Swede dream Marlene recently brought her Scandinavian pop majesty to the Popshop stage for the first time, and continues her triumphant return this week with brand new single “All I Want”. All shimmering confetti synths and heart-bursting melodies, it’s a blissed-out summertime serenade that marks a welcome return for one of Sweden’s hottest tips.
Now this a STATEMENT. In a stunning first look, WILLS comes through to fuck your whole summer up with one of the year’s biggest debuts. Like Kanye and TV On The Radio teaming up to score a David Fincher thriller, “Woes vs Whoas” is bombastic, eviscerating and completely unhinged in the best way possible.
Five years we’ve been doing this little party called Popshop, from its humble LES roots at Tammany Hall in 2011, on to Santos Party House and Westway and, most recently, across the bridge to our current home at Baby’s All Right. And to mark the occasion we’ve put together a very special lineup of Neon Gold all stars past, present and future, as we welcome Foxes back to the Neon Gold stage in a special underplay around her stadium dates supporting Coldplay. Joining her will be our Neon Gold superstars of tomorrow, Tigertown, plus many more special guests to be announced soon. It’s all going down July 18th at Baby’s All Right, with $15 tickets now available HERE.
Summer is here and with it arrives another installment of Stars + Stripes, as we celebrate SIX YEARS of our annual charity festival on Martha’s Vineyard. This year’s a particularly special one, as the fest will mark the last show ever at the historic venue (originally founded as the Hot Tin Roof by Carly Simon in the 1970’s), before it shutters it’s doors for good later this summer.
Topping the bill are Boston’s Magic Man – who’s own Sam Lee was raised on island – and our beloved Tigertown, who make their triumphant return to the States all the way from Down Under, plus LA heatseekers XYLØ and local favorites Crooked Coast getting things started early. As usual, it’s all going down for a very good cause, with 100% of proceeds going to the Martha’s Vineyard YMCA. Mark your calendars for July 2nd at Flatbread Company and cop your $30 advance tickets right HERE. Let the fireworks begin.
SVĒ‘s been one of our favorite unsigned writers in NYC for a long minute now, and today she returns with one of her strongest offerings to date on brand new single “Paint A Picture”. With Gaga-esque vocal fireworks and guns blazing synthwork, “Paint A Picture” is a barnstorming pop heater that offers a perfect taste of what’s to come Wednesday night at Baby’s All Right, as SVĒ makes her Popshop debut supporting Flor and Cleopold. Tix still available HERE, get involved New York.
Local heroes Savoir Adore make their triumphant return with third album The Love That Remains later this summer, and there’s no better reminder of what we’ve been missing than larger-than-life lead single “Giants”. Now today it gets a spectacular dance floor makeover courtesy of Finnish remix superstar, Lenno, who takes it for a spin down a palm tree-lined highway to heaven. Exclusive premiere below.
“Tied To You” was, is and continues to be our favorite sleeper hit on The Knocks‘ album and today it finally gets its moment in the spotlight, as the guys give the Justin Tranter-led heater the VIP treatment on the latest and greatest cut off their forthcoming 55.5 EP.
Following in the footsteps of Oscar & The Wolf, Felix Pallas are the latest pop noir upstarts looking to put Belgium back on the map. New single “Curse” is their latest trick, a bewitching power ballad straight from the heart, packed with all the spiraling synths and sweltering vocals we could ever ask for (heavensent falsetto included). It’s a blessing from the skies and an auspicious second outing from the Antwerp four piece, fresh on the scene but currently shooting lights out. Fall under their spell with “Curse” now.
Cleopold‘s been burning a hole in our soul for a minute now, since first stepping out in his scene-stealing feature for Miami Horror on our Colours In The Sky 7″ a few years back before returning to change the game with his Chet Faker-tipped debut single “Down In Flames” last summer. Next Wednesday, the Down Under sensation hits our stage for the very first time in his NYC debut, joined by Los Angeles heatseekers FLOR and Brooklyn’s own SVE, whose debut single “Riot” remains one of the biggest unsigned records we’ve heard in ages. It’s all going down June 15th at Baby’s All Right, with advance tix now available HERE.
Casi is a brand new Welsh songstress taking her first steps into the world this week with impressive aplomb. Debut single “Lion” roars to life with all the epic balladry of early Florence, all the while bringing to mind a young Ellie Goulding if she hailed from the Game of Thrones universe or whatever planet Kate Bush is from. Produced to soaring perfection by principle MØ collaborator Ronni Vindahl and labeled up by our good friends at Chess Club, it’s out now and emphatically establishes Casi as one to watch in the weeks and months to come. Get familiar.
