Gold Light: ‘Arm’s Length’

Gold Light have become a bit of an addiction for me, the project of Joe Chang has seen a consistently excellent sonic output. Their latest offering is the beautifully nostalgic ‘Arm’s Length’. Accompanied by a stunning, sentimental video, the North Carolina quintet have created a thing of wonder. “Arm’s Length” by GOLD LIGHT from Joe Chang on…

Innerspace Orchestra: ‘One Way Glass’

We have a new supergroup in our midst in the shape of Innerspace Orchestra. The new project of Tom Furse (The Horrors), Cathy Lucas (Fanfarlo) and Rose Elinor Dougall (Mark Ronson, The Pipettes) have revealed their introductory single ‘One Way Glass’. Airily psychedelic, the trio stretch stylistic boundaries and have produced a lush, romantic debut. ‘One…

Olga Bell: ‘Randomness’

Russian Native Olga Bell has catapulted the singer to the 90s dancefloor. Adopting a far moden production technique – this takes elements of funk and splices it with 80s synth-pop ambience and analogue dub techniques to create an inspiring epic pop soundscape.

Loud Forest – ‘Drag Me/Don’t Drag Me’

Los Angeles-based Loud Forest have been together for 10 years now and if their latest rousing release ‘Drag Me/Don’t Drag Me’ is anything to go by, there is no sign of the band laying things to rest.  From its pining verses to its mammoth choruses, this does everything to take you from a state of melancholy to complete jubilation.

Produced by Kliph Scurlock (Gruff Rhys, Flaming Lips), The Big…

Fresh: Flora Cash – ‘For Someone’

Flora Cash is husband and wife Cole Randall and Shpresa Lleshaj. The Swedish duo have released bewitching sonnet ‘For Someone’. Peppered vocally with warbling  leaps into soaring vibrato, there is something beautifully cinematic about this song. They capture an underlying sadness that is unexpectedly moving.

Fresh: Buddha Trixie – ‘Real’

Buddha Trixie describe themselves as four college kids holed up in a garage in San Diego which is perfectly reflected in their latest track ‘Real’.  This is not so much recycling classic rock ‘n’ roll, but reviving it with added ebullience. This is an exciting new wave attack that goes way beyond the band’s years.

Bossy Love – ‘Want Some’

I  have been waiting to make this Song of the Day for 5 days. A sad admission on my part, but it’s finally live and I can express my unconditional love. Firstly, this is my favourite song released so far this year. Bossy Love have nailed it, this is a heart-bursting, body-moving, electro-pop anthem. John…
