I’d love to lavish countless loving “hearts” on Hearts Hearts, a left-field Viennese band on our radar whose cool, slinky vocals and gorgeously crafted art rock, electro-rock, and synthwave on their latest single come together like a riveting matrimony between Geographer and Wild Beasts. Hearts Hearts is releasing a new album next week, and they’ve revealed a surreal music video for its title track, Goods / Gods. Huw Stephens and John Kennedy have already started plugging the record on the radio, and Hearts Hearts has been featured on many an esteemed publication and blog, too. Now, they’ve announced a one-off London show at Thousand Island on May 22, too. Heart Hearts’ sophomore album Goods / Gods arrives April 20th. I, for one, cannot get enough of its  title track. Please enjoy the show for me, my friends across the great Atlantic pond. Listen to more of Hearts Hearts’ music on Soundcloud, here.

A mysterious new project named NAVA is turning heads and perking ears with their imaginative brand of electronic pop. They dish out a left of center form of icy dark, visceral raw music on RITUAL. Even the song’s music video seems steeped in mysticism. RITUAL’s pounding drums, and its sharp jabbing, caustic twisting repertoire of spine-tingling elements feels nothing short of spiritually ceremonial. Jungle and industrial are interwoven into the track’s electronica. The resulting fusion, alongside NAVA’s bewitching vocals, are like a blend of Kill J with Fever Ray. Though NAVA only has one Instagram post to date, you can keep up with the enigmatic newcomer(s), here.
