Lesse is back with their third feat of stylistically rhythmic Pop with their third single “Break Out”

The unheralded king of contemporary rhythmic Pop has returned with their third radio-ready hit “Break Out”.

If you thought that the drums in Phil Collin’s iconic tracks were something, you’re going to quickly become enamoured by the stylistically modern atmospheric Pop.

The tribal drum beats join an eclectic mix of acoustic instruments and electronic effects to create a sublime feat of uplifting, momentously energetic yet concordantly melodious Pop. We got a taste of Lesse’s flawlessly nuanced vocals in their former singles “The Ghost” and “Drive Away”, but with Break Out, they’ve proven themselves to be so much more than an artist in possession of dynamic vocals.

If they aren’t already on your radar, there’s no time like the present.

Calumet serve a generous amount of soul with their Southern Blues single “Break Down on Me”

“Break Down on Me” is the latest single from up and coming Funk powerhouse Calumet, for this track, they’ve dialled down the Funk and allowed Soul and Blues to take its place, and we’re certainly not disappointed.

In a nutshell, Break Down on Me is a pure offering of catharsis. The infusion of warm vintage tonality makes Calumet’s latest single accessible right from the first verse as the shimmering ethereal nature reveals its arrestive potential. As you can probably guess from the title name, Calumet didn’t leave lyrical evocative appeal out of the mix. So, if you can draw your attention away from the mesmeric layers of Blues and Southern Soul, you’ll get to appreciate the honeyed candidness of Break Down on Me which alludes to how hard it can be to watch someone you love fall apart.

You can check out Calumet’s latest single Break Down on Me for yourselves by heading over to their official website where you will also be able to buy their album.

Flocci – LIMIT BREAK: A Filthy Aural Attack of EDM That’s All About the Bass

Slapping a genre label on up and coming Houston, US-based artist Flocci’s latest single LIMIT BREAK would be completely redundant. To create the filthy aural masterpiece, he incorporated a smorgasbord of bass-heavy EDM styles with an urban edge to create a soundscape that probably won’t be for you if you don’t appreciate harsh high octane beats. But if you love nothing more than hearing dubbed drops weaved into a fast-paced Hardstyle track full of ominous undertones, it won’t be long until you turn to Flocci by default when you’re looking for an attack of harsh snaring electronica. LIMIT BREAK mainly runs through as an instrumental track, yet there are still some Rap-style vocal offerings, and an infinitely endearing addition of a Mario Kart sample.

NIXY – In n out: an intimate atmosphere

In an intimate atmosphere made of downtempo slow beats, In n out is the latest effort by up and coming artist NIXY.

Coming in at only 2:13, In n out is an enticing flow of delicate R&B opening through melodic piano synths and synth bass sounds that don’t flood the harmonic structure and let the vocals take over, proving the artist’s skilful approach to singing.

NIXY passionately sings about the ambiguity of an on and off relationship where one is let painfully hanging from a thin thread that’s about to break at the slightest tension. Such intense lyrics combined with a deep harmonic vibe come about as a pop-y appeal to soulful music able to transmit a satisfying mood despite the sensitive topic.

You can check out In n out for yourself on Spotify.

Amelita is here with ‘’A Quarantine Breakup Song’’ featuring Sims, tears and aliens

It had to come. A quarantine breakup song in 2020. Something was missing from the music scene and we have the answer. The US teen Pop artist is feeling pain and her ex is deservedly the literal punching bag on this occasion. Oh wait, it’s a naughty parody. Nevermind. 

Self described as a ‘’Comedic musician and avid sleep enthusiast’’, I would love to meet ‘Amelita’. She doesn’t take herself too seriously and is definitely creating a niche for herself. 

‘Amelita’ loves her Parody videos on YouTube and seems to be gaining more and more steam after each release. The mix of a Sims video game and music is quite fascinating. Making babies with an alien is just an extra treat too. Something about werewolves too. You get the idea.

Let’s see what this comedian musician has next up her sleeve as she certainly entertains. 

Stream more from Amelita here on her YouTube channel.

Liverpool Popstar Sam George gets the dancefloors ready with sweaty with sexy ‘’Think About You’’

‘Sam George’ is a well established solo artist who is surely going to blow up in 2021. With a seductive voice and dance-laden music that just wants to be enjoyed. Based in the heart of the music capital, Liverpool in England, surely this is Sam’s moment to break out. The follow up to 2019’s popular ‘’Over the Sunrise’’, this is a solo artist with all the right moves.

Adding Indian flutes and with fellow Liverpool based producer Kova (Reece Cairns) on his team, this is a powerful combo that is working. This is fresh and shaven Pop with sexy lyrics. A true dance floor slider, the clubs will be full of Sam’s music when this lockdown finally passes and we can all enjoy being free again. 

‘Sam George’s face is going to be plastered all over billboards very soon and we should take note. He is part of a new wave of artists with a positive message and for that, we need to raise a glass and get involved. If Justin Timberlake ever needs an opening act while in the UK, he should call up Sam and make it happen.

90s Reggae Soul Pop lives again through breaking artist Jindi’s single “Midnight Love”

Reggae Soul artist Jindi encapsulated the smoothly romantic 90s Reggae Pop vibe with the standout single “Midnight Love” from their EP “1995”.

Along with the unfiltered romanticism and funk-riddled rhythms, you can expect a flood of nostalgia to hit and allow you to reminisce over amorous sun-soaked memories. Any form of escapism is more than welcome these days, and escapism doesn’t come much sweeter than what the warm tones in Midnight Love have to offer.

There may be elements from decades past within Midnight Love, but with the artist’s uniquely evocative appeal and fresh approach to production, their earworm more than deserves a spot on international radio waves.

You can check out Jindi’s single Midnight Love along with the rest of the EP for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

London’s The Curious fly sky high with daydreaming single about love: ‘’Always Want More’’

Even if you go, even if you know, I always want more. Wanting more from those special moments is always a tempting notion. It’s always tough to accept that you should enjoy what you get and nothing more. 

‘The Curious’ are a 4 Piece ALT Indie band from London on the rise with their positive lyrics and terrifically produced music- this is a professional outfit. 

You can see the band are influenced by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Marr, Blink 182, Arctic Monkeys and more. Their music is pure and likeable. Known for 2017’s breakout hit ‘’City Lights’’, the band are in top form here.

‘’Always Want More’’ is the follow up to March 2020’s fiery ‘’My Only’’- a song that gained some good traction in the UK. Let’s see how the band develops and they must be hungry to be on stage again, let it rip and show everyone what they are made out of.

Orlando Indie Pop/Soul band G.W. Souther bust out new track ‘’We Don’t Wanna Talk About It’’

Known for their breakout reggae infused debut song ‘’”Freedom on the Line” from 2016, G.W Souther are back with ’We Don’t Wanna Talk About It’’. It’s a solid song, with all the right moves and top musicianship. This is the final song on their new ‘’F I S H’’ album from 2020.

After working with Christina Milian, G Eazy, Jeremih, and Snoop Dogg lately, this band is growing each day and are making quite a name for themselves with festival appearances in the US. 

I do feel like they should go back to their reggae roots but totally understand the change of direction on new album ‘’F I S H’’. Each band must evolve but I do prefer the earlier releases from ‘’Freedom On The Line’’. They had a special groove going that I miss.

Look out for more quality music from G.W. Souther, a band who seem like good guys that just want to make good music and entertain. They have soul and make people happy, the whole point of music in the first place.
