I have plenty of faith in Berlin based poet, singer songwriter, and producer Sumera after the wanderer at heart whose heritage consists of Caribbean, Colombian, and Portuguese roots entrapped our hearts with darkly haunting Animal earlier this year. Yet, I’m not sure I was entirely prepared for how truly enthralling her latest single Faith turned out to be. It’s an inky pulsing, sensual heaving, and tense throbbing aria that blends the opaque allure of Sevdaliza with the cinematic grandeur of HÆLOS

‘s trip hop. The moody yet delicate, visceral yet elegant song now comes accompanied with a video which Sumera shot on her own. Faith is out now on Don Diablo’s HExagon imprint. Stream/download, here.

The last we heard from Elderbrook, the London based singer songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist had lent his talents to a spectacular collaboration with CamelPhat named Cola. He now returns with a slinky strutting new tune named Woman brimming with steamy heat and oozing sex appeal. It’s impossible not to swoon in woozy reverence to the buttery electro soul, snazzy curling R&B funk, and chic thrumming alt electronica found on this debonair piece. The song arrives as Elderbrook is preparing to round off the summer with his biggest body of original work to date, a 7 track EP named Talking, due for release on September 1st via Kobalt. Craven J produced Woman is the deluxe EP’s first single.

Emily Underhill, the singer songwriter and producer from London behind the striking project known as TUSKS, delivers cinematic stirring, panoramic sprawling music in the form of new single Toronto. An ethereal crescendo carried by regal pounding drums, lush strings, and Emily’s impassioned voice climaxes to cathartic effect. Toronto’s acoustic opulence and atmospheric splendor blends the earnest intimacy of Daughter and the graceful beauty of London Grammar with the voluminous scope of Sigur Rós. TUSKS is preparing to release a debut album on One Little Indian later this year. Judging by what we’ve heard so far from TUSKS, it’s probably going to be a magnificently moving record.

Los Angeles’ Magic Giant unleashed a splendorous anthem late last year, one I’m still utterly head over heels for. Set On Fire is a breathtaking beauty, an epic sweeping saga made up of dazzling folktronica and mellifluous alt pop. It’s that gorgeous tune that rising Austin based producer CLOUDCHORD has remixed for his latest track. CLOUDCHORD is proving himself responsible for some of my favorite remixes this year, and he gives Set On Fire a chill tropical, future sleek makeover more than perfect for the impending summer weekend. It’s a ravishing remix that amplifies my immense love for the original. CLOUDCHORD will be releasing original music soon, and his Magic Giant remix sets my own heart afire in anticipation for what’s to come.

Swedish duo Tundran sling some slick synths and twinkling beats on Still Afraid, a glowing indie dance ballad for which they’ve also unleashed a lyric video, which you can stream below. The softly snapping, airily gliding confection is a lithe, irresistible earworm, its synthpop veneer and electro charm evoking both Cut Copy and St. Lucia. Still Afraid is taken from Tundran’s double single Still Afraid / Last Drive, out now on PRMD Music, here

I can’t believe just a couple weeks ago I was telling people there needs to be some remixes turned in for newcomer Phoebe Ryan’s fabulous debut Mine. Since then, the remixes have been flying in like mad. Some are fantastic, some are mediocre. Count Los Angeles producer DOCO’s remix part of the first camp. Frenetically glitchy pulses and playful bounces are blended with acoustic, melodic guitars to create an interesting blend of future trap and glittery electronic pop.
