VIDEO: Violet Sands – Drive

The joy of having no destination, no purpose in a long drive is the topic of the new video by Violet Sands. Not so much in their home base of Brooklyn, so naturally the video takes place on the West Coast. Or maybe not – it is rather a wide[…]

SONG PICK: FEHM – Last Breath

Former post punk trio, now quintet FEHM is back with a new single, and a more intense sound. “Last Breath” is reminiscent of early 80s The Cure, with thick guitar and synths lines, brooding atmosphere and an overall mesmerizingly dark vibe. For someone who grew up with new wave, dark[…]

EXCITED ABOUT: Resin – Fidget EP

Here is a more unusual piece of electronic music: raw, dark, grand and glitchy. “Fidget”, the debut EP of L.A. via Prague singer/producer Resin. There is something of Zola Jesus’ orchestral arrangements in it, but I also feel somehow reminded of the now obscure 80s industrial pioneers Hula. In any[…]

SONG PICK: Plastic Flowers – How Can I

London via Thessaloniki singer/songwriter and producer George Samaras, who goes by the artist name Plastic Flowers, released “How Can I” – a beautiful mix of the best dream pop and shoegaze have to offer. “How Can I” opens all airy and dreamy, then the guitars intensify, releasing all their sonic power in one[…]

SONG PICK: Halina Rice – KWYMO

“KWYOMO” is a track that pulls you in immediately: a driving, heavy beat feints a rock song before, before distorted synths set in and turn the whole thing into an exciting piece of electro pop. Halina Rice is a producer from London, who marries – not unlike to Kelly Lee[…]

VIDEO: Robyn Cage – Slow The Devil

Singer/songwriter Robyn Camp, who resides in Salt Lake City, is known for making highly sensual videos to go with her powerful, sultry vocals and story-telling songs. For one of her recent singles “Burning Now”, she ventured out into the desert and set a piano on fire –  for real! This[…]

SONG PICK: Lou Scarrs – All I Ever Knew

“All I Ever Knew” sits on the irresistible cusp of hard-hitting indie rock and enchanting pop, with great vocals, intelligent lyrics and an overall catchy vibe. According to Melbourne-based musician Lou Scarrs the track is about: ‘discovering that everything you thought you knew was bullshit – kinda like finding out[…]
