Blakeley – ‘Holiday Vinyl’

‘Holiday Vinyl’ from Brooklyn’s Blakeley is a languid love song about loss and longing sung while holding tightly to a bottle of Jack Daniels. It’s not your traditional Christmas song by any means, it’s the sort of Christmas song sung by someone who’s seen the other side, the down side, the dark side. ‘Holiday Vinyl’ is sad and raw with only the jingling bells (plus a few references to Christmas) which pin it down to any particular season.

Ace Harper – ‘Neon Heart’

Ace Harper comes from a dance background and so feels there is a live performance aspect to everything she does. This is no less the case with her writing, which combined with her quirky and colourful music videos, reminds us a great deal of Kate Bush and perhaps Siouxsie And The Banshees, or Toyah Wilcox.
