Having previously announced his debut album A Different Life - out via his own OH Recordings on 4 December - with the stunning video for 'Ocean', Olivier Heim has today shared another standout track, 'It's Getting Better'.
Warm and woozy enough to dispel those winter blues with the addition of a highly addictive, naval-gazing guitar line, 'It's Getting Better' is a fine example of exactly what Olivier does best - straightforward, timeless-sounding pop songs with enough charm and class to leave its melodies lingering in the mind for days.
Olivier launches his debut album A Different Life with his first full band UK show in London on 9 December at Servant Jazz Quarters.
Lou E is the current guise of Louis Milburn formerly of south London slackers King TV. These days he writes melancholic pop songs in the vein of Elliott Smith, Big Star and The Beatles and sits in his room engulfed in a world of 'ambling lo-fi charm'.
"I’m The Woods", released this week on Label Fandango, is a world away from the chaotic whirr of Dracula Legs. Slow burning and minimal, gently plucked guitar and drums frame his elegantly wounded tenor croon. As it progresses, the track gradually cracks and creeps to a fuzzy, euphoric peak, before once again slinking back into the shadows. Lyrically, Dyjecinski focuses on the idea of trying, and failing, to find solitude. “I went on a journey to see how remote I could live, how much solitude I could find.” He explains. “The concept of trying to be lonely doesn’t register with many people. To be lonely has so much negative connotation. But what if you can’t be lonely? What if no matter how hard you try, there is someone there; people everywhere, and no matter how far out you go, there is someone further, or simply in your mind.”
