O Mer's new EP "Refugee" blends synth-pop with soulful and eastern influences

On his new EP entitled Refugee, Brooklyn by way of Tel Aviv artist O Mer deconstructs genres in a way that allows him to bend electronica with both soulful and eastern influences. The EP features the breakout single “Now I’m Alive,” as well as tracks that have only previously been performed live, like “The Veil” (streaming below), a song that can most accurately be described as meditative. The EP channels themes of displacement and disorientation that arise from living in a foreign country.





Foxanne releases EP, plays Rose Gold tonight (04.13)

There is a delicate subtlety to Foxanne’s songwriting that sets the indie-folk trio’s music apart from peers. While the light guitar work and emphasis on vocal melodies comes from a folk tradition, the minimal and airy arrangements that simmer behind Chelsea Gohd’s voice fall more in line with acts like Daughter or Julien Baker. The band is preparing to release its debut studio EP halfling on April 13th and the leading singles pair gentle finger-picking with rolling floor toms that leave room for Gohd’s voice to shine in front. You can catch Foxanne live when the band plays Rose Gold the night of the release along with Andy Cook, who has his own EP out that day. – Cameron Carr





Jordan Chism delivers dreamy pop on "Horoscopes"

Looking for a song that combines the '50s crooner stylings heard at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance with light and airy synths? I thought so. Well, Nashville's Jordan Chism has delivered just that on her single "Horoscopes", written for an indie film titled The Boogeywoman, described as "a coming of age story about the horrors and wonders of becoming a woman." Well, there's nothing horrific about Chism's dreamy pop offering here, just sweet melodies and chill vibes. - Chris Thiessen

Colatura release track "Afraid"; play Rose Gold on 04.12

In the spring of 2017, Colatura vocalist/guitarist Digo Degorio convinced vocalist/guitarist Jennica Best to quit her job and start a band with him. With the help of drummer Rich DeGregorio, the band built up a following by playing shows around the city. Now they have a debut EP ready to release on April 13th. The EP, titled Spring Drew Blood, introduces the world to Colatura's eclectic style, which takes from '60s garage rock to '90s grunge and post-punk. Tracks on the album examine the concept of self-worth, made clear in song titles such as "Is Love Enough?" and "Afraid". You can stream the latter track below. Listen for Degorio's dreamy guitars which can turn crunchy on a dime, and for Best's opera-tinged vocals.

Colatura will perform at a release show for Spring Drew Blood at Rose Gold on April 12th; get the EP there before it goes live online the next day. - Will Sisskind

Welles kicks off summer tour at Mercury Lounge tonight (04.09)

New York's alt-folk powerhouse Welles has delivered again with his new single, "Seventeen." It's at once easy listening and a foreboding portrait of a young person's foray into intimacy. Welles paints a first-person picture of someone who's contemplating whether or not a hook-up will have deleterious effects on the other person's psyche, while also acknowledging the lust that seems to have overtaken the narrator. "It's cold in the water/I wonder if I should bother/When she gets old it'll haunt her/I'm here tonight and I want her/I'm here tonight and I got her." It's a balladic pop song at its core, with an eminently singable hook ("Seventeen/So unclean"), yet a darkness lines the song's edges. Welles kicks off a U.S. summer tour at Mercury Lounge on April 9th, with Wild Moon. Listen to "Seventeen" below! - Ethan Ames
