Rormix Picks returns to the regular Tuesday scheduling this week and this might just be the best batch yet. With another batch of five tunes for you to enjoy, the app shines through as being a true beacon in the search for the finest new music. This is getting a bit too gushy for my liking, sorry… Moving on very swiftly indeed, here are this week’s top five – click the images to watch the videos etc. Enjoy;
Other Lives – 2 Pyramids
If you listen with an intent ear to Other Lives’ lush, layered beatific musical creations, it’s hard not to imagine the singer-musical maestro crafting his next opus.
13 years since they first began playing together in their native Oklahoma, Other Lives, which includes Josh Onstott and Jonathon Mooney, remain focused on the search for audible clarity: their next expression, their next melody, their next rhythm. Rituals, the band’s third and latest full-length album, is a pure encapsulation of the trio’s relentless drive for precision.
Antonio Gram – Demons ft. Emma Sehested & ELOQ
Esben Valløe is the man behind the electro project Antonio Gram, an electronic artist based out of Berlin, Germany. After more than 200 shows in 25 countries with the Danish indie rock group Reptile Youth, Esben Valløe is going solo and getting back to his roots; electro music.
Antonio Gram’s first video has just been released, featuring two fellow Danes, vocalist Emma Sehested and producer ELOQ. Truly a new interesting sound and we here at Bast can’t wait to hear more!
Tora – Jaigantic
The name Tora derives from the Greek word ‘τώρα’ meaning now. The concept of Tora was conceived in the later months of 2012 and came together as a 5 piece act in early May 2013. They made their EP in a garage and since have made this amazing video.
The past twelve months or so have been absolutely insane for emerging Australian music, with the land down under offering up a plethora of fantastic new artists, particularly those with of an electronic orientation. Tora manage to keep their music remarkable personal and intimate, fluctuating between R&B infused choruses and straight up anthemic, radio friendly numbers.
The Millenium – Take Me
Breaking into the scene in early May opening for The Summer Set, the group has since been hard at work playing shows, showcasing their music, and meeting new people. Within a few short months the band has successfully completed numerous midwest and east coast tours securing a loyal fanbase and finding a place in their hearts with their debut EP, “It’s So Much Friendlier With Two”.
Incorporating realms of indie, acoustic and electronic styles in a sometimes eclectic fashion, one is sure to appreciate a genuine sound showcasing undeniably catchy and melodically driven tracks intertwined with a playful and inventive blend of acoustic guitar and keyboard.
Delamere – Headstrong
After signing to Manchester independent Scruff of the Neck Records in 2014, and having the backing of BBC Introducing DJ Rob Adcock, Delamere now have the support to help take them to the next level on both the regional and national scene. Expected to play some notable support slots and festivals over the next 18 months to coincide with their releases, the band are certainly dubbed as ‘ones to watch’.
