Natalie Shay is an indie-pop artist hailing from North London. The multi-award-winning musician has established an ever-growing presence and loyal fanbase through her explosive live performances and unforgettable anthems, recognising her as one of the UK’s hottest emerging talents. With indie synth pop leanings and ferocious guitar playing, Shay’s references range from Haim and Taylor Swift to Little Comets. Her relatable lyrics touch on love, self-discovery and the everyday experiences of a twenty-something.  

Combining her youthful and charismatic aura with her classical training and time spent at the prestigious BRIT School, Shay has finessed the ability to produce undeniably catchy music, whilst maintaining musical maturity. Soaring back into the scene with her highly anticipated EP MILK, Shay’s dynamic abilities continue to flourish. Inspired by the theme of growth, MILK makes reference to the lyrics “Milk Teeth” in “Good Girl Behaviour”. Shay confides, “Every track is about growth or new beginnings or reflecting on myself, in particular, heaven and outgrow. I always write from the heart and from my own experiences and stories. My whole aim with lyricism is to connect with others who are in that frame of mind now or have been there in the past to relate.” 

Each track on MILK explores different key feelings and experiences sensed when writing during the lockdown. She continues, “I hope I can inspire other girls, in particular, to get into songwriting as so many female singer/ songwriters inspired me to do so and it’s saved, changed and made my life.” Collaborating with different creatives across all five tracks, there’s an overarching warmth to MILK. Shay’s melodious abilities soar with catharsis, as she strives to capture key moments of her life through her music. At her core, she’s a remarkable storyteller, one that continues to break boundaries and trailblaze into her own realm of indie pop from the soul. 

Shay continues to pique the interest of audiences across the globe. Garnering attention from notable publications such as Billboard, Clash and The Line of Best Fit, to name a few, Natalie also performed “New Wave” on CBBC’s “Saturday Mash Up!” late last year, and has landed on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist in 12 countries. She has also worked on EDM tracks with the likes of Grum and Kryder, racking up millions of streams to date. Having sold out venues across London, most recently the Camden Assembly and Oslo, tickets are now on sale for Natalie Shay’s upcoming headline show at The Omeara in London on 25th November. After a very big summer appearing at renowned festivals such as Reading, Y Not, Hyde Park BTS and 110 Above, it looks like 2022 will continue to be an explosive year.

July 6, 2022 Phantoms share new song ‘Letting Me Go’  from upcoming album

Indie-dance duo Phantoms share new single ‘Letting Me Go’ from forthcoming album “This Can’t Be Everything”.  Speaking of the new single, Phantoms say: “Letting Me Go” is the first song on our album coming in August. It was another one we wrote pretty early on in the album process and tried to incorporate a lot of the sounds we felt characterized the record. It’s still dance driven with synthesizers and punchy drums, but we also wanted it to feel euphoric and melancholy, like you could float away while listening to it.

Phantoms have come into their own and taken a new approach to their music following monumental personal and professional life changes and through those experiences have created some of their most dynamic and transcendent music to date. The two were officially signed to Foreign Family Collective earlier this year, (founded by electronic giant ODESZA in 2015) and since have had the freedom to explore new and exciting creative avenues with their music.

With previous support from NPR, Billboard, Stereogum, Earmilk + more and over 125 million streams across platforms, the duo has solidified themselves as one of the most promising acts entering 2022, with lots more on the horizon. Their recent string of singles including, ‘Lay It All on Me’ featuring UK based singer-songwriter Jem Cooke and ‘Firepit’ with electronic producer/composer, Big Wild, have received incredible support from playlisting across the globe as well as continued radio support worldwide including heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM, SiriusXM (Diplo’s Revolution & BPM) + KCRW, triple j and more.

October 25, 2021 Indie synth-pop magic with Tee Dee Dees ‘Slim Bears’

Indie synth-pop magic with Tee Dee Dees ‘Slim Bears’

Indie synth-pop project Tee Dee Dees has just released his sophomore single, ‘Slim Bears’ via Alaska Music. This follows his single ‘War’ which was recently premiered by Clash Magazine.

Based in Tel-Aviv, writer, editor, and musician, Ori mark is the creative force behind Tee Dee Dee’s. His work has been likened to the likes of  Interpol, Placebo and Depeche Mode.

The driving vocals and undulating rock tempo on ‘Slim Bears’ is a mix that really resonates, even if the ride can be a little jittery. The track centres around close personal relationships, the need for solitude, and realising when dreams should remain just that – dreams.

Ori Mark explains: “I have all kinds of non-realistic dreams, like starting a community in the desert – a lot of music, some sixties atmosphere, some Buddhism, I don’t know. Stupid dreams. In the end, I find it hard to keep close relationships even with my loved ones. I guess this song suggests to make some efforts and keep your circle close before choosing to be alone”.

Previously featured on RCRD LBL (read feature) with song ‘Night Light’, acclaimed producer Marcus James and the reputable duo RYYZN released their  Warning Sign(Stripped) EP via Physical Presents on Friday, and we are still hooked. RYYZN are a Vancouver-based duo comprised of David York and Jessie Elias who come from Calgary and Saskatoon respectively. Born based and currently living in Vancouver, Marcus James is well known for collaborating with other local talent, and ultimately producing music that will leave you captivated from the first few seconds of listening to it. 

Stream/Download ‘Warning Sign’ (Stripped) EP

We waited in anticipation to hear what RYYZN and Marcus James were releasing next, after watching their breathtaking acoustic take on their single ‘Night Light’ . The Warning Sign (Stripped) EP definitely lives up to the hype of its predecessor. The acoustic edition of Warning Sign features a combination of noteworthy quirks, like it’s honeyed alternative vocal range from duo RYYZN that has captured you from the beginning. Along with this, is the unforgettable instrumental compositions from Marcus James – leaves you wanting more.

 Marcus James shares the importance of the new version of the EP:

This Stripped EP is our way of coming full circle for the final chapter of the Warning Sign project and releasing all four songs in the acoustic form that they were first written and recorded. It was important to us from a songwriting standpoint to make sure these songs worked “stripped-down” before we turned them into the productions released on the original EP. I guess somewhere along the line we figured if these songs work in their original form, why not let people hear them in that way?
