Oh my god, what is this!?

There’s so much going on that’s impossible to process straight away. It’s like Glinda from Wicked went to Avenue Q and decided to start up the glittering yellow brick road of the music industry. And it’s AWESOME. (more…)

The Pierces

I came across The Pierces towards the end of last year, after a horrid time searching through Spotify for something new to listen to this group came as breath of fresh air. They have a whole bunch of songs that are just completely awesome and they span over a few albums, so it’s nice to see that they have that continuity.

The sister duo isn’t afraid to make a few changes here and there, even if they’ve hit upon a perfect formula. Secret is a wonderful display of how slow they’re willing to go with a track and the other techniques they have at their disposal to make up for a lack of speed. Then there’s Kings, which is much faster in comparison but no less addictive. The lyrics in both tracks are great and fun to listen to.

Song of the Day: Over by Alice Boman

Rather annoyingly there is very little information available about Alice Boman on her social media sites. This is the part of the post where we would talk a bit about her history and anything she’s achieved. All we can say at the moment is that she’s from Malmö and sings in hauntingly beautiful English that clings to your mind like dew drops to blades of grass. (more…)


Song of the Day: Longtime by Ash Grunwald

Longtime gets started pretty quickly. I think there’s like one second of introduction then the whole thing kicks in pretty swiftly. It takes about the same amount of the time to be immersed in the track. Ash Grunwald does a great job. (more…)
