Hailing from Grand Rapids, MI, Major Murphy make dreampop inspired by the lighter side of the ’70s — more Laurel Canyon than yacht rock — with a lovely magic hour vibe to what they do. (Great harmonies too.)

Austin indie-pop 5-piece Sun June have released their new album Somewhere. The gentle sway of their country leaning pop songs seeped in melancholy, as if each subtle turn of phrase was always grasping for something just out of reach.

L’Impératrice offer a nice alternative: a trip back to the seventies and eighties, in a dark, mysterious club, illuminated by disco balls and sequined dresses. One girl and five boys make up this collective of musicians from Paris. Guitarist Achille Trocellier and bassist David Gaugué are definitely cornerstones in the band’s search for groovy rhythms, reminiscent of Chic. Two keyboardists join them in this hedonistic party, adding entrancing, synthetic melodies played with vintage equipment. Disco and funk come back to life in the hands of these agile performers.
Parisian disco six-piece, have released their latest single, “Peur des Filles.” The sarcastic new wave single is the second from the band’s upcoming second album, Tako Tsubo, coming March 26.

Lead singer of acclaimed indie band The Kooks, Luke Pritchard, joins forces with his singer-songwriter wife Ellie Rose. Together they are DUO, a brand new musical pairing formed in the red hot heat of passion echoing sounds of French pop and a heady sense of intimacy.
Sharing a fondness for sixties and seventies French pop music and with an evident musical and physical chemistry between the two of them, DUO is an all-out passion project. Both possessing an impeccable talent for songwriting in their own right and their voices coming together in perfect harmony, it is a partnership that not only works romantically, but also musically.
Their self titled album is a chic, cinematic 11-song ode to connection, kismet, lust and sensuality. DUO is songs from the heart and, occasionally, the hips.
