Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Naropa – If Only While I’m Sleeping

Lush guitars as well as rich and raspy vocals with a slight tremolo in it, set the mood for “If Only While I’m Sleeping”, which starts out a tad bit melancholic yet comes around in the chorus, when things start to look brighter and more optimistic. Sonically the track captures perfectly what[…]

SONG PICK: Brezy – Riptide

“Riptide” is a pop song full of surprises – it is just fabulous how it evolves from minimal bass, beat and vocals into a sing along anthem. If you are – like me – turned off by the predictability of many pop songs, this one is for you. Brezy, aka[…]


Hardly anybody else does danceable, carefree summer sound better than acts from Los Angeles. Add LA duo HØØNCH to the growing list of bands, creating highly infectious, instantly likable synth-pop. With “Lost 2.0” HØØNCH deliver a shiny feel-good track with a funky bass , 80s drum lines and synths-laden hooks that makes the[…]

SONG PICK: Young Summer – Alright

Young Summer is the project of Washington, D.C. based musician Bobbie Allen, whose new song “Alright” is our Song Pick of the Day. “Alright” captures the moments of uncertainty in the early stages of a potential relationship with its ethereal guitar lines and the swirling synths. Young Summer will release[…]

SONG PICK: The Hazy Seas – Kite Dodging

“Kite Dodging”, by Mid-Western surf rock quartet The Hazy Seas, seems to be made for all of us who can not make it to the beach and experience Summer bliss first hand. The shimmering surf rock guitars make the glittering sun spots on top of the waves come sonically alive and help[…]

SONG PICK: Babygirl – Overbored

Babygirl are Kirsten Clark and Cameron Breithaupt from Toronto, Canada. Their debut single “Overbored” features guitar melodies, a steady beat and Kirsten’s restrained and, well, bored vocals. It is a great track that creates appetite for more: fortunately, they have an EP ready for release later this summer. Watch the video to[…]

SONG PICK: Pure Youth – Other Side

Pure Youth, a four piece based in London, make beautifully melodic indie rock, with a catchiness that is impossible to resist. Their latest single “Other Side” is no exception!  Dave Hibbert (vocals, guitar) provides insight to what the track is about: it “is about longing to be back in a good place in your life- with a particular person, or a literal place that means a lot to them. The track is a message to those that have had an effect on me in some way, not necessarily within love, but more so with friendship and how people can just come and go.” Definitely can relate to that!
