The Playlist: Chvrches / Royksopp / Cloud Control
The songs that are hot on our playlist this week
The Glasgow-electro pop outfit released this new single a couple of weeks back, but its taken some time for the blogosphere to catch on. Despite their small relatively repertoire, the band has built a reputation as quality songwriters.
Taken from the latest installment of the 'Late Night Tales' project, this previously unreleased track appears alongside a mix of songs curated by the band (pictured).
Rejecting the slightly corny psychedelica-by-numbers that made up their first LP, 'Cloud Control' now seem a far more interesting act.

Following up his critically acclaimed mixtape, 'The Luca Brasi Story', Gates delves deeper into radio-rap with this first taste of his forthcoming debut LP 'Stranger Than Fiction'.
Not the greatest band name in the world, but thankfully Ludvig Parment's electronic dance-pop is nowhere near as bland as his moniker.
