Perhaps it’s my fondness for bubbly effervescent music, or perhaps its my past history raving and listening to happy hardcore, but I find I can never resist the tart effervescence of producers affiliated with PC Music, like GFOTY. The producer has shared a sharp jolting, laser cut synthscape named Tongue, and it sends tingly static electricity pulsing through our bodies. She’s also unveiled a music video for both Poison and Tongue, which you can watch below, for a delightfully raucous and wonderfully stringent experience. Both tracks can be found on a new mixtape called GFOTYBUCKS out this Friday on PC Music.

In case you’ve been sleeping on GEMS’ Every Full Moon series, let me catch you up on what’s going on. The Washington, D.C. indie duo have been releasing a new enthralling tune every month when the moon waxes luminously full and perfectly rotund. It’s been nearly half a year since GEMS started this series, and each song that’s arrived has been a bewitching ‘gem’ indeed. Poison is the latest in their stellar sequence of tunes. If this is what poison actually tastes like, sign me up for some toxins, quick! Poison’s smoky simmering, crisp springing alt pop is reminiscent of EX COPS, Stars, and Metric. There’s an ominous sense of doom to be found in the song despite its euphonious appeal. Dark yet mellifluous, cataclysmic yet dulcet… Poison is a lethal concoction that has slayed my heart. You can find GEMS prior songs on Soundcloud, here.

My encounter with this exquisite song comes rather late, but it would be a great disservice not to share such a beautiful aria just the same. Joy Oladokun is a soul musician from Los Angeles, and her voice is immaculate, a pure and divine beacon of light on Poison. Grace abounds on this haunting heartrender. Poison cuts to the bone with its emotionally charged, honest and candid approach. The heartbroken song comes from Joy Oladokun’s debut album Carry, which I’m more than convinced I need to spend a cozy night at home listening to, perhaps with a solitary candle lit and some tissues ready at hand. Carry can be found on iTunes.

Lost Boy provides a shimmering tropical pop hit ‘Poison’. I’m already anticipating the remixes that will come in once this hits the radio. It’s Lost Boy’s first single and I don’t have much information on the talented vocalist and/or producer, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from Lost Boy.

[PREMIERE]: luhx. – poison

There’s a new synth-soul band from Boston, Massachusetts who’s about to leave you in shambles with their haunting new song, Poison. Inspired by the likes of Jack Garratt, Allen Stone, and Oh Wonder, luhx. delivers silken resplendence and fragile delicacy on the beautiful gem. Poison is far to marvelously moving a piece to be venomous, except perhaps to the heart itself, its pointed darts dripping in tender, lovelorn anguish. Emotively captivating vocals and a soft, gentle groove evoke Brooklyn’s WET alongside a softly glowing Shura warmth, while some of Kevin Garrett’s tingles inducing soulfulness commingles with a crisp pop appeal reminiscent of Sara Bareilles’ heart wrenching piano ballads of yore. Poison is a stunning song, a treasure whose glimmering polish lures us blissfully into its bittersweet entanglement. It’s also a reverberating statement from a very exciting new Boston act, a must watch band as the year continues to slowly unfurl.

Lash wanted to make something more melodic to close out the summer, so the Domincan Republic based duo decided to create a gorgeous remix of Rita Ora’s Poison. This one’s a sweet, enticing poison, full of deep house and future house jubilation and inspiring radiance. It’s an anthem to transport those summer vibes straight into the rest of the year. Rita Ora’s voice is pure gold on the track, making me extra regretful that I just missed catching her live at the Independent in San Francisco a couple weeks back. Download for free, here.

For an epic dose of synthpop music, we turn to Manchester’s Girl Friend. They bring us a sexy new dance funk treat named Poison. Its sizzling heat and venomous gleam are indeed toxic in a seductive fashion, like a glistening, scintillating blend of Chromeo, Friendly Fires, and Passion Pit. Poison is an opulent ode to lust, passion, danger, and desire. The red hot jam is the quartet’s first since their excellent Arrive Along Leave Alone EP.

I’ve been in love with British band Vaults for a year now, and they never cease to amaze me with each and every new release. Solemn yet passionate comes Poison, a soul inflected and bewitching new song. Raspy vocals skate gorgeously over the enthralling, other worldly electronic production, which marches slow and fastidious. Vaults has reminded me of Bat For Lashes, Florence and the Machine, and MS MR in the past, but this time, I’m most certainly picturing a lot more Kate Bush and Niki and the Dove, but more weighty and dark. On December 1, Vaults will release their Vulture EP.

Here’s one that I’ve been excited to share with you since I first heard it last week. New Chicago singer-songwriter and producer ELIJAH bursts on to the scene with Poison, a magnificent, gripping electropop debut single full of dark, sultry electronic texture and passionate vocals. The melodramatic, infectious song calls to mind many other acts I love, including The Neighbourhood, Sir Sly, and SOHN, while ELIJAH’s moving vocals are reminiscent of Mikky Ekko, particularly when Mikky collaborated with producers like Clams Casino. Poison is a stunning debut, and I can’t wait to hear more.
