Premiere: Neev – Across the Glass

There’s a sense of loss on Neev’s second ever single ‘Across The Glass.’ A love letter to her hometown of Glasgow written from her adopted home of London, she reminisces on times that are consigned to youth. “The fairylights above our heads / made our words taste so sweet” she sings, the memory creating a […]

New song: Party of the Sun – Drifters

Americana extraordinaries Party of The Sun released their debut LP ‘Trekker’ last Wednesday (30 October). ‘Drifters’ – its standout track – is reminiscent of leaving the house on a fresh Winter morning, the air entirely still, no car engines sounding, your breath appearing like a column of smoke. It’s a fleeting moment of quietude that […]

The Innocence Mission’s ‘Green Bus’ was arguably 2018’s best song; the resulting album ‘Sun On The Square’ was pretty flawless too.

New song: Emily Yacina – Gleaming

Emily Yacina’s backing vocals were a stand-out feature of Yohuna’s magnificent record, ‘Mirroring’.

Lead single ‘Gleaming’ is more a feeling than a song. […]

Canada’s Basement Revolver released new EP ‘Wax and Digital’ on Friday (25 October), following up their debut full-length ‘Heavy Eyes’. Its standout moment is ‘Have I Been Deceived’, a shimmering, lush track with a deceptively dark subject matter. ‘Have I Been Deceived’s bright glimmer makes it easy to miss Chrisy Hurn’s (singer/guitarist) bleak words. Under […]

New song: Gold Baby – Philadelphia

The last time we heard from North London’s Gold Baby, songwriter Sian Alex was visualising a conversation between her adult and child self on the wonderfully infectious ‘500/1’ (read our review here). Three months on and we find Alex showing her narrative chops again, this time inter-splicing a story of when she got lost in […]
