New: Second Hand Heart - Hold On

It’s almost surreal the way this Melbourne based band tides together their rich, ambitious tunes! Second Hand Heart is the kind of band that should be set up as an example! Imaginary orchestration, sharpened guitars, haunting atmosphere, song structures to make you feel emotionally shivering, earthly production, female vocals that makes the ground shaking! Just like the perfect by all means Hold On, a sunny dream pop melancholy that raises the heat with its edging guitars and fiercely nostalgic ’70s stadium pop vibes! Hold On could (and should) be attached to every memorable moment that you’re about to experience this coming summer! Superb!

Second Hand Hearts debut cd is available for purchase over here.

New: St Tropez - In Pictures

St Tropez is a 5 piece band from Oakland, CA that happily surprised me with their debut song In Pictures. A bittersweet affair of old fashioned indie pop with sun drenched electronics cuddling their warm diy philosophy, In Pictures balances with ultimate success between ’60s sunny laid back vibes and late ’90s guitar pop sensation and brings out this happy/sad feeling that simply feels irresistible!

San Mei will release her new single Wars on May 12th via London based label Tidal Waves and the streaming experience just got elevated! Still producing her own songs so to keep this DIY feel, Wars exposed a crystalized synth pop vein that almost bounces on its own vibes! The danceable groove hits you like a strike while the atmosphere emits this eerie smoke of otherworldly colors!
