Manchester-based composer and recordist Granfalloon is this week’s Artist Of The Week. What began as the folktronica recording project of musician Richard Lomax has now grown to become a group of musicians from the UK and Germany and based across Manchester and Barcelona. Their mixture of folk, experimental music, and lo-fi electronica is absolutely perfect for sunny days outside as well as for downtime moments of quiet contemplation. Have a listen to “Broken Things” to see what we’re on about…
Artist of the week
All the way from Lima, Peru this week’s AOTW is Mono! Starting his musical journey at the age of 20, Mono has honed his sound over the years to create a cool blend of electronic synth-pop with elements of smooth R&B and dance floor-friendly bass mixed in for good measure. If you’re a fan of Depeche Mode, Twin Shadow and Cut Copy, you’ll definitely want to give our favourite song “Emotions (Tell Me)” a spin:
Self-described as a “one man indie band”, FEVER DAYS is the the solo indie project of Oliver Green, hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne. Scrappy low-fi production, complete with scratching guitars and beat up drum machines sounds in equal measure frenetic and warm, somehow managing to stay cohesive in the chaos. If you’re a fan of Jamie T, Rat Boy and Wavves you’ll definitely find something to love in FEVER DAYS. Check out “Hey” below to see what we mean!
This week’s Artist Of The Week is Zkeletonz. Hailing from a few different parts of the UK, this colourful and bombastic trio makes infectious and catchy synthesizer-laden post-pop, with an energetic vibe you can’t help but surrender to! With catchy hooks that fans of MGMT, LCD Soundsystem and Scissor Sisters will love, we highly recommend checking out our favourite song “Don’t Cover It Up” right this minute:
Our Artist Of The Week is Emily Lockett. This talented singer and songwriter hailing from Stoke on Trent is just 16, but has a writing style well beyond her years. Emily’s delicate-yet-powerful voice beautifully delivers heartfelt and earnest lyrics about love and longing, with a lot of care and attention put into impactful choruses and stellar harmonies. With tasteful production that walks a line between folk and more modern pop techniques, highlighted especially well in our favourite song “Where We Left Off”, Emily is definitely one to watch!
