music is what feelings sound like

New Music | Luke Krutzke and the High Tides – “Self Esteem”

A perfect track to start your week. I love how smoothly it delivers the sound, and there’s an important message that goes with it, too. The song is a reflection on self-preservation and care, in a fast-paced world that doesn’t always accommodate. “Self Esteem” is the newest track by Luke Krutzke & the High Tides, and can you believe it’s their debut, too? To me, it sounds as if they were releasing invasive, addictive and intense gems like this one under this name for ages – it’s great to hear that their style is already so sharp and confident.

New Music | Callum Pitt – “Away From the Rousing Parades”

I like imagining how alternative realities would look and feel like. I see colourful meadows and fluffy, precious moving slowly on the sky, and all that smells like freshly baked, home-made wholemeal bread with lime tree honey and butter. And you know what? That imaginary world of mine sounds very much like Callum Pitt’s “Away From the Rousing Parades” in my head.

New Music | Dogcatcher ft. Gift of Gab – “SRM”

One of Dogcatcher’s latest singles, featuring Gift of Gab. “SRM” is a beautifully careless mixture of great melodies and softish vocals that make me feel so at ease – even though it mentions “homelessness, personal struggle, and determination” as some of the most important life lessons that anyone can experience.

New Music | New Me – “Something Green”

Even though it starts with a vibe that I wasn’t sure about at first, the dynamic and energy of New Me’s “Something Green” has won my heart this morning. Lively and chaotic in the most amazing way, it’s beautifully branded and put together as well. I love the nonchalance of it, backed up by the structuring that makes me feel so complete as a listener.

New Music | Falaises – “Boy”

Here it is! Falaises and their track “Boy” that’s filled with magnetic darkness (it is surprisingly catchy, too!) in such effortless way. If this is the new way of delivering indie sounds to the world, I’m up for hearing this every single day.

Watch Now | Faults – “Should’ve Been”

Faults’ “Should’ve Been” is a track from their recently released debut self-titled EP. Chaotic in a beautifully organised way, it features some of the most charming and mysterious vocal parts, backed up by equally engaging instruments. Together, they create a world that’s not only atmospheric but also badass af.

New Music | Luke Sital-Singh – “Weight Of Love”

Luke Sital-Singh is, undoubtedly, one of my favourite artists of recent years. Every time I hear of some new pieces from him, I know I’m going to at least enjoy the way he makes his tracks appear so effortless and put together in a way that’s heavenly. “Weight Of Love” is no different; just listen to his voice carefully and try not to feel at ease.

Watch Now | Artificial Pleasure – “On A Saturday Night”

Visuals like this are the reason why I still choose to open YouTube from time to time. Isn’t it just beautiful to get lost in a music video completely? Especially when it’s accompanied by a song that’s so unique in its own structure and atmosphere. Artificial Pleasure must be doing something (or everything) right!

New Music | Sandtimer – “Loner”

It’s been a while – let’s welcome Sandtimer on the blog three years after their song “Different Seas” was featured here. Seems like they’re back with a new album releasing this year, and “Loner” is the latest single off of it, making me think it’s so good to have them back.

New Music | Black Light White Light – “California Love”

A little bit of psych never killed nobody, right? I actually think that if more bands of different backgrounds – Copenhagen, Denmark’s Black Light White Light being the best example – were into more psychedelic sounds, this world would be a better place. “California Love” is a complex and rich tune and has a vibe that’s just too good to be true.

New Music | Eleanor Nelly – “Polaroid”

Angelic vocals and a melody line that goes on smoothly and effortlessly. Everyone needs tunes like this – luckily, Eleanor Nelly is delivering exactly that with her simplistic yet captivating folk-infused track “Polaroid”.

New Music | Pastis – “Amazon”

I’m all about more energetic tracks on days like this, when the sun’s out and the hot weather is making my blood pressure going down – when coffee doesn’t work anymore, it’s Pastis and their tune “Amazon” helping me get through the day. I absolutely love the organised chaos delivered here, with alternative hints and magnetic vocal line.
