Polish electro outfit We draw A deal with a soft palette of electronica. Their multi-faceted project loops chill wavy sounds and ambient warmth only to mix up their programmed work with live guitars and bass. Their songs also have identifiable parts that are progressed into, rather than ambling on in one repetitive, blissed out circle. Though they’re not above a bit of cooing, most the vocals are clear and crisp, which means you can understand their sometimes sombre lyrics without straining.

The duo, from Wroclaw, have only been around for a year and a half, but already have an EP out and another on the way.

Listen to the Glimpse EP, and hear a track from their forth coming Whirls EP on Soundcloud.

It seems the inevitable meeting of surf rock and hip-hop has been a long time coming, so it’s surprising that 22-year-old Niall Gavin’s Only Real sounds so refreshing. Without taking into consideration his attempts to cross genres, Only Real still writes a better reverby guitar riff than your average faux surf indie band. Instead of fey, slacker verses framing his catchy choruses, Gavin lets hip-hop rhymes flow at a rapid-fire pace and backs them with cooed harmonies, all distinctly flavored by his West London accent. The combination of sunshine and grit creates a kind of psychic dissonance — a little breeziness wafting through a bit of weariness.

Only Real’s EP, Days in the City, was released this month as a download and on 12″ vinyl. He also has a single, “Backseat Kissers,” available as a 7″.
