Screens 4 Eyes - Behind These Doors EP

Screens 4 Eyes are an electro indie rock / dream pop music project from Tel Aviv. Their first EP Ask Me Not was released in August 2015 and a few days ago the group released their second EP Behind These Doors. The lyrics describe a yearning for intimacy and being drifted to the world of dreams and the subconscious, which offer an adventurous and intriguing alternative to the banality of everyday life. 
The EP is available to stream and download on Bandcamp and below you can listen to the gorgeous and new favourite already 'Channel To Id'!

Sky Between Leaves - Klein Blues

They come from Brazil but they are currently based in London and they make post punk/krautrock music with shoegazey influences. They got their name from Jarvis Cocker's anecdote about wearing glasses for the first time and realizing that the holes in the trees were the sky. Tito Cordeiro (guitar/vocals), Brenno Balbino (bass/ synthesizers), Juliana Favero (drums/ percussion) are Sky Between Leaves, a band that released their debut EP Klein Blues in early October. The title track is one of a "perfect blue", evoking feelings of intensity while being unrestrained and infinitely free and hopeful. Below you can watch the video for 'Klein Blues', an homage to Yves Klein (the inventor of the particular colour), and immerse yourselves in boundless skies.
