Cofresi + Megan Hamilton – ‘Patience’
Cofresi and Megan Hamilton have delivered us an amazing bop with ‘Patience.’ It’s a bass-heavy EDM track, and it’s going to be stuck in our heads all day. The lyrics sing of that feeling we all know, feeling like we’re falling short in a relationship. “I knew we had a special collaboration on our hands,” Cofresi had said about the track, and we couldn’t agree more! This is the collab we all needed in our lives but didn’t know until now.
Lil Xtra — ‘Hive’
In his new single ‘Hive,’ Lil Xtra sings of his feelings that no one wants him around, you can hear the frustration and pain in his voice. The lyrics are relatable for anyone who felt like no one wanted to be around them at some point in their life. One thing he knows about his songs is that they help him with his problems, so maybe giving this song a listen, you might find some comfort in his music like he does. “Music has helped me in so many ways in my darkest times. I’ve always wanted to share that experience with my music.”
Tyra Jutai — ‘Nudes’
Sensual goes hand and hand with jazz and smooth beats. This tune will have you feeling yourself and in your feels. Singing of heartbreak and at the centerpiece one of the most vulnerable parts of a relationship ‘Nudes’ by Tyra Jutai is an emotional one. The chromatic notes at the beginning feel like a blissful climb before abruptly restarting. This perfectly encapsulates getting in relationship after relationship with none ever working out.
Louis The Child — ‘Every Color’ (With Foster The People)
New music and a tour, Could it get any better! Louis The Child is here with their song ‘Every Color’ which features Foster The People. This perfect song makes for an otherworldly experience as their vocals blend with and complement the instruments in a sonic wave of pleasureful sounds. Including stages lined up at Coachella, EDC Mexico, and Hangout Music Festival, this is a tour you’re not going to want to miss. Bringing good energy and calming waves, we are here for it!
Salt Ashes — Counting Crosses EP
Counting Crosses is the latest EP from UK based electro-pop artist Salt Ashes, and it oozes with dreamy, captivating energies. The title track has a beat that makes it impossible not to dance to and the chorus delivers a smooth, irresistible sound that’s worthy of a spot on your playlist. All four songs are full of on-point vocal tracks and rhythms to die for. Everything is fresh and unlike anything you’ve already heard. We challenge you to take it off of repeat.
Jenny JAM — ‘Better Than You’
Soul and Pop singer Jenny JAM has delivered a seriously strong effort with ‘Better Than You’ a song that narrates being trapped in a controlling abusive relationship, and finding that inner strength you need to walk away and find someone who deserves you! This song packs a punch both lyrically and melodically with its strong soul vibes. We cannot get enough of it!
Lola Young — ‘Pick Me Up’
‘Pick Me Up’ by Lola Young is the jazz and soul-infused pop track you should be listening to right now. The beyond powerful vocals alongside raw and honest lyrics are balanced perfectly to make a track that’s impossible to forget. The song is 3 minutes and 37 seconds of timeless sultry genre-bending music. If you’re craving more Lola Young hits, fear not, her EP Renaissance drops on April 7.
BADCHILD — Candy ft Ryan Chambers (TATB2 Soundtrack)
If you’ve heard this song, and been wanting to see the music video for the iconic ‘Candy’ by Bad Child, the wait is finally over! You may know the song from the Netflix movie To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, the psychedelic colors and club-like scene give us a taste of youth and sketchy decisions, just like the movie. The song is upbeat and thumps perfectly in your chest. The ultimate song to get down to and stand out from the crowd.
Emmett Kai — ‘Tiger Balm’
You’ve heard ‘Remember My Name’ and ‘High For Weeks’ now get ready for the third single by Emmett Kai ‘Tiger Balm’. Upbeat and fun, we find ourselves jamming in an old warehouse with Emmett to an old school walkman. The lyrics are somber, making for the perfect blend of opposites attract. It’s all up to you and your imagination, express yourself! Emmett does everything from playing guitar to dancing with ribbon. It’s whatever his heart desires in his little world and let’s not forget the performance on April 2nd in New York. The sky’s the limit, you can go as far as your imagination will take you and beyond if you want it.
Ali Gatie — ‘What If I Told You I Love You’
Neon lights, cool cars, and smooth vocal tracks sum up Ali Gatie. His new single ‘If I Told You That I Love You’ is no different. In the music video, we are transported to the possibilities of a blossoming relationship, teetering with vulnerability. Set at night time Ali Gatie is our star, entering a sweet 50s style diner after driving up in a slick black car. From there, we jump from date spot to date spot, a bowling alley, diner, and lookout point exploring what it means to be vulnerable to someone. If you want to see him live then be quick, grab your tickets here. They are nearly sold out!
How’s that for a sugar high? With a list like that, can life get any sweeter? We think not.
