1883 On Rotation: Loyle Carner, The 1975, Joya Mooi

The latest in new music from Loyle Carner, Low Island, The 1975, Joya Mooi, & more on this week’s 1883 playlist.

On rotation this week is the fiery new single from gifted rapper, songwriter and poet, Loyle Carner. Following on from his critically acclaimed UK Top 3 Album Not Waving, But Drowning, Carner’s new track Hate is a remarkable departure from anything that has come before. There are still the masterful flows and slick production that you come to expect from Loyle but there’s a fury and potency to Loyle’s bars, the likes of which we haven’t seen before. The London-based artist Alex Amor is releasing her new EP The Art Of Letting Go on October 14th. Amor strikes a delicate balance between indie-pop and dreamlike alt-pop, so if that sounds like your sort of thing then you need to check out her new tune Bad Tattoo. Speaking about the song, Amor says it’s  “written about a time when I wanted to forget someone”. Oxford quartet Low Island are gearing up to release their new album Life In Miniature on November 4th. Their first single off the record is entitled Can’t Forget. The song itself is a fantastic blend of electronic-pop elements and art-rock hooks. One of the UK’s best bands, The 1975, are back today with the release of their new single Part Of The Band. It’s taken from their forthcoming fifth studio record Being Funny In A Foreign Language which drops October 14th. The group have always been experimental trailblazers and Part Of The Band certainly shows off a new side to the four-piece. It’s a serene and symphonic tune with heart-on-sleeve lyrics from Healy and gorgeous production. 

Elsewhere in the playlist, you can find the latest release from Joya Mooi. Entitled Roselle, the song boasts lush vocals from Mooi and it’s generally an exquisite slice of R&B. Thematically Roselle pays homage to the roselle hibiscus flower which grows in parts of Africa, Asia, India, Australia and Latin America. Aura is the latest musical effort from LA-based wunderkind producer and singer, Cuco. It’s taken from his upcoming sophomore LP Fantasy Gateway. The song itself is an intoxicating mix of crooning vocals and 60s-esque rhythms. He’s already amassed a huge following online, so if he’s not on your radar already, then he needs to be. Finally, songwriter Tom Chaplin is releasing his anticipated new solo album Midpoint on September 2nd. The album’s first preview is the title track, which has just been unveiled. It’s an emotionally charged and stunning effort from the Keane frontman. Chaplin has also released a short film starring Niamh Cusack to coincide with the single’s release. Go check it out.
