1

Todavia

Person from the EP Stay Self Released (June 2016)

Beautiful, anguished and affecting, Stay is an insight into an ever-raging emotional battle: a sublime work that consistently induces chills with its earnest attempts to grasp for self-worth and positivity admist the conflicting gaze of despondency and depression -- pits that linger hungrily at every turn.

Blocma

Krušovice from the EP Ordinary Love Self Released (March 2016)

Existing in a permanently menacing and intoxicated gloom, 'Ordinary Love' is a long-brewed concoction of anger, frustration and loneliness that roves only along the seediest, most dangerous neon-lit alleyways: discouraged, dispirited, and at a point where it's finally willing to take its drunken chances.

Pippa

Not a Thing from the EP Sweetlow Self Released (December 2016)

Smooth and casually seductive, 'Sweetlow' is an arrestingly dulcet debut: an ultra chill collection of languorous, low light allure.

I am Alice

Ashes from the EP Moth & The Meteor Self Released (September 2016)

Whilst enamouringly vibrant and pretty, delve a little deeper -- beyond the bold, bright and twinkly production -- and the debut from I am Alice also possesses a potent undercurrent of mono no aware: a temporally fragile nostalgia that is intensified by the beautiful, optimistic vocal delivery.

Desert Dollhouse

Gaze (demo) from Demos Self Released (August 2016)

A stylish, post-apocalyptic nighttime meandering, the first set of tracks from Desert Dollhouse opt to take the scenic route on a drizzly trek across a rebuilt, sleazily exuberant metropolis.

einarIndra

Thoughts from the EP Stories Möller Records (May 2016)

A sincere, accomplished communication of emotional reverence, the sophomore release from EinarIndra is an expansive, grandly atmospheric force: a richly stirring comprehension of life.

Dæva

Dream from the EP Beta Persei Self Released (December 2016)

A generator of daydreams, the magical debut from Dæva is an enchanting contradiction, for whilst, lyrically, it exists in the real world, the production suggests a wondrous weightlessness -- allowing one to fledge from gravity's grasp and float away to a far less-testing version of reality.

LANNDS

Wide Awake from the EP Wide Awake In A Sleepy World Self Released

Possessing a striking melodic ease, 'Wide Awake in a Sleep World' is a humble but confidently delivered debut, one that pairs vocal melancholy with determined, unostentatious defiance.

SALFUMÁN

Bunic from the EP C Y C A Self Released / Love Our Records (September 2016)

Canorous and inviting, the latest from SALFUMÁN is dreamy ear candy: a mellisonant mix of soft, enamouring vocals and stimulating production that one can't help but be willingly swept along with.

Mabe Fratti

Key from the EP Careless Bajo Presión Records (August 2016)

Characterised by a wonderfully low-key elegance, 'Careless is a flowing and delicate debut: a becoming collection of intriguing melodies that wind mainly around perfectly maintained manor gardens, but occasionally dart into the dark, sinisterly inviting woods that are situated temptingly adjacent.

Unii

The Moment from the EP Poet From The Northern Sea Northern Lights (May 2016)

Awash with lonely, drifting, droning soundscapes, 'Poet from the Northern Sea' plays like the accompaniment to a solitary, bittersweet voyage of interstellar exploration: a journey of atmospheric serenity and immense wonder punctuated by a nagging, melancholic awareness of one's inexorable isolation.

SOLR

These Rooms from the EP Young Wild Self Released (November 2016)

Haunting, ghostly and acutely ominous, 'Young Wild' is a lone human voice now heard only in the very darkest areas of the family home; it's owner retreating from the malevolent demons that prowl the corridors, ever-closing on their target.
