Returning for another week, Getintothis’ Lorna Dougherty provides your three new favourite bands.
This week we delve into the liminality space where music blurs between psychedelic, hip-hop, dream-pop and jazz with three tracks to add to your ‘chilled out sexy vibes‘ playlist.
To be fair, we’re slightly cheating here because our first artist isn’t really ‘unknown,’ but they definitely fall under the latter of the column, and as we’ve never mentioned him previously on Getintothis, his debut is a well deserved inclusion.
But for all of you who haven’t already listened to Cosmo Pyke, the Londoner is already on the path to stardom. You know, just casually starring in Frank Ocean‘s music video and his EP Just Cosmo was produced by Fraser T Smith, who’s worked with the likes of Adele, Stormzy and Craig David, and he’s only 18. His track Chronic Sunshine blends jazz and hip-hop and his voice; a gentle, velvety rich croon. Add it to your playlist, or make a new one just for this banger.
Next, we venture into dream pop-psych. Banes World, AKA Shane Blanchard from Long Beach. He is another to add to the ever-growing list of bedroom artists, following the likes of Mac Demarco. With vibrant airy, guitar riffs combined with muffled percussion and a whole load of reverb, You Say I’m in Love, is a colourful love song that makes you want to light all the candles and wear everything tie-dye.
Finally, we have Peter Collins, who has very few original songs, yet his covers on his youtube will make you fall in love with his voice. However, his urban soul track Love Like is the first single ahead of his first EP, a priori called Love And Mind, which boasts his talents beyond his voice, the production of the music paired with the layers of harmonies; Full of soulfulness, jazz, softness and talent.
