sweet female voices, meet softly pulsing beat

Vampire SmileKyla La Grange

Kyla La Grange is doing what I always wanted Lissie to do; produce more, edgier hooks. After being disappointed at how predictable and unexciting Lissie’s Catching a Tiger was, I scooped up this Kyla La Grange track.

AnymoreThe Submarines

Do not be fooled by the saccharine and midi-oboe (or whatever it’s supposed to be) at the beginning of this track. Like little starbursts of light, Blake Hazard’s voice frolics over the bridge and chorus, giving this instant-Grey’s Anatomy soundtrack something slightly more special. The kind of song that you should add to your gym partner’s pink iPod shuffle as an introduction to indie music.
