The Mid-Week Pickup for June 29, 2022

“Nuage” by Rosehip

“‘Nuage’ is the heavenly chill-trap opening track from Rosehip’s debut album ‘Origins’. The soft piano introduction leads into the expansive ethereal drop, like falling asleep and emerging into a lush dreamlike landscape. The muffled vocal samples, a theme throughout the album, create a sense of excitement and wonderment, painting a picture in the mind. Nuage provides a captivating start to the epic otherworldly adventure that is ‘Origins’.” — Rosehip

“Nancy” by Cairo Moon

Emerging from lockdown, Cairo Moon, a band from London, have been described as, “A stormy tribe of vintage spirits, melting a 60’s soul and ethereal rock potion.”Cairo Moon rose from the ashes of Rocksteady Punk band The Vex, who began writing with Frankie, a regular face and rising solo artist on the live London Circuit. Joining forces with other established artists including a drummer who performed and starred in Danny Boyle’s recent film ‘Yesterday’. Their songs were arranged and recorded over the recent worldwide lockdown.

“Cringe” by Estella Dawn

” Heartfelt yet scathing “Cringe” melds tropical flavors and clean pop vocals with smooth soul and unforgettable rhythms. Estella makes light work of fresh melodies while delivering a complete structure of shifting energy and presence. Featuring relatable songwriting presented in a new way, she touches on toxicity in dating with lashings of confidence and a transmissible aura of self-empowerment.” — Estella Dawn

“Breakdown” by The Bergamot

““Breakdown” is a sonic escape exploring the existential doom we are being barraged with on a daily basis. It is vital to remember that we inhabit this world for only a century at best when the stars have existed for millions of years. Over that span of time, the world has been plunged into darkness before. This is not the first generation to be inconvenienced by change and instability. We must seek inspiration and hope from the stars. ” — The Bergamot

“The Real Thing” by Redray Frazier

“Cinema (feat. Tsubasa Matsui)” by Kokeshi

“Happy/excited/impressed/loving after watching a movie… The perfect song for you! A song is sung by a movie otaku about his love of movies. It’s in Japanese lol. But you can tell that even from the sound. If you are the type of person who watches movies until the end roll, listen to it!” — Kokeshi

“California Honey” by Joe Friend Band

“”California Honey” is the 10th track from our forthcoming album ‘Seven|Seven’ from Joe Friend Band, Independent Alternative Psychedelic Rock. Check out the lyrics vid.” — Joe Friend Band

“If I Fall” by Tara MacLean

“I love this part of the song because in re-recording it, I realized how prophetic this song has been for me, in my search for stillness, in my dreams coming true,” says Tara MacLean. “Now I look at my life and career and see how I have achieved so much of what I set out to do, and this song was a vehicle that brought me there.”


“Melancholic, dreamy, enigmatic, and hauntingly beautiful, Montreal’s APACALDA (also known as Cassandra Angheluta) is creating her own immersive world with a refreshed approach to indie, electronic pop which meets dream wave sounds. Her new single, “SSR,” is a nostalgic and acoustic-inflected pop song which uses playfulness to communicate sadness at its core. Cassandra wrote this song due to finding herself in an intimate relationship devoid of any profundity, which she was misled into.” — APACALDA

“Homeward Bound” by Xavier Collins

“The title is inspired by my favourite film as a kid, but the meaning of the song is exploring the idea of the end of a relationship. It fluctuates between wanting to walk away and wanting to start again – the song reflects the gyrations of mental states you go through when ending something with someone you love.” — Xavier Collins
