“Beyond Reason is about this melancholic state we felt at the time, the feeling of being depressed, overwhelmed, but still wanting to be hopeful.” tells us Cologne-based electronica duo Ameli Paul on their new track and our premiere song for today. Out of their stunning three-part EP the melodic tune expresses exactly what we feel right now and their sound just carries us into wonderful memories of us dancing the night away.
The American indie pop group actually came together in Australia when Noah Taylor followed his heart across the world, and down under. He ended up crashing with the group of guys who unknowingly were about to become his bandmates. With a modern alt pop sound that pays homage to some of the genre’s most prolific artists like The 1975 and Troye Sivan, 19&YOU has already emerged with a compete level just as exciting as the aforementioned greats, and they’re just beginning to strut their stuff.
“There’s a great sense of freedom in being an independent artist, but you don’t become very rich. But at the end of the day I get to share what I truly love and am passionate about. It’s cliché but every time I meet people on tour, coming to my shows or reaching out and telling me my songs mean a lot to them, I feel like the richest person in the world.”

While watching the magnificent video the world stands still for a while. We get lost in those pastell colours of the horizon and we feel like merging with the dancers.
Many friends told me recently that they were listening to old music from their childhood or teenage years. Funnily enough I did as well. Sort of calming in those turbulent times to dwell in a bit of nostalgia, isn´t it? Well, so Argentine-American teenage artist Pilar Victoria’s new single, a stunning 80s-inspired song, accompanied by a warm & enchanting visual, is just the sound I need right now.
Music is meant to unite us. That concept feels especially relevant today, but for the brothers of Saint Nomad, it’s become one of the driving principles behind their lives as individuals, and a band. Nikita, Ruslan, and Yan Odnoralov were just small children when their parents moved their family from a small Russian city called Pyatigorsk between the Black and Caspian seas to Denver, Colorado, USA.
What a perfect tune to chill. And dream. While we move in time to the cool sound we can remember vividly those great days and nights hanging out with friends.
The first beats start. And we can already feel it. The catchy sound takes us to a pink sunset and watching the city falling asleep while we are more awake…
