    Sitting Pretty by Iconique


    Synth serious

    Initially seeming serious enough to be the sons of eighties synth pop, “Sitting Pretty” makes the most of Iconique’s retro influences whilst actually being a considerably smarter song than you might reasonably expect of these melancholic servants of the sequencer.

    Another Day by Merrily James


    Intense

    You could say that “Another Day” is just another example of the midrange modern pop song but the truth is that Merrily James has added enough emotional intensity to remind you that still waters run deep.

    Meet Me At The River by Reptile House


    Upbeat

    Surprisingly, this quirky and playful song comes from a Glasgow trio called Reptile House. In lyrical terms, “Meet Me At The River” echoes the established sentiments of country music yet is presented in a way that takes you all the way back to the sunshine days of folk rock.

    International Waters by Zozo


    Guitar pop

    “International Waters” is an example of the kind of edgy guitar pop that seems prevalent in the big city these days with Zozo adding enough in the way of theatrical touches to make the song stand out in a manic, all the way back to the eighties, kind of way.

    Gaps in the Border Fence by Esper Scout


    Big rock

    Plaintive yet pleasing lo-fi rock from Esper Scout with “Gaps in the Border Fence” stepping steadily up the scale as the song progresses thus providing the kind of big finish that such a song should have. Big guitars, big future.

    Real by Grace Joyner


    Uptown

    “Real” is the kind of intelligent song of the heart that you would expect of someone like Grace Joyner. City girls might often write this kind of coffee shop song but few do it as well and that’s a fact.

    Polished by Prince Innocence


    Shadows

    A Canadian synth pop duo, Prince Innocence play the game of numbers with their downbeat and wistful song “Polished”. Repression, oppression, depression – it’s all squeezed into those sequenced beats.

    Baboo by Pixx


    Classy

    Pixx adds passion to the cold electronic world where her musical demons reside with “Baboo” having more than enough poetry and pop sensibility to make the song uplifting. Over too soon, as they say.
