As we dive into a brand new tune from Toronto’s NEW CITY, I feel like we’ve gone full circle. It was almost exactly a year ago that the alt/electro-pop outfit made their debut with Coachella, and now we get to share Getting Closer just as many of my music friends are preparing to make their annual pilgrimage to the festival these next few weekends. NEW CITY’s Coachella was an instant success, as expected, as was their following releases. They’ve since signed to Mosley (Timbaland’s new label) and Universal. Balmy electronica and infectious pop hooks abound on new single Getting Closer, which explores the ups and downs that come with chasing dreams and the courage it takes to trust yourself. The song is a declaration of empowerment, a mellifluous feel good anthem to carry us into the summer months. Getting Closer is available from major outlets, here.

Though a relatively young band, Calva Louise is fast on their way to being movers and shakers in the indie rock scene back home in London. They dole out an arresting load of quirky lilting, punk inflected indie rock on new single Getting Closer, quickly convincing me I need to get closer to this band and their delightful brand of scuzzy melodic sound.  Of the track, the band said: “Getting Closer is about the identity crisis that young adults go through in their early twenties, when they feel their time is up and they have to decide if they’ll be able to one day become the person they’ve always dreamed of being.” Catch Calva Louise in London during their residency in partnership with This Feeling. For another fine taste of this burgeoning band’s music, stream spiked chugging, fuzz crunching noise rocker I’m Gonna Do Well below.
