You Are Number Six (or YANS) are a duo from France and this is their new EP VHS Dreams. These guys perform a kind of electronic music that brings a lot of everything going on from the 80’s into the modern day, and gets it sounding as glitchy as possible to really ramp up its gothic appeal. It’s very intriguing, and I’m particularly glad they’re on Tree Machine Records.

M+A are an Italian duo and this is their new single Everything Will Be Alright. I became a huge fan of these guys after hearing the wonderful Anyway Milkyway EP last year, which featured some of my favourite summery tracks in ‘Do the Shout’ and ‘Habes’. If you haven’t heard M+A’s material before I would highly recommend you check out that EP, it’s seriously good.

Kid North is a three piece band from France and this is their new album New Waters. These guys have been tickling the hairs in my ears with their delightful singles Gold and Rip Tide and now the record’s out I’m excited to jam the entire thing into my eardrums. If you’re a fan of sugary sweet pop music mixed with strong electronic elements and even a slight hint of heaviness then I highly recommend that you check this record out.
Gold kicks off the record with a couple synth beats that immediately produces a sunny instrumental and puts a smile on your face. Kid North add to this upbeat intro by throwing a thick layer of sketchy guitars on top which adds some much needed grit which prevents the sound from becoming a little too sweet. The track blossoms into a superb little number as the trio deliver some M83-esque vocals and melodies which accompany the synthesiser sounds perfectly. Geometrical then follows suit by equalling the sunny quota with an instrumental that focuses more on the guitars as the band deliver a sound that’s rooted with indie guitar riffs and basslines that offer a hint of texture and groove to the mix. Great song.
