LISTEN: LegPuppy – ‘Secret Friend’ (feat. Josefin Öhrn)

A slow-burning, atmospheric new offering; South London band LegPuppy have collaborated with award-winning Swedish musician Josefin Öhrn on their latest track, ‘Secret Friend’. Independently released on Valentine’s Day, the new song is a smoldering four minutes of electro-psych sound.

When LegPuppy first heard Josefin Öhrn + the Liberation’s album Mirage, they described it as “like discovering the Velvet Underground for the first time.” The band instantly knew they wanted to collaborate with Swedish Grammy nominated Öhrn, and ‘Secret Friend’ was the result. Öhrn’s exquisite French accent floats above the band’s moody music, and contrasts well with the accompanying male vocal.

LegPuppy are set the release their new album There’s No Rock Stars later this year, and will be announcing tour, and festival dates in the near future. For now, listen to ‘Secret Friend’ below, and follow LegPuppy on Facebook & Spotify for more updates.

LISTEN: Trentemøller – ‘Try A Little’

Atmospheric synths, catchy beats and entrancing vocals come together to create ‘Try A Little’, the latest track from Danish indie-electronic artist Trentemøller. Featuring Warpaint‘s Jenny Lee Lindberg, the song is a captivating electronic exploration of “inexplicably loving a person who seems incapable of returning that love”.

Accompanied by an equally mesmerizing set of visuals – Produced by Emmy-nominated animator Thomas McMahan & featuring Jenny – ‘Try A Little’ is taken from Trentemøller’s first album in three years, Obverse, which is set for release on 27th September via his own label In My Room. His pre-existing collaborative spirit is celebrated on this record, which features the voices of Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Warpaint’s Jenny Lee Lindberg (jennylee), Lina Tullgren and Lisbet Fritze.

“I have always worked with contrasts in my music and in my sound. It’s in the subtle clashes of feelings and tonal contradictions that I often find pure inspiration,” Trentemøller explains. “Obverse was always going to be about exploring the possibilities in my studio, with no consideration of how it could be performed on a stage, and it was completely liberating.”
