Dream pop duo EGOISM move the body and soothe the mind on new single SORRY
“I wrote this song as a bit of a fuck you to the people who never say sorry for their own mistakes, but then always demand an apology, even if I’m the one who was hurt the most. Easily the most empowering song we’ve ever written ha-ha. We were really going for a The Veronicas meets Slowdive kind of vibe, essentially blending the music of our childhood with the music of our teenage years.” – Scout Eastment (vocals/guitar)
Experimental Musician Billy Yfantis Releases New Music And Video
Billy commented on the new release: “After the experimentation with strange sounds and machines, I decided to invest time and effort in straight edge electronic music. A late midnight live session close to a noisy Athenian road, led to the decision about this recording. It is a mysterious trip to isolate yourself from the surrounding noise and focus on your emotions.”

Mousewater – ‘Panic Stations’ Single
Panic Stations, the debut single from MOUSEWATER, brings to light the loss of control that the pressures of everyday living can manifest as anxiety for many.
“I was riding to work on my scooter one morning, it’s about an hour commute, the ride always gives me time to think and sometimes song melodies pop into my head. Wearing a helmet, nobody can hear me, so I play with the melody and lyric. When I get to work I would find some secluded spot to sing the idea onto my phone before it disappeared forever. This was the genesis for a number of the songs on the album, including Panic Stations” – MOUSEWATER

NYC dream-pop group Barrie share “Michigan” // Announce Singles 12″ – out Oct 12 on Winspear
Barrie, Dom, Noah, Sabine, and Spurge – collectively known as Barrie – began releasing music together in the early months of 2018. Their first single, “Canyons,” arrived in February, quickly resonating with fans of ambient, dreamy pop. It wasn’t until June that the group shared their second single “Tal Uno,” a shimmering tune that recalls 80s synth tones and features haunting vocal melodies. The third and final single in the series, “Michigan,” also features a shift in production style, this time opting for the more traditional rock-band instrumentation of drums and guitar.
“It was a lot of fun re-imagining ‘broken’ using strings and orchestral instruments. It was a pretty funny and cool moment when we first heard the strings playing the chords, we were like ‘oh, we wrote a really good song!’ Amazon Originals always has interesting and unique content. We are proud that we get to be a part of it,” says lead singer Mitchy Collins.
BOSTON MANOR Release “England’s Dreaming,” New Album “Welcome To The Neighbourhood” Out Friday
BOSTON MANOR’s second album Welcome To The Neighbourhood will be released this Friday and the band have unveiled a final taster with their new song “England’s Dreaming,” which is streaming now. Vocalist Henry Cox says that it’s “Probably my favourite track on the record. The song’s about waking up one day and realizing you have nothing in common with your fellow man.” This feeling of isolation and an over-riding sense of bleakness is a thread that can be followed through much of Welcome To The Neighbourhood. It’s an affecting collection of songs that inhabits a world rife with poverty and drug addiction, boarded up shops, and a population unable to escape a predicament they didn’t even know they were in. The song is now available on iTunes and Spotify.
