NEW MUSIC THURSDAY #8
04 Jun 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:
Bristol’s Harvey Causon is turning heads with his deft take on contemporary R&B, percussive electronica and powerful, brooding vocals that sounds far more world wearied than his 20 years. Harvey writes and produces his own tracks, and also plays with another RFB favourite - Lucy Lu. He recently shared another single “Extended Present” and we have him playing at Electrowerkz in September - Tickets available HERE.
Born in Florida and based in South London, DWY ( pronounced Dewey) has been long time in our radar, and played a incredible show with Harriet Brown in October at Redon. The South London sonic-auteur assembles airy anthems out of organic instrumentation and throwback production as his delivery stretches from moments of intimate observation into overpowering emotion. He released his last single “Latchkey” on Wilder Records a few days ago - A story of loneliness, bad decisions, and a single mother working to the bone to provide.
Hailing from Walthamstow, Olivia Deans’s voice is undeniable but it’s her youthful Friday-night-down-the-pub storytelling that really sets her apart. Her track such as “Example Change” has piqued the interest of tastemakers such as FADER, i-D Clash and Line of Best Fit. Listen to her last single “Baby Come Home”..
“..expect all eyes to be turning to Baby Queen pretty soon…” DORK. No doubt we will hear more and more from Baby Queen. South Africa-via-London songwriter Bella Latham, she has released her debut single “Internet Religion” which is an unstoppable guitar-pop gem; all about internet culture and living life though the screens and the digital age. Go listen!
We’ve been following Kirby Forest for a while and can’t get enough of his single “I Don’t Care”. We can’t wait to his upcoming music.
"Kirby’s energetic and crunchy flows have been establishing him as one of the most exciting and adapting new artists emerging from the underground." Hunger
L.A based boylife a.k.a Ryan Yoo, brought to our attention not long ago with his track “dummy” released earlier this year. This is his latest track to date titled “Dio”. Lush with emotions and a mesmerizing near addicting groove “Dio” will fill you in with plenty of great vibes for the rest of the week. Ryan Yoo is an artist to follow.
