SONG PICK: Vandana – Vicious

Something “Vicious” is lurking in the new song by Brooklyn via London via India producer/songwriter Vandana. Only her voice casts a ray of light here and there into a mix of meandering, dark synth pads and muted marching beats. Play it loud on headphones and let yourself fall into the[…]

SONG PICK: CAESAR – Crossed Wires

These days, more so than ever, Manchester seems to be an incredible breeding ground for interesting, new bands and CAESAR only manifest that notion. The quartet’s  new single “Crossed Wire” is bright and jangly, with twist and turns, seeking new heights and experimenting with dreamlike, shoegazey elements. Listen to the gorgeous “Cross[…]

SONG PICK: Glider Pilots – Expose to Weather

I am currently in Munich and it is raining cats and dogs, but putting on the new Glider Pilots track immediately makes me feel a fresh sea breeze while sun rays tingle on the skin. That may because Samantha and Ben Hope are from Queensland, Australia, a vacation dream destination[…]

SONG PICK: Childcare – Kiss?

“Kiss?” is a song that immediately mesmerizes with its interplay of different vocals, with the chorus/melody background delivered by gorgeous female vocals with male verses over it. As much as I was immediately taken by “Kiss?”, I was sort of surprised by the band name Childcare which has just the most charming[…]

SONG PREMIERE: Kojun x Zaena – Count On Me

Beautifully re-assuring and exactly what we want to listen to is “Count On Me” by Kojun x Zaena, an electronic dance-floor gem, as sparkly and shiny as they come. The UK production duo Kojun collaborated with Zaena on their first release of the year. Heavy beats, infectious rhythms and a great melody provide the basis[…]

PHOTOS: EMIKA enchants at in-store gig at Rough Trade

Add ‘composer’ to electronic singer/songwriter and producer EMIKA‘s bio because the Berlin-based British artist just released her first symphony called “Melanfonie“. Yes, this is her first symphony and if her previous three magnificent electronic albums titled “Emika”, “Dva”, “Drei” are any indication, she is planning to compose another symphony or something similar in the[…]

VIDEO: Orchid – Body

“Body” by Orchid has already been our Song Pick of the Day a few weeks ago, but the video kindled our appreciation for the track again. What is Orchid doing here? Where is she?

SONG PICK: Park Hotel – Gone As A Friend

“Gone As Your Friend” is the ultra gorgeous debut single by London-based duo Park Hotel. With its driving playful beat and rhythm, its mesmerizing electronic vibe, as well as joined forces of female and male vocals  this track could be easily the sonic love child of Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem, and yes, “Gone[…]

VIDEO: Less Acrobats – Dirty Lover

Less Acrobats are a four-piece from Tel Aviv who do eclectic pop music. The video for “Dirty Lover” tells a story on multiple levels. What is going on here?

SONG PICK: Línger – Avoid

“Tuple”, the debut EP of Sydney-based singer/songwriter Línger, is inspired by the five elements (the usual four plus space). “Avoid”, an ethereal, floating track carried by her vocal harmonies and lush synth lines, feels mostly like “air” (at least until the inevitable down-pitched vocals pull it down to earth). I[…]

VIDEO: Drew Vision – Without You

The new single “Without You” by neo soul artist Drew Vision is delightful and catchy in its own rights, to make us want to listen to it again, and then some. But with THAT video? Drew Vision got us at ‘Barbados’! Just what our winter souls need right now (or maybe all[…]
