She got the idea from a documentary. “I found this video from BBC Earth where a bunch of flying fish were being eaten from the birds above and the bigger fish underneath. Me, being pretty sad and isolated at the time, made up a bunch of parallels between my hopelessness and the doomed life of flying fish, aka, “exocoetidae” shares Norii.
It’s her personal favorite song to date. Go check it out on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
“Hey this is Mike and Jason and we’re from Brooklyn. We make pop music about Mike’s life with synths and stuff. We like it, hopefully you will too, and if you don’t, that’s cool. We’ll probably make more anyway” shares the duo.

Look out for In My Room by Jen Kalicharan, the 21-year-old Guyanese-Canadian artist. Like Ariana Grande, she has a 4-octave vocal range. The R&B/pop track is the first single off of her upcoming EP, “I Did This for You”.
The inspiration for the song came when Jen was isolated from her old life at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Jen has previously dropped 7 tracks, her sound combining Swedish-pop structure with hip-hop
sonics and early 2000’s vocal production. Give it a stream on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
Listen to the new track These Games by UK’s Stephen Sims + Decade Defector. The track takes you back to the early 80’s in the world of synth wave acts like Ultravox, Soft Cell, and Depeche Mode.
“The song is about the games we play in the pursuit of love and the pain endured along the way” shares Sims.
They recorded a 10 track album during the lockdown of last year which is set for release this year, with singles following each month. Next release ‘Hunter’ late Feb. Sims track Fix Me is still one my favorites.
The indie duo hails from LA has Crystal Douesnard on vocals and Thomas Moore on guitar and production. The band released their debut track last year and garnered features in Letfuturewave, Mash Viral, and The Vinyl District. Give it a stream on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
