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[…]

VIDEO FRIDAY: HOST – Taste of Your Love

The music by Irish singer/producer HOST is delightfully off-center, like if she took 80s-inspired, big chorus pop music and nudged it carefully over the edge. “Taste of Your Love” avoids the slick ways of current pop production and builds on classic, lush but slightly discomforting synth lines. This makes sense,[…]

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: Alice Phoebe Lou – Galaxies

Ahead of her album “Paper Castles”, scheduled for March 8, Alice Phoebe Lou delights her fans with a gorgeous surreal video for her latest single “Galaxies”. Alice explains that the track: “Happened on a rainy moody day in Berlin, my friend Harry Charles & I wrote this song while lying on[…]

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. Frontman Josh Noble explains about the single: “‘TV Dream’ was inspired by my grandparents; the idea that romance and dancing has lost its appeal[…]

SONG PICK: Stella Donnelly – Old Man (Video)

Australian singer/songwriter Stella Donnelly is a cheerful, charistmatic young woman as we could witness first hand at her Iceland Airwaves show where she was interviewed for The Current. It fits that her new song and video “Old Man” feels upbeat and light-hearted on the surface, but in fact it is[…]

SONG PICK: Sharon Van Etten – Seventeen

New York or in this case Brooklyn is a fast changing city. Sharon Van Etten arrived here in 2005 and in her moving new video “Seventeen” she shows us some of the venues or remains of venues that helped launching her career, juxtaposing it with growing up and changing herself[…]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Teen Commandments – Read Between The Lines

The beautifully lush and upbeat “Read Between The Lines” by Brooklyn-based synth-pop band Teen Commandments got a visual treatment that supports the funky and carefree vibe of the song perfectly. Makes us lust after those crazy Summer days again already! Singer Brett Moses provides the following about their music video: “Our bassist,[…]


L.A.-based singer/songwriter TRACE does restrained, unpretentious pop songs that are hard to push out of your head. Her musical interpretation of “Anxiety” does not hit you frontal, but sneaks up to you, just like those anxious feelings usually do. Even in the video, anxiety is personified by nice looking folks[…]
