FALLULAH – SOCIAL CLUB (Indie/Pop – Denmark)

Fallulah

Danish electropop sensation Fallulah is breaking new ground with “Social Club”, her newest single sprinkled with snappy hand claps and powered by a catchy-as-hell chorus. Having entranced the Danish music scene with her first two albums The Black Cat Neighbourhood (2010) and Escapism (2013), Fallulah remains one of the most underrated Scandinavian artists outside her native Denmark.

With “Social Club”, which was written in one go sitting in her friend’s kitchen in LA, she delivers the kind of infectious track that will blow your recommended daily intake of punchy pure pop goodness. Produced with the help of Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, FKA Twigs) and recorded in London, this is the first taste of Fallulah’s upcoming third studio album, set to drop in early 2016.

LITTLE BOOTS – WORKING GIRL (SynthPop – UK)

Little Boots

Victoria Hesketh, aka Little Boots, unveiled her new album Working Girl a couple of days ago to generally positive reviews (4 **** from Q Magazine, The Times, The Telegraph). This third full-length is also quite a statement for the synthpop diva turned business woman who, having left behind the major label machine, now runs her own label On Repeat Records. Hence the title and the song “Working Girl”, which was written with fellow On Repeat associate Tom Aspaul and one of the UK’s most sought after producers Grades.


This new album was produced by Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco, Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Lukens, MNDR‘s Pete Wade, and Com Truise. Filled with her signature icy synths, airy vocals and well-crafted catchy melodies, the 13-song LP might not be an extremely adventurous album but it delivers the kind of sugar pop with hints of nineties dance music one expects from Little Boots.

The Working Girl Tour kicked off in style with a sold-out London show last week, featuring special guest Femme. The tour will be continuing across the USA starting in LA and closing in Washington, calling in San Francisco, New York and Boston on the way.

KUCKA – DIVINITY (ElectroPop – Australia)

Kucka

Kučka began as a solo bedroom project for Perth-based vocalist and producer Laura Jane Lowther. By carefully piecing together found sounds, delicate beats, industrial glitches and layered vocals, she created a unique combination of ambient pop and experimental electronica. More structured tracks formed, resulting in her 2012 self titled debut EP and culminating in breakout single “Divinity”.


Now Kučka has gained a reputation in her hometown for her forward-thinking poptronica and dazzling live shows, featuring Jake Steele (Injured Ninja) on analog synths and Katie Campbell (Catlips) on live beats. Check out Kučka’s brand new tune (premiered today!) “Flux 98”, the third single from the Unconditional EP out 18th August 2015 on Midnight Feature (also home to Elizabeth Rose).

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.
