issue 19 - the healing power of laying in the sun
a few indie musical comebacks, the electronic supertrio taking over London by storm, remixing some personal classics and more
welcome back to FRESH! find us on insta @freshbywing ♡ how is your headspace feeling?
hasn’t been much of that around here lately, hoping the sun makes a comeback this week. we’re keeping this issue short and sweet as the writing powers that be have been restless this week, and i’ve also been keeping my consumption of new things to a minimum, for a change.
FRESH: new music
You Are Love - Chrome Sparks
the king of funk himself Chrome Sparks is back with his first release of the year, the dreamy You Are Love! for the full audiovisual experience, do also listen to the track with the music video below, featuring Chrome Sparks himself vibing in a curious mix of natural surroundings.
Oceans Niagara - M83
yet another return - M83 is back with the first single off their upcoming album Fantasy, set for a March 17th release! Oceans Niagara is the first new material we’ve heard from M83 since their 2019 album DSVII, and makes for a very promising start to this upcoming era. it channels some classic M83 sound a la Ok Pal, perhaps with a little of The Mowgli’s’ The Great Divide - lots of throwback indie energy all round!
FRESH: live sets
Fred again.. x Skrillex x Four Tet - Live at Brixton Electric
remember the iconic Fred again.. x SHM x Four Tet set from issue 13? Fred again.. is back with another B3B, this time swapping out Swedish House Mafia for Skrillex to celebrate the release of their track collaboration Rumble, and forming the now fan-dubbed supertrio ‘Pangbourne House Mafia’ in the process. enjoy the full 4 hour recording of their whole set from London’s Brixton Electric, with a behind the decks VIP camera view. as usual - lots of classics from each of the boys, plus a generous smattering of IDs.
the trio is set to make their next stop in NYC, playing a series of yet-unannounced shows from February 15-19th - cryptically announced by Fred himself on his Discord!
the JEWEL WATERFALL hair barrette
here’s our latest bling offering and our first piece in our S/S 2023 collection, the JEWEL WATERFALL hair barrette! she features a bejeweled main barrette, adorned with flowing chains of beads and wire-wrapped designs. we switched things up and designed this barrette as an honorary remix between our CROWN JEWELS collection and our IRIDESCENT WATERFALL collection, inspiring the construction of the main barrette and wire-wrapped adornment respectively.
we love remixing our previous collections and pieces - drop a comment or message to let me know which particular past pieces you want to see remixed!
if you’re feeling off your game this week, you’re not alone. energy ebbs and flows, and if it’s not your week this week, it’s not the end of the world. the next one is a new chance to give things another go.

I'm def most excited for A$AP Rocky's return to music! I imagine once the album is finally out he'll be able to dedicate even more time to him and Rihanna's baby which is still a surprisingly wonderful thing to say lol. All the new songs from his performance at the Amazon Live Music thing sounded excellent!
Great to hear that M83 is back with new music! Love pretty much everything they release. I spend so much of the end of each year trying to listen to/evaluate the years music that I don’t even consider what is coming in the next year. I’m still in that mode. I do like to be surprised so I’ll hope that it’s a year of musical surprises and returns to form from some that have been quiet for a while.
