Singer-songwriter (and multi-instrumentalist) Veronica Bianqui offers a promising new voice on the indie scene. Her latest single, “Victim”, is both tribute and affirmation in addressing the loss of her sister to opioid addiction.
“This Is Not A Movie”
The lofi, experimental indie sound of PAVVLA comes to us from Spain. Her debut album, Creatures, earned the songwriter a horde of Spotify streams and a spot at SXSW. PAVVLA returns with this new single, “This Is Not A Movie”. The song is lovely and the video proves equally touching.
The Fresh & Onlys
“Wolf Lie Down”
San Francisco is going through a Garage Rock Revival and The Fresh & Onlys are very much a part of that movement. “Wolf Lie Down” is the title track from the band’s 2017 release through Sinderlyn Records. Check out The Fresh & Onlys performing “Wolf Lie Down” live at Tapetown and then head here to score the album.
Lauran Hibberd’s kittenish voice reminds me of Lily Allen and her buoyant brand of indie-folk will have you bouncing around in no time. This Isle of Wight singer-songwriter is one to watch.
“Now is Light”
The Michigan-based 3-piece known as LVRS (livers? lovers? levers?) offers up a dreamy number with “Now is Light”. There’s a slightly old-fashioned sensibility to the indie-dream-pop of LVRS that matches the found footage aesthetic of the music video.
This six-piece orchestral indie-rock ensemble from Jackson [TN] comprised of self-proclaimed music nerds has a foot-stomping sound perfect for road trips with friends or backyard bonfires. Get ready for the uplifting energy of Coopertheband’s “Rebels”.
Pleaser has a slacker drone sound that takes me back to indie’s early days. The band is part of a musical collective of like-minded musicians known as Figbox where it seems bands swap players for a multitude of projects. Who knew there was a such creative energy tucked away in Davie [FL]?
