Gallant - Open Up

Day 212 Gallant – Open Up

Although he’s been releasing music for almost a couple of years now, LA-based musician Gallant has only just won my attention with his spectacular new single Open Up. Showing off his effortlessly incredible falsetto, Open Up is a vocal performance that would rival the greats for pure passion, style and exceptional substance. Although it’s tough to see beyond his vocals,…

Priest - Broken

Day 211 Priest – Broken

It has been almost two years since I first and last posted Florida-based duo Priest (formerly X Priest X) on this blog, but today they deservedly return with their phenomenally catchy new single Broken. Reminding me of a female fronted Swim Deep, Broken is a lively, 80’s inspired pop gem that’s beautiful soaring vocals and blissful, hazy synths really…

Halflife - RIP ME ft Aruba Red

Day 210 Halflife – RIP ME ft. Aruba Red

A collaborative project between dubstep producer Distance and Croydon MC Riz Ahmed, Halflife’s new single RIP ME featuring Aruba Red is a dramatic, tense and majestically intoxicating listen. With a belly full of fire, RIP ME’s poignant electronics and venomous, poetic angst has left me wanting to hear much more. For now though, check out the track below. Not available to download…

Ghost Loft - Be Easy

Day 209 Ghost Loft – Overflow

After disappearing for almost 18 months following his early musical releases, Ghost Loft aka. Danny Choi has been on a roll since he finally returned in October last year. Latest output Overflow probably stakes a claim for being the most adventurous track of Choi’s to date. Stepping out of the mesmerising, gloomy electronics he’s well know for, Overflow is…

Seafret - Give Me Something

Day 208 Seafret – Atlantis

Needing little to no introduction on this blog at all, the magnificent Seafret have provided us with an impeccable Friday treat in the form of their brand new single Atlantis. Raising the bar once again, Atlantis is a majestic slice of acoustic-pop that has radio potential scrawled all over it. Epic from start to finish, you can pick the…

Set Mo - White Dress

Day 206 Set Mo – White Dress ft. Deutsch Duke

Pretty much guaranteed to be the sound of my summer, Australian duo Set Mo have struck absolute gold with their euphoric new single White Dress featuring Deutsch Duke. Transporting you straight to a beach / club / pool, White Dress is an absorbing house anthem that pleasingly radiates summer-vibes onto the listener from the moment it’s let loose on…

BATTS - Morals

Day 205 BATTS – Morals [Free Download]

A perfect example as to why dark / mellow synth-pop is one of my favourite sub-genres, new artist BATTS’ debut single Morals is a hauntingly powerful statement of intent from the exciting new duo. Making music together, although not necessarily in the same room (Tanya is Australian-based while Alisdair is UK-based), the duo have a natural musical connection.…

I Am Karate - Bloom

Day 204 I Am Karate – Bloom

Quite easily one of the most beautiful songs you’ll hear this week, Bloom by Scandinavian duo I Am Karate is a staggeringly good track. Reminding me of Rae Morris, the duo’s purposeful sound is a finely balanced blend of sparse, twinkling melodies and decisive beats that melt softly into one another’s arms. Accompanying this fine instrumentation, the…
