SONG PICK: Leitbur – Antique Travelers [SINGLE & VIDEO PREMIERE]

Just in time for the friendlier months of the year arrives “Antique Travelers”, a romantic synthpop sparkler that is as catchy as it is happiness-inducing.”Antique Travelers” evokes the glorious feelings of strolling through a bright, sun-drenched landscape while enjoying a mild breeze from the ocean which is not too far-fetched given that this is the brand[…]

VIDEO: Lena Fayre – Cry

Watch Lena Fayre’s icy video for “Cry”, her latest song featuring her trademark mix of dark and catchy pop vibes. Lena dances in the snow, pets a white snake (maybe this one?) and I am not sure what happens in the end. Listen to “Cry on Soundcloud”

VIDEO: FEWS – 100 Goosebumps

Even before heading to this year’s SXSW, I knew that FEWS would be one of the most exciting bands to currently come out of the UK*, and having seen them live not only once but twice confirmed this guess. We chose “The Zoo” as Song Pick of the Day earlier this year,[…]

VIDEO: Zuster – Do U Want Me

Watch the Owens sisters Andie and Maggie, aka Zuster, light up the bleak surroundings with their beautiful harmonies. “Do U Want Me” is an electro pop song with a sudden soaring, meandering chorus, which gives the track a nice edge. I’m curious what the two are up to next. Listen[…]

Hindsight is 20/20. In that light, New York duo Lilly Wolf map out a list of  dreadful mistakes, showing what events led to them. The track “Terrible Mistake” is from their 2015 album “Deleted Scenes” (Apple Music | Spotify), for which the video is also a good metaphor: some of the[…]

VIDEO: Oyinda – Never Enough

“Watch me move like I’m up on a big screen” Oyinda sings in her new single “Never Enough”. Take the advice and blow up this video on the biggest screen you can play YouTube videos on – you won’t regret it.

VIDEO: Shadow Monster – Out Of My Mind

Shadow Monster is the stage name of Gillian Visco, a singer/songwriter from New York, who is also an actor in theater and film, an experience she used in the new video for “Out of my Mind”. There is a theater company behaving strangely, a cemetery (Green-Wood?) and tears are shed.[…]

VIDEO: Francine Thirteen – Lady Mary, The Lord and Spark

Since FKA twigs’ brand of audiovisual experimentation has moved closer to the mainstream, there is room for something new: Francine Thirteen tackles the topic of female archetypes in a new EP due later this year. The video “Lady Mary, The Lord and Spark” is full of symbolism and feels more[…]

VIDEO: The Dose – Cold Hands

Compelling visuals, interesting narrative with a touch of suspense even, directed with a decisive artistic vision, band mates who don’t need to hide (and luckily they don’t!) and on top of it all a crazy catchy indie-rock song: “Cold Hands”, the first video by the Los Angeles rock duo The Dose, delivers all that and[…]
