4am – More.

4AM

New girl-boy, DIY duo, 4AM, leave us wanting ‘More.’ with their new track.

Tradiio Exclusive: Interview with Vaarwell

Vaarwell by Tomás Monteiro

Vaarwell by Tomás Monteiro

Lisbon quartet Vaarwell formed in late 2014 and have been making music and touring ever since. They are currently preparing their first album, which we can expect in late 2016.

After being named Tradiio’s ‘Artist of the Week’, we decided to find out more…

How did you meet and why did you start making music together?

We all studied in the same art school and we were studying music production. Since we were all from the same class, we eventually got to know each other better and decided to try making music together and we think it worked out well!

Describe your sound in three words.

Mellow, Simple, Genuine.

We also discovered fellow Portuguese artist Isaura on Tradiio. Do you think the music scene in Portugal has a lot of offer the rest of the world?

Absolutely! We personally think that the Portuguese music scene has never been better and more diversified. There’s a lot of potential in some Portuguese projects.

Where do you cite your musical influences from?

We all came from different backgrounds when it comes to music genre, so our influences vary from indie rock to folk and electronic music, to name a few.

We love new music at Indietronica. What new music are you listening to?

We’ve been listening to Lapsley, Haitus Kaiyote, Ayelle, Benjamin Clementine and Hippo Campus.

We’ve invested in Vaarwell. Have you? Listen to more of Vaarwell’s songs and support them at tradiio.com/vaarwell.

Premiere: Moushumi – Red Like Mine EP

Moushumi

Moushumi

Moushumi is an unsigned 22 year old singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn.

Although new to the scene (‘Red Like Mine’ is her debut EP), Moushumi is used to live performances, having frequented open mic nights throughout the last year or so. She cites influences from the likes of Banks, London Grammar and Daughter.

Her EP was written earlier this year, in just two months, and showcases her love of mellow, minimal, indie pop.

The EP starts with killer track, ‘Alone’. Moushumi explains “It is about knowing someone who seems to do everything in his/her power to push people away, and for some reason, they just can’t stop. They might even like it.”

The influence from Daughter is definitely present in ‘Flies’ and the same can be said for London Grammar in the slightly more upbeat, ‘Stay’.

Final track ‘More’ offers a little bit more sass and urgency, but is still worthy of credit, with it’s brooding bass and steamy vocals.

We are expecting to hear a lot more great music from Moushumi in the near future.

Purchase the EP here.
