Unlike the UK’s recent weather and politics, this week’s new releases have been rather more consistent. From electric Afro-Futurism to Hollywood strings and vocals, Fresher Sounds has the best pick of new sounds to kickstart your week.
Fresher Sounds // Cover by MeddiesBABii – POiiSON BABii has unveiled new single ‘POiiSON’ alongside a remix of the track by Monkeytown Records signed artist, CATNAPP. Her electro-tinged pop has a unique flare, placing her in a similar calibre to Billie Eilish’s industrial, haunting beats. BABii sings about being in a toxic relationship, the dark lyrics contrasting with her sweet vocals. Decay - Lullaby ‘Lullaby’ is the latest single from Liverpool emo newcomers, DECAY. As the closing track to the upcoming debut EP, Modern Conversation, ‘Lullaby’ succinctly draws a line under the main themes of alcoholism and family rifts, as vocalist Danny Reposar explains, “This song mainly tells the story of when I gave up trying to help my dad overcome his alcoholism and moved on with my own life”. Honey Moon – Magic London jangle-pop group Honey Moon have revealed new single ‘Magic’ and it sounds as if it's been pulled straight from the classic songbook, replete with saturated Hollywood strings and swooning vocals. ‘Magic’ is true to its title and is cinematically expansive, calling out for dreamy late-night moments. Joviale - Ride Away 'Ride Away' is the second single from JOVIALE, channelling a charming coyness and sincerity. Twin realities of pleasure and pain permeate her vocal aesthetic as she explains that "an escape into the unknown will always be dangerous but also really exciting". Her soundscape treasures a variety of cultures, informed by a love of 60s icons. Empara Mi – Blood in The Water (Orchestral Version) Reworking the original track with an expressive musicality, ‘Blood in The Water’ by Empara Mi has been scored orchestrally to coincide with the release of the single’s video. The latest re-imagining is a post-pop specimen as a foreboding atmosphere places emphasis on striking vocals amid an emotionally poignant soundscape.
