Selkama - Mosquito Bite.

Mosquito Bite is the third single from Selkama’s upcoming debut album which will be out this spring.

About the song: Mosquito Bite is a break-up song written in retrospect. It’s about realizing that you’ve been denying your feelings for someone and then understanding it too late. It deals with how hard it can be to let go of strong memories that you’ve been romanticizing and rewriting way too much in your own head. Kim arranged the powerful strings that Jenny Lander later played so beautifully on violin and cello in the studio. It’s something special to hear your own songs with strings for the first time and for a little while we felt as close to a James Bond-soundtrack as we will ever come.

About the video: The video is animated and directed by our talented friend Michaela Rosengren who was given free reins to come up with whatever she wanted.

Michaela about the video: Selkama’s song is a telling depiction of a lost love that you can’t seem to forget. In the video I tried to illustrate the physical and psychological emotions that you drown in and are haunted by after a painful break-up.


The Danberrys - The Mountain.

Americana duo The Danberrys officially release their new single "The Mountain". For the single, Dorothy and Ben pulled inspiration from New Orleans’s traditional second-line rhythm and blues and features vocals from American songwriter Darrell Scott. Their lyrics reflect a message of destruction becoming a catalyst in creating new strength and wisdom.

"The Mountain" is the first single off The Danberrys' upcoming album Shine, out May 8th, 2020. Comprised of 12 new tracks, The Danberrys masterfully depart from their signature acoustic sound to capture elements of rock, blues, and folk. This new musical direction lets the pair venture into a darker atmosphere as well as allowing their self-written lyrics to stand tall. Shine will mark The Danberrys third full-length album.

In the meantime, The Danberrys are excited to finally release "The Mountain". The single will soon be proceeded by more incredible singles including the title track "Shine". Be sure to check out The Danberrys on social Media and check out "The Mountain", now available on all streaming platforms.


Pawn Painters - Under The Sun.

Indie band Pawn Painters from Bavaria / Germany release their first radio single "Under the Sun" via Junuh Music / Believe Digital.

The Pawn Painters combine vintage-oriented sounds with a modern, spherical sound spectrum for driving indie and alternative vibes. In some places the band is reminiscent of the young The Strokes, carried by the extraordinary voice of singer Simon Mennes

If the Pawn Painters were actually painting, their paintings would be rich in intense colors and patterns. Even if the four musicians from Bavaria are not painters, the description fits their style perfectly. The band bundles vintage-oriented sounds with a modern, spherical sound spectrum for indie and alternative beats.

The Pawn Painters were founded in 2016. Four musicians, plagued by the band landscape in the area and their own efforts. A cellar somewhere in the slums of Schrobenhausen's Westside is considered the creative breeding ground for these united souls. The first contests were won with the string jump in Pfaffenhofen and the Noiseattack in Ingolstadt. The result was the first release of their single "Talk Philosophy" and an appearance at the Taubertal Festival in Rothenburg, followed by appearances at the Noisehausen Festival at their hometown.


Detalji - Without You.

Helsinki based artist and producer Detalji shares explosive new single 'Without You’ via Deep Limit + announces UK dates.

Detalji is the solo project of Krista Myllyviita, a Helsinki based artist and producer. Today, Detalji shares romantic party anthem Without You. a musical expression of excitement and the relief you feel when you’re finally ready to surrender yourself to love. It’s about the joy of knowing that your loneliness is coming to an end.

In 2019 Detalji was shortlisted for Breakthrough Artist of the Year on Finnish national radio, as well as winning a Femma Award (Finnish "indie Grammy”) for Best Electronic Act, alongside playing her first shows outside of Finland including appearances at Iceland Airwaves and Eurosonic Noorderslag.

Myllyviita first started making left-field electronic pop from her bedroom after attending her first rave with her sister at the age of 18. Up until this point, Myllyviita fulfilled her musical desires singing and playing guitar in various bands, but she was always striving for something different. And so in 2016, after a few years of exploring and developing her sound, experimental electronic project Detalji was born.

Rising from the thriving Finnish pop scene, Detalji is an artist forging her own path with ambitious tracks written for international crowds. “I do everything alone, using tools on my computer, a few synthesizers, Ableton Live and a microphone,” she explains, a process which all takes place in her studio apartment in a gloomy part of Helsinki called Itä-Pasila. 2020 is already off to a flying start with Detalji being nominated for a prestigious EMMA award as well taking her enthralling live show on the road.

Tour Dates:
13/2 The Lexington, London UK
18/3 SXSW, Austin TX
25/3 Studio 9294, London UK w/Kedr Livanskiiy
4/4 Dream Soul Fair III (Kallio Church) FI.


Satin Nickel - Call It.

NYC-based folk-pop band, Satin Nickel, has released the new single, “Call It,” via a premiere on Pancakes and Whiskey, and announced the release of their first full-length album, Shadow of Doubt, on April 10, 2020.

The song was inspired by the personal experiences of band member Samantha Aneson (vocals, guitar, banjo). “A few years ago, I was in a toxic relationship with someone I was pretty addicted to. We had a lot of arguments, weeks we’d go without speaking, and not a lot of respect,” she explains. “I remember him, in the middle of arguments, saying that we ‘should just call it now before it gets worse.’ That saying really stuck with me. ‘Call it’ is a phrase I’d hear in reference to going home at the end of the night - something much less final. It was almost insulting, how easy that phrase made breaking up sound. When I was healing from the relationship, I went back over that phrase and ended up writing a hook based around it.”

Satin Nickel began as a collaboration between Aneson and fellow songwriter Morgan Hollingsworth (vocals, guitar, mandolin). Combining Hollingsworth’s aggressive approach to the Americana narrative with Aneson’s sentimental and introspective approach to folk music, they found their contrasting styles complemented each other, forming a powerful dichotomy, smooth as satin and hard as a nickel. In the winter of 2018, they met fellow theater artists Nikola Balac (drums) and Ariana Karp (cello) and released their debut self-titled EP. Adding bassist Andrew Shewaga to the group, Satin Nickel became a full-bodied quintet and recorded Shadow of Doubt.

Satin Nickel will be performing at NYC’s Bowery Electric on February 17, in celebration of the release of “Call It.” Shadow of Doubt is out everywhere on April 10, and tour dates will be announced soon.
