Danish dream-rock act Moon Loves Honey craft a gorgeous sound, led by the dual-attack vocals of Jeppe Dengsø and Stine Drejer, who harmonize beautifully throughout stunning track “Before I Crash”. It’s a subtle combination, one that works perfectly.

PolyAnna was formed in Brooklyn, NY in the winter of 2016 by two bedroom producers, Austin Emerson and Samir Dahmani. Their debut album Known: Unknown was recorded during the summer of 2016 using now-obsolete equipment.

That effort featured an up-front dual vocal approach, showing calm retrospection amidst an energetic chorus. With that in mind, his new ambient direction comes as a bit of a surprise, though not really as much when you consider his eclectic music […] The post Ryan Summers – ‘F51.01’ appeared first on .

Freddy Hale is a Swedish-American artist who crafts an infectious blend of hip-hop, soul, and R&B, exemplified on new single “Troublemaker”, where trickling guitars, range-packed vocals, and a tightly constructed hook make for a pleasant effort. The primary hook finds Hale spelling out the track’s title, over an effervescent synth pad and the aforementioned guitar […] The post Freddy Hale – “Troublemaker” appeared first on .
