27th May 2015: TIDAL – This week’s TIDAL Rising artists.
A program dedicated to artists from around the globe who have passionate fan bases and are ready to broaden that base to a wider audience. Tidal Rising was built to help accelerate the exposure that artists who are on the verge of breaking big need to gain through exclusive features to Tidal subscribers.
Marissa Jack (aka the “Golden Hippie”) was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. She spent her teenage years writing songs and crafting a musical style, before she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her musical dreams further. After touring with Prince on his Hit and Run tour and featured on his song “Art Official Cage”, she is currently putting the final touches on her full-length debut on Hundred Hand Records. The Golden Hippie weaves a golden dream of free spirited lyrics, contagious melodies, and cinematic pop music.
Hana – “Clay”
“Clay” is the promising debut single from Grimes protégé and Los Angeles based songstress Hana, produced by Blood Diamonds (also a close associate of Grimes). The Line of Best Fit described it accurate as “Soaked in sparkling beats, infectious pop melodies and a glittering lacquer.” Shes to tour with Claire Boucher and Lana Del Rey on their Endless Summer Tour this year, has a fan base including Del Rey, Lorde, Baths, Ariel Rechtshaid – and well, the future just seems bright for Hana.
Leikeli47 – “Leikeli47”
Mysterious, masked artist from Brooklyn: Leikeli47 (pronounced “leh-kay-lee”) is a rapper, producer, lyricist and a composer. She made her musical introduction with the self-produced mixtape, LK-47 in 2012. With the 2014 follow up project, LK-47 PT II she caught the attention of both Skrillex and Diplo. Following a string of buzzing SXSW perfomances, the musical wunderkind recently released her new eponymous project via hard cover/ RCA Records.
God Damn – “Vultures”
NME recently described their debut album Vultures as “A caustic collection of shamanic thrash and malevolent gutter-blues”. God Damn hails from Wolverhampton and combines barbed wire guitars, lung-shredding vocals and drums that run like wild horses. Being a duo they’ve been obviously compared to other rising acts like Slaves and Royal Blood. They’re a blast live, and they’re a blast on album as well, combining bomblast and bluster with nuance and melody.
Bhi Bhiman – “Up in Arms”
Bhi Bhiman is a second generation Sri Lankan- American, growing up in St. Louis, Missouri. With clever lyrics and a mix of folk, blues, motown inspired urban-soul and hints of reggae (and even garage rock). He’s often been compared to Woody Guthrie, Rodriguez and Nina Simone. Bhiman’s brand new third album “Rhythm and Reason” hopefully marks a bigger breakthrough.
