Track of the Day

Track of The Day 15 5 Ariana and The Rose

Ariana And The Rose make the sort of bewitching, creative, odd, and addictive music that questions the boundaries of pop itself.

A stellar set at SXSW earlier this year ignited an explosive helping of hype, with new EP ‘Retrograde’ impacting at just the right time.

“This EP marks the end of a period of my life that most literally felt like it was in retrograde,” says Ariana. “Each track encapsulates these moments over the last year or so where I was really defining myself personally and artistically and the music is a sonic exploration of that growth and ultimately personal transformation.”

Matching gloriously colourful production to some enthralling lyricism, it’s the most dynamic, exuberant, and downright creative document to hold the project’s name.

EP highlight ‘These Ruins’ have been given a sparse and tender rendering, a special performance for The Manhattan Sessions.

Clash has first play, and it shows another, rather dramatic side to Ariana And The Rose.

Tune in now.

Track of The Day 15/4 – Astrid S

It’s important to remember that Astrid S is still only 20 years old. Important, because what lies ahead of her could be very special indeed.

Breakthrough cut ‘Hurts So Good’ was streamed more than 120 million times, turning the quiet Norwegian talent into a global phenomenon.

Not that she’s allowed the hype to obscure her path. Astrid S is set to dominate 2017, startling with sparkling new single ‘Breathe’.

Out now, it’s a glorious piece of pop music, all day-glo melodies and lyrics that cut just a little deeper than most.

Clash is able to premiere the LAUV remix, and it soaks the song in flouro-tinged electronics while retaining that essential emotional core.

Track of The Day 12/4 – Toyko

Every generation seems to need someone brave enough to stand up and say: It’s OK to be weird.

From David Bowie to Kurt Cobain, Morrissey to Andre 3000, there’s a certain potency is simply being yourself.

Los Angeles alt-pop newcomer Toyko follows in this lineage, standing outside the crowd yet also above it all.

New cut ‘Like What I Like’ offers impeccable pop melodies, given a dream-like slant that borders on the surreal.

Toyko explains: “The song was written for every one who has a weird interest or quirk that maybe not everyone understands, even if that weird interest is a song. I wanted something that speaks to everyone’s weird side and re-assures them to stay true to themselves – to live loud, and like what you like.”
