Phoebe Ryan is one of the year’s fastest risingstars and Bearson is just about our favorite new producer in the game, and today the two come together in holy remix matrimony on a blissed-out Bearson rework of Ryan’s “Mine”. Making swift strides towards that Kygo throne with each passing day, Norway’s Bearson celebrates his 20th birthday today by following up one of the best remixes of the last year – his solid gold take on James Bay‘s “Let It Go” – with yet another pristine offering for “Mine”. Lose yourself below.
NYC’s finest Skaters return this week with fresh and freewheeling new single “Save Her Something Special”, the first taste of their forthcoming sophomore album. Produced and mixed by our own Noah Breakfast alongside the band themselves, it’s a hazy midsummer dream and the perfect soundtrack to the halcyon days ahead.
And just like that, Kiiara is three for three. Keeping things rolling from the knockout one-two punch of debut offerings “Gold” and “Tennessee“, Kiiara returns today with “Feels” as she enlists the beat services of our main man Brenton Duvall, working side by side here along with go-to Kiiara co-conspirator Felix Snow. Changing up the pace and pumping the brakes for a minute, “Feels” drops the top and drops the temp to subzero Drake temperatures, as Kiiara flows ice cold over pensive hip-hop percussion and swirling atmospherics. Feel all the feels below.
Our royal highness, Christine And The Queens, returned to our shores this week for a barnstorming run through Canada and New York, hitting Toronto and Osheaga over the weekend before bringing her magic to NYC for her network TV debut on Seth Myers and a very special underplay at The Box. And to celebrate her latest conquest, we’re rolling out a pristine new remix of her breakout stateside smash, “Tilted”. Joining forces once again with Parisian duo, Paradis – whose original remix of the French version, “Christine”, has already amassed a play count well into the millions globally – they work their magic on the English version here as tropical synths surrender to the heat of the night and Christine’s vocal shines its light from on high. It’s the stuff of dreams and hopefully not the last time Christine and Paradis meet under the stars. Fall for it below.
Sweden has been impossibly good to us over the years (see: Tove Lo, Seinabo Sey, Icona Pop, et. al), and today we return to the pop motherland as we welcome our newest signing to the Neon Gold family. Premiered worldwide by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 earlier today, the debut single from Stockholm’s newest prodigy – the song-writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Johanan – is a cinematic pop masterpiece, combining all the sky-scraping orchestral majesty of Jonsí and Sufjan Stevens, with shades of alt-J thrown in for good measure. ‘Go On (Let It Go)’, as it’s called, is one of the most purely magic and ambitious records we’ve ever released, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring it into the world this week. Available worldwide tomorrow through all digital partners, brace yourself for the all-consuming glory and dive into the stream below.
The Knocks‘ “Classic” was already an instant summer, well, classic when it first dropped last year, and today The King of Summer 2015 himself, Fetty Wap, jumps on the track to bless the original and take everything to a whole new level. All this hot on the heels of The Knocks’ sold out Music Hall of Williamsburg headline last night that featured special guest appearances from St. Lucia, Alex Newell, Phoebe Ryan and more. The Knocks’ debut album 55 arrives this fall on Neon Gold / Big Beat with a Webster Hall headline to follow November 20th (tickets on sale soon), get ready NYC.
LA sibling duo XYLØ have slowly but surely set the internet alight this year, arriving under cover of darkness with debut single “America” earlier this spring and cruising headstrong into summer with sophomore slowburner “Between The Darkness And The Deep Blue Sea” last month. Featuring heart-thumping Mulholland Drive production and brooding monochromatic synths, XYLØ’s latest “Afterlife” isn’t an Arcade Fire cover but packs a similarly dramatic punch. So put your sunnies on and dive in below, the future is impossibly bright for XYLØ.
Christine And The Queens has been steadily sweeping the nation since first popping up at SXSW and rolling out the Saint Claude EP alongside her sold out debuts in NYC and LA last spring. Today, we’re over the moon to announce her triumphant return to our shores, as Christine makes her late night television debut on Seth Meyers August 3rd, hot on the heels of a massive Osheaga play in Montreal that weekend. The day after, we’re teaming up with our friends at Aritizia and MATTE for a very special evening with Christine at The Box, the perfect venue for an intimate underplay and a magic night you won’t soon forget. Tickets are $25 and available now HERE, but act fast as they won’t last long.
Seinabo Sey – aka The Voice of 2015 - returns today with a midsummer heater announcing her forthcoming debut album later this fall. After setting our whole world on fire earlier this year with her debut For Madeleine EP and it’s instant classic singles “Younger” and “Hard Time”, she steps out with another burner on “Pretend” today. A friendship anthem about bright summer nights spent with the ones you love, the video features just that, as two friends flex around Stockholm from dusk til dawn backed by constantly building backbeat of Seinabo’s latest triumph. Make pretend above.
As we cruise onwards towards the dog days of summer, we’ve got our sights set on breezier pastures as we get set to escape to Montauk next month for our inaugural takeover of their famed Surf Lodge getaway. For two very special nights, we’re curating an all Neon Gold everything doubleheader August 29th and 30th featuring a knockout one-two punch of MS MR and BØRNS. Joining MS MR on the Saturday night are our favorite New England newcomers Photocomfort, with our girl VÉRITÉ rounding out the bill supporting BØRNS on Sunday. It’s all ages and free entry for all – but come *early* as it’s first come first serve and these things have been known to hit capacity early – so if you’re in the mood for some eternal sunshine this summer then meet us in Montauk on the 29th.
