Klingande is a deep house duo from France with an instrumental, jazzy-pop sound. The band relies heavily on piano and saxophone to create their sound. Their song, “Jubel,” begins with a  tribal beat and continues into a slow piano, gradually gaining momentum. The song features a saxophone, along with a steadily growing beat. Their music has a jungle vibe with soul that will make anyone want to get up and dance. The duo has yet to release a full length album, but we can only hope they bring us more fun, jazz-inspired pop tunes soon. Check out Klingande on iTunes and Spotify.

 

3. London Grammar

London Grammar is a electronic pop trio from the UK. The band features the strong, soaring voice of vocalist Hannah Reid. Reid has been compared to popular artist Florence Welsh, of Florence and the Machine. The band has an electronic sound that combines with the emotional tones of Reid’s voice to create music with resonating depth. In their song, “Night Call,” one can feel tension between the lyrics and the slow, crawling piano. The song ends in an explosion of emotion and soul, with Reid’s striking voice resounded the lyrics, “I’m giving you a night call/ To tell you how I feel and how I feel.” Be sure to check out London Grammar on iTunes and Spotify.
