California indie-pop duo Ruby Red have dropped a sultry smooth single that can be described as deeeply vibey. New track “Superbloom” is boiling over with chunky beats and thick bass, suavely melded with nostalgic synth that invites a contemporary indie spin. Like...

delores galore, new growth

Alright, we are way overdue for stepping back in time with a killer soundscape to aid us. Packed to the brim with disco-era synth flare, Delores Galore's new album New Growth sounds a little more old school than one might assume when dissecting the album title, though...
