Theophilus London has a new 5-track EP out, entitled Lovers Holiday. It features the track, ‘Why Even Try’. It has a sort of eighties smooth groove to it, which may sound off-putting but is actually pretty wonderful. The heavy yet cool bass is complimented by London’s easy flow, and finished off wonderfully by Sara Quin’s chorus. Quin’s vocals are always light yet powerful, and here they add a little emotional punch to this summery track. Stream the track below, if you like it you can get it for the small price of a tweet here.

I’m starting to buy into the Ellie Goulding hype. Which is still all very peculiar seeing as there are only really two songs doing the rounds (Under the Sheets and Starry Eyed). Starry Eyed has received the remix treatment from so many different bands, producers, random people with access to remix software, that it’s hard to remember which is actually Ellie’s original version! This particular remix however, is VERY enjoyable. It features Brooklyn hip-hop artist Theophilus London, who is receiving a lot of excitable attention himself, and Penguin Prison, a New York producer and artist in his own right. This is the best of all the Starry Eyed remixes I’ve heard (so far, who knows how many more will appear)….enjoy:
