The New Colossus Festival – Day 1

This is the time of the year where we usually immerse ourselves into music full time with SXSW, and since last year also [The New Colossus Festival](https://www.newcolossusfestival.com) in our hometown. Of course it is different this year: SXSW is not happening, and it is hard to engross into anything other than… well, you know what. But to say it with one of the artists, Siv Jacobson, who traveled nonetheless from Europe to play at New Colossus: “Music always helps.” And so we double down on what we always do: find new music for you and write about it, as a reminder that life is going on and there is still a lot of beauty to be found out there.

Q&A with W. H. Lung (#airwaves19)

Q&A with Penelope Isles (#airwaves19)

Even before we saw Brighton-based quartet Penelope Isles live for the first time during this year’s The New Colossus Festival in New York, we were already fans of their beautifully crafted indie rock. Founded by singer/songwriter siblings Lily and Jack Wolter, the band consists further of Becky Redford (bass) and[…]

Q&A with Laveda

Laveda is based in Albany, New York and has only released two singles so far, but this duo is definitely up to something. Ali Genevich and Jake Brooks take classic shoegaze as a cue and craft energetic, fresh indie rock tracks. Listen to “Dream. Sleep.” and “Better Now”. Read on[…]

Q&A with Twelve Ballet

We have been following the music journey of siblings Sam and Ben Hope aka Twelve Ballet for more than two years and were enamored with pretty much everything they have put out. Their music hovers right at the edge between folk rock and synth pop and you never quite know[…]
