They’ve returned with a new, fiercer fire with Painted, the lead single from their forthcoming sophomore album due out just in time for Splendour In The Grass. From the opening thundering drum to the fading guitar at the end, Painted has me hook, line and sinker.
The Shadow Electric played host to a line up of exceptional talent last Friday night; the bearishly divine Howqua; the smooth and sublime Jesse Davidson; and holy shit, the jaw-dropping/tatt-loving SOAK. Total treats on a rainy April night in an old convent; hell yes, that’s what we got. Continue reading “FRONT ROW | SOAK, JESSE DAVIDSON, HOWQUA” »
Henry Laufer, also known as Shlohmo, is a LA-based producer and beatmaker who’s just released his new LP Dark Red. Known for his edits on tracks by Flume and Drake, Shlohmo has also collabed with Chicago act Jeremih, which looked liked it was going to turn into an EP until Jeremih’s label decided they wanted to pull the plug… eventually it did come out!
