SONG PICK: Future Jr. – Sentimental Trick

It seems as if “Sentimental Trick” wears its effect on its sleeve because the track is beautifully tender and one could argue to almost being tricked by how good this feels. “Sentimental Trick” is the second single by Matthew Nainby who goes Future Jr., based out of Brisbane, Australia. Lyrically[…]

SONG PICK: May Roosevelt – Pa

The new album “Junea” by Greek musician May Roosevelt is full of relaxing, inspiring but also rousing soundscapes. Put it on headphones and the world somehow feels like a better place. The single “Pa” is an excellent example for this: almost an instrumental, May’s vocals blend in with the layers[…]

SONG PICK: Mansionair – Astronaut (Something About Your Love)

Not since “Instant Crush“, a collaboration by Julian Casablancas and Daft Punk has a vocoder been used so effectively and sort of topical as in “Astronaut”, the new glorious single by Mansionair. As a long time fan of the Sydney-based three-piece (SXSW 2015), I am overjoyed that Mansionair’s latest single[…]

SONG PICK: Silk Cinema – Disappear

Silk Cinema is a new duo from London, which has released so far a couple of songs. Their second single “Disappear” is a chill, loungey track about the desire to lose yourself. “We’re looking for something to make us disappear” the lyrics go and most of us probably have had[…]

SONG PICK: Sunday Store – See the Sunshine

“See the Sunshine” sports 80s synths and catchy disco beats, 90s grunge inspired vocals, and a hip and stylish electronic production. There is also suspense and urgency in this infectious new track by Sunday Store. Behind the moniker stands singer/songwriter/producer Sergey Savin, who exchanged Saint-Petersburg with Berlin, where he is mingling with the[…]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Evelinn Trouble – Sunset Everytime

Evelinn Trouble takes being an artist seriously, frequently reinventing herself and her music. No album is like the next, surprising her ever-growing fan base with lo-fi pop, to industrial doom rock or Motown esthetics. Her latest song “Sunset Everytime” is something else again and it is awesome! You can easily[…]

SONG PREMIERE: Sera Eke – Coup! Coup! Coup!

Back in June, London-based artist Sera Eke surprised us with a gripping, self-produced video to her cinematic debut single “The Space Between Us”. We still don’t know much more about her, except that she is going to release a debut EP on November 10 and we are happy to premiere[…]

SONG PICK: Kim Logan – Hitch Your Wagon

The psychedelic, slightly 60s and totally sensual vibe of “Hitch Your Wagon” makes for one irresistible track. “Hitch Your Wagon” is the latest single by songwriter, opera singer and performance artist Kim Logan, originating from Florida and now based out of Nashville. The track got released together with “Ladyboy” another fantastic song,[…]

SONG PICK: The Rigs – The Hunted

Caitlin Parrott and TJ Stafford are collaborating as The Rigs for a few years and are ready to release their debut album “The World On Fire” on November 17. “The Hunted” is a dark and cinematic electro pop track that grips you with thick, gritty layers of synths and guitars[…]

SONG PICK: Donna Missal – Transformer

Singer/Songwriter Donna Missal released a batch of head-turning soul-inspired songs last year before she kind of disappeared. Now we know Donna has spent time at the West Coast, where she engaged into fruitful collaborations. But she’s back with a new track, which heads into a new direction without losing connection[…]

OFFSTAGE: Q&A with High Waisted

On the heel of a terrific split single “Free Throw” & “Firebomb”, a hot video and an extensive North American tour, culminating in a headline show at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade NYC, we thought it only adequate to learn a little more about High Waisted. To set the mood, let’s listen to[…]
