Noé – Rabbit Hole

Noé has to be the most consistent artist I’ve stumbled upon in 2019. Each and every release she’s unveiled has been a meticulously crafted gem that finds indie-pop at its finest, and like clockwork, she delivers yet again with a brand new single. Titled “Rabbit Hole”, it’s a hazy mist of snappy percussion and vocals […]

Jesse And The Wolf – Talk To Me

Jesse And The Wolf is one the premier production start ups in the game right now and they come through with a straight up scorcher on “Talk To Me”. It’s like my favorite old school soul rockers came together and decided to chop up a legendary genre into an offering that’s purely for the dance […]

Mirage Club – Communication

Who better than the French to deliver an effortlessly cool indie-pop jam? The answer is truly no one as Mirage Club make readily apparent – their new single “Communication” is a funky, groovy tour through ’70s and ’80s influence channeled via the lens of crystal clear modern production stylings. It’s a track best suited for […]

Taylor Beau & Lil Anne – Faded

Anne Winters might be best known for her award-winning acting chops, but she shows an equally exciting knack for singing on her debut music single. It’s a fitting release for the newly anointed Lil Anne as it comes alongside none other than her partner in crime Taylor Beau, a connection that can be felt through […]

Lo Lytes – Take The Whole Bottle

Lo Lytes dropped a quality track called “Winter” earlier this year, but “Take The Whole Bottle” is a next level release that really feels like a collision of pop and r&b at its absolute finest. The intonations of his vocals and the moody pop instrumentals immediately conjure up images of The Weeknd – a lofty […]

okaywill – Pretend

okaywill has blessed us with a song that sits comfortably between the indie-pop juggernauts of old and forages toward a new, contemporary class of its own. I personally get serious hints of The Postal Service via whimsical storytelling and Neon Indian via chillwave-esque vocals alongside the twinkling synths, but I’m sure any listener will be […]

Charlz – Amaze Me

Australia is producing some of the best voices in pop right now (i.e. Kota Banks, Nicole Millar, Muki, etc.) and Charlz fits perfectly into that rising movement. Her newest “Amaze Me” is a beautiful blend of airy production giving room to breathe for her stunning vocals which naturally ebb and flow throughout the track with […]

Haunted Days – Next Winter

Haunted Days has come through with an utterly beautiful track that just might be my favorite release of the year. It’s understated yet dramatic, freezing yet familiar, classic yet forward-thinking. The producer has delivered a blend of sounds that sit somewhere on an isolated iceberg in a sea of dusty hip-hop percussion, evaporating vocal samples, […]

BVRGER – BRAINFOOD

I wrote about BVRGER’s “COOPER” earlier this year and he builds upon the single’s promise with an intricate EP.  Titled BRAINFOOD, it’s an intoxicating blend of sonic influences that bring house, r&b, hip-hop, and soul all under the same colorful umbrella. My personal favorite cut is “KISS & TELL” which has a wonderfully bouncy beat […]

Las Aves – You Need A Dog

Las Aves are masters in edgy pop music and that couldn’t be more apparent on “You Need A Dog”. This reminds me of the bombast of Sleigh Bells with the gritty electronics of Crystal Castles all the while sounding like a main-stage pop anthem. I’m usually not a fan of spoken intros, but they totally […]
