Jimi Charles Moody is the moniker of a currently anonymous UK chart topper. Whoever this may be, one things for sure, he makes one hell of a soul/blues infused pop track. Not much info is available online, but all three of his currently shared track are pretty spectacular, with new cut The Woman soaring with the confidence of someone who has clearly honed their craft. His voice is dark and brooding, coupled with heavy handed piano and melodramatic strings, creating a sound that is definitely hard to ignore.

Stream The Woman below as well as previously released track Other Man:

My younger brother spent the best part of the last year living in Paris, and having taken the time to visit him back in April, it quickly became evident to me that it’s a city unlike any other. The unparalleled history of the place co-exists alongside a remarkable vibrancy and youthfulness; it’s no wonder that so many young creatives are choosing to relocate to the French capital. POSTAAL, a Anglo-French duo currently residing in Paris released their debut track, Freedom, earlier this month, and it’s an inspired first outing. Intimate when necessary yet hinting at a grander sound to come, the stunning visuals that accompany allude to the unpredictability of youth and the longing for a sense of escape from the mundane. Check it out below, alongside a remix of CitR favourites, Formation.

Wasting no time at all, Brighton duo IYES are back with a new track, just a week since they shared So Crazy. No Wonder is yet another slice of well formed, infectious pop which is hardly a surprise as the duo have been spouting out increasingly great music over the past couple of years.

My favorite LA band MUNA have just returned with a new track Promise and oh boy, it’s a cracker. Drenched in their beautifully 80′s infused anthemia, the jumping basslines and crushing drums stand as the perfect backdrop to the stark lyrical themes, delivered in typically great fashion from lead singer Katie Gavin. Oh, and be sure not to miss the gloriously over the top guitar solo during the songs closing minute. This is how pop music should be.

Be sure to see more of Katie, Josette and Naomi in the near future.
