Having ghostwritten for the likes of Lana Del Rey, Adam Levine, Avicii, Madonna, and Charli XCX, Sterling Fox has set out on his own and re;eased his new single “Angry Sons” last month, featuring UK DJ/singer Samantha Ronson on vocals. He’s now put out a video for the track, and as you can see below, it’s a brilliant mash-up of motorcycle movies, with Marianne Faithfull’s The Girl on a Motorcycle and David Lynch’s Lost Highway featuring prominently.

This sampling of the South London rapper’s impressive talents features on his latest EP, Time Out of Mind, which has already gained some traction in his native UK. Having explored a gamut of pop-music styles, Coker’s hip-hop rests comfortably in a secured space of influences pooling from both sides of the Atlantic.

Tongues in Trees is a collaboration between vocalist Samita Sinha, guitarist Grey Mcmurray, and drummer Sunny Jain (of Red Baraat). The trio have been playing in and around New York City for a couple of years now but they only released their debut album Parallel last week.

And the trio’s otherworldly music does possess a certain magnetism. Parallel‘s lyrical nuances have the flow of a poem which begs re-reading. Stream the album below and catch Tongues in Trees at one of two Parallel release shows this week:
