KVASIR: ‘Motion’

Since the landing of the Drive soundtrack and more recently Stranger Things, the influx of electronic artists inspired by the artists behind the scores has quadrupled. The familiar synth arpeggios, the slick artwork and the 80s underlying vein have dominated music. KVASIR is the latest mysterious artist to enter the electro playing field. His own artistic vision…

VILDE: ‘Strictly Speaking’

When Kins first entered my life, it was an immediate love affair. As a blogger, the amount of music you listen to results in the merging of artists and memories bleed into one. There are the odd gems like sunlight on sand that stand out. Kins were a band that stood tall and now former member Thomas…

Jailbox: ‘Whole’

Although St. Louis quartet Jailbox have been doing the rounds since 2009, this is my first taste and it is a lasting one. It comes as no surprise they have supported the likes of Vetiver, Devendra Barnhart, Still Corners and Daniel Johnston to name a few.  ‘Whole’, follows a hiatus from the band who returned in 2015. Released via FarmerTanz Records, this…

Dead Naked Hippies: ‘Lights Out’

With a producer like Matt Peel (Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses, Autobahn) on a track, you know even before you listen, it’s going to pack a big bastarding punch.  Leeds trio Dead Naked Hippies‘ clear live dynamic sound has been captured perfectly on their new single ‘Lights Out’. This anthem thrives on confidence with its rock audacity…

Heavy Heart: ‘The Way Home’

London quintet Heavy Heart have become one of my most blogged artists of the year. Their addictive blend of dream rock and crack-melodies have had me hooked within a matter of bars. Following a series of monthly singles, their latest release ‘The Way Home‘ might just be the best yet. Regardless of its place in…

Ripsy May: ‘Dare’

Filmed on location in White Sands, New Mexico, LA-based musician Ripsy May has revealed her consummate new video for triumphant new single, ‘Dare’.  The Latvian-born London singer-songwriter’s video makes me want to disappear without telling anyone and set up location on a sandy plain equally as mesmerising.  Swelling with atmosphere, ‘Dare‘, is compelling, righteous and full of intricate…
