Sounds of the Week 5th November
Mona & Maria
Mona & Maria are a folk duo that hail from Oslo. Formerly members of a Nordic Band Bazooka Boppers, Mona Andersen and Maria Knudsen reuinited with eachother once the group disbanded. Their debut album "My Sun" was released back in October, and I have to say that I am enjoying it quite a bit. Their harmonies go perfectly together, and they are definitely worth a listen. Here's one of my favourite songs of the the album, coincidentally called "My Sun"
Sway Clarke II
Berlin Artist Sway Clarke II seeks inspiration from both Hip Hop and Folk music. This concoction of genres creates quite an interesing sound. Sway also features on Tinie Tempah's newest single "Tears Run Dry". His vocals on the track really work for me and was a nice addition to the song. Hopefully we'll be seeing more of this man in the near future with more releases. But for now you can stream his single "I don't need much" here.
Paris based BlakeSmith caught my attention on Soundcloud not too long ago after a collaboration he did with fellow producer Juan Cristobal, which can be found here. His Hip Hop/Funk experimental sound has got me hooked, and waiting for more. But for now heres a song he recently uploaded to his soundcloud.
