Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Cocoa Futures – The Blue

“The Blue”, the new single by U.K. four-piece Cocoa Futures, is one of these songs that grew on me after listening a few times and now I’m hooked! Frontman Greg says about the track: “It’s a good idea to feel sad sometimes, but the things you can do to avoid feeling down[…]

SONG PICK: Sorcha Richardson – Lost

Sorcha Richardson wrote “Lost” for a friend whose girlfriend has broken up with him. That is hard to overcome, but he is lucky to have a friend who creates such a beautiful, comforting song and then even writes such nice things on the cover image. Sorcha is originally from Dublin[…]

SONG PICK: Bad Wave – Night School

On the surface, “Night School” by Los Angeles duo Bad Wave seems to be a straightforward electronic pop-song, not really upbeat but also not melancholic. But there’s so much more to the track than utilizing old synthesizer sounds and adding a ton of new ones. There are these dead-pan vocals that deliver lyrics[…]

SONG PICK: Ofelia K. – Another World

L.A. singer/songwriter Ofelia K. says about “Another World”, our Song Pick of the Day: “My vision for this song was for it to take you through different worlds, as though the listener is traveling and taking in new terrain throughout.” Mission accomplished: you don’t really know if this song is[…]

SONG PICK: A Festival, A Parade – If Dogs Could Talk

U.K. alt-rockers A Festival, A Parade deliver a moody and dark, slightly sinister yet irresistibly catchy new track with “If Dogs Could Talk”. Joe Allan lets his baritone vocals set the vibe and Liam Tellum provides a crazy tempo and rhythm on drums, while Ollie Winn supplies the necessary structure with his bass and Reece Spencer makes his guitar chime like back in New[…]

SONG PICK: Maccie – Bleed

“Bleed” is a dark song with a menacing bass line meandering through the track. It is about “It’s about wanting sex. Needing it. Craving it. Obsessing over it.” and it does not feel like something joyful will ever come out of it. Then, towards the end, with an unexpected guitar[…]

SONG PICK: San Blas – Zaid

When played with skill and used wisely, the ukulele can bring an alluring element to a song and San Blas know exactly what to do with the little 4-string guitar. “Zaid” is a high-energy alt-rock track, that employs the uke as rhythm guitar, strumming fiercely along, while an electric guitar provides[…]

SONG PICK: Nightmaze – Markovian Parallax Denigrate

What is the “Markovian Parallax Denigrate”? I didn’t know but I looked it up. It’s quite fascinating: the Usenet, one of the early Internet protocols, turned from an academic tool into a dungeon where bots spamming each other with mysterious messages. The Australian duo Nightmaze, the project of Ben Smith[…]

SONG PICK: Elle Exxe – Sick

It’s almost impossible not to fall for the allure of “Sick”, the highly infectious new single by Elle Exxe. “Sick” is catchy dark-pop, with edge and style, and aside from Elle Exxe’s powerful vocals, the guitar solo at the end of the track is especially rad. Elle Exxe will be touring this fall, and[…]

SONG PICK: Bad Feelings – For You

As if a song title like “For You” would not get my attention already, then these bright, blissful synths lines do the trick with their distinct 80s feel, evoking memories of some of the best romantic movies of that time. “For You” is the latest absolutely gorgeous single by L.A. indie-rock duo Bad[…]
