Soundtracking #11 – Eyes for Gertrude

Chantelle Pike and Hannah Dean, AKA Eyes for Gertrude,  use folky vocal harmonies, waltzing piano and accordian to deliver their particular brand of songwriting. It could indeed be classified as folk pop. The duo from South West England craft catchy hooks and verse laced with humour to illuminate the everyday. And it just sounds good.
They are due  to release a full length album this year and if you can catch them live, I’d highly recommend it. This is their most recent single, Messing Around.
 

Soundtracking #3 – She Makes War

So Laura Kidd, AKA She Makes War, also makes music and visual art too. I’ve read that this type of tunage is classed as ‘gloom-pop’… seriously, is that an actual thing?

I suppose it is a bit angsty and has that poppy harmony melody thing going on in quite a catchy manner…

Regardless of genre, I quite like it so I’m shoving it in your earholes, so there.
