New project FRND comes from a platinum selling producer out of Los Angeles who recently signed to Crooked Paintings to release his very own EP. Though he’s chosen to stay cloaked for the moment, it’s reported that we’ll find out who this mysterious producer is very soon. In the meantime, he debuts his new project with a song named Friend which tells a much familiar story about cutting out the toxic people in your life. The gently springing, coolly breezy future pop anthem boasts some subtle accents and finely nuanced elements, serving to entice and entrance in a light effervescent fashion. If Louis The Child went all saccharine and weightless, delicate and dreamy on us, it would probably sound something like Friend. I eagerly await the unmasking of the artist behind this exciting new project.

London trio Arctic Lake never fail to captivate me with their glacial alt pop. Friend is yet another slice of melancholic serenity, a crisp and cool tapestry of ambient electronic beauty. Its haunting arrangement and Emma Foster’s exquisite voice ache softly and simmer somberly. Despite its tenderness, Friend is an emotive force and a sensational taste from the trio’s forthcoming EP, due out later this year. As before, Arctic Lake’s gentle elegance reminds me of both WET and London Grammar. Friend can be purchased now from iTunes.

Quick remix roundup of the day

January 17, 2013

Here’s a choice few remixes I stumbled upon today that are pretty sweet. I’ll keep the narration to a minimum. Here goes…

First, a remix of Charli XCX’s fast buzzing Gold Panda sampling track You:

The original track is the first on the following, then the remix by Teen Daze. Both are excellent.

I like Van She. I like Boys Noize. Put them together. Whaddaya got? Electro house throw down!
