BANKS – Serpentina
This album, this work of art, is nothing short of iconic (but of course, because we never get anything less from BANKS!). The throughline of this project is strength—even when she’s mourning or ruminating, like on the piano ballad “I still Love You”; she ultimately arrives at a place of self-assuredness. You can hear the rawness and realness in each and every track.
See BANKS on tour this summer!
Lizzy McAlpine – five seconds flat
Lizzy McAlpine’s sophomore album ‘five seconds flat’ exhibits her use of evocative lyrics to create a story arc about heartbreak. The 14-track album features an incredible lineup of contributors including Grammy Award winners FINNEAS and Jacob Collier, as well as Ben Kessler and Laura Elliott. Songs like “doomsday” and “hate to be lame” feat. FINNEAS really tug on the heartstrings, whew!
And she didn’t just give us music. The album is accompanied by a short film that was brought to life with the help of the award winning photographer/videographer/visionary Gus Black. It’s a must see – check it out here!
Tom Misch – Supershy
Tom Misch’s electronic alter-ego project Supershy is here! The release, which is a double A-side single ‘Happy Music / Something On My Mind’, was inspired by his love for electronic dance music and desire to “explore new sounds”. We can’t wait to see what else comes from this new domain of the Tom Misch Universe.
The official video for “Happy Music” is out now, watch it here!
bbno$ – “mathematics”
Quintessential bbno$ = fun, upbeat, and energetic. His latest track “mathematics” is a taste of his new sound, jam-packed with quick flows and a nonchalant, cool, rap technique. The music video, directed by Shiraz, is anything but boring. It’s a mirror of his authentic self, filled with his charismatic persona humorously. Watch it here, we guarantee you’ll enjoy!
The Vaccines – Planet of the Youth
The Vaccines’ newest EP Planet of the Youth is the follow up to their recent Top 5 UK Album Back in Love City. The six-song EP exists in that same world while reflecting on the inevitable nostalgia and sadness of growing older and increasingly feeling like an alien, out of place on the Planet of the Youth.
