SONG PICK: Mesita – Deadchannel

A couple of days ago, I heard “Deadchannel” on the radio and knew instantly that I wanted to feature the beautifully brooding track. “Deadchannel” is the newest single by singer/songwriter and producer James Cooley who makes music under the moniker Mesita. Despite its sinister title, “Deadchannel” offers a surprisingly bright melody,[…]

SONG PICK: KYOTI – Restart The World

With “Restart The World” KYOTI, an art pop electronic three-piece from London, released a track that is equally infectious dance pop as it is hypnotic chillout music. 80s synths sounds are prevalent in “Restart The World” yet the overall funky vibe is irresistible and just so good! Together with the easy-going[…]

SONG PICK: Spellling – Under The Sun (Video)

“Under The Sun”, the new song by Chrystia Cabral who goes by Spellling is quite something to wrap your mind around. It starts with bubbling Kraftwerk-y synths, then shape-shifts multiple times, but is always held together by Chrystia’s beguiling vocals. After “Haunted Waters” she chose a much more upbeat topic[…]

VIDEO: Larkins – TV Dream

Manchester is brimming with cool bands, and guitar-pop band Larkins are no exception. The inspired band video invites us to come out and see them live.

Singer/producer Rivita has come around in the world before settling in Brooklyn – for now. Like for most people, her life is one of ups and downs and in her new song “Her Ghost”, she calls for embracing that flow and not letting yourself spiral down into becoming your own[…]

SONG PICK: Doomsquad – General Hum

Without even listening to the end of “General Hum”, I already started to create today’s #glamglarepick feature because I am a huge fan of Toronto-based sibling-trio Doomsquad. With “General Hum” they not only released yet another fantastic electro-psych single but also an electrifying video, directed by Zak Tatham. Both promote[…]

SONG PICK: Drinker – Something I Want (Video)

Drinker is the bi-coastal duo of Aaron Mendelsohn and Ariel Loh, who create elegant, reflective electronic pop songs. Their latest song “Something I Want” finds them in a more experimental mood with sparse beats and glitchy, 8-bit synths. The song is enjoyed best together with the artful video clip that[…]


Sunday morning breakfast, while listening to Spotify’s “Discover Weekly” which basically follows glamglare’s musical taste closely, one song stood out: “What is Thom Yorke doing in this mix?” Listening more  intently, it became evident that these were female vocals but in the singing style Radiohead’s frontman is famous for.
