Dig of the Day: Casi 

Chess Club Records have got some super talented artists on their roaster at the moment, but today we’re here to recommend their newest signee, Casi.

Seven month ago we were blessed with debut track “Lion” setting the bar high for our one’s to watch in 2017. Barely three month in, we’re drawing blood with a brutal cut called  “The Beast.”

If you have already got scars from loving MO, Jungle or Wolf Alice then Casi is the next star to get your teeth into. She’s already announced her appearance at this years The Great Escape in May, but if like me can’t wait to get your claws in Casi in live form then make sure you get down to London’s Omeara on 7th March. She will be supporting her fellow Chess Club Records star Skott.

It’s a night not to be missed!

Dig of the Day: Emma Lauran 

Check-Mate : Emma Lauran has just released her debut release “Little Too Much” .

Growing up Emma lived in East-Devon but if she’s to make it as singer she needs to play the game.

A music career is like a game of chess. Whether your a King and Queen your aim is to cross your component and conquer victory. Meanwhile you have a set of pawns all there fighting for you to get noticed. Roll with me, this is your fan-base! Some fall by the waste-side some are loyal. The Rooks are your management, Knights are your family, and the bishops are your friends.

“Little Too Much” is the first release since her move to London and we think it’s definitely worthy of wining a few pawns.

 

Dig of the Day: Niia

Filling the Jessie Ware void is L.A vocalist Niia with her brand new track “Hurt You First.”

As the title suggests this track is about destructive love. Many singers choose to sing about love or heartbreak because it’s one thing that unites us. Niia is different, she not here to embrace love nor sing about a breakup. Instead she’s exhaling sincere and sorrowful feelings on self-love to protect herself from pain.

Dig of the Day: ARY

Ariadne Loisworth has adopted her childhood nickname Ary as the ideal introduction to launch her career as a Singer, as we would have to agree it’s a smart move! With a short yet striking stage-name and her homeland as Olso, on paper this smells like burnt caramel.

In 2015 her track “Higher” made a real buzz in Norway but it’s her latest track “Childhood Dreams” which has set UK fire alarms ringing. The track has a pulsating bass line charred with a Lorde-esq tone. Aged 23, she is hopefully one should always hang onto those childhood dreams and remain optimistic of them being reached. We should try a spoonful of Ary’s sweetener by clicking the link below:

 

 

Dig of the Day: Enisa

Sound cloud can sometimes be a cattle-market of dross singers digging their favourite covers but there are times when you’ll find yourself digging a new find. Today’s milk is Enisa, a singer songwriter from Brooklyn New York City who caught our attention with debut track “Burn this bridge”.

The song was written about a situation that backfired. She had high hopes someone she once knew would help her in pursuing her career but instead  they turned around and told her she wasn’t going to make it. Determined to not let negativity hold her back she churned her energy back into her music. The result speaks for itself.

Dig of the Day: RENÉ

If R&B voices are your tipple then “Voices” by Rene is girl you’ll need to know about. Vocally she’s a night songstress, so much so she could be nicknamed London’s nightingale.

“Voices” is a refined song about self-validation. Sometimes we struggle to fight the battles life throws at us but each time we stand tall.  Easy on the ear and ideal for that perfect night in with a bottle of wine combo, Rene is all you need to unwind after a long hard day. Too many people make background music, but not everyone makes background music with substance enough to catch the prey.

 

Dig of the Day: Laoise

January 2017 will see the release  of the debut EP”Halfway” from Irish Singer/Songwriter Laoise.  New to the scene, and if  her social media profile is anything to go by, she’s a lover of Pink. ( By pink we mean the colour we are yet to know her view US pop hitmaker P!INK.

The first song released of her EP is a track called “You.”  Production get to a minimal, with only three cords used Laoise was adamant  she would see how far she could push it.

Her music is filled with compassion that hangs on your well-being. To later find she’s going through recovery from mental and physical difficulties, Halfway is sure to be an EP full of depth.

 

Dig of the Day: Alice Merton 

Bass heavy, confident and ready to expose herself to talent to the world, Alice Merton has dropped a debut worthy of a chart position.

“No Roots” is catchy, bold and certainly a track one could relate to. She sings, “I’ve got no roots for my home it was never on the ground” but instead of making it a sad number, she’s delivers the message you can find roots in the sky.

Finding comfort in her traveler lifestyle is a great source of future tracks and to also share experience. Watch this space, Alice Merton could find herself on your local radio station come 2017.

Dig of the Day: Storme 

Scandinavia is renown for brilliance when it comes to finding the next big star, a few dustings has hit our radar in the form of Zara Larsson, Astrid S, Leon and Marlene.

Our newest snow angel, is Storme. She’s is a native Swede who has recently moved to London in the hope to pursue her career as a singer.

The first snowflake as fallen and it’s already enough to defrost your mood. “Solider” consists of howling highs and dreamy droplets from the keys. Whilst holding some familiarity to Singer Songwriter Rae Morris, Storm has delivered dream pop glossiness that has us hungry for more. Click the link below to be drifted away by Storme :

Dig of the Day: Ebhoni

Colour-wheel pop eat your heart out has occurred, with the dazzling new track “Bye Baby” by Ebhoni.  Toronto’s R&B songstress has been painting her picture over the last few months with complementary tracks “Time” and “Eagle.” It is this third splash of primary material which brings the diamonds and pearls as she bares all to say goodbye to an ex-lover.

Ebhoni is Picasso’s answer to music. Listen to her art below:
