BIG? NOT YET

B?NY | #012 | the new normal for live music

The world is changing and with it live music is slowly finding its space in small gatherings. We would like to dedicate this issue to all the concert halls and community initiatives making it possible. Meanwhile, the recording world keeps on track, so give the six following artists a listen and support them!

Here you have a back-to-work/back-to-school playlist to dance around in a chill, contemplative mood. Kindly and carefully chosen artists to face both autumn or spring (hey, southern friends!).

The precision of string instruments allows this 22-singer songwriter to express her day-to-day experiences through songs. ZAY is a multilingual artist that gets inspired and writes in not only English but also Arabic and French. As a highlight: "The First Think I'll Do", her lockdown release, is a DIY confinement piece about being eager and longing for freedom. Determined really melodic, ideal for starting over.

Isla de Caras have the ability to transport you to a state in which time flows at a different pace. Slow and fresh well-produced tunes all the way from Argentina. It started as a personal project that has evolved into a familiar band, who are ready to land overseas and delight the ears of those who are willing to be surprised. Stay tuned!

Are you in the search of a raw, indie and groovy song? You'll like Butter Bath (aka Toby Anagnostis) singles filled with ironic lyrical style and dreamy sounds. The multi-instrumentalist musician is responsible for all the creative process of his songs, and we can't get over how he's mastered the psych-soul sound.

A high-pitched voice, soulful lyrics and lower bpms got into our heart us again. In this case, folky ideas mixed with unusual drumming progressions that become a work of art. Holy Hive debuted with a full-length album last spring, combining their previously career experiences with great international artists. Effervescent and psych soul to breed our ears and hearts with melancholy.

otta's music opens the door to her most intimate self. Mixing electronic, synthetic and lo-fi sounds and experimenting with her voice, her new EP "Songbook" brings together captivating reflections, like in "just like the rain" or "sick inside" about freedom or the music industry. She creates her music at her home studio and in a way, the result is a strong voice speaking for herself. The magic is also at the back - instruments and moods change in every track, from a great piano fluidity to stronger beats.

Pom Poko are a one-of-a-kind Norwegian band. Each of their songs feels like riding a roller coaster for the very first time: you have no clue how it is going to surprise you after each turn but you are definitely overwhelmed –positively in most cases–. Like with any good roller coaster, their music is fun, oddly-shaped and makes you want more of it. Please, don’t let the occasional dissonant and distorted melodies scare you, it’s part of their charm.
