Your weekly round-up of the best new releases and emerging artists from the past week. Featuring new St Vincent (!!!) and another impeccable Anna Of The North track to stick on repeat for a week.
St Vincent: New York
Suprise! Queen of absolutely everything, St Vincent, has dropped a new track and you should most definitely be as excited as us about it. Whether New York is merely a teaser for bigger things or the lead cut from her as-yet-untitled fifth record, we are so here for Annie Clark taking a gospel direction…
Anna Of The North: Someone
What. A. Woman. With debut full-length Lovers set with a September release date, Anna Lotterud and production whizzkid sidekick Brady Daniell-Smith smother new cut Someone in enough 80s vibes to last the rest of the year and continue to reign as one of Scandi-pop’s latest and greatest.
Samantha Urbani: Go Deeper
Those with a certain taste for 2011 indie will easily distinguish Samantha Urbani as the former vocalist of punk/pop/everything in-between collective Friends (yes, I’m His Girl, that one), a band so intriguing and proficient that the heartache caused by a lack of follow-up to debut LP Manifest! is still very real. Now branching out with solo material, Go Deeper solidifies that Urbani, one of the 2010’s greatest frontwoman, can most definitely strive when on her own.
LANY: Super Far
After what seems a lifetime and-then-some, LANY have finally gifted the world with their debut record after conquering half the internet to round them up for their fanbase. Less than 24 hours of release and Super Far has already earnt itself ‘standout’ status from an LP teeming with loved-up bops.
The Desert: Just Get High
The debut track from duo The Desert is as sultry and brooding as this Friday is going to get, mixing brooding guitar with Gina Leonard’s gorgeously subtle vocals for a track that effortlessly oozes ‘cool’. Think Laura Marling if she’d ever befriended a drum machine…
Astrid S: Bloodstream
Everybody’s new favourite pop star has dropped a bloody brilliant new EP, proving once more that the Norweigan artist really does possess some of 2017’s finest pop numbers. Take a listen to Bloodstream below:
One of our Introducing artists from our Issue 2 of HISKIND rises to the top once more, living up to her much-buzzed hype as effortlessly as it is to fall totally in love with her R’n’B/pop blend.
