    Ruthven – Evil / Fabiano Palladino – Mystery

    Last time we wrote about Jai and A.K. Paul we were glad they were back and they were just starting with their “Paul Institute”, which is somewhat like a label. But then it went quiet again for a year and a half.. Until two weeks ago when two tracks appeared by two separate London based […]

  • Eefje de Visser – Wakker (ZES Remix)

    Eefje de Visser – Wakker (ZES Remix)

    Eefje de Visser’s second full length Nachtlicht came out in 2016 but recently she’s been releasing remixes of tracks of that same album. The latest is an excellent dark and dreamy remix of “Wakker” by Dutch producer ZES. No more words needed, just listen:

  • Petit Biscuit

    Petit Biscuit

    French producer Petit Biscuit has a new album out. It features collaborations with Lido and Panama amongst others. Presence, as the album’s titled, is the follow-up to a bunch of singles and 2016’s self-titled EP. “Sunset Lover” was a hugely successful track taken from that EP. Mehdi Benjelloun is the producer’s real name and he […]

  • Lindstrøm feat. Jenny Hval

    Lindstrøm feat. Jenny Hval

    Every once in a while you hear a track that’s hypnotizing and mesmerizing. “Bungl (Like A Ghost)” by Oslo based producer (Hans Peter) Lindstrøm is such a track. With spoken-word like whispered vocals by Jenny Hval and the dry beats and hi-hats, it’s kind of a weird and offbeat track. It’s an energising jam, with […]

    [:en]Common Body – Luck of the Draw[:nl]Common Body[:]

    Remember JUCE? The funky pop/R&B group that took us back to the days when TLC and the likes used to rule the airwaves? (Even their music videos were styled like they were a group of the 90’s). The group unfortunately fell apart when lead singer Chalin Barton moved out to Hawaii. (Chalin says the band […]

  • Dwen – Deadard

    Dwen – Deadard

    Dwen are a mysterious London act with a sound drawing influences from acts like Bibio, Cocteau Twins, Jam City, Toro Y Moi, Mount Kimbie, LA Priest.. Sounds good on paper right? Well it does on your speakers as well. They made their debut with two tracks, “Deadard” and “Ponytail”, and they’re both available as a […]

  • Holiday Party – I’m Still Here

    Holiday Party – I’m Still Here

    [:en]Holiday Party are a Brisbane based indie/electro-pop collective (founded by Luke McDonald and Mel Tickle, recently joined by Scott Bromiley) who released their first single “I’m Still Here” about two months ago. They are no newcomers however, having worked with a lot of Australian acts. Among their influences they name artists like The Avalanches, Beach […]

  • Yumi Zouma – Depths (Pt. 1)

    Yumi Zouma – Depths (Pt. 1)

    Ah, Yumi Zouma return with new music! The New-Zealand indie-pop are releasing singles in the build up to ‘Willowbank’, the band’s second full length album (not counting this year’s album in which they cover Oasis’s (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? in its entirety) which will come out on October 6. Yumi Zouma released their first […]

  • Blue Hawaii – No One Like You

    Blue Hawaii – No One Like You

    Blue Hawaii are back with new material since 2013’s album Untogether (if you don’t count the double A-side “Get Happy / Get Happier” released in 2014). You might know them thanks to their successful and dreamy singles “Try To Be” and “In Two”. The Montreal based duo Raphaelle “Ra” Standell-Preston and Alex “Agor” Cowan return […]

  • The Radio Dept. – Teach Me To Forget EP

    The Radio Dept. – Teach Me To Forget EP

    [:en]The Radio Dept. are no newcomers. The Swedish ‘dream-pop’ band have been around since 1995. Throughout the years there have been some line-up changes, but founding member Johan Duncanson has been the creative force together with Martin Larsson since 1998. We only discovered the band when they released 2010’s single “Heaven’s On Fire”. A catchy […]

  • Kllo – Virtue

    Kllo – Virtue

    It’s been two years since we did a feature on Kllo with their UK Garage influenced electronic-pop. Back when you still spelled their name with only one ‘L’. Since then, the Australian duo made up of cousins Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul have been steadily releasing more singles and gaining a bigger audience. The latest […]

  • Klyne – Self titled album

    Klyne – Self titled album

    The first time we wrote about this Dutch duo was when they were still going under the name of Nick Klein. The second time was when they just had their name changed to the more international friendly Klyne. Now, two years later, singer Nick Klein and producer Ferdous Dehzad have just released their debut self titled […]

  • GL – Destiny/Reflect

    GL – Destiny/Reflect

    We wrote about Australian duo GL in July of last year when they had just released their debut album Touch. This time around they will release a double A-side single on limited vinyl titled “Destiny” and “Reflect”. We are such suckers for this retro and awesomely catchy electronic pop sound. These songs should be incorporated […]

  • Com Truise – Iteration

    Com Truise – Iteration

    Yes! We’re back from a short holiday and right on time for Com Truise’s new album Iteration. It’s the third full-length album by the producer who’s real name is Seth Haley and the follow-up to 2011’s Galactic Melt and 2012’s In Decay. Although that last one was actually a compilation of unreleased material so this […]

    [:en]Lapalux x JFDR – Flickering[:]

    [:en]Besides having “Marilyn” by Mount Kimbie on repeat we can’t stop listening to one of Lapalux’s latest tracks. “Flickering” is a beautiful collaboration with Icelandic musician JFDR aka Jófríður Ákadóttir. It’s minimalistic, dreamy, dark and mesmerising. We’re fascinated. The producer’s third album ‘Ruinism’ will be out on June 30. [:]

  • Neil Frances – Dumb Love

    Neil Frances – Dumb Love

    If there’s one song you need to listen to this week it’s “Dumb Love” by LA based duo Neil Frances (all caps on Spotify). Not much more info on this, besides that this is the first track ever by them (they used to write songs for female vocalists though) and it’s upbeat and groovy!

  • Tora – Another Case

    Tora – Another Case

    Australia’s quartet Tora have an album coming up and are sharing the first tracks taken from that album. It includes the excellent “Another Case” which is slightly more upbeat than what we’re used to from them. Prior to this song they released “Amsterdam” but I personally wasn’t impressed by it. “Another Case” makes up for […]

  • Aloof – Trust Me

    Aloof – Trust Me

    Copenhagen based producer/multi-instrumentalist Aloof released his new track “Trust Me” today. Aloof has already built up a reputation in the Danish hip-hop scene. With this new release he’s going into a more electronic dance oriented direction. The result is delightful, trust me! “Trust Me” is out now on Back To Future Sounds
