Skyways Are Highways - Holiday

Day 364 Skyways Are Highways – Holiday

Today I’m jetting off to Portugal on my holidays*, chasing the sun with Australian band Skyways Are Highways aptly titled track Holiday racing through my over-excited brain. Wrapped up into a minuscule two minutes and twelve seconds, the track’s slightly geeky opening almost immediately gives way to the song’s chorus, which spectacularly enters the track after a mere sixteen…

L A Y L A - Fight The Fire

Day 363 L A Y L A – Fight The Fire

Perfectly suited to accompany her previous strong titled singles Black Mud and Smokestacks, L A Y L A’s latest single Fight The Fire is the first track to be released from her upcoming ‘Weightless’ EP, due this November. There’s always been something very sweet and concerting about L A Y L A’s voice and music, and Fight The Fire retains this existing warmth, leaving you feeling warm…

Day 362 Alex Adair – Make Me Feel Better

With the likes of Kygo and Embody getting more and more popular by the week, 21 year old UK producer Alex Adair feels like the perfect companion to help push tropical deep house towards the absolute masses.

Day 361 TWICEYOUNG – Uncover

Not your standard Nashville musicians, Tyler Laspopoulos, Zac Myers and Seth Lourdon aka. TWICEYOUNG make a huge impact with their towering new indie-electro single, Uncover. Featuring on their upcoming ‘Prefer You’ EP out November 11th, Uncover is an adventurous anthem with a glittering venom that is both striking and sweet at the same time.

Following on from his debut album ‘Whelm’ which dropped earlier this year, wistful song-writer and musician Douglas Dare has unveiled Caroline, the lead track to be taken from his upcoming ‘Caroline/If Only’ EP, out September 22nd. Principally formed around a piano and voice, the track is an emotionally personal number for Douglas, as he imagines his grandfather writing…

GodWolf - So Much More Than Me

Day 358 GodWolf – So Much More Than Me

This is a blast from the past! Back in May 2013, I shared Australian duo GodWolf’s track Alone, praising the song’s dramatic shift in genre mid-way through, that made it both a “quaint, electro-indie ballad and humongous party banger at the same progressive time”. Now way over a year on, new single So Much More Than Me follows a similar model,…

Young Summer - Classless Kids

Day 357 Young Summer – Classless Kids

On Tuesday, Young Summer will release her debut album ‘Siren’ in the States, and I hasten to believe it may end up being one of the best all-round albums of the year. Since initially showing her talent with Waves That Rolled You Under last August, Young Summer aka. Bobbie Allen went away and wrote an album,…

Billie Marten - Ribbon

Day 356 Billie Marten – Ribbon

Brought to my attention by both Fearne Cotton and Stereofox, Billie Marten is a 15 year old singer-songwriter who creates music well beyond her years. Soft, sweet and emotive, her recent single Ribbon is like a delicate flower that blossoms with the aid of a rocking guitar line, romantic strings and Billie’s innocent, spine-tingling soprano. I’ve just listened to…
