Well hello there, this is an unexpected pleasure. We’re not normally here ferreting around in the inbox on a Sunday but there was so many great tunes sent to us this week, we felt the need for a bonus mini-edition of ‘What’s In The Box?’ was necessary. So here we go with four more tracks for you to enjoy.
Body Language – “Really Love”
After the rather mellow feeling of yesterday’s collection, we’re starting off today with something much more bouncy and effervescent. Brooklyn based electro duo Body Language have gone a little bit leftfield for their latest, bringing in hip-hop, techno, dub and even a little bit of jungle for a track of glitchy brilliance. It’s a bit like a go on high-powered bumper cars with no seat belt.
”Really Love” is due out on 17 February and can be pre-orderd here.
Chelsea Lankes – “Down For Whatever”
Chances are you’ve already heard the new Chelsea Lankes track as it has been all over the blogs this past week. That doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be written about and shared more though, good music should always be shouted about by as many people as possible and “Down For Whatever” is damn good music. A down-tempo indie/synth pop gem, her voice is gorgeously melancholic yet warm and hopeful. She’s a bit like a comedown Vérité, which is a good thing, trust us.
Seafret – “Oceans”
If ever there was music made for a Sunday, it is “Oceans” by Yorkshire based duo, Seafret. The title track from their latest EP, it is a gorgeous undulating folky-indie-pop beauty that soars and pirouettes gracefully and effortlessly. The vocals are rich, the arrangement is intricate yet subtle and the tone is suitably heartwrenching and emotive. Just great stuff from an act that already seems set for good things in 2015.
Sefret’s ‘Oceans’ EP is out now and available to buy now.
Hollywood Principle – “Find Me Out”
We close this bonus edition with San Diego electro-pop trio Hollywood Principle whose debut EP, Starting Over, is due out later this year. Taking their lead from the likes of London Grammar, Banks etc “Find Me Out’ is a surprising and wonderfully lively track. Starting off like a Sunday lie-in in, the smokey synths and understated electronics quickly build into a big pre-Saturday night out bounce. As the beat quickens and the key stokes grow more intense, the vocals build from soft whisper to standing tall cry out to the world.
”Find Me Out” is out now and available to buy on iTunes.
We hope you enjoyed this mini bonus delve into the inbox. There was just so much in there we wanted to share some more. Come back next week for more regular posting and, all being well, another What’s In The Box? next Saturday as well.
