Kansas City-based singer/producer Alex Harbolt’s project Heads or Heads offers up a piece of warm and glittering chillwave/synthpop with new single “Climbing Up” (drops April 3rd). The single is taken from his sophomore album, “Low Angles” which is set to be released on May 1st. The album was written/recorded over the entirety of 2019 after a trip to Los Angeles with his girlfriend inspired a soft idea for a concept record on California idealism to a Kansas City-based artist.

“It was the first time in LA for both of us and I remember so many crazy things kept happening that in my head, I kept going, ‘I can make an album out of this. I grew up in rural Missouri and always wondered what places like LA would be like… it’s sort of been a dream to live there for a while now and being there in person was a very surreal experience.”

Okay Kaya is the project of Norwegian-born but now New York-based Kaya Wilkins, the synth-driven track “Asexual Wellbeing” is her latest single and is taken off her upcoming album “Watch This Liquid Pour Itself” which is set for release via Jagjaguwar on January 24th 2020.

“island mud house
horses and stringy apple tree
blood of beet meals
baby in a moth suit clipping the
clothing-rack soon dry
look out for a field
be fire and dv’s and shitty driving good music
imitate algae in the coolest jacket to exist
loving your loved ones like it’s never going to end don’t let the hand deject you
except the shadow it gives
paint face true Scandinavian inappropriate
hang out by historical landmarks and feeling
NOTHING”

Dutch dj/producer/graphic designer Coloray (perhaps best known for his work as a member of Tunnelvisions) is on the verge of releasing his new single track “Real Life Cinema” (due tomorrow November 27th via Dutch label Atomnation but you can hear the premiere right here on Discobelle).

The track itself is a superbly efficient 80’s influenced dance floor stormer with raw and hypnotizing layers of vocally propelled new wave, post-punk and synth-pop sounds.
