New Music Highlights – Ilgen-Nur, Garden City Movement & Jacob Bellens


Dear friends,

Welcome back to the next instalment of the finetunes weekly highlight.

After her first EP “No Emotions” and just in time for her this years’ Tocotronic tour support, the German-Indie-Secenes new shooting star Ilgen-Nur not only releases her new single “Matter of Time”, but also delivers a lovely music video worth to see.

Currently based in Tel-Aviv, the trio Garden City Movement are formed of Roy Avital, Yoav Saar and Johnny Sharoni, who produce a blend of sounds drawn from their diverse cultural worlds, ranging from art pop to experimental house. “Before I Fall” is the latest single from Garden City Movement’s debut album “Apollonia”, set for release on 16th March 2017 via Night Time Stories, the sublabel of the well-known Late Night Tales.

With his new album “Trail Of Intuition” Danish singer and songwriter Jacob Bellens once again is shimmering somewhere in between electronically influenced songwriting and synthpop music, using his characteristic voice to reflect on his life’s journey. Since the age of five, making music means creating a parallel universe to Jacob Bellens. It’s his very own space, where he can be himself and always retreat to, no matter what happens. Out of this universe the Copenhagen based musician has released numerous songs and albums with his previous bands I Got You On Tape and Murder, with side projects and features as well as a solo artist. “Trail Of Intuition” is his fourth solo album and the second one that’s internationally signed with hfn music.

Further interesting releases can be found below in the form of Felix Räuber, Florian Favre Trio and more.

Seit sieben Jahren ist die Band OTTO NORMAL rund um Frontmann Pete fester Bestandteil der deutschsprachigen Musikszene. OTTO NORMAL sind ein komprimiertes Orchester, das in der Synergie von Pop und Rap seinen Stil gefunden hat. Dabei ergeht man sich weniger in Jim Pandzko-Floskeln, sondern bietet den Zuhörern einen Reality Check an, ohne an eingängigen Melodien zu sparen. Im Mai 2018 erscheint ihr neues Album „Wieder wir“ bei Jazzhaus Records. Jetzt wird aus Studio wieder Bühne, aus Stift Mikrofon und aus Isolation der Drang zu sagen: “Wir sind wieder da!”
