WFNM Roundup #20 – Late Night Radio, KidEyes, Joel Adams, Dream Beach

Late Night Radio’s new single “In My Mind” grooves with a strong R&B vibe, driven by Juliana Reed’s powerful vocal performance. Self-described as “electronic music for people who don’t like electronic music,” this Denver-based producer is effortlessly groovy and deeply in touch with a kind of electronic nostalgia. Late Night Radio is releasing his album “Sunday” on November 9.

KidEyes have just released their new single “Ghost” and it’s disquietingly atmospheric. Pads and a guitar lead set the tone as their vocals rise about it, plaintively delivering each line with a brooding energy. It’s what we’ve grown to love about KidEyes and this single delivers in a chilling way.

Joel Adam’s “Fake Friends” immediately feels special, with intimately close vocals and incredibly strong songwriting. Minimally driven by a sparse beat and strumming guitar, Joel Adam’s vocals and writing are powerfully highlighted. An impressive single from an clearly talented artist!

Teeming with interesting sound design and lush atmosphere, “Our Last Dance” by Dream Beach is as melancholic as it is rhythmic. Bouncing with a constant motion, this track establishes a tone and builds around it with VLPXX’s vocals gliding above it all. A track for long drives on quiet nights.
