New Music From The Inbox: Bells Atlas, We Were Lovers, The Dodos, FEVERS, and Olenka & The Autumn Lovers
Artist: Bells Atlas “Incessant Noise”
Album: Bells Atlas
Bells Atlas has hit the nail on the head by calling their sound “Afro Indie Soul.” They seamlessly blend moments of tinkering percussion with easeful vocal harmonies.
Sounds like: Far from incessant noise.
Link/Listen/Watch: STREAM IT HERE.
Artist: We Were Lovers “Islands”
There is something incredibly appealing about We Were Lovers. It’s not that this is a sound we haven’t heard before, it’s just that there’s a youthful breeziness to it and that kind of thing is forever.
Sounds like: Indie island appeal.
Artist: The Dodos “Carrier”
Being in California at the moment, I’ve had the chance to get to know a bit about the local music scene. Jam bands are still very much a thing out here, but none of these bands understand melody like San Francisco’s The Dodos do.
Sounds like: Warm, and driving off in the distance.
Artist: FEVERS “Dance Cry Dance”
This band continues to impress me with their dark and danceable electro sound.
Sounds like: Electro soul.
Artist: Olenka & The Autumn Lovers “Misaligned”
Album: Hard Times
Olenka & The Autumn Lovers are a case of East meets West. While their sound possesses some of the more traditional elements of American country and folk music, and narratives that evoke a certain back porch loneliness, vocals have a much more distinctly Eastern European feel.
Sounds like: A true sentiment.
