Just recently he released SSoofftt TToouucchh on the masses; a selection of beautifully crafted songs, perfect for a warm and sunny spring afternoon.

🎧 PREMIERE: New River Beach – ‘The Right Place’

From Green Go to Paradise Animals and newly discovered Favours, Toronto musician Mark Andrade has always been connected to The Indie Machine in one way or another. So, it only seems fitting that we get to introduce you to his latest project with his wife Marney Isaac, New River Beach.

In the spirit of Caribou’s ‘Can’t Do Without You’, The Right Place is a song that evokes much emotion; rolling synths and hazy vocals creating a sonic landscape you won’t soon forget. With its pure simplicity, from beginning to end, The Right Place leaves us yearning for more.

Isaac plays almost all of the instruments on their debut track. After laying down all the parts to the song, Andrade used his production skills and sampling techniques to help shape the pieces into a cohesive whole.

“We recorded “The Right Place” in our home studio in the evenings after our kids went to sleep. New River Beach is a place near Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada – Marney’s home town. We’ve been reflecting on the concept of well-being and its connection to place. From playing a warm Juno, to a washed-out trumpet and bass guitar, the act of playing together, especially during these isolated and uncertain times, became a place of its own.”

Rumour has it the duo are hard at work on their follow-up single, so stay tuned for more on their socials. Until then, bask in the glory that is The Right Place… headphones are highly recommended.

🎧 Seven Saturdays – ‘Solar Dens’

I vaguely remember coming across Seven Saturdays back in the early days of The Indie Machine. His production was part of a special time in music where bedroom-producers were creating some of the most incredible sounds around. His work is reminiscent of artists like Foxes In Fiction and Teen Daze who we absolutely adore here at The iM.

Fast forward to 2020 and Jonathan is, thankfully, still creating sounds. His latest single Solar Dens is a soothing, ambient journey into the unknown, filled with all the right ingredients. Check it out in the embed below and be sure to head over to his socials to show your support.

🎧 Cut Copy – ‘Love Is All We Share’

Melbourne electronic-pop outfit Cut Copy have a new song out after what seems like a very long absence. It’s a real moody, atmospheric number, that will leave you wanting more.

Love is All We Share” is a song we made using only a handful of sounds, hoping to create an intimate and unworldly atmosphere. It was written a year ago about the anxieties of imagined future times, as technology becomes more all-consuming. But in light of recent events, the song took on an eerie significance. Now, with our immediate future uncertain and people the world over self-isolating, “love” more than ever, feels like one of the best things we can share.”

Check out Love Is All We Share in embed below. Presumably, this means more music is on the way, so stay tuned.
