New melodic pop: Faerie, Nick Noon and Ferester

Faerie – k-town

Christine is better known as Faerie, who recently released her single and lyric video for ‘k-town’. On the single she comes to terms with suppressed memories and an overwhelming yearning for enlightenment. The song is a mixture of hypnotic vocals and dreamy synths and sways through a colourful forest of sounds and warm vocals.

Hers is a pensive and dreamy, soft and refined pop sound with the perfect rhythm to slowly dance along to. ‘k-town’ is the warm and comforting distraction I needed from a busy workday, and its soulful soundscape and unhurried vibe make the song an exquisite listen!

Nick Noon – Costumes

Nick Noon’s subtle bedroom pop sound is released in the form of brand new single ‘Costumes’, which comes with a video that watches like a short film. His warm vocals lead us through the cinematic soundscape of his latest release. Its sound is theatrical and its rhythm builds towards a warm and catchy indie pop chorus!

‘Costumes’ is a bold and prolific take on alternative music and helps Nick cement his spot in the spotlight. The single is taken from his upcoming EP ‘A Jejune Affair’ on which we’ll hear more of the passionate artist’s adaptive skills and storytelling lyrics. The bras sections that brighten up the soundscape of ‘Costumes’ make it an outstanding listen at the same time and have me wonder why I hadn’t heard of Nick Noon before…

Ferester – Thinkin Bout You

Ferester’s brand new single is undeniably catchy and drives on softly spoken vocals alternating with warmly sung lines. ‘Thinkin Bout You’ is the debut of the solo project from Spencer O’Grady, his sound, however, is determined and sophisticated. It is a warm artsy pop sound mixed with indie and a hint of commercial pop. The song was entirely written and self-produced by Spencer in his Glasgow flat and tells the story of a burning love that refuses to be extinguished.

Its soundscape is organically blended instruments that create a fresh and summery feel that is familiar even though we haven’t heard it before. He draws inspiration from artists such as Thomas Headon, Ruel and Harry Styles but most of all sounds like himself while telling the stories that keep him up at night.
