BIG? NOT YET

B?NY | #016 | roots are made for growing

Cheers to new voices, to never stop shouting and claiming for their own space.

But also here’s to our strongest roots and our latent cult for longevity. Past and future rely on the present, and any current creative piece relies on its roots.

The cycle begins again with a gathering of ancient tribal rhythms, pioneer soul voices, far-in-time funky arpeggios… that, like seeds, return to the ground, allowing to light up something new. Because roots make us grow up to the sunlight and lead us to such findings.

If you listen to Suzi Wu's hit "Highway", you might get the impression that her music just revolves around a sweet teen imaginery with an appealing desire for urban periferias and wild runaways. However, her tunes are actually a window to a whole deeper point of view. A world of enfuriating dance moves, where the line between the artist and the performer is very tricky to define. Grunge, clubs and literature as primary inspiration that result in outstanding aesthetics. An artist that won't leave you indifferent.

The Dresden duo’s electropop spells started back in 2017, and their multiple releases are idealistic manifestos to both rave moments –"we're on the run, we won't stop until the morning comes", they recite– and to warm music outcropping club-friendly chills. Letting the piano become their departure point, they create an unstoppable synthline waterfall that fairly reminds us of The Blaze's layered voices.

Their latest song, Imprinted (2020), is a remake of their first song ever, which they turned into a pandemic release which feels both calm and catchy. Back in time, siblings Ysa and Ygo decided they had many things to share through music besides their innate compenetration: eerie companionship feels and a wide, even mysterious, musical spectrum. Here’s the mash: bouncy lines that draw them near Tom Misch’s R&B and a honest aim to transform feelings into playful tunes.

Her sharp soul is a little bit about screaming to the void and decomposing sadness, love or life interpretations into an intimate simplicity. Her sensitivity becomes a heartwarming delight. Pay attention to the handclapping single Lose a Minute or the lively Jump Right In, which belongs to her recently released debut EP, Fly (2020).

Despite having already had some of his first songs featured in popular Spotify playlists (well-deservedly), it wasn’t until last August that this London-based producer released his solo debut EP, “Something, Safe”. His delicate electronic melodies, which are often accompanied by mesmerising vocals, fit particularly well cozy-at-home-rainy-outside days. But hey, don't get us wrong, we have to admit we enjoy his music in bright sunny mornings as well. Anyway, if you happen to listen to Lights Out using headphones, watch out, you might be (positively) overwhelmed.

Their latest single sums up what we have probably repeated the most this year: "putu any" ("fucking year"). Guineu ("fox" in Catalan) are getting ready for the release of their first album in 2021 - until then, you can give a listen to their subversive energetic tracks, fed from the rock punk they grew up with as 90s kids.
