music is what feelings sound like


Watch Now | The Yada Yada Yadas – “Oceans”

Debut single from Durham’s group The Yada Yada Yadas. “Oceans” is a beautifully delivered, smoothly structured track with a visual inspired by 1969 movie Midnight Cowboy – which adds a whole new dimension to this song. Am I the only one hoping for this to become a reoccurring theme in their career?


New Music | Allegra Krieger – “Circles”

The stream of my favourite autumn tunes continues; this time with Allegra Krieger and her absolutely stunning piece “Circles”. This Brooklyn-based musician surely knows how to get one’s attention and how to keep it for a long, long time, using ethereal and unusual-sounding instrumentation as a catch; and I’m not even mad, I’d love to experience more of it, preferably in a form of a full-length album (which is a dream that came true this month, just listen to the record on Spotify), and preferably on vinyl.

New Music | Over the Trees – “Come Here”

Let’s start this beautiful, fall weekend with a little something from Over the Trees. “Come Here” is a track rich in texture, and nicely reflects my autumn moods; it’s peaceful, yet strong and self-conscious in its form. The song comes from their debut album From the Sidewalk, released earlier this year.

New Music | Skylar Bouchard – “Montreal”

And here, ladies and gentlemen, we have my favourite track of the season. A perfect blend of a melodic song with a voice that’s making me the most sentimental I could get. Skylar Bouchard’s “Montreal” is his debut single and the most beautiful start of a career I could imagine. It comes from the Tired of the City EP, available in full on Soundcloud.

New Music | Band Of Gold – “I Wanna Dance With You Again”

My favourite piece of this week. Both subtle and confident, it welcomes a new form of dancing to my life, where it’s not only my body moving but also my soul and my mind, making listening to this track oh-so-special. This is a beautiful introductory song to start your journey across Band Of Gold’s releases with, which is exactly what I’m about to do right now.

New Music | William The Conqueror – “Tend To The Thorns”

Classic and warm vocals, soothing structuring, and smoothly developed vocals – that’s how this tune sounds like to me. It’s one of the singles from William The Conqueror’s album Proud Disturber Of The Peace, which was released in August and can be streamed on Spotify, which I highly recommend to all those trying to make a final list of their favourite 2k17 releases.

New Music | twiceyoung – “Change Your Love”

Second single from Philly-based twiceyoung’s upcoming Uneven Kind EP, out October 20. A beautiful blend of delicate and vulnerable vocals with soothing instrumentation that surprises and adds so much emotions to one’s everyday existence, even though it’s modest and rather introverted in its form.

Watch Now | Geoffroy – “Coastline”

There’s something soothing and reassuring about Geoffroy’s track “Coastline”; it doesn’t only covers current trends, but also makes me weirdly at peace with my current musical choices. It’s also a titled-track off of his debut 2017 album, which you can stream on Spotify – and let me know your thoughts afterward. I can’t be the only one affected by it in such relaxing way, can I?

New Music | The Khanz – “Wolves”

It’s Sunday and it seems like the summer hasn’t forgotten about this part of Europe just yet, which is as rare as the probability of spotting a naked girl with dino head on the streets. Luckily, The Khanz fill in that existential gap with their happy sounding track “Wolves” and a pretty cool album cover.

New Music | Young Mister – “Infinite Space”

Take a moment to listen to Young Mister’s new track “Infinite Space” and get lost in its delicate nature. This kind of softer approach to sound is all I could ask for during such a gloomy day; let’s hope their upcoming Soft Rock EP (out Oct 27) will bring us equally engaging and soothing sounds.

New Music | Tipling Rock – “A Side / B Side”

Let’s welcome Tipling Rock on the blog once again! Their track “A Side / B Side” is, for me, the ultimate memory of the summer that’s over but still very much vivid in my imagination; and makes a beautiful continuation to “Low Tide Love” and “Campus Fashion” that appeared here previously – make sure to check ’em out as well.

New Music | Wy – “Gone Wild”

How pointless and boring this world of music would be without this one! To this day, I find myself intrigued and in love with many of Wy’s tracks, including “I Don’t Pretend” and recently released “You +I”, which are forever saved on my Spotify’s favourite playlist; time to get lost in a new sound represented by the song “Gone Wild”. A more subtle and delicate approach to sound, described by Wy as “the most personal song I’ve ever written (…) about everything I fear and everything I doubt”.
