No Wyld – Odyssey

If you’re looking for something that exudes strength, power, confidence, drama – this is it. Formerly known as “The Wyld”, No Wyld fuse hip hop, rock, orchestral indie from Auckland, New Zealand. There’s no mistaking the thinking behind the title for… Continue Reading →

Chaos Chaos – Winner

  Sisters from Seattle, Asya and Chloe Saavedra a.k.a Chaos Chaos featured on the On Repeat playlist in August last year, when I first came across their synth-tinged, dreamy electro-pop on their SoundCloud page in this track from their self-released EP,… Continue Reading →
