The

Kali Uchis – Lottery

Introducing Colombian-born, Virginia-bred singer/songwriter ‘Kali Uchis’ with her new single ‘Lottery’ taken from her first studio project ‘Por Vida’.

Fresh off the underground success of the mixtape ‘Drunken Babble’, 2014 has been a life-changing year for the singer that has seen her win both applause and collaborations from the likes of ‘Tyler The Creator’, ‘Diplo’ and ‘Snoop Dogg’. With a voice as silky smooth as the 60’s Golden State aesthetic she resides in, ‘Lottery’ is a gorgeous minimal plea for love that pays homage to both California low-rider subculture and the powerful vocalists of Motown’s ‘Golden Era’.

Be sure to keep this girl on your radar!

Great work ‘Kali Uchis’.

The Five Best Songs Of 2014

Here are New Music Talks picks for the five best songs of 2014, based solely on what I love and what the people listened to most.

In no particular order:

Arkon Fly – Backseat

First discovered ‘Arkon Fly’ earlier this year when the talented duo dropped ‘Through The Fire’ even though that song was hot, ‘Backseat’ blew me away and for that it truly deserves to be in the top five.

Listen to ‘Backseat‘ below

Folded Like Fabric – I Tried

These guys are great!

‘I Tried’ is a strong song with great production and for a debut track ‘Folded Like Fabric’ could do no wrong and that is why ‘I Tried’ is in the top five!.

Listen to ‘I Tried‘ below

Låpsley – Falling Short

Love this girl and think she is one you need to keep on your radar for next year!

‘Låpsley’ enlightened us when she dropped ‘Station’ earlier in the year which really alerted people, but for me ‘Falling Short’ is an absolute goldmine of a track and well and truly deserves to be in the top five.

Listen to ‘Falling Short‘ below

Son Little – Your Love Will Blow Me Away When My Heart Aches

This guy has one of the best voices I have ever heard!

‘Your Love Will Blow Me Away When My Heart Aches’ is an incredible song and the vocal that ‘Son Little’ produces is truly amazing.

Im sure all of you will agree with me that this deserves to be in the top five!

Listen to ‘Your Love Will Blow Me Away When My Heart Aches‘ below

Zella Day – East Of Eden

This was a hard one as ‘Sweet Ophelia’ is a massive track but for me ‘East Of Eden’ just shades it as it is sonically beautiful!.

2015 is going to be a big year for the LA based ‘Zella Day’ if she keeps on giving us singles as great as this year!

Listen to ‘East Of Eden‘ below
