WATCH HERE“Their harmonies are so good…” – Phil Taggart, Radio 1
Dreamy Belfast alt-pop duo New Portals have revealed the video to their emotive track ‘Skyline’.
The video sees New Portals’ Mike & Ruth Aicken elope to the towering wonder of New York City, where their airy R&B-infused pop proves itself the top-flight soundtrack to lofty surrounds.
Channelling an ethereal electronic take on pop, which also pulls from captivating hip hop beats and sunshine indie sentiments, New Portals deliver a sound reminiscent to Oh Wonder, Sylvan Esso and Broods.
They’ve already won over Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart with their irresistible harmonies in ‘Skyline’, as well as their previous track, ‘Do It Right’.
The duo have clocked up huge support on Spotify, claiming over 11 MILLION streams in total with New Portals and their previous folk project, The Jepettos.
Now expanding their horizons across a delicious new aural pallet, the Irish duo are proving themselves to be one of the most promising new sounds to be gleaming from the Emerald Isle this year.
