An electronic collective from London whose music is reminscent of the playful melancholic side of Hot Chip except with a violinist and both male and female vocals. They’ve supported Alt-J, Disclosure and are playing The Academy 2 on October 30th. Watch the video for ‘Dust Clears’ for starters.
This Bristol singer’s future R&B popas heard on the three-track free download The Middle Child EP has a British Frank Ocean vibe.
She’s appeared in M.I.A.’s latest video and her look has already set her up for fashionista coverage. However, it’s her weird and wonderful tunes that really matter, ethereal, dreamy, and wonky R&B tracks that leave an imprint much larger than their sound.’Water Me’, from the Young Turks EP2 out September 9th, also has a discombobulatingly altered video to boot.
