Quick pitch: Atmospheric music for space travel from Finland’s TSÄGÄ, using samplers, synths, trumpet, vocals and guitar. Ready for this cosmic journey?
Quick pitch: New York based native EDGEY, is back with another glitch-y, idm odyssey, playing with discordance and melody.
(experimental electronic, witch house)
Quick pitch: A dark gem about Stained Cloths. Stained Cloths can be a reference towards many unwanted things within our lives. A wild combination of witch house, experimental electronic and dark wave by Avition
(art rock, psych folk, singer-songwriter)
Quick pitch: Welcome to the unique, artistic universe of Evan Mix… A singer-songwriter, who creates utterly rewarding ‘outer folk’ for the patient ones!
(cinematic, neoclassical, ethereal)

(drone, experimental, noise)
Quick pitch: A 9-minute, experimental, drone, noise opus, created during isolation time, based on Perttu Leinonen’s meditation on sound. No easy way out!
(avant pop, indie psych)
Quick pitch: An innovative, atmospheric blend of electronica, psych and avant-pop by Birmingham based composer/performer Rosie Tee, in the vein of great Björk
(new wave, alternative rock)
Quick pitch: A ‘therapeutic’ alternative rock/new wave blend by Skarlit for all the aching souls!
(spoken word, art rock, rap, indie folk)
Quick pitch: A culmination of art rap meeting alternative rock which combines an avant-garde instrumental with folk violins, post rock guitars and spoken word poetry from each vocalist before exploding into the thunderous drum crescendo on the final verse. Unlike anything we have listened so far this year! Powerful and utterly unique!
(feat. Omega Sapien)
(experimental electronic, rap)
Quick pitch: A sharp, aggressive synthesizer and a destructive, dividing rhythm, which sees Omega Sapien’s raw rap unfold around dark beats and harmonising with rough sounds.
