No Serial Killer – ‘We Are All Going To Die’
We are all dying for this song, that’s for sure! ‘We are all going to die’ has a fun, happy beat right off the bat. Despite the lyrics continually reminding us roughly our impending death, the song makes us want to sit in a little 80’s diner sipping milkshakes with two straws. The piano keeps the sweet uplifting harmony while the electric guitar comes into giving us a whiff of the rock and roll that we all crave! No Serial Killer has given us the best of both worlds!
Olive Louise – ‘Bad Things’
Anxiety overtaking, it feels like everything is wrong, and nothing is right. Your mind is racing, running to some conclusion that might not be all logical. ‘Bad Things’ personification of a child’s innocent mind trying to digest and control their racing heart. Like a mantra “In with the good thoughts, Out with the bad thoughts, Thank you for your money” because when you’re a child or don’t feel like you’re getting the help, you need therapy can contact entirely useless. An exploration of the mind and soul with anxiety, one take away is you’re not alone.
Chords of Eve – ‘Brightside’
‘Brightside’ introduces us to the funky techno side of music. We are invited to get up and dance with the carefree, joyous sound the song gives us. What called to us the most is the use of the piano and the silky smooth lyrics. Chords of Eve are genuinely ahead of their time with this fantastic futuristic bop. We can’t wait to hear the next single from Chords of Eve’ The Future’s Not What It Used To Be.’
Evie Irie – ‘Over Him’
A self-love anthem! ‘Over Him’ lets us explore the ropes of self-love. If you aren’t sure how to get there, Evie Irie is here to help you along the way! The song is the perfect mixture of pop and alternative sounds. At just 17, her lyrics are the conversation that needs to be had after a relationship. It’s like the classic song to accompany a coming of age movie! This Aussie teen has it down pat.
Jeffrey James – East London EP
‘Downtown’ and ‘Slow Right Down’ are two singles that set the tone for Jefferey James EP East London. With a voice reminiscent of X Ambassadors, we are transported. The EP is an ode to all the best parts and insecurities of a relationship. “Oh, it’s more than a moment in a photograph, And oh, it’s more than that joke that always makes you laugh” and “With every step, I’m finding
“You are, you are, you are worth more than your weight in gold.” to name a few lines that are searching for, describing, precisely what drove the feeling. Jeffrey James is not afraid to bare it all in pursuit of something more, reason in the unreasonable. From heartbreak to healing and acceptance.
Claud and Del Water Gap – ‘My Body’
The inseparable duo knows exactly how to push each others buttons in the best way! The pair used a heavy layer of auto-tune but we can’t help but love the sound! Not only was the song unique, so was the music video. It’s a mixture of simple and silly. The best combination! They include gifs and obvious inside jokes that we don’t get, but we love to watch the two friends laugh and make the most out of their music by just being he best of friends. Could we ask for more?
Declan J Donovan – ‘Fighting with Myself’
This upbeat tempoed song will have you up on your feet in seconds! Declan is showing a different side of his songwriting skills with ’Fighting with myself.’ While we love his heartfelt ballads from his recently released EP, this song hits the spot after sitting in our feels. We can guarantee that you’ll be adding this bop to your daily playlist!
Max Leone – ‘Cautious’
Overly cautious and isolated is the response to the fear of the unknown. To avoid being hurt, we shy away from the strange, the sick. Beautiful brightly lit shots liter the scenes. An idyllic and cozy home, but it’s empty. Max Leone’s music video for ‘Cautious’ paints a darker picture. Everything is picture-perfect, but if we listen to the lyrics, we can see a different story. “I got too much safety. I’ve been up for three weeks. Someone come and save me” beneath the surface there’s a sea of thoughts and emotions. He’s drowning yet too cautious about reaching out.
