VIDEO PICKS: Babehoven, Charm of Finches, Kings of Convenience

Babehoven – Annie’s Shoes We will have more about Maya Bon, aka Babehoven, on Friday when her EP “Nastavi, Calliope” comes out. But the colorful, deep-sea-themed stop-go video created by Phoebe Jane Heart deserves a separate mention in our weekly video roundup. Watch the video now: Charm of Finches –[…]

Sam Blacky

SONG PICK: Sam Blacky – No More

Bring the heat on! “No More,” the new song by producer and DJ Sam Blacky does not only transport you immediately to a hot summer night dance party but also infuses you with a hefty dose of positivity, something we can all use after the past year. In Sam’s own[…]

SONG PICK: Johnny Lloyd – Joypolis

Some artists make themselves rare, and only occasionally appear live or release new material. Not so British songwriter, singer, and film composer Johnny Lloyd, who gears up for his third solo album La La La out July 16th, 2021 via Xtra Mile Recordings. (Pre-order now.) Providing us with another taste[…]

Slaney Bay

SONG PICK: Slaney Bay – Talking About You

Slaney Bay are the four friends Caitlin Whitley (lead vocals and guitar), William Nicola-Thompson (lead guitar), Joel Martin (backing vocals and bass) and Beth Stacey (drums). They have been making music together for a while, but Slaney Bay is the start of a new endeavor, and their debut single makes[…]


SONG PICK: Jessicka – Mirrorball Midnight

The beautiful new song by Vancouver-based musician Jessicka is a sprawling synth-pop indulgence. Turn up the volume, let yourself fall into the glittering soundscapes, and it becomes clear why the song is called “Mirrorball Midnight.” Listen to our Song Pick of the day on your favorite streaming service of below[…]

SONG PICK: Shady Groves – Smoulder

Michigan artist collective Shady Groves landed on our radar in 2016. Their guitar-driven sound instantly resonated with us back then and still does. Throughout the years, the two founding members Adam Fitzgerald and Dylan Caron, expanded the band as seemed fit, but with life throwing its curveballs (or lemons?), they[…]

Elaine HD

SONG PICK: Spaces of Disappearance – Bad Things

Elaine HD aka Spaces of Disappearance is fed up with holding back and is ready for all those “Bad Things” we were supposed to avoid for so long. The Barcelona-via-Chicago singer and producer, known for songs on the darker side of synth-pop, turns to hard-hitting electronics in the style of[…]

SONG PICK: SILT – I Always Need A Break

Who doesn’t need a break, at times? But Always? There must be a story behind the new single by Melbourne-based indie-rock trio SILT. What inspired the utterly gorgeous “I Always Need A Break?” The band’s Jess Polain explains: Some people just have a way of making you feel small and[…]

VIDEO PICKS: Ada Lea, Janita, Salt Ashes, The Zephyr Bones

Ada Lea – hurt Montreal-based singer/songwriter Alexandra Levy aka Ada Lea is very clear in both lyrics and visuals of her new song “hurt.” Set in a post-apocalyptic landscape, she seems to be stuck in a wrong moment, and all she knows is that it will pass. Alexandra says: “I[…]


SONG PICK: Morly – Dance To You

We saw Katy Morley aka Morly live in 2015 at SXSW for the first time. There she played an electronic set with a drummer, who jokingly complained that it was nearly impossible to play her programmed beats on a real drum set. Since then, a lot has happened in Katy’s[…]

SONG PICK: Silvertwin – The Night Is Ours

British five-piece Silvertwin create music that is less nostalgic than seems to come from a different era altogether. Think Paul McCartney when he and his wife started the band Wings, or when Jeff Lynne and his mates formed the Electric Light Orchestra. It is hard to believe that “The Night[…]

Fifi Rong

SONG PICK: Fifi Rong – Dream On

When love does not work out, dreams can be all you are left with. With her latest song, London-based singer and producer Fifi Rong takes you to the world between sleep and awakeness, where reality and dreams merge into a soundscape full of beauty and melancholy. “All I know, I’m[…]

SONG PICK: Signe – Enough

We came across Chicago-born, European transplant Signe late last year with her single “Cry Wolf,” and are excited to feature her new song today. The Paris-based pop-musician raises substantial questions in “Enough.” She asks “What do you want? Is it enough?” a question, we probably all have asked ourselves multiple[…]


SONG PICK: Giungla – Little Problem (ft. Jessica Winter)

Today, singer, guitarist and producer Ema Drei aka Giungla has released her second EP “Turbulence” after 2016’s “Camo.” The latest single is the hard-hitting “Little Problem,” which shows off her unique way to fuse heavy guitar work with smacking electronic beats. The track was recorded a while ago in London[…]
