The Death Of Pop – ‘What A Day’

Trementina – ‘Kisses In Your Eyes’


Trementina (‘Turpentine’ in English) have posted ‘Kisses In Your Eyes’, the first song from their forthcoming full length ‘Almost Reach The Sun’ – coming soon via Bym Records (Chile) / Vinyl Junkie (Japan). Their first (legit) video was filmed by Matias Illanes and director Matias Illanes at their home, and on the streets of Santiago with skater Loco Cheby! It’s Trementina’s most polished and confident creation yet, and points to a strong LP. The shoegaze quartet are just about to hit Japan for a tour with Astrobrite at the Whitenoise Superstars Fest. They’ve got all their ducks in a row (and are sounding awesome)!

ColoreSantos – ‘Forest’


Fantastic new psych pop from Santiago, Chile! ‘Forest’ is a jangly gem from a newly formed quintet called ColoreSantos. There’s loads packed into this tune, the latter half really impresses, (particularly the bendy instrumental break)! If you’re keen for more, check out their first demo ‘Toy’ over at Soundcloud.

Eyes Behind The Veil – ‘Besides’


Michael Tenzer (of Savage Sister / Wild Patterns) has produced a beautiful ambient / drone album under the moniker Eyes Behind The Veil. The Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist combines hazy guitars, synths and vocals on ‘Besides‘ with cinematic effect. It’s no pop album, but it’s still surprisingly melodic. Listening to ‘Dream Idols’ is like taking a warm bath! For fans of White Poppy, Grouper or Benoit Pioulard.
