An artist out of California who made a big splash this fall is Michl whose debut single, ‘Kill Our Way To Heaven‘, garnered over a million SoundCloud plays since its October release. The mystery act now returns with a follow up, the equally entrancing, ‘When You Loved Me Least’.
Sea Bed look to keep their momentum going with another cut off their upcoming debut EP, Moving Ghosts, which is shaping up to be quite a project. ‘Conqueror’ is so smooth, a deeply grooving track with bits of house and R&B that come together in an irresistible package of hazy late night vibes. Moving Ghosts is set to drop March 11th via Four Thieves Records and is currently available for pre-order on both vinyl and digital formats.
A new favorite coming out of London’s north side is TENDER, who blew me away with their single, ‘Lost‘. I mentioned I couldn’t wait to hear more in that post, and just about a week on, we’ve already been blessed with #anotherone (perks of being late on stuff, less wait time in between). ‘Cut’ is the third single off the duo’s upcoming EPII, which drops Friday (the 12th) and is a melancholic slice of dark pop with just the right amount of soul. The perfect serving to get you through the mid week lull, check it below.
‘Sweet Waste Of Time’ is the lovely creation from newcomer Tayá, a 17-year old singer-songwriter from Liverpool. The song is produced by George Reid from AlunaGeorge and is a spot on bit of R&B / pop that is available for your listening enjoyment below.
‘Closer’ is a beautiful track out of northeastern England, created by newcomer Cape Cub. It is the lead song off his debut EP of the same name, which is due out in March. The tune has a cinematic feel, but also manages to maintain a bit of intimacy that makes it a real charmer.
