Listen: Cash + David – ‘Alright Now’

Londoners Tim Ross and Liz Lawrence got together to create a dance duo one day and decided to call themselves Cash + David. Sounds a bit like a cheesy 70s comedy group doesn’t it? Even the title of their latest track makes it sound like they’re going to be covering Free. But don’t let any…

Listen: Moon Tourists – ‘Dream’

It was hard not be grabbed by Kent-based synthpop trio Moon Tourists when they emerged last year with a string of singles, including the euphoric ‘Wait.’ Numerous spins later and England’s foremost celestial voyagers were sending us on a magical ride through their electropop galaxy and, frankly, we’ve not wanted to leave the tour. Their…

Listen: Great Pagans – ‘Call of the Void’

Back in 2014 Brighton-based quartet Great Pagans released their debut LP Cupid In Error and it was a stabbing and often euphoric little indie rock record. A couple of years down the line and they’re starting to tease more new music, including ‘Call of the Void’ (which is coming out on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray, possibly…

Listen: Two People – ‘Fading’

The simple same of Two People is wonderfully unassuming and humble, though the team behind the music actually have a more established pedigree than their moniker suggests. Phoebe Cockburn and Joey Clough were once members of Melbourne dreampop outfit Snakadaktal, who called it a day in 2014 after just one album. Fans of the short-lived…

Listen: Mint Julep – ‘Slow Spiral’

Portland-based husband and wife duo Keith and Hollie Kenniff, better known as Mint Julep, have been pretty quiet since the release of their 2011 debut album Save Your Season. But, five years down the line, they’re getting ready to release their sophomore record Broken Devotion, and have shared an almost perfectly formed slice of synthpop…

Listen: ACRE TARN – ‘Dawn Faces’

Hailing from The Lake District, Anna-Louisa Ehterington began impressing with her dreampop tunes last year with ‘Flex’ and ‘Lanterns.’ As ACRE TARN she’s been leading anyone who’ll follow down a rabbit hole that leads to a synth wonderland that’s hypnotic but propulsive enough to still get you dancing. Her latest track ‘Dawn Faces’ doesn’t deviate…

Listen: Beaty Heart – ‘Flora’

South London trio Beaty Heart have been creating luscious and semi-experimental synthpop for some time now, but the latest teaser track to their new album might be the one that helps to push them into the limelight. ‘Flora’ is a textured piece of pop that’s structured around tight loops and a soaring vocal performance as…

News… Lauren Aquilina Shares New Track ‘Echoes’

“Nothing makes me happier than writing sad songs,” Lauren Aquilina says on her Twitter page. While her lyrics may focus on hard times, though, Lauren’s songs veer between showing that fragility and glorious synthpop vibes. Over the course of a series of EPs released while she was still at school, Aquilina set herself up as…

An Interview With… Naives

Thanks to some pretty impressive support slots for the likes of Mystery Jets and Friendly Fires, as well as a run of infectious synthpop singles, London-based trio Naives have set themselves up as ones to watch for 2016. They recently released their latest single ‘No Way,’ a harsher-sounding slice of electro that showed there was…

News… Kelly Lee Owens Covers Aaliyah’s ‘More Than A Woman’

Kelly Lee Owens isn’t one to stay in her comfort zone. Often compared to an early Bjork and with al the quirkiness and unpredictability that comes with it, Owens was last seen remixing tunes for fellow synth lover Jenny Hval but released her second single ‘Uncertain’ not so long ago and is gearing up to…
