Charming Liars – “Blame”

When a teenage Karnig Manoukian and Mike Kruger met in London’s West End, they decided to merge their eclectic musical tastes and began playing in a series of bands touring all over the UK. After a bold move to Los Angeles in 2013 they found chemistry with vocalist Kiliyan Maguire. They debuted with their 2013 EP “New Disorder” and recently toured with The Faim and Angels & Airwaves.

Giving refreshing contemporary indie-rock an anthemic chorus and sprinkling it with some neon flavors, their new single shines bright like the summer sun. Driven by a bouncy bass, gleaming guitars and a relentless rhythm, it blends modern sounds with some cool 80s rock vibes and with the slick and energetic vocals adding a sunlit sparkle, this spirited jam is a rockin’ good way to treat your ears.

Sazzie – “Hot Stuff”

Raised just outside London immersed in her parents’ 80s vinyl collection, this bouncy singer and songwriter grew up with the sounds of Tears For Fears, Prince and Depeche Mode. A multi-instrumentalist, she plays violin, drums and keyboard. With her band The Good Natured she opened for the likes of Imagine Dragons and Bastille. She debuted her solo sound on her single “Do You Work Out?” in 2018.

Splashing with red-hot 80s vibes, her new single radiates a multitude of neon flashes of New Wave and alternative pop. Sizzling with fiery retro synths, pastel pop tones and a touch of punk attitude, this groove is bursting with sonic yumminess. And with her sassy vocals singing the sexy, no-holds barred lyrics, this highly danceable sliver of fierce & infectious vintage extravagance truly is hot stuff.
