Kult Kyss – Rituals

28 Jun

Made in Australia but oh so Scandi in sound. ‘Rituals’ sounds like an icy Frida Sundemo vocal over a Rein-esque industrial electro throb. We adore.

Massimo Voci – Everybody In The Club Crying

28 Jun

This fella has a radio show in Italy called ‘Adventures In A Disco’ and he stays on brand with his shimmering new single which oozes nighttime glitterball glamour.

Pure Shores – Rushing

28 Jun

Marlene and Ji Nilsson have been dropping Scandibops semi-regularly and seem to have given their collab a new moniker in the form of Pure Shores. ‘Rushing’ is a dancefloor ready summerfest of a tune and we hope these ladies keep the magic coming over the rest of 2019.


Ali Barter – Backseat

25 Jun

Ali Barter has mastered that Britney meets Liz Phair sound so completely. Big bubblegum pop songs but fuzzed up with some rollicking rock and roll and crunching guitars. Ali’s new album ‘Hello, I’m Doing My Best’ is out in October and here’s the spiky but all kinds of fun new single ‘Backseat’.


Sui Zhen – Perfect Place

25 Jun

One of our most eagerly awaited albums of 2019 is Sui Zhen’s ‘Losing, Linda’ which is finally confirmed for a September release via Cascine. Her ‘Secretly Susan’ project was quite simply exquisite and divinely articulated both visually and musically. There’s a crispness in the production on new single ‘Perfect Place’ which advances Sui Zhen’s sound. The video of course is eerie and gorgeous at once.


So Sensitive – My Heart Is Open

25 Jun

Didn’t expect a new track so soon after ‘What’s A Girl To Do’ but we won’t complain. So Sensitive have made it very apparent from their first couple of releases that they are not messing around. ‘My Heart Is Open’ is luxurious, dramatic pop with a lush production value.


Eva – Honeycomb

23 Jun

“Sick of being sweet, sick of showing teeth” is the opening gambit from Eva’s newest RnB friendly pop nugget which sets out her stall very clearly – this woman would much rather be considered a hurricane (and nothing’s getting in her way say the lyrics). ‘Honeycomb’ wouldn’t sound out of place on a Mariah album although her vocals actually recall Cathy Dennis (see previous single ‘Cry’ which could totally be lifted from Cathy’s ‘Move To This’ classic album). There’s plenty of bite on this track despite the sweetest melody you’ll hear today. Very excited for the EP which will follow soon.
