Adding to Mr. Little Jeans’s list of ethereal, dreampop reduxes of songs, she continues to stand out amongst all the other dream poppers.
“Sea” by Roosevelt is one of my favorite songs right now.
I discovered them while I was in the UK in February through the magic of the record label Greco-Roman.
Taking on the same kind of beachy sounds of bands like Surfer Blood, DIIV, and Swim Deep, Roosevelt then branches out to add in a disco-inspired bassline turning it into one of the danciest beach songs to rain down from the SoundCloud.
Lily Pejon is Portland‘s sultry frontwoman. When she’s not singing with electro beats, this Parisienne does covers of Angus Stone songs:
Blood diamonds are terrible. Rihanna’s “Diamonds” is overplayed.
Get a fresh feel for diamonds with this Plaitum track:
With only 247 Facebook fans but a haunting electro sound reminiscent of this music era’s other Scandinavian musicians such as Mr. Little Jeans of Norway, The Knife of Sweden, Mø of Denmark, Musique Le Pop is sure to start getting more indie famous.
Another dream pop track – this time brought to you by Little Daylight.
Perfect timing for Wednesday because it’s seriously a hump day track to bone to.
The UK has recently launched its response to Australia’s Kylie Minogue – DOLLS.
DOLLS is the electropo project of aptly (stage)named Nikki Awesome. Her voice sounds almost exactly like Kylie Minogue. In fact, “Now Now” sounds like a sped up version of “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” mixed with a dark wave bass beat in the background.
She even channels a little bit of Madonna in her outrageous outfits and makeup.
