GIMME5 is the opportunity to discover 5 worthy tracks in one post. Here is a selection of twisted pop music that will probably make it to your iTunes libraries! In the roaster today: Collin Cairo, Pillow Person, Terror Jr, Lully, and Molly Moore. Five tracks to listen to if you like SOPHIE, Danny L Harle, Felix Snow, Animal Collective and Neon Indian!
Collin Cairo is the type of crazy artist that drives us crazy. His bubbly-experimental pop will catch you straight away if you dig Animal Collective‘s madness and Neon Indian‘s creativity. The Los Angeles-based producer, singer/songwriter just released “ACID WASH“, a 6-song alternate retro-futuristic project streaming free on Soundcloud!
This could be the new PC Music signature but actually, it is a Moshi Moshi Records one! Sarah Jones, who was playing in several bands including Hot Chip, has now her own project called Pillow Person. Her debut track “Go Ahead” is bouncy and sad at the same time, a smart move that already draws excitement for what is coming next! The track comes with a Jones and Dscreet-directed video that was filmed in Melbourne.
US most interesting pop act of the moment Terror Jr shared a follow-up to “Say So” and it is once again an infectious piece of killing pop gem! “Come First” was produced by Felix Snow (of course) and Jerker Hansson, a Stockholm-based songwriter, topliner, and producer who has worked with many of Sweden’s young and upcoming pop stars!
Already featured in the Deer Du Bois playlist #120, we offer you a booster injection. Indeed, with only one track, mysterious act Lully made some breakthroughs with the impressive debut “Slow D’s”, a futuristic alien track based on pitched-down vocal chops! We definitely look forward to hearing more. Asap please!
Singer-Songwriter and actress Molly Moore called on Craig Dodds of Massive Attack to produce her second EP . “Free Spirit” is an anthem for freedom and empowerment with an amazing digital-tribal break that is a good example of the creativity of the artist. By the way, she is the girlfriend of artist and producer Brandyn Burnette, another talent that we diligently follow!
