News… Museyroom Share New Single ‘Ballad’

Image: Carly Hoskins In the summer of 2009, Matt Coppola, Jack Donovan and Ben Cohen holed themselves up in Motel Studios and produced a debut EP of nostalgia pop. And then, seemingly, nothing. Well, it seemed that way on the surface. In actual fact the group were spending years trying to hone their craft and…

Notes On… ‘My Heart Is A Dancer’ By Heart/Dancer

Boy-girl synthpop duos aren’t exactly in short supply right now. What pretty much started with just Purity Ring has expanded into a vast conglomerate of acts that have touched on all corners of the electronic realm, from IYES to XYLO to Oh Wonder. So on the surface it would seem like a tall order for…

News… Watch The Video For ‘Deu’ By MMOTHS

Image: Jonas Listroem The first ‘M’ in Irish producer MMOTHS name is silent, you know. That’s probably a good thing. Otherwise he’d have a name that sounds a bit like something someone with mottephobia might squeal (look it up and don’t say we’re not educational). MMOTHS’ music is nothing to fear though, as he creates…

News… Flowers Reveal New Song ‘Pull My Arm’

Image: Nick Gough You never have too far to look if you want to bag some fuzzy indie pop. A cursory glance at some blogs and maybe even just looking at the likes from some of your favourite bands on Soundcloud will probably produce some decent results if you’re in the market. So it takes a…

News… Jenny Gillespie Shares New Song ‘Part Potawatomi’

The Potawatomi are Native Americans who live on the Great Plains, the upper Mississippi River and around the west side of the Great Lakes.

News… The Goon Sax Unveil New Track ‘Boyfriend’

Image: Connor Beazley At the minute, if you’re looking for witty slacker-indie then there’s no better place to head to than Down Under. On their last track ‘Sometimes Accidentally,’ Australian trio The Goon Sax showed off their lyrical prowess by channelling their fellow Aussie Courtney Barnett and delving into some quick-fire wordplay. On their latest…

News… Eddi Front Returns With New Track ‘Goldie’

It’s been three years since Eddi Front (aka Brooklyn native Ivana Carrescia) released her debut self-titled EP. In that time we’ve heard relatively little from the piano player and singer-songwriter, save for a single track seven months ago in the form of ‘Elevator.’ But luckily for everyone who has missed her breathy tones and melancholic…

Notes On… ‘Christine and the Queens’ by Christine and the Queens

Héloïse Letissier has won numerous awards and scored a number two album in her native France and is hardly an under-the-radar artist. But here in the UK she’s more of an unknown entity. Her new self-titled EP under the title Christine and the Queens promises an introduction to Letissier’s musical world, but also so much…

News… Francis Share New Single ‘Horses’

Image:  Sofia Stolpe For anyone looking to fill a void left by the bubblegum lo-fi indie of Alvvays, perhaps a gaze in the opposite direction is needed. Swedish quintet Francis have been plying their trade for nearly a decade in their homeland but so far haven’t managed to break too far out of Scandanavia. But…

News… Shunkan Share ‘Anything But Love’

Image: Kassandra Lynne Photography It’s been a little while since Shunkan pretty much ceased being the solo project of New Zealand-born Marina Sakimoto. They’re a full-blown band now, buoyed by the success of their debut Honey Milk and Blood EP. Since then they’ve been adding even bigger drums, bigger guitars, just bigger everything. In the…
