New Music – Chance the Rapper, Sinead Harnett, The Preatures
New arrivals on the OTR radar from Chicago, London and Sydney
Chicago boyo working up a fantastic head of steam on his new “Acid Rap” mixtape with appearances from Ab-Soul, Action Bronson Childish Gambino and tons more. About to tour with Kendrick Lamar and decide which major label cheque to cash. As tipped by OTR reader Conor McDevitt.
The London-based Irish-Thai singer is very much in demand this weather, appearing on bona-fide box-office tracks by Rudimental and Disclosure. Her own debut single “Got Me” is also worth your time and attention, a glorious punch of modern pop-house produced by Eats Everything and Lukas.
“Is This How You Feel?” will have you adding the Sydney-based band to your hype list. It’s old-fashioned, swaggering, rock and funk-noir with just the right hints of soul and blues grooves, from a band with considerable playing smarts and a dynamic frontwoman in Isabella Manfredi.
