We’re exactly like you; music helps us deal with daunting concerns like figuring out who we are and what our life’s purpose is every day. However, thanks to music, we are reminded that we are not alone in the most beautiful way. Today, our rising artists hold the microphone because there is no better way to get to know an artist than through a personal connection. Here are our top ten new EP releases from ten incredible musicians that you must hear!
The Hics — HARMINE
You need to know one thing about The Hics: they never disappoint us with their beautiful songs. The duo released their new EP Harmine on May 6, and believe us when we say we have been listening to this five songs length EP on loop ever since. The Hics definitely know how to make beautiful tunes about the realities of life, and in every song of Harmine, you’ll find a piece of yourself.
Stream Harmine here.
Saint Asonia — Introvert
Gather around, everyone. Hard rock band Saint Asonia has announced the date of their new EP and given us a fantastic sneak peek of it with a new single, ‘Above It All.’ Here at THP, we are always surprised by how COVID inspired so many artists, and Saint Asonia did a superb job making a song inspired by being stuck all by yourself and realizing how you actually want to live your life.
Introvert is out on June 1. Pre-order here.
Eloise Alterman — Sad Bird
After listening to Eloise Alterman’s songs about going through a heartbreak and how messy the healing process can be, we gotta admit that we were Sad Bees. From her new EP, Sad Bird, Eloise made us cry on the floor with ‘Her,’ but we forgive her. In the end, she gave us not only one but six songs that we can relate to.
Listen to Sad Bird here.
Paula Jivén — The Duality In Me
It might be tough to notice who you are as you grow up, especially if you still have a few chapters open from your past. But don’t worry, because you are not alone and Paula Jivén understands you. Her new EP, The Duality In Me, talks about how it’s okay to be a different person throughout your life as you are trying to find yourself.
Listen to The Duality In Me here.
Cody Frost — TEETH
Cody Frost is here to make us face the harsh realities of the world order with their fantastic lyricism, and she does it in the most beautiful way possible. From her new mixtape TEETH, Cody gives us a song, ‘REDUNDANT,’ that we can scream along to, about how shallow people are and how annoying it is.
Listen to TEETH here.
MYRNE — The Circles
The Circles by MYRNE is another EP about one’s journey throughout life, and he nailed it. MYRNE himself wrote all four tracks of the EP as he showed us how to find the light even in our darkest times, with beautiful lyrics. The title track of the EP, ‘Emotion,’ is proof that MYRNE’s artistic talent is definitely something to look forward to.

The Juliana Theory — Still The Same Kids Pt. 1
If you’ve heard of The Juliana Theory, you’re probably as excited as we are about their new EP, Still The Same Kids Pt.1. However, if you haven’t heard of them, we’ll go with the “better late than never” approach. Beautiful lyrics with a warm vibe. This is what we exactly needed this spring.
Listen to Still The Same Kids Pt.1 here.
Sofía Valdés — In Bloom
If you’re wondering what we’ll be listening to at the beach while enjoying the brilliant sun and mild air, the answer is Sofia Valdés’ In Bloom EP. The title track ‘In Bloom,’ is about becoming your own ideal person and not needing anyone else, and we love it.
Here’s In Bloom for your ears.
Beka — Your Skin
BEKA’s Your Skin EP is another empowering EP that deserves to be explored. Your Skin honors all types of people, regardless of their appearance or origins. We can tell how personal this EP is for BEKA when we listen to it, and we appreciate her for it because it reminds us that we are not alone in our insecurities. We look great in our skin, just like she said.
