Hozier is an irish musician who has released 2 EPs in the last 2 years (Take Me To Church 2013 & From Eden 2014) along with his self titled album which he played to the world at Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show yesterday. Hazier has a bluesy sound accompanied by soulful lyrics spiced with a bit of Rock n Roll. The versatility of his music demonstrates his talent and capacity to interpret a powerful song such as “Take Me To Church” and an acoustic, nostalgic song like “Cherry Wine”. Some artists you just can´t explain how, why or which ways they touch you…but he does that to me. Every note awakens fibres in my body that make me unable to get enough of him.
I hope you enjoy him as much as i do.
Telépopmusik is a french electronic trio who has managed to conquer the house music scene. They´ve relased 2 albums and 2 EPs, I believe their first album (Genetic World) is outstanding and is definitely my favorite one. This album sounds to me almost as electronic nature, the elements Telépopmusik use are organic, elegant and unexpected just as nature itself, the perfectly timed beats almost sound like raindrops. Some songs such as “Love Can Damage Your Heart” have classical music in the background accompanying hardcore electronica, this fusion turns out to be addictive.
Recommended songs: “Breathe”, “Love Can Damage Your Heart” and “Close”
Låpsley is a project based in Liverpool, there´s not much info about her but i can say this: I LOVE HER. Her music is super detailed, nostalgic and definitely hypnotic. The magic dark yet sweet electro she works with has captivated me, every song surprises me with new elements and beats.
I found a interview which give us a better insight of who Låpsley is:
Phantogram is an american duo (Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel ) formed in 2007. Their music is a fusion of electronica, rock, trip-hop and shoegaze, their songs are fun, danceable and mostly upbeat.They have two studio albums, one which they released this year: Voices. The duo met in high school and their chemistry is clear in the precision and congruence of their music.
Phantogram is perfect to start the weekend: perfect to dance to, make out to, and drink to.
Breathtaking project that everyone should know about.

Matt Corby is an Australian singer songwriter who´s scratchy and powerful voice has conquered my ears.
This talented musician has a side project (not sure if i should call it that) called “Secret Gardens” . This project began with Matt asking his fans where they would want to see him play (outside regular venues). Most fans answered they´d want sessions in theur own garden an backyards and Matt began touring Australia playing intimate sessions in this odd places. The success has been such that The Secret Garden Shows have spread across the world to gardens around the UK and USA.
