Premiere: Le Roi Crocodile – Night

Prolific Vancouver bedroom electronic pop artist Le Roi Crocodile keeps the semi-somnambulent hits coming in 2016 with “Night”, a dark, melancholy soft-pop single which we’re stoked to be premiering here today. Featuring his characteristic auto-tune, and his knack for simple, subtle arrangements, this time Le Roi kicks things up a notch by adding some background arpeggiated synths that really propel the tune forward in the effortlessly catchy chorus.

“Night” is the first single from a new album, which we absolutely can’t wait to hear. In the meantime, check out Le Roi Crocodile’s back catalogue on Soundcloud.

Premiere: Tend & See – Migrations

A few months ago, we found ourselves utterly captivated by Vancouver duo Tend & See‘s mesmerizing soft electronic pop debut Migrations, an EP that still stands up as one of the best of the year. And today, we’re very fortunate to have the opportunity to debut the video for the title track.

A time-lapse travelogue that shifts from a car dashboard traveling from city streets to plains to planes, beaches to tundra, it’s a beautiful accompaniment to the delicate, immersive “Migrations”. The sped-up pace of the imagery contrasts excellently with the meditative but propulsive song. A massive amount of footage must have been required to pull this one off, and there’s some especially remarkable shots capturing two polar bears sparring. Glad the director kept their distance!

Tend & See are on the verge of releasing a remix EP, which we’re very excited to hear. It’s out June 1 on Abandon Building Records and is available now for pre-order from Bandcamp.

Too Attached, the Toronto/Vancouver sibling duo whose debut EP Bronze basically blew our minds are back again with a deeply grooving electro-hip-hop single called “Getalife”. A bonus track from Bronze, it riffs on samples from Nita Shahzad and is easily the equal of the any songs from the actual EP. So impressed!

If you’re in Toronto, Too Attached perform this Friday opening for LAL at their Find Safety release party. Don’t miss it! “Getalife” is available now, PWYW from Bandcamp.
