Three Indie Tracks for Your Spring Playlist

Arkells are back with a new single titled “Reckoning” — the first taste of a forthcoming companion album to 2021’s Blink Once

“The song is about privileged people who bury their heads in the sand. It’s also about the admiration for those who lead by example, and want justice for people beyond their own kin. We wanted the song to be big and cinematic — something that felt like walking through the streets at night time.” –Vocalist, Max Kerman

Decidedly an eat-the-rich anthem, Arkells is back— melding their signature triumphant, horn-heavy clap-alongs with grandiose strings. What more could you ask for as your soundtrack to Spring?

The latest work of artist, poet and performer Alabaster dePlume is called “Mrs. Calamari” and is available now. 

Mrs. Calamari is a woozy and wonderful meandering jazz tune with a vintage feel. Think midsummer, a garden full of dozy bees getting drunk on nectar. Precisely, why this song screams Spring playlist qualifier. 

The song is part of an album to be released called Gold produced by Lost Map Records partnered with Chicago label International Anthem and the Total Refreshment Center in London.

Uma Bloo is a perfect combo of earthly sounds with a cosmic scope. A sonic and parabolic theater emitted in all directions. 

With ghostly, echoing vocals and shimmery, distorted guitar parts Uma Bloo offers a dreamy Spring tune for your favorite indie tunes of 2022. 

“Strange Actress” is the first single from the Strange Actress EP.  For fans of Sufjan Stevens, Wild Nothing and Soccer Mommy.
