Latest Releases

Laura Hickli finds peace in death in her stunning, evocative newest single Love,
Outlive Me. The song drops the listener into the depths of her existential thoughtscape with erratic organ pumping, shaking inward breaths and
dissonant broken piano chords as Hickli’s exquisite, melodramatic vocals
bravely pave the way through fragile stacked vocoders, crashing textural
choruses, vintage synths, washing pedal-tones and heart-wrenching intimate
confessions. Her unique ancient hymnal and classical roots meet her
art-rock/baroque-pop appetite, further elevating her latest sound with pristine
experimental production in the likes of Weyes Blood, Imogen Heap, and Bon
Iver whilst nailing the sincerity and attitude of iconic artists like Bjork, Kate Bush
and Tori Amos.
LAURA HICKLI ON ‘LOVE, OUTLIVE ME’
I wrote Love, Outlive Me in a deep trance, imagining how my inevitable death
will feel like now that I have renounced my childhood religion and no longer
believe in an after-life. Love, Outlive Me explores my feelings as I imagine
closing the book of life after chapters of loving, hurting and enjoying existence
in this body and this world. I finally found some peace in the knowledge that
even though I can’t take any of this with me and this is the end, the love I feel
and share with my friends and family is eternal and will live on beyond me.

36?’s new song “Natural” confidently blurs the line between Rick Astley and Phoenix with otherworldly eccentricity and captivating bizarreness. Opening up with a fantastically low baritone vocal swagger over borderline elevator music and growing into glitched out anthemic indie-rock in the choruses, “Natural” keeps things delightfully weird while living in a cozy indie-pop soundscape. The newest of 36?’s fresh round of singles shows that even when a band is unafraid to lean into absurdity of artistry they can still pump out genuine art-pop flavor. Learn more here.

Laura Hickli embraces her authentic power with her explosive, evocative newest single Unholy Power. The song drops the listener into a lush landscape of layered electric guitars, vintage synths, wind and washing pedal tones as Hickli’s exquisite, melodramatic vocals truthfully pave the way through halting collapses, huge wall-of-sound choruses and intimate confessions. Her unique ancient hymnal and classical roots meet her art-rock/baroque-pop appetite, further elevating her latest sound with pristine experimental production in the likes of Weyes Blood, Lana Del Ray and Phoebe Bridgers whilst nailing the sincerity and attitude of iconic artists like Kate Bush, Bjork and Fiona Apple.

36?’s new song “Samuel” is an energetic callback to the anthemic festival rock that dominated the mid-2010s. High-energy drums, soaring guitars, hipster woah-ohs and gentle boy-girl harmonies inspire the happy jauntiness of bands like Bombay Bicycle Club and Of Monsters and Men but wrapped up in 36?’s signature wall-of-sound chaos.
