SONG PICK: Modern Crowds – Eye Of The Storm

While “Eye Of The Storm” is ultra-gorgeous in its own rights, with its sophisticated rhythm mix, the soothing vocals and its overall mesmerizing vibe, no other than Radiohead come to mind when listening this new single by Jersey-shore quartet Modern Crowds. Yet that comparison is nothing but a good thing, if[…]

SONG PICK: Aggressive Swans – Every Teardrop

“Every Teardrop” is a beautifully fresh flashback when synth-pop was all the rage, with its crazy-cool beats and overall irresistible catchiness.

SONG PREMIERE: Gordon Raphael – View From Blue

Excited About: Birch – Not Human (EP)

There is something remarkable to the way Michelle Birsky, singer and songwriter in the Brooklyn duo Birch delivers the songs on their latest EP “Not Human”: the four tracks feature bright, soaring vocals and synths, yet the lyrics speak of disorientation and social dysfunction. That increases the the impact of[…]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Sera Eke – The Space Between Us

3 Is A Band: Charlie Johns

In short, the new single by Dublin-dwelling three-piece Sleep Thieves is as stunning as it is irresistible, holding the perfect balance of push and pull. Sleep Thieves[…]
