Ang Low, heard of him? If the answer is yes, then just press play because you already know this is golden. If not, take a seat and let me introduce you to a pop artist whose sound is one for the books. With a strong voice that covers a range of notes, Low invites us to ride along with his new single ‘Wild Horses’ which is set for official release on Super Recordings mid-October. The song is co-written with Laura Welsh and has a melody that is addicting to anyone who likes to dance and will make non-dancers want to join in. Keep a look out for this Brooklyn boy and what he has in store.
Pistols At Dawn
Let me tell you one thing, if you found yourself in a room with Swedish singer Seinabo Sey and the woman opened her mouth to sing, everyone, I mean everyone, would stop and listen. Besides having one of the greatest names in the industry, Sey has a powerful soulful voice that just radiates down to your core. Deep and sensual, Seinbo tells the story of a love gone bad in her recent single ‘Pistols At Dawn’ off of her debut EP slated for release in mid-October. Her lyrics tell a powerful story, such as ‘I’d rather die tonight if I have to, why would you ever think I would take a bullet for you?” I mean, she shoots straight with this single, and she hits the bull’s-eye.
Two Bodies feat. Emma Louise (Extended Version)
Did we just see the words Flight Facilities pop up on our music radar? You bet your bottom dollar we just did. After witnessing them perform live at this years Coachella Music Festival, our ninja clan fell even more in love with Flight Facilities; their uplifting melodies chill us to the bone and send us into a state of mental paralysis to which all we are forced to do is groove. It feels as if we have been waiting for forever to hear the latest from the Australian dance duo, but look no further ninjas, because they’re back with a stunning new original, “Two Bodies” which features the dreamy vocals from Emma Louise.
“Two Bodies” exemplifies everything flawless in a track; with its subtle ambient vibe, a soft percussion, and Emma’s ghostly vocals collectively create the perfect escape. Wishing we were intertwined with that of another human being, Flight Facilities gives us every reason to escape from the norm and drift off into the delicate sound waves exuded from this divinity. “Two Bodies” is the first release off of their debut full-length album, Down to Earth, which is set to be released on October 28th. Pre-Order the album on iTunes and enjoy the celestial bliss that resonates from all over in this ethereal track.
Want to go for a spin on the old disco dance floor? Wait, I will make that even better, a disco roller-skating dance floor where the lights twirl you around the your feet ski along the wood floors while your body sways to an intoxicating pop beat.
That is exactly where listeners are transformed when listening to PrOfiles new song ‘Luxury’ off of their debut EP Luxury due out later this month. An electronic indie-pop duo hailing from sunny LA, the duo write songs about personal experiences with sex addiction, hypnotherapy and love. The highly talented Lauren Pardini, who began her writing with producer DJ Khalil, handles vocals and keys. Taking over as the producer and all things guitar is Danny Sternbaum who has six years of music experience under his belt. The two collaborated for a unique and sexy sound that combines pop, indie, and yes a hint of disco. Feel free to bust out the old roller-skates and take them for a spin while listening to this laidback single.
Some artists just work really hard at their craft, as in harder than most and in the end, their music shows just how time, effort, blood, sweat, and tears went into it all. The Ugly Club is one such group who have been operating for five years now making incredible rock music. Their recent single, ‘Passengers’, transforms the group into a new sound of dance pop. The funky beat mixed with the hand clapping melody and catchy vocals, makes this single a hard one to not listen to on repeat a few times over. Keep an ear out for this hardworking not at all ugly group, their hard work is continuing to pay off and us listeners are the lucky ones.
Higher (ft. Raury)
Atlanta’s Raury has been seemingly omnipresent in the last couple months culminating in his excellent debut project, Indigo Child, and subsequent signing with Columbia Records. The young artist has an extremely versatile repertoire of styles, which although classified by many as hip-hop, incorporates a strong folk influence as well as impressive vocal melodies. More important than his genre-classification, though, is the evident passion portrayed in his music that has already earned him a loyal fan base and, in some ways, sparked a movement of its own. Although Raury tends to lean more towards singing, he has an incredible flow as evidenced in his recent freestyle on Sway in the Morning.
The latest Raury sighting comes in the form of his feature on SBTRKT‘s upcoming project, a song we’ve been waiting for since the tracklist was released a few weeks ago. “Higher” is the fourth glimpse into SBTRKT’s much-anticipated album Wonder Where We Land and might be our favorite yet. Over a minimal, electronic soundscape, Raury employs a quick-hitting stream-of-consciousness flow reminiscent of his ATL predecessor Andre 3000 with two particularly personal, and powerful, verses. Enjoy this one above and head over to iTunes to grab a pre-order of SBTRKT’s upcoming project, which drops on October 7th.
Displaying a talent for creating dance music that strays from convention, Australian producer Trumpdisco has just unveiled his new three-track EP, “Third.” Released as a joint venture between No Tomorrow and Vicious Recordings, this collection is a wonderfully explorative journey and is a modern twist on the underground electronic sound from years gone by.
“Ill Still” is a highlight here, with grimey snatches of bass and sharps twists of melody throughout. “Outworld” is probably the most accessible of the three, and the subtle groove of the bass line works as an infectious hook. Finally “High Silence” is probably the darkest with its thumps of rhythm playing a key role.
Trumpdisco’s “Third” EP should be listened to in full, and enjoyed as a bold sampler of his work. You can pick up a copy here.
