Woodes is the moniker for 24-year-old Melbourne based producer, singer and songwriter Elle Graham, whose quick ascension into the limelight has caused many a head to turn. After the success of her debut solo single “Daggers & Knives” (over 120,000 views on YouTube and solid airplay on Triple j unearthed and FBi Radio), Woodes recently shared new track “The Thaw” which was co-written and co-produced by fellow Melbournian artist LANKS.
“The Thaw” is another powerfully beautiful track, which combines Graham’s poetic lyrics with a clever mix of textured synths and subtle beats. She is currently collaborating with local and international artists including Kilter, Milwaukee Banks, Set Mo, Kintaro, FØRD and Golden Vessel on some new tunes and she has a remix EP just out for “The Thaw”.
“Prettiest Virgin” is the first single from electro pop outfit Agar Agar. Recently signed to Cracki Records, the Paris-based duo consisting of singer Clara Cappagli and producer Armand Bultheel is putting the finishing touches to their debut EP, scheduled for September 2016.
“Prettiest Virgin” is a spellbinding 6-minute late night disco pop jam, laced with layers of icy synths and sleek minimal beats. Singer Clara lights up the dancefloor with her smooth and sultry vocals that tell the same old bittersweet story of unrequited love at the disco.
