A few years ago we ran a weekly series briefly featuring artists and releases from around the world. We thought this would be a good time to resurrect the series. Today's artists are from China and Brooklyn.
"Lackluster" from Nova Heart
Nova Heart is a Chinese trio headed by Helen Feng (vocals/keys), with Bo Xuan (bass) and Shi Lu (drums). Released last week, "Lackluster" offers a fresh take on icy electro pop. The band will tour Europe in late June and July, including an appearance at Glastonbury. An LP is coming in the fall.
"Machine" from HoneyChrome
Brooklyn electronic/EMD wizard HoneyChrome will release the six-track EP All The Right Places on July 20. You can sample "Machine" below (note that it is a free download), and you can pre-order the EP at the Bandcamp link.
