SLOWES – SWEET (Alt/Pop – Denmark)

Slowes
With their subtle mix of alternative psychedelic lo-fi and dreamy chillwave, Danish duo Slowes create evocative pop soundscapes with an electronic twist. Jack Kilburn (vocals) and Anders Hamann (drums) formed Slowes in 2015, under the name More, and have since released two singles: “I Need You” and “Sweet”.

With a string of live performances scheduled over the summer, as well as a couple more singles expected before the end of the year, the boys are keeping busy ahead of the release of their highly anticipated debut EP in early 2017.

SUMMER HEART – ABOUT A FEELING (LoFi – Sweden)

Fall into a blissful whirl of dreamy visions and sun-kissed harmonies with Malmö-based artist David Alexander, better known as Summer Heart. On his latest EP, About a Feeling, the young musician provides chill pop vibes with mellow vocals that still gives a scintillating increase of your heartbeat.

Summer Heart has also produced a handful of remixes for other artists such as Work Drugs, Sameblod or Simian Ghost. Check out his reinterpretation of Sameblod’s anthem of a single “Loud” just below…

BODIES OF WATER – TWIST AGAIN (LoFi/Indie – US)

California-based lo-fi rock band Bodies of Water are back with a new album, Twist Again, relased last month on Thousand Tongues Records. More intimate and somewhat darker than the band’s previous albums, Twist Again is still filled with sunny melodies and breezy 60s pop sounds. You can stream the whole album now on Soundcloud.

After the departure of founding members Kyle Gladden and Jessica Conklin, the married core of the band (David and Meredith Metcalf) focused on their ABBA-tastic side project Music Go Music, with the project’s debut Expressions released in 2009. Then they built their own studio and started work on Twist Again. David and Meredith’s harmonizing vocals bring a more personal and private touch to the album, which explores the conflict between heavenly love and earthly love.

Bodies of Water - Open Rhythms     

But this isn’t bedroom indie-pop: Twist Again incorporates elements of rock, disco and folk, plus mariachi fanfares and vibrant choruses! Surprisingly enough all these elements work perfectly together, making BoW’s new album a very pleasant listen, probably one of the most underrated albums of this first half of 2011.

ZERO 7 – THE GARDEN (Electronica/LoFi – UK)

Many will still remember this band’s first album, Simple Things, which marked the year 2001 with its airy melodies and stunning vocals. Back then, Zero 7 was often compared to Air due to their laid back retro sound, which reminded the listener of Air’s Premiers symptômes.

Zero 7 - Futures     

Originating from the UK, the group’s core is Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker. Over the years, a wide array of talented artists have contributed vocals to Binns and Hardaker’s compositions: Mozez, Sia Furler, Tina Dico, Sophie Barker, and José González to name a few.
