Premiere: Leon Else - What I Won't Do

UK's finest Leon Else has been steady rising the last few years and we love his Instagram feed! His brand new single What I Won't Do is magic and creates a rush from just listening to it. It's so damn direct and catchy, PLUS those 80's references in the drums and synths teamed with the urgency in his voice + falsetto. It's all too much and we love it! ENJOY!

Video Premiere: The Sound of Arrows - Beautiful Life

Brand new The Sound of Arrows! The Swedish duo return with the gorgeous and moving Beautiful Life, their first outing in five years. Stefan Storm and Oskar Gullstrand released their debut album Voyage in 2011 and have created stunning remixes along the way for artists such as Lady GaGa. This new single had us at the intro alone and truly up their game in a sharp and gleaming way. The first 37 seconds is like a bright summer morning just waiting for the day to take off, which it does when the strings start shimmering around the 38 second mark. Stefan's vocals are so beautiful and evoke such tender feelings. And they're so understated and effortless which pairs so well with the gleaming and dramatic strings. A symphony of emotions if you will. The lyrical motif sets the scene of a brooding night of longing and hoping and the visuals are equally as striking. Gorgeous scenery and locations plus awesome cinematography all make for one beautiful video. The lone figure in sportswear in the middle of it all makes it a bit raw and like an everyday situation, despite all the phenomenal things around him. Much like life itself, no? It all happens when we least expect it and we just have to embrace it. Top marks!

Premiere: Lana Del Rey feat. The Weeknd - Lust For Life

Lana Del Rey is gearing up for the release of her fifth studio album Lust For Life later this year. The title track just dropped and features The Weeknd - the songs they have done together are pretty awesome so the bar is high. Thankfully both come through and this is a really sweet listen. It sounds very LANA circa Born To Die era. Namely Without You. The verses on Lust For Life shakes us with its lowkey verses that explode every time in that stirring chorus. Love the shift in energy and how well the Del Rey anthem aspects blend with Weeknd that patented falsetto. Hopefully a big hit! Thoughts?

Premiere: Lady GaGa - The Cure

Lady GaGa headlined Coachella last night and premiered a brand new song! It's streaming everywhere already and it sounds ace. The Cure is a big step away from her Joanne country album and more towards her roots in electronic sounds with a hint of The Weeknd realness thrown in there, too. We like it a lot, and it fits her so much better, at least according to these ears listening at this very moment in time. C'mon The Cure! GaGa's voice is so supple and the production is super tight - a pure joy to listen to. Stream it below and click here for the live clip!

Premiere: Beth Ditto - Fire 

Beth Ditto's solo career is literally on Fire and we love it! After her glorious 2011 EP produced by Simian Mobile Disco we've been craving more, more, more. Her debut solo album Fake Sugar will be out on June 16th - this first taster harks more back to her Gossip band days than her electro EP. We don't mind one bit though. Fire has a slow and steady groove that makes us think of Johnny Cash a bit and Beth's iconic vocals really gets to shine. Imagine this one live in small and sweaty club setting - OMG. Enjoy below! Thoughts?
