Margot Polo – This Old Thing

Margot Polo

Margot Polo is back, with a softer approach to his usual electronica infused pop. His new song ‘This Old Thing’ is as nostalgic and emotive as anything we would expect Ben Gibbard to write, and reflects on Polo’s emo roots from back when he was growing up in California.

SYML – Where’s My Love

SYML

SYML

Spine tingling stuff now from SYML, the project of Seattle native Brian Fennell (also a founding member of Barcelona).

SYML means ‘simple’ in Welsh, but ‘Where’s My Love’ is anything but.

Written with cinematic use in mind, SYML likes to weave together bare piano, minimalist synth, string-scapes and soaring vocal melodies into a textured, emotive soundtrack, evoking movement and visual imagery with sound.

SYML’s new EP ‘Hurt For Me’ is out on 9 September.

Sounds like: Phoria, Radiohead, Nordic Giants
