We have put together a list of songs that have stood out this month for a plethora of reasons. Please take the time to invest and immerse yourself in them:
This is like a vertiginous rainbow unravelling that builds so delicately. Its naivety, combined with a poignant vocal is what makes this feel like a comforting, strange beautiful friend.
Demonstrating such strength and beauty, ‘Gracious‘, is a heartstring-pulling ballad. The spaciousness penned here lets Sascha’s vocal meander and flourish making this a compelling listen.
Precious, glimmering and lasting, this is has a lonesome warmth that may be simplistic in its delivery and arrangement, but its effect is one that stays with you long after listening. ‘Mistakes‘ really gets under your skin and feel an affinity with its singer.
ARY: ‘Childhood Dreams’
Let the words and rhythms run through you, to let the melodies wrap around you. This is a seductive, clever and inimitable triumph.
BOKEH: ‘I Know You Know’
This is melancholy, ambient electro indie that floats between the mind’s pool and the deep blue sea. An inventive and effervescent song.
The Great Dictators: ‘We’re Almost Here’
Their sorrow becomes our communal celebration, so to speak. The passion behind this song and in its delivery makes and breaks your heart. Its greatness is revealed over the course of the track and this cements itself as one of the year’s most poignant releases.
‘Daisy’ has a vulnerability and freshness that thaws you out over its listen. This is the sweet spot between innocence and skill.
The second of Faodail’s immersive songs to be featured in our top tracks list thus far and someone that is firmly on our radar of rotational listening. This is a beautiful and highly rewarding journey in terms of listening and someone that makes a genuine connection with his audience.
Lunch Ladies: ‘You’re Not There’
Thoroughly charming, its juxtaposition of fragile melodic guitar lines and dreamy vocals make for a compelling, if not occasionally familiar, listen.
