls Your Age

Transviolet

Transviolet

Los Angeles quartet Transviolet have just revealed their debut track, ‘Girls Your Age’.

Distinctive vocals sat atop imaginative production, the track unfurls from the outset to create a stunning opening gambit.

Speaking on the track, the band state:

“It’s complicated- coming into your own. Especially for girls. The world wants you to fit a role- be smart OR be sexy OR be modest- they want you to fit into some tidy, little, one-size-fits-all box. The truth is, you are human, and you aren’t meant to be just one thing. You can be innocent, sexy, elegant, dirty, beautiful, and flawed all in the same instance, and you don’t have to let anyone flatten you out into some one dimensional caricature of yourself. Fuck that. You are multidimensional, and you are capable of being everything at once.”

Sounds like: Lorde, Chelsea Lankes, Dominique, Lana Del Rey, B.Miles, Zola Blood

Zola Blood – Grace

Zola Blood

Zola Blood

Zola Blood is the latest signing to Pond Life Songs, the label synonymous with Talk Talk’s 1991 album ‘Laughing Stock’ and more recently Liverpool’s avant-pop trio Ninetails. Despite a 22-year hiatus, Pond Life’s passion for bold, inventive new music remains strong, as proved by their newest signing.

First track ‘Grace’ combines R&B with ambient electronica and haunting vocals similar to the that of Foals’ Yannis Philippakis.

Zola Blood’s intricate arrangements were developed over a year on a Hackney Wick industrial estate, dissecting mobile phone recordings and programming synthesisers.

Despite the allure, Zola Blood is a competent group with a bright future ahead.

Sounds like: The Foals, Portishead, Talk Talk, Ninetails, Elbow, New Navy, Mogwai, SOHN, James Blake
