Switzerland's brass-infused electro-pop trio TOMPAUL released the EP Aurora last week—containing the breathtaking track Porto. Launching full of anticipating brass waves carried throughout the verses by Tom Paul Fischer's longing voice, Porto switches into a different gear in its instrumental parts with a dark and mysterious synth hook and a deep beat.

Beharie – Oh My God

Beharie, the Norwegian indie troubadour with a flair for soul music, celebrates the simplicity in his latest single, Oh My God. Reduced to its bare bones and with the 28-year-old's soulful voice, Oh My God seems cute and harmless. However, the song's more opulent, bass-heavy, distorted chorus stands in stark contrast and gains overwhelming weight. It's a short yet surprising and memorable burst of energy.

Elio Ricca – CFH

Written during the sessions for their 2022 album Luna Park, the song CFH didn't make it onto the record as its quirkiness felt out of place. However, Swiss duo Elio Ricca—featured last year with Rainbow—now publishes this flickering, fuzzy, slightly psychedelic escalation as a single. Reminiscent of the great indie rock wave of the 2000s, CFH is proof that the genre is still alive and well.

Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys – Undress

In their fifth studio album, Heaving, Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys assemble a set of acoustically accompanied stories. The borderline-spoken word storytelling almost detaches from the meandering soundscapes, creating a refreshing yet not easily accessible experience. Undress, taken here as an example, is as slow and dreamy as sombre, thoughtful, and beautiful in its expanse.

Elischa Heller – Crumble Towards a Centre

The uncompromising essence of Zurich's Elischa Heller is shockingly exciting. Crumble Towards a Centre, the first track of his new album Unsere Zeiten Sind Unsere Körper starts without any introduction—0 to 100 in the blink of an eye. After a minute, the track fades into a recording of a jackhammer and then slowly comes back in a new facet. Experimental electronic music that's definitely not for everybody.
