Sasha Siem: “See Through (Highasakite Remix)” MP3 Stream
May 04, 2015
Highasakite’s remix of Sasha Siem tune “See Through” takes the lush track in a much more stripped down direction. There’s some delicious drum machine though, which gives the whole affair a dark and twisty vibe. Listen below. You can also see our photos from the pair in concert in Oslo here. Siem’s album Most of the Boys is out now on Partisan.
Los Angeles psych-rockers Talk in Tongues have shared another track from their forthcoming debut album, Alone With a Friend, out May 19 on Fairfax Recordings. "Always All the Time" is chilled out affair, perfect for zoning out on a lazy day. It's the album's penultimate track. Stream it below. Back in February we premiered their song "While Everyone Was Waiting." Also be sure to pick up Under the Radar's current print issue (the one with Tame Impala on the cover) to read an interview with Talk in Tongues, who, by the way, played Under the Radar's official nighttime showcase at SXSW this year.

Britain's Outfit have premiered another new song from their forthcoming sophomore album. "On the Water on the Way" is taken from Slowness, due out June 16th via Memphis Industries.

“2Shy (Warpaint STEEZ Remix)” MP3 Stream
Apr 30, 2015
Shura’s bashful 1980s-tinged single “2Shy” has been remade in Warpaint’s image. The remix features heavy synth-lead percussion, and a bit of dance floor attitude. Listen to the remix below, or revisit the original (with suitably melancholy visuals) here.
Vök’s new video for Circles cut “If I Was” is a collection of black and white eyes. Who knew making eye contact could be this difficult? Musically, it’s what we’ve come to expect from the Icelandic trio—a bit dark, a bit haunting, and very very stylish. (We suddenly don’t miss The Knife QUITE so much.) Check out the clip below. You can also revisit the mixtape the band made for us earlier this year here. Circles is due out May 22.
Jaakko Eino Kalevi’s video for his new single “Deeper Shadows” is a deliciously weird lo-fi romp through the English pseudo-countryside. The retro-chic visuals perfectly match the tune, a chill synth pop song that exudes effortless cool. Check out the Charlotte Rutherford-directed clip below. Kalevi’s self-titled debut full-length streets June 15 on Weird World.
