On any given day, there are bound to be hundreds, or even thousands, of songs, released. And with 365 – or 366, if the universe is feeling spicy – days in a year, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed by what’s buzzing in the music scene! But don’t worry, honeybees, you know we’ve got you.
So let’s get to know six rising artists and take a look at their recent projects! We’re so impressed by them. This was pretty much our reaction to our first listens…
Want a little dose of escapism? Allegra Jordyn is your girl! Her latest single, ‘Dreamstate,’ is simply ethereal, and so are her vocals. It merges electropop with dream pop, and the results are absolutely stunning. The lyrics talk about feeling out of place in the real world and wishing you could live in a dream, which we can all relate to at some point. Right now, our dream is for Allegra to reach that Main Pop Girl status she deserves!
A big THP congratulations goes out to Chad Tepper, who just signed with Epitaph Records! And he’s already making a statement with his Epitaph debut, the total jam that is ‘don’t wanna die.’ It’s such a cool merging of pop, rock, and hip-hop that’s perfect for your summer playlist. If you love artists like MOD SUN and SK8, Chad is the one for you.
Every day, people wake up and feel like it’s the end of the world – and truth be told even if it was I feel like we need to enjoy every moment and not care so much about the little things. I wanted to tell everyone in a song what I’d be doing if it was the end of the world.
Is there any rising artist out there who wouldn’t freak out over the chance to open for Harry Styles on tour? For Madison Cunningham, that was a reality, and her new single ‘Hospital’ proves exactly why she deserved it. It’s a thoughtful exploration of how the 24-hour news cycle and the internet-heavy atmosphere during the pandemic have affected us all. After one listen, you’ll be super hyped for her Revealer album, due this fall!
‘Hospital’ is written from this sort of half awake, slightly drunken, on the cusp of a nervous breakdown perspective. I think ultimately it speaks to the impossible condition of being sedated with information and trying to hold onto your sanity.
No matter how you spin it, Nicolle Galyon is a total ‘winner.’ She has a way with words that really sends us to another world, and her single ‘winner.’ feels like an entire memoir packed into three mystical minutes. She gives us Maren Morris vibes in the best way, yet still stands apart thanks to her unique perspective and soothing voice. She’s redefining what it means to be a winner on her own terms!
Everything that is born must be given a name and mine is ironic. I’ve spent my life jumping from one achievement to the next only to look back and recognize that I was actually born in Winner (South Dakota). And I felt it was finally time to redefine what success looked like for me.
Honeybees, Unusual Demont was the perfect artist name for this incredible LA-based artist, because his music stands out as something unusual and unlike anything we’ve heard before! He’s bringing us into the summer season with the absolute bop that is ‘Maybe Not,’ an upbeat track about accepting that a relationship might not last forever, but still enjoying your time in the moment. It sounds just like a sunny day at the pool feels!
Timing is everything, especially with change, and ‘Maybe Not’ is the perfect preparation/transition into the new world I’m inviting you into with my next releases. A world that feels like your favorite summer memory all the time. I hope you enjoy this invitation.
We’re sad to say we’ve reached the end of our list, but we’re beyond excited to introduce you to the genius that is 12AM! He’s taking us on a trip to ‘Hollywood’ with his latest single, which touches on the pressures of being an artist in the modern world. John Feldmann – who has worked with the likes of 5 Seconds of Summer and Avril Lavigne – produced this one, so you already know it’s a masterpiece. So whether it’s midnight or noon, we’ll be jamming out to 12AM.
This is the realest song I have ever written, it’s me being honest about my mental health and the depression that came with living in LA… LA almost killed me.
