LBM – ‘Bad Habits’

LBM is not a new name for us here at Essentially Pop, in fact, we’ve been following his journey for nearly a year now, starting with his singles, ‘Stranded’, in May, and ‘Make Believe’ in July, last year. He’s back now with a fab new release, ‘Bad Habits’, along with a music video that beautifully captures the good looks and charm of the Pennsylvania singer and rapper.

We’ve been writing about Sonarpilot for a while now, the artist whose real name is Michael Moppert. With The Mirage Project, which he started in Spring 2020, he’s crafted six fractal films, using bespoke soundtracks, designed to appear monthly.

Moonray – ‘When You’re Around’

The first thing you’ll notice in the clip for Moonray’s latest single, ‘When You’re Around’, is the DeLorean, as it pulls up outside some 80s style skating rink, and singer and synthesist Barbara Higginbotham gets out, hair wildly backcombed, and a cassette tape hanging around her neck on a thick gold chain. It’s ‘Back To The Future’ meets ‘Stranger Things’ and already we love it.

The Orange Apples. – ‘Naked Love’

The music video for The Orange Apples. track ‘Naked Love’ opens with a shot of two young women and a young man, similarly dressed, all very attractive, together in a field, with their backs against a tree. The grasses are swaying in the wind, and it’s both idyllic and slightly unsettling. The unease continues when another man approaches the trio; it’s all very intriguing and confusing, deliberately ambiguous.
