My Light // Mika Jones

Beautiful dark song by Mika Jones, vocally reminiscent of Pearl Jam and 80s/90s punk, though there is a real surf vibe in the guitars and bongos. Pretty perfect, it's dark enough but not hard to listen to, in fact, it's pretty comforting! As it progresses, it becomes more experimental with various different parts, rock to...

Veil // Holsky

A fine blend of the Maccabees, Gary Numan and White Lies. Holsky has created an incredible, slow dancing, atmospheric, 80s tinged masterpiece. The visuals used set the scene, but the track really sends you back, this track could be the soundtrack to an emotional part of an 80s movie. The slow beat with the reverb... Continue Reading →

Old New Love // Chork

This world that we live in has become strange and unpredictable. Chork has harnessed the idea that you can still be in love in this socially disconnected world, whether it is reciprocated or not. A song about loss, about being apart, about love, it's got it all here. It doesn't dwell on unhappiness, infact it... Continue Reading →

Tough Love // Sarah Martinson

Branching from almost folk to jazz to pop to slightly experimental for example If We Knew, which is actually really quite bizarre in it's... Continue Reading →

Melancholy Boy // LOUD HOUND

This is a song of many sides. There are elements of electronic dance, indie pop, and a loud rock drum beat. It's mixed awesomly, the keys in the breakdown and the drums could be in an Ibiza summer hit. The whole package feels like it should be relaxing but it has a frenzy to it.... Continue Reading →

Hold Me Tight // Hoodooleen

Hoodooleen is Robert James Hudulin (pretty smart way to come up with a band name, very cool) coming to you from Australia via Croatia. He creates calming but incredibly dramatic, larger than life show tune-esque indie pop. That is what makes Hoodooleen different from pretty much everything else I have heard this year, it's so...

Vacation // The Mowgli’s

It's Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK and I think that if any song was one that could properly convey the message that everything will be alright, then this is it. Also, this song will instantly get stuck on your head, you have been warned. It is incredibly catchy. The Mowgli's have played literally... Continue Reading →
