LOVING this new one from holywater and Cruel Youth, the musical duo of Teddy Sinclair and husband & artist/producer Willy Moon. The irresistible new single features whimsical lyrics from Sinclair, who previously worked on Madonna’s album Rebel Heart and co-wrote Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better. Spotify here.
Alexander Lewis & Brasstracks teamed up for a dope rendition of Kanye West’s 2010 hit “All of the Lights” and it’s got the makings of a fan-favorite. “I felt like ‘All of the Lights’ was perfect for a brass cover,” Lewis said in reference to his newest collaboration. “One day, I had a couple hours to spare so I recorded that main motif idea and did some production/structure to begin the tune, sent it to Ivan [of Brasstracks] and asked him if he was down. He literally sent me the trumpets the next day.” Dig in and enjoy!
Hesitated from categorizing this EP as EDM but I don’t think that takes away from how fun it is. As much as there needs to be a healthy dose of weird, avant-garde music to feed the masses, duos like CHIMES are making good ol’ dance music with great success. Their five-track Ninety Four EP is sure to be a welcome addition to your easy listening or pre-game. Check it out below or on Spotify here.
Siobhan Sainte might not be a household name just yet but this is a name you should familiarize yourself with. With a vocal tone and texture that producers will likely salivate over, Sainte flexes her chords with a new single in “Burn It Down.” The smooth, sultry nature of the release speaks volumes of her dexterity and complexity as a writer/artist and I can’t wait to hear more.
Pretty awesome work from Tibetan brother duo, Indiginis, as they put their spin on The M Machine‘s “We Had It All.” They’ve already remixed the likes of Miike Snow, Lemaitre, and more, showing that their style and capabilities aren’t limited in the least bit. Here’s what they had to say about it: “It was after The M Machine performed in our hometown that we got to hang with Eric and Swardy. We immediately connected, became good friends and kept in contact. Getting the opportunity to remix their music off their debut album was a tremendous honor for us. Personally, it felt full circle going from hanging their signed poster in our studio to sharing music with the guys. This is one of our most energetic remixes where we took their eclectic original track and incorporated a lot of our R&B and Hip-hop influences to give it a fresh spin.”
Indie-pop has a new emerging supergroup and they’re turning heads with their new release in “Gunshot.” In a day and age where artists are embracing their career prospects as indie artists more than ever, Toronto-based artists BLAJK are staking their claim as bonafide artists to watch. Frontman Jordan Radics’ vocal prowess is quite impressive, so much so that the quartet’s music has been featured on the coveted Spotify New Music Friday playlist and reached the upper echelons of the Hype Machine charts.
