Ivory Caffee: Shades

Jazzy soulpop band Ivory Caffee have just released their debut EP Shades. The Dutch trio offer four tracks of mainstream lounge music with a bit of electronics and sound effects. Plenty of chops and singer Thaïsia Stolk can carry a tune, and Shangho Dekker (keyboards) and Prince Verstraten (guitar) came up with some interesting ideas.

Shades is a no-brainer for boutique background music. The potential is there to get people paying more attention. They should consider turning it up a notch or two and a change of pace wouldn't hurt either.

HCTF European premiere: Bella Loka's new single We Are Young

London based indie electropop duo Bella Loka are quick to release We Are Young, the other half of their new double A-side single. It's a cheerful and abrasive one-fingered salute to the music industry, driven forward by the dry sound of an acoustic guitar. They recorded it at Abbey Road Studios, with in-house producers Rob Cass & Pearse MacIntyre (Cave Productions) working their magic as the controls. It will be included on their debut full-length The Light, The Mud & The Dark later this year.

We Are Young is released on DEFDISCO. Buy it from iTunes.

Live dates:
  • 07/23 Sheffield, UK @ DEFDISCO Stage - Tramlines
  • 07/30 Faringdon, UK @ Follyfest 2016
