3. August 2021

Since making her debut in 2017, Lisa Pac has amassed several million Spotify streams with just a string of singles like “Helium” and “Cool,” establishing the kind of pop she’s been known for ever since: a fresh, international sound with a slightly dirty edge, combined with authentic, accessible lyrics and her playful, instantly recognizable voice.
Now signed to Warner Music, the singer, songwriter, producer and graduate of London’s Institute Of Contemporary Music Performance is now set to take the next leap: on September 10, her debut EP “What If..?!” will be released with a total of six songs, including the singles “Boring” and “Shoutout”, which have been out since March. This is something to celebrate in the best way possible: live and loud!

Cloud Cloud is a dreamy guitar pop duo from Kiel (DE) and Vienna (AT), which writes songs via E-mail and video chat. Their haunting, minimalistic melodies melt into atmospheric melancholy, capturing the familiar and the far away.

Marten Kafke (also known as a member of the Viennese band KIDS N CATS) and Katja Seifert met at a concert in Kiel in 2019 and have been writing their music separately ever since – between Kiel and Vienna – with the help of e-mail and video chat. They already proved that this works amazingly well with their debut EP ‘What Are My Options?’, which was released on their own label Cloud Cloud Records in 2020.

Their single ‘Love’, which was released back then, has over 900 Spotify playlist placements to date, including the ‘P to the Laylist’ playlist of the befriended band Leoniden or the ‘FM4 Sunny Side Up’ playlist. In June 2020, FM4 also appointed them Soundpark Act of the Month.

4. May 2021

Takeshi’s Cashew (Laut & Luise, Berlin) are a newly formed psych-funk group that explore the boundaries of club culture, world music & 70’s psychedelia. All coming from different musical directions, they create a colorful fusion of their respective genres embedded in a club-like beat framework and elevate their often complex arrangements to a beautiful & danceable potpourri.

During summer 2020 Takeshi’s Cashew recorded their debut album “Humans In A Pool” in their tiny diy-studio in Vienna. This self produced record will take you on a journey into cosmic krautrock, cumbia, afrobeat & disco, which can only be surpassed by one of their live performances…

4. May 2021

Florence Arman is an established singer/songwriter who is now launching her career as a solo artist. She is no stranger to the international pop scene, having collaborated with artists such as Rhys Lewis, The Kooks, Barns Courtney, G-Flip, Crystal Fighters, filous, Harry Hudson, Cro and Lena Meyer-Landrut (to name a few). Now she dedicates herself to her own intimate, yet witty and light-hearted artist project. Based in Austria, the young Brit developed her creative voice with the help of her brother (Sebastian Arman) and internationally successful producer filous. In crafting her 7-track debut EP, Florence’s heart guides not only her romantic, but also her creative choices. She writes all of her songs on her own and works with a close team of producers to finish them. The more of this extensive collection about her experiences is revealed, the more it feels like Florence is a long-lost friend rather than an aspiring pop star.

Early Mobley combines indie rock with influences from jazz, neo-soul and funk on the debut. The songs reflect his unique approach to pop.

“The pseudonym chosen by Konstantin Heidler comes from a Helge Schneider movie, and Schneider is not only a gifted comedian, but first and foremost a gifted musician and just like Earl Mobley a jack-of-all-trades.” – Radio FM4

DownersAndMilk_Press_Pic1_landscape_byManuelGruber_-1200x799.jpg

4. May 2021

Downers & Milk are refuge in music – a darkly radiant comfort zone where stories of failure and moving on, of stray minds and dreamy consciousness are told. The song of the Viennese band illuminate the farthest corners of human existence and accompany on a walk through the darker side of sensations. Carried by two distinctive voices, melancholic arrangements unite with roughness and opposition to atmospheric folk noir.
