Lily Hain – Internalize

If you are always there for everybody else, it is only a matter of time until others take advantage of it. With her new song “Internalize,” NYC-based singer/songwriter Lily Hain is at the point when she wants to look out for herself first. The lively indie-rock track has a good[…]

Glassio – A Friend Like You (feat. Beauty Queen)

It’s been a while since we last heard something from Glassio, let alone having seen the fellow Queens resident live. Glassio is the musical project of Irish-Iranian songwriter-producer Sam R. Tinged, and this time, Sam teams up with Los Angeles-based dream-pop artist Beauty Queen for his new single “A Friend[…]

War Violet – Different Formations [Video]

We have known Jummy Aremu, aka War Violet , for a while as an enchanting, hard-working musician in New York City. So we couldn’t be happier to hear that Kill Rock Stars and Bella Union have co-signed her. Her first release, “Different Formations,” expands the range for an artist who[…]

Alex Winston – Hot One

Indie-pop singer and songwriter Alex Winston puts the feeling of joyfully making it through a scorching hot summer day into a magnificent and super catchy song.

Like the previous tracks, “Only Human” gives room to Cade’s soft and ultra-appealing vocals, all embedded in a harmonious, enchanting melody. For me, this has all that[…]

Emmett Kai – Slow Dancing on Pavement

At glamglare, we came across countless artists, exchanging the East Coast with the warmer and maybe more easy-going West Coast. Rarely do we know of a musician who does it the other way around, but multi-instrumentalist Emmett Kai left his home in California to settle first in Brooklyn, NY, and[…]


Computerwife – Vacation [Video]

What better way to start August than with a song called “Vacation?” NYC Indie rocker Addie Warncke aka Computerwife reminds you that to take truly off, you also need to sever the network that constantly delivers information to you. “Vacation” is a lively summer jam that feels fresh, joyful, and[…]

Strange Flesh

Strange Flesh – Very

An unmarked door, a downward staircase leading to a neon-lit room, and the speakers blast music from a different world. That could be a movie scene with “Very,” the new song by Brooklyn electronic pop duo Strange Flesh on the soundtrack. The strange, chilling atmosphere is created by a variety[…]

Fake Fever – Graveyard Shift

The label ‘dream pop’ can be hit or miss, but in the case of Andrew Barnes, aka Fake Fever, it is the spot-on description. The new single “Graveyard Shift” shimmers and glistens and takes the listener on a beautifully dreamy, joyful ride. The track’s vibe is highly alluring and pretty[…]
