Traces – ‘Imaginary Life’

traces-imaginary life

Traces new EP landed this month featuring dense layers of swooning rock and melodic shoegaze. The Montreal trio (Richard, Kerri and Patrick), first got our attention with last year’s self-titled EP and their latest is another solid listen. ‘Imaginary Life’ delivers catchy hooks that aren’t over-baked and guy/girl vocals with plenty of variety.

Diverting Duo – ‘Ariel/Shadows’ [Video Premiere]


It’s a pleasure to present the debut stream of Diverting Duo’s new video, ‘Ariel/Shadows’. It’s lifted from the Italian duo’s third album ‘Desire’; a mix of dream pop, new wave and synth pop with an 80s/90s feel. Sara and Gianmarco are based in Cagliari (the main city on the island of Sardinia). The eerie ‘Ariel/Shadows’ black and white video was shot in Sardinia’s Sette Frattelli forest. It’s a beautiful but otherworldly creation that is at odds with their sunny, coastal homeland. The ‘Desire’ LP is available now on digital and limited vinyl from Etch Wear and Deambula Records.

Good Morning TV‘s debut s/t EP has landed via Requiem Pour un Twister! The French project is the work of songwriter Bérénice Deloire and producer Barth Bouveret. ‘Ordrinary People’ is a stunning psych pop tune with loads of grit. Highly recommended listening for fans of Broadcast, Stereolab or Melody’s Echo Chamber.

Baby Fire – ‘Water’

baby fire-water

‘Water’ is the eclectic debut single from Baby Fire; self described as 50% Cocteau Twins and 50% Shonen Knife. The Tokyo trio create a unique, dreamy, slacker punk sound that’s difficult to pin down. Hence my terrible description! Keep an ear out for their forthcoming EP. In the meantime, pick up a copy of ‘Water / Indigo’ here.
