Song Pick of the Day





Are not first ideas often the best anyway? Like the song title “Vs and Gs” which initially was only a demo title and a stand-in for “vocals and guitars”. With “Vs and Gs” London trio DANCEHALL deliver one incredibly infectious gem of a rock-song. Pulsating drums, pronounced guitars and edgy vocals create an urgent vibe[…]

SONG PICK: Bonzai – I Did

Bonzai was born in Indiana, raised in Dublin and now lives in London. Still, that doesn’t fully explain how she conceived a track like “I Did”. If you’re starting to get bored by the relentless parade of “New R&B” music, here is a way out. Where exactly this will lead,[…]

SONG PICK: Laurel – Hurricane

London-based singer/songwriter Laurel does everything herself: writing, performing, producing and mixing. You would not guess this from her latest song “Hurricane”, a rich and powerful but still intimate rock song. And then there are Laurel’s unique dark and breathy vocals that can give you the chills. Her debut EP “Park”[…]

SONG PICK: Votaries – Succumb

Votaries is the new project of Jackson Scott who took the music world by storm with his debut album “Melbourne” and the critically acclaimed follow-up “Sunshine Redux”. He now gathered three fellow musicians and together they make music as Votaries. Listening to their first single “Succumb”, I’d say they mellowed Jackson[…]

SONG PICK: Tiny Dinosaurs – Sit and Stare

“Sit and Stare” aptly summarizes the new EP “Awake” by Julie Jay, who records as Tiny Dinosaurs: it has a reflective feel to it, with an undercurrent of melancholy beneath the bright synth and guitar lines. Julie, who emerged from a long illness, is based in L.A. and found remarkable[…]

SONG PICK: Cape Cub – Lifeline

English singer/songwriter Cape Cub aka Chad Male drops one single per month until the release of his second EP “6AM” due October 21st. Today, it is the single “Lifeline” and it is another instantly alluring piece of music. “Lifeline” is a bit like walking through a tunnel, with dark spots but the end and[…]

SONG PICK: Kelly Lee Owens – CBM

“CBM” stands for colors, beauty and motion and London producer Kelly Lee Owens told The Fader that it is inspired by the experience of seeing the earth from space. Of course she has not been in space herself, but this subtle techno track conveys the feeling of weightlessness and disorientation[…]
