GOLDEN VESSEL – SHOULDERS (Alt/RnB – Australia)

Golden Vessel

Rising Australian multi-talented artist Golden Vessel (born Max Byrne) is back with “Shoulders”, the latest preview of his second EP. Released in collaboration with Exist Recordings (a label founded by none other than The Kite String Tangle), “Shoulders” sees the Brisbane-based producer venture further into soundscapes mixing sultry R&B and future electronica with a sprinkling of hip-hop edge.

Influenced by Flume, James Blake or Chet Faker, Byrne’s smooth blend of bouncy down-tempo beats and wonky synths create the perfect backdrop for some seriously infectious vocals provided by fellow Brisbanites, and accomplished artists in their own right, Elkkle and Mallrat. A match made in heaven if there ever was one!

DIM SUM – RIGHT TRACK (House/Pop – France)

DIM SUM

French electronic artist/producer Dim Sum is back with new single “Right Track” featuring the gorgeous vocal stylings of French artist Nina Lili J. Brought to you by indie label Soundress, the song is the lead single and title track from Dim Sum’s forthcoming EP, which will be released just after the summer. “Right Track” combines the best of Dim Sum: sparkling electronic beats matched with alluringly featherlight vocals making for a delightfully summery tune, ideal for a late afternoon pool party.

Dim Sum first debuted 3 years ago with “Coucou Disco”, a nu disco anthem, and has maintained a strong profile in the electro/disco scene ever since. The new single follows the enormous success “High Love,” which has received over 5 million streams on Spotify alone.

In addition to originals, Dim Sum regularly remixes international talent, pumping out remixes for acts such as Ra Ra Riot, Poom and Christine & The Queens. Noteworthy remixes also include Odesza, Foster the People, Panama Wedding…

LANKS – VIET ROSE EP (Alt/Pop – Australia)

Lanks

Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Will Cuming, aka LANKS, recently released a 6-track extended play titled Viet Rose. Drifting between skittering electronic beats, sleek samples and more introspective piano-led numbers, this EP features previous singles “Bitter Leaf” and “Golden Age”, along with a handful of brand new tunes.

Cuming co-produced the 6-tracker alongside Andrei Eremin (Chet Faker, Hiatus Kaiyote) and invited friends and monumental talents Airling and Tom Iansek (one half of Big Scary) to contribute vocals on a couple of tracks.

Viet Rose is a beautiful display of heartfelt pop music which draws from LANKS’ rich sonic palette and will no doubt cement his reputation as one of the most gifted pop artist on the Aussie indie scene.

VÖK – FIGURE (Alt/Electro – Iceland)

Vök

Following two critically acclaimed EPs Tension (2013) and Circles (2015), Icelandic alternative electro band Vök will release their highly anticipated debut album Figure on April 28 via Nettwerk Records. Mostly written in their home studio and recorded with producer and Jack Garratt collaborator Brett Cox, the album sees the Reykjavík-based band taking their sound to new heights.

With influences ranging from from The Weeknd’s intimist RnB to Little Dragon‘s quirky electronica, Figure spans a whole spectrum of emotions and sounds, full of distorted pulses, near-whispered melodies, echoing guitars and dreamy hooks.

Vök took their time to deliver this first album but they are now ready to share it with their fans and the four-piece will be touring extensively throughout 2017 to bring it clubs and concert halls across Europe (Netherlands, Germany, Poland, France, UK and more).
