Out Of Horizon (DUSK Remix)

It happens so often. We hear soaring, warm, and glowing vocals, and we instantly anticipate remixes to follow. This time around, we’re bringing you an interpretation of “Out of Horizon,” which is the first single off Bang Gang’s upcoming LP. The first release in almost a decade brings excitement for fans of this storied Icelandic artist, who’s known for his work under this moniker, but Starwalker and Lady & Bird.

Enter remixers Balrock and Jake Tries, better known as DUSK, who also hail from Iceland. This Reykjavík-based duo takes the calming indie rock tune and flips it completely on it’s head, bringing devastating 808s and festival-style synth melodies. Most notably, the vocal samples in this remix are expertly crafted and meticulously placed, creating not only an impressive remix, but also an entirely new identity. With this vision, we’re offered up something that fits perfectly in the electronic realm, inciting the need to head out for a night on the town.

Aside from being a massively well-done remix, this tune is also going to provide breast cancer patients with the opportunity to go through clinical trials. Through Cadence & Cause, fans can purchase this song and know that they’re giving back to something that affects so many lives across the world.

Madison – That Fever [TMN PREMIERE]

That Fever

This Monday has been brimming with charming, ear-grabbing, attention-getting, and impressive tunes, and this premiere is no different.

We’ve been hip to DIY artist Madison for a few months now after writing up a tune she did with The Twelves. Now looking ahead to her upcoming EP, Wonderland, she’s dropping “That Fever,” which glows with a mix of new pop styling and a classic vibe that could be easily imagined with the most gorgeous of Bond girls.

Something about the echoing percussion, wavering guitar notes, and attitude-rich staccato vocal styling combine to make a cinematic experience, seemingly perfect for a musical breakdown or montage in a film. It’s engaging, memorable, and encompassing, demanding your attention for the full three-minute duration.

Aside from the notable musical abilities, this impressive woman is also doing her part to help shelter animals. Half of the proceeds from her upcoming EP release (coming July 21), will go to the rescue where she adopted her pup, Alabama.

Make sure to follow her on Facebook for updates on that EP.

Talking In Your Sleep

What a way to kick off your week.

After signing with Mind Of A Genius (The home of ZHU), and spending the past year hunkered away writing, LA based artist Gallant made a huge impact a few weeks back with the release of electronic/future RnB beauty, “Open Up“. Thankfully for us, Gallant whas resurfaced again and revealed another new track today.

Produced by STiNT (who also produced “Open Up”), “Talking In Your Sleep” features Gallant’s honeyed croon layered on top of an intricate, expansive arrangement, with an end result feeling like something that fits somewhere between FKA Twigs and Sam Smith.

Expertly boasting world-class vocals complimented by clicks, rattles, bells and a chorus which will stay with you long after first listen, this is another exciting entry from an artist who is emerging as a front-runner for darling of the blogosphere.

[Indie] Janelle Kroll – Numb

Numb

It’s rare to come across an artist as talented as Janelle Kroll with less than 1,000 SoundCloud followers. If you don’t know the name just yet, we highly suggest you familiarize yourself with her work, as she has just delivered her newest stunning original, “Numb.”

Kroll, who studied theater at Northwestern University, is a budding artist hailing from Chicago who has a voice similar to BANKS or Alanis Morissette, but is distinct in its own right. Armed with a soul and passion that listeners can feel, Kroll catches your attention from the start of “Numb,” and doesn’t let go until the final notes are fading away, demonstrating her immense vocal prowess on her latest original.

On “Numb,” the New York transplant elegantly glides her way through Angelo Lomelo and Rocco Rimpino’s dazzling production with her sultry croons, using her voice as a guide to take listeners through dreamy soundscapes. With a performance at Lollapalooza on the horizon, Janelle Kroll is primed to make 2015 her year, and we couldn’t agree more.

Animal Music – We Stay Vacant [TMN PREMIERE]

ANiMAL-MUSiC
We Stay Vacant

As the world continues its decades-long infatuation with electronic dance music, fans are continually seeing it grow and evolve, bringing new ideas and unbridled creativity. Today’s a perfect example of that, as we bring you a look at London/Cambridge four-piece drum and bass outfit Animal Music.

Dropping today, “We stay Vacant” is a first glimpse at this group’s original work. With obvious influences of Netsky, Wilkinson, Chase & Status, and other notable drum and bass legends, Animal Music also sites songwriters like Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and Bon Iver as inspiration, as well.

“We Stay Vacant” showcases the combination of the two worlds, fusing the fast-paced world of booming basslines, energetic percussion, and supercharged melodies with articulate songwriting abilities. Lead singer Tom Sutcliffe provides vocals on the track, bringing a song with a true message. And, while dance tracks have boasted amazing vocals for years to come, Animal Music has woven it into every aspect of their art. Not only will you hear Sutcliffe on their tracks, but he’ll be bringing those vocals live to each and every live performance.

We’ve been forging our sound in the studio and playing shows endlessly for the last two years without putting anything out. It’s like we’ve stolen a plane and been flying on fumes. Now we need to fill the tank. Obviously it will be incredible to go and play the four corners of the planet, taking the music to everyone so they can see and hear it for themselves. – Pete Pocket

This is just a taste of what’s to come from this inventive act. Make sure to follow them on facebook to get updates on new music, tour info, and general shenanigans.
