Listen: Wild Belle, “Dreamland”

Sibling duo Elliot and Natalie Bergman, otherwise known as Wild Belle, have released the deliciously sensual “Dreamland,” their title track. It’s an excellent follow-up from their first release, “Throw Down Your Guns.”  It’s addictive for many reasons, one of the biggest being Natalie’s soulful, raspy voice. “Dreamland” gives a more …

Listen: Frankie Cosmos, “Fool”

The gloomy weather in Jacksonville has me listening to moody indie beats and “Fool” by Frankie Cosmos fits perfectly. Frankie Cosmos is the beautiful product of creative genius Greta Kline.

Listen: HIGHS, “I Do, Do You?”

Every once in a while you’re lucky enough to find a new track you can’t stop repeating. I’ve been immersed in HIGHS all day today and their newest album, Dazzle Camoflauge, is my current infatuation. Their opening track, “I Do, Do You?,” is a soft alt-rock song that effortlessly welcomes …

Listen: Com Truise, “Silicon Tare”

My head immediately started bobbing as soon as it began. Show your friends this song and immediately feel …

Listen: The Lumineers, “Cleopatra”

Feel like dancing? Listen to The Lumineers’ title track of their new album, Cleopatra. “Cleopatra” sounds very similiar to the previously released track, “Ophelia,” with the use of piano and fast paced drums. It makes you think about the value of life, especially with the line, “But I was late for …

Listen: HÆLOS, “Dust”

Picking one song off of HÆLOS’ new ablum, Full Circle, was surprisingly difficult, but “Dust” immediately caught my attention. I love this song because different elements reminded me of Oh Wonder’s simplistic funk-pop and The xx’s distant, contemplative vocals. HÆLOS is a three-peice group hailing from London. They’ve been considered …
