WARNING: The following list is made up of some great new artists that are making some beautiful music.
First on our list is “Human Animal” by Los Angeles via Phoenix native Marissa Jack aka The Golden Hippie. This song summons the most charming elements of groups like Bastille, Florence and the Machine, and Adele. This great epic single comes in anticipation of a full length release which is slated for a late 2014/ early 2015 release via Hundred Handed records.
Next up is High Highs consisting of Jack Milas and Oli Chang. Their music is ethereal and moody, but never dark and broody. When asked to describe the ideal environment for listening to High Highs’ new EP, lead-singer and guitarist Jack Milas answered, “Just before dawn, when the party has ended.” That’s exactly the vibe I get when listening to “Glamorous Party”. Also check out “Ocean to City”
Closing up our short list of great songs for today is the Australian electro duo Syre & Fresko who collaborate wonderfully on beautifully unique music.Their latest EP just dropped and their song “Gonna See Miracles” is indeed a revelation. The song is electro pop bliss with blazing garage blues guitar and vocals that induce ooze as the bassline squeezes during the verses of the song. Give it a listen!
What three songs get you through your Thursday?
