Jordo Ingle – That Door: Soul-Achingly Arrestive Alt Folk Pop

https://open.spotify.com/track/3a1UG4GyY13NZEQAVq6y0D

Up and coming Alt Indie Folk artist Jordo Ingle’s latest single That Door is soul-achingly arrestive. From the moment you’re exposed to the vibrancy of the tone, the energy in the intricately enthralling rhythms, and Jordo Ingle’s distinctively uplifting vocals, you’ll be hooked.

The electronic instrumentals may give That Door a contemporary appeal, yet, the artist has gone right back to the roots of music production by providing aural escapism which also shares a unique lyrical perspective.

That Door demands repeat attention. And you definitely won’t feel begrudging while you give in to the demands of this soulfully beguiling earworm.

You can check out Jordo Ingle’s single That Door which was released alongside the equally as mesmerising single Take My Hand via Spotify now.

Jacob Mondry – The Winning Sperm: A Sticky-Sweet Indie Folk Celebration of What it Means to Be Human

After hearing Jacob Mondry’s single “Colour Me Blue”, we were expecting more quintessentially charming records to follow. What we definitely weren’t expecting was a quintessentially charming track titled “The Winning Sperm”.

Before I pressed play, I knew it would win me over. Any single which strips back the romanticism about what it is to human will always be worth its weight in aural gold. Sure enough, we weren’t disappointed.

The devilish wit in the lyrics paired with the accordantly innocent Indie Folk vocals and the gentle acoustic instrumentals is something you’re going to have to hear for yourselves to fully appreciate.

Not every artist could get away with such a borderline crass topic and still win you over. Perceptibly, Jacob Mondry isn’t your average artist. And it’s not only us who think so, after signing a deal with Universal Records, it’s easy to expect big things to come from the LA-based artist.

Wednesday’s Wolves – But You Settled on Me Like Dust: Contemporary Folk Concordance

When a track title is as poetically curiosity-piquing as Alt Indie Folk Pop artist Wednesday’s Wolves’ latest single “But You Settled on Me Like Dust” pressing play and revealing the nature of the soundscape becomes nonoptional.

Our expectations were exceeded as frankly, there’d be no way of anticipating the effortlessly effervescent harmonies and the dizzyingly hypnotic allure. There’s a simplicity to their sound. But within the frill-free production is arcane alchemy which is poised and ready to feed you haunted yet optimistic alchemy.

The Oxford-based duo has been crafting concordantly ethereal tracks since 2013. Since their inception, they’ve mastered, matured and polished their sound and amassed plenty of hype around it. I can only imagine how haunting their live shows are. If they’re impressive enough to get on the BBC’s radar as one of the most promising up and coming acts, I’m sure they’re good enough for yours too.

Syne – Midas: A Concordant Attack on Modern Capitalist Greed

So many of us are thinking it, but few are able to encapsulate the exasperating sadness which we feel as a consequence of modern capitalism quite as poignantly as Syne.

If you’re looking for a transcendental aural trip, look no further than the ambiently immersive latest single from Syne. The Indie Folk Pop soundscape is incredibly ingenious in the way it uses primally compelling organic rhythms to serve as the perfect platform for Syne’s mindful lyrics which will hopefully inspire plenty of people around the world.

The single was released on 19th April in honour of Earth Day by the exceptional up and coming artist who is using their arrestive talent to try and bring light to the all-important issue. But rather spoon feeding you existentialism, you’re left with chills as the mellifluously progressive single unravels.

René Le Feuvre – Here for You: Indie Folk Pop Has a New Upcoming Icon

“Here for You” is the debut single from René Le Feuvre; the up and coming Australian singer-songwriter and performing artist who takes inspiration from the likes of Ben Howard and Dean Lewis to create his own distinctively honeyed sound.

There are very few Indie Folk Pop singles which are soft and gentle but possess such a powerfully arrestive potential. There is absolutely no reason why René Le Feuvre won’t be able to follow in the footsteps of Icons such as Ed Sheeran. With the ability to instantaneously draw emotion from you right from the very first verse with his melodically immersive style there will be little that could get in his way on the way to the top.
