The music, recordings and artwork are by Peter Laermans & Zowie Vangeel, 2 guys from Scherpenheuvel, Belgium. King Sigh is very 'do it yourself'. The album is completely instrumental, without giving in on the melodic-euphoric character of the songs. Unlike many instrumental music 'One Might Wonder' often has a spicy variation and compact dynamics. . In the past King Sigh won Puredemo on PureFM radio and was Cutting Edge Talent of the Week in Belgium.
“Cruel” is the follow up to DANI's debut single “Love U More”. The lyrics were not only intended for herself , but also for others who may have experienced the strange and disconnected feeling of being addicted. The feeling of wanting to make excuses for someone who you are aware, deep down, is influencing your life in a negative way. Every so often you will get this glimpse of beauty from them and you just want to feel and relive that moment again.
DANI grew up in a small town in Alberta, Canada and spent her youth studying various styles of dance and was classically trained in both voice and piano. Once she turned 18 and realized that Alberta could not elevate her music career, she made the move to Toronto and spent as much time as possible developing her sound.
In addition to her own music Stella Rio has been working on Canadian DJ's DVBBS latest Wicked Ways EP, which just came out. She's also been writing for the new Little Mix album Glory Days.
Don't Go Away is about meeting that special person and feeling that you’re connected on a deeper level and never wanting to let that feeling go. Most people can relate because deep down most people chase that kind of love.
“Hewing Crowns” is the first single from Her Harbour's sophomore release, and is the oldest song on the album. She chose it as the opening track and first release as I felt it introduced the space from which I started writing Go Gently Into the Night and that it could serve as a preface to the demons I attempted to quell in making the album.
Out on February 3, 2017 with E-Tron Records, 'Go Gently Into the Night' is about cycles. Her Harbour wrote the songs at a time where death felt omnipresent. This album has been her attempt at making peace with death as a character of growing importance in my life.
Edited by Mike Dubue, the video is made up of found footage from the 1966 short film “Silent Snow, Secret Snow” by Conrad Aiken. I wrote and produced the album in Ottawa and recorded with Dave Draves at Little Bullhorn Studio.
Debutante is the Zurich-based solo project of Chris Zimmermann, in which they blend droney shoegaze music with pop sensibilites and chiptune synths, ending up sounding like an odd blend of Boris, The Microphones and Giles Corey. With deeply personal lyrics about themes such as depression or growing up in a physically abusive household, the music varies between slow, mellow soundscapes and fuzzy, bass-heavy gut punches that capture their energetic live shows perfectly.
Covers is a compilation album of covers and remixes done by Debutante between 2014 and 2016. It includes reworks of material by Swans, Have a Nice Life and the OSTs of the video games ,The World Ends With You and We Know The Devil. There's also remixes of tracks by Life In Slow Motion and Abraxas Axents, aswell as a breakcore track he did with a Yume Nikki sample. The EP was released digitally in November 2016.
On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
