The gorgeously executed new video by The Bulls - Anna Bull Brook and Marc Sallis of the Duke Spirit - artfully demonstrates the suffocating image of a being who is bound by a heavy, intertwined rope. It ties in flawlessly with their latest track "Come Unwound", which soars gently with its tremolo-lead guitar lines and towering drum patterns as you see both of them engage in mournful reflection. A compelling introduction from what would seem like an unlikely pair, we can expect more from them once they release their debut EP later this year.

A winding guitar opens the latest track by low-key psych-folk duo The Tulips, "Scorpio Moon", overlayed with a slow-burning organ that's endowed with a melancholy, mournful yearn.  The languid pace is conveyed with seductive splendour, and the Macarthur residents make hurt sound beautiful in the spacious, burning sorrow that persists. The song's sense of ghostly detachment partly symbolizes their second full-length, Echo Blue, which was recorded in uncanny locales such as the basement of an old historic building and a cathedral church. Echo Blue is coming out sometime in early 2015.

Living in a world where technology rules and controls everything around us, I find it quite ironic to listen to an electronic band that pays homage to the vinyl roots most of us grew up to. Claire Evans and Jona Bechtolt of YACHT are slowly becoming Los Angeles’s future of music technology. Within their single, “Where is the Disco?”, Claire and Jona engraved their entire musical catalogue into the background of the song; however it is unplayable in the grand scheme of things, we are taught that music is more than an emotional thing, but is actually tangible. Something society is slowly losing grasp of - with so many ways to download music straight off the internet, we lose the simplicity of physically holding our media close to us. YACHT’s electronic abilities to extend the boundaries of how we see and hear music works like magic, creating a genre-defying concept that infiltrates every type of music. A satisfying twist to how we hear our music, rethinking the possibility of teaching an old dog new tricks; YACHTs utopian style of music has just set the bar that much higher. - Kayla Hay

Aria Pullman and Jason Rivera banded together in 2012 under the streaming boulevard lights of Los Angeles to create Some Go Haunting. The musicians first bonded over their dueling love and passion for rock and roll; they first released a self titled EP that dialed into that genre and boasted a variety of sounds that included fast rock, dance mash-ups, calming vocals and feel good rock-able beats. This year, the dynamic duo won a Sports Network Music Competition called “beIN the Beat” and was flown to The Hit Factory in Miami to record their hit single, "Me And You",for the Madrid vs Barcelona soccer pre-game. The live recording was aired on October 25th at 9am and the two walked away with $3,000 as a prize. Some Go Haunting’s unforgettable lyrics in their single, "House of Arcadia", set me back into a dream-like daze, Pullman’s voice so subtle and powerful she creates a nirvana that only builds and escalades with the help of the track's smooth guitar and drum beats. Their new album, Wandering Souls, is set to be released in 2015. - Kayla Hay

There's not much information about elusive electro pop artist Garrett Borns, aka BØRNS, at the moment, besides his love of taking selfies and taking snapshots that look like old polaroids. They're both well-documented on his Instagram page, though what he's giving attention to this week is the release of his debut EP Candy. Backed up by major label powerhouse Interscope, his latest single, "10,000 Emerald Pools", should soon make him a household name - the track has a beach bum vibe, as Borns confesses that he's falling deeply (yes, literally, as the title suggests) for someone. There's plans for him to tour this fall, with dates coming up shortly.
