London resident pure-pop genius Wolf Saga has been uncharacteristically quiet of late. We’re used to a furious pace of heartfelt, uplifting pop, either in the form of jawdropping covers or ever-more-impressive original EPs, and we had much fondness for 2015’s Waves. So we’re clutching his latest single “Keep Dancing” as if it might be the only new music we’ll get from Johnny Saga this year (but we hope not!). Crisp, minimal synths and a bouncy deep bass explode into a massive, emotionally charged chorus, and before you know it, you’re dancing along. Perhaps his best single yet!
“Keep Dancing” is available now from Wolf Saga’s Bandcamp.
The wondrous, meticulous, and psychedelic music of London electronic dream pop duo You’ll Never Get To Heaven seems to sound best when everything is blanketed with snow. Today we get to hear their first new single since 2014’s magnificent Adorn EP, the title track from what will be their third full-length album, Images. Yes, one of the members is a sometime Silent Shout contributor, but that won’t stop us for sharing this stunning, delicate, and utterly classic-sounding jam that finds the twosome hitting new ethereal heights.
Images is out March 24 on Yellow K Records, and is available for pre-order here.
Sometimes when underground electronic pop prodigies decide to sign with a big label and announce the good tidings, they do so with Alice Cooper covers. This is one of those times, and London‘s West Nile is one of those electronic pop prodigies, who is now signed to Last Gang. Her impossibly perfect-on-arrival debut EP (which was our #1 EP of 2015) has been an endless source of pure-pop pleasure since its release, so we’re unbelievably excited by the thought of more. This cover of Alice Cooper’s “Only Women Bleed” is a stunning, subtle, cavernous electro-ballad, and an extremely inventive take on the track. We may be swaying now, but we have a feeling we’ll be dancing uncontrollably to more new West Nile this year.
