Since I recently discovered the music of London-based indie singer-songwriter Charlie Cunningham, I've found myself regularly listening to most of his musical back catalog over the past week. This is some truly impressive and stunning songwriting, performance and vocal delivery - I wonder how I hadn't encountered his music sooner. New singles "Sink In" and "Permanent Way", produced by Sam Scott and Duncan Tootill, are presumably preludes to a forthcoming album or EP release.
From one listen to the opening track of Follow, the debut album from emerging London-based, Swedish singer-songwriter Malin Andersson, you know you're about to embark on one mesmerizing and truly magical musical journey. The eleven reflective tracks that comprise this outstanding album paint an elegant and expansive soundscape that conjures up sensations and images of crisp ocean breezes, rolling waves and windswept clouds. Fingerstyle acoustic guitar, cello, and minimal, emo
Sporting impressive killer guitar riffs, infectious melody and lyrics, and even a gang of rollergirls roving through urban Berlin architecture, "Nouveau" is the rocking new single and music video from the Berlin/London music duo of Mark Fernyhough & Steven Horry. After a few listens, you too might find yourself 'going nouveau' and singing along to this exceptional new song. From the first listen, I was captivated by the upbeat, tight, infectious guitar riff that drives most o
If you are a fan of atmospheric, acoustic, lo-fi folk in the style of Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine, or Mojave 3, then you definitely need to check out In Silver Halides, the spectacular and enchanting new album from West London-based acoustic singer-songwriter Lowpines (a.k.a. Oli Deakin). With musical releases dating back to mid-2012, Lowpines has been crafting elegant, dreamy and stunning acoustic indie folk gems that bring to mind images of gentle rains, summer evenings,
Rugged, tough and ... well, "sticky" are the adjectives that pop into my head as I watch the sizzling new music video for "Desire" from London-based, indie singer-songwriter Bryde (aka Sarah Howells). The track is the first new material from Bryde since the release of her single "Less" earlier this Spring. "Desire" is one of Bryde's strongest tracks to date, with Sarah's talented songwriting and stellar vocals boldly beaming through - a track that is lyrically demanding and u
London-based and Welsh-born singer-songwriter, Chey, has recently released her impressive power ballad, "She's Got You," with enchanting, heartfelt vocals, and lyrics that speak to the object of one's affection, after having been shunned in favor of another. The lyrics are clever and well-written - some sound like they belong in a classic country song about jilted love (e.g., "Oh this whiskey in my glass just won't do. Because I want what she's got, and she's got you"), but t
It was only a few months ago that we had a listen to the first single ("Keep On Keeping On") from UK singer-songwriter Anna Pancaldi's forthcoming Sweet Charity EP. At the time, Anna commented to SoundThread: "This EP has turned out to be the most proud I have been of anything I've ever made. A very special moment for me." Today, Anna premiers a brand new track from the EP - the beautiful and moving "Brother". She remarks, "This song is my most honest offering thus far and h
We are already in love with Anna Pancaldi's previous EP releases ("Dear Joey," and "Black Tears") and are beyond excited about this talented, unsigned, London-based singer-songwriter's new single release on October 10. "Keep On Keeping On", produced by James Kenosha (Rhodes, Gavin James), is the name of the song, and is taken from Anna's forthcoming EP which is scheduled for release in early 2017. SoundThread had an early listen to the song and we can tell you that it sounds
