Norwegian indie-pop dreamers whose new album “Silent Treatment” is likely to lead to a raid on your bag of pop descriptive adjectives. Full of moody, broody, magnificent atmospherics, hugely admirable melodies and a bevy of knowing sighs, “Silent Treatment” is a balm for troubled souls.

Justin Nozuka

Seven years on from his debut album “Holly”, the New York-born singer-songwriter with the Canadian and Japanese background is receiving a ton of interest for forthcoming new album “Ulysses”. The beautiful minimalist hush and tender, breathless emotion of new track “Right By You” is what has many wowing about him.


The four Southern California siblings are having a moment thanks to people finally copping that their fizzy, hooksome, vigorous pop is tailormade for these days. From debut album “Talking Dreams”, check out “Cool Kids” and “Come Together”
