Don't You Wait
by Cloves

 

19-year-old rising star Kaity Dunstan, who goes by the monicker Cloves, just dropped this second instalment of her three track sophomore EP "XIII". The budding singer, who recently picked up from hometown Melbourne and made the big move to LA, embodies a style that resembles that of Lana Del Rey - a voice that pays homage to the Roaring 20s, juxtaposed with a soulful, moody dream-pop production. Nice track - enjoy.

Hedera
by Isaac Vallentin

 

Ottawa-based multi-talent Isaac Vallentin's introspective debut "Hedera" is "a contemplation of growth and identity, an editorial on the non-romantic side of love, and a handful of reminders for the future, when things once again become unclear." Isaac is booking a tour of eastern Canada for this fall, definitely something to check out. You'll be able to find the info once it's released on our Events page, as well as Isaac's socials:
