Every Wednesday on HighClouds, from now until death do us part, we publish the picky playlists of our Brussels’ friend and collaborator Deer Du Bois. He has been demonstrating a real talent in highlighting emerging and talented acts and imposes himself as a real talent-spotter. Every week, his playlist is a sharp and buzzing selection of new discoveries in indie and pop music. And lucky you: we are now your fresh and fun place to weekly seat and savor his delightful “indie.tronic.dream.pop.chill.wave” cocktail. So, do you mind a cup?
MISSIO, the band from Austin, Texas is hard to pin down. Listening to their music, it soon becomes apparent that this is a band completely unconcerned with traditional genre trappings. They approach their brand of electronic-based alternative music in a way that avoids some of the still-developing cliches of the indie pop genre. Compared to ostensibly similar bands, MISSIO‘s hooks are a little less obvious–and their compositions a little more complex. Discover the amazing “Hey You, Remember My Name” in this post!
