PC Music: Month of (December)hem

PC Music are known to go through phases of not releasing anything – but there’s other times where they’ll drop a bunch of new stuff in a very short period of time…a couple of days, for instance.

So here’s everything new in the PC Music world in the past few days:

1) SOPHIE – PONYBOY

We at Prinsesh know that SOPHIE isn’t an official part of the PC Music roster, unlike every other publication ever. However, SOPHIE does have strong links with the roster including A. G. Cook production collabs “Hey QT” and “Moteur Action (Remix)” and GFOTY-assisted single “HARD”. Recently, SOPHIE dropped “It’s Okay to Cry” and now she’s back with a brand new single “Ponyboy” with a video to go with it.

2) CHARLI XCX – OUT OF MY HEAD F/ TOVE LO & ALMA

Charli XCX has just announced the release of her sixth mixtape ‘POP2’ and along with the announcement, she dropped a brand new single “Out Of My Head” featuring Tove Lo and upcoming BBC Sound Of nominee Alma. The track, produced by PC Music boss (and Charli’s creative director) A. G. Cook along with SOPHIE, is a laid-back piece of pop perfection which is sure to please fans while they eagerly await ‘POP2”s upcoming release.

3) FELICITA – HEJ!

felicita is easily one of PC Music’s more underrated artists. The ‘A New Family’ EP was a spark of brilliance but was largely overshadowed by releases by GFOTY and Hannah Diamond at a similar time. However, felicita has had a great year of releases including the ‘ecce homo’ EP, his ‘Post Tenebras Lux’ and a remix of Danny L Harle’s huge ‘Super Natural’. Now, he’s back with a new single “hej!” from his next project, due to arrive in 2018. The video features the Polish dance company Mazury.

4) DANNY L HARLE & TKAY MAIDZA – BOM BOM

Danny L Harle teams up with Australian rapper Tkay Maidza for a new single, titled “Bom Bom” – and disappointingly, it’s not a cover of Sam & the Womp’s ridiculous #1 hit of the same name from five years ago. Danny L Harle has had a busy year which included the release of his ‘1UL’ EP as well as various single releases under different aliases. Meanwhile, Tkay Maidza released her debut album just over a year ago and has since followed it up with a single “Glorious” which was commissioned by the problematic Lena Dunham for her television show ‘Girls’.

5) LIL DATA – HARD ATTACK SURFACE

If those four single releases weren’t enough for you, the wonderful Lil Data has provided us with fourty-two minutes of new music in his live mix ‘Hard Attack Surface’. The mix was produced using live coding platform TidalCycles, and was recorded live at Atlanta music venue Aisle 5. Lil Data releases two live code mixes earlier this year as part of PC Music’s Month of Mayhem, and two songs (“Casey Asked Me Am I Angry” and “Temple (TidleCycles Edit)” landed on PC Music’s Month of Mayhem compilation album.
