Song of the Day: Different Crowd – VRWRK

Following the news of their signing to X-Ray touring (Gorillaz, PJ Harvey, T-Pain) plus the announcement of their headline show at London’s Corsica Studio on 1st November 2018 (get tickets HERE), London-based electronic – pop trio VRWRK (pronounced VR-WORK) have unveiled their soothing pop-tronic single ‘Different Crowd’, released via Run Tell Secrecy.

Taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘On the Outside’ – out on the 10th August – ‘Different World’ has caught the attention from the likes of The Line of Best Fit & The Independent and was well-received by fans when performed at their live shows across the globe – from a sold out show at Birthdays in Dalston, where they’re based, to headline shows at major festivals in Europe (Amsterdam Dance Event, Eurosonic, Pukkelpop), and even Egypt later this summer.

Song of the Day: Rabbithole – Shaefri


After stealing the top spot on NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Top Ten Music Video of 2016 list with previous effort, ‘Pixelate’, London-based electronic-pop artist SHAEFRI returns with second single ‘Rabbit Hole’ from her forthcoming EP ‘Pixelate’.

While ‘Pixelate’ explored a dysfunctional relationship, ‘Rabbit Hole’ deals with the agony of yearning for love. SHAEFRI paints a desperate character though her pained, heartfelt lyrics imploring the object of her affection to love her.

Born and raised in London with a mixed Irish-Egyptian heritage, SHAEFRI spent years honing her talents and developing her unique brand of haunting vocals and minimalistic beats amidst the London scene. Having performing at venues such as Notting Hill Arts Club and The Borderline alongside famous names including Babyshambles and Craigie Dodds (producer for Gorillaz, Amy Winehouse and Eliza Doolittle), the electronic-pop singer knows what it takes to pull her listeners in with mesmerising vocal hooks and warm, pulsing pads.

This one is very worthy of your time – have a listen to ‘Rabbit Hole’.
