Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Linying – Alpine

Our Song Pick of the Day is a song by Linying from Singapore: her latest track “Alpine” starts quiet, almost inaudible and then soars into big, chills-inducing ballad. Maybe she had a sunrise in the mountains in mind, when she chose the title. Linying is working on an EP “Paris[…]

SONG PICK: Hildur – Bumpy Road

“Bumpy Road” is an irresistibly catchy pop-gem, upbeat and instantly happiness inducing. It is the latest track by Icelandic singer, songwriter and producer Hildur, who fans also know from her band Rökkurró. “Bumpy Road” is electro-pop at its best, and our Song Pick of the Day. Hildur is scheduled to play this[…]

SONG PICK: Jenny Hval – Conceptual Romance

Norwegian artist Jenny Hval is usually not an easy listen and her high concept work tends to leave you intentionally baffled and confused. “Conceptual Romance” has a lot of that too, but it also adds some almost friendly and melodic elements, which makes this track easier to access and suited[…]

SONG PICK: inc. no world – Waters of You

Listening to “Waters of You” evokes the feeling of walking on an empty beach, on a warm, not too hot, Summer day, bright sunlight glistening through the waves when it starts to drizzle, just lightly, the sweet water drops mixing with the saltwater ones, when you are setting one bare foot in[…]

SONG PICK: Odina – You Loved Me, You Killed Me

“You loved Me, You Killed Me” is a quiet and sad song about the end of a relationship. “I loved mysteries until you became one” she sings about the moment when one realizes that love comes to an end. The song builds up beautifully, from the sparse, intimate guitar melody[…]

SONG PICK: Ethan & the Reformation – Hollandia

From the start, there’s no escape and falling for “Hollandia” is unavoidable! The new single by Manchester quintet Ethan & The Reformation, is one irresistibly hot, fuzzy alt-rock gem with wistfully raspy vocals, steady beats and stellar guitar work. “Hollandia” comes with a clear 60s vibe yet so fresh and modern and simply totally[…]

SONG PICK: Stalgia – In The Trees

Stalgia are Lauren Day and Brandon Leslie who make music together in L.A. “In The Trees” is a sensual track full of rich electronic textures and snappy beats (and some down-pitched vocals, which seem hard to avoid these days). I like it how the instrumentation subtly changes and of course[…]

SONG PICK: Onomoto – Down In The Dark

Onomoto is the musical project of multi-talented artist Kathryn Rollins from Perth, Australia. “Down In The Dark” is her promising debut single: a slow, intense track with cinematic touches. Kathryn plans to combine her music with visual elements, such as the slick and elegant website, which she designed and coded[…]

SONG PICK: Shallows – Empire Of The Animal

“Empire Of The Animal” is the follow-up single to the wildly popular “Summer Sucks” by L.A. indie-pop duo Shallows, comprised of Dani Poppitt and Marshall Gallagher. There’s a beautiful melancholy to “Empire Of The Animal”, created by dense layers of ambience and percussion as well as vocals that give room to different emotions.[…]

SONG PICK: Lavoy – Smile

I love everything about “Smile”, the latest single by Alaska alt-pop five-piece Lavoy. The title of the song, the melody, the arrangement, the sentiment… everything!  When I first listened to the totally irresistibly, upbeat ditty, I truly smiled myself. There’s something about “Smile” that just folds you in a super pleasant embrace,[…]
