Another Friday means a whole host of new music released for your listening pleasure! This week, we check out the latest new tracks from Marie Dahlstrom, Declan Mckenna, Fat Freddy's Drop and Cassia!
Marie Dahlstrom – Fall Down
Danish solo artist Marie Dahlstrom, established London producer Dan Diggas, and Canadian rapper Aligo have joined creative forces in the release of their new single ‘Fall Down’! The first taster of the 4-track EP titled ‘4inARow’ is an ode to arguments that can be common at times, but left untreated could ruin a relationship. The EP drops on 15th January via Dahlstrom’s own JFH Records, be sure to grab a copy and catch her perform it live at London’s Camden Assembly next March!
Declan Mckenna – Hallucinate
Following from his tender rendition of Dua Lipa’s megapop anthem ‘Hallucinate’ on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, Declan Mckenna has released the stripped back cover as a single and we are absolutely loving it. Armed with nothing but an acoustic guitar, Mckenna’s signature spin transforms a disco stomper into something altogether different. Stay tuned for more epic tunes from this rising star and pick up your tickets for his special show at Nottingham’s Rock City next April.
Fat Freddy’s Drop – Lock In
Legendary New Zealand dub collective Fat Freddy’s Drop have saved 2020 with the release of their 8-track record ‘LOCK-IN’! Capturing the sonic movement of freedom and hope for a generation, the album was recorded in a studio session during the height of the pandemic which rings true in tracks like ‘Soldier’ and ‘Hope’. Full of freewheeling jams and catchy hooks, be sure to grab tickets for their UK tour next July.
Cassia – Hurt
Yet another incredible cover has dropped today, this time from Bristolian 4-piece Cassia with their beautiful version of Arlo Parks ‘Hurt’! Injecting the track with a dash of jazz, flickering synths and a belting bass line, you cant help but naturally want to get up and start doing the two step. It’s great to see so many musicians taking inspiration from their peers during these trying times and helping other creatives promote their art through re-invention and interpretation.
