Keep an eye on these artists; they’re on the verge of something special!
“Paralyse” – Polarheart
Sydney, Australia’s Polarheart have already been making waves with their debut, racking up thousands of Soundcloud hits and now garnering attention from MTV and Nylon Magazine. Their dreampop sound — reminiscent of Data Romance or a low-key Metric — is enthralling with just the right hook, leaving this soft, melancholy melody echoing in your mind for hours on end. What sets them apart is the mature, exploratory soundscapes they’re crafting — a little playful, a little unsettling, but ultimately beautiful.
“I Speak Words” – Fable
Brighton artist Fable is 19 years old — a fact that seems to require repeating everywhere, as if teenagers are incapable of immense talent — and currently crafting her debut EP Parasite with trip hop collective Archive. If “I Speak Words” is any indication, we can look forward to a jaw-dropping creation that marries Massive Attack, Lorde and PJ Harvey into an electro-trip-punk wonderland. Dark and daring you to turn away, Fable is the real deal.
“Never Let You Go” – EVVY
New Yorker EVVY recently released her debut EP, and it’s definitely caught our ears. Airy, delicate vocals dance between synth-heavy electronic pop landscapes. EVVY deals in the shimmering exuberance of young love and the quiet avalanche of its loss. The result: a sense of being trapped within a kaleidoscope, where up is down and blue turns pink as the mood suits her.
