SONG PICK: New Luna – Swarms

“If things had been easier” repeats Tommy Deedigan, vocalist of Manchester dream-pop alt-rock quartet New Luna, yet nothing is easier than to instantly fall in love with the frontman’s vocal delivery and the moody, extremely appealing track. “Swarms” is as melancholic and wistful as it is jazzy, with a subtle, playful[…]

SONG PICK: Laveda – Dream. Sleep.

“Dream. Sleep.” is a shoegaze/dream pop track with picture-perfect execution, from the massive guitars over the hazy vocals right up to the title. It is the new song by Laveda, the duo of Ali Genevich and Jake Brooks from upstate New York. They used to be much quieter as one[…]

SONG PICK: Guest Singer – My Parallel

Guest Singer aka Jake Cope is an artist/project I came back to listening numerous times. Initially, the debut single “New Experience” totally got me already but “My Parallel” seals the deal to finally feature the gorgeous track. Both singles are irresistible in a subtle yet intense way, the one that[…]

SONG PICK: Molina – Venus (Video)

Bright and glittering, with dark undertones gliding through the music like shadows of clouds moving fast over blue skies, that is “Venus”, the new synth pop track of classic beauty by Danish producer/singer Molina. The song is enhanced with the visuals created by French artist Diane Guais, who gives us[…]

SONG PICK: Glassio – Age of Experience

“Age of Experience” is the name of Brooklyn-based Glassio‘s just released EP as well as its title track. Having listened through the totally stunning EP multiple times, I am tempted to describe the title track as the one that sums up the other five as well. The single offers an[…]

SONG PICK: Zoey Lily – Never Getting Better at Losing You

London-based musician Zoey Lily has carved her own style of pop music with an elegant, restrained production and intimate vocals full of vulnerability. Her new song “Never Getting Better at Losing You” is about a complicated relationship and you can picture Zoey singing it alone in her bedroom, with resignation[…]

SONG PICK: Close Talker – Half Past Nine

Canadian indie rockers Close Talker evolved and fine-tuned their sound from their first full-length record “Flux” (among my top 10 albums of 2014) to their latest single “Half Past Nine”, honing their craft and focusing on what they do so well. “Half Past Nine” features Will Quiring‘s vocals beautifully, while[…]

VIDEO FRIDAY: Dakota – Four Leaf Clover

When watching “Four Leaf Clover” you can feel the fresh ocean breeze in your face as the members of Dakota walk through the landscape (presumably) of the Netherlands. The song is from their new album “Here’s The 101 On How To Disappear“. Watch here: Connect with Dakota on Facebook, Instagram[…]

SONG PICK: Little May – Apples (Video)

Australian band Little May is back as a duo with a new track “Apples” from their upcoming album “Blame My Body”, out on May 3. The song – less sweet than you may remember the band from their 2015 releases – is a refreshingly straightforward three-minute indie rock song with[…]
