Top of my playlist this week is “Song for the Broken Hearted (Rollin)” by Berlin-based electro outfit Evvol. A dynamic synth odyssey that explores weighty, sobering themes with a radiant sonic-scape. Speaking on their recent work, the band says that “These songs were written looking inwardly at how we cope when faced with challenges – escaping into hedonism and really just running from the mad, fucked up world we live in.”
London electropop five-piece, Nimmo recently released their track “Orange Skies," from their new EP. The song is a slice of Nimmo's native London filled with spoken word verses, ominous basslines, and garage-influenced drums. It's a rumination on mortality revolving around a passionate cry of "Now that I'm here I'm going to show you who I am." A great track, with parts sounding almost like Everything but the girl. A really interesting track.
Up and coming artist Rebecca Taylor, AKA Self Esteem, has also shared a heavyweight version of a mash-up she recently pulled together for Jack Saunders’ Radio 1 show - taking The Walkmen classic ‘The Rat’ and merging it together with Lumidee’s ‘Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)’ for an absolute top-tapping groover!
