After Nyne Weekend Playlist 1/5/15

This Works

We’re back again with another soundtrack for your weekend!  Don’t forget to share this with your friends and tweet the list @AfterNyne.

Youth Club – Breathe

The four piece band from South-on-Sea released their sophomore EP in March this year, following on from the phenomenal response to their single ‘People’, the lads premiered ‘Breathe’ on Radio 1 last week.  Described by The 405 as  ‘the lovechild of Two Door Cinema Club and Phoenix’, we love the bands summery vibes and can’t wait to hear more from them!

Michelle O Faith – Sleep Through The Fire

‘Sleep through the fire’ is the first single from London based singer Michelle O Faith.   This quirky track seamlessly blends elements of trip-hop with traditional songwriting, showcasing not just her extensive vocal range, but the multi-faceted nature of her voice.   The gorgeous songstress effortlessly transitions between her pop vocal and a refined operatic technique like a pro.

Lunacre – Engine

Split between Cambridge and London, the enigmatic electro-indie quintet have released their latest single.  Their sound is reminiscent of Radiohead, Vondelpark and Mount Kimbie, creating a  heady amalgamation of noise.

‘Engine’ darts between flitters of charmingly discordant guitar and deconstructed electronic noise. Melancholic vocals and lethargic guitar redolent of James Blake, collide with a jazzy trip-hop infused Madchester-esque rhythm and bass section which is strewn with bizarre yet apposite samples throughout.

Caro Emerald – Quicksand

Since the release of her 2010 multi-platinum debut album ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’ Caro Emerald has fashioned her own niche. Gorgeous and stylish, Caro blends retro jazz with sampling and modern pop to create a now signature sound.

Pale Honey – Tease

Here at After Nyne, we’re already big fans of Pale Honey and their new single does not disappoint!  The Gothenburg duo’s ‘Tease’ tones down the crunch of their guitars and puts the focus on a lyrics and melody, peppered with hum of synths.

Red Kites – Cast Away

Formed in Guildford, Surrey in 2010 after meeting at music college, the five-piece combo comprise Moteh Parrot, lead vocals and guitar; Liam Trevor, lead guitar;  Andrew Reeves, drums and backing vocals; J.J. Fernandez, bass; Jan Cees Samson, keys, backing vocals and percussion. Front man and songwriter Moteh hails from Inverness and the Highlands are their spiritual home, an influence that is reflected in much of their music, which balances a raw Celtic-tinged alt-rock with an unpredictability which is entirely their own.

The boys kick off their tour in Brighton tonight to showcase their new EP ‘Circles’
