Song Picks of the Week
Let’s quickly jet over the Atlantic to Italy, to listen to Francis by June and the Well. Luckily, we can all stay where we are and yet enjoy this sweet and mellow rock number, our Song Pick of Monday!
There’s a lot of great music coming from Iceland. So much that we’re seriously considering going to Iceland Airwaves Music Festival one day. Here’s an example: Vök with Waterfall, our Song Pick of Tuesday.
We continue our virtual trip through Europe and stop in Riga, Latvia because Words Like Birds our Song Pick of Wednesday originates from there. Carnival Youth sing most of their songs in English but some also in Latvia, which I personally find equally charming. You might want to check out their upcoming album, for now though, listen to “Words Like Birds” which faintly recalls UK’s Editors.
Song Pick of Thursday: Alina Baraz and Galimatias collaborated on this chilled, downtempo track Unfold, which invites to lounging in the sun. Not me, unfortunately, I had to go back to work.
Proof, that a band doesn’t necessarily has to live near the ocean to create a psychedelic beach-feel tune, is Penicillin Baby with [Stick It Out] – our Song Pick of Friday. Who’d known that Nasvhille, TN rockers could make the beach feel so close? A ride on a bike so desirable? Waiting for the sunset, with a drink in your hand…. just listen already!
Here’s a track from the Canadian duo Strange & Primitive as our Song Pick of the Day. I like the vocals, somewhere between Dave Gahan and Matt Bellamy and that’s not a bad place to be. The album is expected for August 21st.
Here’s a Song Pick of for a lazy Sunday afternoon: AAA+ from Australia with “Soma Days”.
