New Music – Crooked Colours, Bobmo, Mo Parker
Say hello to this week’s parade of lovelies from Perth, Paris and Newcastle
Perth-based trio Philip Slabber, Leon De Baughn and Liam Merrett-Park have been steadily building a rep for turning audiences on with full-bodied electro-indie. Tracks to date like “Moontan Nocturnal” and “Come Down” are full of dark thrills, interesting hooks and edgy, infectious synthlines.
Paris-based DJ and producer Hugues Rey has been lots of admiring glances thanks to slinky, bass-ful releases like “When I Look”. The former rapper was previously associated with the well-respected Institubes’ label and is now working on Marble Music wth Para One and Surkin.
The spinetingling, bare-bones, blues-tinged electro-soul on “Fold” from the Newcastle singer augers well for the long-run. With production help from Lulu James collaborator Domzilla, “Fold” is an alluring wash of old and new influences and makes you hanker to hear more.
