Remington Super 60 – ‘Talk With You’

Remington Super 60 are a Norwegian outfit formed by songwriter and producer Christoffer Schou, who over the course of two decades has established a reputation for lush, retro-flavoured indie-pop brimming with warmth and dreamy nostalgia.

In mid-March, the trio – Magnus Abelsen, Elisabeth T & Christoffer Schou – released a brand new seven track EP ‘Nouvelle Nouveau’ – a veritable treasure trove of serene, beautiful and beguiling pop perfection. Lead track ‘Talk With You’ captures the essence of the EP in three beautiful minutes – offering pure pop perfection and escapism at the click of a button. Lush, dreamy vocals flow above a gently undulating groove as soft drums patter beneath a breezy air of softly strummed shimmering guitars that sooth like lapping waves and gently swaying palm trees at a beach. Hypnotic, seductive and escapist brilliance!

Maida Rose – ‘Where Do We Go’

Maida Rose is dream-pop pairing of Roos Meijer and Javièr den Leeuw from Dutch seaside city the Hague. 

Early days it maybe, having two tracks to their name, the duo have already left a mark on 2021 with debut ‘Harmony of Heartache’ and current single ‘Where Do We Go’. It is a richly melodic and dreamy, underpinned by a sense of wistfulness, and endearingly languid, relaxed feel. Smooth, breathy vocals swirl around a gentle strum, shimmers of guitar, subtle-bass-groove and mellow melodies cast in lush, dreamy and beguiling atmospheres. ‘Where Do We Go’ pangs with heartfelt nostalgia, nostalgic for a dream that has passed but it has a lovely, human optimism, and leaves a warm wistful glow and a feeling that all things – good, bad or indifferent – eventually pass. Utterly beautiful, beguiling and hypnotic.

Tertia – ‘Emily’

Tertia is a  London / Dublin based multi-instrumental artist, songwriter and producer with a flair for charming, synth-splashed indie-pop.

A classically trained musician, Tertia simultaneously incorporates this with lush synths, electronics, stylized production and meditative vocals to create an exciting lo-fi / indie-pop brew – exhibited beautifully on new single ‘Emily’. Lifted from Tertia’s recently released debut EP,  Tertia’s Mixtape, ‘Emily’ is a lush, melodic and dreamy escape. Electronics flutter and synths shimmer and fizz while soft beats patter at a pace below as Tertia’s smooth honeyed vocal tones reign supreme, flowing over us with an ease and breeze. ‘Emily’ is serene, addicting and utterly spectacular – a perfect intro to both Tertia and debut EP, Tertia’s Mixtape.

Air Devi – ‘Move Without Place’

Air Devi is the project of Philadelphia singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Devi Majeske.

The project began life as home recorded lo-fi indie pop before releasing debut EP, swanning about, earlier this year. Majeske has followed that up with a brand new single called ‘Move Without Place’. A song about a search for freedom, truth, and belonging. Inspired by a desire to understand and connect with her Indian roots, ‘Move Without Place’ blends a love of punk rock music alongside her Indian heritage into a colourful confection of woozy, starry-eyed dream-pop. Hazy distorted guitars pair with melody dripping vocals above light, bright but quick-paced percussion that brushes through a swirling cloud of hazy and magical charm. It is bright, lush and shimmering delight filled with whimsical charm as it gently see-saws between woozy pop, psych brushstrokes and flourishes of intoxicating Indian sound. It is a richly rewarding and utterly divine single.

Listen to ‘Move Without Place’ below – you won’t be disappointed.

Von Csoke is gearing up to release a new LP, Almoon, on June 5, and ahead of which, she has shared ‘Dream Around’. Adorned with all the aforementioned attributes, ‘Dream Around’ whisks us away on a woozy waltz through a sun-drenched haze awash with layers of warm fuzz and distortion. Anchored by dark, hypnotic and reverb-laden vocals and intriguing lyricism, slumbering melodies undulate amid a nonchalant air as guitars purr and jangle, rich with melodic allure and swelling emotion. It is a mesmerizing slice of evocative, ethereal and sun-drenched musings – utterly divine.

Listen to ‘Dream Around’ below – the new LP is out on June 5.


CIEL – ‘Same Old Times With U’

CIEL are Brighton-based, Dutch dream-pop trio fronted by Michelle Hindriks (also of Sväva).

Together, the trio concoct a heady brew of starry-eyed dream pop with shoegaze, psych and indie brushstrokes – demonstrated exquisitely by new single ‘Same Old Times With U’. Lifted from the forthcoming debut Movement EP, it is less uptempo than its predecessor ‘Days’ but chock full of lush guitars, soft vocals and dreamy synths. Drifting gracefully along with an otherworldly charm and marked by an air melancholy and nostalgia, as Hindriks’ stunning voice takes centre stage and carries the song forward while guitars jangle amid a woozy wonderland below.

Another sumptuous single from their debut EP which is out now. Listen to ‘Same Old Times With U’ below:

Many Voices Speak – ‘Want It Kept’

Sweden’s Many Voices Speak – aka Matilda Mård – has a real knack for beautiful slumbering whispers of lush dream pop; something offered in abundance on 2018 debut Tank Town.

The good news is that Mård is back in action with a new single called ‘Want It Kept’, and it is divine. The master of misty-eyed, melancholic and hazy indie, Mård opens with a slowly swirling, shapeless mist that seeps forward engulfing her sad but elegant and beautiful vocals as they hover above slowly waltzing groove and undulating melodic bubble. Delicate, dreamy and truly beautiful, ‘Want It Kept’ will have you transfixed with its beguiling beauty and smouldering emotive draw.

HUSSY – ‘YLMD’

Originally from the North East of England, HUSSY is the moniker of South London-based dream pop purveyor Sophie Nicole Ellison, a multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist with a knack for deep and textured songs, layering fuzzy guitars to create spellbinding soundscapes.

To date, this predilection and skill has been on show with singles ‘Forever’, ‘Playtime’ and ‘Slayer’ and HUSSY is back with a new track ‘YLMD’. It is harder, rockier and more thrilling than previous singles while retaining continuity in the dreamy stakes. Opening with driving guitar work, energetic percussion and Ellison’s own clear, glacial tones, it explodes out of the speakers grabbing your attention from the off. First and foremost ‘YLMD’ is a powerful, rousing and thrilling anthem but it also showcases Ellison’s brilliant ear for melodies, but interspersing them with massive drums, jangley guitars and covered with layers of warm fuzz and distortion, and a lingering sense of melancholy. A self-empowered love letter to herself; it is a massive tune, bristling with energy and emotion amid the sparkling haze.

MIYNT – ‘Vacation With Bond In South Of France Part 2’

It is a smooth, stylish and suave theme for an imaginary Bond movie that slinks and struts on the back of groovy beats and funky guitar through a shimmering haze of swirling psych-textures and lush flourishes of grandiose orchestral pop. ‘Vacation With Bond In South Of France Part 2’ is lavish, sultry and smooth orchestral pop that will leave you all the better for letting it into your life.
