SONG PICK: Shlomi Ash – Wake Up

Coming across Shlomi Ash‘s latest single “Wake Up”, I also listened to “Taking Me Over”, the single before the current one and it is impossible to prefer the one over the other. Let’s stick with “Wake Up” though. While the Tel Aviv-based artist means “Wake Up” in a more figurative[…]

“Pop Song”  is a gorgeous track, with a mellow side to it but also one that makes you listen up and feel the music. There is something in “Pop Song”, the harmonies maybe, that make me think of some of the 80s biggest pop bands like Norway’s Aha. Then again,[…]

SONG PICK: Perla – Forgive Yourself
