Shivum Sharma – Flicker

A beautiful, stirring voice tinged with sadness and longing, sometimes distorted, sometimes touched with reverb and layered over keys, Shivum Sharma is from South London, currently signed to National Anthem – which is also label home to Vaults, CHVRCHES and… Continue Reading →

Erotic Market – Rumblin

The ‘Your Mum’ joke in the influences section of their facebook biog should give you an idea of what to expect from kyoto/Jamaica – spawned HotWave duo Erotic Market. Well… at least in terms of personality – a little bit cheeky, a… Continue Reading →
