This serpent bites hard. Polishing his style in Underground NYC queer scene, finally this Baltimore-born serpentwithfeet is releasing his debut single from Tri Angle with “The Flickering”. Mixing the sensual and poignant natures of R&B with classical elements, it hits you right at the core of your emotions.

Scarier and sexier. Melbourne’s songwriter and our favourite Oscar Key Sung has a new single out and we are very excited about it. In “Hands” Oscar says he wanted to pursue scarier sounds than having a dreamy soundscape and its succeeding. It’s more abrasive, brooding and unexpected, recalling the sounds of likely minded Fade to Mind producers while the singer croons as sexy as ever. Perfect.
Love is poison, Love is antidote, Love is why. Canada’s electronic duo VILLAS has a shocking new video for “Fucking Round On You” from their latest EP Medicine.

It’s NSFW, so watch your back, folks!
