The utterly beautiful, quiet, and artfully arranged “Ambulance” is the lead single of Keaton Henson‘s new album “Monument.” The album’s opener is also characteristical for the eleven tracks as a whole, as Henson explains: “”Ambulance” is an entertainer’s cry for help, mistaken for a pop song, and applauded instead of[…]
Nashville-based singer/songwriter Notelle likes her music dark and with unsettling undertones.

“True Romance” refers to the 1993 movie and while you probably don’t want to be stuck in a Quentin Tarantino movie, there are always characters with an undeniable appeal.

Californian three-piece The Drives could as well have met in early 2000 and not only in 2017 because of the cool and catchy indie-rock they create. It was 2017 when singer and songwriter Andrew Levin and guitarist Casey Chen met over their bedroom recordings and formed The Drives. Later that[…]
Promise and the Monster is the project of Swedish singer/songwriter Billie Lidahl. Listen to her new song “Closed My Eyes” and it becomes clear why she has shared stages with Chelsea Wolfe.
