Although the name Temple Invisible isn’t quick to roll off the tongue, this song will quickly climb into your periphery and grab that attention of yours within seconds. Can songs do that? Oh yes they can! The Bucharest-based trio have just released their new electro-pop track called ‘Sudden Acts’ off of their upcoming debut EP ‘Enter_’, (out December 15th). There’s a little bit of everything current riling through these notes, you’ve got the darker tones of trip-hop subtly grumbling below her sweet airy vocals and the whole thing just feels downright worthy of a repeat play once you get to the end. Excited by what’s to come.
Actually, please do listen to this beauty from UK artist Leo Stannard. Lior tipped me to his talent back in August on “Why Don’t We” and recently I’ve been seeing his name popping up around the blogs with his song (and video) for “Please Don’t”, off his Notions EP. Impressive guitar skills and a memorable melody, yup, that’ll get you on this blog. Video and track below.
I’m taking a moment from a pretty productive morning to set my eyes out the window and daydream, listening to “Sweat” by LA/Australia artist RY X. The song is available as a single with “Love Like This” as the b-side.
It’s Friday and I’m blasting some new tunes from Toronto artist Michael Rault. He’s recently signed with Burger Records for the release of his album Living Daylight (out in 2015); “a record that’s a melodically adventurous take on a classic theme – leaving home to make your way in the big city”. What’s below is his current cassingle “Nothing Means Nothing”/”Still Not Sad”, produced in collaboration with members of Fucked Up and Slim Twig, yet written and performed entirely solo. An economic and modernized take on classic rock tropes, take a spin.
A few weeks back, I put up the latest from Wolf Saga, his cover of The Strokes classic “You Only Live Once”. I mentioned in the post that the vocal contribution came from Toronto synth-pop artist LYON, who today I have an original song from. “Cut Me Loose” is her first offering of new music since last year’s acclaimed “Indian Summer” EP, which reveals a more dynamic and sonically developed sound than her previous material. For fans of bands like CHVRCHES (and I definitely hear similarities to Foster The People in the chorus), check out “Cut Me Loose” by LYON.
