Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Rodes Rollins – Wes Come Back

Rodes Rollins’ atmospheric second single clearly draws inspiration from Italian western soundtracks and it is hard not to have a movie playing in your mind while listening to it. “Wes Comes Back” is about a long time friend of hers, whom she parted with at some point earlier in her[…]


“Matinee” is a beautiful, upbeat indie pop song and the new single by Milwaukee-based duo REYNA. “Matinee” is about a failed long distance relationship and the resulting rebound and empowerment. The song is catchy no matter what, but it might especially speak to everyone in a similar situation and encourage to live life[…]

SONG PICK: Orchid – Body

Meet Orchid , the self-taught London-based singer/producer, who takes this alternative, R&B, electronic, whatever-you-want-to-call-it genre to the place where it is the most exciting: as an expression of one artist’s true emotions. Her first self-produced track “Body” eschews much of the genre-typical pomp (no pitched vocals!) features an elegant synth[…]

SONG PICK: Sofi Tukker – Johny

Together with a fun telephone game, Sofi Tukker  just released the irresistibly charming “Johny”, following their hit singles “Matadora” and “Drinkee”. The New York based duo also got Grammy nominated in the category “Best Dance Recording”. Usually, an indie music blog would not necessarily pay too much attention to The Grammys but[…]

SONG PICK: Hydra Lerna – HYDRA

Our Song Pick of the Day comes from a London musician who took on the identity of a multi-headed monster from the Greek mythology : Hydra Lerna . Her first song (under this name) is also called “Hydra” and the catchy synth line with her bright, innocent vocals are deceiving:[…]


“Origami”, the new single by PLAZA continues to demonstrate that these four Brits are a seriously gifted indie rock band and one must not loose out of sight. The new track comes ahead of their EP scheduled for April and it exquisitely plays with major and minor chords, switching between a melancholic to[…]

SONG PICK: Sandscape – Artificial Rush

At glamglare we are big fans of Eliza Shaddad, who released an excellent EP “Run” last year. Now she teamed up with producer Dan Sonabend to form Sandscape. Today’s Song Pick of the Day is their debut single “Artificial Rush”, a shapeshifting track fit for an post-apocalyptic jazz lounge. It[…]

SONG PICK: Tempers – Further

“Further” is the new song by NYC-based electronic duo Tempers, comprised of Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper, and the compelling single ahead of their upcoming EP “Fundamental Fantasy” out on February 24. With “Further”, the two created once again their very own brand of sparsely instrumented dark electronica contrasting with a bright melody[…]

SONG PICK: Esther Joy Lane – Ever Ever

So far I have learned about the work of U.K. singer/producer Esther Joy Lane only randomly via the discovery feature of Soundcloud, although I believe she deserves being talked about all over the place. Her latest, brand new track “Ever Ever” is an ethereal but melancholic synth pop piece. It[…]
