Moodboard: Sivu

When things began for Sivu he was working in a call centre. The video for his track, ‘Better Man Than He’, went viral. From that point everything changed. No longer was he reciting from a script surrounded by the drudgery of call centre ‘lolz’, but was in fact inking a …

Guest Playlist: Wild Swim

Cinematic is a word thrown around far too much these days when it comes to describing music. In the case of Oxford’s Wild Swim, however, it feels entirely apt. The five-piece – whose latest single ‘New Dawn‘ is out on Monday via Almanac Recordings – dabble in

On their cover of Bombay Bicycle Club‘s ‘Always Like This‘, Viennese electronic duo HVOB – Her Voice Over Boys – supplant the original’s buoyant basslines and melismatic vocal harmonies, choosing instead to dress the track in sumptuous yet spacious textures and mellifluous beats.
