A Deli Premiere: Plastic Waves share single “Drift” + play Elsewhere on 8/3

After making the move to Brooklyn, former Deli New England-featured artist of the month Plastic Waves premieres brand new single “Drift” here today. Relying purely on electronic instruments, the track features verses supported by modulating synths and slap-back percussion. While an initial impression might elicit comparisons to the 80's and 90's sound of bands like Depeche Mode, OMD or even Gary Numan, a more soulful and emotional quality emerges within the bridge and chorus. “I don't want to fight it, but don't get excited if you feel it too” leads into a lush cascade of melding voices and synths. The chorus takes it one step further with buzzing, elevating melody lines between the vocal refrain “can't seem to find another - cause I won't take any others - you pull me right back into it - and I don't know how you do it.” Don't miss Plastic Waves' live performance at Elsewhere Zone One in Brooklyn this Friday, 8/3. - Dave Cromwell





Inho "Lightning Days"

Inho creates music that is being called “Mystic Folk”, but that might describe how otherworldly and beautiful his music actually is. On his debut album, Lightning Days, he blends elements of folk, chamber pop, and ambient music to create something between Dead Can Dance and Phosphorescent.

Below is the video for the album’s lead single, “Laruga Rain”.

 





New Track: "Grow into a Ghost" - Swearin'

Swearin’ is back, with their forthcoming album, Fall Into The Sun, scheduled for release on October 5 via Merge. Its first single, “Grow into a Ghost,” gradually opens amid the buzz of power chords. While the smattering thump of backend, a cleaner guitar riff forges a path for Allison Crutchfield to step forward, leaving remnants of the past behind. A composed confidence is apparent as the rough edges push on the perimeter, giving way to a sense of clarity. You can catch Swearin’ at the First Unitarian Church on Wednesday, October 10, with Empath, who will be joining them on a week-long run.





Okay Kaya shares "Habitual Love" video, tours with Amen Dunes

Having just released her long-awaited debut album Both, Okay Kaya shows no sign of slowing down for the rest of the summer. The Norwegian, NYC based singer-songwriter has shared the music video for "Habitual Love", a slow jam which follows the album's theme of dual identity, trauma, depression, and love as a physical embodiment. Kaya took to the Rubber House retreat near New Paltz to film the video, in which she shows off her talent as a dancer and hides a secret love affair with a faceless, featureless mannequin from herself. The artistic clip matches the song's dark vibes, which Kaya will present live on her upcoming tour. Beginning in mid-August, Kaya will take to the Northwest and make her way back east; then in October, she'll fly overseas to play a few European shows before returning to Brooklyn for a homecoming show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. - Will Sisskind





Cape Francis, Hannah Sumner and Bonomo play The Revolution, #Vol. 29 on 07.28

National Sawdust’s monthly premiere of emerging local artists called The Revolution is set for its 29th iteration on Saturday, July 28 with a variety of new bands. The three local acts juxtapose each other in genre and songwriting, yet their sounds are engaging in their own distinctive way. Bonomo’s laid-back, silky jazz compositions are wonderfully playful and find grooves that slither around without becoming monotonous, and his somewhat subtle music contrasts his two contemporaries. Cape Francis brings subdued indie folk that transforms murmuring guitars into a roar of organic energy, whereas Hannah Sumner’s ethereal walls of synth pop wrestle with her restrained yet impassioned voice in a combination of natural and synthetic energies. These artists offer wildly different appeals and styles, doubling down on The Revolution’s commitment to diversity in sonic palettes. The show begins at 10 p.m. and you can listen to The Deli’s playlist featuring these acts below. -Tucker Pennington
