It’s time to showcase some excellent new music from Searchlight & Tolü Makay, Dekker, Jitwam, NoSo, Victoria Canal and more
THE SEER BY WILD WILD WETS
A wonky psych-rock song about the art of songwriting and seeing your projects through to the end was always going to appeal to us, and The Seer by San Diego band Wild Wild Wets certainly hits the spot. Inspiring in both sound and message.
MIAMI BY DALHIA
Miami is a brooding and atmospheric song from Parisian dark-pop duo Dalhia. Underpinned by the spirit of 80s new wave, the track lurches, glides and bounds as it looks to escape from the walls falling in around it.
OWN ME BY VICTORIA CANAL
Some songs just stop you in your tracks and own me by Victoria Canal is one such song. Enveloping you with its fragile beauty and emotional honesty only after this piano ballad is over do you remember to breathe.
CONFIDENCE BY JITWAM
With a jazzy swagger and cocktail-bar vibe, Confidence is the infectious new single from multi-instrumentalist producer and vocalist Jitwam. Oozing a similarly ineffable cool to the music of Pharrell, just try stopping your toes from tapping.
CAN WE GO BACK BY SEARCHLIGHT & TOLÜ MAKAY
Can We Go Back is the latest soulful collaboration between Searchlight and Tolü Makay. Two looped piano chords bring the tension over which Makay weaves the story of a love turned sour. If you like Erykah Badu you’ll love this!
I ONLY HOPE TO FEEL LOVE BY DEKKER
I Only Hope To Feel Love by Dekker is one of those songs that contains to reveal new sides of itself. A simple guitar and percussion opening eventually swells into a rhapsody of rich texture and harmony.
PARASITES BY NOSO
Parasites is the dreamy new single from Korean-American musician NoSo. Acting as a message of hope and encouragement to their younger self, they sing, “The parasites, removed from your skin / And so lovely to meet you again / So lovely to be born again.”
YOU KNOW BY LLORE
Using a collage of sounds to evoke nature’s rich tapestry, You Know finds Nashville-based musician LLORE on a journey of self-discovery. Managing to sound both fantastical and anchored to the real world, it’s a serious treat for the senses.
