Song Pick of the Day




Charm of Finches

SONG PICK: Charm of Finches – Treading Water (Video)

Two days ago, Emily McNally asked “Can we be friends.” Today, Australian sister duo Charm of Finches is one step further in their new song about the friendship that could replace a relationship. With gentle guitars and beautiful harmonies, “Treading Water” is a trip down memory lane. While Mabel and[…]

SONG PREMIERE: Logan Prescott – tongue

Over the past couple of years, producer, songwriter, and singer Logan Prescott released an oeuvre of highly appealing electro-pop songs and now adds “tongue” to the impressive mix. Logan Prescott’s new single is everything you want your summer hit of 2021 to be: spirited, sexy, and simply irresistible! Only six[…]

Emily McNally

SONG PICK: Emily McNally – Can We Be Friends

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Emily McNally takes bedroom pop to the next level: just with her iPhone, she has crafted an intriguing piece of electro-folk about the clashing emotions that come with love or friendship. But there is nothing simplistic about the song: intricate beats and meandering synth lines float along, while[…]

SONG PICK: IRJA – Heavy State of Mind

“Heavy State of Mind,” the new single by London-based Swiss duo IRJA is irresistible from start to finish. While the fragile beginning with moody guitar picking evokes Radiohead’s “Knives Out” or TORRES’ “Polish Welcome,” IRJA’s track quickly intensifies and takes on its very own, mesmerizing turn thanks to the beautiful[…]


Song Pick: Everstill – In Your Dreams

Everstill is the duo of singer and guitarist Sara Aridi and drummer Luca Bertaglia. Their first single, “In Your Dreams,” is a dark dream-pop jam, not far from what brought Warpaint on the map in 2010. Sara and Luca are hailing from the Middle East and Italy, respectively, before meeting[…]

SONG PICK: The Eiffels – Collide

Our sunny springtime days just got better thanks to “Collide,” the new single by my favorite Los Angeles indie-pop band, The Eiffels. As we came to love The Eiffels, “Collide” doesn’t dilly dally around but cuts right to the chase. High energy from the get-go that doesn’t slow down but intensifies[…]


SONG PICK: Mïrändä – These Summer Nights

Summer seems to be finally here in NYC, and this year we need the hot and carefree season more than ever. “These Summer Nights,” the new song by singer, songwriter, and producer Mïrändä sums up this feeling perfectly: “I come alive and I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be,” she[…]

SONG PICK: Declan Welsh and the Decadent West – Another One

Over a year into the pandemic, everyone has to say something about it. It is maybe our only truly collective experience, and artists of all disciplines are making it their subject too. Of course, we have heard plenty of pandemic-related songs by now, yet the aptly named “Another One” stands[…]

Abby Sage

SONG PICK: Abby Sage – Smoke Break (Video)

“Smoke Break” could be the prequel of Monday’s Song Pick “Carefree.” L.A.-via-Toronto singer/songwriter Abby Sage describes the time in a failing relationship before – maybe – relief sets in. When emotions are still heavy like the drums and synths in the song. But “Smoke Break” is not just a sad[…]

SONG PICK: Alex Frankel – Still Got It

“Still Got It,” the new single by Alex Frankel, is glistening with feel-good sparkles and is as much an affirmation as it is an optimistic view into a (pandemic-free) future. If the artist’s name doesn’t ring a bell, you simply need to listen to the fantastic track, and then it hits[…]
