The new double single ‘Keep On / Silence‘ is the second release of the new collaborative project of Dario Lessing and Rezar.
The two tracks showcase the musical range of their upcoming ‘Better Days‘ EP.
While ‘Keep On‘ is one of the more straight forward tunes of the record with catchy melodies and even an uplifting, subtle raggaeton rhythm carrying the beautiful piano parts. ‘Silence‘ is a more fragmentary, atmospheric and takes you on a musical journey with airy drums and abstract vocals.
Swedish artist and producer Elina Eriksson sings about her own experiences within a long-term relationship on self-written and produced new single ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Mad at You‘.
The follow up to her debut ‘Discover Her‘, is a heartfelt song which explores challenges and struggles that can appear in a relationship with someone. Part scandi-pop, part modern r’n’b: this is a delicious comeback single you shouldn’t miss.
Speaking about the song, she explains: ”You have so much love for that person and the last thing you want is to be mad at that someone, that means the most to you. But certain things keep occurring and sometimes it’s inevitable not to fight. It will either bring you closer or it will take a toll on the relationship and might ruin what was so good about it, in the first place”.

Written in four different places as two of the band members were sofa surfing, Bristol-based outfit Tungz shares their latest single, ‘Go Out’ focuses on anxiety caused by overexertion and bad
Platinum-Certified singer-songwriter Jeremy Zucker shares catchy pop single ‘supercuts’. Named after the hair chopping salon, it’s feel-good summertime anthem co-written and co-produced by Jeremy and Max Martin’s MXM camp in Stockholm.
White Lights shares ‘Body Trap’, the lead single from his forthcoming ‘NUMBSKULL’ album. With its dark underbelly, the R&B track borders into the realms of hip hop and emotionally-withdrawn electronica.
Amy Milner shares a tale of inner conflict in her new single, ‘Closer’. Written alongside producer Tim Larcombe (Lana Del Rey, Halsey) between Amy’s home in Suffolk and Tim’s studio in Brighton, “Closer” is the second single from her new EP ‘Big Bad Thoughts’ due later this year.
If you’re looking for some fresh, sun-kissed lo-fi vibes, you’re in the right place.
‘Caroline’, brand-new single from Belgian outfit Great Mountain Fire is a colourful and refreshing indie-pop gem. The murmured singing of Thomas de Hemptinne, languid and nostalgic, unfolds quietly on a neutral and straight tempo that invites waking dreams and urban wandering.
There’s a curious story behind the song. Caroline, in fact, is a well-known, almost legendary figure of the streets of Brussels, an allegorical figure of the city, free, happy and sad at the same time.
‘Caroline’ is taken from Great Mountain Fire’s ‘Movements‘ LP – which will be released later this year.
Dynamic duo Temptress hit us with their second single of the year, called ‘Baby Blue’.
The London groups RnB infused dark pop vibe is everpresent, with jazzy vocal influences and smooth synth work, the duos latest offering is one of their best yet.
Speaking about their new single, they say;
“‘Baby Blue’ is about acknowledging your sadness, after suffering from anxiety for so many years. This is a way of opening up about the struggles I’ve had and reflecting on my past that lead me to where I am now. It’s about saying I need help and I’m ready to move forward, it’s okay to be sad and how talking openly can help you come to terms with those thoughts and feelings.”
Meet Vancouver-based three-piece daysormay comprised of twin brothers Carson and Nolan Bassett and Aidan Andrews. Their name is taken from the English phonetic of the French word “désormais,” meaning “from now on”.
They’ve put together a playlist for us, check it out below.
Charli XCX – enemy
Carson: The chords and the melody along with the production of this song really all work
together to elevate each other, one of our favourites right now. It was so mind-blowing to hear
that this whole album was made in a month.
Ricky Reed, Terrace Martin, St. Panther – Real Magic
Carson: This song just brings the mood from wherever it is to a happier place, a feel-good song.
Toro y Moi – Lissoms (Instrumental)
Nolan: Love how this song is chill but manages to still make you groove. Even though this song
is 10 years old, it still feels fresh.
Mk.gee – Isn’t It So Convenient
Nolan: The drums on this song sound SO good. It’s just full of really cool and organic sounds
and I love how straight up and honest the lyrics are.
Grady – Let’s Stay Inside
Carson: The beat switch at the end is legendary.
Post-Modern Connection – Drowning
Carson: Glad to call these guys our friends, from just outside our hometown. Great chords,
beautiful vocals and keeps you interested all the way through.
Gia Ford – Waterslide
Nolan: So funky and kind of sinister-sounding at the same time. Whoever played bass on this
song killed it.
HAIM – 3AM
Nolan: The chords are SO good and the chorus bangs. Rostam is also one of my favourite
producers at the moment so I was stoked to find out he worked on this album.
CHIKA – DESIGNER
Nolan: It drops in hard and not in a way you would expect and I love how this song just plays
with your expectations the whole time. CHIKA also has such a good voice.
The 1975 – I Like America & America Likes Me
Aidan: The 1975 helped me realize that you could be in a band and not make “band music”.
Realizing that I could make a song with whatever sounds I wanted, that it didn’t have to be
based around guitar, drums, bass, typical “band instruments”, that was a big deal for me. I love
how they used the hard autotune in this, and the production and lyrics are so good.
Baby Keem – MOSHPIT
Aidan: A legend. I’m always drawn towards artists that have a unique vocal style/delivery, and
almost every line of a Baby Keem song is quotable. So good.
Charli XCX – claws
Aidan: this song’s been in my head for weeks now. Charli is so cool, and I’ve been trying to find
the snare sample Dylan Brady used on this ever since I heard it. It’s currently my favourite
