7 INDIE POP RELEASES FOR CHILLY FALL DAYS
With Thanksgiving ahead and the election in the past (sort of), November is really in full swing. If you’re planning on travelling around the holidays, please be safe and take precautions, as COVID-19 is definitely still here.
ANYWAY- As always, we’re bringing you our top Indie Pop tracks of the week (and it’s a really good week)! From a new track by Fousheé to the return of Hotel Apache, we’re so excited to share!
FOUSHEÉ - “SINGLE AF”
Following the explosive “Deep End,” Fousheé has returned with a lush and groovy track called “single af.” Her impressive vocals are center stage as she shares her pride in moving on from a relationship and being single. If you’re searching for a quick confidence boost, put on “single af.”
JILLIAN ROSSI - “SO WHAT”
Jillian Rossi’s expressive new single, “So What,” touches on themes of body positivity. The empowering ballad highlights her vocal prowess, as she shares her journey to self love. The music video features influencers, many who use their own platforms to spread the same positive message. In a world where people are brutally criticized online for their physical appearance, “So What” feels timely and necessary.
LUKE GOMM - “I’M THRU”
North London based Luke Gomm has had enough on his debut single “I’m Thru.” With a funky groove, skillful instrumentation, and electrifying production, “I’m Thru” is a homerun. A writer and producer, Gomm has balanced work for others with his artist project and plans to release a larger body of work in 2021. We can’t wait!
OLIVIA NOELLE - “PARTY”
While I personally have not done much partying in quite some time, Olivia Noelle’s “Party” can remind us of the good, the bad, and socially complicated moments that we’ve all been missing out on. On “Party,” Noelle’s honest lyrics are at the forefront, sharing the story of showing up just to see someone.
JACKIE FOSTER - “HUSH”
If you saw her on The Voice, you don’t need me to tell you that Jackie Foster can sing. However, what has been equally as exciting as watching her belt out the hits on TV, has been seeing her use that voice in her original music. With each release, she further proves why she’s a rising artist to watch, and on “Hush,” she recounts the difficulty of working through an argument in a relationship. “Hush” is catchy and clever, and if it’s any indicator of what’s to come, We Are: The Guard can’t wait!
JOHNNY 2 PHONES - “RESCUE”
Johnny 2 Phones is heartbroken and missing an ex on “RESCUE.” He’s stuck in a loop of overthinking, and reflects that in the circular lyrics. With its driving beat, catchy melodies, clever writing, and a guitar solo, “RESCUE” has us excited for what’s to come.
HOTEL APACHE - “IF HEAVEN WAS A SOUND”
Hotel Apache started as just 3 friends in a small town in California, but soon turned into a band with thousands of fans worldwide. After stepping away for a while to spend time with family, and process emotional hardship, the band returned with “This Love Rightfully Belongs to Somebody Else,” and most recently “If Heaven Was A Sound.” Synth and energy driven, “If Heaven Was A Sound” feels like flying through space.
