A dystopian snapshot of the universal unease
Ghostpoets latest album couldn’t feel more prescient and incorporates a myriad of sounds and styles but is anchored by the more alt-rock sonics presented across his last two records. With his keen ear for collaborations, ‘I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep’ features guest vocals from an eclectic mix of artists like Art School Girlfriend, Skinny Girl Diet’s Delilah Holiday, SaraSara and Katie Dove Dixon. Obaro himself describes the 10 tracks as a “snapshot of where we’re at as a society”.

Esja is her debut solo album and for Rani it is her first, real, personal statement as an artist. “No hiding behind the “collaborations” or “projects” anymore. For the very first time, finally – just me, as I am”.
Hearts HeartsFormed in Vienny by David Österle, Daniel Hämmerle, Johannes Mandorfer and Peter Paul Aufreita in 2012, Hearts Hearts released their first album ‘Young’ in 2015 and quickly gained a lot of attention as well as positive reviews.

Anything but predictable
The Austrian Duo keep riding their wave of success while touring through Europe and playing the big festival stages. After their debut album ‘Spanish Disco’ and the release of ‘Butter’ the two-time Amadeus Music Awards winning electro-pop band Leyya seems to be unstoppable. With a touch of India as well as Loverpool’s beat in the late 60’s, their colorful new single ‘Zoo’ has the rather melancholic and dark sounds all but forgotten. Leyya do what they wand and it sounds good.
Manu DelagoWorld renowned handpan player and composer Manu Delago returns with a brand-new album and his biggest live show to date. Circadian (out 13th September via One Little Indian Records) takes the listener through the cycle of sleep stages, emulating REM, light sleep, deep sleep and an abrupt awakening. Delago was inspired by the concept of individual circadian rhythms, due in part to his own lack of sleep as an international touring musician with Björk, Olafur Arnalds, Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar.
