Dragonette – “Live In This City” [New Single]


Canadian electro-pop band Dragonette has released yet another catchy, addictive and banging new track called “Live In This City” from their upcoming new album Bodyparts.

The infectious rock tinged “Live In This City” was written and recorded in London but lead singer Martina Sorbara says:

“Live In This City” was “born out of a drunken haze at the stampede in Calgary”

The “Calgary Stampede” is a huge rodeo and festival in Canada.

Dragonette‘s Bodyparts arrives September 25th. “Live in This City” is available now in iTunes.

Cinnamon Girl – “Devil In Me” [Brand new Single + Video]


We introduced you to the beautiful and talented Cinnamon Girl a few months back (read our introduction HERE) Well, the Danish-born, London-based beaut (aka Camilla Roholm) is back with yet another stellar track and video for the single, ‘Devil In Me.’

The new video sees the multi-talented artist and rising pop-star looking mighty glam and rocking every sort of musical instrument to the beat of keyboard riffs and 80′s pop-synth.

‘Devil In Me’ was self-produced and written by Camilla. The video was directed and shot by Joanna Dudderidge.

I LOVE THIS TRACK! seriously, why isn’t Cinnamon Girl in every single radio station yet? she is incredible! I’m gonna say that one more time—she is Incredible!!

The track can be downloaded for free from http://cinnamong1rl.bandcamp.com/

KITTEN – “Japanese Eyes” and “Cut It Out – EP”


Introducing LA-based synth-pop group KITTEN fronted by the extraordinary CHLOE CHAIDEZ!  The band formed by Chaidez, Andy Miller and Chris Vogel have been building a well deserved buzz due to their contagious synth-pop-rock sound and electrifying live shows.

On their new Cut It Out – EP (out now) The band showcases a sonically softer side with two gorgeous, dreamy and sensual electronic numbers that could be best described as Karen O meets Chromatics meets Charli XCX.

The video for the EP’s titled track was loosely inspired by early John Hugh’s flicks and was shot primarily in alleys and parts of LA underground hot spot The Smell. The imagery of the video and characters captures the essence of nightlife and longing of the track to perfection. The midnight synth-pop b-side of the EP, Sugar, has an equal sound appeal but with a much simpler video— just a simple slow moving image of a girl smoking a cigarette(?).

The band recently debuted a killer, danceable, nu-wave, sythn-pop-rock anthem called Japanese Eyes that simply blew my mind. The melodic guitar riff, synth work, along with Chaidez‘ feisty vocals will make anyone an instant fan of this electric and exciting new band.

Japanese Eyes and the Cut It Out – EP  are now available via iTunes.

Kitten is currently on tour and will be appearing at the Mercury Lounge in NYC tonight (7/27)! Check HERE for more details.

Nina Sky – “Heartbeat” – [New Video and Track]


Twin-sister act Nina Sky are back with their follow-up to their 2004 self-titled debut. The new album, simply titled Nicole & Natalie arrives on July 31st.

Moments ago the girls officially premiere the video for the album’s second single, “Heartbeat.” (The first Single, “Day Dreaming” was released 6 month ago)

“When we filmed the video for ‘Heartbeat,’ we knew we wanted it to be more about the feeling of the song and less about the storyline,” Natalie stated to Idolator.com “The colors, environment, and everyone dancing in their own element creates this surreal feeling of freedom. It’s just about listening to the rhythm inside you and letting that rhythm guide you.”

Watch as the girls dance in a rave of sorts to the beat of their rhythmic and electric new sound.

Loving the new sound direction!

Check it out!

Nina Sky will showcase their long-awaited follow up Aug. 2 at 8PM, inside The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City (I’ll be there!) Click here for details and tickets, visit TicketWeb.com here.

P.S Below is Nina Sky’s amazing collaboration with electro band CREEP.
