Another week comes to an end, and there have been so many announcements getting us hyped for what’s coming up: J Hus has been announced for Lovebox, Steve Lacy has revealed his solo album, Tyler… did some kind of weird video no one seems to understand.
But forget what’s coming up, this week’s releases are a delicious way to sink into what’s happening right now: here’s five on it.
MorMor – Some Place Else EP
Toronto singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist MorMor makes music that’s a soft and gentle balm to all your woes. With his entrancingly delicate falsetto, this new EP certifies the hype – this is a gorgeous, exciting, spine-tingling kind of pop.
Kindness – ‘Lost Without’ ft. Seinabo Sey
A dreamy, danceable, disco-y track co-written with Kelela, topped with Seinabo Sey’s glorious vocals. We’re here for the bassline, the brass and – in general – the return of the excellent Kindness (if you’re not familiar, they’ve collaborated with everyone from Solange to Blood Orange to Robyn – get to know).
Kali Claire – ‘Fix My Lonely’
The latest track from the Hackney singer-songwriter is punchy, airy power-pop that comes ahead of the 20-year-old’s debut EP, Symptoms of a Teen.
MoStack – ‘Wild’
With giant teddy bears and breezy beats, the North Londoner’s latest has got us very ready for summer (and also for his debut album in June).
Pongo – Baia EP
This is a re-release from the rising Angolan-Portuguese electropop – it’s her debut EP, albeit a slightly extended version. It’s a euphoric, lush listen to get you dancing into your weekend. [Listen to the EP on Spotify]
