Vancouver’s 5 piece band Brasstronaut dropped this track at the tail end of 2016, but I’ve only managed to appreciate it now. Its spacey, horn filled interludes are just a joy to behold.
LA-based duo Electric Guest recently dropped a new album, Plural, that showcases their special brand of electro-pop. Big fan of the groovy vibe on “Oh Devil”.
Sydney based artist Wishes has just blown me away with this supremely catchy track. Underpinned by some solid production and addictive melodies, the song just refuses to leave my head. New Aussie on the block indeed.
I like to think that this video is the dystopian version of the ‘living’ images of Harry Potter. This phenomenally trippy music video from French/Venezuelan artist, La Chica (for another amazing video check out her visual for “Oasis”), is made up of old school magazine images that have been given a new life by director Ma-Ké.
French trio Point Point team up with Denai Moore for a futuristic track that just the right balance of pop and funk.
Anna Meredith is a London-based composer that creates music ranging from maximalist contemporary pieces to pleasantly quantit electro-pop folk music like with “Dowager”. In a lot of ways, the song reminds me of my longtime pop/folk favorites Tunng. The music video is wonderfully crafted by Director and Animator Ewan Jones Morris.
Cassius teams up with Cat Power and Mr Happy himself, Pharell Williams, for a dizzying upbeat pop track. They’ve enlisted the amazing people over at DIVISION to make the visuals, with Director Alex Courtes taking charge. The result is endless vertical and horizontel split screens with double meanings and commentary galore.
RAC, aka Andre Allen Anjos, is a longtime favorite on Beartoons and he’s teamed up with Vampire Weekend’s Rostam for a new original single. The track captures everything we know and love about RAC’s upbeat style and Rostam’s contemplative vocals.
