It’s been a while since we’ve heard something new from the CunninLynguists. So, we’re just as excited and intrigued to see this mysterious image posted on their official sites (and all three of the members pages as well). The only included information was a date in the image description: 03.31.17.
What could it be?!! Whatever it is, it’s new and it’s from CunninLynguists, and that’s something always worth getting amped for.

FJER’s last single ‘Her Turn’ was making the rounds after being selected for Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, and now with “Better” being included in their flagship Weekly Buzz playlist and a championed by The Line Of Best Fit as their top track of the week, she further cements her position within the empowering female-fronted scene. The debut album from this rising Danish powerhouse will drop in 2017 on Quintic.
“We wanted to do something that really conveyed the sense of detachment in broken relationships – a way to embody the “what ifs” visually,” she says. “The result is this glitchy video by Peter Anthony Red, and a cameo from fellow singer Emilia James, who suffered wet clothes, chilly water and a suffocating fog machine for an entire day with me.”
Forward-thinking Danish electro-soul artist FJER, returns with her new single ““Better”. With a sound that calls to mind SIA and Banks laced with an upbeat, almost anthemic vibe, the singer/songwriter/producer’s raw emotional overtones mirror the introspective life reflections common to us all: both inclusive and yet isolated.
Produced by the Danish duo Nector, “Better” is an infectious alt R&B-flecked electronica pop gem that slides effortlessly between bassy beats and spacey lulls, showcasing Fjer shimmering vocals to perfection. FJER explains how “the song itself was in limbo for years until Nector boys breathed new life into it”. Having received support throughout the year from BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, The Fader, Stereogum, and Pigeons And Planes for work with the Danish Scandi-pop sensation KIll J, The duo’s production of “Better” further displays their commitment to creating a captivating sound and gives FJER the platform she deserves.
Speaking more about the origins of “Better”, Fjer explains how her approach to the track was like opening a time capsule to the past’, and explores the nuances of relationships changing over time. “I discovered that someone I was in an on/off relationship with hadn’t changed one bit. There seemed to be this notion that we were just gonna pick things up were we left off – so it was written to remind them of how much ‘better’ we could’ve had it, had they chosen me.”
Fjer’s last single ‘Her Turn’ was making the rounds after being selected for Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist with “Better” looking to further cement her position within the empowering female-fronted scene. With plans to return in 2017 with her debut album on indie label QUINTIC, we can only anticipate what is next for the Danish powerhouse.

Recently, QUINTIC’s Lucy Camp caught up with the good folks at The Cypher Effect to perform a live rendition of “Can I Forget You?” from her stellar Down Talk EP. We love how effortless she makes super complicated patterns and flows sound. Enjoy!
NYC’s emcee/producer/singer/songwriter, Tonedeff delivers a massive new single from his new album, Polymer. “Sunrise (v2)” is at once a freestyle-flavored stadium trap epic and a paean to embracing insomnia and the stressful grind of modern life. Following a mechanically vicious second verse, the song culminates in wall-of-sound style choir, featuring the voices of Fjer, Kokayi, Deacon The Villain (CunninLynguists), Steph The Sapphic Songstress and newcomer, Emilia James. This is progressive hip hop taken to gorgeous new heights.
“I wanna be riddled with millions of rays on the skin of my face
Till the cinnamon pigment is colored crimson in shade
And I’ve been in the gray and I’m sick of waiting
And I don’t want to wonder anymore if the sun has risen today”
Share the fuck out of it.
