Silvia Nita – Vulnerable (Video)

“If you believe in love and independent feelings and you’re not afraid to be vulnerable in a stream of emotions, the song -Vulnerable- is just for you. Atmospheric, crystal electro & dream pop sound, with a dreamy and slightly aspiration vocal touch of -Silvia Nita-.”

“Если вы верите в любовь и независимость чувств и не боитесь быть уязвимыми в потоке из чувств, то песня -Vulnerable- для вас. Атмосферное, кристальное звучание electro & dream pop и мечтательный, с лёгким придыханием вокал -Silvia Nita-.”

“Vulnerable” describes the common fear of falling in love. The story is inspired by a dating stage where the desire for emotional attachment conflicts with the need to be independent. The bittersweet feeling of this journey is musically enriched by the alternation of electric guitar with violin, all on a steady electronic beat. This gives the song a dream pop/nostalgic vibe, being perfect to be listened to at night, when travelling or taking the time to reflect on life.

Silvia Nita is a singer-songwriter from Bucharest, Romania. Aged 21, she decided to take her passion and work with music to another level, debuting with the song “Vulnerable”. The single hints to the music style that is currently closest to her heart – pop, with some almost dark, dreamy influences. Silvia promises to only create and share music that resonates with her soul, whilst hoping to capture the pulse of society, especially the youth.

Ghostly Kisses – I asked the moon ft. Louis-ientienne Santais (Video)

“Composer and poet -Ghostly Kisses- created a truly fascinating creation. -J’ai demandé à la lune- draws musical canvas, in which the sounds of the piano naked and enveloping, this delicate and exciting voices affect all corners of our humble souls.”

“Композитор и поэт -Ghostly Kisses- создала по истине завораживающее творение. -J’ai demandé à la lune- рисует музыкальное полотно, в котором звуки голого пиано и обволакивающего, такого хрупкого и волнующего голоса затрагивают все уголки наших скромных душ.”

J’ai demandé à la lune – Indochine (paroles)

J’ai demandé à la lune
Et le soleil ne le sait pas
Je lui ai montré mes brûlures
Et la lune s’est moquée de moi

Et comme le ciel n’avait pas fière allure
Et que je ne guérissais pas
Je me suis dit “quelle infortune”
Et la lune s’est moquée de moi

J’ai demandé à la lune
Si tu voulais encore de moi
Elle m’a dit “j’ai pas l’habitude”
“De m’occuper des cas comme ça”

Et toi et moi
On était tellement sûrs
Et on se disait quelquefois
Que c’était juste une aventure
Et que ça ne durerait pas

Je n’ai pas grand chose à te dire
Et pas grand chose pour te faire rire
Car j’imagine toujours le pire
Et le meilleur me fait souffrir

J’ai demandé à la lune
Si tu voulais encore de moi
Elle m’a dit “j’ai pas l’habitude”
“De m’occuper des cas comme ça”
Et toi et moi

On était tellement sûrs
Et on se disait quelquefois
Que c’était juste une aventure
Et que ça ne durerait pas

Mint Julep – A Rising Sun (Spotify)

“Harmonic, spiritual and carefully composed Electronic piece awaited for March. A rising desire to explore the world of Mind Julep, makes us look forward to tasting an effort that is heading towards success.”

The Portland husband/wife duo of Mint Julep have been experimenting with dream pop for over a decade now, but their recent output has taken an even more introspective turn toward the intimate vein of bedroom recordings established by projects like Foxes in Fiction and their Orchid Tapes peers.

The latest single “A Rising Sun" from Hollie and Keith Kenniff’s newest record, In a Deep and Dreamless Sleep out March 19th on Western Vinyl, constructs this dreamy atmosphere with softly plucked acoustic guitar and a basic beat before smearing more layers of instrumentation over the course of the track. After Hollie’s voice comes in, tapping snare, dreamy guitar, and ambient synth flourishes take the song to a dreamy finish.

Cuushe – Magic [OFFICIAL VIDEO] (Video)

“Magic by Cuushe is a dreamy chillwave/pop song with sensual soulful vocals and beautiful melodic lines, delivering small rain drops of nostalgia around through a heartwarming sound design which gives a softness tickling to ears as a fresh fluffy pillow does.”

Following the big and bright return single “Hold Half”, today Cuushe shares “Magic”, the second single from WAKEN. The track features Mayuko’s distinct whispering vocals flowing in and out of the night drive-style electronic melodies. The “Magic” video is directed by Tao Tajima with animation from Yoko Kuno.

Mayuko Hitotsuyanagi puts clear outlines on her music with upcoming album WAKEN — a collection of vital, dream-pop centric beats and analog soundscapes woven with her newly freed voice, set for a November 20th release via FLAU. It moves through flamboyant analog synthesizers that seem to communicate with the universe, distorted guitars and mille-feuille-layered choruses. Wildly struck snares and beats recall the rave sounds of the ’90s, energetic, carefree.

MKSM – Know Your Love – Orchestral (Spotify)

“This song if had hands would be a warm hug from your loved one that goosepumb your whole body, when beautiful cinematic music, soft grooves and vocals with strong warm character join forces. Know your next love song here.”

