Co-produced by Symons and Wouter Souvereyns, Warhola’s new single “Jewels” features Wouter Souvereyns on bass, guitar and live percussion and Moreno Claes on bass.

For the video, Danish director Anders Malmberg created a dark universe inhabited by bejewelled gymnasts. Check it out below!

OSCAR & THE WOLF – THE GAME (Alt/Indie – Belgium)

Oscar & The Wolf

After completing a sold tour in their home country of Belgium and filling up Antwerp’s Sportpaleis Arena with 20,000 fans, Oscar & The Wolf returns with new single “The Game”, out now on Play It Again Sam. The song was co-produced by Noah Breakfast (Tunji Ige, Christine And The Queens) and it features the kind of looped synths and dramatic beat drops frontman Max Colombie explored in the band’s debut album Entity, only a shade darker this time around.

Speaking about “The Game”, Colombie explained: “The track does build on the spherical electro sound of Entity. However I feel like it’s evolved to a late night remix of that sound. It’s grittier, darker and sexier but still about relationships and doubt. Ultimately I’d describe it as tears on the dance floor in the dirty twerk remix.”
