Song Pick of the Day




Lia Lia

SONG PICK: Lia Lia – Night Call (Video)

“Night Call” is about feeling isolated and bored and escape by conjuring up a more exciting reality in your mind. Berlin-based singer/songwriter Lia Lia created a dark, melancholic synth pop song that is best savored together with the atmospheric video, directed by Jannick Schneider

SONG PICK: Zero 7 – Outline (feat. Lou Stone)

Fans of Downtempo, trip-hop, and any kind of chill electronic music will know about Zero 7, the British duo consisting of Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker. With their 2004 released second album “When It Falls”, featuring the vocals of Sia and Mozez, among others, they put themselves firmly on the[…]


SONG PICK: Berne – Heat

Berne is a London-based duo originally from Malta who put the declining health of the planet front and center of their music. But don’t think of quiet acoustic singer/songwriter fare, Berne does big, haunting pop songs, like their latest single “Heat,” which paints a dire picture of climate change. But it is never too late to take action and change the way how you do things as Berne did with their new website, which is powered entirely by renewable energy sources.

SONG PICK: Nicolas Michaux – Enemies (Video)

Belgian singer/songwriter Nicolas Michaux dropped his album “Amour Colère” today, and “Enemies” is the last single from the glorious album, which is full of complex and diverse stories like relocating to a new country or the shift in family life up to excruciating topics like death. “Enemies” is as brooding[…]

SONG PICK: JWestern – Check In

Soft, pleasing vocals over a bed of glistening guitar sounds and groovy beats that brighten even the darkest places, even a melancholic heart, maybe. John Gooding, who[…]


SONG PICK: BYFYN – Ain’t Gonna Be Lonely

Nothing really bad is going on in “Ain’t Gonna Be Lonely,” just the realization that life might go down the wrong path. From a personal experience U.K. artist Ellie Isherwood aka BYFYN created a song keeps a level of discomfort below its otherwise bright pop sensibilities: an ominously pulsing bass line and an eerie synth patch put a weight on the sing-alone chorus, just like Ellie’s concern do on her relationship.

SONG PICK: Cosmo’s Midnight – Idaho

“Idaho” is the final, and extremely satisfying cut from “Yesteryear”, the second full-length album of Cosmo’s Midnight, out on October 2nd via Sony Music Australia. The electro-pop duo consisting of twin brothers Cosmo and Patrick Liney, calls Sydney their home. Essentially, “Idaho” sounds very Australian in the sense that it[…]

SONG PICK: Blakkheart – Honey Boy

Eimear O Sullivan is a producer, engineer from Cork, Ireland who records under the name Blakkheart. For her new song “Honey Boy” she sings herself and creates the vibe of a pool-side Sunday afternoon reflection, albeit one with strong melancholic undertones.

SONG PICK: La Poré – Blame

Formerly the drummer of Cleveland-based pop band Captain Kidd, Nick Samson exchanged Ohio with California and now calls Los Angeles his home. With his new psych-pop project La Poré, he blends 80s synths with exquisite drum work and tops it all with his gorgeous falsetto vocals. La Poré’s new single “Blame”[…]
