ICONA POP
ICONA POP
Autumn of 2011, Icona Pop moved from Stockholm to London, and with an album ready to go the tunes are in no short supply. Icona Pop says: "We like galloping drums, and synthesisers, but we still like the classical pop melodies. And that's 'what we are'. We don't have to decide, because there's no decision to be made. We just have to do exactly what we want."

In the intervening years they've working with The Knocks (voted one of NME's hottest production outfits of the hour), Patrik Berger (Robyn), Elof Loelv (Niki & The Dove), Fredrik Berger (The Good Natured) and Style of Eye, as well as sessions with UK producers like Starsmith (Kylie, Ellie Goulding) and Burns. Their Neon Gold-released double a-side single 'Manners' / 'Top Rated' prompted journals like NME and The Guardian say things along the lines of "effortlessly cool" and "all the makings of a 24-carat pop hit", and the duo have perfected their live show, too – that first performance back in 2009 went rather well, all things considered, while their first London gig was impressive enough to bag them a management deal with Artist Company TEN, the team behind Niki & The Dove and Erik Hassle.
K.FLAY
K.FLAY
K.Flay is a prolific indie hip-hop artist currently based in Brooklyn. She's an alumni of Stanford who double majored in psychology and sociology and found she had a knack for hip-hop while she was there. After releasing her last album with RCA Records, K.Flay has taken her career into her own hands, DIY style, and is self-releasing her strongest album to date, ?Life As A Dog?, with the help of fans via a Pledge Music campaign (which raised money for the record in a few days). She'll also be braving the heat on this summer's Vans Warped Tour.

"One of hip hop's most promising young female stars." --ELLE Magazine

"If you like hypnotic, one-of-a-kind riffs paired with free and easy rhymes, then you'll LOVE this." --Perez Hilton

"Set to a hypnotic backdrop, the 28-year-old rapper rattles off a chilling narrative that highlights her creative streak." --COMPLEX Magazine
THE ORWELLS
THE ORWELLS
The ORWELLS are made up of five seventeen year olds from Chicago, Illinois. They play rock n roll music. Their names are Mario, Grant, Henry, Dominick and Matt. They write songs -- scratch that, primitive teenage battle cries -- about girls and America and being suspended from high school. Although one might categorize The Orwell's distinct brand of the blues as garage or punk, they would be wrong. The Orwells sound comes from a deeper, different place. A place both long forgotten and also timeless. Their first LP, "Remember When" comes out this summer on Autumn Tone Records. Be the first on your block to snatch it up.
