Stockholm-based, dreamy pop artist Dominique Tey has just shared her highly anticipated ‘Heartstream’ EP.

The five-track release in part sees the artist in an even more tranquil and atmospheric light, as well as channelling more synth-heavy and dynamic electronica.

Dominique has put together a playlist for us, check it out below.

Björk – Yoga
I love Björk’s music and her ability to be her own artist. Throughout her career, she has stood her ground and refused to compromise when it comes to her unique vision. In my opinion, her music is as relevant today as it was ten years ago. And this song is one of many favorites.

Tame Impala – Feels Like We Only Go Backwards
I really like the euphoric yet melancholic vibe in this song and I’m a real fan of Kevin Parkers melodies and productions. Listening to ”Currents” never gets old.

Moses Sumney – Doomed
Sumneys has such a soulful voice, it’s so captivating, calming and silky smooth and the music and lyrics are very touching.

Barrie – Michigan
I just discovered Barrie, a indie pop band from Brooklyn. I really like their sound and vibe and this song is a favorite at the moment.

Frank Ocean – Ivy
I started listening to Frank Ocean when he first released channel ORANGE and I’ve been hocked every since. He’s a true genius in my opinon.

Nina Simone – Sinnerman
Nina Simone has been a big inspiration and I’ve listened to her a lot during my teens. I believe that she was ahead of her time in many ways. Not only did she create some of the greatest masterpieces but she also used her voice to advocate for the civil rights movement and took a stand for what she believed in.

The Beatles – Strawberry Fields Forever
This song takes me back to my childhood. The Beatles was a favorite at home and their songs crack open the door to so many cherished memories.

Nancy Sinatra – Bang bang
I first started listening to Nancy when I was about thirteen and was captivated by her voice and her storytelling.

The Japanese House – Follow My Girl
The Japanese house have a way of combining funky rhythms with modern pop melodies witch I really like. I also have a soft sport for Brains a dreamy sound that really get me.

Sounds like: Shura, Beach House, Cocteau Twins, VÉRITÉ, Banks

Apart from the brilliant name, Portsmouth-based quartet Sad Palace also writes some decent songs, all with a quirky tinge…obviously.

Like many other bands based on the British South Coast, Sad Palace’s sound has an upbeat mentality stirred with moody jangle-pop. Speaking about the lyrics, frontman Louis explains,

“The lyrics were born from the frustration of failing to communicate with people, of being overloaded with information, and a feeling that you can’t keep up with the sheer amount of things happening around you.”
