Complete with suits, ties, and red carpets, the video is a luxurious visual experience. Formal, yet casual, the band creates a fun scene, performing in smart outfits at an unusual venue. It is as if the band slipped away from a stuffy award ceremony to do what they love best: make good music. On top of the world, literally, The Burma performs their single, which tells of climbing out from the bottom.
Looking back at one’s mistakes, it is easy to see where things went wrong. But moving forward is far more challenging. One must enter the unknown, often while stumbling and falling. This is a central human experience, which The Burma encapsulates in ‘Sleepers’. The video drives home the message that no matter your position, whether you are on the second or fourth floor, you can find your way up.
Indie-dance duo Phantoms share new single‘Letting Me Go’from forthcoming album “This Can’t Be Everything”. Speaking of the new single, Phantoms say: “Letting Me Go” is the first song on our album coming in August. It was another one we wrote pretty early on in the album process and tried to incorporate a lot of the sounds we felt characterized the record. It’s still dance driven with synthesizers and punchy drums, but we also wanted it to feel euphoric and melancholy, like you could float away while listening to it.
Phantoms have come into their own and taken a new approach to their music following monumental personal and professional life changes and through those experiences have created some of their most dynamic and transcendent music to date. The two were officially signed to Foreign Family Collective earlier this year, (founded by electronic giant ODESZA in 2015) and since have had the freedom to explore new and exciting creative avenues with their music.
With previous support from NPR, Billboard, Stereogum, Earmilk + more and over 125 million streams across platforms, the duo has solidified themselves as one of the most promising acts entering 2022, with lots more on the horizon. Their recent string of singles including, ‘Lay It All on Me’ featuring UK based singer-songwriter JemCooke and ‘Firepit’ with electronic producer/composer, BigWild, have received incredible support from playlisting across the globe as well as continued radio support worldwide including heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM, SiriusXM (Diplo’s Revolution & BPM) + KCRW, triple j and more.
We are pleased to share the shoegaze track ‘June’ from indie band The Day via Sinnbus today. ‘June’ talks about friendship and how people drift apart when time and space get in the way of a good thing sometimes. Hazy and dreamy vocals cascade this track along with spaced out guitar notes. Definitely a song that perfectly sums up the heartache of losing a friend, The Day are a delight for indie listeners who want to listen to alternative lyrics that touch on other areas of life.
The band share: “June’ is a real coming-of-age song. The song is about a deep friendship that somehow got lost on the way to adulthood. The lyrics tell of the carelessness of teenagers, of the unclear boundaries between friendship and love, of living in the moment. At the same time, fears and worries emerge, about one’s own future, about the world itself. The older you get, the more space they take up and push friendship more and more into the background until it finally fades away completely.”
Fusing pop, country, soul and blues, Slovakian indie band Dennyiah have returned with another stunning release. ‘Sense Of Rain’ traverses EDM territory, further proving Dennyiah’s versatility as artists.
Dennyiah is vocalist Denny and guitarist Lubos. Their album is expected in 2022, and the duo is well on their way to reaching international audiences.
The stunning video for ‘Sense Of Rain’ features Massay dancer Fernando Anuang’a, who adds a visceral visual aesthetic to the track. The track showcases Denny’s vocals, which sit beautifully atop the alluring melody.
Dennyiah shares, “It’s about the elusive sensation of an invincible life force coming from within. Losing the ego and idealised and pre-constructed idea of self. That’s when nothing around changes. The only thing that changes is your perception and the fact that it doesn’t have the power to go under your skin anymore because it’s always been disconnected from the true within. Bad things good things – it’s all the same – what matters is how much you let it drag you down. This song speaks about the short moment of enlightenment, about the deep connection to everything without the heaviness of reaction.”
Adding to how the track was created, Dennyiah share, “It was created years ago with two of our former bandmates. Matej Marga ( drummer) and Miroslav Kažimír ( synth/piano). Miro created the base synth layers and Matej added drums. After that we jammed the idea in our rehearsal room all together with Lubo ( guitarist) and I came up with the melody that was actually stuck in my head for a while – the part where I sing sense of the rain. Lyrics were written long before coz’ I was going through a lot of changes in my life and was looking for a spiritual awakening which eventually happened, at least for a short while. The song came absolutely naturally and we may all agree that it’s a testimony to a better life within ourselves.”
