Fluir – Feeling For You

21 Oct

Atmospheric yet totally danceable moody pop from another talented Aussie Рmeet Fluir. Give me one one good reason why I should dance asks Fluir as the track builds and some squelchy bleepy synths bubble over the restrained but hypnotic production.

Sandra Kolstad – Halflife

20 Oct

“Burning Love’ is the forthcoming album by one of Norway’s finest musicians, Ms Sandra Kolstad. Our first taste is the divine ‘Halflife’ which is jittery yet beguiling electronic pop which just oozes class and elegance. Make sure you listen to the full length version which has a blissful instrumental outro of perfect electronica, complete with discoey bleeps which almost morph into Madonna’s ‘Lucky Star’. Special.

Girl Wilde – Bad Side

20 Oct

Now there is only one Girl Wilde and that’s Dame Kim so let’s just get that outta the way from the get go. However when I saw that the artist describes her sound as bubblegum grunge I had to give it a go. ‘Bad Side’ is just that – shouty indie with a pop heart.

Marisa Maino – Ever Young

20 Oct

Fun and pulsating bit of electropop from Marisa with her thumping tune ‘Ever Young’. Some early Gaga-isms meets Sabrina Carpenter is what I’m hearing. Some beaut purple hued artwork too.

Coach & Ref – 3-D (featuring Brooke Tomlinson)

20 Oct

This is pretty special. Very difficult to describe why it works but it does. It’s complex and there’s a tonne of stuff going on sonically. It never really lets you settle as a listener and I like that. The guys themselves mention indie pop and retro futurism – sounds about right.

 

Lou Hayter – Cherry On Top

20 Oct

You may know Lou from a number of her musical projects; New Young Pony Club, Tomorrow’s World or The New Sins. Well she’s striking out on her own with ‘Cherry On Top’ and it’s quite delicious. Summery poolside indie disco with some Italo flecks and dreampop vocals – this one is right up our street.

 

Florian – Through The Night

19 Oct

It’s 1984 somewhere in an American High School. Young folks are standing on the edge of the dancefloor at the end of their prom night. It’s slow dance time and the song that begins to play is Florian’s ‘Through The Night’. None of this happened of course as this amazing tune just dropped in the past few hours but you get where I’m going with this. Beautifully nostalgic and stunningly executed we couldn’t be more excited about Florian and we are only three songs in. One of our favourite new pop stars in the making.
