  1. Single Serving: GOVS – 6teenDRE’am

    Queensland, Australia’s GOVS, a.k.a. Josiah Birrell, recently delivered a deep new single “6teenDRE’am” that is fully endowed with the ability to make your wildest, starry-eyed, love-struck dreams take flight. The song is a clear-sighted window into the bursting depths of love often found within the vulnerable youth. Birrell’s gentle, soothing voice alongside elegantly knitted guitar chords Continue…

    Take a listen to the dreamy and starry-eyed new single "6teenDRE'am" from Australia's GOVS.

  2. Single Serving: Palmistry – Memory Taffeta

    This new single “Memory Taffeta” from London’s Palmistry sparkles like a clear, perfectly cut diamond. The sentiment is pure r&b vibe while the groove subtly balances dancehall rhythms with minimalist electronica. All in all, I’d say it’s pretty hard to resist. See for yourself.

  3. Single Serving: M.I.L.K. – Everything You Know

    Copenhagen-based outfit M.I.L.K. have shared the second installment taken from their forthcoming as-yet untitled debut EP. It’s is called “Everything You Know” and the track highlights funky drums and playful percussion balanced with longing horns and soulful vocals to mirror those summer romances you wish would never end. Singer Emil Will explains, “It’s a galactic love Continue…

  4. Single Serving: COMPNY – Gently Let You Down

    London five-piece COMPNY return with a new single called “Gently Let You Down.” Once again, the band has crafted another dazzling slice of indie-pop dipped into a lush upbeat melody – produced by Barny Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, Bombay Bicycle Club). Take a listen below.

  5. Single Serving: Wolf Alice – Freazy

    Nothing says “Go grab your swim wear, a 6 pack of your favorite beverage, and hit the nearest body of water with your best of friends,” quite like Wolf Alice‘s latest single “Freazy.” Although I couldn’t quite tell you what “freazy” means, all that really matters is that the word is as fun and warm as Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Vök – Waterfall

    Icelandic threesome Vök create the type of music that can remove one’s mind from reality. The sound enters your ears and suddenly you’re transported to some other far away exoplanet where the world as you know it ceases to exist.  For example, their latest single “Waterfall” can send your brain into a beautiful, dimensionless spiral. Both lyrically and melodically, Continue…

  7. Single Serving: Bully – Trying

    Though it’s done is a familiar 90s alt-rock swatch, Bully leader Alicia Bognanno makes the genre feel new. “Trying” is a coming-of-age song that oozes with uncertainty and frustration. These emotions are further heightened by Bully’s lo-fi rock sound and Bognanno’s powerful yawps. The perfect summer song for new graduates or lost twenty-something year olds.

  8. Single Serving: Leisure – Hot Love

    New Zealand collective Leisure (to the best of my knowledge there is no relation to the Leisure we previously featured in the Pairings Box) are back with their second-ever release “Hot Love.” It’s a smooth, silky vibe with a funky rhythm and playful demeanor. Take a listen and see for yourself.

  9. Single Serving: Swim Good X Merival – Since U Asked

    Canada’s Swim Good and Merival teamed up for the 29th installment of Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs series, with a beautiful little number titled “Since U Asked.” At just over two and a half minutes in length, it’s warm little smile gleaming in the reflection of someone’s tears.

  10. Single Serving: Gardens & Villa – Fixations

    The good folks at Gardens & Villa recently announced a new album titled Music For Dogs slated to drop August 21st via Secretly Canadian. They also dropped the album’s first single “Fixations” and it’s a springy, upbeat vibe blending post-punk melodies with synth-framed atmospheres. Take a listen.
