Video of the Moment #1897: Tei Shi

 
By on Monday, 24th August 2015 at 6:00 pm
 

Valerie Teicher aka Tei Shi is originally from Bogota, Colombia. So it makes perfect sense that her home country called her back for her new promo for ‘See Me’, which was released as a single late in 2014 (read my review of the single from back then here). It also appears on Tei Shi’s EP ‘Verde’, which was released this past spring. This is one of the most beautifully shot music videos I’ve seen in a long while; shots of both the natural and urban worlds are interspersed in here, which work well with the dreaminess of the song. Watch the video below.

Last week, Gengahr revealed this tour video from this past winter, when they went out on tour with alt-J. It’s backed by their song ‘Trampoline’, which figures on their debut album ‘A Dream Outside’, released back in June on Transgressive Records. (Read my review of their debut here.)

You can catch Gengahr on their headline tour in October in the UK that begins in Brighton on the 6th of October; all the dates are listed here. For more on Gengahr on TGTF, head this way.

Single Review: PILLARS – You Got This

 
By on Monday, 24th August 2015 at 12:00 pm
 

You only have to listen to a sample of London-based newcomer PILLARS to realise that she is the kind of artist that can give you goose bumps on top of your goose bumps. Fresh off the back of her second single’s whirlwind success and an appearance at The Great Escape Festival 2015 in May, the elusive songwriter has unveiled ‘You Got This’: a sophisticated, intriguing number with a poignant message.

There’s a real coherence to PILLARS’ music, with her latest track perfectly slotting into her growing collection of ambient electronica (which already boasts her debut single ‘Attacker’ and the follow-up ‘Woman Without Her Love’), while also revealing more about the singer’s restricted musical and personal identity. The track, which uses samples of her own voice to build up distinctive, hypnotic arrangements, has a sound that is both pleasantly familiar, yet is delicately injected with just enough darkness to leave the hairs on the back of your neck trembling for more.

Produced by Deafkid and recorded and mixed by Brett Shaw (Florence and the Machine, Say Lou Lou) at Peckham’s 123 studios, ‘You Got This’ features well-crafted, cryptic lyrics, which are sung over a bed of murky basslines and hard-hitting synths. There’s an elegant, haunting tone to PILLARS’ voice that you can’t help but appreciate and admire.

With three solid singles under her belt already and a featured vocalist credit on ‘Temptress’ from hotly-tipped UK producer Daktyl, PILLARS has well and truly got the ball rolling in terms of her music career. In order to keep that momentum going, the songwriter will need to continue to output music of this calibre (whether it be another new single or possibly even an album). With preparations well underway for a debut London show this summer, this certainly won’t be the last we’ve seen of PILLARS, something this reviewer is extremely thankful for.

8/10

PILLARS’ single ‘You Got This’ is out now on East City Records.

By on Monday, 24th August 2015 at 8:30 am
 

Manchester indie pop heroes The Courteeners have announced a massive autumn tour of the UK. The series of dates concludes at home for the band with a record-breaking five back-to-back dates at the venerated Manchester Apollo between the 8th and the 12th of December. Tickets for the gigs in November and December go on sale this Wednesday, the 26th of August, at 9 AM. In case you have any doubt, I’d recommend you snap up tickets to this tour ASAP, as I’m sure these dates will sell out quickly.
