SUEDE JAMES: CHAUVINISTICALLY COOL

Coming from a musical background and an extremely successful band (we’ll let you figure that one out for yourself), making ear-worthy music must seem like child’s play for Suede James (who goes by Taylor. Sometimes). The cool thing about Taylor (who goes by Suede James. Sometimes.) is that he’s […]

A LOVING HAND AND DARING KISS

The latest from France’s Héloïse Letissier, better known as Christine and the Queens, is in fact not new at all. “Narcissus Is Back” is lifted from her previous album Mac Abbey, and appears online as early as 2012, but has been reuploaded to SoundCloud just this […]

MY LIPS WERE BITTEN

Oh Sister has captured our lil hearts with her recent release off of her debut EP- coming soon.  “For The Dales” is an ambient tune that grasps Sarah’s alluring vocals and definitive electro-folk harmonies.  It (she, everything of hers) is worth a listen…

CRUMBLIN’ IS JUST A START; LET ME OUT BOY

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard something from Lyves, but today, the soul vocalist releases her second single “Shelter“. Encompassing the same down tempo sounds and incandescent lyrics paralleled in her debut single a few months ago, this single proves she’s got way more in store for us […]

YOU MEET MY EYES ON THE FLOOR

This duo is no stranger to the electro-pop world, having quite a reputation as DJ’s and producers. “House Shoes” is a lovely little peak into their first LP Nadastrom that has us thrilled to hear the rest. The translucence of Nina K‘s chilling vocals, along with the whole “call and response” effect […]

LAUREL // HOLY WATER EP

In classic Laurel fashion, our girl just released a flaw-less second EP, Holy Water. I mean we’ve always known the 20-year-old Brit was talented, but DAMN. This EP has a sound that we weren’t entirely expecting. R&B undertones compliment chilled electronic synth—twirling together under alluring vocals. […]

YOU PUSH AND YOU PULL

They’re baaaaack! For most indie-electro lovers, Purity Ring, and their album “Shrines,” are a music library staple. A foundation. It’s actually kind of hard to believe its been 2 years since their last musical offering, but the wait was well worth it. The two dropped […]

RAYE. // WELCOME TO THE WINTER

RAYE ‘s third track, “Bet U Wish,” originally grabbed our attention but we’re deeming her whole EP as something you should download asap (get it here). Welcome to the Winter —written, recorded, and produced by RAYE herself— is a lil r&b, a lil pop, and a whole lotttta soul. This girl has some serious […]

YOU SAID TO ME, “ALWAYS YOURS”

Some songs invoke such nostalgia, you’re lost in a memory with every listen. With a simple piano melody, Azura’s “Nineteen” brings us back to the bittersweet heartbreak of our first summer romance. With hauntingly innocent vocals calling to mind Daughter, seventeen-year-old Aussie Lauren Coutts reflects on a doomed relationship. […]

I’VE SEEN IT MANY TIMES

There’s a force brewing in Norway and her name is Aurora. While physically petite the soulful siren—who I named Best of CMJ for V—evokes images of some of indie/electro’s biggest including Robyn, Sia, and Bjork. Her performance is hypnotic and her tracks captivating. Until today her […]

IF YOU HAD HIS TONGUE, IT WOULD MEAN MORE

Chelsea Jade, formerly known as Watercolours, is creating some of the best dark pop we’ve heard in a long time. Hazy in the best way possible, her single “Night Swimmer,” from the Beacons EP, is the kind of song that makes you feel like curling up under […]

MY YOUNG SOUL IS SOLD TO HIS HEART

We’ve been waiting for this announcement since FOREVER and our favorite london lady has finally pulled through. Today Laurel dropped “Memorials” (!!!!!!!), the first track off her soon-to-come EP ‘Holy Water’ (which we unfortunately have to wait until December to hear the whole of. Obviously, it will […]
