Must Listen: Julietta and Emma Jensen

julietta

Julietta has a wistful vibe that is reminiscent of alterna-pop acts like BANKS, with nostalgic sensibilities like Lana Del Rey. “Beach Break” was written while she was spending time in Nicaragua. In fact, the opening sounds in this song are actual field recordings of the jungle surroundings. You don’t wanna skip over this tune — check it out below:

While you’re at it, check out Norway beauty Emma Jensen, too. Signed with Majestic Casual, she produces her own music (high fives)! Emma says, “‘Closer’ is about the feeling when you know you’re about to drift away from or lose someone, but you really want to hold on and let the person know that you’ll give it all to make things work.”

Listen: Lana Del Rey – “Ultraviolence” (Hook N Sling Remix) 

While he may come from the chilled-out shores of Bondi Beach, Australia, Hook N Slings musical creations are anything but mellow. His remix of Lana Del Rey’s chart-topping single “Ultraviolence” has already garnered over a million combined streams on Soundcloud and Youtube, and today the highly-anticipated official remix video is finally released on Armada Music.

First premiered exclusively on Idolator, the video features trippy, kaleidoscope-like production by nationally-acclaimed visual artist Ego and perfectly blends elements from the original version with influence of Hook N Sling’s house-infused remake. Watch below.

The down under producer’s meticulously crafted releases have been championed by the likes of Tiesto, Sander Van Doorn, Nicky Romero and more, and he’s collaborated with all-star talents such as NERVO, Wolfgang Garner, Kaskade, Calvin Harris, Miike Snow, Axwell, and now Lana Del Rey.

Check ‘Em Out: Deep Sea Arcade

Having just completed a blistering run around Australia, DEEP SEA ARCADE blew audiences away with some killer new tracks crafted during their nine-month sojourn to the UK, a preview of next year’s sophomore album. 

The band have today dropped a psychedelic visual feast for their new track “Black Cat”, drawing both on footage from their trip and on footage submitted by fans.

The band have spent the best part of the last year soaking up the UK culture and imparting some of their own while working on a slew of new tracks, quickly creating the same buzz in their temporary home of London which lead to them being one of Sydney’s most respected indie acts. 

Recorded and mixed by Dan Grech-Margueray (Lana Del Rey, The Vaccines, Howling Bells, The Kooks), Black Cat has proven a worthy followup to their debut album Outlands, which had a worldwide 2012 release through Ivy League Records, with singles heavily supported in Australia by national youth network Triple J and influential community station FBI and in the UK by BBC 1, BBC 6, and XFM. 

Aside from a sold out tour Australia’s major cities and a spot on Australia’s prestigious Big Day Out festival, the band have been on the road with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Charlatans, Girls, Kaiser Chiefs, Cloud Control and Modest Mouse. They have also toured the UK and Europe extensively, including appearances at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival, The Great Escape In Brighton, Liverpool Sound City, Berlin Independent Night, Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg and sold out shows in London before returning to Australia for their recent welcome home tour… a warmup to what is going to be a huge 2014.