KNOW YOUR LOVE describes one of many online dates that was meant to serve as a desperate attempt to numb the throbbing loneliness - but this time the strange suddenly feels familiar ...

How come you're just a stranger
Somehow I know your love

The deep baritone of the verses and the soft sounds of the string orchestra give KNOW YOUR LOVE something that you won't forget and that grabs you and takes you in. A dull hopelessness that has almost been accepted as a dark companion threatens to gain the upper hand. The use of the reverby indie guitar chords and the subtle percussion elements support the voice in the chorus as it leaps over two octaves - deep-seated disappointment turns into hopeful confidence.

The cinematic 'CHAMBER POP' number, produced by Maxi Menot, appears as part of the LISTEN TO BERLIN compilation and shows the singer, songwriter and violinist, detached from the tracks of his debut EP, from another, completely new side. MKSM shows how many sides and moods alternative indie pop can have.

Rook Monroe – Jolie (Spotify)

“Jolie from Rook Monroe on Wayward & Friends is a dreap pop song with funk and rock influences which generates a sweet morning atmosphere to start your day in good vibes. Sensational!”

Rook Monroe's debut single sets an organic tone in the first step of his earnest narrative. As it reaches the chorus, he lofts in falsetto the eponymous Jolie over finely crafted production from his close collaborators, Trackside (Tinashe, BabyJake, Selena Gomez). The driving track nonetheless dances tenderly, laced with a moving bassline and moody horns.

Crafted in LA as part of a yearlong process of musical discovery, Rook Monroe's upcoming self-written project was developed with Trackside, and will include contributions from the likes of Grammy Producer of the Year winning Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen)

Though Jolie is Rook Monroe's first original release, he is no stranger to the music industry. Having penned Rihanna's critically acclaimed 'Desperado' - and more singles for artists ranging wide, from Jeremih to The Chainsmokers - he summons all his influences into a rock influenced package for his passion project.

"Sometimes songs are simply meant to be enjoyed. This is one of those. Touching more on what’s felt, simply being human, than provoking feelings to place you in an emotion... which much of my music to come will do. Feeling, as natural as it may be, is still as confusing as our limited knowledge of the stars. Jolie is me, feeling."

Superheart – Don’t Look Down (Spotify)

Don't Look Down from Superheart, at Akira Records and his same titled ep is a well produced daydreaming anthem with a melody that will keep playing in your mind after it finished and soft dream vocals. What Superheart says about his music and will agree 100% his is a "dreamy underwater anti-gravity flying music".

George van Wetering – New Kid (piano version) (Video)

This year George is set to make his solo debut, starting with the release of his piano ballad “New Kid”, featuring artist Kristeen Young, mixed by the legendary producer Tony Visconti.

“You have to be a conscious artist to mess with the rules, and George van Wetering’s music embodies a free spirit that finds harmony with disparate elements and a pattern without a formula. This is music of the Non-Conformist. Here, the dark and the light intertwine to make some really great tracks with great electronic elements.” George van Wetering, Dutch singer and songwriter, was once part of the growing roster of foreign acts released by Chinese record company Modern Sky. In the US and the Netherlands, his albums were released by Zip Records / Sony. George has toured extensively across China, the Netherlands, Canada and the USA. “Taking cues from artists across the cultural spectrum, this is the industrial goth band before the EDM cult of personality took over”. George and his band gained a large following in China while also gaining traction in North America. He also frequently participated in China’s growing music festivals, including performances at the Strawberry Music Festival, World Expo in Shanghai, and the Modern Sky Festival in Beijing. Highlights of his shows in North America were performances at SXSW, NXNE, CMJ and the Sled Island Festival (Canada) at which the show was considered the highlight of the festival.

MOLTENO – Waves (Spotify)


Dream pop

MOLTENO Continues elemental theme with “WAVES”, a future ethereal dream pop immersion in the consequences of actions.

MOLTENO’s second release of 2020 transforms experimental electronic, dream pop and alternative R&B influences to an innovative astral plane.

“Waves” explores the butterfly effect of one small action; be that the words you say that alter a relationship, or the way a toxin can radiate from a drop to an entire ocean.

Produced by Amour Haider, Hans Engstrom and Jan Oldaeas and teamed with her future ethereal aesthetic, the shared artistry of MOLTENO’s musical & visual representation is utterly magical. With previous releases attracting support from BBC Introducing, Spotify Editorial teams, Get Some Magazine, Indie Obsessive and Audiotox amongst others.

All of MOLTENO’s music is born in her home studio, before being built up with her collaborators and she has taken her ethereal performance to the likes of Camp Bestival, Fractalight Festival Of Light and Camden Assembly alongside radio sessions with Shoreditch FM and Soho Radio.

‘Clear, controlled and evocative – MOLTENO’s vocal is pearlescent. it hovers over the shifting landscapes like the moon which it seeks out... Listen, intently, and you’ll be transfixed’ - Fresh On The Net

‘Shimmering, otherworldly dream pop’ - Earthly Pleasures

Comparisons are often drawn between MOLTENO and Bjork and “Waves” furthers their shared passion for elemental soundscapes that transcend planet Earth.
