And here we go again with our now usual series of flashes that give us hope, boost our mood, are a great excuse to have a break all whilst we are supporting artists that are offering their creativity to the world.
PAPER BRIDGE – FEATHER/FEATHER
With its debut album Paper Bridge, released at the end of March, the duo FEATHER/FEATHER is building a bridge between the earth and the sky. The duo as an indie-pop getting very fairylike, spiritually high sometimes (Requiem, Basilica), that are filling the space between high and low. The piano is soft, voices like a whisper and everything is subtle, dainty, fragile too. The journey proposed through Odyssey is worth the interludes they propose (Leaves, He Was an Old Man Who Fished Alone). We don’t need more to really enjoy the work of the two cousins who, we hope, have a lot to tell us still.
O – LAAKE
O is for Orchestraa. With two A s, like in LAAKE. LAAKE who’s new album released a couple of weeks ago is an epic collection of music that could become a wonderful soundtrack, either in the cinema or the video game industries. We visualize a thousand possibilities that RUN, PANIC or 1989 create. We see dystopian and utopian futures, a winning nature, the end of mankind or the two of them working together, in harmony. There’s in LAAKE’s electro, something natural, organic, living and that’s why we love this album so much.
AMPUTATE CORPORATE ART – THE K.
Just so we can have an escape valve, a moment of pure catharsis (which comes really handy during these weird times), we got out (not really – on the internet) and discovered The K. and their new album, released earlier this month, Amputate Corporate Art. Obviously, it’s the sound of crying guitars on The Future Is Bright and the screams of Petty Profit that we’re enjoying the most, along with punks tunes The Rougher Aspects of Love and Shit Day. It’s bright, energetic and welcome when we need to scream too. To be enjoyed at least once this week.
