JJ - All White Everything

Day 273 JJ – All White Everything

Yesterday, Swedish duo JJ unveiled All White Everything, the first single to be lifted from their upcoming album, ‘V’. A complex listen, All White Everything begins as a hushed, piano ballad, lulling you into a false sense of security, before unexpectedly evolving into an electronic / orchestral epic. Defying logical progressions, this is an intriguing listen. Download Artist – Amazon Itunes

Phoria - Undone

Day 272 Phoria – Undone

Although I may have missed the buzz around their recent single Emanate, I am well and truly on-top of things when it comes to Phoria’s latest effort, Undone. The second single to be released from the Brighton-based outfits upcoming ‘Display’ EP, Undone is a beautifully constructed, ghostly electronic anthem. Flawlessly produced, the detail and precision on this track is mind-blowing. Check it out…

Childhood - Falls Away

Day 271 Childhood – Falls Away

Quite sinfully, it’s been almost a year since I last mentioned Childhood on this blog; so I’m making amends for that right now. Released alongside the promise of a debut album, new single Falls Away is a spacious, adventurous slice of moorish indie-psychadelica. Drenched in reverb, Falls Away glistens from start to finish, soaring effortlessly by in an…

Darlia - Dear Diary

Day 270 Darlia – Dear Diary

Off the back of their recent ‘Candyman’ EP, Darlia return with a new heroic pop-rock juggernaut, Dear Diary. With mouthwatering guitar hooks aplenty, Dear Diary is a brief, 3 minute slice of head-banging escapism, that has has a great American Pie / 90’s American College raucousness to it. Taking no prisoners, Dear Diary goes from nothing to epic chorus in 30…

Meanwhile - Bigger City

Day 269 Meanwhile – Bigger City

One of the more bonkers musical projects out there at the moment is Meanwhile. Signed to Fiction Records, the enigmatic song-writer and producer appears to see music in a different way to most human beings. Rather than following any dull, repetitive musical formula, Meanwhile alternatively thrives on sounding unique, brash and wacky; an unpredictability that makes his party-pop-craziness,…

Little Shoes Big Voice - Nightfall

Day 268 Little Shoes Big Voice – Nightfall

Another musical discovery from the past few weeks is Little Shoes Big Voice. With some healthy backing from Radio 1, the duo comprising of Jack Durtnall and Emily Harvey have very little info about them online, but any band who lists their influencers as London Grammar and Chet Faker clearly have a lot of musical taste…

Midnight - Adonis

Day 267 Midnight – Adonis (Prod. Nick Leng)

Midnight (previously mdnt) released his debut single back in February last year, and astonishingly we haven’t heard a peep from him in the 15 months between now and then. Returning with the Nick Leng produced Adonis, his second single is a smooth, soulful R&B jam that reminds me of the rather wonderful Jesse Boykins III. Probably most accurately…

Ivy And Gold - Not Had Enough

Day 265 Ivy & Gold – Not Had Enough

Self-confessed Bombay Bicycle Club super fans Ivy And Gold are quite possibly one of my favourite music discoveries of the year. The male/female electronic duo from London sound like most of my favourite artists right now, all bottled-up into one quite bold and brilliant musical project. Feeding this sudden obsession is Not Had Enough, the…

Jungle - Time

Day 264 Jungle – Time

You know the drill. When Jungle release new music it’s big news, and I hasten to say that their latest single Time, is no different. Spending a minute or two mulling over Jungle’s rapid rise in popularity, I can only conclude they are so popular because quite admirably, they’re making music like no-one else out there at the moment.…
