Every Wednesday on HighClouds, from now until death do us part, we publish the picky playlists of our Brussels’ friend and collaborator Deer Du Bois. He has been demonstrating a real talent in highlighting emerging and talented acts and imposes himself as a real talent-spotter. Every week, his playlist is a sharp and buzzing selection of new discoveries in indie and pop music. And lucky you: we are now your fresh and fun place to weekly seat and savor his delightful “indie.tronic.dream.pop.chill.wave” cocktail. So, do you mind a cup?
Greetings from Planet Song, where music is the new cult! This week we’ll make you discover your inner “Female Vampire” with the dark-tantric Norwegian Jenny Hval. Drained from your rhythm? Well, get your hips moving, then with the quivering “Golden Age” by our favorite bearded bard LANKS.
Looking for a new Messiah, well why don’t go for 2? Discover this week’s newcomers in the feisty Italian singer Giungla and her vengeful track “Wrong” or cool down with the gentle sparks in the piano-driven “Here I Go” from French singer GLABS.
Let the dessert trips of 40 days pass you by and go underground with the new wave punk of Delagoon on “Somehow” or “Underwater” with the heart-stirring Laura Jae. And just before the beginning of the end, our hottest track of the week comes from the sensuous Maala. Let his “Kind of Love” prepare you to get “In Bloom” with The XX-melancholy of Swedish dream pop act Wy. Can I get an Amen?
This week, Deer Du Bois and its playlist bring some new-wave, vampire punk and sleazy pop piano on the dancefloor!
