You may remember how we featured a cover of Usher’s “Climax” by this eclectic London-based band last year. We’re happy to say that Mt. Wolf returns with yet another dream-like track, “Veins”, off their second EP. Kate Sproule’s formidable vocals are reminiscent of Elena Torna’s delicate voice from indie folk band Daughter. Rest assured, the tune’s composition of transcendental synths, soft strings, and an impassioned voice will undoubtedly leave you in nothing less than a utopian state.
Sink into the full effect of their second EP Hypolight, available now.
Or indulge into the official music video for their leading single “Hypolight“.
WALL first charmed us with her delicate voice on the track, No Secrets, and she returns again with another song that tugs on our hearts’ strings. With vocals resting on water and an effortless honeyed melody, the sincere delivery of the song is undeniable. Be it in a coffee shop or in a car rushing to work, you are bound to suspend that moment when the track plays, so that you can find out what is on the mind of this evoking London songstress. “Shoestring” is the leading track off her new EP of the same name. Count down the days to purchase it — out April 2nd.
Aside from knowing that she is a singer and producer originating from London, not much else is known about her. However, what we can gather about WALL is that she has a real and sincere talent in bringing forth emotive and honest tracks. Following only the simplistic rhythm of a guitar and strokes of keyboard percussion, “No Secrets” is graced by WALL’s vocals which are gentle, yet crisp enough to resonate deeply with any listener.

With the inevitable cold weather creeping just around the holiday season, some of us can’t help but wish for a resurrection of summer heatwaves. Arriving just in time, however, is a new and aestival tune by New Navy, indie band from a tiny beachside town in Australia. Much like their hugely successful track, “Zimbabwe,” “Regular Town” features jangly percussions accompanied by a ukulele resulting in a cheery rhythmic beat that will light up even the gloomiest of days and moods. Reminiscent of Bahamas‘ “Caught Me Thinking,” this song is bound to bring on relaxing and summery vibe.
Originating from Portland, Maine is the folk artist Aly Spaltro, better known as Lady Lamb the Beekeeper. Having spent four years working at a DVD store which submerged her in a sea of films and soundtracks ranging from the Rocky Horror Picture Show to Spider-Man, this lovely artist has grown to produce a most unique and eclectic rock sound in the realm of folk music. Kicking off the tune with a lighthearted acoustic melody, the song progresses into a medley of upbeat instrumentals. Keep your ears to the ground for her debut studio album, Ripely Pine coming February 19th, 2013 via Ba Da Bing! Records.
MNDR released her debut album Feed Me Diamonds only about a month ago, but her evocative vocals in the track “Faster Horses,” has already inspired a countless number of remixes. One in particular, which has been fuelling energy on the dance floor is that of the 21-year-old Californian-based DJ, Deorro (formerly known as Ton!c). It features a faster beat, heavier bassline and strong emphasis on the vocal hook, creating a noteworthy club track.

Having collaborated with a wide spectrum of artists including hip-hop singer Usher and downtempo/jazz artist Sia, David Guetta furthers his musical versatility by working with Alesso, and duo Tegan and Sara. The Canadian folk duo’s voices first gained mass recognition through Tiesto’s hit “Feel it in my Bones” and have most recently been featured in Morgan Page’s “Body Work”. This new track kicks off with Alesso’s relished elate sound and eases into Tegan and Sara’s dynamic interplay of vocals and signature silvern voices, which give the song its unforgettable hook.
Check out more of Guetta’s well-anticipated re-release of Nothing but the Beat, titled Nothing But The Beat 2.0, featuring Sia, Ne-Yo & Akon, Taped Rai, Nervo and more.
