Kimbra – “90s Music” [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]

Kimbra’s musical ode to “90s Music“ now has an amazing set of crazy and wild visuals to go with it!  The video, Directed by Justin Francis, is a colorful and animated take on the fashion and music from the 90′s. There are tons of references to Missy Elliot, Bjork, TLC and Busta Rhymes just to name a few. The video is a blast!  Check it out!!

“90s Music“ is the leading track off Kimbras’ sophomore album The Golden Echo  arriving sometime this year. Apparently the 24-year-old New Zealand songstress worked with Muse’s Matt Bellamy   on a few tracks for the album so that should be interesting!

Nu Music: FEVER HIGH – “All Work” [New Single]

As if we weren’t already impressed and hardcore crushing on the musical talents of Brooklyn-based, Bananarama-esque female duo Fever High; the ladies hit us back yet again with another deliciously brilliant, 80s vibing tune, “All Work.” The track, produced by Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne) is a sublime, addictive summer jam with the same intoxicating, head-bobbing effect their debut single “That’s So Typical” had on us a few months back. We absolutely love it. We are still high on Fever High!

Check out the girls having some tropical beach fun in the the self-directed video shot on location in Costa Rica. Fun!!

Nu Music: Ji Nilsson – “Heartbreakfree” [Official Video]

Most notably known for penning tracks for Noonie Bao and Marlene Strand; Swedish singer-songwriter Josefina “Ji” Nilsson has just released a video for the sublime pop tune “Heartbreakfree.” The track, a soothing, gloriously infused R&B, electropop ballad has a contagious hand-clapping beat that echoes that of Lumidee’s R&B classic, ‘Never Leave You (Uh Oh)’   with a slight, lyrical nod to The Spice Girls “friendship never ends.” “I can’t stand the thought of us being over / coz tell me how I will ever get over you / I won’t. / I can’t break free / Let’s be friends be friends forever”  Nilson emotionally sings above the track’s soothing and harmonious island-tinged production.

In the fun video, an almost frame-by-frame remake of the Eartha Kitt video “Where Is My Man” we see Nilsson in her best retro-inspired outfits giving us some pure Eartha Kitt fashion realness. Get it, girl! GRRRR!

Everything about this song and video is pure POP perfection…EVERYTHING! There isn’t a single frame in this video that’s not visually stunning.

INDIANA – “Heart On Fire” [New Single + Debut Album]

Although it’s only been a year or so since we first introduced Nottingham-born songstress INDIANA (aka Lauren Henson) on the blog; it seems like we’ve been waiting years for the singer’s full length debut. Well, the time has finally arrived(!!) INDIANA’s debut album NO ROMEO has an official release date of August 11!

With the album’s release date announcement comes the brilliant, brand new single ‘Heart On Fire’ which premiered on Zane Lowe’s  BBC Radio 1 as his ‘Hottest Record’  a few nights ago. The scintillating new track opens with a futuristic sonic build before breaking into a seductive dance number. “Breathe my heart on fire, Read between the lines, Breathe my heart on fire, That’s not me to cry”   Indiana softly sings with a dazzling, soulful frailty amidst the track’s dance beats.

Listen!!

“Heart On Fire” will be released August 4 ahead of the singer’s debut album with  a set of remixes by Bobby Tank and Grum and IYES.

The Dø – “Keep Your Lips Sealed” [New Track!!]

After the release of their magnificent 2011 album Both Ways Open Jaws;  a record we raved about many times on the blog; French-Finish duo The Dø returns with the brand new single, “Keep Your Lips Sealed” off their yet untitled upcoming third album.

We absolutely love The Dø’s use of live instruments in their music and “Keep Your Lips Sealed” is just another great reminder of how innovated the duo is with their musical tools and productions. The harmonious indie-tinged “Keep Your Lips Sealed” features tambourines, horns, melodic synth and an inescapable marching drumroll throughout the song that adds a sense of thrill and danger to the eccentric track. Simply amazing, check it out!
