Pharrell Williams is back, featuring vocals on the new single “Blast Off” from French ‘Kind of Darkness’ Gesaffelstein. The brooding metallic loop is brightened by the vocals from Pharrell, turning the gritty tune into some kind of new school disco.
Marshmello has released a new single “Here With Me” featuring CHVRCHES vocalist Lauren Mayberry. The EDM-pop crossover isn’t a particularly ground-breaking song for either artist, but its simplicity lets Lauren’s voice shine through brilliantly. Supported by a light guitar melody and some understated drums, the song remains catchy all the way through.
M83 have released a new song “Karl” from their soundtrack for the salacious slasher film Knife + Heart, directed by Yann Gonzalez, the brother of M83 frontman Anthony Gonzalez. The soundtrack also includes original M83 member Nicolas Fromageau, his first contribution since the band’s sophomore studio release Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts in 2003.
