Anyway, onto this week’s Songs You Should Hear…

Artist: Andrew Vendelis
Song: Trainwreck
Genre: Pop rock
Why You Should Hear It: Because, at one point or another, all of us have been faced with a relationship or situation where we were best served walking away. On his second single, Vendelis (guitarist for our friends at The Hollow Party) marches toward a better day, choosing light after surviving the darkness of an unhealthy dynamic.

Artist: DACEY
Genre: Alternative/R&B
Why You Should Hear It: This is an intriguing selection! The single’s dreamy soundscape is the perfect complement for the brighter days ahead here in the Northern Hemisphere. However, one could assess that the lush, summery vibes presented by this Vancouver-based duo serve as a mask for codependency, as our protagonist professes her willingness to go down whichever path her new love leads.

Artist: Nico Son
Song: Lost in the Shade
Genre: Indie Rock
Why You Should Hear It: Because we all have to face our darkness in order to grow from it, and this cinematic offering of experimental indie rock is the perfect soundtrack for those high-leverage moments. Emotive string arrangements, growling synths, and impassioned vocals work together to create an atmosphere to inspire the listener toward their own personal breakthrough.
