VIDEO: Vaness Alegacy – Change of Heart

Watch Canadian singer/songwriter Vaness Alegacy go though a “Change of Heart”, expressed in a big dramatic and powerful pop song:

SONG PICK: Von Sell – Miss Me

Enjoy your Sunday with our Song Pick of the Day by Brooklyn singer/songwriter Von Sell. His latest single “Miss Me” feels like a sunny morning full of promise, but there is some melancholy beneath it. After all, “Did you miss me?” is a laden question. Listen to “Miss Me” now:

SONG PICK: Lir Shilton – Home

Back in summer London-based singer songwriter Lir Shilton enchanted me with her beautiful cover of Air’s “Cherry Blossom Girl”. Now she is about to release a new album “Nothing but a Ghost” on December 9 and a single “Home”, a slow burning rock ballad where Lir backs her mellow, melancholic[…]

SONG PICK: Desert Planes – Together Apart

“Together Apart” the new single by London two-piece Desert Planes opens with an almost overwhelmingly wistfulness but then the drums pick up speed, guitars chime in and the track continues on an uplifting note and takes on an optimistic vibe.

London-based artist DrawnSword creates music rooted in classic songwriting with a hip-hop edge and electronic textures.

DrawnSword builds[…]

SONG PICK: Au/Ra – Concrete Jungle

Au/Ra has spent much of her life on two very different islands, Ibiza and Antigua, which are both party and dream vacation destinations. However, her debut single “Concrete Jungle” is about life in the city, where is “Amazon Prime, the new world power”. The song does not veer to much[…]

VIDEO: L.A. Girlfriend – Subliminal Fantastic

I’ve been a big fan of “Neon Grey”, the wonderfully restrained album that L.A. Girlfriend aka Sydney Banta put out earlier this year. Now she released a video for closing track “Subliminal Fantastic”, which shows not much more than Sydney dancing in the desert – but that already is absolutely[…]

3 Is A Band: Moji & The Midnight Sons

There are a good 220 musicians announced in the line-up for Iceland Airwaves ’16 and I listened to the music of every single act scheduled to play. As it usually is the case with music festivals, they spread out the news over the months and then weeks leading to the festival. So[…]
