Dunes Day – Vertigo: Chorally Concordant Indie Jangle Pop

Many up and coming Indie artists struggle to set themselves apart with distinction. But Dunes Day executed it with discernible ease in their second single “Vertigo”.

It’s impossible not to warm to their softly progressive style which constantly switches up the instrumental style while keeping the tone of the guitar-led arrangement beguilingly concordant.

Their indulgently sweet mix of Jangle Pop and Psych offers an instantaneous hook. From there out, you’re gently left to drink in the choral guitar notes which find the perfect synergy with the vocal harmonies.

Vertigo is a stunningly produced single which puts a modern spin on Psych Pop bands we’ve fawned over for decades. We might have a lot to thank the Beatles for, but it’s about time we started giving bands such as Dunes Day recognition for their contributions to the airwaves.

Matte Black Nova – Love Song: Lo-Fi Indie Psych Pop

“Love Song” may not be the most inspired track title I’ve ever seen, yet, when it labels such a prodigal soundscape you can’t help but appreciate the irony.

Matte Black Nova is an up and coming artist with a perceptible level of pioneering talent which makes room for creative expression the same time as treating the listener to a deeply immersive single.

The Lo-Fi Psych Indie track feels far more human than what you could ever come to expect from mainstream artists; the melodies are still sticky sweet, yet there’s the extra added element of resonance and connection to the energy behind the single. There’s a raw candidacy behind Love Song which leaves you with the compulsion to really lock into the lyrics which sit in perfect synergy with the simplistic melodies.

So, if you’re all about discovering truly distinctive artists which allow us to enjoy completely original compositions of sound, you’re not likely to be disappointed with Love Song. You can check out Matte Black Nova’s latest single Love Song for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
