A Horse with A Horn – Better: Unapologetically Fierce Electro Pop

Up and coming solo experimental Electro Pop artist A Horse with A Horn (AKA Derek Wanker) has recently made their debut with the single “Better”. I don’t make the promise of “you’ll have never heard anything like this” all too often, but in this instance, I would put money on it.

It’s instantly perceptible that A Horse with A Horn has taken inspiration from some of the most iconic, unapologetically abrasive artists such as Peaches and Ladytron when cooking up his sound which resonates with plenty of distinction. After all, sexuality shouldn’t be repressed in any capacity and that definitely includes the music industry. We’ve heard enough tracks about Becky splitting up with her boyfriend by now. So, to sample something different, and infectiously salacious from a fierce Queer artist, hit play on Better and hope to hear a lot more from A Horse with a Horn in the Future.

Danni Baylor – SOLID: Infectiously Vibrant Reggae Electro Pop

As soon as you hit play on Danni Baylor’s latest single “SOLID” it’s instantly perceptibly that she’s a Pop artist with an infectiously magnetic personality.

While it isn’t all too often you can say that about Pop artists, Danni Baylor’s approach with SOLID hits you with a vibrant aural glow, the upbeat mix is much more than your average dancefloor filler. Instead the sun-soaked power ballad runs through with sticky-sweet romantic to the sound of Reggae Electro Pop.

The radio-ready beat serves as the perfect rhythmic platform for the soulfully fresh US based artist to lay down her piercingly pitch-perfect vocals upon. Paired with the emotive lyrics, SOLID resonates as one of the purest hits of euphoria you can tune into.

Bastiko – Running Around in Circles: An Enigmatic Offering of German Electro Pop

On January 31st, 2019, up and coming Eletronica artist Bastiko released his latest mix “Running Around in Circles” and proved that when it comes to Electronic Pop, German artists seem to have the rest of the world beat. Even if you’re as ignorantly uni-lingual as I, you will still appreciate the feel behind Running Around in Circles which uses English and German lyrics to give the sound a truly European feel.

As the melody of the chorus hits the electronic soundscape it’s all but impossible not to get caught up in the momentum of the track which plays around with plenty of experimental effects, especially on the vocals. Yet despite the Running Around in Circles being a mechanically-engineered track there’s plenty of organic expression which will allow you to set Bastiko apart from the rest.

Kiey – Piccadilly: Resoundingly Raw Electro Pop

There are very few up and coming Pop artists who have the ability to create tracks which will hit you with the same weight as you’ll feel from Kiey’s melancholically-mused hits. For his latest single “Piccadilly” Kiey created a heartfelt and resoundingly raw soundscape with lyricism which almost certainly contains a piece of his soul paired with a steady Electro Pop beat.

There’s no getting around the fact that parts of the track were awfully reminiscent of Britney Spears’ One More Time. Regardless, there’s still a lot to be said about how prodigal the rest of the Pop arrangement is. The depth brought by the orchestral strings takes Piccadilly to the next level. Any fans of Empathy Test, New Order, the Knife and M83 are sure to appreciate what Kiey has created.

Breaking Dublin Electro Pop Fí Drops Her Second Introspectively Sobering Hit “Feel Better”

If you’ve had a particularly heavy festive season, then prepare to be sobered by Dublin-based Electro-Pop artist Fí’s latest single “Feel Better”. Ironically, the Pop hit which explores the bitter-sweet repercussions from enjoying the club life makes for the perfect club hit – which may be enough to give you an existential crisis on the dancefloor. Yet, it isn’t all too often you’ll find an Electro Pop perennial earworm with such a deep introspective.

Any fans of artists such as Dua Lip, Lorde, Halsey, and Banks are sure to appreciate what the Breaking artist has cooked up with her infectiously euphoric 2018 release which doesn’t just skirt around issues of superficiality. With Fí’s undeniable vocal strength combined with the pristine production of Feel Better, it’s only a matter of time before her music takes a well-deserved trip to the top of the UK charts.

1323 – Retro Baby: Hypnotically Retro Electro Pop

1323’s latest single “Retro Baby” may have plenty of elements from the time of Synth Pop’s inception to lace the sound with accessibility, yet as the single progresses it’s clear that she’s reinvented the soundscape with one of the most distinctive flourishes yet. The fragility in the vocals is matched with moments of arrestive power making 1323’s vocals as powerful as you’d expect from the likes of Warpaint, Angel Olsen, and London Gramma.

It’s a rare feat for the vocals to a synth track to gel as intrinsically as they did with the beat in Retro Baby; the ultimate effect is one of aurally alchemic catharsis. If the fuzzy synths weren’t enough of a nostalgia hit for you, the distorted electric guitar will take you right back with the fierce archaically 80’s licks which bring in the outro.

Elijah Blond Makes His Debut with a Moody Urban-Laced Electro Pop Hit – “Whispers”

Up and coming artist Elijah Blond certainly didn’t struggle when it came to finding admiration for his debut single “Whispers”. In the short time since the single’s released, thousands of fans have already been enamoured by his striking approach to a chilled slow jam. The tempo may be slow, yet the track retains plenty of momentum from the atmospherics of each heavily reverberated note which sets a dark and moody tonality.

In terms of genre, Whispers defies practically every single one, yet incorporates elements of Indie, Electronica, Pop, and Trap to create a pioneeringly rich sound which is universally appealing. To see Elijah Blond ascending the charts in 2019 wouldn’t come of a surprise when considering the prodigal nature of his sound mixed by his emotively raw, unquivering vocal strength.

LTTLE KNG’s Electro-Pop-Soul Mash-Up Single “What It Is”

There aren’t many artists who can unite fans of Electro Pop, Soul and Hip Hop, yet LTTLE KNG certainly isn’t your average artist. His instantly accessible latest single “What It Is” combines elements from a smorgasbord of genres to create a downtempo romantically tinged soundscape which is all too easy to slip into. Whilst the production is smooth, the melody was clear cut, and the vocal dynamics got enough space to breathe and add layers of harmony to the single What It Is still seemed to be lacking in passion. There was no sense of clear artistic expression within the single even with the fusion of the different genres within the track it still felt quite archetypal. There’s no disputing that LTTLE KNG has talent and artistic vision, yet, I’d really love to hear him stamp down his own individualistic style instead of borrowing from a melting pot of genres.
