Indigo De Souza releases new album “All Of This Will End” + announces new EU/UK dates | Watch the visualiser for “The Water” | Saddle Creek

“I wrote ‘The Water’ as an exercise to get myself out of a writing block. I was just writing with no expectations, and I didn’t think I was actually going to end up using it for anything. It became a really simple exploration of my love for moving water, and its presence in my life since I was a child, as well as the scattered memories of a childhood friendship. [Guitarist] Dexter [Webb] helped me flesh out the demo, and it took on a new form— a combination of both our spirits, and both our deep connections to water. Water has always been so magical to me. And the way the earth and stone around it are so strong and stable, holding steady the pathway for its passing through. I feel that way in my life. Like my body is the ground, and my life is the passing water. I find acceptance in all the moving parts.”

NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO – GAE VINCI, CAMELIE out April 28th (dream pop, vintage electronics)

Camelie is the fourth single chosen by Gae Vinci to introduce his debut album “Lonely Ballads”, to be released on May 26th on Bloodonthetracks Records, and it’s another piece of the jigsaw defining a multi-faceted sound, spawning from rough shoegaze to more classical ballads, with the fil rouge of a romantic saudade filtering from every note.


After making his mark as a songwriting force to be reckoned with last year (with the soaring debut ‘Let’s Talk’ and its anthemic follow-up ‘Boys Yard’), Dylan James’ first release of 2023 provides another glimpse into his psyche. ‘I’m Not Superman’, out 28th April, carries the weight of the world in the singer-songwriter’s trademark heartfelt lyrics, emphasising he’s ‘just a normal man’ and that ‘this poker face won’t last forever’. The single also sets the stage for and provides the title of Dylan’s upcoming debut Expected To Fly, produced by Matt Owens of Noah and the Whale and due to be released later this year.


Once again, the conversational interplay between Natalia and Ruby drives the track’s momentum. Acoustic guitar underlines confessionally vulnerable vocals. Against a backdrop of ethereal beat-craft, an instantly hypnotic hook echoes with a lilting harmony, “Only you know how to love me, when I’m by myself, it kills me.” It barely contains the mania of attempting to grasp at fleeting memories of an ex—in a quiet last-ditch effort to hold onto the relationship.
