French singer Laurence Nerbonne has definitely caught our attention. The music for her catchy single "Montreal XO" represents the city's vibe in all types of ways. This simple yet powerful music video was shot in Montreal and directed by Julien Demers Arsenault. The Montreal-made video features local talents and we even spotted some MARKANTOINE clothing in there. This is the kind of indie-pop release that will get stuck on loop in your mind (in a good way) as you rewatch it for the Nth time to...

Montreal DJ and Producer Shash'U has released yet another visually appealing music video, this time for his single "Ur Body". The track is off his ‘80s-inspired PWRFNK EP in which we have covered in his full interview piece as soon as it came out. Putting a playfully creepy spin on his roots in the professional street dance world, this body part-swapping clip directed by William Fradette takes viewers to “the lab” for real. A modern-day wink at the ol' fashion Frankenstein story, but with a...

Era Istrefi is an Albanian Kosovar singer-songwriter. She rose to fame after releasing her debut single "Mani për money" in 2013, and she's definitely caught our attention with her latest music video for "Bonbon" which you can watch above.

We tend to get picky when writing about new musical acts outside of Canada. We prefer them to be unsigned, and located in obscure places too. This was the case when we discovered Caandides, a group based in Paris that dub their music as Folktronica. The 6-piece group have such a different approach to making music, just like making art, involving weird visuals and an out of the ordinary concept of process when making the music. Here's how they describe it: Every expedition needs preparation....

Following their previous EP release for Calico, the group decided to grace the world with their latest track titled "Annie" which was recorded in collaboration with Converse Rubber Tracks, a collaborative concept that we are very familiar with.

Disclaimer: I personally got the chance to watch this video a while back as it was sent to me privately as a courtesy. I was definitely sitting down and I am warning you to do the same. We actually premiered BRAVES' single "Dust" at the beginning of the year, but couldn't wait for this music video to get released so we could finally unleash 'the beast' to the world. BRAVES is a newly formed Los Angeles based trio who share a desire to raise awareness for lesser known causes. Keeping things...
