“Widows Tears” is the expansive Italo disco wonder from Honey Soundsystem’s Bezier and appears on his split EP with Fort Romeau. The EP was released to celebrate Fort Romeau’s label Cin Cin’s first anniversary and is the latest in their string of split 12”s. Pretty sweet gift.
All the tracks you need in your life.
Bezier – “Widows Tears”
Angel – “Fvxk With You”
Fast-rising R&B singer/songwriter Angel recently dropped his new “Her” EP which includes the brilliant “Fvxk With You”. Wonderlist worthy for the Jade sample alone, the track showcases Angel’s supremely smooth vocals and easy-going delivery. Also on the track is Atlanta’s Rich Homie Quan who delivers a fierce 16 bars. “Her” is out now via Island Records.
WEIRDO – “Sapphire”
WEIRDO, which started out as a faceless musical entity, is the recording project of Berlin-based Josh Christopher and responsible for some of the year’s finest left-field pop moments. Following on from recent singles “Butter” and “Armanio”, new cut “Sapphire” is another shimmering example of Christopher’s songwriting.
GIRLI – “Fuck Right Back Off To LA”
“Fuck Right Back Off To LA” is the new single from GIRLI. A fan favourite which originally appeared on GIRLI FM, it’s now getting a proper release. Featuring her trademark tongue-in-cheek lyrics, GIRLI once again succeeds in raising an eyebrow and a smile. GIRLI plays a sold-out homecoming show at Camden Assembly on 24 November.
EarlGréy – “Overdue”
New York City’s EarlGréy has shared “Overdue”, the follow-up to “Pulldown”. EarlGréy layers his smooth vocals over some heavy beats to create this warped and fresh blend of soul, hip-hop and pop. “Overdue” will appear on his forthcoming debut EP which is due to be released in 2017.
Saya – “No Pressure”
“No Pressure” is the new track from pop-futurist Saya. The 21-year-old mixes trap, funk, and hip-hop to serve up the freshest pop cocktail. Discussing the track, Saya said it’s “that moment when somebody new gets your pulse racing. It’s a new romance that’s a thrill ride, rich in passion & excitement, that’s where I wanted to take the song”.
Novella – “Change of State”
“Change of State” is your first taste and the title track of quartet Novella’s sophomore record. Recorded in the Victorian bedroom studio James Hoare (Ultimate Painting, Veronica Falls), the album tackles Britain’s dramatic and rapidly changing political landscape. The psychedelia-tinged “Change Of State” is beguiling listen, with its lush melodies and lyrics that will linger long after the first listen. Change of State is released on 17 February on Sinderlyn Records.
Tycho – “Division” (Heathered Pearls Remix)
Heathered Pearls has been called in to perform remix duties on Tycho’s “Division” and the resulting track is a heavyweight number that amps up the energy of the original. “Division” appeared on Tycho’s recent album Epoch. The album will get a physical release on 20 January via Ghostly International.
Will Simms – “Chariot” ft. Stylo G
Will Simms, the production and writing wizard behind tracks from the likes of WSTRN, Aloe Blacc, Lil Jon, Krishane and Sean Kingston, is stepping out in front to drop his debut track “Chariot”. Featuring Stylo G, it’s a track that’s set to be exploding from sound systems everywhere.
Jay IDK – “Mentality”
Rising Maryland rapper Jay IDK releases his ode to the UK in the shape of his London inspired video for “Mentality”. A track taken off his latest album “Empty Bank” which explores the relationship and temptation of money and status, the album was the first ever record to premiere on Forbes.
Bright Light Bright Light – “Touch Me”
Fresh from a UK and European tour, Bright Light Bright Light are already back in the studio ahead of the forthcoming “Cinematography” EP. New cut ‘Touch Me’ is a fresh take on the Wish & Fonda Rae track, later covered by Cathy Dennis and featured in Nightmare On Elm St 2. “Cinematography” – an EP of covers of some of Bright Light Bright Light’s favourite music from the silver screen, is released on Friday.
