New Music – Ghost Loft, Sza, Bubbles
New acts on the OTR radar from Los Angeles, St Louis and New York
The Los Angeles pop revolution continues. Producer Danny Choi’s cuts to date ike “Seconds” and “So High” are full of broody, deluxe, lush sounds from that indie-pop-r’n’b Venn diagram. The superb melodies embedded in the slo-mo twists and turns bodes well for the future.
New EP “S” is where the St Louis singer makes her case for greatness with some magentic hooks, sultry r’n’b shimmies and lines about bacon and pixie dust. Dig out last year’s “See Sza Run” EP for more signs of what’s to come from her.
New York-based duo Alain Levitt and Jason P. Grisell’s new single “Waldorf” is what has them currently on the OTR radar. One for fans of swell, dark, romantic synth-pop with a little dab of New Order in the machine.
