Kimbra brings the funk on new track ‘Miracle’

kimbra-the-golden-echo

Kimbra may have divided just about everybody on her eclectic first single, ’90s Music but her new track Miracle is bound to get the doubters back on board. Kicking off with the lyric “I’m rising up” the song sends positive vibes through way of funky bass and airy vocals. The 5-minute affair is about as joyous as they come with a chorus almost reminiscent of Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act.

Her second album, The Golden Echo, is due on 15 August and will feature Miracle alongside the previously released, ’90s Music, Nobody But You and Love in High Places. Here’s what we know about the album so far.

Listen to ‘Beggin For Thread’, another cut from BANKS’ ‘Goddess’

BANKS - BEGGIN FOR THREAD

British songstress BANKS has released another cut from her forthcoming album, GoddessBeggin For Thread follows the stunning, Drowning, and kicks the tempo up a notch. “My words can come out at a pistol”, she sings on Beggin For Thread putting in song what we’ve known all along- BANKS has one spiteful tongue. With this latest track, it’s fast becoming clear that Goddess will be a dark project built upon confidence and brooding melodies. Beggin For Thread could well be the most immediately likeable song we’ve heard so far. Mark your calendars- 5 September the album drops and it’s going to be one hell of a record.

The Weeknd drops new track, ‘King of the Fall’

Serial-creeper and the man with a voice of velvet, The Weeknd, has released another new song in celebration of a tour announcement. The tour is in fall and as such, The Weeknd is now the King of the Fall. It’s not a big departure from anything he’s done in the past but it’s always nice to hear some more haunting, sparse RnB. The brooding breakdown in the middle-part of the song is something to look out for.

Listen to new Jhené Aiko, ‘The Pressure’

artworks-000085372668-a3v1m3-t500x500

Jhené Aiko is quickly becoming the top lady in R&B. Her last track To Love and Die was exquisite and her collaborations with Drake and Childish Gambino have shown she can steal the attention from the boys. Apparently her record, Souled Out, has been delayed until much later in the year but she’s given us a peace offering in the form of The PressureThe Pressure is a mid-tempo RnB jam that sees Aiko lay her silky smooth vocals over top. In the words of Alicia Keys, this girl is on fire.

Ryan Hemsworth remixes Sinead Harnett’s ‘No Other Way’

Ryan Hemsworth serves up the perfect balance of soul and well-crafted production in his most recent rework of London songwriter, Sinead Harnett’s ‘No Other Way’. The layered synths up the tempo from the original chilled track, to produce a dancey, yet thoughtful augmentation of the original.

Vic Mensa unleashes the drug-fuelled ‘Feel That’

Vic Mensa‘s Down On My Luck has quickly become an interns favourite this year, this we are suitably excited about this lated release. The latest track is called Feel That and it’s another drug-induced, party tune that comes with a video that emulates that. There’s girls, clubs, amazing LA homes and a shooting style that descends into hazy visuals. Chance The Rapper even appears at one point. It like a poignant feature given those two are the biggest new names in rap right now.

Kwamie Liv is ‘comin THRU’

comin THRU

What happens when you cross M.I.A with a little bit of Lana Del Rey and Robyn? You get Kwamie Liv– a Danish artist who is an amalgamation of the best qualities of all three. Already she’s impressed with 5am and Follow You but comin THRU is by far her most immediately likeable taste. Sweet, solemn verses are juxtaposed with a chorus that has the effortless flow of M.I.A’s Paper Planes without the need for ridiculous hand actions. There was a certain lo-fi quality to her last track, Follow You, but comin THRU is having none of that. It’s a crisp, slice of perfection that is difficult to box into one genre.

GEoRGiA follows-up ‘Be Ache’ with ‘Digits’

Digits

We featured GEoRGiA‘s first track, Be Ache, on the interns back in June and have waited for a follow-up to the l0-fi wonder ever since. Today, as if by magic, another one has appeared titled, Digits. Where Be Ache was a manic collision of sounds, Digits is a far more demure, streamlined affair. The beat still packs a punch but you really get to hear GEoRGiA’s sweet and sour vocals here alongside a mellow synth-line. It’s a definite nod to RnB but there is also an industrial rawness to it not unlike Kanye West‘s Yeezus. Digits has a progressed feel for melody than Be Ache and is likely to work it’s way into the playlists of more listeners. One of 2014’s names to watch.
