Four Tet revives his KH alias with 3LW sampling ‘Looking at Your Pager’
Incorporating talent from across the globe, check out our five Tracks of the Week taken from our meticulously-curated BRAND NEW playlist showcasing some of the most exciting up-and-coming talents around.
1. Lucy Tun – ‘314’
Where some artists managed to turn lockdown into a time for renewed motivation and focus, British-Burmese vocalist, producer and DJ Lucy Tun suffered from a stoop in creativity. Her latest single ‘314’ was the only piece of work she managed to make during those months of isolation, however, one listen is all it takes to realise no quality was sacrificed. Carving out her very own alt-dream pop sound, the rising songstress appears to open up on her feelings more than ever.
2. Cathedral Bells – ‘Fall into Place’
Formed in late 2018 by Matt Messore, Cathedral Bells is a dream pop band from Orlando, Florida. The group’s latest offering is a heady blend of shoegaze and post-punk, drawing inspiration from the likes of The Cure and My Bloody Valentine to helm a DIY sound so enticing we couldn’t leave it out of this week’s list.
3. Finches – ‘Ooooo’
Using their sophomore single to shift gears towards a floaty indie-pop landscape, up-and-coming South East London duo Finches are quickly leaving their mark in the local underground music circles. Entitled ‘Ooooo’, after the melodic backing vocals sprinkled throughout the chorus, the pair’s latest offering is a sign of what’s to come.
4. J18 – ‘Amor De Metro’
‘Amor De Metro’ is the latest single from rising Chilean talent J18, a promising singer-songwriter who cut her teeth releasing demos on Soundcloud since 2019 before developing a fan base for her music on TikTok. Typically an introverted person, J18 opens up about her feelings on the new track as she recounts those fleeting yet all-consuming feelings of love towards someone.
5. Tiiva – ‘TO GET BETTER’
For London-based singer and producer Tiiva, lockdown proved to be a time for creating new connections and and finding home in a new community of like-minded individuals. Their infectious new synth-pop track ‘TO GET BETTER’ embodies those grounding feelings of learning how to be yourself, carving out an ethereal electronic soundscape while at it.
