Khaki Fever | I Got This Feeling

HOME BASE: United Kingdom.
GENRE: Soul / R&B.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Khaki Fever (pronounced Kar-Kee-Fee-Ver) are a feel-good, whimsical two-piece pop band in London. Their groove-based rhythm draws from bands such as Jungle and Parcels. Part of their epic sound comes from the use of orchestral instrumentation, similar to bands such as Florence & The Machine, Foals and Kasabian. While Khaki Fever are fairly synth-heavy, they maintain a live feel and atmosphere about them drawing from various genres such as indie, rock, funk and pop. With such a diverse and varied sound, Khaki Fever have something to offer everyone! Emerging from the depths of the 2020 pandemic, Sam and Gio thought it was about time the world was cured by the groove. Khaki Fever have since worked tirelessly on crafting some of their best work in their studio, The Fever Factory. Sam’s deep love of gritty vocals and catchy melody brings a unique and rich texture to Khaki Fever. Combined with Gio’s fantastic sense of groove, orchestration and danceability, Khaki Fever have become an unstoppable force that will stop at nothing to create the world’s best tunes!”

Ze In The Clouds | I Couldn’t Know

GENRE: Indie-Pop.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Ze in the Clouds is a cutting edge multi-instrumentalist and producer. He created his own compositional style as the result of his jazz origins and his continuous studying and evolution. He shares his thousand faces without any stylistic boundaries with people and musicians who have the same vision. I Couldn’t Know is the description of a first meeting of love. There is the mystery of discovery, there is shyness disguised as impudence, there is the proposal of an erotic game and there is the game.”

Rodeo FM | Worthless Gain

HOME BASE: Germany.
GENRE: Alt-Country.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Worthless Gain is the first single from Berlin alt-country band Rodeo FM’s upcoming EP All The Things You Asked For, out on May 14. A slow-building, ear-catching guitar and pedal steel-soaked trip through Laurel Canyon on an overloaded public bus. Not stopping. Dodging the fare.”

After Ivory | For You

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Pop-Rock.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:After Ivory are a French rock band from Paris that formed in 2015. The band consists of Arthur Chaminade (vocals, guitar, piano), Tony Moga (guitar), Esteban Oñate (bass) and Henri Kreizel (drums). After Ivory released their debut EP Influence in 2017. They say: “Our singer Arthur Charminade was a semifinalist on The Voice France a few days ago, and we decided to release our new music video For You at the same time.”

Diatome | Now I See

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Soul / R&B.
THE TRANSLATED & EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Now I See details a part of me with direct lyrics that everyone can make their own. I also looked for a stripped-down, deep and sensual sound that reveals the most intimate of my emotions.”

Mariona | Comme Si

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Synth-Pop.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “Obsessed by the perfect interpretation of human feelings, Mariona writes songs and sings in French and it sounds natural to her. She wants to prove that melodies have no boundaries. Exploring the ’80s without no regrets, she invests synthesizers and drum boxes with the tears and the joy she can put in words. Mariona has planned to tour the world with her record to show what a woman in love can do.”

Houn | Amour Sorcier

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Jazz-Pop.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Houn mix jazz with pop, rock, funk and French songs to create an original musical universe. After laying the groundwork and recording their first EP in 2013, the band made a real change by welcoming Roxane Terramorsi on lead vocal and Diego Lipnizky on guitar. This new alchemy gave birth to the songs of their new album, scheduled for release in the fall. Amour Sorcier is a journey though feminine mystery; a song of mysticism and sensuality, depth of soul and organic intensity, where the main character is the moon.”

Ta To Valken | Mi Profesora

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Reggaeton.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Ta To Valken are a French Reggaeton band that aim to make everybody move and forget their problems. They say: “Our music is full of sunshine and perfect for this early summer. Mi Profesora is our third single. It tells the story of love between a French student and his Spanish teacher. In this song we can hear the sea, the sun, the laughter of the girls, the lemon trees of Seville, pleasure, and love between bodies.”

EinarIndra | Softer Now?

HOME BASE: Iceland.
GENRE: Electronica.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “This is my most minimal song yet. I usually have a lot of electronics, but this time it’s only piano and my voice, which is more personal I guess.”

Matilde Benedusi | What If

GENRE: Folk-Pop.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “I’m Matilde and I’m 19 from Italy. What If is one of the 12 tracks of my first album Better Days To Come. The song talks about love and hope and it has been arranged with a 12-string and acoustic guitar, bass, piano and ukulele.”

Jaj & The Family Hope | Soul Family

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Afrobeat.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Soul Family, the title track of Jaj & The Family Hope’s EP out May 28, takes us into the world of live music and jam sessions. This song reflects the joy in this EP, with a rhythm and groove at the crossroads of funk, soul and Afrobeat. Soul Family is a tribute to the world of the night, the show, the performances. It reminds us that we need these moments of sharing.”

The Briddles | Reverse

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Electronica.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Reverse is a song in the neoclassical genre.. We are bathed in a noticeably nostalgic but light atmosphere which envelops us for a reassuring emotional journey.”

Lvvrrs I’velli | Losing Interest (ft. Shiloh Dynasty)

HOME BASE: United States.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “Cigarettes and no patience, fuck being famous, I wanna be loved. I wrote this song as a cryptic soliloquy of a past relationship that I don’t even remember anymore. I was on a lot of drugs, and my memory has lapsed since.”

John Bringwolves | Run

GENRE: Electronica.
THE EDITED BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “I had a lot of fun producing this song. It is very fast and I’m not used to working at 133 bpm. I added the vocal part and then I worked a lot in the studio on every sound; I’m experimenting a lot during the mix and mastering sessions. The way every sound is positioned in the mix is very important. I am discovering many things by finishing my first album and this will help me in the composition of my future work.”
