Celebrate Romantic Freedom with Theofania’s sensationally raw Pop single “Heart Break Free”  

From the first vocal note in Pop artist Theofania’s latest single Heart Break Free, the sincerity becomes palpable, as does the sense that you’re about to embark on an emotional rollercoaster. When the chorus hits, you definitely won’t be disappointed.

Starting off with a melancholic offering of introspection, Heart Break Free offers immediate depth and compassionately shares resonance with heartbroken. Yet, for the choruses, Theofania opted for high-vibe bass-driven energy which affirms that even if you feel like you’re drowning in apathy, the clouds will break, just like the chorus.

It’s tracks like Heart Break Free which really put into context the emotions, which if left unchecked, can ruin our self-esteem. With that in mind, Theofania’s Pop hit is worth its weight in aural gold.

This Dance” is the lead single from Indie Pop artist The Garnetts’ forthcoming EP of the same title. It’s also one of the most compellingly magnetic feats of Guitar Pop that we’ve heard this year.

It also unravels as the perfect Pop track to hit play on as Autumn starts to draw in with the shorter days and colder nights. Whether you’re amorously savouring the warmth of a season are a lover, This Dance is sure to hit you right in the feels.

Eamonn Conor – Dig Deeper: Feverously High-Octane RnB Pop

If you can’t take a trip to the ocean, up and coming Pop artist Eamonn Conor’s latest single “Dig Deeper” is the next best thing. The resolvingly oceanic Pop hit kicks off with a tenderly reassuring intro before the aural waves break and suddenly, you’re immersed in the high-octane feverously passionate production.

The Australian artist could easily fill a stadium with their all-consuming sound which is bound to be a hit with any fans of artists such as Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber. But unlike many Pop artists, Eamonn found enough space in the soundscape to stamp down his signature sound. If artists climbed the Pop charts on the merit of their vocals alone, you’d find Eamonn’s name right at the top. The unfaltering nature of their flawlessly extended harmonic howls is enough to make your soul quiver.

Kees leads us Into the Darkness with her latest high-vibe culture-merging Alt Pop hit  

Award-winning Singer-Songwriter, Dancer and Instrumentalist Kees left a mesmeric Alt-Pop earworm on the airwaves in the form of her latest single Into the Darkness which dropped on September 18th.

The tonally-rich grooving EDM Pop hit incorporates rhythmically arrestive Eastern Roots in the polished instrumental arrangement, finding perfect synergy with the resounding vocals which teasingly and playfully breeze through a dynamic vocal range.

Into the Darkness truly breaks the monocultural mould by simultaneously celebrating Kees’ Armenian heritage and the influence of her Western upbringing. There’s a slightly abrupt and ingenious end to Into the Darkness which leaves you insatiable to soak up more of Kees’ mesmeric sound. We’ll definitely be keeping our ear to the ground to hear what she comes up with next.

Into the Darkness is available to stream via YouTube.

Harmonical took their sound to seductive new level with their salaciously soulful single “Good Thing”

Good Thing” featuring Elan Noelle is just one of the salaciously soulful singles from the trailblazing Pop artist Harmonical. If you’re looking for seductive Pop grooves to get you into the mood, you’ll definitely appreciate the way in which Harmonical added a touch of class to new-school romance.

The lyrics teasingly allude to the fact that sexting has pretty much become a cornerstone of modern dating while the soundscape itself holds cinematically evocative appeal.

Every new release we hear from Harmonical affirms the injustice in the that their sensational hits haven’t gone viral yet. Good Thing should have taken WAP’s place in the Pop charts.

3oland – You Keep Running: Mould-Breaking Synthy Sweet Pop

You Keep Running” is the mould-breaking synthy sweet Pop hit from one of the most distinctive artists currently sharing their danceable drops with the airwaves, 3oland.

If you mapped out my brain after hearing You Keep Running, you’d find that a significant proportion of it has been dominated by the galvanising beats, the sonic synth lines and of course, 3oland’s high-energy sincerely evocative singles.

Even though You Keep Running boasts a massive sound, the Copenhagen-based artist still succeeded in ensuring that the track has an intimate and connectable feel.

There really is no room to wonder why he’s able to garner so much hype with his infectiously fresh sound. Get him on your radar.

There was no forgetting up and coming Pop trailblazer Elliot Wren after their debut single “RIP My Diary”. We’re stoked to announce their return with the single “Good Luck” which dropped on August 21st.

Even though there was only a short duration between the two releases, Good Luck stands a testament to the maturity which Elliot Wren has found in their sound. Good Luck is a feisty yet compassionate infusion of slick and stylistic Rock and accessibly soulful Pop. The snappy lyrics are packed with compassion, if you’re looking for a little aural empowerment to restore the balance of your self-worth, hit play.

Ella has released her fiercely redemptive Pop single “Oops Oops”

If you like your Pop artists unapologetically fierce, breaking artist Ella has all the empowering attitude you could possibly ask for in her latest release “Oops Oops”.

If you turn on the radio, you’ll hear plenty of artists offering lovelorn introspection and abrasively sweet love songs and little else in between. Ella took a very different approach to contemporary Pop. Her redemptive single is a powerful reminder to women that you don’t need to turn into a snappish dolt every time you’ve been romantically screwed over. While we can’t exactly condone financial exploitation, we make no bones about celebrating this stellar radio-ready feat of Pop.

You’d be hard-pressed to find Pop hooks which are sharper than the ones that will grab you in the 90s-inspired perennial Pop earworm.
