New Optimism
New Optimism is the new incarnation of shapeshifting artist Miho Hatori, each song on her debut EP is a magic curveball zig-zagging between pop, electro, hip-hop and experimental. She makes music that’s moving, genuine and emotionally-driven, sounds inspired by art and philosophy and pumped up with dance hall, trap and Caribbean influences. Live, she’s playful and captivating. “Amazon to Lefreak” is as much a bouncy and carefree record than it is smart, sophisticated and precisely shaped. Born and raised in Tokyo, New Optimism has chosen New York as her home, and just like the city, she’s vibrant, quirky and always on the go.
Pecas
Pecas
Pecas is the nom de canción of Brooklyn-via-Madrid artist, Sandy Davis. Through pecas, Davis invites us to dance slowly, even cautiously, as she mixes gentle percussion and breathy vocals into a brand of R&B that is both seductive and sinister. Playing off of the traditional tropes of “baby-making” music, it’s characteristically silky and smooth, but it’s music to do-the-dirty to with one eye open - where “Let’s Get it On” quickly becomes “You Better Run” if listening closely enough. The combination of glittering sounds and alluring vocals is a lethal one. Pecas is a gender-bending femme fatale for a new generation.
