Recently and quite generously Melbourne’s Anna Cordell has shared two new singles from her forthcoming LP: the spectral, sonorous and chiming “Nobody Knows Us” and “You”, darkly sylvan and poetic. Both are available from her Bandcamp page right now and taken from Nobody Knows Us, the album she releases on February 14th. She also runs Anna Cordell Clothing, which ships worldwide.
Spectral yet focused, “It’s Not That Cold Anymore” is a confession bathed in ivory moonlight and the affecting brand-new single from East London’s Yvonne McDonnell. Inspired by the ineffable magic of black-and-white photography, it’s a private aria. You can stream the track right now on Apple Music and on her Soundcloud page.
Melbourne’s Charm of Finches have just and dramatically unveiled both their lyrical and Arcadian single “Lies” and its darkly-sumptuous new video, which was directed by Ivy Windred-Wornes. You can download the track now by visiting their Bandcamp page. This is taken from their next and second LP Your Company, and that’s out next Friday, November 29th.
Heartbreak abounds, but so too does triumph. It’s true that at times possibilities and clarity emerge from dead ends and despair. “My Stranger” and “Cigarette Smoke” are two poetic and powerful new tracks from Fargo, North Dakota-born, L.A.-based musician Hannah Westerholm and her Half Wolf project. You can find streaming and download links for these right here.
Bath Time is the title of the soon-to-be-released, concept-driven album from Dublin’s Maija Sofia, from which you can hear the buzzing, literate “The Wife Of Michael Cleary” above. The album is out on November 22nd courtesy of London’s Trapped Animal. You can order turquoise-vinyl, black-vinyl, CD, digital and bundled editions of it now from her Bandcamp page.
Darkly fanciful and organically textured, it explores sylvan mysteries with an intelligent mischief. “The Loch Ness Monster” is the pastoral, secretive and emerald-toned new single from West London’s Matilda Mann, and you can find streaming links for it here. This is the second track she’s shared from her debut EP If That Makes Sense, its release forthcoming.
