New Wolf & Moon, Sam Gifford, Hannah Georgas, Eliza & The Delusionals, Don't Believe in Ghosts


Wolf & Moon: A Tape Called Life


Just about a year after releasing their debut album, Before It Gets Dark, this husband-wife duo gives us the first taste of their next LP, Follow The Signs, due in September. Stefanie and Denis set out from The Netherlands a few years back to travel and play their dream-folk-electronic music. The theme of this song, they tell us, is that life can't be rewound: "All we've got is now and there is so much to experience in life. The song is about the balance of being in the now and dreaming about a future."

Sam Gifford: Something Else


Back in late 2018 we featured Sam Gifford & The Innocent's debut single, "What You Want," and since then a couple of other tracks from the London alt-rock band have found their way into our big playlist. Now, after some personnel changes in his band, Gifford is preparing to release an EP this summer, Man Made, under just his name (insert not-so-innocent-anymore joke here). This first single is a solid, upbeat rocker on the theme of taking a chance on something (or someone) new: "We could fade away / Or we could feel something else."

Eliza & The Delusionals: Pull Apart Heart


From their just-released second EP, A State of Living in an Objective Reality, comes this rocking track from Australia's Eliza Klatt and her band. Backed by guitarists Kurt Skuse and Ashley “Tex” Martin and bassist Ruby Lee, Klatt belts out a lament about a relationship that isn't working: "Pick apart the pieces of my mind / And  in the morning, I'll tell you that I'm fine."

Don't Believe In Ghosts: Living Like This


We gave this bouncy track a few spins on The Detour, and now we're moving it into our New Music bin. New York-based DBIG evolved from singer-songwriter-producer Steven Nathan's home studio in 2017. He's joined by Dan DelVecchio on guitar, Alex Goumas on bass and Ken Yang on drums. This is the latest in a series of singles they've been turning out since early last year. What's the idea behind the band name? “Don’t give energy to the ghosts of your past,” says Nathan.

Hannah Georgas: That Emotion


This Vancouver singer-songwriter connected in 2018 with The National's Aaron Dessner and began working on music at his upstate New York studio. The result is a Dessner-produced album coming later this year, and this is the first single. Georgas says: “I always felt happy with my songs, but during these sessions we found something else - musically a new warmth and depth and, vocally, a delivery that is more raw and expressive, allowing the emotion of each song to shine through.”
