Psychic Shakes, the solo project of Brighton-based artist Max McLellnm, knows how to mesmerize listeners with the help of hooks that are an enchanting blend of dreamy meets edgy. No different with his latest single “Suddenly” that features shimmering piano synths as the base for bright guitars and warm and[…]
“This is what it feels like to be free.” In her latest song “THRIVE” Singer, songwriter and producer Emma Shaw aka emzae encourages you to shake free from the expectations of others and go your own way.

It has been a while since we could treat ourselves to a new song by SAVI MINDS, the solo project of Los Angeles-based songwriter, singer, and producer Mikale D’Andrea. Luckily, D’Andrea was able to use the pandemic enforced slowdown and finished material he has been working on during the months[…]
Born in Colombia and based in Brooklyn, Ela Minus is a synthesizer maven who does dark, electronic pop music without the help of computers.

They just released their excellent second full-length album (listen here) and while most tracks explode with energy, the closing track “After The Rain” strikes a different note.

We probably all need a holiday from solving problems, bad news and general stress. In her latest song “Holiday” Mïrändä proposes taking some time off to fix a relationship, but in the end she leaves us doubtful if this is going to work. “Maybe we don’t need to talk at all,” she sings and that rather points to an attempt to simply gloss over real issues.
