SONG PICK: Shells – Jailbird

“Not gonna be a jailbird anymore” sings Shells in her new song “Jailbird”. And the track indeed does not evoke a prison at all: it is light as air, using many different instruments and sounds with Shells’ voice floating over it. The U.K. singer is working on her debut EP[…]

3 Is A Band: Saint Slumber

Her debut EP “Park”[…]
