SONG PICK: James Humphrys – Colours

So much exuberance and joy in “Colours”, the new single by Bristol-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist James Humphrys. The super groovy track sparkles and swirls like a freshly projected rainbow in the mid-summer sky. When asked about his new single James explains: “Colour explores the themes and thoughts surrounding that uncomfortable[…]

VIDEO PICKS OF THE WEEK: Allen Stone, Ellis, Gordi, I Break Horses

Allen Stone – Look Outside “Look Outside” features an ER doctor and her family, and got filmed while adhering to stay-in-place requirements. The video features the three (empty) cities Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York and is dedicated to all COVID-19 frontline workers. While not exactly a happy, fluffy escape,[…]

Alice Pisano

SONG PICK: Alice Pisano – Tears Will Set You Free

London-based, Italian singer/songwriter Alice Pisano has a powerful appeal for darker times: don’t hold back your emotions, because showing them just makes you only stronger. “Tears Will Set You Free” – her first song since her 2019 EP “Celebrate Life” – has a new fresh feel to it: less folk and more pop, without giving away Alice’s signature intimacy.

SONG PICK: Nation of Language – The Wall & I

Take the hypnotizing energy of LCD Soundsystem and the pop-anthem allure of The Temper Trap, add a heavy dose of 80s synth-pop inspiration and you get an idea for the kind of sound Brooklyn-based three-piece Nation of Language might make. Their newest single “The Wall & I” is the last[…]

I See Rivers

SONG PICK: I See Rivers – How

I See Rivers is the trio of three women, Eline, Gøril and Lili, from Norway who met at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. That for sure sounds like a promising start to a music career. Case in point: their latest song “How”, a glittering synth pop piece with enchanting vocal harmonies that draw you gently into a mythological world.

SONG PICK: Yard Arms – Mantra

Who isn’t looking for comfort and joy these days? For a little something to hold on to, to remind us that life is good and full of surprises. “Mantra”, the new single by Bristol-based alt-pop duo Yard Arms, can be taken quite literally as the gorgeous track can function as[…]


Q&A with Mïrändä

It is more than three years ago that we heard about Mïrändä for the first time and could not stop listening to her debut EP “Empire”. We were blown away, to say the least by the New York-based singer, songwriter, and producer and were excited to see her live at (almost) three of our showcases.

With three new songs and two videos released, we thought of this being a great opportunity to ask Miranda Johnson, who makes music as Mïrändä a few questions. Be sure to check out her latest video – entirely filmed by the artist herself – before you read on!

I Am Snow Angel

SONG PICK: I Am Snow Angel – Tower Of Song

While at glamglare we usually prefer original music, we are also long-time fans of Julie Kathryn aka I Am Snow Angel and if covers are all we get from her for the time being, we have to make an exception. “Tower Of Song” is a beautiful song from Leonard Cohen’s 1988 album “I’m Your Man” about life as songwriter and Julie quotes it as a deep inspiration. Her production has a more acoustic touch than past work, but this is still this unique I Am Snow Angel feel to it.

SONG PICK: Ludic – Love Me Like

“Love Me Like”, the new single by art-pop trio Ludic is as joyful as it is irresistible. This is feel-good music that pushes even the darkest clouds aside to make room for a little sunshine to breakthrough and dance to. While “Love Me Like” is not all roses lyrically, it[…]

VIDEO PICKS OF THE WEEK: High Waisted, in earnest, LONA, Morgan Harper-Jones

High Waisted – Modern Love “Modern Love” is the latest single off High Waisted‘s new album, “Sick of Saying Sorry”, out May 22nd and it got a cool video treatment. Its creators Jenni Yang & Logan Seaman say about the inspiration behind the video: “Jenni found a quote that says “to[…]
