German songwriter Simon Graupner aka Shelter Boy makes that sort of sound that perfectly fits to the current spring season. The first singles of his alter ego deliver sun-drenched slacker sounds that channel the smooth spirit of Mac DeMarco and Real Estate. Warm sounds and decliate hooks we surely can’t get enoughf of and you’ll probably fall in love with Shelter Boy quite easily.
There’s something quite fascinating about the sound of Greentea Peng, maybe because it’s so hard to categorize it. Born in Bermondsey South East London the psychedelic soul songstress delivers an exciting mixture of hypontic vibes and genres that isn’t afraid to embrace a certain contradiction. She’s both – dark and light, half soul-searcher and half wise-cracking and her music feels like a truly adventurous trip you are all invited to join.
Despite being only 20-years young there’s something quite mature and old-fashioned in the voice of British songwriter Taylor Skye. Well, and it also feels a bit odd, giving his voice a really note. The twisted modern pop of his debut EP Kode Fine & Sons also helps this voice to find a fitting setting. So, whether you’d like to his music as contemporary lo-fi/ glitch soul or something entirely different you can’t ignore a certian feeling of freshness and excitement in this sound, right?
