Music Review: Wotts – No Take Backs

Music Review: Wotts – No Take Backs

Music Review: Wotts – No Take Backs

Wotts is a duo Indie Pop band from Ottawa, Canada, and this past month they released their latest single called “No Take Backs”. This song reminds us of bands like Foster the People, MGMT, Tame Impala, M83, and other artists in that plane field. No Take Backs is a truly remarkable song with plenty of smooth and chill atmospheric sounds in the background while the foreground has plenty of catchy vocals and lines to take us through the clouds. We love the vibe of the song, it gets us in a stress-free mood. Who needs a joint when you’ve got Wotts playing? We hope this duo brings us more masterpieces in the future!

Song of the Month: Jake Buckley – Sleeping with the Lights On

Song of the Month: Jake Buckley – Sleeping with the Lights On

Although this song might seem new to you, Jake Buckley is not new to music. His new single titled Sleeping with the Light On is a great example of the genius within to write killer music. Recently, after many years of being in other bands and writing music for others, Jake made the decision to go solo and finally explore his own creativity. Listening to his latest release we can hear him getting through his own personal storms and all the latest positive changes. Jake struggled with alcohol and drug addiction throughout his life and has been sober for 3 years now. We can clearly see the strength music has given him and all the inspiration he has gained from this rebirth. His new song is a feel good anthem anyone can turn up on a fucked up day, it will cheer you up and give you the energy to keep going. One of our favorites and our Song of the Month for a reason!

Music Review: Title Screen – Sometimes

Music Review: Title Screen – Sometimes

Today we are pumped to showcase a new indie/bedroom pop solo act by Andrew Harnisch called Title Screen. Andrew started his solo project back in 2021 and just released his very first 70’s inspired single titled “Sometimes”. He wrote, produced, and partially mixed his song and self-released it on June 10, 2022. What we can say about this song is that it gives us a break and reminds us to keep the wonder in our hearts alive. A sweet, innocent, and British-sounding tune with its electric keys, indie drums, and friendly lyrics, we might just listen to this when all else fails on a gray day. You will enjoy this track if you love any of the Beatle’s solo acts.

Music Review: Pocket Sun – Never Mind

Music Review: Pocket Sun – Never Mind

A soothing synth-pop song with dreamy female vocals and sparkling highs, we enjoyed every bit of Pocket Sun’s new single titled “Never Mind’. This creamy single from their latest ep release named Binocular makes us feel like taking a road trip within a 1977 Aston Martin on California’s Highway 1. It’s tender, hypnotic, and all of its composition is magical! Pocket Sun is a truly remarkable UK band that includes just enough landscapes and textures for those seeking something intimate and soothing for their ears. We say that Never Mind and the entire Binocular EP is insanely worth a listen and we would highly recommend the music in its entirety.

Music Review: Jean-Marvell – Hopelessly Addicted

Music Review: Jean-Marvell – Hopelessly Addicted

Have you ever tasted true love? Then you must know how addictive it can become if you continue to use it for the taste and the hit. Such is the story in Jean-Marvell’s first single titled “Hopelessly Addicted”. His new song will leave you with a lingering and vibrant melancholic feeling after just one listen! Based in the UK, Jean-Marvell has entered powerfully and with a heart-winning attitude with this first release, which is enjoyable to hear. The song shines through with its punchy 80s sounds and weekend-like vocals. We have been left yearning for more music and hope to see an entire EP or Album in the future. And we are more than happy to be making him this weeks FRESH PICK!

Music Review: Dust Cwaine – 90’s Darling

Music Review: Dust Cwaine – 90’s Darling

Dust Cwaine is an indie pop/alt-pop singer-songwriter and Drag Artist from Vancouver who is ready to take you back to the ’90s with the newest single titled “90’s Darling”. An overall great song and well-produced track by Josh Eastman, this song is nothing short of magical! Its musical essence is silly, and nostalgic and opens the door to release the inner child you’ve been trying to mask. 90s Darling is the first song released for an upcoming full-length album titled “Arcana” which is due to release in September of 2022. Overall we can’t wait to hear more youthful sounds from this colorful artist. It was an enjoyable listen with fun vocals and just enough mentions of VCRs and Tamagotchi. Nothing more to say than that! We are looking forward to hearing the album soon.
