The Deer Du Bois Playlist #133

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?

This week, the Deer Du Bois playlist puts the POW back in power-pop with dashing new music and melodic realness!

Honey-sweet but with a confident edge is the new trend thanks to Ralph and “Busy Man“, but also Dominique with “If I Could Go Back” and Vessels ft. Anna Of The North and their track “Had A Love”.

The power and strength of the voice pushes aside the harmonic boundaries with new singers as Örhn and her “Bang Bang” track, but also the experimental vocal electronic pop of Austrian-Brooklyn singer Milán on “Meaning” or with the more dark glowing and mystical pop by L.A. star Ninth Child with “Say What You Mean”. Newcomer Tepu is also bringing a fresh touch by showing his “darkside!”

Let the dust after the quake set and dive underneath with the inner-strengthening harmonies like the play- & soulful alt-pop of Penguin’s Lonely Heart on “The Day I Forgot To Sing” or with So Below who goes “Hard”. That’s the spirit!
