Celebrated music producer Wax Tailor defies genres with unusual LP

As soon as we saw the dystopian society created in Wax Tailor’s music video for ‘Misery ft. Rosemary Standley’, we knew he was one to watch. We also found out about his latest album, Shadow Of Their Suns, which immediately earned itself a page in our release diary. On Friday, 8th of January, we were finally treated to the long-awaited album and it’s been played on repeat since then.

Where do we start? Wax Tailor’s reverence for displaying other artist’s vocals is something else. Take ‘Shinning Dog ft. Boog Brown’ and ‘Deja Vu ft. Adeline’ – two completely different songs, one after another, that almost lend themselves to different categories. Boog Brown’s syncopation is smooth and unwavering while weaving us into a hip hop rhythmic slumber. ‘Deja Vu ft Adeline’, on the other hand sweeps us back in time, with distorted and discomforting tones that echo throughout the LP.

‘The Shadow Of Their Suns’ is an allegory for the different kind of powers that control our world. I’ve always kept this image in mind of the 99% who live in the shadow of these artificial lights,  segregation, politics and mass-media. From a musical point of view, I really wanted to give more space to instrumental arrangements and my own storytelling around this topic. I’m not a lesson-giver but nothing is really neutral, we live in a sick world and music can be food for thought.”– Wax Tailor provides some insight on the album.

Cadet Carter, a band known for their indie-rock stylings that keep fans intrigued, have released the music video for their latest single, ‘The Best Part’. Both the single and the video were released today via 8 Ohm Records. The video was directed by Bastian Scholl, who uses the chance to explore childhood memories and nostalgia.

“I am so happy Cadet Carter has asked me to work with them on their new video. The song is probably the most optimistic thing that came out this year and I wanted to give the video a melancholic but still positive spin. I can not wait for everybody to listen to the song and watch the video!”Bastian Scholl tells us about the joys of working on the video.

The band have been compared to the likes of Blink 182, Knuckle Puck and Biffy Clyro and the comparisons stand true, as the soaring guitar riffs and spirited vocals take centre stage. The final impression of childhood play times resulting in long-lasting is the positive reinforcement we were needing to end the year on.

Snowk’s ‘Under The Moon ft. J.Lamotta Suzume’ has just been released via Namy& Records and Warner Japan. The single will dance its way into your heart with Tel Aviv-born, Berlin-based singer J.Lamotta Suzume‘s powerful vocals standing out.

Stream / Download ‘Under The Moon ft. J.Lamotta Suzume’

Speaking of the single, J.Lamotta Suzume tells us, “Last summer, I found myself working mainly on projects with people from Japan, and the collaboration with Snowk was one of them. When I first heard his beat, my feet started tapping on the floor. I started singing some ideas over it, and everything came together. The lyrics came relatively quickly, the melodies were flowing out, and I was dancing. It’s easy to collaborate with such freedom. Snowk and I never met in person, but we managed to get things done from far away and with mutual trust.” 

The duo could be considered “Kitsuné protégé” as they have had several releases with the label, contributing to their tidy count of over 2 million plays across streaming platforms.
