Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Glider Pilots – Simple Things

Here on the northern hemisphere we are in full summer mode, so we gladly take this track by the Queensland, Australia brother/sister duo Glider Pilots to celebrate the bliss of the season. “Shoreline’s a magnet, it keeps pulling me” singer Samantha Hope declares dreamily to shimmering guitar lines and gentle[…]


Listening to dozens of new bands and even more new music each day, it happens that something falls through the cracks but luckily never too far down to not get noticed again. “Overrun” is one of the tracks, that I initially overlooked. A mistake, an inexcusable almost, because “Overrun” is an[…]

SONG PICK: Chelsey and the Noise – Graveyard

The duo is called Chelsey and the Noise and the song “Graveyard” and they mean it. That becomes clear in the first seconds, when a distorted church bell is joined by noisy guitar riffs. Like Gazelle Twin or Fever Ray, Chelsey and the Noise master the art of creating unsettling,[…]

SONG PICK: Exes – Like You

“I don’t even think that your songs are about me”, Allie McDonald, one half of the L.A.duo Exes, complains. There was probably not much to save in this relationship, but she and her band mate Mike Derenzo can still write an excellent song about it. “Like You” is an elegant,[…]


“Destroy You” is a breathtakingly fantastic indie-rock track, with an undeniable Radiohead vibe to it, think earlier days Radiohead, think “Paranoid Android” and then you have the coolness factor of “Destroy You” right here right there! This powerful, psychedelic, grungey instant indie-rock classic marks the debut single of London trio MÅNTRA and is our Song[…]

SONG PICK: Alpines – Heaven

Alpines are Catherine Pockson and Bob Matthews, a duo from London. Our Song Pick of the Day, “Heaven” matches Catherine’s soulful vocals with electronics and a relentless hand drum beat. Something doesn’t fit together here, but that makes the track so intriguing. It is the first single from their second[…]


“Won’t Break” is like an impressionistic painting, created with the softer tones of the color palette, with steady strokes yet light and pleasing at the same time. And so, this new single by CHELAN is a gorgeous and slowly but steady pulsating indie synthpop gem. CHELAN, (pronounced “sh-lan”) are Jennifer Grady and Justin Hosford, who broadened[…]

SONG PICK: Soffía Björg – I Lie

Our Song Pick of the Day is another track from Iceland: “I Lie” by Soffía Björg, a fierce rock song that falls somewhere between Americana and punk. “You lie”, then “I lie” she shouts, telling the story of a relationship of broken promises. Soffía is playing Iceland Airwaves this fall.


“Explore” is a song you would want to listen to while getting ready for a night on the town and then again, while on the dance floor with a hot date by your side. The sizzling “Explore” is blissful guitar heavy electro-pop at its best. Listen to “Explore”, the new single by[…]

SONG PICK: Hannah Peel – All That Matters

“All That Matters” starts with a swirling synth line and builds from there into some sort of uplifting anthem until it ends with a cliffhanger: London singer/songwriter Hannah Peel wants to make us curious for her second solo album “Awake But Always Dreaming” (wonderful title!), out on September 9th. The[…]
