TORRESCOWBOY | GUILT
Taken from her forthcoming album Sprinter, Cowboy Guilt sees Torres playing with a parade-style beat and a playful, almost nursery rhyme-esque riff that we’ve quickly found ourselves labelling as the Brooklyn-based singer songwriter’s best effort yet.
MAX AND THE MOON | HARPS
Next up we have an indie-pop effort from up and coming band Max and the Harps, who are gearing up to release their debut EP. Harp, which the LA-based quartet say is about “how it feels to operate obsessively in a different reality than the source of attraction we began romanticizing about in the first place,” sees the band experimenting with sounds reminiscent of MGMT’s Grammy-nominated album Oracular Spectacular to glorious effect.
COLLEAGUES | TALK IT OUT
Packed to the brim with glittering 80s synths, this instantly catchy pop effort from Colleagues is one of those rare songs that has both the ability to make you want to get up and dance, and make you want to down a glass of wine and stare vacantly out of a window while it rains. It’s a magic formula, and one we know you’re going to love.
SWIM DEEP | ONE GREAT SONG AND I COULD CHANGE THE WORLD
Cheekily titled One Great Song And I Could Change The World, the second single taken from the band’s forthcoming second record sees them switching lanes – albeit only slightly – and expanding their sound into a more groove-based territory, all whilst still retaining the vibe that made us all fall in love with them the first time around.
HONNE | TOE TO TOP
A distinctly summery midtempo, Honne’s latest effort feels like one of those tracks you play after the afternoon BBQ’s died down and that sixth glass of cider is just starting to hit in. Although it may be one of the least obvious tracks on this week’s list, its subtleness quietly blossoms into something undeniably memorable.
