[Indie] Slow Skies – On The Shore

Slow Skies - On The Shore
slow skies
on the shore

Sometimes sifting through an endless stream of new music each day can be a little taxing on the ears, but it’s all worth it when you find something like this utterly transfixing track called “On The Shore”. Crafted by Dublin duo Slow Skies, it’s got such a beautiful ghostliness to it, gentle and understated, yet so powerful and consuming. Karen Sheridan’s unique vocals sound so fragile, as though on the verge of shattering into a million pieces, and when she coos long “oooh’s”, she does it with such emotion, like she’s finally exhaling after years and years of holding her breath. If the music wasn’t enough to touch the depths of your heart, then let the track’s poetic lyrics do the literal talking:

“Be the love that I am sure of”.

Slow Skies forthcoming Close EP is due out May 4th. We highly suggest you look out for it.

[Folk] Alela Diane – The Way We Fall

The Way We Fall

Alela Diane follows up her 2011 album Alela Diane & Wild Divine with promise of a new LP, titled About Farewell, which is set hit record shelves at some point later this year.

The first single from the album, “The Way We Fall”, is a melancholic introduction to Alela’s forthcoming LP that sees the Portland based folk singer lamenting about lost love over haunting guitar swells. As the song fades to a gentle close, the emotional turbulence of the first half of “The Way We Fall” slips into a delicate outro, as if realizing that despite the heartache, it’s better to have loved and lost than not loved at all …

Continuous play. What a wonderful concept. Don’t get us wrong, if we could shower you in music without having you lift a single finger, we would, but for now, one click isn’t so band. Ninjas aren’t that lazy.

[NEW] Laura Marling – Where Can I Go?

Laura Marling - Once I Was An Eagle
Laura Marling
Where Can I Go?

London indie folk musician Laura Marling will release her fourth studio album, Once I Was An Eagle, in May. Today, we get a taste of that record with “Where Can I Go?”, a lovely track that starts off melancholic and wistful, exact fingers dancing over an acoustic guitar, only to later be stirred up with a vigorous, bold confidence towards the end. Whether it’s her beautiful, captivating vocals, or the loud, hearty organ, there’s a real commanding and emotional power in Marling’s latest offering and we can’t wait to see what the rest of her LP will sound like.
