Katy J Pearson – Alligator [Video]

As a teenage girl in the 80s, I wish someone as utterly amazing as Katy J Pearson would have been around! I would have played her songs until the tape in my walkman started to give up. I also would have decorated my room with posters and magazine snippets of[…]

Helen Dagnya

Helen Ganya – Pleasure Dome

When the dark, high-energy synth-pop track “Pleasure Dome” came up on a playlist, I was delighted to see that U.K. singer/songwriter Helen Ganya is no unknown here: under the name Dog in the Snow, she has recorded music since 2015, for example, our Song Pick “Plastic Body.” Also check out[…]

Dekker – I Only Hope To Feel Love

Indie-folk musician Brooklyn Dekker, who makes music as Dekker, released his brilliant sophomore album  I Won’t Be Your Foe, of which “I Only Hope To Feel Love” marks the last single. The track is immediately irresistible with its mesmerizing production, featuring Dekker’s beautiful falsetto. How do you think a track with such[…]

VIDEO PICKS: ARY, Blu DeTiger, Chromeo, Caregiver, girl in red

ARY – My Awe Sustains Earlier this year, Norwegian musician ARY released an excellent album. She now released a dark, unsettling video for the lead single “My Awe Sustains” with the help of director Pernille Sandberg and digital artist Herwig Scherabon. ARY recalls: “I’ve always loved ‘music video’ as a[…]

Elis Noa

Elis Noa – Mad About You

We know Elis Noa from Vienna, Austria, for their elegant future pop since 2019, back then still as a three-piece. They are about to release their second full-length, “I Was About To Leave,” this Friday. The latest single, “Mad About You,” had some self-therapeutic effects on singer Elisa as she[…]

fanclubwallet – You Have Got To Be Kidding Me [Video]

“You Have Got To Be Kidding Me” is the title track of fanclubwallet‘s just-released album. Behind the moniker is Ottawa-based musician Hannah Judge, who says about the beautifully mellow song, that’s tinged with just the right amount of upbeat sprinkles: Sometimes people can be really mean to you and try[…]

Laura Veirs

Laura Veirs – Seaside Haiku [Video]

“Seaside Haiku” is exactly that: a song born from haikus written in Seaside, Oregon. The gritty but cheerful song about doing your own thing is the second single off “Found Light,” the 12th album by Oregon-based singer/songwriter Laura Veirs. It is the first one she co-produced after focusing on songwriting[…]

Antoine Chambe – Breathing Underwater (ft. Jimmy Burney)

French producer Antoine Chambe delights with his new single, “Breathing Underwater” featuring singer Jimmy Burney. While Chambe is a diamond-selling artist, Los Angeles-born and based Burney is multi-Grammy-nominated, and their collaboration is gloriously exhilarating. The song sounds like breathing underwater might sound like, and Burney’s vocals stand in beautifully blissful[…]


Mayfly – Black Water [Video]

Being among people but still feeling alone and isolated – is what Charlie and Emma of the Montreal duo Mayfly go through in their new song “Black Water.” Musically and visually, in the video directed by Adrian Villagomez, they describe the struggle from two perspectives that come together to create[…]

The Luka State – Bring Us Down [Video]

After a little hesitation, whether I’d really want to go so much ‘rock,’ it became clear that I do because “Bring Us Down” is irresistibly stunning! The crazy banger is the new single by British four-piece The Luka State. Until recently, I was sort of worried that the times of[…]


Nyxen – Silence in Motion

Synthesizers were new and exciting in the 80s and were often used for themselves’s sake, not always to the best effect. But some musicians were more careful and integrated electronics with the existing rock sensibilities. New Order or Ultravox come to mind here. That is the vibe the singer, songwriter,[…]

VIDEO PICKS: Chelsea Jade, Eliza Niemi, Rosie Carney, The Darcys

Chelsea Jade – Superfan “Superfan,” the video, fascinates from the get-go. The new work by Chelsea Jade sees the artist in close-ups and surreal positions, all kept in black and white. The song is taken from her new album Soft Spot, out on Carpark Records. New Zealand-based Chelsea Jade is[…]

smallmint – The Dark

Something small can be very powerful, like a mini peppermint which can be all that’s needed to feel refreshed. Irish indie-rockers smallmint (lower case, of course) released the irresistibly catchy “The Dark” the last single from their atmospheric debut album where we all end up in the end. Indeed that’s[…]

Lauren Waller – Nothing but Life

While Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Lauren Waller released her new single “Nothing but Life” a little over three weeks ago, the wistfully optimistic track just now landed in our inbox. We’re back from a little vacation up north and the pensive melancholic vibe resonates with us. In her catchy and utterly[…]

Evie Balfe

Evie Balfe – Wearing a Crown

London-based singer/songwriter Evie Balfe is “Wearing a Crown,” but that is only the start of her troubles. The slow-burning synth-pop track meanders like her thoughts about never making it to the other side, where happiness is guaranteed. But while the song builds around the drama of her insecurity, it also[…]
