Moyka carries a powerful synth pop sound in a way that Norwegian talent only can. Watching this kid live felt like a polished cross between Robyn and Ingrid, only with a naivete charm which makes the whole sound so unique.
Hozier‘s got industry buzzing like mad since ‘Take Me To Church’ went viral. I was lucky enough to watch him live last night in London. The voice is incredible, and the sound is intense and captivating.
If you’ve managed to get tickets for his upcoming summer tour then you’ll experience something very special and powerful. If you haven’t, you’ll hear so much from this man.
Hozier releases new EP ‘From Eden’ on 31st March through Rubyworks.
Managed to catch three cool acts at the Lexington yesterday evening as part of the monthly Ja Ja Ja night. Jaakko Eino Kalevi has a certain ‘Bryan Ferry goes hipster’ vibe around, making some beats that manage to sound edgy and easy to listen to. YAST played their trademark Swedish indie sound, and Nabiha went all out with her unique and infectious blend of RnB and pop.
One of my favourite new artists of recent months, Alex Clare played The Lexington tonight in London and was really good. Championed by Diplo, every song played tonight was crafted with precision and Clare’s rough, soulful voice gives it an edge that’s just so cool right now. I didn’t expect him to be so shy, and the way he smiled kept reminding me of an old friend. I want more. Again, apologies for the shit quality of the pics- I think it’s time for a new camera…
There’s something so brilliant about Active Child– his music catches you from the beginning and draws you through a weird and wonderful world of complex beats and choir sounds. And the harp he carried around with him is simply cool. Active Child was playing with a couple of other bands tonight (Phantogram and MOPP) although I chose to only see him perform.
I’ve raved on about this guy for ages but this week I saw Alex Gardner live for the first time. We came in a bit late so only managed to catch a couple of songs but this little man can SING! If you get a chance to catch him then do it. I can’t get 0ver how young he is yet have such an amazing voice.
