It’s time for some chill with Evening Space-tini!
That’s the last day of Summer. However, we luckily have this selection of incredible artists to cheer us up.
These indie rock and indie folk tunes are perfect for this time of the year. Autumn is starting, and everyone is back to work, anyway, this music still makes us dream, and also daydream.
Just imagining ourselves without responsibilities for a bit longer, all these songs definitely did a great job of not making us think about the hustle and bustle of being a Londoner. We are sure that will chill you up as well.
Let’s begin the happy hour.
FRAN LUSTY – “Flight Of Your Mind”
Our first artist from today is called Fran Lusty, and she’s a singer-songwriter from London, UK. She just released an incredibly catchy tune called “Flight Of your Mind”, an indie-folk you absolutely shouldn’t miss.
That’s her fourth single in 2022 and she definitely created a consistent sound during this here, accompanied by some conceptual artworks that make her music project even more consistent. This new single has a very solid sound foundation thanks to its chord progression and acoustic guitar sound.
The electric guitar gives that dreamy vibe adding some shoegaze-inspired sounds that give a lot of depth to the song. All of these are topped by Fran’s melancholic performance and melody. For the theme of this song, Fran was inspired by Virginia Woolf’s diaries and how she used to fly away from the real world into her mind.
The song reflects on the husband’s perspective of this peculiar situation, and the disconnection she might feel from the real world. We found ourselves a bit reflected in this story, we lack Virginia’s talent but we are definitely some avid daydreamers.
T.I.G.Y. – “Animal”
T.I.G.Y. is an oustanding duo based in Dorking, UK, with an indie pop catalogue of over 10 tracks and one EP, these guys bring to the public a unique style merging beautiful vocal melodies with minimal musical arrangements.
Their latest release “Animal” is a cover of the band Miike Snow, completely reworked and remastered to a whole new level, and we can say they absolutely nailed it.
The style of the cover has soft touch for the first part of the song, featuring a dreamy piano and some impressive brasses (apparently provided by the incredibly skilled Jamie Sefton), while having a more energic and brave character during the second part.
The combination of the instruments used give the tune an acoustic sound, blending perfectly with the angelic vocals and giving the listener the opportunity to focus on the paceful and gentle melodies the will slowly inebriate our mind.
This was definitely an incredible take from this duo, they also have some upcoming live events across the UK, make sure you check out their dates on Spotify!
POLYDRIVE – “Have To Make This Call”
This duo needs no introduction, after being with us in some previous articles, we are glad to have them here once again with their latest release “Have To Make This Call”.
What can we say, this tune literally captured our heart with its incredible nostalgic vibe and the refined sound design of electronic elements mixed to acoustic and electric guitars.
The song is a crescendo of emotions, built with an incredible dynamic full of stunning transients and powerful energy. This is definitely a strong characteristic of this band, able to add magic to whatever they play.
The song starts with a chilled verse, played by an acoustic guitar and the vocals. It slowly brings in other elements and fxs in a perfect manner, releasing most of its energy during the choruses and bringing your mind on a rollercoaster of feelings.
We can admit that we can’t get enough of it, that’s why we’re going to press play once again.
YONAH – “Bad Dreams”
Extremely excited to introduce this incredible talent based in New York, US, ready to unleash wonderful feelings with his sound: we want to give a warm welcome to YONAH.
Just 19 years old, this young lad is a singer/songwriter and producer that seems to know what he’s doing, with a total of 5 productions released this year.
His latest tune called “Bad Dreams” is an Indie Pop production with a sophisticated sound design, featuring mellow guitars and incredibly captivating vocals that give the tune a mysterious feeling and a sense of “I want to discover more of it”.
The song has a misty mood, and we loved it: it will literally let you dream during the listening, and as the title says, it was a very bad dream.. However, if bad dreams were all like this, then I think we’d like to have them all the time.
Curious about what this artist will come up next, links below to keep posted:
LAURA LANG – “Black Sedan”
Talking about young talents, we are thrilled to present LAURA LANG, a marvelous singer and songwriter from Tennessee, US.
