Glaswegian artist Leif Coffield unleashes new single ‘Say My Name’

Released February 5th, ‘Say My Name‘ may have only been out for a short amount of time, but it’s certainly turning heads within the electro-pop world. Best described as innovative and easily able to become the next big thing in the industry, Leif Coffield has already gained support from the likes of CLASH, national BBC Radio and many sites across the web.

Say My Name‘ features electronic instrumentations and cutting lyricism. Exploring themes like tackling the feeling of being pressured in a relationship and the yearning to be set free again, the track conveys a mantra of self discovery and assurance.

On creating music and influences, Leif explains: “I try in each of my songs for them to have one unique element, or one distinguishing factor that sounds out of the ordinary and that separates it from the norm. I take a lot of inspiration from artists that endeavour to break the mould and refrain from operating within the confines of the mainstream...

Artists like Flume, FINNEAS, Kanye West, Bon Iver push the boundaries of the creative process. I would describe my music as if hip hop impregnated acoustic and gave birth to a baby that was raised in an electronic family. I always try to evoke emotion in the song whether it be through the instrumentation or accompanying vocal melody and lyrics.”

Say My Name‘ is out now, and deserves your ears to taste on.

Former Eurovision contender Waterflower releases industry-bending new single ‘Palm vs Palm’

To distinguish Waterflower as a unique artist is rather an understatement when considering her methods behind making music.

With a similar sound to that of Bjork and FKA Twigs, Latvian-born art student Sabine Moore (AKA Waterflower) is bending industry norms by using plants to produce her songs (Yes, plants).

Watch: Waterflower’s latest single, ‘Palm vs Palm’.

From using electromagnetic pulses to extract melodies from plants, to playing them live on stage as a living keyboard, Waterflower’s approach to making music is something we’ve never seen before.

“I started working with plant synthesisers in 2015 when I saw the Kickstarter project for the Ototo Synthesiser. I decided that this is what ‘Waterflower’ is all about, playing with plants as synthesiser keys.”

WATERFLOWER, ON HER INTRODUCTION TO PLANT-BASED MUSIC.

‘Palm vs Palm’ is the latest example of her work that previously saw her just miss out on representing her home nation at Eurovision. With the song title derived from the plant which she used to make it, Waterflower’s latest tune is a cacophony of delicate strings, wobbling synthesisers, thudding drums and effortlessly controlled vocals.

Having toured Europe, receiving rave reviews from the likes of The Playground and Resonance FM, Waterflower’s individuality and creativity has seen her gain significant attention.

From the looks of ‘Palm vs Palm’, Waterflower’s upcoming album Balta Gaisma will be innovative, experimental and somewhat extraordinary.

Check out ‘Palm vs Palm’ as part of the new album set to drop on September 28th, or listen now on all major streaming platforms.

One to Watch: Marco Dalla Villa

Bursting onto the DJ scene both in London and on the continent, Marco Dalla Villa is bringing a fresh flavor to the dance floor.

Moving to UK from Italy, at the tender age of 19, Marco had big dreams to build a career in music, even if it meant breaking away from his home and his family. Having started performing and exploring his musical talents from 16 years old, it was in London where he developed his sound and experience, playing across the capital. Working as a delivery man to fund his aspirations, the DJ began cross-continental collaborations with artists from all over the globe to create exciting new material.

When gigging, Marco likes to connect with his audience members, saying “Dance music can be much more than just a strong kick and bass” and that he doesn’t “follow any music genre, I put emotions into the dance floor”. His musical ability, however, is not just born from his personal feelings, the producer started learning piano from the age of 4, as well as studying music theory and composition.

He is now preparing to officially release his music for the first time, and with a catalogue of dance tracks inspired by the likes of Eiffel 65 and Klaas, there is no doubt you’ll be hearing him on your next night out. Keep your eyes and ears peeled.

A dose of French electro-swing with ‘Alors Je Danse’ – the latest dance track from No-Ce and her band

After a successful run at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Cecile Nordegg (No-Ce) and her band have taken their unique mélange of Edith Piaf-esque chanson and Frank Zappa musical stylings to yet another unexpected destination – dance,

Alors Je Danse is their first release from the forthcoming album and sees them adapting their sound to a more electronic genre, an adaptation that is flawless in its transition. The track is carried by Cécile’s rich vocals and flirts stylistically with the wave of electro-swing that combines the elements of jazz and electronic melodies – a combination that has the demanding effect of dance.

Previously a successful film and TV actor, Cécile is backed by a band of outstanding musicians who have already made names for themselves: JP Chiche on guitar and background vocals (previously having shared the stage with everyone from Aerosmith to Fats Domino) and Andreas Pirringer on sax, flute and clarinet and Walter Bass on piano – just to name a few.

Their previous release, Jazz Proclamation Vol. 1&2 was a collection of tracks which transcended language and genre and Alors Je Danse looks set to achieve similar cross-over success with fans of dance music.
