Discover Isadora Eden’s ethereal dream-pop sound with “Haunted.”

Colorado singer-songwriter Isadora Eden has recently released a new single titled “Haunted.”   The track is notable due to its barebones yet immersive arrangement, based on reverberated guitars and organic drum sounds. Isadora’s vocals are like a ghostly presence within the mix, floating gently and pervading the song rather than being an assertive force. Her soothing vocal style provides intimacy to the music, making it all the more engaging and easy to relate to. At about 40 seconds in, “Haunted” takes off with fuller drums and a jangly rhythm guitar that brings some brightness to the forefront but without overtaking the dream-like mood of the track. This release should be right up your alley if you enjoy artists such as Daughter , Big Thief , or Beach House . Much like the aforementioned talents, Isadora mastered the art of merging catchy melodies with beautiful textures and mesmerizing soundscapes.

A shoegaze take on Neil Young, Nirvana, Ramones and more on covers EP by Dead Rituals

  Dead Rituals has been straddling the line between Post-Punk and Shoegaze, releasing original songs and EPs since the project’s inception in 2019. Still, songwriter Andrea Caccese felt stranded and alone throughout the 2020 lockdown.   Like many artists, he found himself stuck in a small apartment with uncertainty and doubt. He didn't feel like working on original music throughout the ordeal, so he sought refuge in some of his favorite songs. This resulted in a series of cover songs shared weekly through social media over the lockdown. Instead of replicating the originals verbatim, Dead Rituals revisited the songs through the scope of post-punk and shoegaze.  Some of the songs ended up on a small EP, now available on Spotify . “Selected Covers” features a surprisingly diverse setlist. Dead Rituals offers a different spin on tracks by Radiohead, Neil Young, Mac Miller, Nirvana, Ramones, Blink-182, and even Justin Bieber. More cover songs are also available on the artist's Band
