Our Music Monday tracks set the mood for your week with the freshest soundtrack of new music.
Kygo – Raging (feat. Kodaline)
Earlier this week, Kygo shared his new single off his debut album Cloud Nine, scheduled for release in May. “Raging”, co-written by James Bay, features Irish band Kodaline on guitar and vocals which gives the soft, guitar driven, tropical house track a more organic feel than Kygo’s previous works.
YOURS – Goldmine
San Francisco duo YOURS are a funky, indie-experimental project. “Goldmine” is a groovy track off their forthcoming self-titled EP that has a little Metronomy feel. This should make the cut for many summer 2016 playlists.
Fang Night – Artificial
Art & design graduates Ben Walker & Ewa Lefmann are Fang Night, a new art-pop outfit from North London. “Artificial” is the lead single off their debut EP and the mid-tempo jam hits the mark as the male-female vocals and harmonies reach a perfect complicity.
Beau – Animal Kingdom
New York two-piece band Beau released the hotly anticipated debut That Thing Reality in March via Kitsuné, featuring the single “Animal Kingdom”. The multi-faceted duo, made up of 21-year-olds Heather Boo and Emma Rose, write great indie-pop tunes that have a French New Wave feel to them.
Gordi – Can We Work It Out
22-year-old Australian songwriter Sophie Payten, aka Gordi, is set to release her first North American EP on May 13 via Jagjaguwar. The first single “Can We Work It Out” is a powerful indie-folk song featuring great guitar work and a beautiful chorus.
