Pedro Meirelles – Tear (Spotify)

Pedro Meirelles – Tear
(Spotify)

Pedro Meirelles is a classical/rock composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist from Rio de Janeiro.
Throughout time, while developing his hybrid alternations of dissonant minimalism and percussive orchestrations, Meirelles began building and licensing his extensive solo catalogue while also working with renowned names such as Gogol Bordello, Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Goran Bregovic and Andrew Scheps.
“Tear” is an expansive track, building from gentle trickles into a triumphant emotive escalation. The first section resembles the beginning of a snowfall, gentle in its introduction, before a blizzard envelops the night. The track manages to effectively convey a rising-and-falling feel in under two minutes, within a wintry atmospheric pull.

Space Above, Tom Young – Nobody Home (Spotify)

Space Above, Tom Young – Nobody Home
(Spotify)

The new single ‘Nobody Home’ was written with New Zealand’s Tom Young of popular band LEISURE and songwriter / producer in his own right.
Presented in a hypnotic space of glitch beats and rhythmical bass, the landscape of Space Above’s trip-hop influences and dark moods showcased allowed for Tom’s vocal to propel the track further in to a world of depth, suspense and crescendo.
Space Above is the atmospheric-electronic project of New Zealand music producer Aaron Short, formerly of The Naked And Famous. Space Above strays from pop structures in an exploration of ethereal sounds and dance floor progressions. Blending spacious vocal melodies from artists including Alisa Xayalith, BOYBOY, So Below, with intoxicating electronic twists, Short is always looking further outwards for inspiration.
The project began with a series of singles and remixes emerging from Short’s home studio in Echo Park during 2015, and a full-length album titled ‘Still’ following in 2017. With its lead single ‘Fall Through’ featuring as Todays Top Tune on KCRW, and its musical themes of deeply frozen escapism, the record made for a journey that caught ears from The Line of Best Fit and Hillydilly, and premiered on Consequence of Sound.

The Tristones – First World Problems
(Spotify)

The Tristones, led by the energetic and charismatic blues rocker Tristan Clark from New York, NY, today releases, “First World Problems,” the second single from his upcoming album Camaro, out in April. The track was written by Clark and his good friend Jordan Venn, a frequent collaborator. “We had the idea of writing a first person narrative on how easy it is to get annoyed about social media and other trivial day-to-day events, but all with a sense of humour,” says Clark. The playful, upbeat tune addresses the anxieties and restlessness caused by living in a digital world, presented in a rocking, tongue-in-cheek tone. “I’ve got first order problems / of the first world,” explains Clark in the song.
