LADYTRON’S HELEN MARNIE RELEASES NEW ALBUM ON JUNE 2ND VIA DISCO PINATA
         

About

Today, Marnie continues to develop her very own take on a modern pop sound through the release of “Lost Maps” taken from her album Strange Words and Weird Wars, out on 2nd June 2017 via Disco Piñata. TheLadytron frontwoman Helen Marnie, aka Marnie, releases the track “Lost Maps” alongside an emotionally charged video via Playboy HERE.

Comprised of ten pulsating tracks, Strange Words And Weird Wars showcases the most impressive elements of Marnie’s incarnation as a solo artist along with those that made her band, Ladytron, one of the most respected pioneers in electronic music; soul crushing synths are wonderfully accented by hook-laden choruses as Marnie boldly explores up-tempo electro dream-pop.The album is on 
iTunes pre-order, and you will instantly receive “Lost Maps”, "Alphabet Block” now and “Electric Youth” on 5.12.

The ability to effortlessly play with genres becomes more and more apparent as you work your way through what is such a sonically impressive record. Tracks such as album opener, the unashamedly melodic “Alphabet Block”, nods to contemporary electro-pop artists. While “Electric Youth” channels 80’s mall pop, think Pat Benatar via M83, a glorious guilty pleasure and one of the stand-out tracks on the album, introspection comes in the form of the shoegaze-inspired“A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night”, giving the air of an unreleased b-side from a cult vampire movie. And while the new single “Lost Maps” should be heard on dancefloors around the world, 
“Summer Boys”echos the hazy days of summer, dreaming big whilst reading stolenMills & Boons books.

Having moved back to Glasgow in September 2012 after many years living in London, Marnie continued to write music following the success of her solo project and subsequent album release in 2013. Influenced by life, love, loss, politics and all things 80’s pop, Marnie has created an album that has an intelligence and a depth behind what, on the surface, is a melodic contemporary pop record.

COLD WAR KIDS DEBUT VIDEO FOR NEW TRACK "RESTLESS" TODAY

BAND TO PERFORM "LOVE IS MYSTICAL" ON ABC'S 
JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! ON APRIL 5th

NEW ALBUM, LA DIVINE OUT APRIL 7TH ON CAPITOL RECORDS

Cold War Kids premiere the video for their new track "Restless" today on Vevo- the clip was shot in LA and directed by Made By Shelly, watch it HERE.  
 
"LA people are typecast into two roles," says Cold War Kids front man Nathan Willett about the bands inspiration for the track and video.  "The hungry single artist chasing their dreams or the happy couple that is compromised and settled. You're either edgy, moody, inspired or safe, soft and ineffectual. This is troubling to me. Where are the stories where love actually sets us free? What would it look like to live that way... to have the best of both worlds?" 
 
LA Divine Cold War Kids' sixth album and first for Capitol Records out April 7th  -pays tribute to Los Angeles in all its strange glory, embodying the Long Beach-bred band's endless fascination with their adopted hometown.  Produced by their repeat collaborator Lars Stalfors (Health, Local Natives), the album opens with lead single"Love is Mystical," which was praised by NME for taking the band's "rousing and soulful anthemics to new heights." The single held the No. 1 spot for Most Increased Plays at AAA radio for two consecutive weeks and hit the Top 5 of the Alt 18 Countdown and Top 10 at Alternative and Top 5 at AAA radio.  The song has more than 5.3 million Spotify streams worldwide and jumped into both Spotify's U.S. and Global Viral charts.  Cold War Kids will perform "Love Is Mystical" on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 5th, airing at 11:35|10:35 c on ABC.
 
Cold War Kids will celebrate the release of LA Divine with a Pop Up event in Los Angeles (April 6th), an iHeart Radio Album Release Party featuring a 60-minute live performance and Q&A that will stream and broadcast live across iHeart Media's Alternative Radio Stations (April 7th), performances and signings at Fingerprints Music in Long Beach, CA (April 8th) and an in store performance at Rough Trade in Brooklyn, NY (April 10th). All details on the Rough Trade event can be found here. Those whopre-order the album will receive instant downloads of "Love Is Mystical," "Can We Hang On?" and "So Tied Up" Ft. Bishop Briggs which TIME calls "enticing...a fast-paced toe-tapper with a stadium-sized arrangement... as far as angsty, passionate anthems to conflicted love affairs go, this one ticks all the right boxes."
 
