Fast-rising UK singer Erin Bloomer, whom we first came across last year when her song “Right Love, Wrong Time” hit our Top 10, has just released a new single and video, “Lately.” It’s a bigger production than that previous single, more ambitiously layered and R&B flavored, and arranged with subtle complexity. The accompanying video is a fun, early ’90s-evoking technicolored spectacle.
We’ve got a new video from Yonas, a beautiful clip for the track “Travel The World,” featuring his young daughter Riley, to whom the song is addressed. As Yonas tells us, he took much of the last year off to spend time with his family, and it feels appropriate that this song, brimming with aspirational joy, should be returning statement.
Late Cambrian is straight up flexing now, demonstrating their incredible aptitude for pop hooks across a variety of genres and styles. Their recent dip into their own origins as a power pop guitar band (from which they morphed into a startlingly good electro pop duo) is here followed by “Everyone But You,” a Latin-inspired acoustic guitar riff paired with a head-nodding electro thump.
The spectacular Kat Robichaud has released a video for her song “King,” which, she assures us, has nothing to do with the current American president. Ahem. As with all things Kat Robichaud, it is a cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed piece of art that elevates the already excellent music.
Before their evolution into one of the best electro pop duos going today, Late Cambrian was a standout guitar-based power pop band. With the release of their new single “February,” John Wlaysewski and Olive Hui went back to those roots and proved they can still knock out a killer, fuzz-saturated rocker. This is everything you’ve been missing since Rivers Cuomo lost the plot a decade or so ago. Check out “February.”
It’s the whole shebang from Lady Lamb (aka Aly Spaltro), as she launches a new album, replete with a single and video, as well as a slew of tour dates. From the LP Even In The Tremor, out April 5th on Ba Da Bing Records, comes the title track and accompanying video, which you can see below. She’ll hit the road right after the album drops, first with Renata Zeiguer and then with Katie Von Schleicher (tour dates also below). The new single is extremely tight, with a mix of programmed and organic drums, chopped up grooves (each verse has its own feel) and sampled vocals. It’s challenging music, but Spaltro wraps it in her rich voice and inviting melodies, making it a joy to listen to. We’ve gone parenthetically crazy (so we’ll just stop (here) and let you listen).
