Sway Clarke II
The Toronto born (Berlin based) musician has impeccable song-writing skills. His blend of multiple genres; Folk, Pop, Hip Hop and R&B, make for an exciting listening experience. Last year he collaborated with TINK on the song “Secret Garden” which could be classified as soul, however his genre-bending “I don’t need much” is what caught our attention.
Talwst (pronounced Tall Waist) released one of the weirdest, artsy, alternative R&B pieces we’ve heard in a while. The EP came out in 2012 and was received with rather harsh criticism. Nonetheless, Talwst showcased his fantastic production skills alongside executive producer Illangelo (associated act: The Weeknd).
If his name sounds familiar, it’s actually because Talwst is more known for his mini-sculptures which are often displayed in tiny jewelry boxes. Ironically, his EP “Alien Tentacle Sex” is very much so, out of the box.
