NEW TRACK: Elohim – Sensations

Listen to “Sensational”, an anthemic track about the singularly blissful moment of being in love. Elohim, a somewhat mysterious singer/songwriter from L.A. has already released a bunch of songs (like this one) and is now readying her debut LP, due on May 20.

SONG PICK: Tusks – False

This is what I find currently the most exciting kind of music: an effortless blend of guitars and electronics, cool and emotional at the same time. “False” by Emily Undersell, who goes by the name Tusks, combines all this in a wonderfully slow-building track. “I still believe in you”, she[…]

The band, consisting of Brennan Mari (lead vocals), Elijah Gundlach (guitars and other instruments) and Tom Rydquist (production), could have also a gotten a[…]

SONG PICK: Chelsea Lankes – Paralyzed

Let’s end this somewhat L.A.-heavy week with Chelsea Lankes, whose new song “Paralyzed” is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Her dreamy reflection about a relationship of the kind “Maybe it works out, and maybe it doesn’t”, could very well take place on a sunny beach – there are seabirds[…]

LATE NIGHT: Agelast – Fever

In the mood for something Saturday-night cool, the perfect mix of synths, dance beat, rock guitars and vocal chops all accumulating in a hard-to-resist super catchy track? Look no further but listen to “Fever” now, the new single by Agelast, a duo from… nope, neither LA, nor New York but Nashville! “Fever” is one these[…]
