Top 5 Music Discoveries of 2013 by Violet Skies
Up and coming singer/songwriter Violet Skies has kindly put together a piece for us, on her Top 5 music discoveries of 2013. Humble as ever, she has not mentioned her own material in the article, but it would be remiss of us not to give her a proper shout out – follow Violet Skies on Twitter, but not before you check out her list.
Ben Khan – Eden
Can we just have a moment of appreciated for the guitar riff in this track? Also the elephant scream shouldn’t work – but it does. Genius Ben Khan, genius.
Jetta – Start a Riot
Liverpudlian Jetta had me sitting right up when I heard this track. It’s brilliant – I saw her live in London this summer and she’s just as brilliant live with a stripped back band. Consider her riot officially started.
Mapei – Don’t Wait
I dance to this in the shower. Sure sign of a good song I believe? Her riffs are so damn catchy – pop magic Miss Mapei.
TCTS – Over
Vocalled by the very lovely Holly Partridge (who also knows a mean Turkish restaurant when she sees one), TCTS is someone I’ve worked with and for good reason – he’s great at what he does. I defy you to not hum this tune non stop once you’ve heard it.
Axel Kacoutie – White Noise Remix Feat MNEK
My good friend, partner in crime and fellow musical geek – Axel turns everything he touches to gold. Axel knows exactly how to make you sit up and listen, without pushing it in your face. Understated brilliance I reckon.
