London by way of Yorkshire trio FLAWES are back with their first new material since they created a feverish buzz with their 2016 EPs, Ctrl and Unspkn. Forever, out now via Red Bull Records, is the first taste from the band’s forthcoming EP, due out this fall. Forever, which sees the trio teaming up with London producer Lostboy, is a velveteen electro soul and electronic pop swooner with rich swelling synths and buttery melting vocals. The single is about rushing into a relationship because you’re so infatuated with the other person that everything seems flawless and perfect, only to find that love has blinded you to the truth. Anyone who has been caught in the passion of love and obsession understands this scenario and the heartache it tends to lead us into, but when it comes to FLAWES, I’m pretty sure I’m not blinded when I say that I can’t find any fault in plush melting Forever. The single can be purchased from iTunes, here.

New UK artist Damien Ike gripped me instantaneously with his song Kingdom Come, which was co-written with Lostboy and JM∆C, as well as produced by the two artists, both previously eagerly featured on IHM. Kingdom Come is an alt pop meets synthpop ballad with a bold, commanding chorus. Damien’s deep and impassioned vocals, as well as Lostboy and JM∆C’s thrilling production, set the song afire. Kingdom Come is a heart swelling experience, steeped in magnificence and grandiosity.

Scandinavian songstress DíSA’s music is already entrancing and bewitching. New producer Lostboy succeeds at taking her bold single Cure into new electronic territory. It’s a booming, explosive, and magnificent edit with plenty of glitchy, choppy elements. Lostboy, who’s ghost written for many in the industry for a long time, makes a charged, resonating entrance with the remix.
