We really have some corkers for this week’s NMF, and that’s no April fool! Indie, pop, folk and rock are the essence of the track below with each standing out on their own merits. As always, click the pics for a listen.
Colyn Cameron – Fault Lines
With a gentle and warm flow, Fault Lines by Vancouver-based artist Colyn Cameron is a beautiful listen. Expressing his search for deeper meaning or an unconventional experience, Cameron builds wonderfully simple yet bright rhythms that ebb and flow in perfect harmony. The great listen after a hard day’s work.
Sum Sun – Kids Again
Sum Sun provide a catchy electro-pop song that grows into your consciousness and refuses to let go with Kids Again. The bi-coastal bad successfully play on clever stops and beats, fusing in a nostalgic 2000s flow and perfectly produced vocals that make for an awesome package. When the summer hits, this is going off.
Cassidy Mann – Tropical Sour Candy
Cassidy Mann entwines acoustic roots with gentle electronic textures to create a blissful sound in Tropical Sour Candy. With a stripped-back pop-laden chorus bringing it all together, Mann’s wispy vocals float over the subtle layers as her emotional-driven lyrics caress the soul. A song that will remind you of those coming-of-age days when everything was hazy but fun.
Youproblem – Wasting Time
Cute, upbeat and quirky, Wasting Time from Youproblem is a playful indie alt-pop song that really comes alive in the chorus. Light and airy yet able to unleash a poetic pop mentality, it’s a well-written track that grows in strength the more you listen. Indie-Pop perfection.
