Music Monday: Early James, REXY*, Futuristic Polar Bears, Seven Lions, Ibranovski, and shYbeast

Early James shares the Tim Hardiman directed music video for “High Horse,” his latest song off Singing for My Supper (Easy Eye Sound/ Nonesuch Records, 3/13), via Rolling Stone Country, which say of the song “James, whose voice has a similar pockmarked, raspy quality and jazzy inflection to early Tom Waits, half laughs and half moans about the transformation he’s undergoing.” James, the Alabama native and latest signing to Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound roster, reveals: “The song is a slightly comedic and regretful retrospective on how your childhood goes by so quickly and time changes your wants, needs, and habits.”

On the heels of his tour opening for The Marcus King Band, Early James has confirmed a support tour of Canada with The Black Keys. He has previously announced dates with The Lone Bellow and Shovels & Rope throughout the United States. Tickets and more information for all dates are available here.

 

Like most artists scheduled to release music during the Covid-19 pandemic, Bahamian artist & songwriter, REXY* had thoughts about whether it was still the right time. After surviving Hurricane Dorian which devastated the northern islands of The Bahamas, she knows a thing or two about pushing forward.

Thankfully, she’s ok and happy to release her new single “How You Feel”. “With so much uncertainty & anxiety, people’s desire to dance, sing, and share their creativity with the world is evident in the thousands of people who have been partying virtually and posting their version of dance challenges.” Check out the video below.

 

Futuristic Polar Bears’ brand new, vocal house single “Better Than This” has been released on Nicky Romero’s label. It’s a perfect follow-up to their previous “You & Me” from May last year (also on Protocol), which received support from BBC Radio 1. Futuristic Polar Bears undoubtedly have a knack for making music that is both – radio and club-friendly.

 

Seven Lions, the king of melodic dubstep, is back with his first solo single in over a year and a half, dating back to “Start Again” in 2018. Featuring the heavenly vocals of Tyler Graves, “Only Now” includes the intricate production, euphoric songwriting and massive sound design that fans can only come to expect from the multi-faceted producer.

 

Enticing hooks, playful melodies, and percussive bass house create a coalition of sound on Ibranovski‘s fiery Dim Mak debut “Mi Eye.”

Between then and now, Ibranovski prominently displayed this new sound across six volumes of Ghetto Mainstream EPs on labels including Tchami’s Confession imprint, Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS, and Spinnin’. The Dutchman’s signature sound and techniques have helped establish him as one of the most influential new beatmakers in recent years. “Mi Eye” arrives following a phenomenal 2019, which saw Ibranovski release “Omega” alongside Tchami, as well as have his remix of Valentino Khan’s “Better” included on Khan’s House Party (Remixes) EP.

 

shYbeast continues to forge his solo path in electronic music with new single “Will Your Heart Have Room.” Having seen massive success as the frontman of electronic rock band “I See Stars”, Devin Oliver’s new shYbeast single continues to merge his rock-style vocals with his powerful dance productions, creating a soul-stirring indie-infused dance track.

“Will Your Heart Have Room” features vocals from Oliver, meshed with those of a mysterious, yet familiar, female vocalist. The sultry vocals from the two artists are beautifully blended with a soft electronic melody, showcasing Oliver’s penchant for dance productions in addition to his electronic rock expertise.
