Emily Lockett gives Country Pop Rock a stunning modernist twist with “Front Porch”

Emily Lockett

Throw your preconceptions out of the window before you hit play on Emily Lockett’s upcoming Country single “Front Porch”.

With a stunning modernist twist, Emily Lockett has allowed the genre to make a seismic shift in contemporary resonance. The electric guitars grace the soundscape with angularly absorbing licks to ensure that even though Front Porch is roots-deep in Old School Country Blues attitude, it drips with commercial potential.

The UK-based singer-songwriter and instrumentalist is currently studying at one of the finest institutions in the UK, I’m of course referring to BIMM Manchester. She’s already had plenty of success with her former releases after making her debut in December 2016. I can’t help but feel excited about what’s to come from the trailblazingly distinctive artist. Get her on your radar.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Front Porch, in the meantime, you can head on over to the artist’s official website and check out their former releases.

Bethany Ferrie – Under: Soulfully Resounding, Passionately Fierce Americana Pop Rock

Bethany Ferrie

Under” is the latest soulfully resounding Indie Pop Rock single to be released by up and coming Glaswegian singer-songwriter Bethany Ferrie. If the weight of the emotion in this poignantly transfixing single doesn’t floor you, it’s safe to assume that your soul is dysfunctional.

With Bluesy guitar licks leading the way through a modernistic production and Bethany Ferrie’s powerfully arrestive vocal range, Under is a uniquely compelling soundscape with plenty of commercial appeal. Under is the kind of track you give repeat attention to so that the lyrics become even more meaningful with every listen. We definitely can’t say that about most new artist’s soundscapes.

You can check out Bethany Ferrie’s single Under for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud from July 10th. In the meantime, you can listen to their equally as visceral previous releases.

Country Pop Singer-Songwriter Madelyn Jones Has Made Her Unmissable Debut with “For You”

Singer-songwriter Madelyn Jones has made her unmissable debut with the evocatively arrestive Country Pop single For You.

The simple frill-free soundscape puts raw emotion at the forefront while the gentle guitar melodies lead the rich, full instrumental arrangement.

For You is much more than your average lovelorn Pop single. The unapologetically empowering radio-ready single draws you right into the narrative which runs through the all too relatable experience of being in a relationship where you give far more than you take but still can’t bring yourself to walk away.

Given that For You was such a strong debut, we can’t wait to hear Madelyn Jones sophomore release.

You can check out For You on all major streaming platforms via this link.

Maisly – Radio Silence: Organically Empowering Indie Pop

With her empowering and feminist approach to Pop, in her latest single “Radio Silence” Nashville/London Alt Pop newcomer Maisly hasn’t just featured on the airwaves, she’s used them to inspire and connect with her listeners. I think we can all agree, more so than ever, that upraising artists are essential.

The all too resonant message in Radio Silence is a stark reminder to protect your self-worth while dealing with the people who we let control the perceptions of ourselves. It may be a relatively simple message, but how often do we find ourselves guilty of it?

With the clean and easy, popping and bright Pop Rock melodies, the organically feel-good radio-ready hit will make the perfect addition to your high-vibe Pop playlists.

You can check out Radio Silence for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

Jacob Mondry – The Winning Sperm: A Sticky-Sweet Indie Folk Celebration of What it Means to Be Human

After hearing Jacob Mondry’s single “Colour Me Blue”, we were expecting more quintessentially charming records to follow. What we definitely weren’t expecting was a quintessentially charming track titled “The Winning Sperm”.

Before I pressed play, I knew it would win me over. Any single which strips back the romanticism about what it is to human will always be worth its weight in aural gold. Sure enough, we weren’t disappointed.

The devilish wit in the lyrics paired with the accordantly innocent Indie Folk vocals and the gentle acoustic instrumentals is something you’re going to have to hear for yourselves to fully appreciate.

Not every artist could get away with such a borderline crass topic and still win you over. Perceptibly, Jacob Mondry isn’t your average artist. And it’s not only us who think so, after signing a deal with Universal Records, it’s easy to expect big things to come from the LA-based artist.

Country Pop artist Elliot Wren has made her debut with the single “RIP My Diary”

Up and coming singer-songwriter Elliot Wren has made their debut with the polished Country Pop single “RIP My Diary”.

Any fans of Taylor Swift’s sticky-sweet bubblegum Pop style will definitely want to consider the single for their playlists. It’s instantly accessible and the melodies aren’t shy about sticking to your synapses for a long while after you’ve heard them.

It really wouldn’t be a surprise to hear Elliot Wren’s future soundscapes in the OST’s for feel-good films. It’s got that boundless emotively captive appeal which debut singles very infrequently offer.

You can check out Elliot Wren’s debut single by heading over to Spotify.
