Music Monday: Arlene Zelina, KOAN Sound, Tiffany Young, Above & Beyond, Thomas Gold, and Axwell

Check out Australian singer/songwriter and famed YouTube sensation Arlene Zelina and her new single, “Dream Of Me,” as premiered on LADYGUNN. The track is a new direction for Zelina. She has not abandoned her blend of pop, hip-hop, and R&B, but her matured sound dabbles in urban pop with soulful undertones.

A career not limited to her online presence, her accomplishments include performances at many of the most prestigious events in the industry: Google’s Big Tent event, Youtube Launches, and live performances of her original songs at venues worldwide. She has also made appearances on several television shows including Australia’s hit TV talk show, “The Morning Show.” She was recently flown to Austria for the Eurovision Song Contest as the Australian correspondent.

 

KOAN Sound is offering fans another taste of their upcoming album with their new single “Chilli Daddy.” With hints of melodic drum and bass, the track is glitchy bass music at its finest, which the duo is so fondly known for.

Polychrome is a highly listenable, versatile album; the result of maturation and personal growth with great artistic bloodlines drawn from their native Bristol, UK. Like the legends to come before them – Massive Attack, Portishead and Reprazent (the list goes on) – KOAN Sound have delivered an album that brings electronic music to new horizons. Pop on your headphones and get lost in sound.

 

Pop phenomena, Tiffany Young, announces the release of her Christmas single “Peppermint,” out today. Tiffany took her love for all things Christmas and transformed that into a gift for her fans with this release.

Tiffany has no plan on stopping this momentum any time soon; with her EP slated for release early next year and eight-date 2019 “Lips On Lips” North American Mini Showcase Tour. Kicking off March 3, 2019; Tiffany will be bringing her charismatic performances and smooth vocals to the states where she will be performing her highly talked about singles “Teach You” and “Over My Skin.”

 

Above & Beyond’s first original collaboration single since 2010 (for those playing at home, that was ‘Anphonic’ with Kyau & Albert) sees the production powerhouse of Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki link up with prolific San Franciscan, Spencer Brown.

‘Long Way From Home’ featuring the vocals of RBBTS (Anne Kalstrup & Hendrik Burkhard) is a gentle, melancholic wave of undulating melodies, underpinned by the quartet’s rounded, dancefloor-ready sound. Debuted at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy 300 celebrations in Hong Kong, the song considers the experience of loneliness that besets many touring artists. Aptly, the first sketch of the track was laid down by Paavo and Spencer in a Melbourne hotel room – a very, very long way from home.

 

Thomas Gold returns to Armada with “Real Love,” a single which blends the best of pop and dance into a delicious crossover cut meant for greatness. Featuring Graham Candy, “Real Love” is the perfect light-hearted love anthem which Thomas certainly has a knack for. This single follows his other recent Armada hits including “Begin Again” and “Orinoco” featuring Corey James.

Thomas Gold has had a very successful 2018 having recently shown the masses at Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, Coachella and EDC Las Vegas who’s boss, the pop-dance Svengali accumulated over 50 million streams on Spotify alone with the global smash hit “Magic,” and recently toured through the US and Asia.

 

5-time Grammy-nominated artist and modern house music icon, Axwell, unleashes his new track ‘Nobody Else’ via Axtone and Ultra Music, following its radio premiere on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show last week. Awarded the Hottest Record in the World accolade by Mac, and receiving spins from Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, ‘Nobody Else’ is a return to Axwell’s roots and shows his innate feel for the dancefloor is alive and well.

His work with Swedish House Mafia and, in recent years, as part of Axwell /\ Ingrosso, has seen him ascend from the Swedish underground to momentous stadium and festival headline slots worldwide, including Madison Square Garden – which sold out in nine minutes – and California’s Coachella. His desire to continually create modern house, dancefloor-filling music is insatiable, hence the release of solo track ‘Nobody Else’ amidst some of the biggest Swedish House Mafia news ever. Never one to do things by half, Axwell is set to reunite with Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso for new shows in Sweden, Mexico City and a headline slot at Creamfields.
