It’s that time again, and by time again, we mean a sugar coma and a cavity or three, because our Sweet Releases this week are sure to have you stanning more artists than you have room on your plate!
So, load up on the bonbons, sit back with your noise-canceling headphones. These sweets are coming at you hard and fast and you don’t need any distractions.
Little Hurt — ‘Better Drugs’
‘Better Drugs’ is about to become our favorite song! It’s got a catchy beat that has a little bit of retro sound to it, and the lyrics are so raw and relatable that the song is sure to end up on everyone’s daily playlists. Little Hurt is most definitely doing something right with this track and we are lying in wait for what’s coming next!
HARLOE — ‘Crush On You’
‘Crush On You’ is the perfect song to play this Valentines Day! Right in time for the special day, HARLOE has released an acoustic version of her most recent song. The song is soft but somehow still has hints of pop in it. The music video also shifts from her her magnificent pop sound visuals and takes us on a sensual path.
RIOTRON — ‘There For You’
Riotron is onto something here! ‘There For You’ is electronic and pop combined with instrumental guitar sounds. The Lyric video for the song looks to be heavily influenced by the 80’s with the pink and purple coloring to the splatter paint detailing. We honestly just can’t get enough of Riotron!
ALKE — ‘Gemini’
ALKEs new song ‘Gemini,’ throws us right back into the 80s and we are so here for it. The song starts out with electronic keyboard sounds and continues throughout. ALKE has the smoothest voice that carries us to the end of the song and of course on to the repeat button. We can’t wait to see what else ALKE has coming out in the future!
Tafari Anthony — ‘Centerfold’
We have all had a moment where we wanted to tell off someone who has done us wrong. Tafari Anthony is no exception. Thats exactly what he does in ‘Centerfold.’ The jazzy pop mixture is the perfect way to deliver the message that a toxic ex is so not worth it! Not to mention the lyrics are everything we have ever wanted to scream off of a roof top. We are right here with you Tafari, let us sing it with you!
Michigan Rattlers — ‘Desert Heat’
Michigan Rattlers’ new song “Desert Heat” feels like it belongs in a coming-of-age road trip movie, and we mean that as the best kind of compliment. With an upbeat tempo and soulful lyrics, it’s the perfect combination of rock-n-roll meets country music. Check it out for yourself!
Desert Sessions — ‘If You Run’
Immediately we feel those Janis Joplin vibes, a little desert wandering and loneliness for your taste buds. Like the title and music video suggests, ‘If You Run’ it will bring you to a haze of people and losing yourself. Having a plan and goal in mind leads to fulfillment. Wise words. This haunting song will keep you company if you’re ever feeling lost or need your gypsy soul soothed.
Jamie-Lee Dimes — ‘Release Me’
Wanting. Hurt. The beauty of nature. All these things can be found in ‘Release Me’. Sad guitar strums reach out to pull your heart strings. We felt like digging deep and searching our souls for the words to say because words just don’t do this song justice. The meaning of this is three fold: the lyrics, the video, and the message. Give it a listen and you’ll feel it too.
Penny Betts — ‘Lights’
‘Lights’ is a super catchy but very laid back song. Its the type of song you could relax to, but also maybe slow dance to as well. Penny Betts has a very unique vocal and this song really showcases that, It is a perfect mixture of Indie-pop and 60s style songwriting. You’ll be mesmerized by this track, and we cannot wait to hear more from these guys.
How’s that for a sugar high? With a list like that, can life get any sweeter? We think not.
