Ahead of his 11-track album “I Used To Be Sad & Then I Forgot”, British singer/songwriter Mr. Alec Bowman released the quiet and beautiful “Safe Mode”, together with a gorgeous video. Writing and recording songs, putting them all on an album, and releasing it at one point, takes time. With an[…]
Tel Aviv- and Berlin-based singer/songwriter Lara Snow does big, glittering synth pop reminiscent of Icelandic artists like Vök or Hildur. In her latest single “Wild Sea” she reveals a very personal story “of a poisoned relationship and a great heartbreak.” Don’t expect her sulking, though: Lara’s music always feels elevating and empowering and is maybe what you need right now to brighten your day.

Let’s forget for a moment how you could interpret this in new ways right now and just enjoy a delightful pop song in which Canadian singer/songwriter Alex Porat comes clear about her erratic dating behavior.
The mellow, contemplative and beautiful “Evelyn” by Vancouver three-piece Red Vienna, is accompanied by an equally compelling video. The cuts between band practice/live show and singer/bassist Jahmeel Russell walking on the street are maybe surprisingly mesmerizing and soothing. The artfully shot video is directed by Adrian Mottram. When asked about[…]
