Caoi de Barra – Treehouse

Caoi de Barra returns with the weaving reverberated moods and tones of ‘Treehouse’. Centering itself around de Barra’s beautifully portrayed vocal acrobatics, the song has enchanting sense of place and pace. 

Seba Safe – Rainy

Seba Safe’s Rainy E.P. makes for a scene setting offering from the artist. Cast across a glistening production, songs like the serene title track, propulsive indie of ‘On My Way’ and widescreen ‘Afterlife’ highlight Seba Safe’s sense of style and sound.

Rachael Lavelle – Let Me Unlock Your Full Potential

Rachael Lavelle’s haunting new single ‘Let Me Unlock Your Full Potential’ is a treasure trove of sounds and textures, as the songwriter builds a world of slow-burn rise and fall passages punctuated by experimental shapes and twists.

Galia Arad – Does She Know

The tense feel and tone of Galia Arad’s ‘Does She Know’ rests itself upon a bedrock of moving rhythms, spacious production and Arad’s commanding vocal performance. Resulting in atmosphere setting offering that is truly compelling.
