This curious little French electronic duo Zebra Lova unashamedly take bits and bobs from the 80’s. Analogue synths and speak-singing (not rapping!) and turn it enjoyably into quirky, nu-retro styled pop songs.

It’s somewhat a surprise that Cathedrals have turned the tables and flipped from an electronic style to the pop side. The evidence is in with new single “Don’t Act Like A Stranger” that being pop whilst, still very much in an alternative vein really suits them, though.
Polish electronic duo The Dumplings quite fired the curiosity in us when we encountered them at SXSW. Their woozy beats and vibrantly pulsating artistry, stoked our alt-pop fires and left a lasting impression.
