Electro-pop duo Poems for Jamiro (Hamburg, Germany) and Spanish singer-songwriter Alice Wonder (Madrid) got together in late 2019 to start recording an electrifying single which will see the light of day on June 19, 2020 released by GMO – The Label. The artists first met while playing a short showcase tour in Germany in November 2019. During that tour they came up with the idea of writing and recording a song together. The result is a wave of engaging electro-pop which sticks to your skin and bones and invites you to dance as you throw away heartaches and unreachable lovers. It is the matching soundtrack to a car drive at night heading for the club in an impossible chase for love and adventure. The voices of all three artists shine clearly and harmoniously “on and on” to the unsettling beat of the “white noise” and the melodies are beautifully built with synthesizers and programmed drums.
Toi et moi released a new version of their song "Camille" on 5 June, which was recorded under the spring sun by Unplugged Park Cologne. Enjoy the beautiful acoustic melodies of this two-voice duo from Cologne that play the "Nouvelle Chanson"! The song and video is already on the Unplugged Park Cologne YouTube channel! Give it a listen!
After her first single, almost a month and a half later, Ede reappeared with an emotional new single “La Raíz” on 5 June. It is the second track of a series of songs performed acoustically, only with a piano and her voice, in a live show that reflects the essence that makes this young artist one of the promising musicians to be considered for the future of the music scene. Well-structured songs, armed with a powerful meaning, and in which the empathy generated from her lyrics, always written in first person, make the experience of listening to them unique and intimate; and the icing on the cake: a superb vocal interpretation.
The Spanish artist Alice Wonder released her new single “Corazón Mármol” (marble heart) on the 29th of May and it is now available on all music platforms. On her debut album “Firekid”, published in 2018, Alice Wonder sang mostly in English. This is the second in a series of Spanish songs that temporarily interrupts her English compositions to write in Spanish, her mother tongue. In doing so, she continues on her way to explore the expressive possibilities in her mother tongue and to express herself in it through her music.
Alice Wonder is releasing her new single “Por si apareces” [In case you show up] on the 24th of April. It is one of her most loved songs at her concerts where people sing along to the line “esta guerra pide paz” [ English: “this war is begging for peace”]. This will be the first of an upcoming series of Spanish songs, putting her English compositions on hold, in order to write in her mother tongue. This has allowed her to explore the expressive possibilities of Spanish compositions and also go further after her first incursions into the Spanish field with Bajo la piel and La apuesta. Therefore, the new EP will be proof of how her writing transformed from playing around with Spanish lyrics to a possible —and actual— reality both now and in future works.
