Navina – Circles

Feb 22 2019

Following the success of her feel-good clappy single “27 Hearts”, indie singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Navina brings you a more mellow, deep-cut written on the guitar to serenade you in those more reflective chilled moments. She says “I produced this song (as always) myself in my bedroom, it was at a time of having graduated last year from uni and having a feeling of starting all over again from scratch. Circles is about how sometimes starting back where you finished isn’t always a bad thing, going to back to square one enables us to build a foundation and rediscover our roots and what started it all. It’s also about how life is oddly circular at times, and how whilst we are on this journey, it’s important to choose the things we can which will in the long term give us most peace. I wanted to convey a sense of reflective journeying in the production, reflecting most of the times when I think, write and dream which is often on a bus/train. Starting again isn’t a bad, it enables us to rediscover what started it all in the beginning.”

The quickly rising duo Black Match have continued to make their statement as being pioneers of Dream Folk with their latest release ‘Poison & Wine’. To me, the two showcase top notch songwriting, as if James Blake and Adelle had babies. Their new single is filled with spacious emotion and atmospheric bliss.

Irish artist Ryan Vail released his debut album last year and his exquisite blend of electronica, classical and folk music has been met with critical acclaim. Here’s the visuals for his latest single “Shadows” which is released on September 29th via Quiet Arch.

“The song deals with my initial personal struggle to become a full-time artist. While I was before in a job that was comfortable, music haunted me at every turn. I’d kept my passion subdued as I was led to believe that its currently impossible to survive as a full-time musician nowadays. The lyrics refer to music as a person. “My love cuts like a knife” refers to the fact that it hurt not to be able to follow my love for music. “Your heart, it holds my life “is the job I couldn’t escape from. As the track progresses I talk of things like “All my life I’ve weighed lies”, the doubts that I had about becoming a full- time musician and surviving. The track ends with me accepting I need to change my life as my “heart don’t feel so good””

Los Angeles artist Gaby Hernandez just released her third album “Spirit Reflection” via Mr Bongo and it’s latin, tropicalia, folk, electronica and jazz seamlessly blended together on a warm, dreamlike and sparkling album.

“Spirit Reflection” features a stellar line-up of LA talent; jazz star Kamasi Washington, Stuart Howard (AKA Lapalux), Kelis and Gaslamp killer collaborator Dexter Story, plus Ninja Tune, Plug Research and Soul Jazz artist Carlos Niño, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker.

This is the premiere of the visuals for the track “Super Nova Lovers”.

Deep and otherworldly house from Stockholm courtesy of duo Saine & Smith, their debut release “Laughing Kids” will be released soon via Mike Simonetti headed imprint 2MR.

We here at Discobelle are very proud and glad to be able to premiere the A-side track “Lord Vanlig” which draws inspiration from Afro-Caribbean traditional folk music from the 60’s and the track features hypnotizing groove along with a bittersweet feeling of cheerfulness along with sorrow.
