New Music Thursday #11
16 Jul 2020
Every Thursday we’re sharing NEW MUSIC THURSDAY featuring recent discoveries, new acts we're currently listening to and our tips for the future. Now more than ever we feel it’s so important to mine the corners of the internet to find some of the wonderful creativity that abounds… Check out this week’s below:
We discovered Khazali with his single Ode to Mark, he’s back with a summer banger “You’ll be The One”. With effervescent vocals reminiscent of Blood Orange and Sampha, Khazali packs soul, with production holding an edge that playfully touches on lo-fi indietronica influences.
18 year old Brisbane songwriter and producer Sasha McLeod is Sycco. Listen to her last single Dribble which follows on her self-released and acclaimed "Nicotine" from March. She signed to Tom Windish and Future Classic’s label - Wilder Records.
We discovered Chicago based Slow Pulp in 2019 at SXSW and we absolutely love them. They announced their self-produced debut album, Moveys via excellent NY label Winspear. We’re super excited to welcome them in London next March at The Shacklewell Arms - tickets available here. Listen to their last single “Idaho”.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Filipino-Australian artist daine is the new soundtrack for a disillusioned generation navigating life in an unforgiving world. An artist born from a DIY ethos and an underground mentality, daine began writing music alone in her room after being inspired by shows from the likes of Turnstile, Basement Jesus Piece and Code Orange. Listen to her first single “Picking Flowers”.
MARTHA SKYE MURPHY
We follow wonderful artist Martha Skye Murphy and remember her set at Slow Space early this year. She released her new EP Heal. Growing up in London amongst a creative family and later studying History of Arts, has had a huge impact on Murphy’s creative perspective. She also collaborated with Nick Cave on “Push The Sky Away” album in 2013.
