JUNIUS MEYVANT – COLOR DECAY
Genre: Indie Folk
Today I present Junius Meyvant, an artist hailing from Iceland's Westman Islands. Junius' journey began in the international music industry practicing a genre reminiscent of indie folk. Meyvant's first released single, "Color Decay’' portrays the sheer quality of the project, and inspires a mad impatience from us as listeners to hear the rest of his upcoming work. ‘Color Decay’ invokes ponderous moments of reflection swept up in big open spaces, the echoes of the mountains, the unbeaten cold, and the magic of the lost places; kinda' like Iceland.
SAINT MOTEL - COLD COLD MAN
Genre: Indie Rock, Dream Pop
Saint Motel is an indie rock band from Los Angeles that started their musical career in 2009 with the release of their firs EP, called ForePlay. I met them at the beginning of the year through their song ‘My Type’, an extremely addictive and motivating song. The music video of ‘My Type’ was released three months ago and it has already achieved a half million views. In August, Saint Motel released a new EP called My Type where they included three more new songs. Among those we can find the song called ‘Cold Cold Man’, another example of the successful sound that the band has achieved. It is a really well done EP that could lead this band to make a decisive step in their career, and a perfect prelude to the release of a surprising album shortly. They toured with important bands like Arctic Monkeys, Weezer, Band of Skulls and Imagine Dragons. Best wishes for Saint Motel and long life to their musical progression.
