Hi everyone and happy Halloween! As October is one of the scariest times of the months, we want to give you as much company as possible. That being said, this month’s playlist includes three (!!) EPs and a lot of contemplative singles. We feel this is a marvellous soundtrack for one of those days we need the world to breath us in, so we hope you enjoy this unwind and relax set! (Oh, and as we felt we couldn’t pick only 10 best tunes of October, this month you get one extra artist to discover! Happy Halloweening).
Mansionair – Astronaut (Something About Your Love)
Mansionair released Astronaut (Something About Your Love) less than a week ago. This track features all the things we love about Mansionair. The smooth vocals, the subtle percussion, the crescendo of sonority. And then the element of surprise after one minute and some seconds into the song. A powerhouse of energy oozes from the chorus into our headphones. This is a very different approach to electronic music compared to what we’ve heard from them before. But a very nice surprise as well.
MOLLY – Glimpse
MOLLY are a duo from Innsbruck, Austria, with a type of sound we can’t quite describe. We can talk about bands like Sigur Rós but even that comparison wouldn’t be spot on. The best way to introduce them may very well be the song they just released. Glimpse is the first advance of a 3-track long EP (to be released this winter), and is a complex song which mysterious beginning is only the tip of an enchanting iceberg.
