Labyrinth Ear - Urchin

This is gorgeous. I was supposed to be working on my other blog but this track has distracted me with its ghostly loveliness. Labyrinth Ear (What's that all about? Do some interviews and explain yourselves prettily please) are a duo from London and with the new single 'Urchin' remind me of a bewitching blend of Keep Shelly in Athens, Purity Ring and pre - Visions Grimes ... so mahoosive excitement for them then.

Have a listen below, lovely layered beepy spellwork on a resonating bassline that reminds me of something from The Golden Filter's 'Syndromes'. Eyes wide open for more from them.

I dedicate this post to my sister who probably won't like this song but will appreciate the sentiment. Sweetiedarling x

Heard this track first on the brill tumbly

The xx - Chained

It took seeing The xx live to really feel the love for them, their strength is definitely the unusual yet compatible vocals of Romy and Oliver backed by Jamie. This new song 'Chained' is using the same tricks as the likes of  'Islands' and 'Crystalised' from the super successful debut in 2009. More lovely chilled out melancholic tunes to come from the long awaited Coexist.

Jump here to hear Angels which is also gorgeous. Coexist is out September 10.
