LISTEN: Tiece – ‘Nowhere, Now Here’ (Tiiva Remix)

A beguiling soundscape that celebrates the joy of new found infatuation, London-based artist Tiece has shared the Tiiva remix of her track ‘Nowhere, Now Here’. The pair were introduced to each other during the first lockdown of 2020 and have worked together to create this beautiful offering which enraptures the senses with its ear-melting vocals and atmospheric beats.

“This song has gone from a remix to a song in it’s own right!” Tiece explains. “It’s kind of about the moment between being sane and being in love, so this song is like the sensation of falling into the madness of romance with all its unanswerable questions and swells of towering feelings. This remix is flowing, moving and feels very alive to me.” Tiiva has reflected Tiece’s emotional energy through their use of sultry electronics and hazy beats, allowing listeners to fall in love with Tiece’s soft, intoxicating vocals.

“When Tiiva sent me the first draft of their remix I had tingles!” Tiece continues. “This reimagining of my song has inspired ideas for more new music. I love working with Tiiva and I’m very excited to share what we create together. I’m so thrilled to have been able to find each other AND work remotely together despite all the madness of lockdown! It feels so good to be making music, seeing progress, enjoying the process and making friends.”

Producer Tiiva is equally as thrilled about working with Tiece too. Having taken a “deep dive” into the artist’s music, they’ve subtly revealed more of the emotional layers in the original recording and we can’t wait to hear future collaborations from the pair.

Tiece (who is also one half of Girlhood) and Tiiva also contributed tracks to Despicable Zee’s Atigheh Reimagined EP in 2020, which you can check out here.

Track Of The Day: Nuala Honan – ‘Day To Day’ (Cephas Teom Remix)

With an immersive groove that hits with the comfort of a warm summer night stroll, Nuala Honan’s ‘Day To Day’ is a dreamy electronic progression filled with intricacy and smoothness. As the second release from a set of new remixes adapted from Nuala Honan’s hailed 2020 album Doubt & Reckoning, ‘Day To Day’ is a delicately enhanced tune at the hands of Cephas Teom.

With a new sonic palette to draw from and plenty of musicality to work with in Honan’s original track, Cephas Teom transforms ‘Day To Day’ into its second hypnotic life. Speaking through the language of MIDI, digital voices meet sophisticated jazzy tendencies in an array of grooves that intertwine with one another in the layered mix. Percussion is the catchy glue of ‘Day To Day’ and homogenises with the mellow MIDI keys only when it feels so right. Synth pads and deep bass create a grounded base that is elegantly rich in a fluid tone that expands for miles.

Floating vocals and simple melodies make Nuala Honan’s electronic articulation carry an electro-pop disposition to it. There is something accessible about Honan’s writing paired with Teom’s coding that is easy for new ears to latch onto, a warmth among the cold.

With her cathartic storytelling that steeps in solitude, Honan’s songwriting shares a welcome relatability. ‘Day To Day (Cephas Teom Remix)’ is a moment of relaxation hosted by gentle instruments that turn to liquid in sequence with the soothing tones of Honan’s exquisite vocals.

PREMIERE: Pinlight – ‘Grow Slow’

Based in Edinburgh, hearing-impaired songwriter Jenny Laahs, aka Pinlight, creates electro-driven retro-tinged soundscapes, all produced in mono to reflect her hearing loss. Following 2019’s debut album, she has now shared an uptempo brand new single.

With ’80s-infused synth-driven hooks, ‘Grow Slow’ flows with an uplifting twinkling energy and Laahs’ luscious honey-sweet vocals. With shades of the likes of Christine and the Queens, it offers a glitchy, whirring soundscape driven by an infectious shimmering zest. A refreshingly uptempo slice of sunny alt-pop, it’s the perfect danceable accompaniment to a solo lockdown living room rave. Of the track, Jenny explains:

I wrote Grow Slow in 2018. I had written the hook – the “I’ve been waiting and waiting” line – several years prior but didn’t do anything with it, so it lay forgotten in an old songwriting notebook. When I came across it again the melody was still really fresh in my mind so I figured it was catchy enough to write a song around. I didn’t really connect with the “waiting” idea when I first wrote the hook, which is probably why it was left dormant for so long, but at that point in 2018, I had begun consciously trying to slow down my pace in general, taking things as they come and not worrying so much about whether things were right straight away. So the rest of the lyrics just came from ruminating more on that theme.

