New Music From The Inbox January 9, 2017: N-A-I-V-E-S, Said The Whale, Oh Pep! & More

By: Juliette Jagger (@juliettejagger)

Artist: N-A-I-V-E-S
Song: “Crystal Clear”
Album/EP: N-A-I-V-E-S

From wonky-pop powerhouse duo N-A-I-V-E-S, “Crystal Clear,” is a distinctly British, electro-funk jam complete with harmonic chants, shimmering synths, and blasts of raygun fire just for good measure. Everyone needs to know about these guys––their self-titled due drops January 27th.



Artist: Said The Whale
Song: “Step Into The Darkness”
Album/EP: As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide

After wading through some rough waters, Canadian indie-pop outfit Said The Whale has finally returned with a brand new song titled, “Step Into The Darkness.” Though the once quintet is now a three-piece, this track, which reveals a real penchant for focused, introspective, and heartfelt songwriting, is proof positive that this band is arguably stronger than ever.


Artist: Habit Hands
Song: “Flower Glass”
Album/EP: Wildly Idle (Humble Before The Void)

From singer-songwriter and guitarist Meg Duffy, aka Hand Habits, “Flower Glass,” is an intimately delivered bedroom-debut that hits your ear like a cool breeze, initiates a momentary shiver, and then blows away.


Artist: Oh Pep!
Song: “Wanting”
Album/EP: Stadium Cake

Melbourne folk-pop duo Oh Pep! have completely stepped into their own as songwriters on this, their latest release, a thoughtful, breathy, and lyrically rich track titled, “Wanting.”
