Chelsea Wolfe – Whispers In The Echo Chamber

Transcending musical boundaries with a strong appeal for modernity, Chelsea Wolfe unveils her mysterious new single, titled “Whispers In The Echo Chamber”. To be found in his next album, She Reaches Out To She Reaches Out To She, scheduled for February 9, 2024.

Popincourt – The Road To Recovery

Strongly inspired by 60s pop, the Parisian group Popincourt invites Susanne Shields on its latest single, the friendly and calm “The Road To Recovery”. The singer alternates between catchy vocal lines and well-felt flute notes. To be found in We Were Bound To Meet, which has just been released.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Theia / The Silver Cord / Set

As prolific as ever, King Lizard & The Lizard Wizard cultivate strangeness on their new tripych of tracks, containing “Theia”, “The Silver Cord” and “Set”. To be found in the album The Silver Cord, available since Friday, November 27.

Doro – Total Eclipse of the Heart

The German heavy metal singer softens the tone and the riffs for a beautiful cover of “Total Eclipse of the Heart”, a Bonnie Tyler standard. If her raspy timbre is wonderfully close to that of the Welsh singer, she nevertheless invites Rob Halford, singer of Judas Priest, for a stellar duet. To be found in his new album, Conqueress – Forever Strong and Proud.

Wild Nothing – Dial Tone

Discover Dial Tone, taken from Hold, Wild Nothing’s new album. The American indie rock group presents a retro-futuristic single, mixing vocoder and deliciously 80’s ambiance, in a title praising personal elevation.

Dirty Cloud – Ritalin

Before the release of their first EP on November 2, the Rouen trio Dirty Cloud released the single Ritalin, grungy as can be, with big riffs which correspond to the youthful destroy atmosphere, mixed with a disillusioned aspect. Sincere and raw, this track is sure to electrify your weekend.

Hoorsees – Ikea Boy

Before the release of Big, Hoorsees’ next album, scheduled for January 12, 2024, the Parisian dreampop group lets its Weezer influences speak in the magical “Ikea Boy”. A true invitation to soar towards a sweet and ethereal universe.
