Between her addictive new Morgan Geist collab/summer jam as the Galleria and her sultry, intoxicatingly languid new slow jam “You Never Show Your Love” with Teklife‘s DJ Spinn and Taso, Jessy Lanza has been on absolute fire lately. Today she drops a fitting visual for the latter track, and while not the first vid in recent memory to gloriously incorporate an inflatable air dancer thing — shout to HARRYS for Les Sins’ “Bother” vid — there’s something undeniably hypnotic about watching an effortlessly cool Lanza hold it down in a parking lot flanked by two air dancers that writhe around like Elaine Benes in super slo-mo. Directed by John Smith. Jessy Lanza’s You Never Show Your Love EP is out July 24 on Hyperdub.
Our friends at Cascine manage to uncover another beautiful pop gem, this time from Stockholm siblings Marcus + Lara Andersson (the former co-wrote that amazing new LIZ track with SOPHIE), aka TVÅ. “Always Be” + “Keep Me a Secret” are sweetly smoldering examples of the kind of pristine, glimmering pop that apparently only Sweden can produce, taken from the duo’s new single, out soon on Cascine’s singles label CSCN.
