Brooklyn by way of Maine singer songwriter Luke Rathborne has signed to Ribbon Music, and with that news comes two new tunes, including an evocative pop song named Don’t Call Me Baby. There’s a whimsical quality to the guitar pop strummer, which has a touch of the folksy appeal of Blind Pilot but with a crunchier and more zestful rock vibrancy, as if endowed with a sliver of Declan McKenna or Will Joseph Cook. Don’t Call Me Baby is accompanied by I Wish I Was A Bird, a dreamier indietronica cut much pensive and contemplative, which you can stream below. I Wish I Was A Bird reminds me of Phosphorescent’s Song For Zula, but surrounded in experimental electronic apparatus and seated in a thicker, lusher environment. It’s quite the one two punch Luke Rathborne has given us today, and it’s only a taste of more to come soon.

Brightening things up with the wooing falsettos and infectious groove of Rathborne’s latest, a plucky and sugary song named Losing It. Phoenix like punchy guitars join forces with Luke Rathborne’s airy light voice to create a glowing new wave swooner swathed in glimmering keys and glamorous synths. Losing It is a hyper addictive taste from Luke Rathborne’s next album, Again, due out in March.
