New Music – Holy Child, Vaults, Ben Khan
New arrivals on the OTR radar from Los Angeles and a brace from London
Los Angeles boy/girl duo whose electropop gem “Happy With Me” is one of the giddy delights of the season. While that tune will be getting a lot of attention from industry and early adaptors, you should also check out “Diamonds On the Rebound” and “Best Friends” from Liz Nistico and Louie Diller.
New London-based group with a great calling card in the atmospheric, impressive, enchanting “Cry No More”. There are shades of London Grammar and Florence & The Machine in the song’s dramatic span so you can understand why the record label folks are chomping at the bit here.
Beautiful future-soul with some fascinating tweaks and twirls in the soundbed is what’s on offer on “Eden” from the London singer-songwriter. Like previous track “Drive (Part 1)”, it will remind you of Jai Paul’s off-kilter blend, but Khan is very much his own man.
