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.

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!!

NEW MUSIC: Truls – “Out Of Yourself” [New Single + Official Video]

 

This song by Norwegian singer-songwriter Truls (aka Truls Heggero) is simply pop-magic! Magic I tell you!!

Formally of indie-rock band Lukestar, Truls’ “Out of Yourself” is synthy and soulful electro-pop tune with a soaring catchy chorus driven by Heggero’s mind-blowing falsetto.

This track is captivatingly good and just plain brilliant! Watch the creepy, mind-trip, head-scratching official video below.

NEW MUSIC: MOKO – “Summon The Strength” + “Homesick”

 moko-homesick

Introducing London’s Electro-R&B-Soul singer, MOKO.

The talented 21 Y.O’s music is a mixture of R&B, Gospel and Soul; sonically delivered in a blend of broody house beats and 90’s-inspired electronica.

The mesmerizing “Summon The Strength” is her debut single—and what a debut it is! The broody, slow burning dance track is a glorious throwback to early 90’s trip-hop; great bands like Massive Attack, Morcheeba and Tricky come to mind. “There are many laws, some of which I fight…but I, can’t summon the strength no more” MOKO soulfully sings above the sleek production.

“Homesick,” a recently released track that just appeared on her Soundcloud page is another great production that showcases Moko’s incredible vocal strength. Her velvety gospel-voice; which sound way beyond her years and echos that of Jennifer Hudson, easily breaks through the dominant pulsing bass and experimental electronic-beats of the track.

We are completely enamored and mystified by MOKO’s appearance, voice and sound. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this talented newcomer!

WATCH, LISTEN, LOVE!
