Filip’s Quick Single Picks: Couch Prints, Moodlighting, the Awkward Sleep, S.C.A.B., Sun Town Cult, The After Hours, Brady Only, Blue Sirens

Couch Prints – Alive

“Couch Prints is Jayanna Roberts, Brandon Tong, and Jacob Truax – a dance and synth-pop trio originating in various apartments across the world and finally finding a home in New York.” Sharing another single from this New York band and it is as lovely as the previous one. Really getting captivated by the vocal parts, such strong voice. You can find more music on Bandcamp.

Moodlighting – Alright

shoegaze/power pop from denver, co. 2 couples + a dude, and we love to just hang out

I like this song for the atmosphere it creates, gentle, yet catchy vibes. Mixture of shoegaze and indie rock and a really interesting sound. A really nice addition to our Spotify playlist. You can find more music on Bandcamp.

the Awkward Sleep – Avalanche

Another artist I am sharing on my blog with just one single out. “Multi-instrumentalist Tyler plays all the instruments on this album, with production/mixing/lyrics/vocals done by Ru.” Gentle melody creating dreamy atmosphere. It feels likes sailing a boat. You can follow the artist on Spotify.

S.C.A.B. – Tuesday

“Tuesday” is a song about disillusionment with trying to form meaningful connections, and searching aimlessly for something worthwhile. There’s a scene from Seinfeld where Newman says “Tuesday has no feel. Monday has a feel, Friday has a feel…” and that type of unspecific, hard to pinpoint vibe is what I wanted to express with the lyrics… you’re trying to get through the week, find any ounce of happiness to cling on to (sitting in the sun, feeling it burning your skin), looking for something but not finding it.”

Another song I am sharing because of the guitars. I know, I know… You can find more music on Bandcamp.

Sun Town Cult – Suzanne No. 3

What a catchy melody and yet so simple. Not many instruments, not overwhelming. Just great lo-fi (bedroom) rock. Sometimes you need in your life songs like this to make your hard days easier. I hope you feel better after hearing this… You can find more music on Spotify.

The After Hours – Heaven Knows

“Summer’s almost at it’s end and with that comes new beginnings. Whether you are cruising in your car or getting back to class, “Heaven Knows” is the sound track to that new slate.” A little bit of glimpse of summer, surf vibes. I am glad summer is over, but I will never have enough of summer music. You can find more music on Bandcamp.

Brady Only – State Fair Shakespeare

Another relatively fresh artist with just two singles out. I like how this sound old and yet fresh. Also the guitar (yes the guitar) bits are pretty cool and I like the chorus a lot. I can relisten it over and over and get into it more and more. Do you feel the same?…. You can find more music on Spotify.

Blue Sirens – Bloom

I have shared single from Blue Sirens before and here is most recent one. Chill electronic music for everyday listening. “With summer coming to an end I wanted to write a song that captured one of my favorite rainy summer days. My favorite day was spent working on music, reading comics, and watching HBO Max. I captured these memories through the rain sample, unique drum instruments, and melody. We are in the last days of summer and this song reminds me to capture as much of it as I can. All the flowers have bloomed and soon they’ll be gone in fall.” You can find more music on Bandcamp.
