UK duo KAZE are back after a short hiatus with a live in-studio performance of their new one, “Keep Me Loving You.” It’s a bit of a different flavor from the band, but of the same high end songcraft that has made them an OurStage favorite over the last couple of years. This one is a beautiful ballad sung by Amy Webber, accompanied by Graham McCusker on the grand piano. Looking forward to whatever path this pair follow in the coming months.
Singer and songwriter Tim Halperin has a fun new video for his track “Tell Me What You Need.” The song is a standout production from his EP Chances and features a unique groove that morphs in and out of a thumping hook. Watch the video (directed by Sean Deveraux) below.
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.
