Tasmanian singer-songwriter, ASTA briefly caught our attention last year when we stumbled upon her catchy electro-pop song, “My Heart is On Fire.”
ASTA possesses a very mysterious and unique voice that’s not easy to forget. So, following up on her, I decided to check her Facebook page for any updates; and as luck would have it she has just released another fantastic tune called, “I Need Answers.” Striking the perfect balance between electro-pop and indie-rock, the slow burning track begins like an acoustic Lykke Li song before breaking into a groovy danceable pop song highlighting the singer’s mystical vocals. I can’t get this amazing song out of my head. It’s so good. Take a look at the official video.
Below you can download a killer remix of “My Heart is On Fire” by Acid Mouth! and a House take on the track by German producer, Marius Hoersturz. Simply click on Buy. The link will take you to the his Facebook page where you can grab the remix.
Another day, another incredibly amazing Swedish act. Introducing Singer-songwriter, Tove Lo.
Late last year the talented 24-year-old singer\songwriter released her first solo effort; the lyrically obsessive and heart-wrenching pop song, “Love Ballad.” Thou the song is a ‘ballad’ at heart; it plays like a catchy summer song—the track mixes melodic drums kicks over an island-tinged vibe that playfully carry the tune above Lo’s optimistic cries.
Tove Lo follows that incredible release with another stellar track called, “Habits.” A mid-tempo pop tune with the same lyrical punch as “Love Ballad.”The song and video depict the singer as she downward spirals in a list of habits and addictions after a failed relationship. “You’re gone and I gotta stay high, all the time, to keep you off my mind” she sings over the minimal pop beats of the chorus. Incredible song. I’m really excited to hear more from Ms. Tove Lo!
In search of new music I came across Parisian indie-pop-rock artist, Pamela Huteand her newly released single and video, “Vectorial Boy.”
The track’s brit-rock arrangement and incredibly catchy guitar-riffs draw influence from early 90′s pop-rock masters like Elastica (whom I adore) and The Breeders. The official video for “Vectorial Boy” might seem simple at first, but Hute’sBuddy Holly style glasses and androgynous demeanor is all that’s needed to complement the track’s lyrical coolness and electric pop-rock edge.
Take a listen!
“Vectorial Boy” is taken from Pamela Hute’s latest album, Bandit.
Inouwee is a Danish indie pop electro duo from Copenhagen consisting of Kaare Hansen and Signe Marike. Their music is authentic, emotional and honest; with a genre-bending sound that cleverly blends trip-hop, indie and rock into darkly enigmatic pop songs.
“Danger,” is their brand new single. The track is taken from their debut EP, ‘GHOSTS AND SHADOWS.’ “I want to melt your cold blooded heart, need to, rip it up, got to tear it apart”lead singer Signe Marike softly croons over the tracks menacing synth work and dazzling keyboard play. The song’s hypnotizing electro-vibe plays like a secret project between NIN, Depeche Mode and MS MR that’s musically grounded by Marike’s warm emotional vocals. Loving this song. Take a listen!
Watch the video for “Danger” below and be sure to grab the ‘GHOSTS AND SHADOWS – EP’ via iTunes now!
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.

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
