If you’re a fan of The Weeknd then you might recognize Mieke from her starring role in the video for his song “The Zone” back in 2012. Now the model/singer/songwriter has reemerged to release the first single off of her debut self-titled EP, “Sleeping Alone,” which was written about a close personal friend who, although strong and independent, often found herself seeking validation from the men in her world. Set to a backdrop of down beats and pensive lyrics, there is something “honest and raw, strange and vulnerable” about this track.

Few 17 year olds can say they’ve already had a successful music career but Olivia Eigelis an exception. At age 13 her all-girl indie pop outfit, Purple Apple, made a name for itself as the youngest act to ever play the legendary Chicago venue Metro, tour the Midwest, and perform at Lollapalooza. These days she fronts a new band, Wolvereen, who’s latest single the aptly titled “Seventeen,” could easily draw comparisons to Hayley Williams of Paramore.

Album:
Sunset City

From Calgary’s Blackbird Electric, this one’s a blend of acidic guitar riffs and hook laden vocals that wretch with the desire to be back in the warm yet sometimes devious clutches of the Sunset city herself.

Album:
Single

From NYC based indie / neo-psych band Field Trip, “Never” is awash in nostalgia and 90’s inflected synth sounds.
