If you were to demand a short list from us detailing our favorite emerging bands and artists of the moment and who we believe will really make some waves in 2018, there’s no doubt that we’d include slenderbodies on that list. I’m pretty certain that IHM was one of the first blogs to share their music earlier this year, and we’re absolutely elated to see them picking up the buzz they deserve over the course of the past few months. The Los Angeles based indie band, now signed to Mind Of A Genius records (ZHU, Gallant, Klangstoff, THEY., and more) caught our attention with ‘anemone’. Immediately, their slinky and whimsical sound caught our fancy and reminded us of favorite bands like Alt-J, Foals, Glass Animals, Hundred Waters, and The Antlers. They’ve since released a mind bending remix of ZHU’s Hometown Girl as well as a new single named Lucid, which they now follow up with ‘amnesia’, a breathy chugging, breezy fluttering escapade that sits somewhere between label mate ZHU’s rich guttural house and Glass Animals’ peanut butter vibes. Shrewd shifty, murky prowling  ‘amnesia’ is a new taste from a much anticipated EP entitled Fabulist Extended, arriving January 11th. Keep a close ear on slenderbodies, folks. And make sure you check out their other songs on Soundcloud, here, if you haven’t yet. Just be prepared for some major infatuation.

London based trio RITUAL return with more of their sultry R&B and soul drenched electronic music on new track Amnesia, which features some guest rapping by Chester Watson. The vibing song is the final track on Ritual’s debut EP, The Fall, out this week and available on iTunes. Sparkling piano, gentle beats, emotive vocals, and a haunting atmosphere work together in intoxicating conjunction. You can preview the full The Fall EP on their Soundcloud, here, which includes three other superb tracks I’ve featured previously on IHM.
