SONG PICK: Slowlights – Overgrown

Who ever pays attention to an artist’s Facebook ABOUT page, particularly the “Artists We Also Like Part”? Well, Slowlights definitely got me with their EP “I Try So Hard” but sealed the deal with mentioning ‘Rod Stewart’… that’s rather… unusual and so cool because… that story is way too long[…]

SONG PICK: Hero Fisher – Sylvie (Video)

“Sylvie”, the new song by London-based singer/songwriter Hero Fisher is one of those tracks that suck you in and don’t let you go until the last note. It starts quietly with a gently plucked guitar and then slowly morphs into an emotional cinematic finale. “Don’t let them make you leave[…]

SONG PICK: Raveen – Always

“Always” offers a beautiful melody, warm and soulful vocals, somber undertones laced with an overall optimistic vibe. “Always” is the debut single and title-track of the self-titled album by Montréal-based three-piece Raveen.

EXCITED ABOUT: Slowdive – Slowdive

Slowdives’s dreamy shoegaze is the kind of music that lifts you up and carries you away on soft, thick guitar layers. The English five-piece called it quits for 22 years, but here they are again with an excellent self-titled album. Listen to “Slowdive” on Spotify or Apple Music:

SONG PICK: From Apes to Angels – Gift Tag

From Apes To Angels is a synth pop duo from England who name a slew of exciting electro-pop acts of the last few decades as their inspiration and I would add Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark and Ladytron to the list. But their latest track “Gift Tag” stands well on[…]

SONG PICK: The Felix – Still Holding On

Riding on an ethereal, electronic synth pop wave, “Still Holding On” convinces with its optimistically melancholic vibe, the soothing vocals and its re-assuring dynamic. “Still Holding On” is the new single by New York-based duo The Felix who formed only last year in Lower Manhattan and back then successfully debuted[…]

SONG PICK: Roxiny – 9 Months

“9 Month” is the duration of the abusive relationship Brooklyn singer/songwriter Roxiny sings about in her solo debut track, a slow building indie pop anthem. The choice of topic is no coincidence: Roxiny actively engages in supporting women and girls who have experienced abuse and leads music workshops for GEMS.[…]

SONG PICK: Spirit Award – Fields

“Fields”, the first single from Spirit Award‘s upcoming album “Neverending” (10/06/17), delights with a dynamic flow, lovely synths, earthy vocals and an overall optimistic vibe. This is also what one can expect from the record for which Spirit Award credit the death of a family member, anxiety, a robbery, and the ending[…]

SONG PICK: Sgrow – Feel Something

Here is a new one by Norwegian electronic duo Sgrow. “Feel Something” has the same chills-inducing intensity as its predecessor “Is Anybody Where They Want to Be” plus some Aphex-Twin-inspired synth craziness. But it is very much Vilde Nupen’s haunted vocals that stop you in your tracks when this song[…]

SONG PICK: courtship. – Perfect People

One would assume that Los Angeles is full of either “Perfect People” or people who strive to be perfect. The latest track by L.A. duo courtship tackles this topic in a lighthearted, upbeat way: in the end you are happier if you accept who you are. Listen to “Prefect People”,[…]
