Hide your kids, hide your wives, there’s a new Noah Breakfast remix coming over the hill. The Philly prince’s remix outings are rare but powerful events, and when one does pop up in the feed they tend to make their presence known. This time out he takes on dystopian Down Under crooner Jarryd James, giving his double platinum Australian smash “Do You Remember” a new lease on life with a downright seismic makeover, as Noah flips the R&B slowburner into a future classic fireball. Get lifted below.
As you may already know, we’re over the moon to welcome Sydney’s Tigertown to the Neon Gold / Atlantic family. Hot on the heels of a lights out Popshop debut last night, their stellar Lonely Cities EP arrives tomorrow, and the Collins family make it really fucking real with the latest cut off the record today. Like Miami Horror on an all time high with euphoric shades of The Go! Team‘s early output, “Make It Real” shimmers incandescently with an tropical bounce that slings you to the stars and back. Lonely Cities is out tomorrow digitally and on limited edition transparent orange 10″ vinyl, get yours HERE or cop IRL on the band’s tour with St. Lucia kicking off next week.
There’s something magnetic about Annabel Jones that we can’t quite put our finger on. And now with a debut EP on the way co-produced by none other than the Postal Service‘s Jimmy Tamborello, she’s ready to take things to the next level in the international spotlight. Brand new single “IOU” arrived yesterday and marks a resplendent return to form, stringing together all the best parts of Imogen Heap and Ellie Goulding on the way to 2.5 minutes of postal pop perfection. Get reacquainted below.
You’re about to get real familiar with TRACES. At 18 years young, the Los Angeles-via-San Diego upstart makes his presence known today with his debut single, “Share Your Love”. All heartquaking vocals and Jack Ü-esque production sounding like Jaymes Young chopped and screwed into digital oblivion; it’s half Arabesque, half futuristic, and 100% earworm. And with a high profile watch sync already under his belt, TRACES is definitely one to keep an eye on. Exclusive premiere below.
There’s a new local trio of alt pop heatseekers in the mix and they go by the name A R I Z O N A. The newest rising stars of the Atlantic Records family along with our very own Tigertown, they’re ready for the big leagues and take their first steps towards that destiny tonight at Popshop. Recorded between LA, New Jersey, and the UK in an old Toyota but bringing to mind the wide open landscapes of their namesake, single “I Was Wrong” is equal parts laid back and blissed out, a sleeper anthem that takes the open road and makes it feel like home. A R I Z O NA make their *sold out* Popshop debut tonight at Baby’s All Right supporting Savoir Adore and Tigertown on a triple crown bill for the ages, come out and find a way in.
Frances Rose have been sitting pretty as the goth pop starlets of the Lower East Side for a long minute now, but this week they return with their strongest bid yet for the NYC alt pop throne in the form of new single “Dangerous”. Like the perfect midpoint between the soft pop heartbreak of Shura and the pure 80’s e•mo•tion of Carly Rae, “Dangerous” is a Dev Hynes-esque LES rooftop stunner that’s here just in time to melt away the NYC winter. Get dangerous below.
It’s been a minute since the hooded Aussie chanteuse, Hoodlem, first caught our eye back in 2013 but it was love at first listen and we’re still sprung nearly three years on. Today, the duo’s back with new single “Kintsugi”, which strings together atmospheric soul-bearing vocals with elegant trip-hop touches, as they breaks apart the beat and piece it back together with a golden touch. It’s a salve for all the broken hearts out there and a welcome return for Hoodlem, get reacquainted below.
After a long stretch touring and promoting their lunar eclipse of a debut album, No Moon At All, LA’s Wildcat! Wildcat! return today with their first breath of new material in a minute. Produced by the band with Ran Jackson, “Straight To The Top” starts from the bottom and, well, now we’re here. Striking out with a more uptempo rhythm than the brooding moonless sky of their debut but retaining all the sun-kissed harmonies we’ve come to know and love from the band, it’s a promising taste of things to come on their forthcoming sophomore effort. Dive in below.
The Knocks and Louis The Child are two of the fastest-rising names in American dance music, and this week they join forces in unholy remix matrimony as the regal Chicago duo take their NYC counterparts for a technicolor waltz set to the tune of “I Wish”. Hot on the heels of their internet-shattering (10 million plays and counting) debut single “It’s Strange”, Louis take The Knocks’ T Swift love letter and remix it into candy-coated oblivion on one of their finest offerings to date. Check the rest of the “I Wish” remix package here and catch The Knocks selling out venues coast-to-coast on the Route 55 Tour, and don’t forget to get your preorder in for their debut album 55, arriving March 4th on Big Beat / Neon Gold.
Earlier this month, we introduced Tigertown as the newest members of the Neon Gold family, and today they take things to the next level with the grand unveiling of their debut single proper, “Lonely Cities”. Like “Dancing On My Own” before it, “Lonely Cities” channels heartsick emotion into triumphant vulnerability, as Tigertown deliver a long distance anthem for the ages. The end result is three minutes of shimmering alt radio bliss, weaving together tropical pop guitars and a soaring house piano chorus amidst surging brass and pulsing bass grooves. It’s bigger than you, it’s bigger than me, it’s bigger than ALL of us, and we couldn’t be happier to bring it into the world next month on Neon Gold. The Lonely Cities EP is out February 5th and available for preorder digitally now and on transparent orange vinyl in the Neon Gold Shop, preceded by the band’s Popshop debut supporting Savoir Adore next Wednesday (last few tickets here).
