Birthh
Based in
Italy, Florence
Style

It’s not easy giving an honest review when you’re a band’s groupie. OK, I’m just joking – I’m not Birthh’s groupie, but do think that had I had a band as a teenager, I would’ve definitely wanted to sound like her. Her voice hits you like something that you jealously keep to yourself, like the first time I heard Cat Power acoustic or The xx. And Alice Bisi, her real name, made it all at just 19 years of age. She seems so lost in the dark and tortured, but her voice guides us over fields we wouldn’t otherwise dare cross. Her first record Born in the Woods echoes some really big artists and ...

Pale Honey
Based in
Sweden, Gothenburg
Style
Sometimes the best things in life need a while to grow before they flourish. This has been the case with Pale Honey, a Swedish indie rock duo consisting of guitarist-vocalist Tuva Lodmark and drummer Nelly Daltrey, who started playing together in elementary school. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2015 and caught the attention of several prominent music website, including Consequence of Sound, Stereogum, Clash, The Line of Best Fit and Ja Ja Ja. The album is strikingly beautiful in it’s simplistic vision. Recorded in producer Anders Lagerfors’ kitchen, the album teases the ear with its slow-yet-dynamic, sleepy-yet-sexy melodies. ...
The Entrepreneurs
Based in
Denmark, Copenhagen
Style
To play louder, faster and wilder. That was the mission of The Entrepreneurs when they first started playing together in 2014. One might say that they have succeeded so far! The Danish noise-rock trio call their music a noisy homage to the complicated existence of love. You think it sounds too mighty and exaggerated? Well, take a listen and you will see they’re only being honest. All of this is portrayed through songs played by singer/guitarist Mathias Bertelsen, bassist Anders Hvass and drummer Jonas Wetterslev. Nothing more is needed in The Entrepreneurs. Signed to the Danish independent label Like a Can of Beans, the Copenhagen-based ...
Širom
Based in
Slovenia, Čadrg, Divača, Beltinci
Style

"Širom" is an old word for "around" and "širom sveta" translates as "around the world". That is exactly what this Slovenian trio's music sounds like – like it has travelled, listened, climbed and swum, seeking out the sounds of the world. Their broad influence isn't random at all, as all three musicians have travelled through many bands and projects in the past decade, always exploring sounds in unconventional ways and always somehow connected to folk roots. ŠKM banda, Hexenbrutal, Najoua, Samo Gromofon and Horda grdih are just the most prominent of the acts that should be mentioned ...

Kid Flicks
Based in
Greece, Athens
Style

Nickos Dervisis, aka Kid Flicks, is a musical chameleon – a restless producer and songwriter who goes from sunshine pop to world music, from heavy samples to ethereal harmonies. He changes location almost as often as he changes styles, splitting his time between Athens and London, but that’s OK because the information-hungry, eerily-voiced sound collagist can produce his work on a laptop.

His debut album, Hearts of Gold, was released in 2011 through Inner Ear Records, a record which he crafted single-handedly: music, ...
