Mall Girl – My Sweet Mall Girl

6 Jun

If pastel tinged dreamy yachtpop is your thing you’ll adore the gorgeous new single from this talented bunch of Norwegians. ‘My Sweet Mall Girl’ blends TOPS’ summery indie haze with Anna Of The North’s 80s synthpop and a hint of the laid back indie jazz folk of Men I Trust. It’s entirely warm and lovely.

Groove Armada featuring Nick Littlemore – Get Out On The Dancefloor (Joe Goddard Remix)

6 Jun

UK dance music royalty come together on this one with Joe Goddard remixing the already rather banging recent single from Groove Armada. ‘Get On The Dancefloor’ also features Nick Littlemore who has his fingers in so many very hot musical pies (all of which we love). In original form the track channels LCD Soundsystem rather well and the remix goes for the dark throbbing electro vibe and nails it effortlessly of course.

 

Seraphina Simone – Cherry <8

6 Jun

Now normally we’d say our favourite cherry related things would be Prince’s ‘Under The Cherry Moon’ movie, Goldfrapp’s ‘Black Cherry’ album and naturally some gorgeous cherry blossom trees. However, this week we’ve already posted new tunes with cherry in the title and here’s a third!

Seraphina Simone announces herself in a big way with the genre-defying ‘Cherry <8’. Glitchy samples rubbing against her angelic and jazz-suited voice give way to a psychedelic alt-rock out at the back end of the track. Trippy and wonderful.

Lena Philipsson – Stockholm

6 Jun

A national treasure in her native Sweden, Lena Philipsson just released a new album by the name of ‘Maria magdalena’. From it here’s a tune about one of our most beloved travel destinations – the mighty Stockholm. It’s an 80s electro funk track with a disco twist for sure.

 

ELLE – Cherry Love Dreams

6 Jun

Here’s another contender for best opening set of lyrics of the year. That divine pair we call ELLE shared a two track single this week and how’s this for sublime wordplay on ‘Cherry Love Dreams’  –“you smell like summer storms and lemon flavoured icypoles”. Described as their softest track yet it’s Banks-esque electronic RnB with a distinct Aussie coastal breeze passing through.

The Brothers Macklovitch – Give Love To Get Some (featuring Leven Kali)

5 Jun

A Trak and his brother Dave1 (Chromeo) have a groovy side project/superduo as The Brothers Macklovitch. New single ‘Give Love To Get Some’ (featuring Leven Kali) is a housed up acid jazz jam which is guaranteed to brighten your day. Here’s hoping they’ve got an album packed of uplifting anthems for us.

Josephin Bovién – Cherry Boy

5 Jun

Denmark’s Josephin Bovién is a newcomer to Teases & Dares but we are smitten with her cracking new tune ‘Cherry Boy’. The track defies the usual structure for RnB, demonstrating a choppy yet rhythmic jazz feel.
