Explore Discrete

What we have on the imaginary turntable today is modern pop music at its finest. Explore is a five-song EP by up and coming Swedish artist Discrete, with help from Charla K, on the opening track, Feed Me With Love. A catchy little dance tune with retro synth sensibilities. 

At the number two spot is the churning of Typo which spotlights Tudor and Victoria Voss who engage each other in a verbal sparring match with some more smart dance-friendly pop music.

Number three is a Stupid Thing. For real, it is a Stupid Thing, that is the name of the track, Stupid Thing. It features Neville, and together they explore the never-ending topic of love and dating. Discrete tells us that she sent a demo to Neville and her producer and what had once been an instrumental track flowered with lyrics and stunning vocal. Discrete was excited because this was different from anything she had done previously, we are glad for that because this Stupid Thing is irresistible.

Second, to last on the EP is a radio-friendly little number called Better Days. This collaboration with her longtime friend Chris Collins is a catchy synth-pop tune. Taking a different angle to the never-ending love story this is about long-distance love and the challenges that come with that.

The closing track Runaway sees Discrete collaborate with well-respected Swedish songwriter Alex Shield, who is launching his projects under the name of KELLYKKE. Combining crisp beats and breezy synths that flow graciously together; Discrete and KELLYKKE explore urges for self-discovery and new beginnings.

Talking to us about the collaboration, Discrete tells us: “KELLYKKE and I met for the first time last summer, and we’ve been working on a lot of songs together since. He came up with an idea for a song using a guitar and his vocals, and before we knew it, Run Away was born. We ended up experimenting until we finally found a middle ground that fitted both of our sounds. I feel humbled that he wanted to release his first single as KELLYKKE with me.”

So there we have it folks, five catchy modern pop, radio-friendly, little summer dance beauties. Summer will be different this year with social distancing but if you find yourself alone on a desert island Discrete has cooked up a nifty EP for you to pass the time until the rescue arrives. Have fun, listen to more music and stay safe.

Feed Me With Love

Discrete - Feed Me With Love (Coverart)

What happens when four very talented Swedes get together? No, the answer is not to feed me with Raggmunk, although I would not turn that down. The correct answer is “Feed Me With Love”, the new single from Charla K, Alex Shield, Discrete and NEIMY, four talented individuals. All four of them brought their unique talents to the recording and we are blessed with a very danceable song, ‘Feed Me With Love’.
This song started with Charla K dabbling with some piano bits and pieces and her partner Alex adding some lyrics. Feed Me With Love sat on the shelf for two years and then NEIMY and Discrete were invited into the songwriting process to help with the lyrics and production in that order.
Charla recalls it this way; “Alex and I stumbled on the entire melody in a matter of hours. We never had to bang our heads to flesh out ‘Feed Me With Love.’ The painless songwriting process left us focusing on other projects until we brought NEIMY and Discrete onboard. The four of us secured the song’s irresistible pulse.”
Discrete adds to the conversation and explains, “I wanted to project the aesthetic from a decade ago onto contemporary house, so I experimented with some clean synths until I settled on what you hear on the track. Together with the guitars, the track sounds simultaneously like 2010 and 2020.”
“Feed Me With Love” is irresistible, the heartbreaking lyrics of Charla, Alex and NEIMY soar through Charla amazing voice and mesh seamlessly with the production of Discrete. This is a song to dance along with all summer, the album will be dropping soon as well, I look forward to having all three singles from the album and the new and unheard material, it will be like Christmas in the summertime.
