Finding new music can be a stressful task, but we’ve taken some of the aggro out of your life by compiling a weekly pick of the best. On our radar this week are releases from Earl, Emma Blackery, Hayley Kiyoko and SLO.
Earl – ‘I Love You’
Sometimes a simple recipe is always the tastiest, and that’s certainly the case with Earl’s ‘I Love You’. Earl’s simplistic songwriting showcases her incredible voice in this laid back, jazz-tinged tune for the summer. The video sees Earl in a fairy-tale like setting and was shot in Careville Castle one of the most haunted castles in the world.
Hayley Kiyoko – ‘Gravel To Tempo’
Hayley Kiyoko shot into the public eye last year for her single, ‘Girls Like Girls’ featuring a video in which two girls struggle to accept their sexual identities, which has since surpassed 43 million views. ‘Gravel To Tempo’ is Hayley’s first offering from her upcoming EP ‘Citrine’.
Hayley’s latest offering also comes with a video directed by the 25-year-old, which paints the perfect picture of teenage angst.
Emma Blackery – ‘Let Me Be’
Emma Blackery is a woman with many talents, not only does she have a YouTube channel with over 1.2 million subscribers. She’s also released an entirely self-funded EP, ‘Sucks To be You’. ‘Let Me Be’ taken from the EP produced by Jason Perry who’s worked with the likes of McFly and Don Broco is the perfect fuck you to an ex that you need to listen to LOUD.
SLO – ‘Atone Ft Bearcubs’
SLO is a project from U.K based singer-songwriter Jess Mills, who’s already hugely respected within electronic music. ‘Atone’ written with Bearcubs is a melting pot of minimalist electronica, subtle pop and R&B – all delivered with her hauntingly magic vocals.
