STEELE – Know Her
Kicking off our weekly gems on International Women’s Day is dark pop project STEELE with ‘Know Her’.
Comprised of producers Charles Elmi, Dejan Sajinovic and Swedish vocalist/artist STEELE, the heavy and progressive sounds they create slot nicely alongside the likes of Monogem or Banks.
Listen to the sultry ‘Know Her’ below, which is taken from their forthcoming LP on Firegate Music.

Tiaryn – Falling
Tiaryn is an exciting Australian artist who is making waves this side of the world.
Her new single ‘Falling’ is the first single off an upcoming EP. It’s laid back and feel-good song that reflects on the evolution of a young relationship; from initial infatuation to the thrilling discovery of true connection.
Sounds like: VÉRITÉ, Jorja Smith, Caswell
Alexx Mack – Wine In Bed
A refreshing break appears to be just what Alexx Mack needed, because she is back with a song of epic proportions, and something that we all can relate to – ‘Wine In Bed’.
Inspired by her own toxic coping mechanisms, Alexx explains,
“Wine in Bed is about me learning that my coping methods were adding to the toxicity in my life and relationships. I would drink and cross my fingers to feel better, and almost every time I’d end up making another mistake. I thought that every sign was pointing to me needing to be alone, the truth was that I was pushing everything good in my life away.”

SAGE – Not Really
It’s a battle of the pop songs this week, that was until we heard ‘Not Really’ by SAGE. There really is no competition!
The feminist pop track has been produced by double-diamond producer PJ Bianco (Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony, ARIZONA) and written by SAGE alongside famously rumoured actual Britney Spears vocalist, Myah Marie Langston.
Sounds like: VÉRITÉ, Grimes, Billie Eilish, Britney Spears, Linney
Lucy Neville – Ransom
Young choir singer-turned songwriter Lucy Neville has hit us hard with her sweet vocals and striking lyrics on ‘Ransom’, a song about falling in lust and then in love.
Australian-born, you’d be forgiven for thinking Lucy was brought up in Nashville surrounded by country and pop, a true testament to her talent.
Sounds like: Kygo, Griffin
Y.A.S – VIBRATIONS
Scottish born “ethereal pop” artist Y.A.S is sending good ‘VIBRATIONS’ with her new single.
A Drake-style loop kicks off the track preparing us for Y.A.S’ rapturous vocals to kick in. A song about an incredibly rare connection so deep with someone that you can communicate without words.
Sounds like: Billie Eilish, Caswell, JONES, Raye, Jake Alder
