As we navigate the end of the festival season and head into album release and tour territory, we’re basking in the abundance of new music with this month’s PR roundup.
To close the summer, we had GOLDHOUSE’s gorgeous sun-soaked remix of Lyrah‘s dark pop number, the glorious Emilia Martensson indulged us with her jazz folk fusion, and we had DJ Chillz to soundtrack our late night parties.
Despite the upcoming change in season, we have plenty of treats in store for you, with releases from the likes of Bristolian quartet Salute The Sun, 60s surfers ALAIAS, R&B artist Kwaku Asante, and folk favourite Plàsi.
Emilia Martensson released the first single from her upcoming fourth album ‘Loredana’. ‘Weariest River’ was a gentle introduction into Emilia’s new musical chapter, with emotive vocals and considered guitar notes. Named after her mother, the LP is a tribute and celebration of mother-daughter relationships across the world. Emilia has previously received support from Jasswise and JazzUK, to name a few. The full LP will be released on 4th November on Babel Label.
‘Don’t Make Me (Goldhouse Remix)’
Originally a down-tempo pop track, GOLDHOUSE turned Lyrah’s ‘Don’t Make Me’ into an infectious dancefloor number. Receiving widespread support from Come Here Floyd, Fashionably Early, and many more, Lyrah also enjoyed an Introducing feature on Get In Her Ears. ‘Don’t Make Me (Goldhouse Remix)’ has also managed to reach over 75,000 streams online.
Influenced by London’s house music scene, DJ Chillz’s most recent track ‘Higher’ premiered on Complex and has received support from Earmilk, Acid Stag, and IhouseU. The track continues Chillz’ whimsical production and incorporates elements of the underground London house and classic global club culture; keep an eye on her socials for upcoming DJ sets.
