Last year Liverpool band HAARM made an amazing debut with the breakbeat driven cut ‘Foxglove’. They then followed-up with ‘In The Wild’ which was a nod to the 90s rave period. Now making their return with track number three, their latest single ‘Valentine’, the group continue to fan the flames as their sound etches closer to an electronic pop side, as delicate paired vocals mix with psych keys and upbeat drum lays.
With their debut album ‘Lovers’ right around the corner, landing September 8, Anna Of The North now unveil another single taken from the LP entitled ‘Money’. Using slick synths as the foundation to the sparkling pop piece, Anna Lotterud sends a warning to someone who is dating a girl who is only after one thing…the good old dinero. The tune follows the duo’s previous cut ‘Someone’ which was shared last month. Have a listen below.
Chad VanGaalen is set to release his sixth LP ‘Light Information’ on September 8 via the Sub Pop imprint. As someone who is no stranger to the darker themes of life, VanGaalen’s latest single ‘Mind Hijacker’s Curse’ can ironically be translated into a sort of hopeful idea of allowing one to experience through the mind of another. Couple this with a spacey, semi-haunting indie palette and you have another musical roller coaster packaged with Chad VanGaalen’s imprint all over it.
Judging from all of the tracks that Ghostpoet has shared taken from his new LP ‘Dark Days & Canapés’, we’re definitely in for a pleasurable ride. Whilst his lead single ‘Immigrant Boogie’ found the South London native tapping into a post-punk sound, his latest song ‘Dopamine If I Do’ is a jazzy and gorgeously constructed piece flowing with lush strings and piano play that reflects Ghostpoet’s continued growth as a well-rounded artist.
Carmen Villain and experimental art-pop star Jenny Hval have come together for the haunting track ‘Borders’. Dark in production, the mood of the song brilliantly coincides with the climate of these modern times in which Villian touches on – racism, fear and the idea of border patrols. Ghostly vocals float around the tune as Hval adds her magic to the chorus, making this nothing short of a brilliant piece of work.
Swedish artist Summer Heart has shared his latest single titled ‘Follow’. Taken from his forthcoming LP ‘101’, the track is a chilled and soothing pop piece with a bit of an upbeat spark that again is flows with a cool brisk like the autumn season.
Berlin-based singer and musician Victoria Trunova aka KOY is one of our fave artists. With an etheral sound that straddles the line of electronica, pop and even new wave, she has now unveiled the video for her single ‘Heat’. A dedication of sorts to classic sci-fi and horror flicks, the visuals are ripe with clips of women screaming, robots and silhouttes of KOY herself, all packaged in VHS-style effects. Have a look.

London-based singer Bella McKendree makes music that is touching and heartfelt, delivered from the depths of her soul. Also a pianist, her graceful flair for bringing forth songs that blossom with beauty spearheaded by her angelic voice, has critics throughout the press captured in the palm of her hands.
Zola Jesus has unveiled the extremely haunting visuals for her single ‘Exhumed’. Directed and shot by Jacqueline Castel, the stark black and white video features Zola Jesus in an almost ghostly form in the woods whilst emerging from the ground, seemingly to represent a burial of sorts. Intense flashes and quick cuts add to the eerie feel of the video with the goth style of the music itself coincide extremely well. The song is taken from Jesus’ forthcoming album ‘Stridulum’, out September 8th.
Tricky will release his 13th LP entitled ‘Ununiform’ this September on False Idols/!K7. Interestingly enough, the Bristol-born, now Berlin-based artist has yet again joined forces with Martina Topley-Bird, who was instrumental in providing vocals on his early albums. With the pair reconnecting for the track ‘When We Die’, the video for the song has now been posted. Directed by Jenny Marie Baldoz, New York City is the backdrop as clips of various people, some who are down and out, are all portrayed in a humane light. Have a look.
