More Music from the Inbox
Here’s another offering of music submissions (see that link in the left-hand column?) that have made through the filters.
As always, feedback is welcome. And feel free to email the artists themselves. They like that.
Friska Viljor: “Passionseeker”
Album: The Beginning of The Beginning of The End
This Stockholm based duo has become known for applying happy music to sad lyrics. While this song is no exception, the chorus is great, and lines like “Am I enough? Should I be worried?” have a simple way of speaking to that insecurity in each of us.
Sounds like: Quiet observations and the simplest type of honesty
MF/MB/ “The Big Machine”
There is something completely strange and exciting about this band.
Sounds like: Perfectly balanced levels of massive attack and pulsating electro indie rock.
Anderson Council: “Where I Stand”
Although this acoustic song is still both unmixed and unmastered, there is something light and buoyant about this band.
Sounds like: Contemplation and the wind at your back
Album: Search Party
Toronto based quintet with an affinity for dance-floor rock. I love the power of a band that can make it feel effortless but know exactly how to make you move. Front-woman Elise LeGrow has a badass raspy voice.
Sounds like: Driving indie rock and late night confessions
Skinny Bitches: “Kiss So Pretty”
This is one of the very first releases from Canadian indie duo Skinny Bitches. The video definitely has sex appeal and with lyrics like “How do you kiss so pretty, and you lie so good?” they’ve already peaked my interest.
Sounds like: indie rock foreplay
