Is Olisha Naiker the new Dua Lipa?

It’s not every day you get an unsigned pro sounding pop star… and an unsigned pro sounding pop star from Africa, that’s even better.

Meet Olisha Naiker (who’s Taylor Swift? this is Olisha Naiker). Her new single Starangers is one hell of a catchy tune. The fragility of her voice really captures her emotion in this song despite the strong up tempo beat of the track, it feels honest and real.

World-pop heroes Modiwo release new track ‘Never Give Up’

Hailing from Romania, Modiwo are no ordinary pop group. In fact, this isn’t just pop- it’s world-pop, taking inspiration from across the globe, from all kinds of people.

The band have written their own success story in Romania whilst contributing their time to supporting a number of charity initiatives too. For example, , they are currently involved with a charity called Fruit Fusion, where audiences attending their gigs will pay with fruit rather than money, the proceeds then being donated to local orphanages, in conjunction with The Bureau of Children’s’ Rights Protection. An average show can deliver up to 700kg of fruit to those most deserving. Modiwo carry this healthy living ethos through to their own lifestyles and into their music, promoting yoga and meditation as well as using their music as a form of relaxation therapy.

Joining together musical forces from Romania, Ukraine, Moldova and Hungary, their unique anthemic dream-pop sound is embellished in their live shows with a wide range of unusual influences including alpine horns, didgeridoos, and shakuhachi solos. Their latest track, “Never Give Up”, is an achingly blissful pillow of sunshine which brings to mind all the dreamiest elements of The Beloved.

‘Modern Soul’ from Les Kirsh

You’ll hear many people who say that soul music is dead, much like rock’n’roll, but these people are about to eat their hats as Les Kirsh is resurrecting the style after many years out of the game.

The scene is 1974: Les Kirsh has has been an emerging name in the soul scene for a while and he’s close to signing record deals and making the big time. Unfortunately, a car crash intervened and left Les’ dream hanging. He was in a coma for over a week and it took him around two years to fully recover, whilst he tried to relearn the songs he had written from before by picking up the guitar and strumming a few chords.

But recently, after a career pursued elsewhere, Les’ son stumbled across some of his old recordings, listened to them, realised they were vintage gold and consequently got his Dad back into the music game.

Les decided to pick three of his old tracks, ‘Say, ‘La La La’ and ‘Tell Me To My Face’ which he then took over to renowned producer, Andy Whitmore, who worked his magic and brought them into the modern day. Hence, Les’s self-labelled genre of ‘modern soul’.

Within the three tracks, there’s a lot of juggling with genres as Les likes to see himself as a complete songwriter, but this only shows his ability to adapt, which of course, is a good thing. There’s elements of pop, rock, even reggae, but at the end of the day, Les has always been a soul man.

Music Theory’s ‘Down the Aisle’

Love songs don’t come much purer than Music Theory’s ‘Down The Aisle’. Yes, love is a typical subject that a lot of artists write about, but fewer do it with as much honesty as Egyptian artist, Music Theory.

As a youngster, Music Theory admits that he was a shy character, but as he grew up he realised that music was a therapeutic release that allowed him to become more connected with his thoughts and dreams.

Music Theory categorises his style as mainstream pop, but he often strays into the worlds of rock, R&B and dance when it comes to creating his catchy style of music.

Inspired by some of the best in the business, including Maroon 5, Michael Jackson and Usher, Music Theory has a strong musical pedigree to live up to, but he certainly does this with ‘Down The Aisle’, which you can watch the video for here:

Chey – Dirty Love

Having dreamed of a successful career in the music business all her life, Chey appeared on a number of national television shows, including ‘Saturday Superstore’ as well as Owen Money’s ‘Just up your Street’. Chey also appeared on ‘Moon and Stars’ with Rupert Moon ex Welsh Rugby star (pictured).

It is only recently however that her career has begun to take flight after being spotted by top producer David Ezra, who has worked with X Factor finalists ‘Reggie and Bollie’ who have had over 4 million hits on YouTube, David says “when I came across Chey’s demo I loved her voice and just had to invite her to my studio in London, I brought in Shakil Hussain, a songwriter also from London to join us and within one day we had written and recorded Dirty Love.”

 

Dirty Love takes a unique view upon a love affair where the woman is in total control of what happens next. Speaking on the track Chey says “I wanted this song to emphasise the power of a woman, and how she uses her sexuality to get what she wants.” Having had previous support from Chris Needs MBE (BBC Wales), Chey hopes her new single will captivate audiences.

 

 

Dirty Love is set for official release on January 20th 2017, and available for pre-order December 23 on ITunes, Spotify and Tidal.

Ethereal and experimental new EP ‘Circus’ from alternative pop artist Daisy and The Dark

 

‘Somewhere between the ghostly gliding & luscious laments of Kate Bush, the boldness of Björk and the haunting images of Kylie Minogue floating in a lake, comes Sarah Kayte Foster.’ – Backseat Mafia

‘Resplendent, bold and ambitious.  It’s her daringness to experiment  – and those ethereal, oscillating vocals – that sets Daisy and The Dark apart’ – Chart Shaker

Cinematic in atmosphere and brimming with carnivalesque creativity, Circus is the brand new exciting EP from experimental pop artist Daisy and The Dark (aka Sarah Kayte Foster).

Previously a member of classical chart-topping band the Mediaeval Baebes for five years, Sarah left the band in 2014, after charting at No. 8 in the UK Classical Charts with the double album ‘Of Kings and Angels’.

She has since poured her musical talent into a solo career as Daisy, performing theatrical shows at Secret Garden Party and the Royal Albert Hall, and releasing her 2015 debut EP ‘Red Planet’ as a new interactive app which IBM called ‘the best collaboration between music and technology I’ve seen in a long time.’   The record went on to receive a whole host of online coverage, garnering praise from the likes of SupaJam, Chart Shaker and Noizze.

Her new EP ‘Circus’ is set for release July 8th.

Stream lead single ‘Circus’ here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgPTG6bLTDg

A vibrant video directed by BAFTA award winning Shreepali Patel accompanies lead single and title track ‘Circus’, with cinematography coming courtesy of award-winner Nicola Daley – making it one of the few music videos to have an all female team at the helm.

Sarah’s creative energy extends beyond music and she has worked extensively as a professional actress, as well as creating artwork, videos, costume and performance art all inspired, like her songs, by her great love of cinema and magic.

Her ethereal and other-worldly style is sure to appeal to fans of artists like Kate Bush, Bjork, FKA Twigs, Bat for Lashes and David Bowie.

Circus EP will be released on July 8th via Foster’s own label, Red Planet Records, and she will play a special free show at Miranda, Ace Hotel London on July 8th to mark the release.  For limited free guest list contact info@daisyandthedark.com.
