SLOW CLUB – COMPLETE SURRENDER (Pop – UK)

Slow Club
Slow Club is Sheffield boy-girl duo Charles Watson (guitar, vocals, piano) and Rebecca Taylor (drums, vocals, guitar). Created in 2005, the band signed with Moshi Moshi Records and released their debut album Yeah So in 2009.

In 2014 they produced their most ambitious and complete record yet, Complete Surrender, touching on everything from Motown to the immaculately produced pop of the 1970s. Equally influenced by Frankie Valli and David Bowie the album sounded like an instant classic, something so familiar and timeless it’s difficult to believe it wasn’t recorded 30 years ago.

LISA MITCHELL – WARHOL (Indie/Alt – Australia)

Lisa Mitchell
Australian singer songwriter Lisa Mitchell released her third album, Warriors, in October 2016. Sonically different from her previous works, this new LP was produced by Eric Dubowsky (who has worked with Flume and Chet Faker). “We really got rid of a lot of guitar and piano in this album,” she explains, “I was interested in someone doing a different thing than what I’d done in the past.”

Directed by award-winning Australian director and writer, Vanessa Gazy, the video for “Warhol” is Part One of a story that spans over both this song and “Warriors”. Watch both videos below!

WOODES – POISON (Alt/Pop – Australia)

Woodes

Melbourne based producer, singer and songwriter Elle Graham, better known as Woodes, has only been around for about two years but her beautifully crafted songs have caused many a head to turn. After the success of super catchy single “The Thaw”, the young artist released a 6-track self-titled EP featuring older tracks and dazzling new tune “Poison”, which was co-produced by Brisbane artist Golden Vessel and Melbourne’s own Elkkle

A few days ago Woodes shared “Bonfire” via her SoundCloud. This new unreleased track was written, co-produced, performed and arranged by Woodes and Rob Kleiner, with additional percussion by Elkkle. It combines Graham’s poetic lyrics with a clever mix of tribal drums and subtle synths.
