VIDEO : MOCKI – WEEKEND (SynthPop – Germany/UK)

Mocki

Formed of German production duo Sister and UK vocalist Domino, Mocki is the outcome of a project – unapologetically indulgent and fun – mixing their different musical backgrounds: punk rock, disco, soul and more. They recently delivered their debut single “Weekend”, an infectious three minute slice of bright, spiky pop with a huge hook, which they apparently put together in only six hours!

The Weekend EP features remixes from New-York based Jai Wolf, Rioux and Young Ruffian. It is also backed by a new video produced and directed by Lucas Posson with the participation of Frenzy.

TEI SHI – BASSICALLY (Synth/ElectroPop – US)

Tei Shi

On the heels of her triumphant SXSW debut (no less than 7 shows over 6 days) hotly tipped newcomer Tei Shi released her highly anticipated Verde EP on April 14th to overwhelmingly good reviews.

The Brooklyn-based singer also teamed up with Body Language to give her most recent single “Bassically” a new, more dancefloor-friendly twist. Gone is the bass-laden moodiness and dark undertones of the R’n’B influenced original. Tei Shi’s hypnotic vocals now shine through layers of synths and disco beats.

CITIZENS! – EUROPEAN SOUL (Indie – UK)

Citizens

British lads Citizens! have released their much awaited sophomore album European Soul, out now via Kitsuné! Profoundly positive, the band’s new album is a slick pop record of modern romanticism that leans towards the future. But now enough with the reading, check out their irresistibly dancy single “Waiting For Your Lover”!

Pop music is more than ever at the heart of the band’s spirit. Very few hearts resisted the rallying cry of their addictive singles “True Romance” and “Reptile”, not to mention their highly praised debut album Here We Are with its heady keyboards and catchy melodies, and now the four Londoners are establishing themselves as an unstoppable dance machine with European Soul.

CHROMATICS – IN FILMS (ItaloDisco/Sytnh – US)

Chromatics

Just a few weeks after their hazy and cinematic single “Just Like You”, synth disco four-piece Chromatics are sharing a brand new tune taken from their forthcoming album Dear Tommy. The song is called “In Films” and, as always, it is available as a free download from frontman Johnny Jewel’s SoundCloud.

Chromatics - In Films     

“In Films” is surprisingly cheery and bright considering the band’s back catalogue of moody slow jams and melancholic disco tunes. On this new track, Ruth Radelet’s vocals show unprecedented confidence laid over bouncy drums and upbeat guitars, not to mention the super catchy chanted hook. There is still no official release date for the new album but we know that it will include 17 tracks, among which are reworked versions of “Cherry” and “Camera”, two songs taken from the 2013 compilation album After Dark 2.
