From the Faroe Islands comes one-man act Sakaris (full name Sakaris Emil Joensen) who recently released his debut four track EP, ‘Darling EP’. It’s electropop ranging from dreamy soundscapes to the danceable, sporting a little hip hop, house and 8-bit spice, and you can check the whole thing out on MySpace along with six other tracks. Oh, and if you dig it you can download the ‘Darling EP’ here!
Zebra & Snake (SF)
Finnish duo Zebra & Snake aka Matti Ahopelto (bass, drum machine, vox) and Tapio Viitasaari (synths, vox) have been clawing their way up in the blogosphere with a string of remixes and their own excellent take on electropop embracing the cool parts of the 1980s. Right now they’re releasing an EP titled ‘Nighttime’ bit by bit on Big Stereo and the first track ‘We Never Go When We Have To’ is available for download here!
