Loving this new track from Los Angeles-based trio, Cannons.

‘Down on Love’ is synth heavy, and lavished with guitars. It’s not making us down at all!

Priest – Broken

Priest - Broken

Priest – Broken

It’s been a while since we wrote about some synth pop, but it’s spring time, so why not!

Florida-based synth pop duo Priest (formerly X priest X) have released brand new track ‘Broken’.

It’s modern pop that glides subtly between 80s lo-fi pop and sharply syncopated rhythms that fit like a glove for a John Hughes film soundtrack.

It is second single from their forthcoming debut album ‘Priest’, which is to be released on 5 May via Swedish label Emotion.

Sounds like: BLSHS, The Human League, Crozet, Chvrches, Zola Jesus, Sky Ferreira, Grimes, College

For Esmé – Just Yet

For Esmé - Just Yet

For Esmé – Just Yet

For Esmé is Toronto-based band that is giving us some real deep electronica feelings right now.

The band consists of three friends, Martha, Nathan and Dave, who all met through a mutual friend.

Dave filled in last minute for a show in Montreal and enjoyed playing with For Esmé so much that he packed his stuff into the tour van the next morning and moved to Toronto.

The echoey vocals from Martha on their debut track ‘Just Yet’ are accompanied by lush pulsating beats. The track has been co-produced by James Bunton.

Sounds like: Chvrches, The Naked and Famous, Priest, MS MR, Robyn, Lilt, Prinze George, Purity Ring, GEMS, Vogue Dots, NONONO, Mt. Eden
