I’m incredibly grateful to come across Esther Joy, an emerging London-based singer songwriter and producer whose dark, heady left-field electro-pop is acerbic and sharp, jolting and thrilling. That’s right, this is goth tinged, electro-punk inflected electronic deliciousness, exactly the sort of turbulent, menacing, and stormy music that we love. Day 4 (Landing) is her new track from forthcoming The Acid Caves Vol 1 EP, due out April 27th. For another taste of that EP, stream Day 1 (Silipur Leaves Home) below and let it totally transfix you with its icy opaque electronica, much like a mesmeric fusion of all that we love from Alice Glass, Kill J, Zola Jesus, and the likes. Those in the UK can catch a surely electrifying Esther Joy performance at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton this May.

Grammy award winning British composer and producer Tourist has been following up on his debut album U in fine form, with a terrific roster of guest talent in tow, too. This Friday, October 27th, Tourist will be releasing his new EP, Wash. On it will be this bright eyed and wondrous, dreamy twinkling electronic gem, Sleepwalking, featuring vocals by Swim Mountain and Esther Joy. I’ve never suffered from the affliction of sleepwalking, but if it’s anything like this sanguinely luminous, intricately ornate balance of organic instrumentals and lavish sparkling electronica, I can only conclude that I’ve been missing out on something quite special. Sleepwalking builds and crescendos, layer upon layer, towards polyphonic nirvana. There’s no resisting the song’s music video and its adorably relatable character in an orange suit, too.
