Swedish band Melby releasedthis beautiful single a couple of weeks ago and here it is how the quartet describes it: «Old Life consists of an upbeat, sort of entangled, rhythmic foundation, playing against gloomy and almost dreamlike melodies on top, it sounds a bit like flying, looking down at the landscapes and people passing by beneath you. You’re flying fast, but there’s also this peacefulness to it. That feeling ties into the lyrical theme, that revolves around moving to another country, and leaving your old life behind.» Enjoy!
Los Angels act Finn Harry made his debut with this tremendous tune. The 23 year old artist mixes acid guitars with a great hook, electronic backgrounds with punk attitude. It will remind you the crazy world of Beck or the golden pop made in Black Keys. Well, enjoy!
Australian band The Lazy Eyes released this mind-bending single and you cannot miss this vintage psychedelic trip. «We always end the live shows with this one, it’s so fun and loose,» guys said about the tune. «Even if our pedalboards have melted and our amps have caught fire, we always trust this song to bring it home.» Enjoy!
American/French duo Freedom Fry released a couple of weeks ago this electro-pop track. «Le Point Zéro is about beginning again and not viewing setbacks as failures», said the band about this charming track. Enjoy!
Now led by Julia Daigle and Pierre-Luc Bégin, Paupière is a glamorous and flamboyant duo from Montreal with an underground sensuality that creates pop music that is both naïve and profound. Mixing English synth-pop and French chanson, the “neo-romantic” duo lets us hear echoes of Human League, Deux or Depeche Mode in their work. Their intertwined voices sing the adolescent and hedonistic romanticism of the 80’s as much as our contemporary disenchantment. Here’s their last single, enjoy!
London based artist Poppy Ajudha comes back with this hypnotic single. Here’s what she said about it: «Self-directing was really fun, I’m a control freak so it was great to get stuck into all the facets of making a music video. Choosing the team, the makeup looks, directing the styling ideas, writing the narrative, working out how to build the set. It definitely felt like a challenge to direct, star-in and perform choreographed moves for the first time but I love to push myself and am really glad I did.» Enjoy!
Australian trio Daste released this single that you cannot miss. Callum MacDonald from the band explains :«This song came about shortly after everyone was coming to terms with the severe necessity of isolation. Not being able to leave the house forced us to start writing songs and ideas on our own which we could eventually work on together. I immediately felt as if I had writer’s block and decided to try making a beat every day in an attempt to break my creative struggle. ‘somebody like you’ was day 26 I believe…I had the beat, chords, verse and a pre-chorus and stopped there. A few weeks later, the three of us were able to get together and work on the ideas we all brought with us. Within a few listens of this particular idea, Tyler says ‘What if the chorus went like …Youuuuuuuuuu’ and at that point I knew we had something very cool going on. A few months later we had a writing session with Max (aka Golden Vessel) who came down to our Burleigh Heads studio. After a few hours of writing, we exchanged some unreleased music and were lucky enough to send Max the song to work on some additional production and provide the final seasoning.» Enjoy!
London trio Benin City released the gorgeous single Freaking You Out. Joshua Idehen from the band explains: «I wrote it as a soundtrack to Doomscrolling – a ‘Doomscrolling disco’, if you will. Staring at Twitter, constantly refreshing the screen for the next bit of bad news to blanket over me. Worldwide it’s felt like an even more relentless wave of bad news – especially since 2016 – and hella hard to look away or tune out. My verse is a wish that I could.» Enjoy!
