Music Monday: Foals, R3HAB, My Silent Bravery, QUIX, and William Orbit

Foals’ current single ‘Wake Me Up’ presented a pared-back counterpoint to the sheer scale of their triumphant two-part ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ album. Hailed by Jack Saunders as the start of a “brand new era of Foals” ahead of a new studio album in 2022, the single was A-listed at Radio 1 and featured at #12 on NME’s 50 best songs of 2021. 
 
Foals now dig deeper into this evolution in their sound by sharing the track’s new remix courtesy of Gaspard Augé & Victor Le Masne. The duo sparkle the original with luminous house synths and disco-tinged rhythms, providing some opulent French touch vibes. 

For R3HAB’s new single “I Wanna Run Away,” he teamed up with one of the leading African artists – Mr. Eazi, and alt-pop singer/songwriter Wafia. The track is a mix of electronic dance sounds, Afrobeats, and pop music. Check out the lyric video below.

Boston-based Alt-rock project My Silent Bravery announces his poppy, radio-friendly lyric video “The Reason,”  from his new album Bigger, out now. The album includes the sizzling summer release, “Spark Up the Fire”, which charted in the top 20 of the Germany Alternative Charts.

QUIX follows up his summertime Dim Mak single “Make UpYour Mind,” featuring Jaden Michaels, with a unique remix package consisting of three new renditions of his drum & bass track, each showcasing a very different sonic side.

Multiple Grammy-award winning writer, composer, producer, and performer William Orbit is considered a pioneer of electronic music and one of contemporary pop’s most innovative artists. He now returns with a 4-track EP ‘Starbeam’ that was released December 1st via Anjunadeep.

In a career spanning 40 years, his influence is insurmountable. Producing some of pop music’s most seminal records – Madonna’s ‘Ray Of Light’ and ‘MDNA’, Blur’s ‘13’, Robbie Williams’ ‘Rudebox’, Finley Quaye’s ‘Dice’, Pink’s ‘Feel Good Time’ and All Saints’ ‘Testament’ to name a few – he has won 3 Grammy Awards and been nominated a further 5 times, with work on albums by U2, Britney Spears, Beth Orton, Queen, and Michael Jackson.
