Jennie Harluk – ‘The Fool’
“In your passenger seat, didn’t wanna believe/All the rumours were true and it burns like Hennessy,” Jennie Harluk’s ‘The Fool’ bridge comes around in pop-country fusion. How are you able to love someone who can’t treat you right? The strong loving feeling makes us so blind that we are now ‘The Fool.’ With emotional twists as her Canadian fellow artist Lennon Stella, she brightens with all the deep emotions and her thrilling falsettos. In the elegant video shot by Isabella Morton, Jenny Harluk comes face to face with reality. We all know that we melt when someone we love brings flower bouquets but is this the reason we should forgive it all? Our The Bees Knees program this week fell in love with her velvety Griff-infused voice. She’s absolutely smashing it with her fairy notes. Don’t be ‘The Fool’ and stream the song here!

Grace Carter – ‘Dark Matter’
The family ties us up! Sometimes, it’s not as easy as it seems though. The Bees Knees program tips Grace Carter’s ‘Dark Matter’ this week. “This is just a letter I could write so much that my fingers they start bleeding/When I think of all you’ve done it’s so hard to be honest, hard to be honest,” she croons to her absent dad. We have to learn to let go of these people who are never close to us and rely on our thoughts. She penned a powerful and soulful deeply emotional track and we can’t thank her enough. Inspired by Adele‘s soothing voice, Grace Carter’s cutting-edge melodies hypnotize us. With powerful words, we surf on surreal jazzy tones that make us feel better. Stream ‘Dark Matter’ here.
Caroline Romano – ‘Ireland In 2009’
Ready for a cinematic flight? Caroline Romano drops a Cherrybomb and has penned this wonderful pop single lately. Inspired by the Rupert Grint-starring movie (hello Potterheads!), she penned ‘Ireland In 2009,’ landing in Belfast through superb melodies. “Look at you asleep on the floor/By the mattress in the middle of the door/I just woke up from an all-night war/In my school clothes from the day before,” she lulls with a crystal clear voice. Love is free, innocent and pure! The inspiration of Oh Wonder‘s cute guitars keeps us entertained with her piece of art. Caroline Romano showcases the different faces of love, from rivalries to free-spirited feelings on ‘Ireland In 2009.’ We can’t get enough of the blissful guitar strings mixed with the angsty drums. Book your trip to Ireland here!
Elle L – ‘Higher’
Do you need some challenge right now? The Bees Knees program recommends electro-pop ascending artist Elle L. The London-based singer blends euphoric electro elements around uplifting rhymes. “Together we can go a little higher,” she repeats on later single ‘Higher’ and this stays in our minds forever. Her lovely voice and harmonies please every Stan of Little Mix in us. The stellar guitars give us all the strength to overcome all the fears that burn inside. Her vocals, soft like chocolate, remind us of Jessie Ware and the soul queens we had in the past. No matter what happens, we should take risks and keep it with a positive twist. The visuals from Jack Zhang, who previously directed Dua Lipa and Elton John’s cartoon video ‘Cold Heart,’ bring us through a world full of magic. Don’t be afraid to reach new heights! Stream Elle L’s ‘Higher’ here.
