NEW MUSIC: Zoey Lily – More (out today)

London-based singer/songwriter Zoey Lily has a way to write and even more so, sing pop songs that go under your skin. After last fall’s “Nothing” she released “More”, a track that “is about the flaws of the seemingly perfect and the expectations that come with it.” Musically the track has[…]

NEW MUSIC: There’s Talk – Give It Up

“Give It Up” seems to float on layers of synths, guitars, sparse beats and ethereal vocals. There’s Talk, the three-piece around Olivia Lee from Oakland, California may have found the perfect formula for electronic dream pop. Their second EP “Bathed Water Moon” comes out next Friday on Bandcamp. Listen to[…]

SONG PICK: Isadora – Visions

Singer/producer Isadora came to London from the U.S. to make music – not an easy endeavor in this super-competitive music capital. No wonder how she came up with the chorus for her new single: “I got visions, Man, but not a single plan.” The song reflects on her difficult situation[…]

NEW MUSIC: John.K – Best of Me

JOHN.K is onto something by giving us “Best of Me”, a super smooth, laid-back and highly enjoyable pop number. “Best of Me” is one of these songs that make you want to contemplate life, and then jump to your feet and start dancing thanks to its positive, happiness inducing vibe.[…]

NEW MUSIC: Bryde – To Be Brave (Album announcement)

London-based singer/songwriter Bryde has been winning me over with reflective but intense indie rock for almost two years and I’m happy to report that her debut full-length “Like And Island” is ready to be released on April 14 (pre-order here). The slow-building opening track “To Be Brave” gives you a[…]

SONG PICK: Earhart – A Cross

“A Cross” is the debut single by London-based indie rock group Earhart and is incredibly alluring, with its ebb and flow of instrumentation and full band vs minimalist approach. The band formed in 2017 and turned the obsessive home-studio demo-ing of frontman Joe Tennant into a live act with Daniel Green[…]

NEW MUSIC: Hana Brooks – Used To Be

Hana Brooks is a singer/songwriter from London, but for “Used To Be” she went to the West Coast to infuse some L.A. vibes into the song. What came out is a classic pop song that immediately sticks without trying too hard. Watch the video to “Used To Be” on YouTube:[…]

NEW MUSIC: Me Not You – Surfers (EP Announcement)

Here’s another stunner by Me Not You, ahead of the release of their new EP “Reckoning 2” on March 2. They often used it as the opener at their U.S. tour last fall supporting Gary Numan. I just love the opening lines of the song: royal blue ocean dunes and[…]

SONG PICK: Fifi Rong – Awake (EP Announcement)

Our Song Pick of the Day has a wonderful flow with its smooth synth lines and almost whispered vocals, like the stream of consciousness in the state between being awake and asleep. “Awake” is the title track of the upcoming 4-track EP by London-based singer/producer Fifi Rong, due out next[…]

NEW MUSIC: Oklou – Friendless

Not much to say about it. Just watch the video and turn up the volume. This is Marylou Mayniel from Paris, France who goes by the name Oklou. A six track EP is coming out on May 16. Watch “Friendless” on YouTube: Listen to the track on Spotify or Apple[…]
