💽 » Ghostly Kisses - Heaven, Wait
pop, dream-pop, ambient • 10 songs • 36 minutes
Heaven, Wait is the debut album from Quebec-based singer-songwriter Margaux Sauvé, known by her stage name Ghostly Kisses. After releasing quite a few singles and EPs over the last several years, she finally presented us with a full-length experience, even though the whole album doesn’t last much longer than half an hour. For fans of dream pop and ambient music, this may be your next go-to. A perfect record to slow down and relax after a busy day.
🎶 » Bruna Mendez - Temporal
It’s been over a year since I recommended Bruna Mendez on my special issue featuring 10 incredible contemporary Brazilian singers, and now she’s back with a beautiful new single called Temporal, accompanied by a video for the great project A Colors Show. Love how the minimal aesthetic of the video fits perfectly with her music. I hope there’s a new album coming sometime soon!
🎶 » Harry Styles - As It Was
After diving deep into the 70s in his previous (and great) album Fine Line (2019), Harry Styles is back with a new single called As It Was, this time heavily influenced by the 80s. The track became an instant hit and will be part of his upcoming album Harry’s House, out on May 20.
