  • The Night VI – Wonderlust

    Amazing when new music sounds instantly timeless.  Wonderlust is the new single from pop sixpiece The Night VI, picking up from first single Sienna, which is also below.  The new song will be released on 22 July via Duly Noted, and there’s a celebratory live show at Hackney’s Oslo before then on 18 June.

  • FAMY – Ava

    It’s been 18 months since I covered French-but-London-based Famy, but here they are with a soaring new single.  Out on 21 July through Transgressive, Ava hails from a forthcoming debut out later in the year.  The fourpiece are headlining the Lexington on 30 July.  The also-excellent Febueder are among the support.

  • U.V. – Cuts

    Some days I feel so antisocial.  I hover on dark stairs until my flatmates have vacated the kitchen below; I cross the street to avoid meeting someone I vaguely know.  My phone rings and I just gaze at it until the vibrating stops.  I cancel my evening plans by text, some lie or another, and ignore all subsequent messages.  I sit in a corner of my room and read until my neck hurts.

    Murky and seductive, Cuts is the most recent single by U.V.  U.V. being the co-project of writer/producer Jonjo Feather (previously featured on these pages here) and vocalist Zandra Klievens, ex-lead singer of The ABC Club.  They make the swirliest of synth pop songs, mysterious magic-carpet rides for your noggin, sultry sweet-nothings whispered into your impressionable ears.

  • TĀLĀ – On My Own In Hua Hin

    I’m now a fully-fledged, flully-fedged travel journalist.  As such, the idea of being on my own in Hua Hin – which is in Vietnam (subsequent correction: Thailand – spot the pratt), for the uninitiated – is quite appealing.  With her scratchy, dazed pop sound in full flow, TĀLĀ makes it sound pretty glamorous.  This is from the Iranian-descent singer’s debut EP, The Duchess, streaming right here.

  • JUCE – (H)ours

    This is the third pop-funk song by all-girl trio JUCE, but the first I’ve really liked; the grooviest so far.  Handy, then, that it’s available for free via Soundcloud.