The band just wrapped a sold out North American headline tour and will also joinYoung The Giant on the "Home of the Strange Tour," beginning August 2nd in Louisville, KY. The run will include a performance at Central Park SummerStage and continue on through the end of September. Full itinerary and tickets for all shows are available at coldwarkids.com. Coming on the heels of 2014's Hold My Home - which featured the chart-topping, Gold-certified single "First" - LA Divine is Cold War Kids' most expansive and ambitious effort so far.  Formed in 2004 in Fullerton, CA, Cold War Kids are Nathan WillettMatt MaustJoe PlummerMatthew Schwartz, andDavid Quon.

Following a string of vivacious and critically lauded performances on tour with MØ, Tei Shi is releasing her eagerly anticipated full length Crawl Space today. An impressive and accomplished debut, Crawl Space, has one of the most engaging and dynamic releases of the year so far.

In case you missed the "How Far" video, Dazed Digital noted that Tei Shi "channels the Coen Brothers," going on to say "The greatest gift of Tei Shi might be her natural ability to transmute personal stories into sticky pop hooks."

Acclaim for Crawl Space:

"Tei Shi may have been a long time coming, but "Keep Running" feels like the debut of an artist properly establishing her musical identity with plenty of potential for success." V Magazine

"Swooning synth-pop and the latter's psychedelic soul" Stereogum

"Prepare your roommates for the impromptu karaoke sessions you'll be having to this song all year long." Cosmopolitan, 25 Albums to Obsess Over in 2017

"Shimmering vocals, pulsing basslines, sultry synths and a vulnerable-yet-cool-girl attitude"  
PAPER

"'Crawl Space' draws the focus in on Tei Shi's compelling and sultry vocals like never before" Clash Magazine

"Tei Shi's acrobatic vocals shine once again on "How Far,"... The track - which pairs gut-wrenching lyrics like "If it pleases you to see me struggle/ I will" with dreamy guitars and buzzing production - explores the thin line between love and destruction. And it'll stick with you."  
FADER

""Keep Running," a silky slip of R&B pop, a little Jesse Ware, a little Solange. The video, directed by Agostina Gálvez, which you can watch below, features the Colombian-born singer back to brunette, in various satiny numbers, curving her body with the sensual ease with which she delivers her melodies." 
 Noisey

"Fluttering above light, synth-driven production, the singer's sunny vocals shine, asserting herself as both a prolific producer and acrobatic vocalist." Out Magazine, Women In Power-Pop: 50 Musicians Taking Over

AMBER COFFMAN SHARES NEW SINGLE “NO COFFEE” FROM HER FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM CITY OF NO REPLY

AMBER COFFMAN SHARES NEW SINGLE “NO COFFEE” 
FROM HER FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM CITY OF NO REPLY
Singer/songwriter Amber Coffman answers the age-old question is love stronger than that morning jolt of caffeine with the release of her new single “No Coffee” from her upcoming debut album City Of No Reply due out on Columbia Records this June. The song is a bright lament and intricately layered ode of real longing. There’s a bop to her delivery that makes “No Coffee” another example of the singer’s subtle emotive power and the perfect counter to “All To Myself,” which drew praise last fall.

Former guitarist/singer for ground-breaking indie band the Dirty Projectors, Amber wrote and recorded her solo album in Los Angeles. She’s quietly become one of the most intriguing and sought-after vocalists, delivering notable performances with Bjork and David Byrne on separate Dirty Projectors collaborations (Mount Wittenberg Orca and “Knotty Pine,” respectively). A host of cutting-edge artists from the EDM, hip-hop, and indie worlds have also enlisted Coffman’s talents for their own projects. Artists she has collaborated with include Major Lazer, Rusko, J.Cole, Snoop Dogg, Velvet Underground impresario John Cale, and Frank Ocean on his recent album Blonde.

Amber’s formidable vocal presence makes “No Coffee” another flawless effort from the emerging solo artist.
