SONG PICK: Vania – Wonder

Today, New York-based singer/songwriter Vania releases her second single “Wonder,” an introspective song about the unexpected side effects of having been ill. Don’t expect her to be quiet, though: “Wonder” is an epic, cinematic piece of electro-pop in the veins of 90s trance bands like Hybrid or Asura. For Vania this is an important part of recovery.

SONG PICK: Temples – Paraphernalia

Big names around the track threat to almost drowning its beauty but this would be a shame because the newest single by psych-rock quartet Temples is infectious – in the best of ways. “Paraphernalia” swoons and swirls in their 60s and psychedelic-infused signature style and will be a sure-fire hit.[…]

Temme Scott

SONG PICK: Temme Scott – A Lot To Lose

Pop songs often deal with breakups and loss, but things are actually going pretty well for L.A.-based singer/songwriter Temme Scott. Sure, there is a bit of anxiety in “A Lot To Lose” too – after all it is 2020 and the next bad news may just be around the corner, but until then why not just enjoy the moment. Musically, Temme gives us an upbeat track with just enough grit to keep it grounded in reality.

SONG PICK: Better Person – Something to Lose

Better Person is the project of Polish, Berlin-based musician Adam Byczkowski, who just dropped the first single “Something to Lose” from his equally titled upcoming album. The single is like heading back to the 80s, when Spandau Ballet, Style Council, and the likes were dominating the pop charts. “Something to[…]


SONG PICK: KiNG MALA – sugarblind

Is it a sugar rush? Is it love? For L.A. via El Paso musician Areli Castro aka KiNG MALA these feelings can be similar and are a good base for an upbeat, sing-along pop track. But “sugarblind” plays out differently than you might think: all this sweetness is made truly delicious with good dose of grit through glitchy vocals, distorted guitars and effects.

SONG PICK: Lontalius – Someone Will Be There For You

Hope is as essential for us as oxygen. Without hope, our lives become lifeless and empty. We crave the silver lining on the horizon, the light at the end of the tunnel, and a promise like “Someone Will Be There For You”. This is also what New Zealand-based singer, songwriter,[…]

SONG PICK: Yodashe – Take Time

Time is precious, but often the needs and distractions of the moment make us give it away with little in return. London-based producer and singer Yodashe invites you to spend three minutes and 37 seconds with with her for a special audiovisual experience about time. With an intricate electronic production her debut single “Take Time” shows how something can develop if you just give it time and patience. Like an abstract painting in the beginning the song challenges you to understand its structure, but after an unexpected drop the sonic layers fall more and more into place and fill the space with glittering brightness. In Yodashe’s own words: “It’s a statement piece. If you stick with it to the end you will be rewarded.”
