Lorelei – Pale

Australian band Lorelei have released their third single in the shape of Pale. It’s a spiralling, ethereal dream-pop track that, like their previous work, echoes to the ghosts of 1980s 4AD. This is due in no small part to the voice of Claudia Schmidt who delivers yet another delightful vocal performance. Lovely despite the sadness … Continue reading

The new single from New York’s Lightning Bug is a magical moment for these ears. The Onely Ones mixes dreampop, shoegaze with ambient and experimental music.

Boy With Apple – Green Eyes

Green Eyes is the new single from Gothenburg based Boy With Apple and is the follow up to January’s debut single Make Me Feel Needed/Living Space.
