From the biggest superstars to the ambitious self-starters we comb through it all to highlight to you what we’ve been digging, the tunes that caught our eye, and the recommended selections that make the notifications worth it. This is New Music From The Inbox!

Artist: Golden Cinema

Song: “Dead Ringer”

Album/EP: Reels

Sizzling and slightly melancholic power pop rock with a massive chorus and an eternally catchy bass riff, “Dead Ringer” sees Golden Cinema carving their way into the Inbox once more. Moody and laconic vocals, tastefully discordant melodic guitars, and the aforementioned chorus blowing the tune wide open with harmonies and a stacking, building chord progression make the PEI/Toronto’s group single a memorable one.

Artist: Glossy Clouds

Song: “Buy All That You Want”

Album/EP: Glossy Clouds

Sweltering glam rock highlighted by a crackling bass line and featuring an alluring trio of choristers, “Buy All That You Want” comes to us via French duo’s Glossy Clouds’ debut self-titled EP. An evasive and enigmatic tone bleeds through this tune as it swells and shifts, with the backing vocals and a spiritedly chugging melodic guitar emboldening the effort. Could see this one working in a Bond film.

Artist: FUNFUN

Song: “Fed Up”

Album/EP: Single

A catching optimistic release from up-and-coming Moroccan producer FUNFUN, “Fed Up” really hits the mark. The slower pace of this EDM single gives its pitched vocals plenty of space to breathe and resonate, as the brightly percussive beat builds and wanes. The bouncing melody seems to find just the right places to slip in and out, adding to the reflective ephemeral tone of this tune.

Artist: Marlow

Song: “Blame It”

Album/EP: Single

Jangling and sinuous guitars, sweeping synths, and a gravelly lead vocalist add some enchantment to the warmth of Marlow’s “Blame It”. The BBC favourites from East Sussex envelop the listener in their twinkling indie stylings, crafting an emotive sonic bed for the single’s contemplative, self-searching subject matter.

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
