Legendary electro-pop band Goldfrapp, consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, mark their return to music with the unveiling of the brand new single, “Anymore.” The track is taken from their upcoming brand new album (Yay!!) entitled Silver Eye (artwork above) arriving on March 31st through Mute Records.
“Anymore” sounds like a return to form for the band; with its rhythmic synth and sensual vocal melody the track it’s very reminiscent of their golden Black Cherry-era sound! We absolutely love it!
On the making the album, Alison Goldfrapp says:
“We’ve never liked repeating ourselves. Often we react to things we’ve just done. We like the spontaneity of not knowing. It’s only through the process that we start to figure out what it is. The fans who have stuck with us are the ones who embrace that idea and are excited by the thought that they don’t know quite what to expect next.”
Will Gregory added:
“I think writing an album is like being lost in a wood. You’re trying to figure out an interesting path. You don’t know whether it’s going to be a dead end or somewhere interesting and you never know when to stop because around the corner some beautiful vista might open up.”
Excited for a new Goldfrapp album?!!

British electronic music duo Snakehips (producers Oliver Lee and James Carter) and the ever amazing MØ team-up on the heartbreaking electro-ballad, “Don’t Leave”. The track was released a few weeks back and today the duo premiered the emotionally intense visuals for the song.
In the video, directed by Malia James, MØ plays a “perfectly imperfect” wild heart in love (with a really hot dude btw), and who’s abruptly faced with the very real possibility of a breakup. MØ does an amazing job here portraying the emotional yearning and vulnerability of the song…especially in the last two minutes of the clip. Intense! Check it out!
“Don’t Leave” is out now.
Watch BANKS’ haunting new visuals for “Trainwreck” the latest single off her sophomore album, The Altar!
In the clip, directed by Marie Schuller, we see BANKS’ looking quite striking in a latex outfit (and crow!) in a dark and sensual dance performance in front of an old-school VHS camera for a pair of anonymous suited creeps.

British singer Salt Ashes (real name Veiga Sanchez) unveils the dark and sensual video for ‘Save It’. The track is taken from her phenomenal, criminally overlooked, self-tilted debut released last year.
“I wanted to create an abstract and artistic piece of work that mixed darkness with beauty and sexuality with rebellion. The song is about fighting for a love that others don’t approve of, so aside from wanting to portray the obvious intense passion there’s a lot of tension and defiance within the song that I wanted to come across.” Sanchez tells Billboard
We’ve been a fan of Salt Ashes for some time now, and coincidentally, the imagery of restraint sensuality and religious visuals on this video kinda capture the essence of her debut album for us. The underground beats, dark lyrics and Sanchez ethereal vocals throughout her debut felt confessional in a spiritual-cleansing-sonic way for some reason — which is why we picked her debut as one of the Best Albums of 2016.
Check out ‘Save It’ below and let us know what you think of the video\track?!

After nearly 3 years without a proper release of her own, Mother Monster is finally back with a brand new single off her yet-untitled fifth studio album called “Perfect Illusion”! The track, produced by Tame Impala, Mark Ronson and Bloodpop, it’s a perfect blend of pop, rock and synth along with Gaga’s ferocious signature vocals! The chorus is catchy, passionate and heartbreakingly sexy (is that possible? Yes!). Gaga’s vocals have never sounded more intense than this! “It wasn’t love, it wasn’t love \ It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion) \ Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love \ It was a perfect illusion (Perfect illusion) “
Gaga said of the song during an appearance at New York City’s iHeartRadio Music Summit a few weeks back: “The song is about modern ecstasy … We found our sweet, simple, ragey way of saying it,” “I get this sick adrenaline rush every time I hear it.”
We are obsessed! Take a listen!
UPDATE: VIDEO OUT NOW!
Here is a fantastic dace-remix of “Hotter Than Hell” by new pop-queen in the making Dua Lipa! The house-remix comes courtesy of Dutch DJ\Producer Jack Wins.

Tinashe’s new full-length album Joyride (the follow-up to 2014’s Aquarius) has been in a sort-of limbo state since its announcement early in the year. Back in April, things looked a bit grim when she had to postponed the rest of her Joyride World Tour due to “unexpected recording commitments.” So who knows exactly what’s been going on behind the curtains…
Yesterday, the R&B songstress released a brand new summery pop-jam called “Superlove”; signaling that things might just be falling back into gear!
“I have felt a strong urge recently to release a song that promotes positivity, love, and light,” she said in a press release. ‘Superlove’ is a celebration of happiness. More specifically, it celebrates the kind of happiness that is so immense and infectious, that you can’t help but to rejoice in it. I hope to eulogize this wonderful energy and make people feel good, love harder, and dance together.”
The track, produced by The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, is probably one of her most pop-friendly tunes yet; It has a bouncy, R&B groove with a bit of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” attitude mixed in. We love it.
