The muses of La Musa: Tuvaband

Tuvaband was dreamed up by the multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer extraordinaire, Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser. Infusing the air waves with some serious Indie Rock eclecticism, Tuvaband has racked up a hefty 40 million total streams on Spotify; this artist is no stranger to critical acclaim. Coming back to bite, her latest offering New Orders is an album that unfurls all of her creativity – and we can’t get enough.

Drawing inspiration from culture-shaping artists like Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins, and David Lynch – Tuvaband’s oeuvre oozes feminine mystique. Traversing soundscapes from Indie-Pop, and piano-driven Folk, to transcendant Post-Rock – multitudes are wrapped up into one neat package. With Tuvaband’s soft, lilting vocals added into the mix – you’ve got a recipe for greatness.

The muses of La Musa: Ellie Goulding

Much like her predecessors Kate Bush and Imogen Heap, British vocalist Ellie Goulding stands at the forefront of independent-minded mainstream pop. With her unique soprano warble and knack for writing catchy yet emotionally earnest songs, Goulding quickly rose to the top of the U.K. charts with her 2012 debut album, Lights. Her folk-inflected electronic pop sound increasingly drew from electronic influences, touching upon dance music and ambient synth pop .

English pop sensation Ellie Goulding has dropped a new track titled “Easy Lover” featuring the renowned rapper Big Sean. The new single was released alongside an official music video directed by Sophia Ray.

Since the very beginning of her music making, the career of Blackpool singer songwriter Rae Morris has been one in continual ascension. Drawing influences from the Feist and Kate Bush, her emotive, electronic folk pop sound looks set to reach even more ears.

Now she returns with her first single since 2018, ‘No Woman Is An Island. A perfect example of how honesty, truth and freedom lie at the core of this new songwriting phase for Rae – a celebration of self-love set to lush strings and sparse beats.
