NIKO Returns With New Single ‘The Palace Discotheque’, The Follow Up To Previous Release ‘You Used To Have Her’

Niko has dropped another exciting single in the lead up to the release of her upcoming album, ‘Electric Union’. There’s something wildly reminiscent of Tubeway Army in her sound, along with Kate Bush, and Debbie Harry – but to us the strongest comparison would be to Lene Lovich. However, in the hands of Niko, all these sounds become her very own, and we are compelled by the urge to get on a train and make our way to The Palace Discotheque.

Paul Jacks – ‘Too Emotional’

It’s not often we get to review the music of artists from Alaska. We’ve written about Paul Jacks before, who comes to us from Anchorage, the capital, whose long, bone-shatteringly cold winters, and closeness to active volcanos, make it a place highly likely to stir up creativity in even the most frozen of hearts.

Soft People Get ‘Tender’ With New Single Out July 12

Late last year we introduced readers to Soft People, a husband and husband duo from San Luis Obispo, almost exactly in between San Francisco and LA.

So we’re happy to announce that their new single, ‘Tender’, is set for release this Friday July 12, ahead of their performance at The California Central Coast Pride Festival that weekend.

He started recording and producing in his bedroom, where he developed his own style, and, in addition to working with other musicians, he also scores for film and video games.

Byron Bay school friends Parcels relocated to the creative hub of Berlin to further their musical journey. Now signed to Kitsune/Because, the band won a legion of fans with their early EPs, which showcased a compelling electro sound that was as forward thinking as it was retro sounding.
