SONG PICK: Alewya – Play

“Don’t mind if I play.” London-based singer/songwriter Alewya invites you to have some fun in her new track “Play.” The song celebrates the joy of living with love and dance, while the music keeps you on edge with tribal drums and heavy bass lines. After all, all good play needs[…]

SONG PICK: Cuffed Up – Terminal (Video)

Earlier this year, we came across Los Angeles-based indie-rock quartet Cuffed Up and featured them in our Videos of the Week series. Now they landed on our radar again with “Terminal,” another fantastic song albeit far more gripping video. It’s not something I enjoy watching, but that might be exactly[…]


SONG PICK: Notelle – Turnover Rate

Stephanie Middleton aka Notelle is a Nashville-based singer/songwriter who we love here at glamglare. Her gritty brand of pop music does not shy away to peek into the darker sides of life. Notelle’s latest song, “Turnover Rate,” adds some Garbage-vibes with a fuzzy guitar while it is putting a spotlight[…]

SONG PICK: VLURE – Heartbeat

On the heels of announcing their upcoming debut EP Euphoria, Glasgow indie-rockers VLURE release the hard-hitting and utterly fascinating “Heartbeat.” Their sound shows a diverse range of influences: from German krautrock over post-punk to electronic dance music with hypnotizing hooks. Ultimately though, this emerging five-piece is about to create their[…]

Carly Shea

SONG PICK: Carly Shea – Hold On To Me

NYC pop musician Carly Shea is back with “Hold On To Me,” an infectious, dance-the-night away pop track. For now, it is the last one of this kind, Carly says, before she moves on to more soulful music. Here at glamglare, we cannot wait to hear what she is up[…]

SONG PICK: Astral Swans – Spiral

Canadian singer/songwriter Matthew Swann, artistically known under the moniker Astral Swans, just released a beautiful, new self-titled album of which we feature the moody “Spiral.” For that single, Swann enlisted the lovely vocals of Julie Doiron, who lends the moody track an airy and optimistic vibe. Asked about “Spiral,” Swann[…]

VIDEO PICKS: Alix Page, ANIQO, Corrina Repp, Jamie Perrett

Alix Page – 25 Alix Page is far younger than 25, so she does look way into the future in her new song, reminiscing about a past relationship. The rest of us can take her video at face value and indulge in nostalgia about a carefree, seemingly perfect summer love.[…]

SONG PICK: ELDR – Spinning Tops

U.K. composer Marina Elderton has racked up many credits for film scores. In 2018 she released “Defender,” her haunting debut single, back then under the name UV. Now she is back as ELDR with a brand new slow-burning atmospheric track “Spinning Tops” that deals with a personal experience. Marina says:[…]

Cate Le Bon

SONG PICK: Cate Le Bon – Running Away

Heavy bass lines dominate the sound of “Running Away,” the new single by Welsh singer/songwriter Cate Le Bon. On her upcoming album “Pompeii” she used bass guitar and synth as composition tools and played and recorded most instruments herself in isolation. Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint contributed drums from her home[…]

SONG PICK: Trentemøller – All Too Soon

Danish composer, musician, and producer Trentemøller releases the mesmerizing “All Too Soon.” For his newest single, he once again features the compelling vocals of longtime collaborator Lisbet Fritze, whom we could last enjoy on the dreamy “In The Gloaming.” In “All Too Soon,” Trentemøller explores the push and pull of opposites[…]

Danielle Lewis

SONG PICK: Danielle Lewis – Slow, Sad, and Real (Video)

“Slow, Sad, and Real” is a sweeping reflection about dreams, reality, and the overlap between the two. Welsh musician Danielle Lewis enlisted videographer Mark James for adding some stunning visuals that shun overused effects and tired cliches about how dreams look like. She says about the song: “Slow, Sad and[…]

SONG PICK: Stats – Wet Black Trees

Too bad to discover a really cool band only to learn that they’ll call it quits by next month. Granted, they go out in style, releasing a farewell album and celebrating with one last live show. However, their music will live on and so we enjoy “Wet Black Trees,” the[…]

SONG PICK: Sparrows – I Know Fire

Fire – a metaphor for excitement – can be too much and dangerous or too little and dull. In her upbeat pop-anthem “I Know Fire,” Sydney-based musician Jessica Nitties aka Sparrows, assures you that you can make it work for you either way. She says: “[I Know Fire] has taught[…]
