Bob Moses – Enough to Believe

Bob Moses’ sophomore album, Battle Lines, drops September 14 and is shaping up to be a solid addition to the Canadian duo’s discography. ‘Enough to Believe’, the third single from the new album after ‘Heaven Only Knows’ and ‘Back Down,’ keeps to their brand of melancholy electronica. At first it seems the band might be stripping it right back, with just the sound of scarce piano notes. But it soon develops into a richly-textured track with brooding percussion and a spikey synth riff. Perhaps more suited to headphones than the dance-floor.

 

 

Kilo Kish – Elegance

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard from Kilo Kish, but the American singer has comeback in ambitious fashion. ‘Elegance’, her first track since 2016’s Reflections In Real Time, begins unassumingly, though at the 30 second mark the intention is clear. A heaving industrial synth bleeds throughout the track, representing Kish’s fierce directional change. The track is multi-textured with something new appearing on each repeated listen. Dive in and don’t look back.

 

 

FRITZ – Summer Holiday

Ahh, yes, Spring is finally upon us. Our cold, creaky bones have been replenished with a fresh dose of vitamin D. Plus, FRITZ’s sunshine-infused bop ‘Summer Holiday’ provides the brightness we’ve all been longing for throughout the winter months. The project of 18-year-old Tilly Murphy showcases punchy percussion, sunny guitar riffs and shimmering synths on ‘Summer Holiday’. But the upbeat production is contrasted by Murphy’s sadness surrounding her first break-up. It’s a sun-shower if ever I’ve heard one.

 

 

Yves Tumor – Licking an Orchid (feat. James K)

Earlier this year, Yves Tumor signed to Warp, home to artists like Aphex Twin, Mount Kimbie and Kelela. The ground-breaking British label is renowned for unearthing brilliant artists, and they’ve done it again here. ‘Licking an Orchid’, Yves Tumor’s second track on Warp, consists of Bloc Party-reminiscent vocals, a haunting harp and lumbering drum fill. It’s a strange slice of art-rock goodness.

 

 

DJ Koze – Hawaiian Souldier

DJ Koze can’t put a foot wrong. This year, the German producer dropped his excellent third studio album, Knock Knock. His latest track, ‘Hawaiian Souldier’, is featured on the new compilation from Swedish label, Studio Barnhaus. Presumably an extra from his last album, it sounds similar to an earlier B-side from the year, ‘The Love Truck’. A breezy synth flows along before a ghostly vocal sample whispers for numerous clicks and clacks to begin. Yeah, it’s a truly weird song. But it’s a playful spring-time gem.

For the last couple of years Melbourne’s Two People, Phoebe Cockburn and Joey Clough, formerly of Snakadaktal, have been teasing us with brooding electronic-pop. The artwork for the last two releases – ‘Something To Talk About’ and ‘I’m Tied, To You’ – suggest a “proper” project is coming, and if their latest release is anything to go by it’ll be something serious.
