Feathers – Let the Chaos Feed my Evolution: Your New Synth Soundtrack to 21st Century Existentialism

Bringing salacity to Synth Pop is the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Feathers who pairs together sniping lyricism with veraciously stylised beats. I’ve never been as excited for a drop as I was checking out Let the Chaos Feed my Evolution; the latest track by the breaking artist which was released on February 3rd. The bass-driven beats constantly feed energy into the mix and the break may be subtle but finding yourself in a sticky-sweet melodic chorus never gets old.

Feathers might have found her voice in Queer piano bars, but it’s instantly perceptible that with her uniquely ingenious lyricism, magnetic vocal style and ability to put together an immersive Industrial-laced Alt Rock beat she was made for much bigger things.

Let the Chaos Feed my Evolution may be a dancefloor filler, but with Feathers’ magnetic personality entwined in the mix consider it to be an essential multipurpose hit for your playlists.

Mia Stegner – Dust: Clockwork Concordance from One of the Most Intelligent Minds in Indie

Mia Stegner is the prodigally blessed up and coming artist responsible for the exceptional single “Dust”; a macabrely mused single about self-construction leading to self-destruction.

But don’t expect your usual flowery lyrics from the 19-year old artist, Mia Stegner has a quaintly expressive style which will leave you instantly enamoured by her ingenious approach to her sound. There’s a slight touch of the Amanda Palmer madness in Dust due to her ability to pack plenty of syllables into her verses and make a mean melody from a ukulele. However, it’s much more innocent – never falling into the realms of infantility, instead the friendly keys wrapping around the light instrumental arrangement accompanies dark lyricism and imagery.

MALICIOUS PATRICIUS – climbinsideureyes: Hypnotically Concordant Genre Defiance

The up and coming master of mesmeric melodies has made his return with a brand new EP featuring the hauntedly cathartic single “climbinsideureyes”.

With elements of Shoegaze, Indie, Psychedelic Rock and minimalist Electro the single unfolds as a dreamscape offering a generous serving of transcendence. While climbinsideureyes may borrow many elements from a smorgasbord of genres, it is an expressively endearing work of genre-defiance.

The reverb-laden mix of instrumentals bring the catharsis while the phantasmic vocals bleed into the soundscape, still allowing the poignant lyricism to sting you with the visceral amount of passion. With a sound you’d expect to hear on a David Lynch soundtrack the London-based artist could very well stand to be the prodigally concordant son of experimentalism.
