Blaudzun is a music project run by Dutch artist Johannes Sigmond.
Having already received the highest accolades in his home country, Blaudzun is ready to take the rest of the world on with his new single ‘islands_’, a piano-led, spirited song that is immediately comparable to that of Arcade Fire or Of Monsters And Men.
Sounds like: Arcade Fire, Interpol, Of Monsters And Men, Like Swimming, The War On Drugs, Editors, Spoon
We’ve been excited about this release for a while now. After a hiatus of over two years, Swedish indie-pop trio LikeSwimming return with their politically charged single ‘Strike A Pose’.
Written before the Trump administration, the electronic locomotive is supercharged full of energy and it seems like a fitting time to share.
Disclosure: I am Like Swimming’s publicist at the time of writing.
‘Strike A Pose’ is the lead track to be taken from Like Swimming’s ‘Resistance’ EP (out on 20 April via DigSin), which is the first part of a double EP – ‘Resistance / Relations’. It’s the band’s attempt to get all their political frustration out in the first part, ‘Resistance’, to make room for the ups and downs of personal battles in the second part, ‘Relations’, coming out later this year.
Sounds like: Chvrches, Chrome Sparks, Of Monsters & Men
