San Gabriel – Another One: Absorbingly Amorous Indie Synth Pop

There’s nothing quite like hearing the debut single from a professional artist who has finally decided to let their expression freely flow through their solo work. That very same blissful sensation washed over us after hitting play on San Gabriel’s stunning Dreampop single “Another One”.

The soulfully connectable, stylistically spellbinding release unravels through dreamy lush accordance as the imploringly soothing vocals add plenty of personality to the mix. If you could imagine what John Grant would sound like if you caught him in an amorous mood, you’ll get an idea of what San Gabriel has to offer.

I knew I was right to trust an artist wielding a Jazzmaster in their cover art. From said axe, San Gabriel carved the warm effervescent tones that the JM is infamous for. Yet, it is probably safe to say that the distinguishable JM sound has never found itself around such absorbing synth pop notes before.

Alt Pop Artist Michael Relics Got Experimental with Their Compassion in “Savior”

If you’re in need of a little aural salvation, hit play on the latest Alt Pop track “Savior” from up and coming artist Michael Relics.

With a futuristic, urban and genre-crumbling feel, Savior holds your intrigue right the way through the duration. From deep reverberantly fuzzy sonic notes to light textures which add an air of optimism to the track, it’s all expertly crafted and refined to allow you to feel every ounce of compassion which bled into Savior

The short and sweet production may be fairly lo-fi, but Michael Relics’ ability to construct an evocatively bruising track still shines through. We’re officially stoked to hear what they come up with next.

There was no forgetting the trailblazing Australian Pop artist Amber Lee after hearing her single “Doubt”. We were under no impression that we’d heard all she has to offer, but we were still blown away by her latest single “Kings and Queens”.

With Kings and Queens, Amber Lee raised the tempo to orchestrate an EDM Pop track which is as lyrically captivating as it is stylistically enrapturing. The track was written to tell anyone lucky enough to hear it that you don’t need to crumble and reconstruct yourself under society’s pressures. You can create your own image, enjoy the empowerment in celebrating authenticity. The kind of authenticity Amber Lee used to create this powerfully high-vibe single.

Aimee Saturne has made a salaciously daring Pop debut with “Don’t Tell My Boyfriend”

Don’t Tell My Boyfriend” is the salaciously daring debut Dark Pop single from LA artist Aimee Saturne. If it was any more debauched Christian fundamentalists would be on a mission to cancel her.

Her sultry vocal timbre perfectly matches the lyrics which go further than pretty much any other Pop single I’ve ever heard. There may be plenty of tracks about romantic indiscretion on the airwaves, but Aimee Saturne’s is definitely the hottest. Even the atmospherically tantalizing stylistic beats drip with sex appeal.

To say that she’s earned a spot on our radar feels like an understatement. We’re practically infatuated.

Evadaze Ft. Lachlan Andrews – ‘Are We Still Good?’: Perfect summer lockdown electropop

‘Are We Still Good?’ could be the story of 1,000,000 fledgeling lock-down romances, soon-to-be couples forced into isolation and unsure what, if anything, comes next. Catchy, bouncy, electronic pop perfectly backs singer Evadaze’s breathy delivery, guest vocalist Lachlan Andrews delivering a spicy counterpoint in this two-way conversation about love, life, and what might be.

It’s catchy and well-produced, the piano-led melody leaving plenty of space around Shortt’s vocals; the hook finds its way into your head, ear-worm like, and stays put around Lachlan and Shortt’s vocal interplay on the final chorus. A perfect summer antidote to lockdown blues.

Tyler Garrett has released their Sultry Synth-Carved EP “Potential Love”

Potential Love” is the recently released seductively atmospheric debut EP from up and coming artist and producer Tyler Garrett. While each of the sultry synth-carved singles hits the spot, the best introduction to Tyler Garrett’s ahead of the curve style is the title track which will prove just how much vulnerability and soul a Synth Pop single can possess.

Starting off with a downtempo, light and dexterous dreamscape, Potential Love steadily builds in tempo up to a striking EDM Pop single with plenty of stylistic edge. With no hint of hyperbole, it has to be said that Tyler Garrett’s approach to Synth Pop is one of the freshest we’ve heard this year. Not only will you find a smorgasbord of sincerity in their music, but you’ll also be pulled along by lush synth lines which have plenty of razor-sharp hooks to throw your way.

Illegal NoiZe breathed euphoric new life into Kevin Hill’s iconic track Dreamin’ with their experimentally progressive remix

After being blown away by Illegal NoiZe’s original tracks, we were stoked to hear he had given Kevin Hill’s transfixing hit Dreamin’ the Illegal NoiZe remix treatment.

We’d become accustomed to hearing big bass-driven hits from Illegal NoiZe such as their unforgettably dark EDM Hip Hop tracks Keep It Trill & I Like to Daft. We weren’t prepared for their hazy sweet remix of Dreamin’. But we loved the dreamy ambient side of the producer’s talent as much as we dug his ominously arrestive tracks.

Not only were lashings of Euphoria added to the mix, but each progression in the artist’s playfully teasing rework will draw you deeper into the rhythmically hypnotic soundscape even though you’ll never find a complacent moment in the 5:56-minute duration.

In 2014, Illegal NoiZe (formerly DJZ) was wiped off the internet by Sony/UMG. Now he’s back carrying his supposed copyright criminality as an ingenious artist title. Help put his new name on the map, but his beats on blast.

You can check out Illegal NoiZe’s remix of Dreamin’ via Spotify. Make sure to also check out their original tracks.
