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. Serena Isioma – ‘Meadows in Japan’
Brandishing an elegant R&B sound which dissects aspects of her Nigerian-American heritage and Chicago roots, young Serena Isioma is a breathe of fresh air. The rising alternative star recently released her mixtape ‘The Leo Sun Sets’, an eclectic project that pairs golden flavours of lo-fi bedroom pop with a neo-soul twist. Taken from the EP, ‘Meadows in Japan’ shows exactly what Isioma is all about.
2. Yung Skrrt x AOBeats – ‘On the Worst Night’
Making a statement with their collaborative ‘Casual Racer’ EP, LA-based rapper-producer Yung Skrrt and Soundcloud sensation AOBeats know how to make a memorable track or two. Despite their varied musical backgrounds and styles, ‘On The Worst Night’ demonstrates the pair’s unique chemistry as Skrrt’s catchy flows blend precisely with AO’s 808-laden production.
3. Anna in the Attic – ‘If The World Ends’
Anna in the Attic’s inherently DIY attitude makes her dreamy creations of confessional bedroom pop even more sweet. The rising talent’s new release ‘If The World Ends’ is an intimate cut spanning glistening lo-fi guitar progressions and delicate introspective vocals.
4. L E M F R E C K – ‘Late’
Fuelled by the explosion of UK rap, rising lyricist L E M F R E C K decided to build on the musical foundations he built while producing in a local church where his dad was a Pastor. With a growing number of releases already under his belt, ‘Late’ opens proceedings on his new EP ‘Midnight Hour’ with unconventional wordplay and explosive bass-driven production.
5. WATA – ‘Pendulum’
WATA is a singer-songwriter and composer of Afro-futuristic music with a haunting vocal presence. Putting her ethereal melodies to good use on ‘Pendulum’, the musician creates other-worldly soundscapes with a thoughtful blend of culture, sound and lyrical adeptness.
