Dezeen Music Project: Phantoms
by K H U S H I

Here's a brand new track by east London musician K H U S H I, set to be the lead track on the singer/songwriter's forthcoming debut EP.

Phantoms is a slow-burning, wistful pop song packed with lush vocal harmonies and delicate keyboard lines, which builds up masterfully to a driving, rhythmic crescendo.

K H U S H I enlisted the in-demand talents of Alt-J's producer Charlie Andrews to record the track, which suggests his short musical career is very much on an upwards trajectory.

You can listen to K H U S H I's debut single Magpie here.

Dezeen Music Project: Mountain
by Only Girl

Only Girl, aka Ellen Murphy, is a London-based singer with a dreamy, distinctly 90s R&B sound.

This track called Mountain combines simple, sparse percussion with lush, soaring vocal harmonies. Comparisons with fellow south-Londoner Jessie Ware immediately spring to mind, which suggests commercial success could be just around the corner for Only Girl.

Dezeen Music Project: Solaris
by Giga Herbs

Here's the latest single taken from New York indie-rockers Giga Herbs' debut album Mad Weird LP. Solaris starts off much more stripped-down than previous tracks we've featured by the band, but it doesn't take long for a nice dose of fuzzy, distorted guitar to kick in.

It's good to know there are still bands out there who know how to make a great-sounding guitar-based pop record.

Dezeen Music Project: Waste Of Time
(remix) by Jungle

This remix of Danish artist 's track Waste Of Time by London producers Jungle brings together two of the most exciting acts to emerge last year, both of which look set for a stellar 2014.

Jungle have toned down the intensity of MØ's original track here, sacrificing the singer's raw energy in favour of a mellow-but-funky groove.

Dezeen Music Project: I Hold by Sivu
featuring Marika Hackman

UK singer-songwriter Sivu, aka James Page, seems to have spent most of 2013 on the verge hitting the big time and is surely set to explode in 2014. Working with in-demand producer Charlie Andrew, the man behind Alt-J's critically acclaimed debut album An Awesome Wave, should certainly help.

Sivu's latest EP, I Lost Myself, was released earlier this month, but he has made this track called I Hold - presumably an off-cut from the official release - available online as a free download.

It features Sivu's typically ethereal vocals, with a guest appearance from singer Marika Hackman, all accompanied by a melancholy blend of pianos, guitars and a dark underlying electronic bass.
