Usken – The Nest
(Spotify)

In 2016, during a journey of more than 4,000 kms across Scandinavia, Isabelle (ex LO vocals) and Yann (ex LO guitar) discovered a tiny island at the entrance of a Norwegian fjord: Usken. A guitar, a computer loaned on the spot and some explanations of the musical programming sound like an obvious fact: Usken will be a duo, and this is the use of machines that will make it possible to reconcile influences as varied as trip hop and electronic music for Isabelle, the garage and 60s music for Yann.

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.
