Sohodolls – “Talk Of The Town” [New Single]

Sohodolls

Listen to ‘Talk Of The Town’ the brand new single by London’s electro-pop band, Sohodolls! Led by the beautifully talented Maya Von Doll, Sohodolls’ new track is a dark and broody synthpop tune with an 80′s New-Wave flair sublimely anchored by Von Doll’s lush and dreamy, Kylie-esque vocals. The track recently had its debut on EQMusicBlog where Von Doll commented on the harsh reality that inspired the song.

“The inspiration for the sound of the track was the ‘Drive’ movie soundtrack and John Carpenter. Lyrically, the song is about rape culture and how it’s led to teenage suicides recently, something I’m passionate talking about.”

Intense…and brave! Listen!

STEED LORD – “CURTAIN CALL” [Official Video]

Icelandic synthpop-trio STEED LORD (Mega, Kali, and Eddie) delivers a fashionable visual treat for their latest single, “Curtain Call.” In the video, Directed by Einar Egilsson, we see lead-singer Kali in a stunning, avant-garde collection of chic ensembles roaming the streets of L.A as she gets the courage to finally draw the curtains on a ill-fated love affair. “Mending broken hearts is like puzzle, Curtain Call, Don’t wanna be still in love with you, here are my last words we are through”  Kali gently sings above the lush, sensual chorus.

“Curtain Call” has been in heavy rotation around here since we premiered the track back in January (here) and this video is simply just an added bonus to what is certainly one of the best tracks to emerge this year. As always, we can’t wait to hear (and see) what’s next to come from the L.A-Based trio.

“Curtain Call” is taken from the upcoming album “The Prophecy Pt. 2”

Watch, Love, Repeat!

Robyn – “Be Mine” [Verschwende Deine Jugend Remix]

Legendary electronic duo Röyksopp and Sweden’s reigning Queen Robyn take over New York City’s Pier 97 today for their massive #DoItAgain Tour. To celebrate this glorious event I have attached below a rare (kinda) bootleg remix of Robyn’s 2005 classic, “Be Mine.” Robyn’s version always had a sense of frailty to it’s lyrics and sound; this remix in the other hand turns the song upside-down by infusing a menacing pulsing-synth throughout it’s run adding a sense of danger to the original track. Click HERE to grab the free download.

Moko – “With You” [New Track!!]

The exceptionally talented UK songstress MOKO is back yet again with another smashing, 90s-inspired dance tune called, “With You.” The track, produced by Two Inch Punch  is a thunderous summer groove with pitched up vocal cuts and a thick bass that shares the same energetic house vibe as her previous single, “Your Love.” We love this!

“With You” and “Your Love” are both taken from MOKO’s upcoming GOLD – EP out September 8th!

Iggy Azalea & Rita Ora – “Black Widow” [Official Video]

 Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora channel Tarantino’s Kill Bill  in the video for “Black Widow”!

As I prepared to completely dismiss this I thought… in the words of O-Ren Ishii, “Silly Caucasian girl likes to play with Samurai swords”  but as the video progressed I found myself really enjoying the video. There are some funny moments by the woman playing Iggy’s boss and the cameos by Michael Madsen, T.I. and Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas)  are really great too. And both, Iggy and Rita look quite amazing as sword-wielding femme fatales. As a fan of Anime and Tarantino; I can’t help but grin at Black Widow, baby!

Thoughts?!

“Black Widow” is taken from Iggy’s debut album, The New Classic  out now.

Ella Eyre – “Comeback” [New Single]

London soul songstress, Ella Eyre continues to cause waves in the music scene thanks in part to her unique style and intense, powerful vocals. Back in early July we premiered her euphoric track If I Go, now the 20-year-old singer returns with another soulful anthem called, ‘Comeback.’ The singer describes the song as the ultimate break up song when you’re trying to make someone feel better.”  And with it’s blunt, emancipating chorus We’ve all been played, we’ve all been hurt, just take the pain, let that motherfucker burn…”  we have no doubt in our minds that this tune will surely empower anyone to move on. Listen!

‘Comeback’ is taken from Ella’s upcoming debut album expected to drop later in the year.

Röyksopp & Robyn – “Monument” [Video Premiere]

Röyksopp & Robyn unveil the official video for the epic, “Monument” off their recently released mini album, ‘Do It Again.’ The interstellar video was directed by Max Vitali who also directed Roby’s Dancing On My Own, Call Your Girlfriend, Hang With Me, Indestructible  and Be Mine.

Max Vitali: “The video is about exploring the space around you and in you and finding your own space within it all. Half real, half fantasy. The way I see film is as a hybrid of technology and emotions, and hopefully there’s an artistic vision there as well. In a way that is what Röyksopp & Robyn also do, they merge something real with something computer generated to create bigger landscapes than possible without the help of technology.”
