As we near the end of September and the weather begins to get colder (for some of us, anyway…) what better than a fresh batch of awesome tracks to delve into? This week we have some solid lofi loveliness, politicised indie and chilled-out indie folk to wrap your ears around. As always, click the pics for a listen.
Chris Ho – Everything is Endlessness
Chris Ho’s Everything is Endlessness is a wonderfully realised track that explores themes of self-expression against warm, acoustic flows and powerful buildups. With an earthy contemporary folk vibe, his vocals are instantly welcoming, addictive, and playful. The drums push the track forward against wind sections that add a bright layer of intrigue. It’s just a fun track to listen to and you’ll find yourself going back for more.
Ve & Fasa – Osynlig
The third single from Ve & Fasa, Osynlig is a wonderful mix of chillwave dexterity that builds synthy layers into a highly competent sound. The ethereal vocals captivate, dancing around the settled flow before the music hits hard with a deep and meaningful edge. This mix of the serene to the soulful works well in building a dreamy atmosphere that you can just lose yourself in.
thomTide – mySakura
San Diego-based creative thomTide decided to release a song every two weeks this year, and the process hasn’t affected his music quality one bit. mySakura is a testament to this, a beautifully stripped-back lofi flow that builds against wonder and mystique. Based around embodying the spirit, the track dances, twists and turns to the beat of the drums, with the exhilarating vocals providing substance to the lyrics and atmosphere. A warm and inviting listen.
Clarke and the Himselfs – Weighted Down
Creating a buzz around her native LA performances, Clarke manages to enthrall and delight on new track Weighted Down. Consumed with thoughts about US politics during the Trump administration, the track looks back on this time through subtle yet fuzzy guitars gently moving the track forwards. It has just enough essence of lofi indie-punk edge to keep it interesting against a vocal performance that’s hard to resist.
