Apollo LTD – Misfits

Apollo LTD

Meet indie pop duo Apollo LTD.

It’s the first time we’ve heard of the band, but what we can say is their ability to combine retro-smooth production, with electronic synths and falsetto makes a highly addictive, mesmerizing sound.

cln – Fade to Grey

cln

Australian artist cln makes a melancholic declaration with his new single ‘Fade To Grey’.

The groovy and downtempo song was born following cln’s experimentation with new sounds and textures, and may not fit his usual “sound”, but that’s the way he likes it.

Torn Palk – Juliana

Torn Palk

Torn Palk‘s new single, ‘Juliana,’ is pure, sun-soaked bliss.

The musician, who remains anonmyous, drifts his music between lazy guitar riffs and seaside soundbites.
He describes the single, “Juliana’ is about a situation in which you feel fully connected to your surroundings. This can be a place, a person or memories of both. It’s a simple love song.”

It’s out now on Absent Mind.

Sounds like: Summer Heart, Washed Out

Akurei – Stockholm

Akurei

Exciting new talent, Akurei shares his new single ‘Stockholm’.

Conjured up during his solo trip across Europe, ‘Stockholm’ was actually written on his phone in a hostel in Berlin, and covers the topic of loneliness and the longing for a connection to encounter while travelling alone.

Co-produced with Golden Vessel, the track effortlessly switches between hip-hop and pop worlds. Golden Vessel also filmed the stylist DIY video which can be viewed here.

Sounds like: LANY, The 1975
