Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
Miller Blue - Rhythm in the Dance
Despite growing up in a sleepy UK town, Benjamin Joseph Edwards, or Miller Blue has an international sound that is anything but reminiscent of his roots. Citing influences such as Frank Ocean, James Blake and Erykah Badu, his releases to date are triumph of modern soul. Rhythm in the Dance focuses on the more upbeat side of the soul music spectrum, with lyrics of a joyful nature addressing finding happiness in the norm that paired together make for a real mood lifter of a track.
KOYO - Jettisoned
5 piece psychedelic rockers KOYO have tirelessly touring since their self titled album last year which was met with critical acclaim. Described as Radiohead meets Hawkind, the band have teamed up with filmmaker Nathan Erasmus to explore various sci-fi themes in the visuals for Jettisoned. This collaboration appears to be a perfect pairing as both audio and video are as weird and wonderful as each other.
Charlotte Black - Nobody Else
Scottish songstress Charlotte Black finalises a trilogy of recent releases with Nobody Else, lamenting on the rollercoaster of summer love, addressing sensations of not wanting Nobody Else. Her syrupy sweet musings are the perfect compliment to the summery production, that’s the perfect soundtrack for a warm, introspective moment.
These Brittle Bones - Healing
Chris Jones, the London-based Singapore raised musician behind These Brittle Bones has been sharpening his songwriting skills since he was just 12. Jones now 19, has a strong back catalogue of successful music. Latest offering Healing is a deep electro pop cut that’s ahead of the curve that makes for a gripping experience in both production and vocal performance.
