Artist: Haiku Hands
Album: Haiku Hands
Haiku Hands have a style of dance-pop that’s incredibly refreshing and exciting: it’s rebelliously fun and free in a way that feels totally authentic and unique. From their self titled debut album, Jupiter stands out with bright funk guitar and punchy vocal lines.
The beautifully arranged strings and sensitive vocals give this R&B a peaceful, intimate, romantic feel. It’s clear Rhye has captured something special.
Artist: Slow Pulp
Song: At It Again
This song comes in moody with crunchy guitar and cymbal smashing drums, but sensitive vocals and moments of lightness at the end give it a transcendent energy. Find it on Slow Pulp’s upcoming album, Moveys, out October 9th!
For this release, Hauskey has taken his psych-pop breakout-single and stripped it down to it’s bones, only further proving how good the songwriting itself is. Slow is bright, chilled out, and groovy, with a chorus that’s absolutely undeniable in any iteration.
Song: Let Down
Some really solid indie-rock songwriting on this one. Of the song’s meaning Michigander/ Jason Singer says: “I usually get my hopes up about most things in just about every situation in my life. I tend to dream big and usually feel pretty down when things don’t meet my sometimes unrealistic expectations. I’ve been trying to be a lot more patient with life and just enjoy the journey.”
