Pantha du Prince - “Frau Im Mond, Sterne Laufen” (Singles Going Steady)

Pantha du Prince's latest single unsurprisingly features a wonderful late-night chillout vibe.


Will Butler (Arcade Fire) - “Take My Side” (Singles Going Steady)

Darlingside - “White Horses” (video) (premiere)

Darlingside's most striking feature is those pristine, crystalline harmonies that the four-member band spin like the finest of weavers.

Royal Jelly Jive brings elements from swing and prohibition era jazz into the modern age by blending those sounds with blues, rock and even hip-hop in the groovy bits.

Radiohead - “Daydreaming” (Singles Going Steady)

"Daydreaming" sounds exactly like what you would expect Radiohead to sound like in 2016.


Bonnie Bishop - “Mercy” (audio) (premiere)

Ruby Friedman is one hell of a frontwoman with a completely unique and transfixing voice laden with passion.


Oyinda - “Flatline” (Singles Going Steady)

Oyinda's "Flatline" is an agonized indie-R&B pulse-racer that drops a miniature apocalypse between two lovers' bodies.
