Lavender Sunday has released their psychedelically sweet Indie Synthpop single “Keep Your Heart”

Keep Your Heart is the latest psychedelically sweet feat of Indie Bedroom Pop from Pittsburgh-based artist Lavender Sunday. It is also one of the most instantaneously accessible tracks we’ve heard this year.

With the escapism and the catharsis which the extended-length track offers, you can prepare to be taken on a distinctively soul-soothing aural trip. Hit play and you can expect to hear lush synths lead a kaleidoscopically soothing arrangement which creates the perfect platform for the light and choral vocals which will enamour fans of the Beatles of Shoegaze bands alike.

With the video game-style effects and the boldly high vocal notes, there’s a playful sense of experimentalism which adds an endearing element to the track. We’re already stoked to hear what Lavender Sunday has in the pipelines.

THE LON TALBOT GROUP make their debut with “Mrs. “K” is a Grandmother, Twice”

THE LON TALBOT GROUP have made their debut with the absurdly titled, yet inventively orchestrated single “Mrs. “K” is a Grandmother, Twice”; Expect a smorgasbord of Psychedelic Pop, Sweet Funk with a side serving of satirical Punk attitude.

THE LON TALBOT GROUP may have borrowed plenty of stylistic elements from the past, but the charisma which Mrs. “K” is a Grandmother, Twice was created with makes it a contemporarily irresistible and slightly guilty earworm. If you could imagine a mash-up between Magazine, Frank Zappa, and the Beatles, you’d get a good idea of the eclectic soundscape which is awaiting you if you press play.

There’s palpable up-vibe energy behind the up and coming band’s debut track, it’s going to be pretty exciting to see what follows.

Color Channel Releases “Meadows” – A Colourful Painting Of Sounds

Characterised with a particularly unique sense of texture in their sound, Color Channel will have you grooving along immediately to their brand new track “Meadows.” This Boston based group skilfully moulds a unique style through influences of dance, psychedelic pop and a little bit of funk as well, creating a sound which is truly authentic and inimitable. Apart from this, a strong sense of balance and equilibrium in sonorities can be observed in their music, where literally every sound is fundamental to make up the whole picture.

As the song “Meadows” evolves from psychedelic out of tune guitar sounds into a solid groove, the steady introduction of synth bass sounds together with the cool and funky sporadic guitar riffs will pull you in and without even realising you will be grooving along and dancing to this cool dance groove. What is most fascinating about it though is the way all the sounds come together. Every note has its place and with a certain simplicity in arrangement the music comes to life effortlessly. Overall “Meadows” is just one of those songs which express a sound that goes beyond stylistic pigeonholes and categories. It is music that is crafted with a good sense of balance and a groove that will make you move.
