Flight Facilities ft. Aloe Blacc – “Better Than Ever”

Formed in Sydney in 2009, this is an award-winning Australian duo, consisting of Hugo Gruzman and James Lyell, which focuses their talents on electronic music production. They first gained attention in 2010 with their single “Crave You” featuring Giselle Rosselli. They’ve played festivals like SXSW and Coachella and saw their debut full-length album “Down To Earth” earn gold status in 2014.

This time employing the astounding vocal cords of Aloe Blacc, their new single takes their electronic production into the world of soulful pop. With a pounding beat, gospel-like handclaps and a touch of added vocoder effects, it’s an invigorating feel-good pop track, dripping with passionate vintage soul. Blending gripping vocals with a joyous melody, they are definitely better than ever.

In The Spotlight

Fortnight In Florida – “I Can’t Wait Forever”

Having toured with Lianne La Havas as a keys player, singer and songwriter Simon Middleton met bassist and guitarist Eamonn Dawe and drummer Andrew Gallop and formed this London-based trio. Sharing a love of disco and synth pop, they debuted their retro-touched electro-pop sound on their first EP “So Long” in 2016 and made the Glastonbury Emerging Talent long-list in that same year.

With a pulsating bassline, radiating a neon glow at every pluck, their new single emerges from the depths of an 80s synthesizer. Touching on the New Romantic style of electronic pop, the reverberating beat and smoothness of the synths seamlessly meld together with the lustrous magic of the retro vocals, which will take you on a voltaic journey to yesteryear you don’t have to wait forever for.
