Find out what new sounds have been tickling our ears over the last 7 days!
Ella Vos – ‘Little Brother’
Ella Vos’ debut single ‘White Noise’ topped both the Spotify Viral chart and the Hype Machine, so the expectation placed upon her second single was always going to be big. Luckily ‘Little Brother’ is 3 and a half minutes of utterly gorgeous sparse yet playful, infectious pop, and Ella is as good as ever.
Liv Dawson – ‘Open Your Eyes’
18-year-old singer songwriter / emerging pop princess Liv Dawson is probably used to making a splash online with three buzz-worthy tracks already under her belt in the past six months. Nevertheless, she’s returned to do so once again with new single ‘Open Your Eyes’, which also comes with the announcement of her debut EP of the same name. Signed to Method Records (Disclosure’s label imprint), the starlet has a bright future ahead indeed.
Day Wave – ‘Wasting Time’
Day Wave are an Oakland-based group led by Jackson Phillips, and they make dreamy, melodic, gorgeous, bliss-filled music. Case in point: new single ‘Wasting Time’. It sounds delicious and a bit sad and is utterly addictive.
Black Saint – Could You Love Me?
The debut track from a collective coming out of London who are enigmatic as they are cool. All we know so far is their debut track ‘Could You Love Me’ has been doing the rounds throughout the blogosphere and 2017 is theirs for the taking. This incredibly beautiful video was directed by Rudimental collaborator Josh Cole and is the first music visual he has put his name too in quite some time. We love it and the single is already making us wish it was festival season all over again.
Dorine Levy – Crazier
Canadian-born and raised in Israel, singer/songwriter and producer Dorine Levy first broke into tastemaker consciousness in 2013 with her debut release “Lenyrose” – her intelligent, strikingly melodic take on indie pop is set to cement Dorine as a definite one to watch for the coming year. Recalling the likes of Jonsi and Sia for the kind of elaborate, delicate soundscapes she’s creating, this is a technical musical talent wrapped in an indie pop mode. Get ready for more plaudits.
Delaire – Healing In Love
Here we have the perfect emotive and soulful dark pop song, as Delaire’s personality unravels in her storytelling. A single that shines through as equally in the production as it does the lyrics. A subdued concoction of delicate synth textures and retro drum machines, the songstress delivers a powerful and immersive performance in ‘Healing in Love’”.
Ariana and the Rose – Supercool
It really is no secret that we love Ariana and the Rose and have been championing them for a while. Launching with an incredible remix courtesy of Toyboy & Robin, this week saw the unveiling of the official video for the latest single ‘Supercool’, which features all-female skating troupe, The Moxi Girls. Watch them whizz through New York City after dark, taking in Chinatown and Times Square before ending the night on a Subway ride home. Aside from the amazing visuals, WHAT A SONG!
