Van Go Lion are amazing. Period. They make high quality pop that evokes memories of 90s Eurodance and 80s movies..in fact,The Ache sounds like it could’ve been the theme song to (insert 80s movie here). We’ve had in on repeat for hours at a time throughout the year..Lead singer Amy has a gorgeous low voice and the production is top notch without being overproduced. Van Go Lion are one of my bands to watch for in 2011..They’re currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their debut..I’ve had the privilege of hearing a few of the tracks and they are fun, full of hot beats and will have you dancing around your bedroom for hours singing along.
Pretty much obsessed with this cute little pop song from Sky Ferreira..she’s very interesting and unique looking and I think her voice is very reminiscent of Suzanne Vega’s..Anyway, this little ditty is def on my list of songs of the year..Check out Sky’s video for her Bloodshy & Avant produced single, One.
Such a gorgeous song & video from a brand new UK band named Echoes..I love ballads like this and I’m pretty sure many of you will as well..Listening to this song makes me want to look out the window and daydream for hours…The list of Echoes’ influences are endless and sandwiched somewhere between the late 80s and early 90s..Fans of UK bands that make epic, thoughtful, and dreamy music will be all over it..They remind me a bit of Crowded House and even a bit of HURTS..Easily one of the best songs of the year..They have an album in the works but to download the song for free, go to one of my favourite music websites, Electronic Rumours..http://electronicrumors.com/2010/11/24/new-track from-echoes/