Her angelic voice is incredibly remarkable, just 17 years old we wonder how she can be this good, lyrically and melodically speaking, Laura proves her skills with her latest release “Black Sedan”.
The song starts with an astonishing guitar arpeggio: it hooked us from the first moment with its beautiful melody, accompanied by a very characteristic bunch of effects, and followed by the soft vocal lines of Laura during the verse.
The tune features an amazing groove composed of rich and bold acoustic drums in a full indie rock style, releasing all of its energy in the second half of the song along with electric rock guitar power chords and powerful vocal melodies.
This artist is incredibly good at bringing nostalgic vibes and will definitely make you craving for more, we can assure you.
KAELEY JADE – “Beneath The Lies”
The next artist we present to you comes directly from Edmonton, Canada. She’s a singer-songwriter called Kaeley Jade and her last single is called “Beneath The Lies”. That’s an acoustic pop tune with an extremely catchy melody and arrangement, especially the main lead present in the chorus, it’s easy to get stuck in your mind.
That’s the fourth single out of her upcoming album Turpentine which will be out just in a couple of days, and we are very excited about this. Beneath the Lies bring to life the poppiest side of Kaeley Jade, but always deals with themes that are nothing but superficial.
After encountering one of her ex-partners, Kaeley faces some of the human most notorious constructions, the so-called human masks, the false identity that keeps some of us alive by not facing certain issues of their lives, pretending everything’s okay.
This song and its incredible catchiness reminded us of early works from Taylor Swift and Maggie Rogers, and we wish the best for Kaeley Jade’s upcoming album, make sure not to miss it out.
ZOE GUIGUENO – “Queen Of My Domain”
“Queen Of My Own Domain” is the latest single from Singer-Songwriter Zoe Guigneno, a cozy indie tune, perfect for the end of summer.
Zoe Guigneno, is currently based in Canada, Vancouver Island, but she used to live in New York for a long time and had a lot of music experiences playing the bass in different bands. Through her lyricism and songwriting is possible to capture her musical talent and ability to convey her emotions through melody.
The song’s arrangement plays a lot around the bassline, very groovy and present which makes it a peculiarity if compared to other indie rock/indie pop tunes. The organ and guitar licks add some dreamy layers to the production but always leave enough space for Zoe to express herself fully.
Through the lyrics we can see that Zoe explores her independence, now feeling more control over her life, expressed in an uplifting and very positive way. A simple, warm yet inspiring tune, you should absolutely add to your playlist.
LAURYN MARIE – “Happy Songs”
Directly from San Francisco, here we have Lauryn Marie with her new song Happy Songs. That’s the first tune she released in 2022, bringing some alt-pop vibes to the end of this summer, with a melancholic theme and a very catchy melody.
Lauryn was able to create a song that sounds very pop while still keeping her singer-songwriter style. The electric guitars here also add some vibes that reminded us of Olivia Rodigo and Avril Lavigne, which we really dig.
The main theme of this song turns around the feeling we might have after a relationship is finished. Everything changed, and also our respective things during the relationship had a different and deeper meaning.
Lauryn in this song is indeed reflecting on the role of all the songs she used to listen to, and they all sound different in the aftermath of her breakup. A situation that many of us can relate to, and that Lauryn was able to transpose into music in a flawless way.
HERALD K – “Wandering Aengus”
Here we have the final artist of today’s list. Last but not least we present you Herald K, a singer-songwriter from Vienna, Austria. Even though we didn’t plan for this to be the last review of the day, this song sounds like the perfect closure for today’s selection, thanks to his extremely chill vibes and hypnotic pedal steel guitar.
The tune we are going to close today is called Wandering Aengus and this is Herald K’s interpretation and transposition of William Butler Yeats’s poem.
This extremely calming tune is a hidden gem of modern folk. It is pure pleasure to dive into this song, especially at the end of a very busy day, and be caressed by the vocal melody, a soothing line that accompanies you into a dreamy state. The very well-curated sound design gives the right space to every instrument making the double bass, vocals and acoustic guitar shine. The perfect tune to end the day.
