The Lovepools – Island Of My Own (Spotify)

“"The Lovepools" have released another Synthpop dynamite, to keep us active and interested in old good sound. The Summer spirit is still here and those funky loops can hit directly in our brain. Are you ready to dive in the cool waters of a sunny island? Just let your imagination follow this sound!”

-Nagamag.com

"Island Of My Own" is a summery pop-rock song by The Lovepools which features a bright production driven by an evolving synth riff, 80s drum loops, and funky synth-bass runs sounding in the territory of Prince and Michael Jackson. The instrumental is spearheaded by an embellished vocal performance by lead singer Anthony Shea, who sings of beaches, storms and isolation.

The Lovepools are no strangers to musical inspiration from video games and this energetic single from them is no exception. Singer, Anthony Shea attributes much of the song's lyrical inspiration from the gaming title: "Stranded Deep" which is an ocean survival game involving a plane crash near a series of deserted islands. The single's artwork is also a direct inspiration from the graphics and visuals the game offers. One night while playing the game, Anthony began to wonder what it would truly be like to attempt survival on a deserted island. Questions of isolation, civilization and moral philosophy began to present themselves to Anthony who quickly transmuted these ideas into song form which quickly became "Island Of My Own".

Island Of My Own was written by Anthony Shea and completely produced, recorded and mixed in Anthony's bedroom with Aria Cruz lending a hand as co-producer. The band used "24K Gold" by Bruno Mars as their mixing guide-track and Anthony finished the production and mix of the song on the 50th mix. Jorge Espinosa of Tropic Culture Studios retakes his role of mastering engineer which now marks his fourth completed master for the band.

The Lovepools new single, "Island Of My Own" will be released worldwide on all digital platforms on Tuesday, August 31st, 2021.

Bjorn Rydhog – Let’s Not Get Old (Spotify)

“Very fresh release from Bjorn Rydhog with positive mood. The sweedish artist has a pleasant Indie sound with some retro taste, which bring nostalgic memories in our minds. Also clear and well-built "Let's Not Get Old" can surely attract our attention.”

-Nagamag.com

Bjorn Rydhog (swe) releases the single “Let’s Not Get Old”, from his upcoming third EP. Together with the producer Johan Sigerud (JRSS), Bjorn Rydhog continues to take his melodic indie pop further into an electronic and beat-based realm. Melancholic progressions are blended with a modern retro sound inspired by Dua Lipa and The Radio Dept. A logical continuation of their previous collaboration, the singles ‘Just to Be with You’ and ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Alone’ which were picked up by the Swedish radio.

"The single ‘Let’s Not Get Old’, has a celebratory and hopeful feel. This time the music goes even deeper, trying to express the beauty and love that’s all around. Music that’s perfect for listening alone under the starlit sky, as well as accompanying the warm and sweaty post-pandemic party nights. A musical companion guiding us over troubled water.

Wallners – Dracula (Spotify)

“The bright title of track -Dracula- can instantly cause attention. It traces a clear thread of narration, style and integrity. Probably one of the few works where Indie & Dream Pop are so competently matched. Valuable sound and professional mix!”

“Яркое название трека -Dracula- моментально акцентирует на себе внимание. В нём прослеживается чёткая нить повествования, стиль и целостность. Наверное, одна из немногих работ, в которой так грамотно подана энергетика жанров Indie & Dream Pop. Выверенный звук и профессиональная подача материала!”

With "Dracula" Wallners take a step further in their development and also in the expansion of their unmistakable, mystical-wonderful sound. The music video is once again provided by the award-winning director Rupert Höller, who most recently won the Austrian Music Video Prize with the video for Wallner's single "All Again" was nominated.

The newcomers Wallners - four young siblings from Vienna - feel comfortable while dreaming and playing with thoughts. The story of Nino (20), Max (23) and the twins Anna and Laurenz (25) almost sounds like a dream itself: After years of tinkering in the living room, they sent demos to various labels without any great expectations. Never ever would they have imagined that they would land straight at Universal Music. But you can hear why: The quartet's debut single compares to a gaze into an enchanted kaleidoscope, presenting itselfas an unmistakable and highly polished sound. Wallners’ hypnotic dream pop will take theirlisteners on an exciting journey somewhere between illusion and reality.

OVRGRWN – Wasteland (Spotify)

“Discover the unique approach of "OVRGRWN" in the Synthwave scene. The San Francisco-based duo offer an ultra melodic track based on electronic soundscapes with characteristic retro taste. Also the silvery voice of Danae adds more positive energy in the whole mix.”

Blending the synthscapes of ‘80s film scores with contemporary indie pop, San Francisco-based duo OVRGRWN has developed a remarkable creative formula that is richly atmospheric, sweetly melodic, and frequently willing to tap into its dark side. Balancing a seriousness in the music with genuine enthusiasm, the group’s songs captivate listeners with immersive production techniques and a serene singing style.

OVRGRWN consists of Brandon and Danae, two California natives who met in 2012 when Brandon answered a “drummer wanted” ad on Craigslist to be part of a garage/surf rock project Danae was organizing. The two formed a creative synergy over six years of playing together in the band before branching out into new musical territory with OVRGRWN.

The group’s debut EP, O Well, landed in 2019 and immediately resonated with fans of synthwave and indie pop music. The early success of the album put them on the radar of retro synth label FiXT Neon, which signed the group to a deal in 2020. O Well was re-packaged and re-released through the label later that same year, and OVRGRWN has new material scheduled with FiXT Neon for early 2021.
