Constantly changing your name has got to play havoc with your SEO. Just ask Say Lou Lou, we’d just got used to not calling them Saint Lou Lou and sticking with SLL when they become Say Lou Lou, although to be fair, their previous label, Kitsuné Music have done a fair job of scrubbing the old name from existence. When we say the Australian/Swedish girls live a month or so ago they seemed confused themselves as to what they were called. At that show they played a track which we though would be perfect single material. that song was Julian, their new single. Pop points for us!
Julian is even better on record, than it is live, when you can hear the nuances of the track. Which is a good thing as Julian is pretty subtle, it’s a gorgeous, warm, slice of DreamPop, bathed in layers in intricate synths and the girls comforting vocals. Even more exciting is that the single package will come equipped with reMixes from Martin Dubka, Monsieur Adi. We can’t wait for those.
Here’s the recent NightWaves single reMixed by Short Circuit. Wait. Sorry. Flashback. What I meant to say is here’s the recent Goldroom single reMixes by Touch Tone. I do love it when the old Binary crew get together for tracks, makes me feel nostalgic before I’ve even pressed play, and I can always trust that pressing play will live up to my expectations.
No fear here, Touch Tone crafts the prefect breezy vibe for the track. Slightly Tropical, the track flows like water, the dreamy vocals curling in and out of Touch Tone’s laid-back Disco like smoke. Built on a French-Disco-esque piano riff, the reMix takes it time to deliver soul shaking bass and a rolling beat over it’s relaxed five minute run. This is cruising music, a feel good tune that sweeps all your worries away.
OK, so first we have to address that Sweden based Australian twin sisters Saint Lou Lou aren’t Saint Lou Lou any more, now they’re just SLL. Is this a good move?, we doubt it (every-time I see it I immediately think SSL), but whatever, they still sound as sweet as ever. Perhaps more than ever as they team up with one of the most talented artists around right now, Goldroom.
Riding high on the worldwide success of his Fifteen single, featuring Chela on vox, Josh Legg brings a little summer sun into our chilly winter nights. The dreamy harmonies of Sain…SLL are a perfect match for that Goldroom flavour. Here Josh get’s a little more Poppy than usual, bringing his nautical vibe with a robust bassline and shimmering Island synths to a straight-up ElectroPop track, giving it a Tropical twist. The result is a truly blissful tune that kinda’ shines like when the sun’s ray catch the water. So brilliant it’s blinding.
