Dezeen Music Project
London band Dead Red Sun’s latest song is called Grecian, soon to be released on a two-track EP. Like the previous track by Dead Red Sun that we featured on Dezeen Music Project, Grecian is a wonderfully noisy, muscular instrumental driven by layers of distorted guitars and crashing drums.
Vienna-based musician and producer Noemi Bolojan has remixed American rock band Cage the Elephant’s track Take It Or Leave It, replacing the jagged guitar of the original song with gentle, swooshing synths and shuffling electronic percussion.
This experimental pop song by London artist Yodashe is very musically ambitious, combing glitchy beats with brash, dissonant vocal harmonies in a free-flowing arrangement. But the key is the variety of catchy melodic hooks, which pop up in unexpected places and keep the track engaging throughout.
Blue Room won't make easy background music, but listen carefully and there's lots to enjoy.
This electronica-tinged track by London producer and singer The Slow Revolt has a wonderfully effortless charm that belies the tight structure and attention to detail evident throughout. Understated and unassuming, the song achieves the feted balancing act of feeling both fresh and familiar at the same time.
Desired Effect is a wistful pop song by Glasgow band Atom Tree. With plucked strings and what sounds like a glockenspiel driving the track, it has a much more analogue feel than 45, the previous Atom Tree track we featured on Dezeen Music Project.
