Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Morly – If Only Chords

“If Only Chords” is a beautiful slow-burning and intense track built just from vocals and minimal electronic textures. I don’t know much about Morly, but she is playing SXSW next week and has a spot on my must-see list. There is also an EP coming out on April 8th.

SONG PICK: No Hot Ashes – Goose

“Goose” is the debut single by UK quartet No Hot Ashes. Upon listening to “Goose”, enjoying the clear guitar sounds, followed by funky bass lines and an overall super groovy feel, I got fully ‘sold’ on “Goose” when Isaac starts singing. Can’t help loving a Manchester dialect, with No Hot Ashes originating from Stockport, roughly six miles away[…]

SONG PICK: Night Games – Faithless

Our Song Pick of the Day, “Faithless” starts with a beautiful, lush synth line, before singer Constance admits that she cannot let loose, even though she has lost her faith in a relationship. Night Games are a duo from London, who push the combination of female vocals and electronics into[…]

SONG PICK: The Bay Rays – Four Walls

Released TODAY: The debut single of the UK trio The Bay Rays is a short one, with clocking in a little under two minutes but sure enough it doesn’t need more to make you fall for something. In the case of “Four Walls”, it’s the raw energy of good ol’ Ska[…]

SONG PICK: Vérité – Underdressed

Spring has arrived here in New York (at least temporarily) and we are all looking forward for being a little “Underdressed”, like New York singer Vérité in her new song. It is a sing-along power pop tune with something of a dark undertone. Enjoy our Song Pick of the Day!

SONG PICK: Blak Emoji – Sapiosexual

There’s a lot going on in “Sapiosexual”, lots of good stuff. Aside from the obvious, the rather brainy song title, with a Latin based and relatively newly created noun referring to being attracted to intelligence. What’s more interesting, for me usually anyway, is the music and it is uncompromising straightforward[…]

SONG PICK: Satellite Mode – Fair

Jess, singer of New York duo Satellite Mode is having it in a relationship where the other side is not playing “Fair”. Her vocals express anger and dissatisfaction, her partner Alex’ production underscores the drama of the moment. I hope you are not in a similar situation, but if you[…]

SONG PICK: Bryde – Help Yourself

Be prepared for goosebumps: London singer/songwriter Bryde develops her song “Help Yourself” from a quiet guitar and voice piece to a big rock anthem and back. “If you can’t help yourself, nobody else will help you out of this.”, she sings. That is true, too often.

SONG PICK: KYOSi – Early Riser

No matter if you are an “Early Riser” or not, our Song Pick of the Day will boost your Saturday. New York singer/producer KYOSi’s debut single is a fresh, upbeat track that channels the effect of the first rays of sunshine in the morning.

SONG PICK: Lightcliffe – Please Leave

Even after having listened multiple times to “Please Leave”, the 2nd single by London quartet Lightcliffe, my immediate feelings still ring true: this is a heartbreakingly sweet song, based on a great melody, with lots of warm and fuzzy guitars and topped off with kinda ‘innocent’ sounding, great vocals… While starting out[…]
