Canadian powerhouse and one man Drive soundtrack Germany Germany has been putting out perfectly produced electronic indie pop music for the better part of the last decade, like a Swiss watch. Juneau then, is his latest album, from March this year, cooking up synths, piano, guitar and old mate Roland to a perfect harmony. Today, he released the new video to his single Ghost - directed and edited by Derek Janzen.
Ghost is a dreamy, Roland-heavy track featuring Germany Germany's trademark vocals and synth work, a perfect soundtrack to your average night time drive down lonely highways. And if you are into people staring, awkwardly not blinking, smoke, neon lights and great angles the video will take you right up and out - naturally attached below, at your convenience. Check his rich catalogue over at mighty bandcamp, all the way down to his first works from 2010.
What’s probably the best showcase festival in Europe happened last weekend in Aarhus, Denmark‘s second city. SPOT Festival traditionally hosts the latest and hottest talents the Kingdom has to offer, alongside selected newcomers from neighboring countries, all orchestrated around the city‘s music school. On the ticket over the four days were more than 300 concerts, including headline performances by When Saints Go Machine, Iris Gold, Nelson Can, Anya, and The Asteroids Galaxy Tour.
Danish supergroup Kalaha successfully blend electro and afro-jazzy vibes to create an altogether new dreamy perspective on life and times. Their last album Masala has just been crowned with a Danish Music Award in Jazz for 2017.
Now though, the quartet of producers Rumpistol and Spejderrobot, drummer Emil de Waal and guitarist Niclas Knudsen is ready to unleash a new electronic twist from their upcoming new album Mandala.
Dragon Jenny is their first single after taking home those awards and attached below, as a Team Poule exclusive. The track neatly combines their synth and kalimba skills with an aquatic drive that makes dolphins blush. It is being reported that the track was composed in Big Sur, California. And you can feel the power of unlimited opportunities and sunshine right through. A prudent statement of what's to come with the group having confirmed their first major festivals outside Denmark, including Boomtown Fair in England.
The video was directed and edited by William de Waal, with animation by Martin Stebbing and artwork beautifully designed by Zven Balslev.

Another cracker on SPOT Festival's line up in Aarhus next week comes in the form of German dreamy eyes Krakow Loves Adana.
