Philadelphia by way of Brooklyn experimental electronic producer hectic zeniths first came to our attention way back in 2012. His song, i might drown was on constant repeat here at The iM.
Today we take a trip down memory lane and (re)introduce you to a song that was part of a defining era in indie-electronic music. Check it out in the embed below and don’t forget to hit up hectic zeniths over on Bandcamp… thankfully, he is still making music.
The year is 2010 and the indie music scene is hitting its stride here in Toronto. Enter John O’Regan and his D’Urbervilles (pre-Matters) side-project Diamond Rings… everything points to a bright future for indie-show-goers in the T-Dot. That said, we’re not sure there’s a song that reminds us more of that time period like All Yr Songs; a track we will never tire of.
Check it out in the embed and hit up John’s most recent project JG Ballad at the ‘listen’ link below. There’s some killer covers on there only he could create… and we mean that in the best way possible.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Toronto electronic-pop duo Southern Shores. Just recently we came across their new single, Estrisa and we can’t take this thing off repeat here at The iM. The song conjures up memories of late 00’s era Delorean and Air France; wispy and carefree, sun soaked vibes that leave us longing for a day at the beach.
Check out the track in the embed below and be sure to visit their socials for more. The new EP, Siena (Part I) is due for release via Cascine on June 12th.
Five minutes and fifty-two seconds of pure magic… that’s the best way we can describe the latest single from Vancouver electronic-pop producer Teen Daze. The new song will be included on his latest EP, due for release on June 26th.

Halifax indie-electronic-pop-rocker Rich Aucoin might very well be one of the most underrated musicians in all of Canada. As long as this man is making music, we are willing to listen. Recently he released a brand new single from his forthcoming long-player, United States. The track and album are an ode to his recent trek across America in support of mental health… a very worthy cause to say the least.
Check out Reset in the embed and be sure to hit up his socials for more. And, if you haven’t heard it yet, take a listen to How It Breaks over on Bandcamp.
Bristol-based dream-pop duo Jadu Heart are set to release their sophomore album, Hyper Romance on September 25th. We recently came across the new song and video for Walk The Line and we can’t get enough here at The iM. It’s a carefree, melodic number that hits just in time for summer.
Have a watch in the embed and be sure to check out some other album cuts at the ‘stream’ link below. Looking forward to hearing more from these two going forward.
Toronto ambient-electronic artist otonoto has been on our radar for some time now. He’s dropped a series of singles over the last couple of months and we’re stoked about the latest release, Summer Indoors featuring Britta B.
Check it out in the embed below and be sure to hit up the socials for more. And, while you’re at it, take a listen to Forget, another one of our favourites.
Daniel Benjamin might be one of the hardest working artists in all of music; it appears as though he is always cooking something up. His electronic-dance-pop project Moon King has been around since the early days of The iM and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Below you’ll find our favourite Moon King cut, Only Child, courtesy of our weekly TBT. And, while you’re at it, Daniel has an infectious new song out, Seconds From You with Detroit’s Vespre. Hit up the ‘watch’ link below for more.
We were first introduced to Sun Glitters way back in 2011. A lot has changed in the world since then but fortunately for us, Victor Ferreira is still creating music. Just recently he released SSoofftt TToouucchh on the masses; a selection of beautifully crafted songs, perfect for a warm and sunny spring afternoon.
Check out the album (and video) in the embed below and be sure to hit up his socials for more. Thankfully, there is no shortage of creativity when it comes to Sun Glitters.
Toronto’s Devi McCallion (aka Girls Rituals) has a collection of songs out that were recently unleashed on the masses. She also happens to be one half on Toronto duo Black Dresses who released a stellar effort back in early April. We’re digging what we hear, so now it’s time to share with you.
