Kingdomz // “SurfsUp”

With this track I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The name Kingdomz with its superfluous letter ‘Z’ had me thinking that it could possibly be some sort of pulsing electronic outfit. But then again the track is called “SurfsUp” so maybe it is another take on the sun bleached surf pop that seems to be so popular these days. What I got though was something that was sort of a meeting ground between the two (if such ground exists). The track comes riding in on waves (heh) of bubbling, aquatic synths and everything feels like a watery shade of blue. Even the vocals seem to be listlessly bobbing around in the ocean giving the whole thing a lazy, laid-back summer vibe.

“Adeus” by Kingdomz.

New music directly from our Canadian friend, Chris M. a.k.a. KINDGOMZ. Do I sense I hint of melancholic vibes in these lyrics? “Hey Mr Skeleton you’re all bones and I don’t want to break you.” In any case, that feeling is somewhat disguised with bedroom pop and chillwave-esque overtones, so it’s still very easy to enjoy. Download it now, over at Soundcloud

While we have no idea who’s behind the project known as Kingdomz, their arsenal of bedroom-pop jams are incredulously insane;we just don’t want to believe it’s that good actually. But alas, for some incomprehensible reason they are. The newest track that popped up is “Melt the World”, a rather dreamy ‘bedroom-boogie’ gem consisting of weightless synths that carry the song afloat while a catchy vocal melody blends itself into the mix at a repetitive structure.

Another recent gem from this bedroom-pop wiz is “Suuz”, a fuzzy pop number with unbelievably catchy vocal hooks running throughout its way-too-short duration. Take note, this might just be bedroom-pop at its best. Grab both amazing gems below and scour Kingdomz’ Soundcloud for more buried treasure.

MP3: Kingdomz - Suuz



Our friend Chris who creates music under the moniker Kingdomz just released his first EP Feels Right which includes a couple of tracks we’ve posted here a while back. The project for him is indeed quite experimental and the freedom of creative direction is what he operates most on. The tracks on this EP can be interpreted then as a reflection of that process of creative freedom, an outlet of ‘bedroom’ experimentation.

Tagging most of his tracks as 'bedroom wave’ or the more upfront 'chillwave’, the 7 tracks on the EP are highly electronic-based and are mostly of the 'chilled’ side of things, but at the same time, genre-bending with certain tracks. What stands out most is his distinct vocal talent that leads the abyss of electronic elements into something more tangible and graspable. The EP is a great collection of his bedroom experiments, making for a wonderful listen if you’re into the realm of new discoveries and eclectic songwriting. Grab two of the brilliant newer tracks off the new EP down below and grab the entire thing directly on the Kingdomz Tumblr.

Kingdomz - “Your Ghosts are My Ghosts”

I’m such a bad tumblr friend to have not featured Chris M. ( on this blog yet, especially because dream pop and chillwave are my favorite kinds of music, ah!

I swear, talent is in the blood of practically every Torontonian musician (why yes, I did just make that word up, thank you for noticing) I’ve ever encountered, and this guy’s so legit. So, stop reading my drabble and delve into this track, right meow.
