Edith Bowman Recommends: New Music Of The Week

Listen To Edith's Hot Tips


Edith Bowman is ELLE's new Music Editor. Every week she'll be reporting on ELLEUK.COM telling us who to download and listen to immediately.

This week she recommending:

Natasha Khan & Dan Carey & Toy

When I get an email through with the name Natasha Khan in the subject heading, I pay attention.  Sexwitch comes from international record shopping and reworking lyrics and arrangements from their finds around Morocco, Thailand, Iran and the USA to produce six fantastic pieces. What a wonderful and positive way to celebrate cultures from around the world in music form.  



'Earth Not Above' by Haelos 

This is such an exciting band. HAELOS are a London trio who are putting the finishing touches to their debut album. They have perfect synergy on this video between the audio and visuals. A lovely subtle narrative filmed by Jesse Jenkins over the most incredible tune that builds tension and atmosphere like it's a film soundtrack. I can't wait to see them live.

Plus three new artists to watch: 

1. Siobhan Wilson

A young singer songwriter from Scotland who blew my socks off when she played live on my radio show a few weeks ago.  Her new EP 'Say It’s True' is breathtaking, and shows the diversity of her voice which she uses to perfection as a proper instrument. Multi talented and multi instrumentalist, I’m very excited about what’s to come from her. 

2. Only Girl

I don’t know much about her apart from I LOVE what I hear, it’s like a cross between Jessie Ware and Mariah Carey. Amazing. 

3. Gwenno - Y Dydd Olaf

Not entirely a new artist as she has been part of both the Pipettes and toured with Pnau, Gwenno is at the beginning of what I think is an exciting journey as a solo artist. Her whole album is sung in Welsh but please don’t let that put you off. It hasn’t done with me and Sigur Ros or a lot of Super Furry Animals or loads of other non english speaking music makers - who are all fans.
