Bears Smoke Cigarettes – https://soundcloud.com/bears-smoke-ci…
Bears Smoke Cigarettes is the perpetually evolving project of good buddies Bruno and Jonathan, who have been producing music influenced by several genres for over 10 years. The talented duo have often been separated by vast distances, causing them to traverse an electronically themed music pathway. Taking advantage of the amazing technology we have available today, they have recorded the aptly named first album, ‘HIBERNATUS’ as a smirk and salute to the distance that could have promptly stalled or ended their collaboration. Follow the link to hear these talented individuals perform on several types of instrument across an expanse of sounds.
Land Of Trees – https://open.spotify.com/artist/4Jew7xYlCjBxm0BLAcRdIn
Land Of Trees are an indie-folk band from Sweden drawing inspiration from mother nature and artists the likes of Ben Howard, Passenger and Mumford and Sons. The softly spoken three piece consists of Marcus, Daniel and Pontus who write enjoyable and melodic songs using stalwart folk instruments like the acoustic guitar, banjo and harmonica. Have a listen in the embedded SoundCloud player and don’t forget to follow these guys for more sweet original music.
CircleLight – https://soundcloud.com/circlelight
The project of 20 something year old Emanuele Durante, CircleLight is water marked by open, earnest lyrics, simple and catchy musicianship and wonderfully layered vocal harmonies – “Brother, don’t you see that we better open the doors, nobody comes first, and won’t you listen for a little while, and talk to those strangers outside”. Be sure to check out CircleLight’s new music on SoundCloud, as Emanuele has transformed his solo pastime into a 4 piece band.
Chelou – https://chelou.bandcamp.com/
On the opposite side of the indie spectrum is wistfully singing, musically dense and enchanting Chelou. The creator of intricate and intelligent music, its no wonder Chelou’s SoundCloud page is filled with comments from fans begging for more. At times musically sparse, at other times complex and detailed, a big part of the appeal of this music is its ability to keep you interested and in anticipation of whats coming next. Check out the Halfway to Nowhere video if you want to trip.
Check out the below links to hear the latest from Chelou and to discover the new 2017 tour dates:

Luís Trindade – https://luistrindade.bandcamp.com
A wonderfully melancholic resonance underpins Luís Trindade’s method as he murmurs heartfelt words alongside the ebb and flow of his rhythmic style of guitar playing. An unsigned artist producing his own music, Luís only has music that exists in the digital realm, however as he garners an impressive following on all of the social platforms, it is probable he will become more eminent as his practice of beautiful, simple and meaningful music continues. Luis’ latest offering, ‘Can You See This Darkness’ is available on his Bandcamp webpage and is definitely worth a listen, check it out!
“If you like my music please support me, you can download my LP at bandcamp, or through a donation to firstname.lastname@example.org. I don´t have a label, so my music exists only in digital editions. Thanks for the visit and for giving a listen to my music.”
Martin Piehlmeier – www.martinpiehlmeier.com
This tremendously talented guitarist strums, picks, slaps and beats his way through songs which are rhythmically complex and captivating. Although lacking a vocal presence, the music produced from a single guitar is melodically impressive and does all of the talking. Pacing his way through several different moods in every song, each turn of a corner is another practice in guesswork, wondering where Martin will take you next in the musical dream he delicately weaves.
Conjugal Visit – https://soundcloud.com/conjugalvisit
C-Visit is the solo side project of Paul Daddario, originally from the indie rock group Farmertan. Writing mostly a chill out style of indie acoustic folk music, he lays very warm vocal tracks down which manage to fill in all the spaces entirely. His Soundcloud page features a selection of original music, outtakes and extras from the main band and even the occasional cover from the likes of The Strokes, Pixies and Eagles of Death Metal.
“Made for listening IN HEADPHONES, while walking down urban side streets, under overcast ennui laden skies”.
