Midnight Mystery Club Released Their Stunning Single, ‘Keep A Beat’ Today!

Indie Dance duo MIDNIGHT MYSTERY CLUB’s original version of ‘Keep A Beat’ was released back in 2015 on Secret Life label out of Ibiza and was featured on a few Balearic compilations like Cafe Mambos.

Fast forward to the present day, the pair have released a revamped version of the track, possessing a softer take on the chilled ibizan – esque arrangements with 80s soul/pop influences.

‘Keep A Beat’ is available from today (3rd July) on all major music platforms. Check it out below…

 

EP Review: Turns Out We Should have Stayed At Home – Lucky Iris

Consisting of vocalist Maeve Florsheim and instrumentalist Jasper Exley, electro pop duo LUCKY IRIS‘ EP, ‘Turns Out We Should Have Stayed At Home’, maybe a concept collection that promises a blinding night out that didn’t go to plan, but it’s far from a disappointment (sorry for giving the game away way too early!)

The ‘sparkyness’ of single, ‘Get Ready With Me’, kicks off the EP with its distinctive intermittent electronic flow that gives off a ‘bright eyed and bushy tail’ sensation. Changing the EP’s mood completely, comes the intimate setting of second effort, ‘Take 5 (Why Can’t You See Me)’ where the lone, melancholic piano keys along with Florsheim’s woeful vocal performance, which somewhat gives off a jazzy/bluesy vibe, mirrors the image of watching everyone enjoying themselves in which you don’t feel a part of.

Picking up the tempo is ‘Glitter Vision’ with its feathery soft four-on-the-floor pattern, leading to a jarringly delightful drive, which tells of the moment where you attempt to make a night of it. Concluding the EP is ‘I Fell Backwards’, another intimate, piano-led piece, which reflects on a disastrous night through Florsheim’s heartfelt vocals which gains strength and becomes soulful.

With ‘Turns Out We Should Have Stayed At Home’, the duo offers some solace to an experience that we all had in some point on our lives, through pleasantly experimental numbers and classic pieces that will be well received by a wider audience. Definitely worth a trial…have a listen below…

BBC 6 Music-Approved Duo Betty Pulls A Fast One Shares Upcoming Single, ‘PlantHunter’

After receiving a firm backing from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, alternative electro/pop outfit BETTY PULLS A FAST ONE (BPFO) are back with full force for their first release of the year titled ‘PlantHunter’.

An airy bed of lo-fi electronics introduces the three-and-a-half minute piece, providing the perfect platform for the delightfully askew vocal performance – which puts you in the mind of 80s pop band Orange Juice and 90s alternative rock band Pulp – to claim centre stage.

BPFO consists of Mal R and Jon K, who came under the radar with their 2016 debut song ‘Today I am Prince’, followed up by their debut album ‘Dressed in Birds’ released in 2018, which chronicles unrequited love and how the planet seems to be set on course for a downward spiral.

The album included their first official single ‘It’s Her Kindness (That Turns Me On)’ which was played on BBC 6 Music and described as ‘classic songwriting’. Tracks from the album have since featured on Lonely Oak Radio, Wolfman Radio and Radio Candy.

As well as providing vocals for BPFO, vocalist and songwriter, Malo Ramsoir has appeared on Hungary’s national Petőfi TV and has also recorded with musicians in the UK, Argentina, Hungary and Spain. As vocalist, he also makes one half of the electronic duo, LiiN.

Songwriter and musician Jon K also has another project up his sleeve with an instrumental collection of music under the name S.W.O.R.N.

Available on all major music platforms from 25th March, ‘PlantHunter’ is the first release from their album, coming out later this year.
