We have another act from Norwich for you to listen out for next year now as we continue our look ahead to 2015. Treasureseason has been around for a couple of years now and their subtly melancholic and chilled out summer electro-pop has always attracted a reasonable amount of blog coverage but, as yet, they’ve never really broken out into hypemachine chart bothering territory or beyond.
Two things point to next year being the year that this could change for the pair. One is their recent Julep EP which is as good as anything they have done and juxtaposes Jess’s rich, lush vocals with their trademark icy and almost Scandinavian in style, electronic production. Already with this EP it feels like more people are taking notice. The premieres have been on bigger sites and there has been support from Radio 1 as well, though this may also have something to do with point two.
This is more back of house related than point one. No matter how talented you are, you can only go so far on your own and sometimes you need a helping hand, or someone there to help you focus, point you in the right direction and maybe even give you a boot up the backside when you need it. Having hooked up with the bods behind hot new London based label, Hand in Hive, in a management capacity, Treasureseason look to have found the Dumbledore to their Harry Potter (hopefully there will be no Voldemort to complete the analogy).
They have all the tools in place, the talent, the songs, the support and guidance, fingers crossed 2015 will be the year they really kick on and make their mark.
The ‘Julep’ EP is out now and available to buy here.
