MADDEE – Lost

“Lost” is the perfect frame for Canadian singer MADDEE’s potent alto. Mixed to a of the moment blend of late night dance music and R&B, the Toronto-based MADDEE’s big voice and smart melodic choices drive “Lost” as the lead of a very listenable track that we are digging a lot so listen.

Premiere: Desert Moons – Deep Water

“Deep Water” is new from talented Aussies Desert Moons. The twosome of singer Jake Dobson and brother Simon Dobson, “Deep Water” follows on from strong debut track “Rough Trade” and traffics in a drum machine-led sound of cinematic string sweeps and good dark pop melodics.

Frontman Jake Dobson describes “Deep Water”, “‘Deep Water’ is a metaphor for feeling outside your comfort zone. Just like deep ocean waters, the idea of being in uncharted territory can be a confronting concept. At times in my life, I’ve had no choice but to face my demons head on, however ended up in a more advantageous position by addressing these challenges. It’s helped define my character and realise that fear is only a delusion created by the mind”.

Desert Moons will perform their first live show tomorrow night (technically tonight in AUS) (9/29) at Rare Finds #33 held at Oxford Art Factory’s Gallery Bar in Sydney. Enjoy the B3SCI Premiere of “Deep Water” from Desert Moons below.

If you’re looking for a fun, euphoric dance track to fuel this weekends adventures, you’re in the right place.

San Holo – I Still See Your Face

San Holo delivers his signature sound in his newest track entitled, “I Still See Your Face.” The sweet melody of this track has stayed stuck in my head for a few days. It’s emotional, fun, and quirky all at the same time. Check out this track, and catch him in your city during his upcoming world tour.

Premiere: Cautious Clay – Cold War

We love this song! “Cold War” new from Cautious Clay blends a diverse melange of styles into a remarkably accessible and listenable pop song (this song could be a hit on pop radio right now) that we can’t stop spinning. Born and raised in our hometown of Cleveland and now relocated to Brooklyn, Cautious Clay is the project of musician Josh Karpeh. Josh describes the track, “A lot of times, love for someone begets patience and/or complacency, but not the other way around,” he reflects. “That’s why catching feelings is simultaneously uplifting and disruptive to personal identity for many people.” Stream the B3SCI Premiere of “Cold War” from Cautious Clay below.
