The Knocks get uncomfortable in ‘Comfortable’ video

image

One of the funkiest duo’s on the planet and a fave of mine, The Knocks, have finally come up with some spanking good original material. ‘Comfortable' serves as the title track off their new EP (Out now!) and has gotten an awesome video through Majestic. The short sees the boys get very awkward with a bunch of very well yet scantily clad women. There are some strange and alarming moments throughout this video, but it makes for a compelling watch. It all looks fantastic, the song is SUPERB and I encourage all of you to buy/listen to the Comfortable EP right now. SPOILER: It’s good.

Kele bumps up the star power on VV Brown’s ‘Faith’

image

One of my favorite tracks off of VV Brown's 'Samson & Delilah' magnus last year was 'Faith’. The sincere electroballad about the trials and tribulations of a relationship really struck with me on first listen. Luckily, the song has not been forgotten and has been resuscitated by Kele Okereke (he has something to do with that little band Bloc Party) for a single release. Both singers’ voices intertwine in this gorgeous piece of electronic pop and it really works. The single will be released on April 28th, but listen to it already below. And because that’s still a wee bit into the future, check out VV’s album in the meantime.

Schizophrenic pop from Sophie makes my day

How could I let this slip past my radar. A fresh new face in pop arises with producer/singer Sophie. We have had a pop Sophie for years, but now that she is in ‘get on with it’-land, we can make room for another one. Just ‘Sophie’ without any surname, but with some AMAZING tunes. One of the few songs on her Soundcloud account is called ‘Bipp' and it is bloody fantastic. It sounds very mental and choppy at first but I am really feeling it. It creates the euphoria other electropop creates by working up to a drop and then let it all hang out, but this one has no breakdown, just choppy synths. I love me some synths, great hooks and some beautiful vocals, Sophie provides it all! Backed by Zane Lowe, Pitchfork and Dazed, this track is already everywhere. Check out 'Bip' below!

Could Charli XCX be the one we have been waiting for?

After exploding into the blogosphere last year with the amazing ‘Nuclear Seasons’, Charli XCX has been working up a storm. After collabs with Alex Metric and Starkey, she has released the video for her next solo smash ‘You’re the One’. She is everything Natalia Kills could have been, an Ellie Goulding on crack, maybe? I don’t know how to describe it, but I really really love this track. After one listen, it’s already inside my head. That is a good thing!

Ronika never fails to deliver killer jams

The underground queen of 80s inspired electro-pop jams, Ronika, has teamed up with DJ/producer/wonderman Hervé on his latest single “How Could I Live Without You (Make It Right)”. It is an all hands aloft, get down with your cocktail in the air, summer jam that has no shame in repeating the same lyrics (henceforth the title) over and over again as its chorus. It just works. I love Ronika, I love everything Hervé has done, so this joint is pure gold. The video is very awesome indeed. This will be in my party playlist for years to come.

Franz Ferdinand x Sound of Arrows = Swiss Lips

Oh god, this is so good. Check out the electro, dance, indie-pop band Swiss Lips' latest single 'Danz’. It is so fine, and the video is also hilarious. Enjoy.

fuck yes!

I just stumbled upon this band "Tove Styrke" and they are really great. This song "Million Pieces" above can be described as “Lykke Li gone clubbing”, and I like it! I’m also uploading a more acoustic version of this song later. That post-chorus chanty bit is so catchy. Enjoy!
