New Sounds #34 - 29/2/16




KYKO - NATIVE
Following his debut EP ‘Animals’ (which has racked up over 2m online streams) and infectious single ‘Pull Me Up’ released late last year, 19-year-old Londoner Scott Verrill returns with some more infectiously melodic indie-pop guitar melodies and soulful vocals. Star rating: ****.5/5




ONLY GIRL - YOUNG BLOOD
South East London's Ellen Murphy works her haunting soul-diva vocals on R&B-infused melodies once again on this EP title track out on March 11 via Akira Records. Catch live tomorrow (March 1) at London's Electrowerkz. Star rating: ***.5/5




THE BRIEFING - FAVOURITE PLACE 
This title track from the just released EP by the Latvian four-piece, now residing in London where the home-recorded EP was produced. Interesting keys and programming effects with Kristina Dobele adding a delicate vocal touch to a catchy jangly electro beat. Star rating: ****/5




JAMIE MOON - OH, MY HEART
The Nottingham alt-folk singer/songwriter delivers an emotive touch on this title track from his new EP, out on Ukiyo Records, that builds up from solo guitar to work in some effective instrumentation. Lyrically, about "love and heartbreak, about blossoming romance and the fears of commitment." Star rating: ***.5/5




KARĂ“ - WOLFBABY 
21-year-old Reykjavik-born, Dundee-raised newcomer with her glitchy follow up to last year's ‘Silhoutte’. The trap-infused track of hypnotic vocals, and crystalline production by Logi Pedro, and guitar from his brother Unnsteinn Manuel (both members of Iceland’s Retro Stefson) is released on March 4. Star rating: ****/5
