Pop Macabre Pianist Calista Kazuko aims to beat commercialism with the release of her groundbreaking EP 'Project: Love Me'.
As the daughter of famed violinist, Paul Robertson, the high priestess of ‘Pop Macabre’, Calista Kazuko, was born into a bohemian family where classical music was a staple part of the diet. Now, the London based outré singer-songwriter and multi- instrumentalist is all about high art, high class, high gloss and high drama.
Calista Kazuko's classical roots at the Royal Academy of Music have been jettisoned, she is now carving out her own genre with a diamond-edged blade which she likes to call ‘sophistipop-noir’, perfectly and elegantly exhibited in her highly anticipated EP, Project: Love Me.
'As a full-time, unadulterated, unashamed drama queen, 'Project: Love Me' tells a story full of extravagance, opulence and of course - DRAMA!'
The collaborative producers named on the record include such music heavyweights as award winning film composer Guy Dagul, and super-producers Nuno Fernandes and Dennis Weinreich.
Calista's way with a grand piano, story-telling songwriting and sophisticated performance style blend together into a dry, heady cocktail that will leave your emotions exposed and giddy. She's not so much lightning in a bottle as the conjuror of the storm.

Following on from an incredible 2016 that saw her take the UK by the pink, fluffy balls, London's most charismatic rising star Girli announces the release of new single 'Not That Girl', taken from her forthcoming new 'Feel OK' EP out this April 11th - which features Lethal Bizzle on the title track.
Opening her new single "Take off my clothes and it's me underneath them, this is full time not just me on the weekend", Girli's statement of intent is as strong as ever. 'Not That Girl' sees Girli's characteristic vocal comes to the forefront of the track whilst Black Butter singer and producer King Henry (Major Lazer, Beyoncé) provides a stripped back, slick beat. The 'Feel OK' EP also sees London grime MC Lethal Bizzle jump on the title track with Girli with production from Diztortion (Lethal Bizzle, Tinie Tempah) as well as finishing with the Dimitri Tikovoi-produced 'Find My Friends', which recalls the frenzied chaos and everyday observation of her earlier track 'ASBOys'.
Speaking on the track, Girli explains "'Not That Girl' is a shout out to the smirks I get on the tube for wearing what I wear, the horror in strangers' faces when they see my pink hair, the sneering guys outside the pub who think that I care. It is the quiet knowledge that as long as I continue to be who I am and not the girl that others would like me or expect me to be, that I will overall come out on top. It's a mockery of mockery, a song of low-key empowerment in knowing that you're the only one who understands why you do what you do."
One of London's most polarizing artists, Girli has been garnering a loyal fan base since the release of her debut double A side "So You Think You Can Fuck With Me Do Ya / ASBOys" in 2015. Since then Girli has come in leaps and bounds, working with a series of incredible producers and writers whilst being championed by the likes of i-D, DIY, Noisey and the Guardian.
Girli's live shows are a raucous whirlwind of teenage chaos from start to finish. Following a support tour with Oscar and a series of sold out headline shows (including a partnership with UK collective Girls Against) GIRLI will be heading out on the road again for two headline shows this April at London's Electrowerkz and Glasgow's Stereo.

Shura has announced details of her much-anticipated debut album, ‘Nothing’s Real’, which will be released on Polydor Records on July 8th. The album is available to pre-order today, with ‘The Space Tapes’ (a psychedelic rework of some of the record’s highlights, laid down straight to tape) among the tracks available instantly.
Having surpassed 30 million plays and become one of the most enduring blog successes of recent years, new single ‘Touch’ has also been made Track of the Day at Radio 1 from today. After teaming up with the legendary Talib Kweli on an alternative version, a brand new Four Tet remix of ‘Touch’ is additionally available to stream now. Shura will open for Chvrches around Europe later this month before playing a headline show at KOKO on the 1st June 2016: further headline dates and festival appearances will follow (with the likes of Primavera, End of the Road, Parklife and a main slot at Great Escape already announced).
In many ways ‘Nothing's Real’ is the perfect title for Shura's debut album, which mixes the personal and the fantastical to beguiling, immersive effect. It features songs written and painstakingly recorded across two years in her Shepherds Bush bedroom - the site of which is blown up on the album’s striking artwork – but also reaches back further than that: into parents, childhood, past relationships and the possibilities of the future. All threaded together across the album’s often-affecting narrative, the record assimilates everything Shura loves – from early Madonna to Sci-fi, and War on Drugs to gaming – but is also the sound of an artist pushing themselves hard, further into the unknown. A phrase coined after a breakup, ‘Nothing’s Real’ confirms Shura as an important artist for the years ahead. Welcome – as the record was almost called – to her Shuniverse.
