Frances - Grow

Day 274 Frances – Grow [MY FINAL POST]

I have been holding off from sharing UK singer-songwriter Frances’ beautiful track Grow for over a week now, as I wanted it to accompany the sad but also exciting news that today is my final post on mydaybydaymusic. After sharing 1004 daily song posts dating all the way back to September 1st 2012, I’ve decided that today…

Ellas - Heartbeat

Day 271 Ellas – Heartbeat

After discovering Ellas’ track Heartbeat on Soundcloud earlier this week, I tried to do a little snooping around the internet to unearth more about the artist, however quite unusually I failed to learn anything insightful about (the presumed band) at all. Backstory or not, their only track online Heartbeat is an endearing number that’s woven piano and cello lines support the…

Barbarossa - Home ft. Jose Gonzalez

Day 251 Barbarossa – Home (Feat José González)

I first fell in love with James Mathé aka. Barbarossa back in 2013 when I saw him supporting Pacific Air in New York of all places. Wonderfully accomplished as a solo musician, his latest track Home pushes his musicianship to new boundaries, collaborating with friend, colleague and world renowned musician José González. A beautiful piece of songwriting, Home is…

RHODES - Turning Back Around

Day 242 RHODES – Close Your Eyes

Premiered just minutes ago as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’, RHODES has unveiled Close Your Eyes, the first single to be taken from his his impending debut album. Astonishingly good, the track is a further reminder that the Hitchin-based musician WILL (in the very near future) be recognised amongst the finest singers, songwriters, musicians and…

Of Monsters And Men - I Of The Storm

Day 240 Of Monsters And Men – I Of The Storm

A beautiful new extract from their forthcoming second album ‘Beneath The Skin’, Of Monsters And Men’s new single I Of The Storm is everything you could want and more from the Icelandic band. Stunningly crafted, the song is an inspiring, organic number that feels incredibly epic despite its reserved grandeur. If you want to see this (and many…

Following heavy support all of last week from Radio 1’s daytime DJ’s thanks to the BBC Introducing initiative, Arctic Lake return with their second single Only Me, a mind-numbingly beautiful song that cements their status as one of the most exciting new band’s to emerge so far in 2015. Giving me similar chills to the first time I heard…

TXSTXDT - Illuminate

Day 238 TKSTXDT – Illuminate

One of the most exciting collaborations of the year so far, two of Australia’s elite new musician’s Danny Harley aka. The Kite String Tangle (TKST) and Dustin Tebbutt (DT) have joined forces as TKSTXDT to deliver an incredibly special new single Illuminate. Lusciously layered, the track is a glistening electro-folk delight that benefits from both musicians attention…

Billie Marten - Heavy Weather

Day 220 Billie Marten – Heavy Weather

Every time I hear new music from Billie Marten, I am amazed by the quality and raw beauty of her sound at just 15 years of age. Now signed to plucky indie label Chess Club Records, Billie’s latest single Heavy Weather is a soft, organic number that sweetly lulls the listener into its warming heart. Heavy Weather will be…

Axel Flovent - Forest Fires

Day 217 Axel Flóvent – Forest Fires

Hailing from Iceland, Axel Flóvent immediately strikes me as an artist with a big future ahead of him. Releasing music via. indie label Trellis Records, Flóvent’s bewitching acoustic folk is inherently beautiful on so many levels, reminding me of the very best Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Dustin Tebbutt music all mixed together. As light as…

Lindsay Nourse - On And On

Day 216 Lindsay Nourse – On And On

A completely unknown name to me and I’m sure many others (she only has 223 Facebook followers), Bostonian musician Lindsay Nourse has bought a little light into my evening thanks to her beautiful single On And On. Discovered via. I Heart Moosiq, the track is a light, empowering blend of indie and folk, with a pleasant dose…
