Stream or Download Mija’s ‘Secrets’ for Free

Mija has offered a free stream/download of ‘Secrets’.

The track was born out of her love for classic drum ‘n bass. She used the acapella vocals from Tegan & Sara’s ‘Boyfriend‘ as a placeholder but they stuck as the song progressed and T&S gave her permission to use the sample.


Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Kilo Kish’s ‘Obsessing’

Kilo Kish has shared the Elliott Sellers’ directed video for ‘Obsessing’ from her latest release Reflections in Real Time.

“The song was called ‘Obsessing’ before it was written. It was one of many prompts of different social subjects I placed in front of myself when I started writing. I like to explore man made spaces and boxes we create in which to live more comfortably. The mind is one of those things, boxes inside boxes and sometimes it can become stressed. I’m also kind of obsessed with this image of an individual malfunctioning, a cog in the flow of society. One walking the wrong way up the stairs during rush hour or whatever. Something not working perfectly well in its surroundings. Blending, but not exactly. Boring suit, boring parking garage and some girl (me) just exploding. So for this video, I was excited to play this game,” she said in a statement.

Kish also announced the dates of her upcoming The Life Aquatic tour with Vince Staples;


Stream Little Destroyer’s ‘Rattlesnakes’ for Free

Little Destroyer have been dividing their time between their hometown of Vancouver and LA where they have been working with producer Jarrett Holmes (Walk the Moon, Neon Trees, Hedley) on their forthcoming debut EP Strange Future.

Dave ‘Rave’ Ogilvie (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Carly Rae Jepsen) mixed the EP.

“‘Rattlesnakes’ is the overwhelming realization that the party doesn’t believe in you, that the fantasy of your pop and youth culture gives you nothing. That you’ve plundered and devoured everything in your path, but you’re still hungry, because it’s all without substance. It’s about the nights you become a mutant, and the mornings after. And it parallels the empty, dank & depressing vibe of a club, after last call, when the house lights turn on, to when the veil of fantasy lifts and you see it all for what is is; a monstrous feedback loop set to empty. Growing pains, growing into disillusionment,” the band said in a statement.
