[Alternative] – Exhibitionist – Motionless

Exhibitionist
Motionless

It goes without saying, but Future Classic is at it again with identifying promising artists, and the one of the latest to release new material with them is Exhibitionist, the solo project of Kirsty Tickle. Following up the release of “Hands” seven month prior, Exhibitionist takes to a seductively syncopated groove on “Motionless” that traverses waves of modulated synths, a simple yet defiant drum pattern, and expressive vocals that seamlessly drift alongside every element of the song. The palpable sense of warmth throughout the tune provides an intangible comfort that lasts long after the final minutes, and with the fall season upon us, at least in some places, Exhibitionist has crafted an essential soundtrack to the more contemplative times ahead that accompany an evening indoors on a cold and (hopefully) snowy day. We’re certainly eager for more from Exhibitionist, and here’s to hoping we’ll be hearing something fresh sooner than later.

Catalina – After All [TMN Premiere]

Catalina
After All

To help get you over the hump for this week we’ve got an exclusive first listen for you. The band Catalina has come through with their brand new single “After All” to the dojo.

“After All” is about as chill as it gets. Any worries you’ve got from the week will be washed away once you bathe your ears in this debut single. It’s beautiful, but not in the typical way. It’s got a bittersweet tone to it that gives it some character and complexity that some artists just can’t pull off. Catalina are taking a strong first step with this single and we can’t wait to hear more in the future. For now, enjoy “After All” exclusively in the dojo.

MOHA – A-Side [TMN Premiere]

Moha
A SIDE

Featuring eclectic, up and coming artists with prominent potential is the lifeblood around here at TMN. Which is why, when we came across the first single from French-Senegalese artist Moha‘s debut LP FIT, the appropriately titled alt-pop R&B burner “A-Side”, we knew we had to jump all over it and get it into the ears of our readers.

Immediately, Moha’s unique musical fusion of African, French, and US influenced sounds is apparent, riding along elegantly picked guitar and shifting percussion which dive head first into a sea of gently raspy vocal reverberations. They way Moha so effortlessly wraps those gauzy vocals around its tightly wound production is quite consuming. As muted horns unfurl into “A-Side”‘s catchy chorus, it’s quite difficult to not stay stuck throughout its duration. Like his following, which has shunned the typical social media directed aesthetic and outside influence, Moha builds his music organically, layering his own playing on multiple instruments with powerful songwriting to create a sound and album that we are enthusiastically anticipating the release of. Until the full release of FIT, enjoy Moha’s “A-Side” served up fresh as a TMN Premiere above.
