Technicolour Beat – Oh Wonder

by Vanessa - March 1, 2015

“Technicolour Beat” is the latest release from the impressive Oh Wonder duo, who continue to prove their songwriting abilities with each monthly unveiling. The just-under-three-minute cut evokes a brilliant elegance that is evident with each release, but here the beauty is as discernible and tangible as ever. Tender lyrics and beautifully understated production make “Technicolour […]

Trinity – Gabe Nandez (Video)

by Nikos - March 1, 2015

If this is the first time you are listening to this song then there is no need to worry about watching the video immediately. What I suggest on the other hand, is to press play, close your eyes and let this song take you somewhere, anywhere. With the use of a beautiful synth progression throughout […]

Silent Alarm – Frett (Video)

by Vanessa - February 11, 2015

U.K. two-piece Frett has unleashed a beautiful video (much credit to director Harvey Pearson, who’s responsible for some amazing Aquilo vids) to accompany the spectacularly sparse “Silent Alarm”. Frett’s minimalist sounds have always been a bit left-field, which is exactly what first stole my attention back in March 2014. “Silent Alarm” brings sluggish falsetto and […]
