In 2016, new artist QUINN XCII released his EP, Bloom, and now he’s back with his new single, Straightjacket. It’s a catchy and very bouncy track that will put a little pep in your step! It would fit in nicely on pop radio, which makes us think that 2017 is going to be a good year for this Michigan native.
Watch out Lana Del Rey! There’s a new cool girl in town romanticizing Los Angeles with an intoxicating croon. New York-based songstress NIIA is back with a smoking hot new single called Last Night In Los Feliz and we can’t wait to share it with you.
Los Angeles based duo MAKO is destined for a radio-friendly hit with their brand new single, Real Life. MAKO members Alex Seaver and Logan Light collaborated with Morgan Page on the track, and they ended up created an uplifting, fun and memorable three minutes of pure indie pop fun that is bound to grab them some deserved attention.
New Zealand-based artist Tsorf (pronounced like surf) is here with some downtempo goodness on her latest track, Hold on to Me. Her ethereal vocals are simply magical on this third single, and they glide over pulsating 80s’-inspired synths and subtle atmospherics beautifully.
Dan Vidmar, the artist with the moniker of Shy Girls has left a lot of ladies and gentlemen drooling. His lyrics carry so much soul that make even the coldest of hearts want to feel. His latest pop ballad, Why I Love, opens up haunting and devastating tone that is memorable due to the Vidmar’s vocals. I also feel that it’s a perfect track for the season.
Relationships are mega hard, especially when you know the end is coming. Sometimes we let things go on for too long, but when the final straw is pulled it’s time to blow out the light as the duo GEMS writes about in their dreamy pop single, Blow Out The Light.
