Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Blak Emoji – Sapiosexual

There’s a lot going on in “Sapiosexual”, lots of good stuff. Aside from the obvious, the rather brainy song title, with a Latin based and relatively newly created noun referring to being attracted to intelligence. What’s more interesting, for me usually anyway, is the music and it is uncompromising straightforward[…]

SONG PICK: Satellite Mode – Fair

Jess, singer of New York duo Satellite Mode is having it in a relationship where the other side is not playing “Fair”. Her vocals express anger and dissatisfaction, her partner Alex’ production underscores the drama of the moment. I hope you are not in a similar situation, but if you[…]

SONG PICK: Bryde – Help Yourself

Be prepared for goosebumps: London singer/songwriter Bryde develops her song “Help Yourself” from a quiet guitar and voice piece to a big rock anthem and back. “If you can’t help yourself, nobody else will help you out of this.”, she sings. That is true, too often.

SONG PICK: KYOSi – Early Riser

No matter if you are an “Early Riser” or not, our Song Pick of the Day will boost your Saturday. New York singer/producer KYOSi’s debut single is a fresh, upbeat track that channels the effect of the first rays of sunshine in the morning.

SONG PICK: Lightcliffe – Please Leave

Even after having listened multiple times to “Please Leave”, the 2nd single by London quartet Lightcliffe, my immediate feelings still ring true: this is a heartbreakingly sweet song, based on a great melody, with lots of warm and fuzzy guitars and topped off with kinda ‘innocent’ sounding, great vocals… While starting out[…]

SONG PICK: Tsar B – Myth

Sensual, electronics infused with Middle Eastern melodies is the trademark of mysterious Belgian singer Tsar B. Add that ominous bass line and you have an excellent Song Pick of the Day. Check out also her video for “Escalate”.

SONG PICK: luhx. – poison.

We take it more slowly on this Wednesday morning with “poison.”, an alluring new song by luhx. from Boston. They call their sound “synth-soul” and that describes it already pretty well. The song is beautifully crafted and the vocals are amazing and rather unique for this kind of “chill-pop”, you’d[…]

SONG PICK: Avec Sans – Heartbreak Hi

A broken heart heals slowly. That is the topic of our Song Pick of the Day “Heartbreak Hi” by the London duo Avec Sans. We have featured them before, when they were on the way to our hometown festival CMJ. Now they are Austin-bound and we are looking forward to[…]

SONG PICK: High Tyde – Dark Love

In need of a little energy push? Listen to the super cool and highly infectious “Dark Love” and you’ll feel instantly energized and ready to tackle this Monday evening like it was Friday. “Dark Love”, our Song Pick of the Day, is the latest single by the British quartet High[…]

SONG PICK: Stella – Works For You

Greece has a special place in our hearts, so I’m delighted to present “Works For You” by singer/songwriter Stella as the Song Pick of the Day. It is in no way a folk song, but there is something distinctively Greek about it, before that bright synth line carries it away[…]
