MGMT share delightfully morbid new track off new album set for 2018

This post was originally published on this site

MGMT is charting an ominously morbid, gothic return with their latest track, the aptly-named “When You Die.”

Confronting the concept of death, vocalist Andrew VanWyngarden sings, “You die / and words don’t do anything.” Continuing, “It’s permanently night / and I won’t feel anything.”

A buoyant melody and driving synth aid in the exuberance of a most blissful multitude on the new track. It’s both enveloping and enthralling, all while the video’s protagonist flys through a blissful void of seemingly meaningless activities, and a sea of space when he passes.

“When You Die” is akin to the very ethos of the synth-pop stars. VanWyngarden lashes out on the track, “Go fuck yourself / You heard me right / Don’t call me nice, again,” all while simultaneously encapsulating the introspective lyrics and dazzling dexterity of group that seems to be charting a momentous return.

Little Dark Age is due out in February of 2018 and will serve as a follow-up to the band’s self-titled LP of 2013. While its release date and tracklist have yet to be announced, they’ve been performing new tracks from the record while on tour, and have an array of festivals they’re set to appear at.

Ardency – Bloom

This post was originally published on this site

Ardency has released their newest single “Bloom.” The mysterious group is self described as “a work in progress by Christian Gomez and Daniel Noguera – for as long as it takes.”

Alluring synths and haunting vocal tenors of the group sound like sonic liquid washing over a roof during a rainstorm: brooding, yet oddly satisfying. The release comes after the release of three subsequent EPs titled MechanismHoney Moon, and For You, Only, where Ardency’s peculiar personas directly reflect in each body of work. Their newest single continues this eclectic theme, and is melancholic ear candy for indie pop fans.

Henry Saiz debuts first track off of forthcoming album

This post was originally published on this site

Spanish progressive & electronica star Henry Saiz has released the first taste of his forthcoming Kickstarter-funded album Human, which he will be releasing as Henry Saiz & Band. He raised over €73,000 for the project, which saw him travel to different corners of the earth to record in unusual natural settings and with unexpected local collaborators.

“The Golden Cage,” is an indie electronica hybrid with breathy vocals shimmering over slow-motion beats and a languid bassline as melancholy chord progressions play out through glistening synths. Saiz commented on this debut single and his inspiration for the project. He also notes that “The Golden Cage” was inspired by Dubai.

We were interested in those places that reveal aspects of what it means to be human, for better or for worse. It’s one of those places, a mirage that rises as if by magic in the middle of what until a few years ago was only desert, a place of wonders that hides a dark side, just like we all do.

“The Golden Cage” certainly leaves listeners wanting more. Humans’ full release date is yet to be announced.

Mako releases first single as solo act, ‘Breathe’

This post was originally published on this site

All has been quiet on the Mako front ever since the duo of Alex Seaver and Logan Light saw Light depart. Seaver has now released his first single as a solo act, and the track, “Breathe,” is out now on Ultra Records.

The melodic track mixes rock, pop, and electronic elements to create a flowing track that can only be describes as pleasant. Seaver commented on his feelings that helped to shape the track.

The track is built around a pained style: a personal and soft voice telling an uplifting story…it’s ultimately something that’s powerful and moving, but it doesn’t come without a little bit of pain attached to it as well.

Upon the release of “Breathe”, Mako will head out on a 33-date North American tour in January of 2018 that envisions the project as a live four-piece featuring a guitarist, violinist, and drummer alongside Seaver on vocals and keys. See if Mako is coming to a city near you here.

November has come to an end and with it has been some supreme new music. We’ve taken to compiling the best under the radar remixes that caught our eye over the last month. From future bass and indie dance to deep and tech house, this joyous jaunt will surely have something for everyone to dance to.


DA Launchpad Selects:

Post Malone – “I Fall Apart (SLANDER Remix)”

The impassioned godsend of Post Malone‘s “I Fall Apart” from Slander was re-uploaded to SoundCloud this week. Thankfully, the’s two’s bass modification of Posty’s tune has made its rightful return to listeners eardrums. And certainly, a remix playlist of our favorites over the last month would not be complete without this tear-jerker of a track.

Virtual Self – “EON Break (Nick Gunner Remix)”

November saw out the arrival of Porter Robinson‘s mysterious new alias Virtual Self. At last, Virtual Self had made his technic-utopian debut, marking both a significant departure from his seminal Worlds and a venture into unbeknownst territory for the entire EDM ecosystem. Of course, the artist’s new tunes were a glorious, refreshing bestowal, but the swiftly rising Chicago-based producer Nick Gunner has taken it upon himself to expand upon the astral grandeur of “EON Break” — and we’re certainly glad he did, as Gunner stuns on his rework. In widening the track’s beginning he’s created a captivating addition to an already cherished number, only continuing to point at his searing potential.

Thanksgiving is over, it’s still a month until Christmas, which means there remains a long stretch of winter ahead. That’s why we created this indie dance playlist for you, to share some tunes that will help you make it through the period of finals, end of year reviews, and a glut of holiday music. Check out these tracks, filled with downtempo goodness, soulful vocals, and just the right amount of drum kick.

DA Launchpad Selects:

LYOD – “Love It Or Leave It”
The cover art might tip you off: the palm trees tell you what you need to know about this laidback, dancehall inspired gem. Maybe it’s the warm colors or the reggae-infused vocals. Either way, from the very first horns of the track, it’s easy to tell that this one is a vibe. Bringing a perfect balance of relaxation and dance notes, this one is sure to keep you warm this winter.

Wyclef Jean – “What Happened To Love (N8VBOY Remix)”
This remix by N8VBOY combines a lot of what we love about remix culture in general. Take a quality original and reimagine it into a completely new lane. In this case, it comes in the form of the pitched down vocals of the chorus, combined with the unmistakable voice of Sir Wyclef himself. When it comes time for the drop, things hit in just the right way; it comes in the form of a groove rather than a departure from the rest of the track.


LYOD – “Love It Or Leave It”
ID3 – “Blossom (feat. LaMeduza)”
Hollywood Principle – “If Only (feat. AL3JANDRO)”
Overjoy – “Women”
