SONG PICK: Dawson Gamble – What You Don’t Know

Toronto-based singer/songwriter Dawson Gamble just released “What You Don’t Know”, his most personal and maybe also ambitious single to date. The track swirls and builds, with an infectious catchiness, and I get quite the Panic! At The Disco vibe, aka the appeal of Brendon Uri’s vocals. Dawson is not only[…]

Kat Duma

SONG PICK: Kat Duma – System

Our collective 2020 experience surly will long resonate in the arts. “System,” the new song by Toronto-based singer and producer Kat Duma is a good example: almost an instrumental and without much of an explicit intention, it perfectly reflects the unique melange of this year’s emotions: uncertainty, worry but also[…]

SONG PICK: Aly Jett – Bad Dreams

While “Reverie”, one of Aly Jett‘s previous singles featured a melodic piano backdrop, she changes gears drastically in “Bad Dreams”, replacing the mellow piano with fierce guitars and steady percussions. Alone her soft, appealing vocals provide a reprieve from the feeling of unease. We reached out to the California-based singer/songwriter[…]

VIDEO PICKS OF THE WEEK: Ella Grace, GHXST, Kinlaw, October Drift

Ella Grace – I Wonder London-based singer/songwriter Ella Grace seems to be in good spirits in her new video “I Wonder,” but the song is about how a relationship can fade in times of enforced distance. Ella explains: The person I’d been seeing and planning a future with was in[…]

Irene Skylakaki

SONG PICK: Irene Skylakaki – Sutherland Avenue

Greek singer/songwriter Irene Skylakaki does something of an experiment with her song “Southerland Avenue:” while she ostensibly sings about a failed relationship of her own, she does it in a way that invites you to fill in the blanks. Then the song fades out with a 80 seconds long instrumental[…]

SONG PICK: Eric Selby – Another Page

The smooth vocals and the coaxing blues guitar in “Another Page” make for love at first listen. The new single by Eric Selby has a beautifully chill flow with lots of lovely pop sprinkles thrown in. Having made a name for himself as sought after session musician, Eric Selby now releases his[…]

Laura Jinn

Track by Track: New EP “Sick!” by Laura Jinn

Today, Brooklyn singer, songwriter, and producer Laura Jinn releases her new EP “Sick!,” a razor-sharp production, both musically and lyrically. Set to classic synth-pop reminiscent of early Depeche Mode, Laura gives an honest account of the life around her. And while she does not beat around the bush with her message,[…]

C'Est Karma

SONG PICK: C’Est Karma – Industrial Salt

Karma Catena aka C’est Karma is a singer, songwriter and producer from Luxemburg. Her latest single “Industrial Salt” is a stunning electronic track which comes up with a new sonic surprise around every corner and accumulates loads of of chills-inducing drama on the way. Karma took the inspiration from her[…]

SONG PICK: Blessed – Structure (Video)

Canadian art-rock band Blessed released today their new single “Structure” together with an enigmatic music video, directed by Kaayla Whachell. The single and music video announce the upcoming EP “iii” out February 19th, 2021 via Flemish Eye Records. The four-piece carries the label “art-rock” for a reason as “Structure” does[…]

Katie Kuffel

SONG PICK: Katie Kuffel – Carillon

“Carillon” is about recovering from a violent attack that Seattle-based singer/songwriter Katie Kuffel experienced in college. But the song does not much dwell on the suffering, but emphasizes the resilience that helps overcoming such a horrible experience: horns, organ, guitar and Katie’s powerful vocals all blow into the faces of[…]

SONG PICK: Luke De-Sciscio – Casuals (Video)

For many people, 2020 was more than just challenging. And particularly for artists, this also meant a severe crack in their creative process, with difficulties coming up with words and melodies or whatever their medium of art. However, London-based singer/songwriter Luke De-Sciscio shows no slowing down, thankfully! Had we enjoyed[…]

Elle Reve

SONG Pick: Ellereve – Melt (Video)

Elisa Giulia Teschner is a singer, songwriter and producer from Munich, Germany and Ellereve is her new solo project. First single “Melt” is a dark electronic pop track where two conflicted characters seem to find each other – until a heavy synth line in the bridge hints that fate might[…]

SONG PICK: Thom Southern – Perfect Someone

Unsure what you are craving these days, but I seem to gravitate towards the sunny songs, the ones with a big dose of hope and a touch of nostalgia. “Perfect Someone”, the new single by Belfast singer, songwriter and producer Thom Southern hits all the right buttons. When I read[…]
