Watch: joan – try again

If you’re a geek about 90’s pop then this could be your summer anthem. Bursting with nostalgia but still feeling current.

Taken from the EP ‘cloudy’ which is now available on limited edition 12” vinyl via joan’s online store, where tickets to their special online live show on Saturday 8th August are also available.

New Music: Childe

A chilled and refined approach to indie electro pop from a new English talent and former BRIT school alum.

Childe

SG Lewis – Impact (with Robyn & Channel Tres)

This song is the highlight of my year… Period! Three of my biggest dance-pop artists coming together like this gives me hope for the rest of this cursed year.

Watch: will hyde – meant to be.

“There’s shades of light & also darkness, which is important for me to show as a contrast. Both are a part of me and both influence the music. My favourite shot is on the balcony at the end – we were filming in this big old mansion (an honour) & mid filming i decided to get up on the ledge and start boogie-ing.”

Greentea Peng – Hu Man

“‘Hu Man’ is an exploration of self and our attachment to identity, especially in this modern age. Hu Man is a war cry from the battlefield of mind, calling to the divine Mother to take this ego, take this head, to remove all these words and man made constructs and take me, take us,  back to centre. Back to oneness, forward to unity.”

Greentea Peng

Brandon – Elastic

I don’t want to live like this forever

Oh, it feels like bliss when we’re together

And darling you’re my only treasure

You know there’s nothing that could measure up

Brandon

New Music: Hamond

Conceptual and future-forward electronic pop from Houston.

“‘Outside’ was inspired by the feeling of anticipation you get when waiting for someone you’re in a new relationship with to come outside and meet you. They’re getting ready and you’re waiting with excitement, anxiety, and for that moment/night nothing else matters.”

Hamond

Watch: FVLCRVM – Stray Dogs

“The line between my self-reflection and self-absorption is really thin and the latter is generally the mother of all mental problems. So I guess the most important filter for potentially life-changing or destructing ideas is the brain’s attention centre. That’s where all the good and bad impulses live or just die out at the gates.”
