Well, the Swedish electro-dance singer\rapper has unleashed another banger to add to her already killer collection.

R&B British songstress V V Brown is moving in a new direction musically these days and we absolutely love it. Check out her latest offering, ‘Samson.’ The tune is a dark, art-house pop number in the same musical vein as Bat for Lashes and The Knife. The track was Co-produced by Dave Okumu of The Invisible.

The single is taken from her forthcoming album entitled Samson & Delilah which is due for release in September on her own label, YOY Records.

Haim – “Falling” [Leonard Friend Remix]

 

Haim_LF_RMX

R&B whiz kid Leonard Friend takes on the catchy single from the the buzzed about Los Angeles sister trio HAIM.  Friend re-imagines the song with sparkling synths, a slowed down drum that gives a nod to Mtume’s ”Juicy Fruit” (aka the sample for Biggies “Juicy,”) old Zapp records, Phil Collins and TLC.

In case you missed it, Leonard Friend released his LXLF ep just a few months back, a record packed with quirky synth explosions, slow jams, and dance-floor anthems like “Holograms,” “Middle of the Night” and more. The EP is available as a free download from Friend’s official site.

BANKS – ‘Warm Water’ [New Track]

 

BANKS-WARM-WATER

If you follow this blog frequently than you already know that I’m obsessed with LA-based electronic singer-songwriter, BANKS aka your-next-favorite-artist. Love her music, voice and mysterious seductive vibe.  

Her latest offering, ‘Warm Water’ is a blissful down-tempo track produced by UK electronic pop prodigy Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs(TEED). The collabo is an odd but very welcome surprise. ‘Warm Water’ is a more subtle and spacious affair than the singer’s previous tunes and also a great departure for TEED’s typical arena-size dance productions. The song has a groovy, Marvin Gaye “Sexual Healing” kinda vibe that feels effortless and tender. The kind of song you and your loved-one can enjoy during or after sex…while smoking a cigarette or during a warm sweaty embrace. Take a listen.

If you haven’t yet discover the seductive, nocturnal electro-pop sounds of BANKS, now is the time.

emika-dva

 

Here’s Emika’s brand new video for the entrancing, sexually charged and simply incredible, “She Beats” taken from her upcoming sophomore album, DVA. The video is directed by Matt Lambert and features Stephanie Ballantine.

There is comment for this video by someone on Emika’s YouTube channel that perfectly depicts what I feel and I’m sure what other fans like myself feel about Emika’s dark, magnetic, spellbinding sound. The comment reads:

“exploding sensuality… i wonder why this girl doesnt just label herself as a sonic drug”

That sentence defines EVERYTHING! So, from now on, I’ll be referring to Emika as the ‘sonic drug’.

Emika is currently on a short U.S tour (Dates below) I’ll be at the Brooklyn show on May 24 so stop by and say hello!

DVA arrives June 10.

Alpine – “Gasoline” [Official Video]

 

I had the pleasure of seeing Australia’s Alpine perform their new single, “Gasoline” live in Brooklyn a few months back when the band was on their way to rock the stages of the SXSW Music Festival in Austin. And if you follow my Instagram (@nuwavepony) you’ll probably noticed that I’ve met and had a brief chat with the lovely Phoebe after the show. She is probably one of the nicest person I’ve ever met! Both, Phoebe Baker and Lou James have an incredible presence on-stage that can easily seduce and energize an audience.

The sparkly and shimmery “Gasoline” sounds as sweet LIVE as it does in studio form.  Below is the newly released official video for the catchy tune. Check it out!

Alpine’s debut album, A IS FOR ALPINE arrives May 21.

NEW MUSIC: Elizabeth Rose – ‘Crystallise’ EP

Elizabeth-Rose-Crystallise-EP

Hailing from Sydney, 22-year-old electronic-pop producer, Elizabeth Rose has a knack for producing richly textured, highly addictive, electronic dance tunes.

Rose burst onto the scene back in 2012 with her debut single ‘Ready.’ The track is a blissful, infectious pop song layered in astral beats and loops that showcase her talent for making rich and melodic dance songs.

Rose recently teamed-up with UK producer Sinden for the new single, ‘Again.’ The fantastic collaboration is a boombastic treat of 808 key arrangements and club ready beats over Rose’s sweet dreamy vocals. (I’m kinda obsessed with this tune right now)

Both tracks are taken from Elizabeth Rose’s debut EP ‘Crystallise,’ out now.

Free demo and a remix below. Check it!!
