In our Saturday Spotlights, we highlight four of our favorite artists of the week, including three feature.fm artists and one very special guest.
Here are the awesome songs and artists we loved listening to this week:
To The Sea by David Berkeley
David Berkeley is a jack of all trades. This Harvard graduate, who now calls Santa Fe home, has traveled everywhere from the mountains of Corsica to the back roads of Alaska to the crowded street of NYC. His music is a heartfelt blend of folk, rock and classic pop. At times it even suggests ever the slightest influence of hip hop and Brit-Pop. His lyrics always convey a genuine desire to tell beautiful stories and to connect with his audience. On September 25, 2015 David Berkeley released his second book, "The Free Brontosaurus", alongside an accompanying studio album. David truly is a musical poet.
Futureproof by Anikiko
Sydney native Anikiko is a singer-songwriter, producer, and a writer. She prides herself on her genre-bending style that captures electro-pop, folk and trip-hop. This talented lady has performed with some of the world's most internationally acclaimed DJ's. Anikiko's eclectic style has won her numerous songwriting awards and nominations. When she's not busy being a badass in the music scene she also writes for TV and Film. Don't worry we're starting to feel a little insecure too.
Never Gets Old by Penguin Prison (Remix) by Saxton
As the last remaining days of summer slip away from us to make way for autumn, it's nice being able to jam to some great indie dance music. As the cold weather sets in, Saxton's music will keep us dreaming of the summer days past. This Portland native is all about keeping summer on repeat. I think it's safe to say we can all get behind that logic. Be sure to check out his Soundcloud for more blissful summer jams.
Real by Years & Years
Years & Years was formed in London back in 2010. Michael Goldsworth and Emre Turkman met online looking to start a band. Olly Alexander eventually joined the band when Michael and Emre heard him singing in the shower at a friend's house. The pop-synth trio first gained exposure thanks to the label Kitsuné Maison. Their second EP Real (2014) was their claim to fame. The single "Real" is a real dance number. Go on, you know you want to boogey.
