Following the release of her incredible debut single, ‘Before I Ever Met You’, LA-based electronic singer-songwriter, BANKS has unleashed the video for B-Side,’Fall Over.‘
We kinda raved about BANKS during our introduction a few weeks back(Here)–especially in regards to the mesmerizing, ‘Fall Over.’ We are completely captivated by BANKS’ music that we actually added a new section called ‘MUST HEAR NEW MUSIC’ on our blog’s homepage– just so you don’t miss the chance to hear her music!
The video for ‘Fall Over’ sees the beautiful singer as she writhes, toss and turns alone in her bedroom baring not just her skin, but lots of emotion and soul.
It’s cold, windy and snowing like crazy here in NYC…but one can always count on San Francisco’s VICEROYto warm up and brighten-up the day with his masterful, lively, is-summer-all-the-time killer remixes.

Watch the just released video for The Knife’s“A Tooth For An Eye” from the band’s forthcoming album Shaking The Habitual.
A Tooth For An Eye’ deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership. Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior? In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike express joy and a sense of freedom? There is no prestige in their performance. The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring “I’m telling you stories, trust me”. There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.
The video was directed by Roxy Farhat & Kakan Hermansson. The Knife’sShaking The Habitual arrives on 8/9 April. Available to Pre order HERE
Showcasing a unique take on electro-soul; the talented Nottingham singer beautifully blends soulful, down-tempo music with sensual, emotional vocals behind haunting musical backdrops.
Indiana’s debut single ‘Blind As I Am’ is a goosebump inducing ballad that showcases the power and frailty of her voice. Indiana’s haunting cover of Frank Ocean’s‘Swim Good’ is an equally captivating stunner that will prompt multiple listens.
‘Bound’ is the singer’s latest single. Blending slinky blues and gospel-tinged soul with seductive minimalism, the track offers a glimpse into Indiana’s elegantly expressive style and wide emotional palette. From beginning to end, the track is simply stunning.

British singer Lulu Jamesfirst caught our attention via her self-released debut EP ‘Rope Mirage’ in late spring 2012. After a busy summer of live shows and writing sessions the talented singer signed to RCA before releasing her second, independent single ‘Be Safe’ via Black Butter label.
‘Closer’ is the first release from RCA – The track, produced by The Invisible’s Dave Okumu, is a seductive, 90′s tinged, electro-soul dance number that serves as a perfect re-introduction to James’ evolving sound.
AlunaGeorgeannounced the release of their new single ‘Attracting Flies’, available on March 10th as well as the news of their forthcoming album ‘Body Music’ released on July 1st. Injecting some deeper bass grooves into ‘Attracting Flies,’ new kid on the block Shift K3Y(aka Shift Key) gives us the first remix of the duo’s new single, with more to come from Bauuer, Jamie Jones and S-Type.
Lana Del Rey‘s gorgeous breakthrough track “Video Games” get a surprising and pleasant cover by synthpop duo, Monarchy. The cover mashes Monarchy’s own, “The Phoenix Alive” with Lana’s nostalgic lyrics. Ra Black’s vocal work on the track works surprisingly well, almost capturing the same anguish that the original holds.
