Another Juggle - Dance Sunshine, Dance

Another Juggle is a four-piece band from Copenhagen, Denmark that posted a song on Soundcloud (Dear Laika) in late 2013 and had been 'quiet' ever since. Until recently. Nikolaj, Emil, Anders and Thomas have just dropped 'Dance Sunshine, Dance', a track off their forthcoming debut album. Combining charming, lyrical synth and guitar lines and beautiful vocals with a gleaming 80's sound, they wish to transform the Nordic melancholy into a delicate, silvery and catchy melody. They also unveiled an atmospheric video directed by Peter Scherrebeck Hansen and filmed in the ancient Rudolph Berghs Hospital in Copenhagen. Watch the director's vision of the stories hiding behind the hospital's walls and enjoy the band's excellent dreamy, pop track below.

There Is Thunder In Our Hearts - Friction

So, here's a cute story made in Stockholm, Sweden: Martin and Lovisa got an apartment together, but it was so small that no matter what they wanted to do they always had to stumble on each other. One day Martin got hold of some Korg Monotrons, a Microkorg and a wonderful Yamaha SK-10 and so they started playing music and creating some noise. And that's how There Is Thunder In Our Hearts were born. Since neither of them was really comfortable singing in front of anyone else, they just recorded some stuff that they pretty much never finished. But then they figured it would be nice to see what it would sound like. They tried some late night singing, but they hated it. So they asked some friends for help. And they got it. First and foremost was Johannes Göthager of the fabulous Darkly, who sings on the 'Friction' EP. Then came Veronica of We.the Pigs and Rådjuret, Johan of Örnsberg and they also made a collaboration song with Magnus of Supertuff and Little Big Adventure. Last summer they released a split cassette with Supertuff, 'The Paris Working​/​Pan​-​ic', on SIppinkollektivet and they did a release show featuring Veronica and Charley (also member of We.the Pigs, Nyom Recordings and The Mare) on vocals. 
On April 25th they released  'Friction', available on super limited edition cassette, which includes two dream pop gems featuring Johannes' always ethereal vocals: with 'All I Touch' your mind will start floating away and 'Friction''s more upbeat tunes will get you even higher towards clear blue skies. Have a listen below.

Loners - Happy People

If you ever want to get away from the world around you and get lost in your thoughts, you should listen to 'Happy People'; it's the debut album by Manchester based young musician Loners. His dreamy, easy listening music is instrumental, which means that he lets the listeners themselves invent the words and imagine the landscapes that his music transports them to. Happy or sad, colourful or gloomy, the emotions are yours to feel...
