Indie Pop Mixtape 6
Artist: Salt Cathedral Featuring Matisyahu
Why? Just listen to Salt Cathedral’s Juli and Nico creating musical perfection with Matisyahu’s unique singing style and that special aura that he always bring to any track that has him be a part of. Juli’s softness goes along beautifully with Matisyahu’s rebellious voice and together they create a soundscape so riveting, so inviting and so unlike anything heard before (as this is Matisyahu’s first and only collaboration with a female singer).

Song: Nobody Else
Why? Called Sad Pop Music by some, I prefer to call it honest and relatable pop music that showcases the ups and downs of life and of those who live it. Melancholic, honest, creative, enticing, mesmerizing and simply beautiful – those and more words describe the music created by this talented Swedish duo composed of real-life couple Ebba and Michel.

Song: Freedom or this
Why? Peaceful yet strangely rebellious indie pop by talented English singer/songwriter Joe Wilkinson. With “Freedom or this” he establishes himself within his own group of music that mixes classic pop with a rock-like voice that when together makes up for a truly appealing and engaging soundscape that invites the listener to think, to ask and finally to act and not be a bystander no more.

Why? Smooth pop vocals united with mature songwriting that makes for a truly beautiful and original romantic track that evokes a certain beauty and connection with a reality that seems attainable and possible. “There she is” is truly mesmerizing and a must listen track that should be part of all the romantic moments that are bound to come in next year’s Valentine’s Day.

Artist: Lady & Jones
Song: Not Sorry
Why? Married duo Matthew and Amber Jones unite their unique melodic voices and create music that is both musically appealing but also filled with a story, a certain narrative that sounds familiar and relatable. “Not Sorry” exposes both a beautiful pop track and also human nature as it showcases the ego that two sides tend to have when in an argument, where neither is willing to accept the mistakes made and to move forward.
