Your weekly round-up of the best new releases and emerging artists from the past week. Featuring five minutes of anxious madness from ELOHIM and a brand new one from Banks.
ELOHIM: Skinny Legs
Back with a bang seems a bit of an understatement here… One of our favourite artists to emerge of recent follows her Louis The Child collaboration Love Is Alive with Skinny Legs, a five minute raucous and jittering noise-pop gem. Keep your eyes on this lady, it’s all uphill from here for her.
Oscar King: Bring It All Back
We had the joy of premiering Oscar King’s debut track just yesterday, concluding that the Londoner’s ominous first effort “stands out as a highlight amid the dark electro-pop landscape.” Check out the premiere and our interview with the artist right here.
Banks: Crowded Places
Everybody loves a good surprise release. It’s even better when it’s dark pop goddess Banks that unexpectedly drops a new track, given second full length The Altar is still well under a year old. To top it all off, Jack Antonoff is the man behind this one so there’s not really much to go critiquing…
LANY: It Was Love
Los Angeles trio LANY slow it down for this spacious, synth driven ballad. Whilst we’re a little bit too much on the same wavelength as what we’ve heard for them before, this newbie is still enough to get us pretty excited for their debut. Check out our recent chat with the band right here.
Oh Wonder: Lifetimes
Second Oh Wonder track in a week? That’ll do just nicely. Only a week on front the duo’s returning single Ultralife, we’ve gifted with a second taster off their sophomore record of the same name and, boy, this one’s a good’n. We’re glad to have them back.
