Undiscovered Gems – Francisco Martin, Arswain, Bekah Bossard, SOMOH

Francisco Martin is catchy with their recent single Passenger Princess.  Mainstream appeal with indie swagger, it’s slightly edgy and arranged smart.  It bridges the chill pop appeal of Dayglow with the modern pop appeal of Charlie Puth.  The artists vibe is well presented in the gorgeous companion video.  

The multi format video features impressive animation mixed into live shots.  A rare colorful delight, Passenger Princess brings a bright vibrant palette to challenge the dark dreary melancholy of our day.

We dig the experimental design of Bust, the new release from multi format artist Arswain.  The song itself is full of an eclectic array of electro and even industrial influence.  It’s the dreamy abstract chorus that brings infectious contrast.  Overall it presents as if Bjork and James Blake had a love child. 

The video (shown above) enhances the intuitive appeal.  The artist emphasizes that with nature there’s more than meets the eye.  The interpretative choreography enhances the sentiment, as the performer loses herself to the musics immersive design.  

Bust is currently featured on our Best New Indie Playlist.

These four walls are gonna eat me alive…”  Bekah Bossard pours a lot of herself into the performance of Four Walls, her new breakout single.  The shimmering dreamy guitar first design bridges the aura of 80s alternative and modern indie pop.  It presents like a Phoebe Bridgers raised on a diet of The Smiths, The Cure, and REM. 

Bossard has her own rare sultry emotive delivery like a female Morrissey.  It’s full of drama and theatrical melancholy, bearing an attraction and elegance known to bring lovers to their knees.  Just the second release from this exciting project, Bekah Bossard is an artist to watch.

A lush melancholy vocal delivery introduces A Plan To Get Home, the new single from SOMOH.  The artist immediately gets under your skin, patiently scaling your vulnerability with emotional affect.  She presents like a slow core Billie Eilish as she walks you into the songs epic end section.  The build up reveals a rock and roll fever strong enough to conjure a new level of emotion and passion from the otherwise reserved performance. 

SOMOH shows the passion buried beneath the sad girl appeal, it’s worth the wait, and only adds to her elusive vibe.  We simply want more of it.  That last section connects with the indie rock appeal of Wolf Alice or Julien Baker.
