New Music Roundup: Zoé Watson, Green City Trees, Zivio, Velar Prana

With Rose, Zoé Watson has written a great slow, shoegaze meets dream pop track that would make an artist like the Chromatics proud. I love how the bass synth slides between notes in the intro, and the artist’s almost lackadaisical vocal tone that emotes a sort of melancholic indifference that echoes lines like “I know… Continue reading New Music Roundup: Zoé Watson, Green City Trees, Zivio, Velar Prana

Too Late for the Rickshaws by Late Night Pharmacy is the kind of o.g. indie rock music that I’ve been missing.

Music Roundup: Ed Beaumont, Beaty Rate, Alan Ward, T Eugenics, Steve Shaz

So It Goes by South-East London based artist Ed Beaumont opens with some delicate harmonies, giving way to some jazzy drums, and lounge-y pianos and guitars that can easily evoke the kind of hotel lobby that features a grand piano just in case. Although I’d love to hear a section with a bit more structure… Continue reading Music Roundup: Ed Beaumont, Beaty Rate, Alan Ward, T Eugenics, Steve Shaz

MARSTER from Sweden flexes their range… Continue reading Music Roundup: Helen Keeling-Marston, The Jayplayers, MARSTER, Lil Phoenix
