HERHABITS | SLIP AWAY
Brooklyn-based duo Her Habits – formerly known as Foxe Basin – have quietly debuted new track Slip Away, a classy dream-pop number with some spine-tingling vocals from singer Joanie Wolkoff. Taken from their forthcoming debut EP Northerner, we’re eagerly awaiting what’s coming next.
LORDE | YELLOW FLICKER BEAT
Produced by Adele collaborator Paul Epworth, Lorde’s contribution to the Hunger Games soundtrack feels like an extension of her acclaimed 2013 debut, thanks to its rattling drums and moody, atmospheric vibe that the talented New Zealander has become renowned for. Here’s hoping Epworth has something similar in store for Adele’s soon to be released third album.
DEJA | TRY AGAIN (AALIYAH REMIX)
Although Aaliyah may be gone, her musical talents have continued to live on and inspire countless others in the music industry. Now, her hit Try Again has been reworked by Melbourne-based duo Deja, who’s remarkable electronic take on the song has breathed new life into a 14-year-old (!) classic.
SHY FOR SHORE | LOVE, AGAIN
This anthemic slice of bittersweet synth-pop has put Shy For Shore firmly on our ‘Ones to Watch’ list for 2015 thanks to its first-rate 80s inspired production and blissful middle-eight.
BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB | HOME BY NOW
After achieving a Number One album and a Mercury Music Award nomination, Bombay Bicycle has unveiled Home Boy Now, the fifth track taken from their fourth album. The Pete Gabriel-esque track is one of the LP’s best thanks to its bombastic production and moody vocals.
