Listen: Violet Skies – ‘Jealousy’

You might know Welsh electro-pop artist Violet Skies from her appearance on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury, or perhaps her mighty late-2013 single ‘How The Mighty.’ Across the past year she’s been working on new material and what she’s emerged with is something a bit more restrained and much like many of her female…

Listen: Kaleida – ‘It’s Not Right’

Together, Christina Wood and Cicely Goulder, who perform under the name Kaleida, have amassed over 10 million streams of their debut EP Think. Yeah, that’s right. 10 million. One. Zero. Million. That’s quite a lot by our calculations, yet Kaleida might not be a name too many people are familiar with. It’s not right. Oh,…

Watch: Dreller – ‘Control’

Space! The final frontier. At least it would be if London-based multi-instrumentalist and all-round filmmaking pro Dreller hadn’t already got there. His latest track ‘Control’ is everything you want from a bleep-laden slice of electropop with hazy beats; like Metronomy at their most psychedelic and danceable, Dreller has made a song that makes high-pitched synth…

When the fine people at Stereogum chatted to Washington DC/ Los Angeles-based trio Misun a little while back, they professed a deep, deep love for The Strokes and Julian Casablancas. Well, if you were expecting some extremely rough sounding vocals and a squall of Albert Hammond Jr’s guitar riffs after that then you’ll be sorely…

News… Klyne Share New Song ‘Waiting’

The last single by Dutch electropop duo Klyne – ‘Closer’ – had an accompanying video that would send anyone with a fear of clowns running and screaming to the hills; in it, a bizarro Ronald McDonald decided it’d be a good idea to body-pop his way through the woods in the creepiest manner possible. Yeah….

News… HONNE Share Title Track From New EP ‘Gone Are The Days’

HONNE have already made it clear that they love the jobs we hate, though it’s difficult to believe that touring around the world peddling an infectious brand of electro pop is something that we’d turn our noses up at. By releasing a string of taut singles and an EP – that also happened to feature…
