The latest signing to Rama Lama Records, Kluster, is jumping in with a creative blend of all things indie rock, and they’re pulling it off quite successfully. The song’s structures seem to dance around a tight mathy-prog vibe, but the space behind is constantly being interlaced with noise and elegant melody. The vocals from Linnea Hall naturally provide an infectious hook, especially in the way she curls the notes off at the end of each phrase. This track’s full of energy and creativity, and in the end, it’s as impressive a debut single as I’ve heard. Expect a full length in the very near future from the label.
Those of you in search of dreamy pop from Sweden need look no further than Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes. The up-and-coming act just dropped this delicious new single from their forthcoming EP. It opens with a delicate guitar line walking over the percussion. Vocals slowly enter picture, taking on deep tones to match the song’s mood. Eventually, they rise into the ether, shimmering in the most captivating manner…with added touches from the band providing more textural depth to the tune. Look for Four Waters to drop on November 24th via Rama Lama Records.
This track may be a week old, but that doesn’t mean it’s getting any less fresh. Melby are a Stockholm psych pop group that should be on your radar– this new single, “Cross” that they just put out proves that. The group will be releasing their debut EP on Rama Lama Records soon and if it’s anything like the song below, it will be filled with psych-twingedguitar riffs, gorgeously smooth vocals, and bouncy percussion to make you shake it. Vocally, I’m reminded a bit of Wye Oak‘s Jenn Wasner, but the guitar has a bit of a bite to it that makes me think about the work of St. Vincent. The song finishes nicely with a touch of synthesizer which adds some psych flair to to the tune. Take a listen below and keep an ear to the ground for more from the group.
