Joseph of Mercury is the stage name of Toronto-based singer/songwriter Jospeh W. Salusbury and his new track “Angel” is the sort of big love song that you could play while proposing to the love of your life. Joseph of Mercury has the vocal chops to deliver this song just right[…]

VIDEO: Hero Fisher – Push The Boat Out

Super-8 amateur footage invokes an immediate feeling of nostalgia and melancholy (one wonders if the HD material shot today will have the same effect in twenty years). It tells stories of long gone moments of happiness, of a time that – in hindsight – feels easy and simple. London-based singer/songwriter[…]

SONG PICK: Alexander Wolfe – Breaking The Fall

“Breaking The Fall” by British singer/songwriter Alexander Wolfe is optimistic and re-assuring even during the track’s darkest, melancholic and restless moments. “Breaking The Fall” is infectious and utterly gorgeous! After having released two full length albums, Alexander Wolfe experienced a serious set-back with his third one, yet luckily decided to[…]

SONG PICK: Rivita – While The Love Is Gone

Rivita is a London via New Delhi musician, who does pretty much everything herself: singing, producing, recording as well as artwork and videos. With that skill set she is involved into many projects and collaborations, but her music stands well on its own: “While The Love Is Gone” is a[…]

Excited about: Gangly – Gangly EP (and Iceland Airwaves 2017)

Today Iceland Airwaves announced their 2017 lineup and local band Gangly is part of it. They also just released their debut EP, which may come as a surprise, because singer Jófríður Ákadóttir has probably the most iconic voice in Iceland – after you-know-who. Anyway, if you can, go see them[…]

“I’m just a dirty little secret and you want to keep it” croons Rich Stephenson on his latest single “Secret” and it is impossible to isolate the intriguing lyrics from the enchanting hook. “Secret” is simply irresistible in its subtle catchiness.

SONG PICK: Dog In The Snow – Child

Helen Ganya Brown, aka Dog In The Snow is back with a not-so-subtle message: what if every woman refuses to have children until humans treat each other with decency? Helen explains: So this song is my tongue-in-cheek and desperate attempt at blackmailing humanity as a path to a sustainable future[…]

SONG PICK: The Boxing – Tame

“Tame” is a glorious sonic inebriation of dark, brooding undertones and sparkles of joy. The new single by British psych-rock trio The Boxing is as appealing as their previous releases. With only 2:44 minutes, the track is surprisingly short, especially for a genre that likes to dwell on a theme. There[…]

SONG PICK: Polartropica – Olympia (Video)

Polartropica is the musical outfit of L.A.-based artist Ihui Cherise Wu. Fitting to the intrinsic contradiction of her band name, Ihui fuses diverse instruments and sounds into futuristic, spaced-out pop music with a generally uplifting vibe, inspired by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics trailer. Listen to “Olympia”, our Song Pick of[…]

SONG PICK: Jinka – Trash From The Past

I think Romanian singer/producer Jinka is up to something here: somehow she manages to fuse a shrill where-is-the-stop-button synth intro with guitars and vocals into a coherent and catchy pop song that you just want to hear again. Jinka’s debut song “Trash From The Past” has the rather futuristic vibe[…]
