Remedios the Beauty

Abhi//Dijon EP

Maryland duo Abhi//Dijon serenade your ears with their blissful falsettos floating over smooth, silky R&B soundscapes riddled with thumping bass’, crashing drums and elegant piano melodies in their debut self-titled EP. Over the course of thirteen minutes, you’ll find yourself entranced by the lush production and gorgeous, velvety vocals. And dammmmn, that outro on ‘Distant Love’ is fire!

Meet UK trio R I T U A L and their incredibly atmospheric debut offering ‘The Fall’. Driven by what’s essentially a hip-hop beat, the track is given extra live through the subtle soulful undertones and smooth electronics whilst the deep songwriting keeps you in check. The equally dark, and haunting music video is just as good; with it’s exquisitely shot clips of the sky, trees and crashing waves. Watch above, and enjoy!

Haim have just come out with one of the best music videos of the year (so far). It’s for their latest single ‘My Song 5' which featured on last year's debut Days Are Gone and also sees a guest verse from A$AP Ferg. With cameo appearances from Ezra Koenig, Ke$ha, Big Sean, Grimes and even their parents, the visual sees the sisters take over a fictional day-time talk show hosted by SNL’s Vanessa Bayer called Dallas Murphy. In two words? Ridiculously hilarious. Enjoy!

Every Other Freckle

Okay,so only alt-J are can have a line like ‘I wanna turn you inside out and lick you like a crisp packet' in their songs and make it sound so so good. Yes, the song in question is 'Every Other Freckle’, the latest to surface from the trio’s forthcoming This Is All Yours LP out next month. It’s no surprise that we’re thrown into a whirlwind of eclectic rhythms and snazzy vocal melodies; simply irresistible. 

Walk

machine-factory:

London songwriter Kwabs follows up his incredible Wrong or Right and Pray For Love EPs with ‘Walk’, a stand-alone single out next month. The track isn’t the same as what we’ve heard before, instead of the gushes of brooding R&Band soul inflections, we’re presented with Kwabs’ rich tones smothering a heavy, military-like marching drum, which is pretty refreshing. Listen up!
