The new music releases this week are stacked and the best part is, they’re taking us all around the globe! Music is truly universal and these artists are here to prove it. We’ve got music from Iceland, Norway, France, and even all the way down in Australia.
So pack your suitcase, don’t forget to grab your passport, and get those headphones on as we set off on a worldwide musical adventure!
We’re kicking off our tour of the world in Iceland, where rising electro-pop star Heidrunna just released her debut album Melodramatic.
The album opens with ethereal ‘Borderline’ and takes us on a journey through heartbreak and love with a little 80s flair and modern electro-pop vibrance. ‘Daydreamer’ is another highlight––a sunny track with the perfect vibe for spring and summer, along with the catchy ‘Cindy.’ Heidrunna takes inspiration from artists like Beach House, Lykke Li, Blondie, and The Weeknd, and we can totally hear it!

Next, we’re heading across the pond to France, where Eugénie is taking the pop world by storm.
Eugénie’s sultry new single ‘4D’ combines the glitchy and hypnotizing sounds of hyperpop with a bedroom pop vibe and alt sparkle. The song is candy for our ears and the video is so cool we can’t get enough. We will definitely be keeping Eugénie on our radar and adding this one to all of our summer playlists ASAP!

Our first stop in Canada is with Toronto-based Jade Hilton, who just released her debut album Unrequited!
The album features the single ‘Not My Type,’ a catchy track about a casual relationship.
The album also features stunners like ‘Evelyn,’ the heartfelt track where Hilton sings “tell me Evelyn / did you ever learn to be loved?” as well as the haunting ballad ‘Don’t Be Sad.’ Jade’s emotional, captivating vocals make this a must-listen album.

Next, we’ll pop over to Winnipeg, where duo Mise en Scene are reminding us all to be a little ‘Nicer’ with their brand new single!
As if the song itself wasn’t brilliant enough, the video features the duo’s adorable puppies playing on Lake Winnipeg! The duo’s unique brand of sunny alt-rock is perfectly encapsulated by this song, and is a great alt-rock tune for summertime!

Get your plane gear ready because we’re taking the next flight to Nottingham to catch up with Gemma Danielle and her new single ‘Hearts Devotion!’
The singer-songwriter leaves her heart on the page with poetic, raw lyrics in this ballad, which shares the same name as her debut EP. Featuring composer Jessica Roch, this ballad is one of those songs you turn up when you need a good cry, and we love that.
We can’t wait to dive further into her EP! Stream it here!
Now let’s hop on a train to Brighton and watch the vintage-tinged new music video from Matt Taylor for ‘April 13th.’
Matt’s mesmerizing falsetto vocals drew us right in. His heartfelt delivery makes ‘April 13th’ the kind of song that settles right in your heart. One of our favorite parts is the cathartic, poetic bridge that ties the song together! Matt’s lyricism and vulnerability are super impressive, and this is the ultimate heartbreak anthem.
Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Matt draws inspiration from powerhouses like SOPHIE, Taylor Swift, and Lorde, and that influence most definitely shines through, with his unique charm sprinkled on top. You don’t wanna miss this one!
In Brooklyn, New York, where art bursts around every corner, there is Middle Part, an artist on the precipice of releasing their new single ‘Harley’ on April 26th, 2022. They say it’s a song that captures “a tortured artist daydreaming about a simple and complacent life.”
The track appears on their forthcoming sophomore EP Time Is Elastic, and is a confessional track that explores art and music and meaning in a world of commercialism and social media. ‘Harley’ shines with sincerity and heart with honest lyrics like “Feels like I’m losing it / I cry at the happy sh*t / where has my mind been at / I just wanna get high and slide out.”
Keep this one on your radar, because we can totally see Middle Part blowing up with their vulnerability and artistic mind!
Pre-save ‘Harley’ here!
Rising Norwegian sensation SKAAR is here with a new video for her single ‘Get Him Away From Me!’
In the music video, SKAAR’s troubles spiral as things keep going wrong until she eventually runs away from her problems. The video mirrors the song’s lyrics and message about facing your problems rather than running away, and we love the storytelling going on in both versions!
This alt-pop superstar is a force to be reckoned with because of her incredible artistic versatility. Her previous songs have been synced worldwide and her song ‘Higher Ground’ will soon be featured in an international Lancôme campaign!

Ahead of their debut album Now And Then, ‘Bed Song’ gives us a taste of what to expect from this highly anticipated May release! The juxtaposition of Eliza’s smooth vocals and alt-rock guitar and drums creates a brand new vibe all their own.
Eliza & The Delusionals are an indie and alt-rock inspired band that you definitely need on your playlists right now! The Australian group brings honest songwriting to infectious hooks with alternative flavor and we all need a little rock’n’roll in our lives.
