VIDEO : MOCKI – WEEKEND (SynthPop – Germany/UK)

Mocki

Formed of German production duo Sister and UK vocalist Domino, Mocki is the outcome of a project – unapologetically indulgent and fun – mixing their different musical backgrounds: punk rock, disco, soul and more. They recently delivered their debut single “Weekend”, an infectious three minute slice of bright, spiky pop with a huge hook, which they apparently put together in only six hours!

The Weekend EP features remixes from New-York based Jai Wolf, Rioux and Young Ruffian. It is also backed by a new video produced and directed by Lucas Posson with the participation of Frenzy.

CITIZENS! – EUROPEAN SOUL (Indie – UK)

Citizens

British lads Citizens! have released their much awaited sophomore album European Soul, out now via Kitsuné! Profoundly positive, the band’s new album is a slick pop record of modern romanticism that leans towards the future. But now enough with the reading, check out their irresistibly dancy single “Waiting For Your Lover”!

Pop music is more than ever at the heart of the band’s spirit. Very few hearts resisted the rallying cry of their addictive singles “True Romance” and “Reptile”, not to mention their highly praised debut album Here We Are with its heady keyboards and catchy melodies, and now the four Londoners are establishing themselves as an unstoppable dance machine with European Soul.

Citizens

Back in 2011, alt pop outfit Citizens! experienced a meteoric rise to fame with their high-octane debut single, “True Romance”, released via cult Parisian label Kitsuné, and subsequent debut album, Here We Are, produced by Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos.


The London-based quartet is now gearing up for the release of their sophomore effort, European Soul, scheduled this April and in the meantime they have shared a video for first single “Lighten Up”. Released digitally in late 2014, the song was recorded as part of the album sessions with producer Laurent d’Herbecourt (whose credits include Phoenix) and features remixes by Tobtok, TÂCHES, Knuckle G, Davidian, Dillistone and new Kitsuné-signing Cesare.

Released via uber-cool French label Kitsuné on November 17th, the Savanna EP is a gem packed EP containing three original tracks ant two gorgeous remixes.

Tropical-infused new track “Free” is a collaboration with elusive Australian duo Hoodlem and it should please all fans of laid-back beats and sun-drenched melodies. “Savanna” also gets a new vocal version featuring a stunning contribution from new startlet River and two remixes courtesy of Fillip Ilic and Keljet, who respectively add some house vibes and new disco, fitting perfectly with Tobtok’s sound.
