London Grammar – Rooting For You

london-grammar

On New Years Day, British trio London Grammar released their spine-tingling new track and performance video for “Rooting For You.” “New Year, new music” the band simply stated on their Facebook, Instagramand Twitter from Australia where they had headlined on New Years Eve at the annual Falls Festival in Byron Bay.

“Rooting For You,” is the first piece of new music to come from the band since 2014 and is available worldwide now on all digital platforms. Their breathtaking new performance video — directed by BISON — is available via the bands website http://www.londongrammar.com and can also be viewed here:

London Grammar emerged in 2013 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, If You Wait, and quickly went on to becoming one of the most exciting international breakthrough acts of recent times. Winning a prestigious Ivor Novello Award for their hit single ‘Strong’ and being nominated for a BRIT Award, the trio have since sold-out multiple headlining tours worldwide and have performed on high profile US TV shows such as ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, as well as the former NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman back in 2014.

“Rooting For You” is available on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.

tycho

Today, Tycho shares two new remixes of their first single ‘Division’ from the recent album Epoch, which is set for physical release on Jan 20th via Ghostly International.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith — fresh from her Pitchfork Best New Music-rated collaboration album with Suzanne Ciani, Sunergy — delivers a melting ambient epic while Heathered Pearls, a Ghostly staple, bolsters the dance elements of the original. In addition to the two remixes Tycho is also sharing a video for ‘Division’ that was filmed lived at their Red Rocks Amphitheatre performance on September 17 featuring official audio from the album.

Stream ‘Division (Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith Remix)’ & ‘Division (Heathered Pearls Remix)’:

Watch ‘Division’ live at Red Rocks (ft. official audio):

Epoch is the final album in the trilogy beginning with 2011’s Dive, then 2014’s Awake and culminating with this year’s Epoch (Ghostly International). This period between Dive and Epoch marks a significant maturation for Scott Hansen’s continually expanding project, one that has taken him from a solo performer to fronting a live 4-piece band on large stages across the world. Epoch hones the sonic aesthetic of Dive while drawing on the kinetic energy of Awake, it explores darker themes and new musical territory. Epoch is available digitally now and for physical pre-order now due out January 20.

This January, Tycho will embark on a world tour. The tour will begin on Jan 7 in Oakland, CA at the Fox Theater. From there Tycho will travel across four continents including Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.

Christine and The Queens – Saint Claude (Tourist Remix)

tourist

Today, UK electronic producer and GRAMMY award winner Tourist (William Phillips) shares his BBC Radio 1 Monki Afterparty session HERE and an incredibly touching remix for Christine and The Queens’ single “Saint Claude” HERE. The remix was premiered via Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show last Friday and the single is taken from Christine and The Queens groundbreaking breakthrough debut album.

See the BBC 1 Radio Monki afterparty session:

“Run”

“Too Late”

“U”

Last month, Tourist revealed his new music video for “U” (see here) and announced his February 2017 Australian headline shows. The video for “U” a co-direct project by frequent collaborator Jacob Robinson and multi-talent Dillon Moore.

A hypnotising visual piece, the video was directed by Jacob Robinson, the creative director who designed the U album cover and has worked with Tourist on a multitude of releases.

The visual translation follows on from the James Lewis-directed and Jacob Robinson art directed video for “Too Late,” which came off the back of the BBC Radio 1 playlisted track and Hype Machine #1 offerings, “Run” and “To Have You Back.”

Picking up a GRAMMY last year for his co-writer role on Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”, Tourist wrote debut album U over the course of several years. Taking the listener through the beginnings of a relationship to the parting of ways, the 10-track offering takes a more stripped back approach, following previous singles and EPs including 2015’s “Holding On” (ft. Josef Salvat & Niia) which clocked over 1.6 million SoundCloud streams.

Having toured his exquisite album throughout Europe and the U.S, including Pitchfork, Panorama and Bestival, fans will be treated to seeing this classically trained instrumentalist and producer perform his album live.
