Oh Indigo - Single Review: Wondering

27 Oct 2021 // A review by Lou Clement
Oh Indigo are a new electronic musical duo composed of Sofia Machray and Connor Taumoepeau, based in Wellington, both with their own significant musical projects behind them. Their debut single Wondering was released on 22 October, 2021.

The single is a sweet electro melody with a daydream escape type vibe. It moves between delicate harmonies and twinkling electronic accompaniments. And a background which is ever so slightly epic. The lyrics present a sentimental and yet resolved take on the heartbreak song. Machray and Taumoepeau describe the song as “about acknowledging what was or has been and embracing those memories”. We’ve all had those moments in life, where one adventure ends and change eventually brings about reflection, about what was. Wondering is a chance to hear a song built on that feeling, difficult to articulate but very easy (and comforting) to listen to.

This song sounds very much like part of a puzzle, with perhaps the tracks of a full album being the missing pieces. It will interesting to hear how Oh Indigo build their strengths in to their music – it has a contemporary urban feel, with emotional impact, elements of choral influences I’d love to hear more of, they might prove to be part of a folktronica genre, this remains to be seen – or heard.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )

Summer Thieves - Album Review: Paradise Down The Road
13 Dec 2021 // by Lou Clement
As a cyclone bears down on the city, I’m hoping that Summer returns to us… especially with this, what could be the soundtrack to the summer, the second album release from pop-indie outfit Summer Thieves. The opening track Pages straddles a gentle reggae beat and a chorus that cries out for a beach day party.
Charles Aston - Single Review: Pedestal
16 Nov 2021 // by Lou Clement
Pedestal appears to be a song about doubt. Self-criticism is one of those things that many wrestle with, and listening to Charles Aston’s new single is a chance to hear a perceptive lyricist with a hearty country-esque vocal tone tackle the subject.
Renee Millner - Single Review: So Much
01 Oct 2021 // by Lou Clement
Taranaki-based artist, Renee Millner, brings substantial quality to her music – it’s effortlessly sung, lyrically modest and full of emotional impact, because of her unique and skillful talent. Her new single So Much was self-penned and produced by Sam Johnson.
Something Zesty - Single/Video Review: Fishtank
27 Jul 2021 // by Lou Clement
Something Zesty have launched their new video for Fishtank, their latest single which was released earlier this year. The track itself is catchy with warm electric guitar chords framing the laidback lyrics -  dare I say it – it’s refreshing.
