Pearla's New Single, "Daydream" and Upcoming EP Release

Daydream is an appropriate title for Brooklyn-based Pearla's first single from her upcoming debut LP Quilting & OtherActivities. Behind the band moniker, singer/songwriter Nicole Rodriguez reveals her most intimate thoughts through beautifully arranged emotional lullabies laden with metaphors and lush melodies. Recurring themes include love, evocative personal memories, the search for ways to escape darkness, whose emotional power gets boosted by her enchanting voice and a sparse but vivid production. Combining elements of folk, pop and psychedelia with a playful yet sober approach to songwriting, "Daydream" carries a wistful sort of confidence and a poetic power that's rare to find. 

In other Pearla-related news, the artist will be headlining Rough Trade on August 28th, celebrating the debut album release on Egghunt Records (Lucy Dacus, Camp Howard, Gold Connections). To hear the full EP, you'll have to wait until the September 6th release. - Susan Moon

Gabrielle Marlena drops video for "Older Than Me" + plays Rockwood on 07.27

New York-based musician Gabrielle Marlena's new single and video for "Older Than Me" discusses the problems she had with dating an older man. The source of her frustration is peeled away in the music video's imager, featuring a wedding dress, cake, and of course, an older man (in a wheelchair, played by Marlena's sister). The track's languid rhythm, rolling drums, and Marlena's tender delivery give the song th aura of a confession from a friend, including self-deprecating moments detectable in both the lyrics and the video. The title stands out as the pinnacle of an outburst outlined through the song's crescendo, a realization that each aging year brings an opportunity to take control of one's life. It plays to the artist's benefit to admit her faults in the relationship, naming the specifics about exactly what makes her feel the way she does. - Susan Moon





New Music Video: "Weathersby" - Strange Parts

Attia Taylor & Corey Duncan, a.k.a. Strange Parts, have shared a new video for “Weathersby”. The track is featured on the duo's 2018 album, Oh God, What A Beautiful Time I Spent In The Wild, which was recently reissued via This & That Tapes. Shot in black & white with bright bursts of pinkish-purple fireworks, the video ties into the summer season. The pair naturally sway to the hypnotic groove. There’s a fantasy-inspiring, daydreaming aesthetic at play.
