New Find: Annabel Jones' "Magnetic"
Annabel Jones could be the best-kept secret on SoundCloud. Listen to "Magnetic" now.

Eves The Behavior needs to be on your radar. The Australian newcomer, who is already being compared to fellow antipodean stars Lorde and Broods, casually dropped one of the best singles of 2015 in January. Produced by Eric J (he previously worked with Flume and Chet Faker), “TV” is a strikingly beautiful synth-pop anthem that places the 20-year-old’s downy vocal in a dark, ominous soundscape.

The eerie track sounds like the edgiest James Bond theme never recorded and should ensure the Brisbane-born songbird’s addition to every credible Next Big Thing list. As for the video? Eves took it very seriously. “Alain de Botton says that people only start to get interesting when they rattle the bars of their cages,” she explained. “That idea of being inherently half as bad as we are good is something I’m fascinated by.” The clip is her attempt to reflect that visually using various characters from literature. Watch below.
