Mansionair - Seasons (Waiting On You)

Day 153 Mansionair – Seasons (Waiting On You) [Future Islands Cover]

I love Australian radio station Triple J’s ‘Like A Version’ sessions. Somewhere deep down their honesty and majesty eclipses Radio 1’s ‘Live Lounge’ concept almost every time. Covering Future Islands’ Seasons (Waiting On You), the hotly tipped Mansionair have sustained this legacy perfectly. Chilling the original out beyond easy recognition, the trio’s intense, icy electronic touch is enough…

GRRL PAL - Dare

Day 152 GRRL PAL – Dare

Perhaps inspired by the fantastic Oh Wonder, Perth-based boy-girl electronic duo GRRL PAL will be releasing a new single every month throughout the entire of 2015. Starting with a bang, the journey’s first stop is the quirky, bubblegum pop inspired Dare. Reminding me of an Australian Purity Ring, GRRL PAL are definitely one to keep a keen eye…

Monogem - The Glow

Day 151 Monogem – The Glow

LA-based duo Monogem danced onto my radar this week with a fresh, buoyant new version of their 2013 demo The Glow. With a cheeky, care-free melodious bounce, the track’s simplistic wandering synths and adventurous percussion are perfectly matched by vocalist Jen Hirsh’s soft pop-infused pipes. With a debut EP from the duo expected next month, I can’t wait to…

Arctic Lake - Limits

Day 150 Arctic Lake – Limits

Stunning, sumptuous, soft and serene are just a handful of the words that come to mind when I think about Arctic Lake’s music. The London based three piece started to turn heads at the end of last year, but latest single Limits has broken further barriers and deservedly so. Reminiscent of their band name, Limits is a slow, icy ballad…

FMLYBND - Letting Go

Day 149 FMLYBND – Letting Go [Free Download]

It’s been way over a year since I last heard a peep from Santa Barbara four-piece FMLYBND, so I’m thrilled to see them back on my radar with their magnificent new single Letting Go. Probably best described as an indie-inspired floor-filler, Letting Go is an adrenaline packed electronic anthem of the highest order. Not only is it intense, adventurous and…

Good Love - Alone

Day 148 Good Love – Alone

Previously recording music under the moniker PATRÌCE, Good Love has knocked me for six with his futuristic new single Alone. A weird and wonderful blend of electronic and R&B vibes, Alone is a minefield of complex rhythms, textures and sounds, drawn together by Good Love’s dramatic and quintessentially unique vocals. Expect a new EP from the London-based musician soon. Not…

JOY. - Weather

Day 147 JOY. – Weather

I first came across 17 year old musician JOY. a few months back after she sang on Peking Duk’s incredible Like A Version Session for Triple J Radio in her home nation of Australia. At the time I was impressed by her confidence and tender vocals, and now I’m happy to report that her solo…

Lucy Mason - All You Want (Demo)

Day 146 Lucy Mason – All You Want (Demo)

Teasing my soft spot for talented upcoming female singer-songwriters, Lucy Mason is a beautiful new shining light in this ever competitive category. Her new single All You Want is a demo of the finest order, begging the question, if this is the stripped back, almost incomplete version, how great will the finished product be? My guess is…

Rae Morris - Love Again

Day 144 Rae Morris – Love Again

Less than one week away from the release of her debut album ‘Unguarded’, the sublime Rae Morris has unveiled yet another LP treat in the shape of Love Again, a blustery, driving pop song of the highest order. Full of confidence, joy and passion, Love Again is a mesmerizing example of how far Rae has come over the past 12…
