Gibbz - Oh My God

A little less than a month since releasing his previous single, "Bright Lights", Brooklyn-based electro-pop virtuoso Mike Gibney, aka Gibbz now returns with his sleek new single along with its accompanying lyric video for "Oh My God", which features a trumpet solo courtesy of Eric Benny Bloom of Lettuce and also serves as the second single and the title track off his forthcoming EP, due out on December 16th.

Speaking on the track, Gibbz said:

"'Oh My God' was inspired by a conversation about sexual vocalizations. I was curious why it seemed so common and natural for people to mention a deity while in the middle of having sex. 'Oh My God' the first line of the 'act of contrition,' which is a Christian prayer expressing sorrow for sin. I was thoroughly entertained by the visual my mind created of a new couple continuously having sex and just, sort of, 'covering the bases' in the eyes of God. Making sure whomever they prey to is aware that they know that they’re doing a dirty thing, but they have no intention of stopping. Also, I love a good reason to write a sexual song with a tempo perfectly matched for stamina."

Check out the lyric video for "Oh My God" below.

STORME - Soldier

Introducing STORME, a Swedish singer/songwriter who is currently based in London where for the past few years has been honing her craft. Growing up in her native Sweden, STROME drew inspiration from the breathtaking landscapes and from her thoughts and feelings of the world around her. As her sound developed, so did her musical palette, with further influence coming from a new found love of more electronic music and artists such as Florence and the Machine, Bjork and Bon Iver. Today, STORME has unveiled her debut single entitled "Soldier", produced by legendary UK drummer Adam Betts (Goldie, Squarepusher, Three Trapped Tigers), the track showcases the use of sublime electronic production, a big chorus and catchy melodies, which have an heir of familiarity but at the same time still sound fresh and unique.

Listen to "Soldier" below and stay tuned from a lot more new music from STORME in 2017.

Premiere via Clash.

What's In Our Inbox? #78

With so many emails arriving in our inbox on a daily basis it's sometimes difficult to keep track of all the great new music that is being sent to us. As much as we would love to give each artist/song their own individual feature, we simply do not have the time to do so. So in order to make things a little easier on ourselves and to help get more music out there to YOU, we've decided to start doing a new feature that we're calling What's In Our Inbox?, which we'll try to share at least once a week. Please listen to each song and if you like what you hear then be sure to give the artist(s) a thumbs up and/or a follow on Facebook/Twitter.

XYLØ - Get Closer

Following on from last month's release of their stellar collaboration with The Chainsmokers on "Setting Fires" as well as their most recent single, "Dead End Love", Los Angeles-based duo XYLØ, comprised of siblings Chase and Paige Duddy, now return with their new single and video for "Get Closer", a song about becoming distant with someone you were once inseparable with.

Speaking on the track and video, Paige tells The Fader:

"To be young in 2016 comes with many distractions. We live in a chaotic, clickbait, top ten list-instant gratification generation. Sometimes we need to look up from the small screens and take a look at ourself, and the people who are closest to us. In the video our director, Gianennio, captured this mood all through the lighting. The neon lights, strobes, lazers, fog, all represent those distractions in a failing relationship. Caroline (who plays my girlfriend) tied this all together through her emotional performance,unique style and grace."

"Get Closer" is available now on iTunes.
