After dropping his self-directed video for his catchy single “Make It Easy” just a few days ago, Cut Copy’s bassist is already back with his brilliant second single from his upcoming debut album “Turns”. Entitled “Friends Of Mine”, it finds Ben Browning delivering a disco-infused pop tune full of bright synth melodies, upbeat energy and sun-soaked vibes that’s totally irresistible. It only takes one listen to get it stuck in your head. Needless to say, it’s already on repeat. Roll on summer!

Back in March, Antony & Cleopatra, the duo of London singer Anita Blay (formerly CocknBullKid) and Alexander Burnett (of Australian indie pop-rockers Sparkadia), dropped their much played debut single “Sirens”. Now, they’re back with a new single called “Take Me” and it’s an other quality slice of forward-thinking house that’s definitely worth a few spins. In their own words: “Take Me exists in the liminal space between remix and original, between 90s and future, between bass and rave. We draw heavily on the traditions of UK dance music, and this track is at its heart a shout out to all of our favourite elements.”

The single “Take Me” is out now digitally via Vitalic Noise. It comes backed with remixes by Pat Lok and Option4. Buy it here.
