1883 On Rotation: Dream Wife, Róisín Murphy, Doja Cat
The latest in new music from Dream Wife, Emma Sampson, Róisín Murphy, Doja Cat & more in this week’s 1883 On Rotation playlist.
On rotation this week is the effortlessly cool trio, Dream Wife. Rakel, Alice, and Bella have just dropped their third studio record, Social Lubrication, earlier this month and it’s a much-needed dose of exhilarating punk rock. Make sure to listen to the album track, Hot (Don’t Date A Musician). The band recently penned an on-tour photo diary for 1883 Magazine, keep an eye on the website when that goes live. Rising duo Dolores Forever are back with the sad indie-pop anthem, I Love You But You’re Making Me Sad. It’s a melancholic tune with soaring vocals. The pair originally met at a house party and bonded over their shared love of Mitski, Sharon Van Etten, Stevie Nicks and the Spice Girls. Catch their headline London show on September 27th.
Comprised of vocalist/producer Julian Comeau and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Tirapelli-Jamail, Loveless are proving to be more than just a viral sensation thanks to their new single, I Hope I’m Not Sick. It’s an infectious slice of alt-rock with pristine vocals from Comeau and intense shredding from Tirapelli-Jamail. The pair will be touring the UK this September. Emma Sampson is an emerging singer-songwriter based in Essex and has just revealed her debut single, Rain. If you’re a fan of Phoebe Bridgers or Beabadoobee then you’ll adore Sampson’s first musical offering as it’s a gorgeous mix of indie sonics, story-driven lyricism and dreamy vocals. You can expect to hear more from this talented newcomer in the near future.
Elsewhere in the playlist, the iconic and multifaceted Irish artist Róisín Murphy has announced a new record entitled Hit Parade. The album lands September 8th but Murphy has shared a taster from the LP called Fader. It’s a brilliant concoction of electronic influences, lush vocals and experimental textures. It’s nothing short of mesmerising. To celebrate the album’s launch in autumn, the boundary-pushing artist will be headlining Alexandra Palace in February 2024. Next up is the world-dominating artist, Doja Cat. The Grammy award-winning songwriter is back with the irresistible hip-hop bop, Attention. If the song is anything to go by, the versatile rapper/vocalist is heading into a rap-heavy era and we’re here for it. Finally, following on from garnering two UK top 40 singles, over a million Spotify listeners, and a collective 100 million streams, rapper M24 is back. His new tune Neighbourhood Hero is full of introspective bars and slick production.
