Seattle-based duo glass egg is the project of songwriter/musician Emilia Glaser and collaborator Julian Stefanzick. The duo met in college back in 2017 and quickly became friends; two years later, Glaser would bring in Stefanzick to play bass for glass egg, which was their existing solo performance project. Though evoking the ethereal, intensely emotive tones of bands like Beach House and Weyes Blood, glass egg is in a space all their own, amalgamating dream pop, shoegaze, and freak folk. “Choke” the duo’s gorgeous debut single, is about “breaking free from someone who is destructive, accompa ..read more

Superfan is the solo indie pop project of Los Angeles based artist Kali Flanagan.

Earlier this week, Butter Bath – aka the psychedelic dream pop project from Sydney-based multi-instrumentalist Toby Anagnostis – released the stunning single “My Love,” featuring fellow dream pop artist Jermango Dreaming.
