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[…]

Goldpark – Lady Lightyear

Indie rock three-piece Goldpark just released the glorious “Lady Lightyear” and will be on tour throughout May and June, playing some of these shows with fellow Nashvillians The Thing With Feathers. I first noticed Goldpark thanks to their formidable cover of the New Radicals’ superhit “You Get What You Give,”[…]

Sofie Mathiasen

Sofie Mathiasen – Magnetic Love

Sofie Mathiasen currently attends school in Vienna but she comes from a diverse background and was raised in South America. Her first single, “Magnetic Love,” is an intimate but catchy pop song about the push and pull of a complicated relationship. She is currently working on more material for an[…]

Charlie Hickey – Gold Line [Video]

“What’s the point of even trying” muses Charlie Hickey on the beautifully mellow “Gold Line,” and takes the listener on a joyful ride. The accompanying video supports the positive, inviting vibe, because that’s what the gorgeous track ultimately offers. “Gold Line” is taken from Charlie Hickey’s upcoming album Nervous at[…]


O. Wake – Let’s Get All Pessimistic

O. Wake is the project of Brooklyn-based musician Ofer Shouval. With his second single, “Let’s Get All Pessimistic,” he takes you on a wild music ride against the negativity bias in the news that can become a self-destructive addiction. Listen to our Song Pick of the Day below:

Brijean – Shy Guy

We are huge fans of Cali duo Brijean, comprised of much thought after percussionist Brijean Murphymulti-instrumentalist Doug Stuart. The duo is announcing their new EP Angelo, with the irresistibly catchy “Shy Guy,” out August 5th on Ghostly International (pre-order/pre-save.) Ultimately, the emotive “Shy Guy” serves as a motivational anthem for[…]

Kathryn Williams

Kathryn Williams – Answer In The Dark [Video]

Liverpool-based multi-faceted artist Kathryn Williams announced her new album “Night Drive” for July 15 on One Little Independent. The second single, “Answer in The Dark,” is a sweeping, nocturnal track with cinematic string arrangements. Kathryn says about the album: Some of it is questioning who we are, realising that being[…]

Quarry – Chemical

British artist/producer Quarry offers a glorious slice of pop with the refreshingly upbeat “Chemical.” Out via Columbia Records, Quarry says about his new single: “Chemical” is ultimately about letting go of things we can’t control – like the chemicals that shape us, racing through our bodies and colouring everything we[…]

Carly Shea

Carly Shea – Brush it Off

Here at glamglare we are big fans of NYC-based singer and songwriter Carly Shea since her 2020 track “Forever.” Now she is back with brand new music, which adds a good dose of soulfulness to her synth-pop sound. The new swanky, feel-good song “Brush It Off” is about an exercise[…]
