THRILL YOU KILL YOU – ‘Hotline’
Rhythm is in the blood of the artist and producer THRILL YOU KILL YOU. On ‘Hotline,’ the retro influences from the late eighties clashes with the electro modern pop.

They can feed themselves with our strengths and weaknesses, but we’re all still hooked on them. “Hotline to my heart/Straight shot to my mind/Hotline to my heart/It’s like you’re making me blind/Hotline to my heart,” singer and producer Fei-Fei blast in our headphones like a spell.

Summer is still here for The Bees Knees with the palm trees and hot sun! On the radar band, Bad Sounds teamed up with Ruti on the new smashing track ‘You Moved Backwards.’ The Bristol band’s vibrant melodies seize us in between pop, 90s baggy, and steamy electro beats. Fans of Waterparks or Sea Girls will be attracted to the light and heartfelt lyrics. The mood booster instrumentation is a big thumbs up for us too!
Creative and groovy in a Gorillaz-like tempo, Bad Sounds and Ruti merge perfectly together in harmony. “It’s a different time/And you can’t change your mind/That’s right,” Bad Sounds comfort us with their unique falsettos. Things evolve and we need to follow the waves. Sometimes we can be afraid and we freeze to the new realities. The song translates our thoughts into beautiful beats.

Dylan – ‘Nineteen’
Drop everything and escape in the magic soundscape of new artist Dylan on The Bees Knees. “Do you remember my blue dress, hot mess/Coffee and the cigarettes/The late calls, bar crawls/Drinking so that we forget,” the young British singer croons on her latest hit ‘Nineteen.’ If you like crystal voices and breezy tracks, this song hints the nostalgia of being young and innocent.
As Ashe would say there is no ‘Moral Of The Story’ and being ‘Nineteen’ is a wonderful phase of freedom and fun, along with the heartbreaks and fond memories. The singer-songwriter twirls her new song with pop finesse. She brings carefree electronic bops and gives a voice to the young generation.

Abby Jasmine – ‘SOS’
Do you miss Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman era? Abby Jasmine new track ‘SOS’ introduced us to similar wholehearted beats. The fusion of melodic pop and R’n’B put us in such a trance. The track from this rising artist from Staten Island is on repeat. She opens the track with a metaphoric image of drowning. “I know I got something that’s real with you/I get tired of savin’ you, I ain’t no Superhuman, I need savin’, too/Every time I try to lay with you,” she cries with her Disney princess inspired-tones. We are not invincible as humans. Sometimes, we are so obsessed with our relationships that it’s hard to let go.

Brooke Eden – ‘Got No Choice (Dave Audé Remix)’
These boots are made for Brooke Eden. The queer country rising star ‘Got No Choice’ to entertain us at The Bees Knees!

Through her tough times, she now got the confidence to live freely as herself and having control over what she needs. Sometimes we ‘Got No Choice,’ but if we sacrifice and work on our minds, we’ll boost our energy to think with optimism. “Hearing gossip from my neighbors/We don’t fit on paper/From the bars to the church crowd/We’re the talk of the whole town,” she opens up on the second verse.
Brooke is now proud of her love for her new fiancée and encourages others to spread the LGBTQ+ love message and not be afraid of judgment from others.
