Peter Mol – “Blur”

Canadian singer/songwriter Peter Mol caught our attention with the ultra-chill indie electro of “Blur.” Mol’s distinct baritone vocals deliver melancholy lyrics over muffled drums and droning keyboards. It’s sultry, smooth, soothing, and sad all at once – we especially like when it opens up around 2:50. Check it out via the widget below and give…

DEYO – “Digital”

We’re digging this kitschy video from indie electro solo act DEYO. “Digital” has everything you’d look for in a fun-loving, campy vid – impassioned dancing, children’s rides, floppy disks, and an overall 80s vibe. Beyond that, “Digital” is a catchy indie pop jam full of sexy lyrics and nu-disco-tinged guitars and basses. Watch the video…

ARCHE – “My Only”

Arche is a French pop act whose “My Only” caught our eye. The video is full of kitschy, 90s-esque windbreaker vibes (despite what otherwise seems to be a youthful group of musicians). Beyond their music video’s impeccable aesthetic, “My Only” is a super cool pop track – full of far-off vocals and wild synthscapes you’ll…

Plastic Picnic – “September Second”

“September Second” is an interesting song – dancy like an 80s pop song but delicate and morose a la reverb-drenched indie rock. Either way – we’re digging the sounds coming out of Brooklyn’s Plastic Picnic. By pairing vintage synth twinkles and jangly guitars with a warm and fuzzy mix, we think PP has created something…

The Young Punx – “So Real”

“So Real” is so, so good. On “So Real,” The Young Punx have crafted a bumping house tune with sincere, retro flair. Live strings and real grand piano truly bring this one to life, not to mention the soulful vocals from Sharlene Hector. This one could be already be a standard if it was a 70s disco smash,…
