BAYOU – “Cherry Cola”

 

I love discovering new talent. As a blogger, I receive a lot of emails of new artist and music; some have a lot of potential but very few are ready for the spotlight. London based mystery act, BAYOU seems to be there already. The hazy and gloomy nostalgic track “Cherry Cola” combines elements of R&B and dreamy electronica with vocals that fall somewhere in between The Weeknd and Hot Chip. The artistry on this debut track is so brilliantly executed that it feels familiar yet surprisingly fresh. I love, love, love everything about this song.

Now, I’m a huge fanatic of film director Wong Kar-Wai, I’ve seen every single one of his movies. The video for “Cherry Cola” appears to take cues from one of his love-is-imposible kinda films. This makes “Cherry Cola” a much more special song.

What do you guys thinks of the song?! Let me know your thoughts?!!

Karin Park – “Wild Child” [Official Video]

 

My past is like an apple tree, Does he ever wanna taste it? Ever since he came here through my bedroom door, I’ve been a wild child.

I’ve been obsessed with Karin Park ever since i got a hold of her Tiger Dreams EP back in 2011…but I’ve never got the chance to introduce her on the blog.

The Swedish electro-goth-pop singer recently released the video for the incredible,“Wild Child,” a highlight of many from the incredible album, Highwire Poetry. The record, released this year, was influenced by her strict religious upbringing in a remote Swedish town and the three years she spent in a Japanese missionary school. Highwire Poetry contains productions by Fever Ray and The Knife producer, Christoffer Berg.

If you’re new to Karin Park I urge you to seek out this record! Highwire Poetry is one of the best releases of the year! Below are some highlights from the record.

PS. Does anyone else thinks that “Tiger Dreams” could be a perfect B-Side or a sequel to Bjork‘s “Hunter”?

The brand new single by one of our favorite bands, The Good Natured has finally arrived!

The pop-noir trio returns with “5-HT” a killer melodic new tune produced but the genius, Richard X.

What is 5-HT, you ask? Lead singer Sarah McIntosh explains:

5-HT is a chemical within the human body which helps to release serotonin in our brains. The song explores the contrast between love and pain, and the notion that love is a drug“.

The single will include a cover of Fine Young Cannibals’ 1989 hit single “She Drives Me Crazy” plus remixes by Kat Krazy and GHOSTWERK.

The Good Natured‘s highly-anticipated debut album arrives in Summer 2013.

Kim Ann Foxman – Return It / Hypnotic Dance EP

 

Former Hercules and Love Affair singer Kim Ann Foxman steps into the spotlight with her first solo project. Listen to the soulful house tune “Return It” and the nu-disco-house dance number “Hypnotic Dance” off her newly released EP.

When discussing her new music and debut album, Foxman said, “There will be moments of dancing as well as a good sing-a-long. It won’t be stuck in one specific genre. Of course it’ll include house-y vibes but some other elements for sure as well. R&B and freestyle influences too, as well as slow jams.”

The video for “Return It” was directed by Jonathan Turner with art direction by Silvia Prada. My very good friend Mey has a cameo in the video (at 0:17 mark with semi-shaved head and blond ponytails)

Below are some amazing remixes by Azari & III’s Dinamo Azari and more!
