New Single: Chasing Kurt – From The Inside [Official Video] (2013/04/19)

:: Absolutely lovin’ this one! Can picture people dancing in the sun when I’m listening…

Chasing Kurt are Pascal Blanché, Wojtek Kutschke and Lukas Poloczek [vocals]. The electro-pop trio – two thirds being Polish and one third German – is based in the small town of Giessen. The guys found together when Kutschke overheard Poloczek’s singing in a bar and invited him to feature on tracks he were producing with Blanché. Chasing Kurt have released five EP’s to date, and the new single From The Inside finally is the first taste of the band’s upcoming same-titled debut full-length. While the record will drop in June, the single already was released with the ‘From The Inside’ EP on April 19, 2013 via Suol Music. It includes two remixes of the song, one of them can be checked out below. The visually incredible music video is directed by the Berlin-based creative design and film company Wolf & Lamm. I’d describe it as minimalistic retro-style, but you can make up your own mind by watching the vid above.

New EP: Patrick James – All About To Change (2013/04/26) [Full Stream]

:: Five songs to fill a whole day and to never getting tired of…

It has taken a while for this EP’s creation: the title track dropped as single eight months ago – on September 01, 2012 – followed by Brighter Lights  in November. By the end of year Patrick James announced the upcoming EP release, and not it’s finally here. in March and April, Patrick played ten shows across Australia on occasion of the EP launch, where the lucky ones already could buy physical copies. On April 26, 2013 the ‘All About To Change’ EP became finally available worldwide at all good digital retailers. All songs are carefully self-produced and self-released, and you should make sure to get your own copy, I’m pretty sure you folks will like as much as I do. Every song can stand alone for itself, and although I particularly like Golden Sun and Burn Away, I’d recommend you make up your own mind. All five songs are streaming below via Patrick’s Youtube. Just click on the playlist button…
