New Track: Addicted – Kill J

Danish experimental pop star KILL J has seen her early singles catapulted to No.1 spot on the Hype Machine’s ‘Most Popular’ and ‘Twitter’ charts.

Steadily putting out amazing singles and EPs over the years, the singer-songwriter and producer has already gained a legion of fans including The Guardian,The Fader, Pigeons and The 405, The Line Of Best Fit and Huck Magazine, whilst receiving airplays from the likes of Huw Stephens and Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Mamiko Motto on NTS Radio and even a spin on Zane Lowe’s Beats1, culminating in a live session from the BBC legendary Maida Vale Studio for Huw Stephens.

Fast forward to today, the art-pop muse is back with ‘Addicted’, the fourth offering from her forthcoming new album ‘Superposition’. The new cut, out 14th June via Nettwerkon , follows on last year’s fiercely political ‘Strange Fruits of The Sea’, the powerful ‘Dead Weight Soldier’ and the recently released ‘Silver Spoon’. The compelling visuals perfectly depict KILL J as the queen of indulgence and unrestraint wearing Trash Couture and Ann Wiberg couture dresses.

Conformity has never been KILL J’s trademark and she has never played by the rule book. Armed with her latest release, she only looks set to further her position as one of Scandinavia’s most exciting exports: a reputation that will be cemented with her upcoming new album, due on 7th June.

New Music Video: You Saw The Devil In Me – Liam Bailey

Nottingham soul musician LIAM BAILEY is marching on with his highly anticipated comeback, already garnering support from Clash Magazine, Complex, BBC 1Xtra, Earmilk and SoulBounce, among others, as he gears up to release his fourth studio EP titled Brand New on February 1, 2019. Today, he double backs with the EP’s excellent second single ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’ and its accompanying visuals, premiered via Billboard.

Written by LIAM BAILEY and produced by frequent collaborator on this new project, Rich Cooper, whose previous production credits include work for Banks, Lucy Rose, Billie Marten and Tom Odell, ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’ is an introspective and thought-provoking piano ballad backed by minimalist yet stirring string arrangements and gospel choral backing vocals, over which LIAM BAILEY bares his heart out, about facing his inner demons.

The visuals for ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’ see Liam Bailey collaborating once again with James Beale, who directed the video for his recent single ‘Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her’ featuring Maverick Sabre. Beale also directed the visuals for Temples’ ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’ and Lion’s ‘Self Control’, as well as previous work for Adidas, Meadowlark and River Island. Filmed in Bulgaria, the visuals are stripped back, and allow for the record to take centre stage and grip the audience.

From his debut EPs, which were released by Amy Winehouse, his UK top 5 single with Chase & Status, and his seminal debut album, to collaborations with the likes of Gorillaz and Salaam Remi, touring with Paloma Faith and Ellie Goulding, and support from Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and Jools Holland, LIAM BAILEY continues to be one of the finest voices and purest talents in British soul…check out the video below…
