SONG PICK: Enjune – Yellow Hearts

Enjune is the project by L.A.-based musician Jake Goble. In his third single the titular „Yellow Hearts“ of friendship turn to something more, which often brings dilemma and heartbreak.

SONG PICK: Matias Malagardis – Hollywood

Brighton-based singer/songwriter Matias Malagardis delights with his new single “Hollywood”, featuring a beautifully moody guitar, so prevalent in West Coast surf sound and exquisitely contrasting with his Spanish roots. “Hollywood” touches on what is and what could be all the while exploring different sonic possibilities. The sparse and deliberate instrumentation[…]

SONG PICK: Company Ink – Young Milk

Without context or knowing anything about Company Ink, one could easily place “Young Milk” as a song straight from late 70s Manchester, because it bursts with an undeniably catchy urgency, dark punk undertones and a remarkably infectious vibe.
