It’s been too long… Happiness resumes.
Released just in time for the weekend, here’s a new cut from Whilk & Misky.
Whilk & Misky go all western with this new release. Massive fan of these two chaps.
Another year of music comes to an end, and with it comes the annual Random List. I’ve listened to the good, the bad, and everything in between. As usual, Alfitude bucks the trend with blog ‘best of’ posts to come up with a random list of highlights from the past twelve months. For previous years, check this out.
Biggest Trend Of The Year
Best Use Of Drugs In Lyrics
The bulk of Tove Lo’s album involves songs about love, misunderstanding or heartbreak. All three of which are better understood via narcotics and general misdemeanours through her lyrics. In all fairness though, it’s done so well that it all seems to make sense in the end.
Best Song That Should Have Done Better
Best Use of Primary-School Instruments
This track from Made In Heights was perfectly ‘on-trend’ this year while still managing to sound super cute through using a bunch of sounds you probably haven’t heard since you were at school.
Most Epic Gig Of The Year
This was a tough one, but in retrospect, it has to be seeing Rag’N’Bone Man in London back in July. Big man, big voice, and an immense sound. I really hope 2015 is his year. Speaking of gigs, follow the Alfitude Instagram for pictures, if you like.
Funkiest Scandi Act Of The Year
Danish Scarlet Pleasure have long been a favourite of mine, and 2014 saw the release of an EP which I’ve listened to far more than I’d like to admit.
Happiest Yet Moodiest Song Of The Year
This song from T.O.L.D is one of my favourites this year. Only because it’s such a headf**k to listen to. It’s sad and dreary, but it’s happy and uplifting at the same time. It’s confusing and beautiful. Kinda like life. Deep…
Most Exciting Major Debut
Seinabo Sey. I can’t fault anything this new soul powerhouse is doing right now.
Best Song To Make Babies To
Huntar managed to come up with the sexiest song of the year (in my reckoning, anyway).
Hottest Scandi Act
Swede Snoh Aalegra made a big impact both across Eurpoean and American blogs this year with her unique mix of RnB and soul.
One To Watch
I’m 99% certain that Years & Years will be 2015’s biggest newbie. It’s as good as British pop gets right now.
Whilk & Misky’s full EP which is available via the band’s own imprint Dirty Charm Records.
The next track from Whilk & Misky’s anticipated debut EP, out in December on their own imprint Dirty Charm Records.
One of my favourite things right now, Whilk & Misky show off some visuals for ‘Darklands’. ‘First Sip’ EP is coming soon on the band’s own imprint Dirty Charm Records… Can’t wait.
Damn… I can’t get enough of Whilk and Misky. Share the song with your mates and we get to hear another track soon.
Mellow electro soul that’s just so good. Get it for free here.
This is one of those sounds that’s really hard to describe, but is so good it just has to be listened to. Sexy voice and a sultry, dark beat. Check out here.
