The enigmatic dream pop/darkwave artist Skauss is back to take you on a transcendental journey through the outer realms of everlasting, immortal love, with his heartbreaking ode Foreva - a profound confession of a god, doomed to live and mourn eternally for his lost mortal love.

Foreva will make every cell of your body explode from nostalgia and pure, perpetual love, as you swirl in a majestic maelstrom of dazzling vocals that melt over a dreamlike blend of darkwave and synthpop, deeply stirring lyricism for a love lost to eternity, eerie synths, and a haunting saxophone and harp outro. A five-minute burst of pure majesty.

Boo is the newest release and the title track of Brooklyn's music/art collective Dead Leaf Echo's upcoming EP set for release in early 2023.

Written in part as a tribute to the late Denise Johnson (Primal Scream / New Order), Boo is brimming with an effortlessly addictive indie dance tune, soaring vocals and brain-hooking lyrics that explore frontman L.G. Galleon's paranoid thoughts "about surveillance, discovery and scaring your “Boo” with the truth about all your hidden secrets”, as he confides.

Bristol-based singer/songwriter Jamie Beale dances through infectious and vibrant indie-pop in his latest single Champagne People. Accompanied by a one-shot music video, Champagne People features a sweetly addictive sound sprinkled with gorgeous vocals, forming a beautiful soundscape that explores the change that comes in someone while in pursuit of success and fame, forgetting who they are, where they've come from and who their true friends are. That's a sonic diamond.

Champagne People is taken from Beale's debut album Hello Nimbus due for release on November 25th.

Post-punk duo DEUX FURIEUSES aims to raise awareness and bring light and hope to the world through their powerful, razor-sharp music. Taken off of their highly anticipated full-length LP Songs From Planet Earth due for release on November 11, Our Day Will Come is a spine-tingling fusion of forceful punk rhythms, fervent vocals, and acute lyrics that will get your blood pumping.

Deux Furieuses say about the song: “Our Day Will Come” was written during the COVID-19 pandemic at a time when we couldn’t sing out loud for fear of aerosol transmission. ‘Sing it out without any fear’ was hope for the future”

Emerging London-based indie folk rock artist, Sean McKinney aka Morning Tourist brings the first taste of his upcoming debut album The Endless Eve (January 2023), with his single Small Flame - an alternative folk ode to the strong moments of love which don't last long and thoughts are filled with what-ifs and parallel realities, dreams, and decisions. A wondrous anthem that soaks McKinney’s radiant vocals in a warm bath of acoustic guitars, emotional lyrics, and lush, vibrant harmonies.

The Pearl Harts - More

The artistically unique duo The Pearl Harts fuse together powerful instrumentals and fiery vocals to create an undeniably intoxicating experience in their latest single More. Taken from their forthcoming second album Love, Chaos due early next year, More is a finely crafted song of rock perfection that drags you in a thunderous storm of thoughts that greedily ask for more, and more, and more... 

The band explains: "More is a sassy, sexy, post-ironic stab at the consuming world that we live in. One can be encouraged to ‘have more’, ‘do more’, ‘expect more’, ‘be more’. The amount of ‘more’ is overwhelming — it’s like a never-ending hamster wheel. Where does it end? Where is the satisfaction?... Interestingly, the point we observe is that the people who have the most always feel like they are entitled to “More”. Whereas those who generally feel like they need “More” are told they are too much.”

Red Light is taken from Canadian Alt-Rock band Crones' newly released album Laugh Freely, Laugh Often. Unbridled vocal chops, wild guitar riffs, punchy bass runs, and stormy drums compose an explosive new-wave flavored soundscape that poses the question of "why go through life so quickly & intensely if we all ultimately end up at the same destination".
