Years & Years showing off their skill yet again, this time taking on Blu Cantrell and Sean Paul’s “Breathe”. Olly Alexander’s vocals are on a full display in this R&B jam turned indie-pop gem. Take a listen and jump on board the Years & Years train.
Shura may have just become my favorite new act. “Touch” was excellent. “Just Once” might be better. This latest cut is an airy, love-ish track about forgetting the stresses of an unhealthy relationship/situation and the desire to let go for one night, find someone without attachments, and you know — use your imagination. That being said, this song isn’t the least bit sleazy. With a unique blend of 80s and 90s R&B/Pop, delicate vocals, and cleverly put-together synths,”Just Once” (and Shura’s music in general) are in a word, charming.
‘Have you ever been lost? We can get lost. I want to get lost’ — easily my fave part. smooooth.
Banks. Too many good songs to remember at this point. Add another to the list with “Beggin For Thread”. A bit more upbeat than most of her best-known stuff, but infectious as ever. Listen to the latest from the LA future star.
We were treated to a Cyril Hahn remix just a few days ago and now he’s back with a brand new electro-R&B single. Featuring silky vocals from Rochelle Jordan, “Slow” is a smooth, sensual cut reminiscent of late 90s R&B (Brandy keeps coming to mind). Check it out.
So happy to have some fresh Lemaitre. Here’s a funky cut from their latest EP, Singularity. Listen to “Wait” and get a copy of Singularity over on iTunes.
La Blogothèque does it again. Watch ALB perform their charming hit, “Whispers Under The Moonlight” at night in the empty Stade de Reims.
TOKiMONSTA releases a killer new single with Anderson Paak. “Realla” is the first single off of TOKi’s upcoming album, Desiderium. Get a copy for free (or for whatever price you want to pay for it) here. Think Drake meets the Weeknd meets an awesome TOKiMONSTA beat.
New music from New York singer VÉRITÉ. Open, honest, and fresh, “Strange Enough” is a great piece of electronic-pop. A bit of BROODS, a bit of Tove Lo, a bit of Banks. All good.
