// Part 5
David Rhodes is a moody and mysterious 24-year-old from Hitchin in Hertfordshire. Going only by his surname, Rhodes, we fell in love with his music during 2014, thanks to his moody songwriting persona.
His “Morning” EP was well received last year, and we are expecting that he has an album up his sleeve for 2015.
Initially believed to be some sort of group or duo, we were slightly surprised to find out that Island Fox is simply the solo work of Jess Bartlett alongside some choice producers. Compared to the likes of Corbin, FKA Twigs, and SOHN, you will find yourself sucked in to this project from the first listen.
We are craving for more of her in 2015.
A talented Australian duo has been taking music blogs by storm with their self-titled debut EP release “Vallis Alps”. If you’re wondering why then all will be revealed as soon as your clap your ears over the first track from the EP – “Young”. Drawing on elements from the likes of The xx and Flume, and with some thought provoking lyricism to boot, it’s quite easy to see why they are impressing anyone they come into contact with.
Yung Bae represents the ever increasing shift of the bedroom production scene to nu-disco revival, and we have been incredibly impressed with his output thus far. Whether it’s future funk as he calls it, or drunk funk as we like to call it – it’s damn good.
All we want is more.
Emerging midway through 2014, and impressing instantly, Londoner Billie Black (at just 19 years of age), has been delivering some sophisticated late night soul. We’ve already had a taste of her first release, EP “000100”, but now 2015 calls for a main course.
