Liverpool-Based Alt Pop Artist Sam George Releases Their Latest Single “Follow You”

Liverpool-based Pop singer-songwriter Sam George has recently released their latest smoothly rhythmic Pop single “Follow You”. Anyone looking for a fresh hit of soulfully mesmeric Pop should follow suit and join me in becoming enamoured by the release.

With an eclectic instrumental arrangement (including the Indian flute), and an even more eclectic array of genres found in Follow You, Sam George has stamped down their pioneeringly contemporary style with their latest release and proven themselves to be an up and coming talent worth investing in.

Instead of the usual plasticised Pop sound, Sam George’s latest single effortlessly exudes an organically authentic aural experience. You may even find that Follow You becomes your next perennial Pop Earworm.

Hollie Findlay – Querencia: Soul-Soaked Contemporary Pop

Hollie Findlay’s latest single “Querencia” definitely doesn’t fail to hit the emotive sweet spot. Her unique take on Pop ballads has created a melodiously immersive soundscape to melt into.

The piano-led arrangement offers subtly jazzy elements of Neo-Soul while Hollie Findlay ensured that Querencia pulled together with plenty of magnetic contemporary appeal thanks to her soft and accessible vocals. The 16-year-old singer-songwriter has proven with this release that maturity in sound definitely doesn’t correlate with age.

It was highly perceptible that instead of creating Querencia as a testament to her talent, the primary objective was to create single which offers a potent amount of catharsis, and it’s safe to say that she was successful.

Colby Dean – Will I Go: Nostalgically Sweet Americana Indie Folk

https://colbydeanmusic.bandcamp.com/releases

Montana-based Indie artist Colby Dean released their debut self-titled EP on October 10th, 2019. Each of the singles unfolds as a nostalgically sweet offering of Americana Indie Folk. The best introduction to their sound is undoubtedly “Will I Go” which simultaneously unravels as an ethereally haunting and cathartically comforting single.

The Indie Folk single is sure to be of appeal to any fans of Nick Drake, Elliot Smith, and Leonard Cohen, as there is a touch of vintage tonality entwined with Colby Dean’s contemporary approach to the Alt-Country sound. Their naturally magnetic vocals and ability to spill plenty of imagery with their lyrics ensures that Will I Go is not a soundscape which is easily forgotten.

Regal Club – Spooky: Ominously Trippy Hip Hop

With a prelude carrying reminiscences to the American Horror Story title music, up and coming Hip Hop artist Regal Club’s latest single “Spooky” won’t fail to leave you hooked in the eerily experimental soundscape.

Mixing ominous wavy tones with solid Old School Hip Hop beats created a dark but accessibly familiar track which should be plenty of appeal to fans of Insane Clown Posse thanks to Regal Club’s authoritatively salacious Rap bars.

It was a daring move to create a track as dark as Spooky, but it definitely paid off for Regal Club; their ability to cook up arrestive authentic tracks definitely isn’t something that you hear every day.

Dead Swells – Be Here: Artfully Indulgent Psych Indie Rock

There may be plenty of Indie Rock artists reviving Psych under brand-new guises, but Columbia-based up and coming artist Dead Swells may have made it even more indulgently arrestive than ever before with their standout single “Be Here”.

Rather than just constructing your average wavy same three-chord progressions, you’re constantly treated to artful new increments of experimentalism as you follow the lucid melodies in Be Here.

With the sporadic additions of the dominant drum fills, the emotively captivating vocals and the kaleidoscopic guitar-driven Psychedelia which is thrown at you throughout the duration of Be Here, the soundscape comes highly recommended.

Be Here is a single I will undoubtedly return to time and time again, with every repeat listen of Be Here there’s more aural ingenuity to unpack in the hazily rich soundscape.

Rock n Roll Meets R&B Soul in Gracie Laboy’s Debut Single “Good Devil”

Up and coming R&B Soul artist Gracie Laboy has recently made their debut with the strikingly unmissable single “Good Devil”.

Right from the prelude, you’re hooked in this unique artist’s take on the genre. Good Devil reinvents R&B with a solid bluesy Jazz Rock instrumental arrangement which synergistically comes together to create the perfect platform for the powerfully sultry vocals. I don’t make Amy Winehouse comparisons lightly, but the vocals irrefutably share the same distinctive allure in Good Devil.

It’s going to be incredibly exciting to see where Gracie Laboy takes her resounding sound next after an incredibly promising debut which has given the evolution of Soul a brand-new trajectory.

Binoy – Things Fall Apart: Ominously Sultry Alt Pop

Following on from the success of their earlier released 2019 singles, Los Angeles Pop Singer-Songwriter Binoy has recently dropped his latest experimentally endearing Pop track “Things Fall Apart”.

With an eclectic instrumental arrangement and an even more un-archetypal array of different genre influences, it’s unlikely that you’ll have heard another soundscape quite like Things Fall Apart before.

With Rock Pop vocals and an ominous synth-led 80s inspired melody, Binoy has created a futuristically compelling single which allows you to soak up the accessibility of the familiar elements of sound under a brand-new stylistic contortion. I’m also ridiculously pleased that Binoy utilised their sax skills in Things Fall Apart which seemed to evolve with each and every progression.

There’s little room to wonder why Binoy’s tracks are always incredibly well received.

“Phone” is just one of the recently released singles from up and coming R&B Soul artist Ze-LuJ which you’ll want to turn your attention to if you’re always on the hunt for authentically expressive aural experiences which come with a potent serving of rhythmic catharsis.

The production may not be the smoothest in Phone, but it’s clear that Ze-LuJ is an artist with the ability to construct soundscapes which can leave you well and truly immersed through the perfect combination of soft melodies and naturally magnetic vocals.

 DNigel Feat-Drakes – Forever You: Lucidly Soothing Ambient Hip Hop

Washington, US-Based artist and producer DNigel has recently dropped their most ambiently immersive single yet “Forever You” featuring Drakes.

It may only be a short and sweet lucid offering of wavy downtempo R&B-infused Hip Hop, but it’s still extremely efficacious at drawing you into the resonantly soothing reverb-laden lush mix. The female vocals ethereally hover atop of the tentatively captivating instrumental progressions in perfect synergy.

I can’t say that I’ve encountered many soundscapes which manage to simultaneously resonate as soulful and haunting. But what I am unequivocally sure of is that DNigel has a deft mastery over the production of smooth and sonorous urban tracks.

Gibney Jeys Dobson & Mann – Henley’s After Party: Indulgently Smooth Blues Rock

After hearing the standout single “Henley’s After Party” from up and coming Rock artist Gibney Jeys Dobson & Mann’s debut album “Hint of Lemon”, I’m fairly certain that I won’t hear a more accordantly cathartic Rock single this year.

The single shares reminiscences with the more melodious offerings from artists such as Arctic Monkeys and the Black Keys. But Gibney Jeys Dobson & Mann weaved in plenty of tonally rich jazzy-warmth into the soundscape while simultaneously offering arrestive technical Blues guitar riffs which leave you with no degree of uncertainty over the talent contained by the irrefutably gifted musicians.
