From all indie genres, Folk seems to have a special place in our hearts. We can't help to get back to folk songs when we look for some calm and inspiration. When we want to hope for a nice dream. Or when we are feeling in the mood for some very well told stories. As an honour to those feelings, this series is entitled TIFU (Today I Folked Up). Only folk songs from new folk artists. To let you and ourselves go.

Adam Shavin – Periscope

A guitarist from Atlanta, it’s how Adam Sharvin describes himself, without the need for more adjectives or complex demonstrations of what kind of artist he is. It is also with that lever of straightforwardness that we were introduced to the way he composes and destines great folky-like guitar melodies in a song. The example is “Periscope” one of the latest songs he has released and the title track of a four-track EP. He describes it as a “Surfy blues track that sounds like the open ocean” and we feel the waves and the full deep blue in these beautiful guitar elements that makes us feel like songwriting can be very simple but still very effective and powerful.

All these songs (and all previous songs featured in TIFU) are also featured on our folk playlist. Follow it on Spotify:
