Song of the Day: Blurr – Ivytide

Montreal indie act IVYTIDE‘s single, ‘Blurr,’ encapsulates the feeling of losing touch, reflecting the distance between two people that comes from a disparity in perceptions, emotions, and perspectives.

The production on ‘Blurr’ embodies the feeling of distance, with elements of dreamy lo-fi R&B and washed out qualities, paired with lyrics describing the struggle of self-identification.

‘Blurr’ is the first single from their  EP, ‘Pardon Our Distance’. Check out the video below…

Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq – aka HUMANS – have recently dropped their brand new track, ‘Beggin’, an upbeat, danceable electro-pop track with a groove-driven bassline and catchy hooks.

Since their 2018 appearance on the blog with video for track, ‘Sip It’, the Canadian indie-electronic duo have been focusing on performance and production styles of both the past and present, and have consistently impressed audiophiles with their technical and compositional skills. Their latest LP ‘Going Late’, released late 2019, features Grammy-winning producer Carlos De La Garza on album track ‘Still About You’ as well as So Loki for vocals on the track ‘RUN’.

Song of the Day: Overtime – House Marked X

Australian hip-hop project HOUSE MARKED X has made their entry onto the blog with debut track, ‘Overtime.

The track introduces the act’s vision of hip-hop-Noir – a heavy driven trap sound -which is influenced by the current landscape of dark melodic hip-hop, akin to the likes of Travis Scott and Future. To add extra spice, House Marked X fused their heavy trap trademark with Electronic music and R&B.

“Nothing hurts more than introducing a girl to a place and you break up but she keeps going to that place so now you have to find a new place that’s basically what ‘Overtime’ is about.” – House Marked X

Currently based in Melbourne, House Marked X, looks to take advantage of the city’s already bustling hip-hop scene…so expect more music from this collective. Have a listen to their buzzing joint below…
