New Music From The Inbox: Secret Colours, Mister Suit, Lou Doillon, My Sister Ocean, & Emilia

By Juliette Jagger

Artist: Secret Colours “Blackhole”
Album: Peach

Chicago’s Secret Colours captures the eerie darkness of UK post-punk, threads it to 90’s Britpop, and ties it off while you sink in and completely checkout.

Sounds like: There’s something happening here and this song sold me. I’ll definitely be keepin’ an eye on this band.

Link/Listen/Watch:  STREAM IT HERE.

Artist: Mister Suit’s “Can’t Be Found”
There is something fresh and offbeat about this one from Mister Suit – real raspy vocals, brash guitars, a spacey little synth hook, and to the point delivery.

Sounds like:  Looking for you.

Link/Listen/Watch: STREAM IT HERE.

Artist: Lou Doillon “ ICU”
Doillon possess one of those bold voices that doesn’t quite look like it’s meant to come out of such a beautiful, slender frame. 

Sounds like: Patty Smith.

Link/Listen/Watch: WATCH IT HERE.

Artist: My Sister Ocean Ft. Jay Sparrow “Mountain Hound”
This song is absolutely made by the chorus, and sometimes that’s all you need. Granted it’s one chord shy of being cock rock but I’ll take it.

Sounds like: Woo hoo.


Artist: Emilia “Closer All The Time”
Flying Colours
There is something playful and Nora Jones-esc about Emilia’s vocals but she punches them up with a Jason Mraz flavoured island appeal.

Sounds like: Bubbly breezy pop.

    Emilia, in my humble opinion, is one of the most talented young new singer/songwriters to come along in some time. The debut EP "Flying Colors", provides only a glimpse of the talent that lies within, and the first single "Closer All The Time", is a pop gem. Already looking forward to the full length CD planned for 2014.
