We'll Find Out

We've been holding out the later part of this month on posting new music until after the new year as we start to roll out some new things on these pages, but alas, we couldn't hold ourselves back with some new faces already grabbing our attention for ones to start watching for 2016. One in particular who caught our eye is Jonny Stemp. Hailing from the UK, Jonny has been slowly drawing the attention of listeners with a few covers, but what made us see all the potential is the release of his "We'll Find Out". Unlike many artists of today who's tracks focus heavily on electronic production, Jonny's style builds upon a piano driven accompaniment that meant for the heavens as his vocals glisten through the clouds of the end of a storm. This one is the light at the end of the tunnel ready to send the emotions speeding fast to your head. Get familiar with Jonny Stemp below because 2016 is looking bright for him!

Continuing to work his way int our hearts is London's Lex Low, who has been winning us over with tastes of his forthcoming EP.

Lex Low brings things in subtly with his R&B melodies that ornament themselves with those classic pop hooks building upon one another to create the perfect jam for those late night drives. The track pulls in the chorus with hints of 70s disco fusing with large amounts of soul,  pop-laced electronics, and those silky smooth vocals sliding through the night . 

"When I was writing this EP, about 3/4 months ago, I'd been listening to a lot of Jack Garratt, Lapsley, and Mirrorwriting-era Jamie Woon . I wanted to get a bit deeper into the complexities of a relationship like those guys, amongst others, manage to do so well. 'Mystery' is about being perpetually surprised by your lover as you get to know more about them; how you never know what's round the corner. The production picks up on some of those themes - sparse in the first verse, then those big reverby toms come in and it drops into a strange alt R&B funk chorus. My girlfriend actually said it sounds like two different songs stuck together - she didn't like it that much. But I kind of like that, you don't expect the chorus or the strings in the bridge. You want a big bassy synth but it never turns up. It draws on that unexpectedness you experience in a relationship." - Lex Low 

"Mystery" is a track that's going to find it's neon colors intertwined inside your mind. Just one listen and you'll be hooked on this one as it pulls you deeper into the depths of your brain. Take a listen to the premiere below, and prepare to be lost in this new love affair.

[PREMIERE] So Dope


It's been said for years on end that Sweden is the treasure cove all things pop, and honestly, it really is where all the hits come from. Today, we are excited to be premiering the music video for another new Swedish favorite Violet Days. "So Dope" is a glistening pop track that runs smooth as an icy glacier. The video pulls on a very simplistic take drawing emphasis to the hazy multicolored wash-over as lead songstress Lina reminisces about a relationship. There's so many great things brewing here that we chatted with Lina to get a little more insight on what's to come from Violet Days. Read up below!

How did Violet Days form? 
"It started with me having a handful of original songs that I believed in and wanted to create something of. I met my band back in 2011 after moving to Stockholm and I asked them if they wanted to play with me and they said YES! and there we go."

Where do you find you draw your inspirations from when writing your songs? 
"I find inspiration in a lot of different things, but I often find myself digging into movie soundtracks and soundscapes, I like vibey instrumentals that trigger something in me. Also I mostly write my songs autobiographical, so I guess my own memories and life in general is a natural source to inspiration."

Should we expect more music soon from you or even an EP? 
"We are definitely working on the next release and have a bunch of songs that we can't wait to share with everyone. Hopefully in the fall."

What are the top 3 songs you can't stop listening to right now? 
"Right now I would say:
- Sufjan Stevens - "Should've Known Better"
-The Neighbourhood - "Afraid"
-Cold War Kids - "First"

Tell us how you came about writing "So Dope" and what inspired the video for it. 
"I wrote the song with 2 other guys last summer on a really hot day. We just played the piano and vibed in front of a microphone and the song kind of just happened. Everything just fell into place and I guess I needed to tell the story. The video is quite simple and we wanted it to portray that hazy lo-fi vibe that's in the song and mix that with some clips to give you a hint of the story."

Finally, what is one goal you want to achieve for Violet Days within the next year? 
"One goal is definitely to get more music out there and build a presence for Violet Days portrayed both musically and visually, and hopefully a lot of gigs too!"
