“Here are some favorites over the last couple months including songs from favorite albums this year: SZA, Phoebe Bridgers, YOUTH, Lorde and Wolf Alice. Also I put a few singles from female pop artists I love and respect! To be enjoyed while driving at night, at low key parties, showering or anywhere you might sing really loud alone. 🙂”

Rock musicians-turned electronic producers Polarbearz share ‘Recognize’. Despite being located in the distant Lapland and writing a song about being different, the duo have managed to create music that sounds so on point.
Meet Australia’s finest new musical export, Tigertown.
Tigertown’s new track ‘Warriors’ manages to reach new euphoric heights. Much like glitter itself, it brightens up and idealises the concept of love, but who cares as everyone loves glitter and love, right?!
The track is out today on Neon Gold and they will be touring with Tove Lo in July and VÉRITÉ in August and September.
Sounds like: Of Monsters and Men, Passion Pit, The Naked and Famous, Tove Lo, St. Lucia, Crystal Fighters
Not only does alxxa have a degree in physics, she also appears to have a pretty good grasp on how the musical universe works.
Her new track ‘Hung Up’ is bang on point, with relatable lyrics that gently flow over soft keys and alxxa’s smooth vocals.
“Hung Up’ is a very special song for me,” shares alxxa. “It was the first song I wrote when I moved to Los Angeles…alone, sitting at the piano, all in about an hour or so. It was a combination of shitty relationships, bad habits, nasty injuries, toxic work environments, poor self-image…you name it. Realizing I needed a change, I packed my things and drove across the country. The week long drive cleared my head and released a lot of the negative energy I had been harboring for a long time. This song describes the toxic cycle I was living in, at war with my surroundings and with myself.”
