Kuni is the moniker of Rome-based artist Eleonora Danese. Her debut single is the dreamy, bright track “Sleep Baby,” out now on Factory Flaws. It is not meant as a lullaby, but it does have a calming effect, and you can well imagine it inducing sweet dreams on a poolside[…]

Jessica Woodlee – Dairy Aisle

littleuniverses – Sword [Video]

The brooding and utterly mesmerizing “Sword” is the new single by Canadian artist littleuniverses.

Sval – Grenade

No, it’s not going too well in Sval’s life. At least, she thinks so in her new song “Grenade” about those moments when you want to throw everything out of the window or – metaphorically – drop a grenade. But then, this is an upbeat pop song that wants to[…]

Madison Steinbruck – Kathryn

Once trust breaks, it often cannot be established again.

néomí – Red Balloon

Breakup songs are often written after the fact and after the mind was made up about its importance and long-term effects. “Red Balloon,” the new song by Surinamese/Dutch singer/songwriter néomi has its origins much earlier. This may explain the intensity of the track, which builds from a simple piano line[…]
