Sunan – “Aflame”

By Will Oliver, May 30th 2018

Sunan, the solo project of former The Vaccines drummer Pete Robertson, debuted last November with his first single “Faster.” 

Roberston has since returned with new single “Aflame,” another expansive electronic track that shows off his killer pipes and inventive production that creates this floaty imaginative sound that sounds and feels absolutely limitless. It’s another interesting and exciting new effort from Roberston who seems full of surprises. I’m looking forward to seeing what else he has in store for us.

Superheart – “Satellite”

By Will Oliver, May 28th 2018

If you go to Superheart’s facebook page you’ll find that in his about section, he describes his music as “dreamy underwater anti-gravity flying music.” While that may seem like a far reach, one listen to the mesmerizing single “Satellite” and you’re suddenly hardpressed to argue with the UK based producer whose real name is Luke Batt.

The track soars to this grandiose feeling of flying free from all of the troubles and constraints of the world, truly just lost in the hypnotic synth world that he builds up and shines even brighter once those heavenly vocals come into play as if you’re staring directly in the face of the most beautiful scene that nature ever produced. This is a real hidden gem and quite frankly one of the best songs that I’ve heard this entire year.

Find a stream of “Satellite” posted below and go grab a copy of the track for yourself at iTunes.

DEGA – “Ocean Love”

By Will Oliver, April 10th 2018

DEGA is the Athens, Georgia husband and wife duo of Aslyn and Kalen Nash. We first caught them just last summer when they opened up for Washed Out at Brooklyn Steel. The duo impressed me with their immediately hooky electronic music and the large scale sound they were able to create as just as duo.

The band are back with a new self-titled album that they released back in February via Lemonade Records. Today we are eager to share with you the record’s great single “Ocean Love,” a track that does remind a great deal of the dreamy goodness created by fellow duo Beach House, with a bit more of an electronic synth spin to give them a different dimension. They knock this one out of the park, delivering something with an emotional center but also an addictive outisde finish.

You can find a stream of “Ocean Love” below and buy the album now over at iTunes.

Lilyer – “Never Getting Closer”

By Will Oliver, February 6th 2018

Growing up in Norway, Marte Solbakken was raised by two musician parents. But when her family fell apart, she quit music and didn’t pick up an instrument for nearly a whole decade. This finally changed during a New York blizzard, where she picked up a guitar again and began writing what would become her first songs.

She eventually spent time in bands as a member of WATERS and fronting Elskling. Both of these experiences were leading up to her launching a solo project of her own under the name Lilyer for which she will release her debut EP Maybe This Is All You Can Be on April 13 via Norweigan record label Jansen Records.

Lead single “Never Getting Closer” is a perfect first glimpse at the talented musician who seems to be a natural fit for glowing electro-pop that is done in both grand and intelligent fashion. If only American pop music was this good.

Find “Never Getting Closer” below and find it available to buy on her Bandcamp.

Bed Scene – “Easy On The Eyes”

By Will Oliver, February 6th 2018

Bed Scene is the project of Miami producer/composter Nick Aponte. He combines elements of indie rock and psych-pop to create smooth songs such as the previously shared “Day In A Dream.”

Today we return with yet another track from his self-titled debut EP with the seductive and lush “Easy On The Eyes.” More of a calm soothing effort that plays with some airy synths that work beautifully to create a highly enjoyable bedroom pop ballad that reminds a bit of some Toro y Moi.

Stream “Easy On The Eyes” below and find his EP available to buy on iTunes.

Hibou – “Fall Into”

By Will Oliver, February 2nd 2018 — with 2 comments

Hibou is the project of Peter Michel, formerly a member of Craft Spells. Fans of theirs will find plenty to love in Michel’s airy electro-rock that has a life of his own.

He will return with new album Something Familiar which will come out on March 2 via Barsuk Records. He’s recently shared the album’s stunning single “Fall Into,” a song that packs a hell of a punch.

It instantly showcases some air-tight production that allows its funky bassline and 80s synth lines to do their work, totally paving the way for his floating vocals. Just when you think you know where “Fall Into” is going it shifts gears and becomes even more expansive to the point where you’re wondering why Hibou isn’t a much bigger name yet. But based on “Fall Into” and the promise of the rest of the record, it’s only a matter of time.

Find the official music video (directed by Kelia and Luca) for “Fall Into” posted below. If you dig what you hear you can preorder the album here.
