One listen of this dreamy, summer pop anthem by Frills and you’ll be hooked. Dam Girl certainly hits the spot.
Kult Kyss successfully differentiate themselves in a genre that is literally flooded with talent right now. The electronic music duo, hailing from Melbourne, are giving away I Am The One here, and you’ll want to take advantage of the offer. This song has vocals reminiscent of Fever Ray and the fun, upbeat of a PNAU track, with elements pulled together to make a distinguished Kult Kyss sound.
After a seven year hiatus, N.E.R.D. are back and I am excited! In Lemon, Chad, Pharrell and Shay team up with Rihanna for a track that takes me back the early naughties, a time that I will strongly argue was Pharrell’s hay day. Let’s hope that we don’t have to wait as long for the next track.

Australian/American electronic duo, The Golden Filter, are back with this seductive and broody synth pop anthem. Stay tuned for the EP, being released next week.
After an eight year hiatus, The Knife‘s Karin Dreijer, aka Fever Ray, is back! To the Moon and Back‘s film clip is a bit creepy, a bit kinky and a lot weird, (but would you expect anything less?), featuring a person being awaking after being cryogenically frozen (maybe a metaphor for the “re-awakening” of Fever Ray??) and then attending a BDSM tea party.
What better time to listen to a song exploring anxiety than in the midst of the The Big Anxiety Festival? Nashville singer-songwriter, Liza Anne, has been coping with anxiety for much of her life, and through songs like Paranoia, she educates others about her experiences and reminds us that such conditions don’t completely define a person.
