Tashka - Each Time

Sydney-based singer/songwriter and producer Tashka, who you may remember from her debut single, "Taken" or perhaps as a featured vocalist on Donatachi's track "Gold", both released earlier this year, has just unveiled her much-anticipated follow-up single called "Each Time", which was mixed by Melbourne producer Yeo and mastered by Andrei Eremin, whose credits include Chet Faker, Miami Horror, Japanese Wallpaper and Wafia, just to name a few. Needless to say, Tashka is definitely one to keep a close watch in 2016.

Listen to "Each Time" below.

Premiere via Thump.

Alo Lee - Use Me

Following on from her previous single, "Inside", released earlier this month, up-and-coming Wyoming-born, London-based dark/future R&B artist Alo Lee returns with yet another alluring new offering entitled "Use Me", which once again sees her teaming up with Exmoor Emperor and Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, FKA Twigs & Ellie Goulding) on production duties and serves as the second track to be lifted from her upcoming 3-track EP, Ephemera.

Speaking on the track, Alo says:

"The song is written from my own perspective. The song to me is more about how things can slowly unravel in a relationship. It's less about rejection but more about how two people can completely transform and move away from one another when it once seemed set it stone...

The lyrics were written when I was in one of my lowest times. I actually wrote the lyrics to a much slower and moodier track. Then my producers, Exmoor Emperor took it and flipped created this instrumental with a mood that is in such stark contrast to the lyric that I created and I think that just makes it even more powerful and unique. I love when a track really forces the listener to pay attention to the meaning of the song and I think the dichotomy within 'Use Me' really creates something that makes you pay clear attention to the message I'm trying to deliver.

Listen to "Use Me" below and stay tuned for more new music from Alo Lee coming soon.

Premiere via Notion Magazine.

Halia Jack - Absence of Love

Halia Jack is the somewhat enigmatic new project fronted by London-based singer/songwriter Daisha Ferdinand, who has just recently unveiled her first-ever music video for her song titled "Absence of Love", produced by Baxta and James Rand. Unfortunately that's all the information we have on her at this time, however as Popjustice reported earlier, Halia Jack is currently working on her debut EP, which hopefully will drop sooner than later. In the meantime, watch the video for "Absence of Love" and check out another previously released demo of hers called "When the Night Comes" below.

"Absence of Love" is available now on Bandcamp.

Skyler Cocco - Some Nerve

New York-based singer/songwriter, producer and model Skyler Cocco has just unveiled her new single called "Some Nerve". Co-produced by Cocco herself along with Zach Miller, the song serves as the second single following "Ordinary Life" to lifted from her forthcoming album, Reverie, set for release in early 2016.

Cocco has spent most of her life as a musician. She began making music in 2003, but it wasn't until 2010 that she officially began releasing her music. Originally starting out as a pop artist, Cocco eventually discovered her writing comes to life in a more raw, less commercial setting. Her music explores genres, such as pop and hip hop, but is primarily alternative, citing inspiration from Silversun Pickups, Stone Temple Pilots and Grimes.

Speaking on the track, Skyler says:

"When I write a song, I allow myself to relive a lot of memories in order to pull exact emotions and actions into my writing. It can be pretty unnerving at times, and that feeling of 'why am I thinking about this, stop thinking about this' is something that brought 'Some Nerve' to life. The song is basically an argument with my mind personified. I feel like your own mind and imagination can be your worst enemy at times, so this song is basically a realization of how sick you can make yourself feel and confronting these invasive thoughts."

Listen to both "Some Nerve" and "Ordinary Life" below.

"Some Nerve" is available now on iTunes.

Premiere via PopMatters.