 ‘Grow Slow’, along with a Yoko Pwno remix, is out this Friday, 27th November. Listen for the first time now:

PREMIERE: Yumi And The Weather – ‘What Will Become Of The Wishing Well’ (Inwards Remix)

With acclaim from the likes of John Kennedy and BBC 6Music’s Nemone, Brighton based vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Yumi And The Weather (aka Ruby Taylor) has now shared a fresh remix of her latest single ‘What Will Become Of The Wishing Well‘. Re-imagined by label-mate and rising Worcestershire producer INWARDS (aka Kristian Shelley), it’s the first single to be taken from Yumi And The Weather’s upcoming new EP, set for release at the beginning of next month. 

Maintaining the soaring rich vocals and twinkling uptempo vibes of the original, INWARDS’ remix enhances the already present glitchy beats of the track and creates a whirring, electro-fused soundscape, replicating the original instrumental parts with electronics. Propelled by a gritty, driving energy and sweeping, reverb-strewn splendour, this latest rendition of ‘What Will Become Of The Wishing Well’ is a truly captivating and instantly uplifting offering, reminiscent of the dreamy majesty of the likes of The Postal Service.

Listen to INWARDS’ remix of Yumi And The Weather’s ‘What Will Become Of The Wishing Well’ now, and read our interview with Ruby Taylor about the track and her inspirations behind it below.


Hi Ruby, welcome to Get In Her Ears! Can you tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?
Hello! I am a musician/songwriter/producer based in Brighton and I make music under the name Yumi And The Weather.

How did you initially decide to start creating music?
I suppose it was a natural process as I started playing guitar and writing songs so it just came about from that, so wouldn’t say it was a decision… I suppose it was more of an experiment! Some guitarists just stick to guitar, but I started writing songs and taught myself how to sing through doing that, and I am so glad I tried it out!

Your single ‘What Will Become Of The Wishing Well’ is out now – can you tell us what it’s all about?
It was written about the misinformation and lies from the government around COVID and how we as humans are trying to keep our heads above water at this very uncertain time. The title comes from the idea that we are heading in to a cashless society, so it made me think about coins and how we have always used them for making wishes in the wishing well.

And it’s now been remixed by INWARDS – how did this collaboration come about?
I’ve known Kris for a couple of years before signing to Small Pond. We met at Nozstock festival a few years back as Yumi were playing and our radio plugger introduced us, and I listened to his music on the way home and it was so sick. I’ve always been a massive fan of his music so I was so happy when he said he wanted to remix this song.

We love the dreamy melodies and soaring vocals of your songs, but who would you say are your main musical influences?
Oh wow such a hard question… My main influences have changed over the years from starting the project, but I suppose to name a few for this EP would be: Mamman Sani, Secret Service, Alvvays, Dire Straits and The Cure.

Of course, no one’s going to see live music right now, but – in more ‘normal’ times – how is your local music scene? Do you go to see lots of live music?
My local music scene is incredible and I miss it so much. I was trying to go to a gig a week minimum before lockdown, and I can’t wait to get out again. Live music is something you just can’t beat and all this virtual gig stuff I know people are trying but it doesn’t cut it for me. Nothing beats being in a room with people losing themselves and being immersed in sound waves that are being created right in front of you.

And what can fans expect from your live shows?
Me and my live band being there in person, and trying to imitate the recordings – ha ha! Yeah, nothing fancy, just maybe that we are wearing clean clothes.

How do you feel the music industry is for new artists at the moment – would you say it’s difficult to get noticed?
As it’s very much a DIY ethos these days, you can’t just be a musician anymore – you kind of have to learn a bit about marketing and promotion etc. So, it’s a shame really because you would just want to spend most of your time writing and being expressive. So, it’s not difficult to get noticed, it’s more difficult to know how to get noticed, if you want to get noticed. But, ultimately, it’s being in the right place at the right time, because you meet people along the way and you don’t realise how people can have an effect until further down the line.

Finally, as we’re a new music focused site, are there any other new/upcoming bands or artists you’d recommend we check out?
At the moment I can’t stop telling people about a band called Actors. They released an album in 2019 and it’s fantastic. New/upcoming bands-wise I think keep an ear out for Club Kuru (UK), Oslo Parks (UK), Clementine Dream (FR), and SONS (BE).

Huge thanks to Ruby for answering our questions!
