Today’s Emo: Sunset in my Soul / Mia and Jonah

‘you can save me from myself / pull the water from my well / heal me from the hardest that times could be’

Another vault track because I would rather share inspired old music than forced new tunes, and the indie world has been leaving me wanting these days. Mia and Jonah are a beautiful Oakland couple who I imagined would make it big within months of my discovering their album a couple years ago, and instead are still waiting around for the world to recognize their talent (it is only a matter of time!)

A slow and steady rush, romantic proclamations, beautiful harmonies, and the only company I need around a campfire… folk at its most heartfelt. #emo

Today’s Untz: Safe and Sound / Capital Cities

‘you could be my luck / even if we’re six feet underground / I know that we’ll be safe and sound’

Happy softer emo that still rocks some steady beats, I found Capital Cities on Hypem last week and have been enjoying these popping horns and sweet vocals for days. Safe and Sound is the first single off Capital Cities debut EP out next week, and this duo has all the physical makings to make it in the indie electro pop world, with fun facial hair, aviators, plaid, and lots of promo snapshots of jumping in mid air. Sound matches the part… want to lace up my chucks and get lost on the dance floor to this. #untz
