Brighton dream-pop specialists Nature TV share their new single “Hey Man” with Nice Guys. Straddling a line between the hazy suburbia of Real Estate and the waterside stillness of Nick Drake, the band’s latest offering sees them hone in on their ‘indie-pop’ sound, masterfully crafting a crescendo of effortlessly silky guitars and tender, dreamy vocals to perfection. With contemplative nostalgia and an emotive soundtrack of faded relationships, uncertainty and heartbreak taking centre stage throughout their music, the rising quartet is well-placed to capitalise on last year’s acclaimed ‘Lady Luck’ EP. Discussing the group’s upcoming single, frontman Guy Bangham stated: “ Hey Man is a song about wanting to know that the direction you’re going in life is the right one for you. Sometimes it feels like there are many things and many people in life who could lead you astray or tell you that you shouldn’t be following your passion. So this track is basically me trying to shut out all the noises and negative leeches out of my life and just keep on keeping on, even when it can be hard.”
Thom Gillies, aka Blue Material (former member of TOPS and co-founder of Vesuvio Solo), returns with a brand new groove for the ages, 'Statue in the Dark'. True to its influences and style, he delivers yet another groovy romantic song. Soft funky surges and disco whispers, Blue Material distils a swing that subtly electrifies the body. This synthetic peregrination haunted by a warm and sensual voice is bitten with emotion. With this pop with funk and disco bursts, this talented artist weaves an irresistible dancing canvas.
A Thousand Clouds is the follow-up EP to Emancipator and 9 Theory's highly-acclaimed 2019 collaboration, Cheeba Gold. After the success of their first EP, and how fun and organic the making of it was, the two west-coast electronic music producers set out to see if they could recreate that magic once again with 4 new songs. The two spent one week together at Emancipator's studio in the Oregon woods and went from a completely blankslate to this finished new EP in just 6 days. To keep in the spirit of Cheeba Gold this new EP, A Thousand Clouds, was also intended to be only 4 songs, be made quickly without overthinking it too much, and the track order of the songs is again the same order in which they were made. The end result is another unique, magical blend of electronic, downtempo, indie, and hip-hop that lives somewhere really special outside of what either artist would ever make on their own.
Tokyo founded, Los Angeles based outfit Honeywhip have been releasing track after stunning track and this new one is no execption. “Vacation” is a little ditty about very badly wanting to go on vacation. The fantasy of escape is strong right now and we dream about it every night, and daydream during the day.. but we're cooped up at home writing a song about it instead, and somehow that makes it all feel a little better.
From when he got his first multitrack recorder as a teenager, Jesper Ryom has been conveying moods through all kinds of genres of music. Over time, this has led the Berlin-based Dane to create a swirl of evocative, yet danceable atmospheres, drawing inspiration from hip hop and weaving in samples from an eclectic music collection. His sound is as emotive and climactic as the post rock that defined much of his musical upbringing, and while his music has been played for the dance floors around the world, his own private persona will rarely be found in clubs. It was 2010 that marked the beginning of a steadily growing catalogue of intricately assembled house tracks, conveying both buoyant dreams and melancholic moods. A homely perfectionist at heart, Jesper has made the rare choice of saying no to most gigs to focus instead on tracking down whichever sample or coincidental noise that can express the current state he is in – for the benefit of himself and his dedicated following.
