Louise Lemón is a Swedish artist classified in the genre «death gospel», with rich reminiscences of the first Fleetwood Mac, bands of the spectrum of The Dead Weather or the darker PJ Harvey, with a deliciously evocative vocal record and a huge personality. It will please all fans of other contemporary female vocalists like Myrkur or Chelsea Wolfe.
The “yéyé noir” of Juniore has always been rooted in the cinematic as much as the musical. The Paris outfit’s blending of 1960s French pop, hazy psychedelia, seamless pop, surf grooves and lush orchestration feels as intertwined with big screen aesthetics as greatly as it does being found in the grooves of vinyl. So it makes perfect sense that the band would sooner or later find themselves appearing on more film and TV soundtracks.
JOINA presents her first record, “Companyes”, a tribute to all the women who have had the courage to break the silence and raise their voices. Poetry written in Catalan, combined with sung melodies and a sound environment of great instrumental richness, are what characterize JOINA‘s first record. Songs with a strong feminist burden and social demand, the result of personal experience and a deep will to share and collectivize these struggles. In an eclectic style, “Companyes” combines influences from hip-hop, funk, jazz, flamenco and classical music. Tonight in concert at La Nau.
Squirrel Flower is the alias 23-year-old Ella O’Connor Williams adopted for herself when writing songs and poetry as a child. Williams was born on August 11th 1996, the hottest day of the year, still inside of a translucent caul sac membrane, surrounded by amniotic fluid. Born with a membrane between her and the rest of the world, yet still very much connected to and dependent on a larger life force. It’s this origin story that inspired the name of Squirrel Flower’s debut album, I Was Born Swimming. Squirrel Flower’s music is ethereal and warm, gushing with emotional depth that the listener can step into like a warm bath.
Soccer Mommy is the stage name of Nashville-based singer-songwriter Sophie Allison.
At only 20 and with such a magnificent second album as Clean, the New York artist is already producing focussed, clean-cut tracks that move between folk and untamed pop, sounding like a collaboration between Elliott Smith and Taylor Swift.
Soccer Mommy has announced her new album Color Theory, out February 28th on Loma Vista. She’s also shared a new single, “Circle the Drain,” following previously released tracks “Lucy” and “Yellow Is the Color of Her Eyes.”
Fenne Lily’s work is subtle but impactful. Her words rise and fall with a weight of emotional sincerity. Her voice exchanges gritty, hushed, supple caresses with pitch-perfect feathery highs. Delivering lyrics of articulate observation and lived understanding, Lily is one of those artists that once witnessed can’t be forgotten or unheard.
Bristol songwriter Fenne Lily, the rising queen of relatable sad ballads has published her debut album: ‘On Hold.’
With a voice that dances between gravelly and ethereal, songs that proudly explore themes of same-sex love, and a style that’s androgynous and effortlessly cool (think Harry Styles meets Linda Perry meets peak-Strokes) New York-based singer LP is one of the most fantastically queer musicians America’s ever produced. Her last album was published in 2018.
