new music roundup: september 27
Here’s what we’re listening to (and watching!) at Lip this week!
Another – Seekae
After signing with Future Classic, Sydney-siders Seekae have come out with this slow-burning track. Moody and measured in a way nothing of theirs has been before, Another has a brooding quality about it that will imprint itself on your brain. The growth of Seekae as a band becomes clear on Another, and it’s one reason to get excited about what they’ll do next
Lovers in the Parking Lot – Solange
Although this track isn’t new, the clip is. Not that we need any more reasons to love The Other Knowles, but the beautiful visuals for this sweet, percussive single from 2012’s True have given us about 10. Namely, that Solange may be the world’s greatest/most stylish dancer. Clad in metallics, the party dress to end all party dresses and a sportswear/evening robe combo, the girl with the hair spills her heart while busting out some pretty 80-esque dance moves.
Reflections – Laura Wolfie
If this track is anything to go by, Laura Wolfie is someone you should keep your eye – and ear – on. The British singer/songwriter/producer is taking cues from the future R&B/dreamy, spacey sound that has been popularised by the likes of The Weeknd, and the result is an aural joy. The 21 year-old is just getting started, so definitely keep this one on your radar.
(Everything is) Debatable – Hellogoodbye
This track, taken off Hellogoodbye’s upcoming LP, is the perfect thing to see you in to the warmer months. It sounds like rooftop beers, music festivals and just hanging out on the grass, and we challenge you to listen to it without a smile on your face. On (Everything is) Debatable, these Californians have well and truly nailed the summery, feel good vibes.
I Wake – Hannah Rodgers
I Wake is the debut single from singer/songwriter Hannah Rodgers. Lulling and lingering, the track features a beautiful melody, woven around introspective, honest lyrics. There is nothing glaring or obvious about this track, instead it is subtle and intimate. If you like your music delicate and emotive, keep an eye on Hannah Rodgers!
Wrecking Ball – Haim
This year’s sisters-to-watch Haim dropped by the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, where they covered Miley Cyrus’ anthemic pop balled, Wrecking Ball. The ladies of Haim gave the track a ‘live band’ treatment that we haven’t seen in the original, and the result is a stunning rendition.
