Tel-Aviv based trio GARDEN CITY MOVEMENT release their new single ‘Miss You (Under Shimokita Sky)’ – a dreamy electronic number released via Late Night Stories.
Mixing an eclectic blend of sounds and styles, ‘Miss You (Under Shimokita Sky)’ is a masterful indie dance anthem. Utilising a combination of dream-like vocals and languid electronic beats, the trio’s masterful production and lyricism touches on the significance of passing time, relationships and loneliness in the modern world.
GARDEN CITY MOVEMENT (Johnny Sharoni, Roy Avital and Yoav Saar) broke through at the end of 2013 with the launch of their debut single ‘Move On’. After the successful release of multiple EPs and stand-alone tracks, the band’s popularity skyrocketed, recording live sessions for Boiler Room, Majestic Casual and FACT, as well as opening sets for Bonobo, Caribou and alt-J.
This year now sees the artistic collective embark on their first tour of Japan and Tawain – exploring the cultures and climates that inspired the track’s release…have a listen below:
New York’s Jazz Fusion Group ANY GAMA makes no apologies for what they stand for and jam out their own pieces as well as leaving a distinct mark on classics through their latest EP entitled, ‘The Flux Session.’
Led and founded by Israeli pianist Roni GBZ Jr, ANY GAMA gives a rather upbeat introduction through ‘Running Away’ where the bold and the flirtatious trumpets takes the limelight with raciness yet elegant presence of the piano keys providing the perfect bluesy backdrop.
While more of their original pieces such as ‘Boredom of a Friday’s Afternoon’ and ‘Softly Touching’ provides the stunningly tranquil side of the collection, the epic moment (personally) lies with their interpretation of David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’, a tranquil piano-led piece, in which the trumpets gives an euphoric build up while not straying too far away from the 70s classic.
This instrumental EP does very well without utilising any vocals, as each instrument in all the arrangements take their place to convey the message that’s more prominent than any spoken word.

Latvian trio CARNIVAL YOUTH are geared up to release their double A side single, featuring ‘Birthday’ and ‘Phantom Planet’, out tomorrow (16th March) via their own label, Carnival Youth through The Orchard.
Blending gloriously hazy vocals with Tame Impala-esque jangle guitars, the two new songs manage to pull of an incredible combination of the melodic, experimental and catchy sound for which the band have become known for.
The singles follow up to a series of internationally acclaimed releases, which gained the band the title of Latvia’s biggest musical export. Part of a new generation of bands coming out from the Baltic, CARNIVAL YOUTH became the first Latvian act to win The European Border Breakers Award (EBBA) and EBBA ‘Public Choice Award’ at Eurosonic.
Their debut EP ‘Never Have Enough’ opened the doors to the European Festivals circuit, as well as gaining the band a steady radio support across Europe and the UK, including backing from 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq.
Three years later and over two million Spotify plays, their first debut album ‘No Clouds Allowed’ ended up being rewarded as Best Debut Album of The Year in Latvia, earning them support from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, John Kennedy on Xposure, and Jim Gellatly on Amazing Radio.

Continuing the stream of good music from the UK here on NEW LEASE MUSIC, is London band REVOLVERS and their infectiously racy single, ‘True Love’, now out on all streaming/downloads sites.
Taking their stage name from the Beatles’ iconic album, The Revolver – and they make no sweet about it – the four-piece rockers was formed in 2017 and quickly clocked up a heavy following through jamming at live gigs across the capital with their fusion of modern indie rock and classic rock, inspired from the 60s and 70s.
The guys released their debut EP, ‘Indie Heroes’ last January, which incorporated a pop vibe to their hell-raising trademark, was met with positive feedback from critics and fans. This year, the guys are going even harder and with the release of four singles. The first offering of the year, ‘True Love’, is a bittersweet, nostalgic number with an outro full of hope that’s impossible to hate.
