Leon Seti’s ephemeral new track ‘Japan’ is a deeply moving tribute wrapped up in a pitch-perfect pop song

Leon Seti is the project born out of the mind and voice of Leo Baldi, who writes and produces every song of the discography. Based in London and Arezzo, Italy, his nostalgic yet experimental electro-pop has been played by the BBC Introducing, was featured in Billboard Italia and his latest album COBALT reached #1 on the Itunes Electronic chart in Italy. Leon Seti played in venues such as The O2 Academy Islington and The Spice of Life in London, as well as historic clubs like Spin Time Labs in Rome and Il Cassero in Bologna

In a tribute to his mother who suffered a number of health-related issues during quarantine in Italy, Leon Seti has released the song “Japan” which is a soft and supple track that is rhythmically visionary.

Telling a story throughout, Leon Seti sings the lyrics beautifully occasionally hitting his falsetto to empower the track. Easily relatable to many during these tough times, Leon Seti tells us his story with his lyrics that he wrote and the winding progressive beats that brings this escapism feeling throughout.

The song has been produced by Leon Seti and Pancratio, and a video for the song has been released to accompany the track which has been directed and edited by Thomas Rebour with Shaun Waldie acting as director of photography. It sees various images and scenes of Leon Seti, edited in line with the track itself.

“Japan” is an awesome track we could listen to on repeat, giving us pure escapism as Leon Seti impresses with his stunning vocals and lyrics. It is one track we all need to add to our everyday playlists..

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.

Craymo – Give Me Your Love: Euphoria-Dripping Alt Indie EDM Pop

If you’re looking for an Indie Pop aural pick me up, you won’t find many tracks which can get you much higher than Craymo’s serotonin-boosting feat of Electro Pop “Give Me Your Love”.

Even though Give Me Your Love is a Dance track through and through, there’s a magnetically connectable Indie vibe which makes it impossible not to warm to Craymo’s charismatic approach to their sound.

There aren’t many EDM hits which can hit me in the feels. But Craymo definitely succeeded with their euphoria-dripping Alt-Indie EDM Pop earworm where the vocals are left clean, raw, and laced with powerfully romantic good vibes. For your sanity’s sake, get them on your radar.

Roadx – It’s Going Down: Curve-creating Soul-Soaked Electro Pop Funk

If it’s been a while since an up and coming Alternative artist has left you adrenalized by their curve creating ingenuity, hit play on the Funk-riddled mix It’s Going Down from breaking Berlin-based artist Roadx.

Finding the perfect balance between Funk, Electro Pop and Soul, Roadx created sultry expressive earworm which will stick to your synapses like superglue. It transcends transcendence and offers danceable beats which give you very little option in whether you’ll move to them.

I got just as excited hearing It’s Going Down as I did the first time I heard John Grant’s nuanced take on Electronica. If you think that sounds like hyperbole, try resisting the danceable energy which the chorus will throw at you.

Scottish duo MarionvilleModels drop their new track Reminds Me

With a long-lasting collaboration in the works, Scottish duo MarionvilleModels drop their new track Reminds Me, a dive into electro-pop meeting indie pop.

To the likes of bands like The 1975, Reminds Me rolls out an array of synth and guitar sounds creating a widely reverberated harmony in new wave style. Dance-y drums and groovy bass lines do the rest, creating an engaging indie pop vibe that many UK acts have fostered in the last decade.

Due to their plenitude of sounds, MarionvilleModels pass as a 5-man band, when in reality the project solely relies on the stupendous proficiency of vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Jake Berry, and producer and multi-instrumentalist Jack Davis – a quality that fellow peers and musicians know how to appreciate. As well as their fans, hopefully.

You can listen to Reminds Me for yourself on Spotify.

Carla Stark – Wallpaper: A Moodily Immersive Alt Pop Playlist Essential

Magnetic artistic personalities aren’t to be underestimated. Which is exactly what up and coming Pop artist Carla Stark has proven with her single Wallpaper.

With an EP in the works for 2020, Carla Stark is giving us plenty to get excited about. But for now, Wallpaper serves as the perfect introduction to her sleek, and sultry stylistic edge. Wallpaper is one of the most moodily immersive Alt Pop earworms we’ve heard… possibly ever.

With a voice which borders on hypnotic and beats orchestrated with the intention of feeding you sensual rhythm, Wallpaper is a track which naturally drips refined sex appeal. From the first verse, it was perceptible that Carla Stark made a radio-ready hit with Wallpaper. But are the radiowaves ready for an artist so fearlessly distinctive?

GARRETT PAKNIS – Body; Salaciously Danceable Electro Pop

Any fans of Peaches are going to want to check out the latest single from Berlin-based artist GARRETT PAKNIS. “Body” is a salaciously danceable feat of Electro Pop which will gladly remind you of just how much sex appeal can be infused into a mix.

The snaring percussion and the futuristic synth notes create the perfect for GARRETT PAKNIS’ vocals and lyrics which consistently whisper carnality into Body.

I can only imagine how well this track would go down in Berghain or the Kit Kat club. Similarly, there are sure to be plenty of listeners in the UK who will want to surrender their own rhythmic pulses to this hypnotically lustful vibe.

Alya Elouissi takes future Pop one step further with the single “Fool for You”

Up and coming Alt-Pop artist Alya Elouissi released her latest single “Fool for You” on August 9th 2019 and she’s already made a fair amount of waves in the Future Pop genre.

By not filtering the soul or artistic creative passion in Fool for You, the single resonates as incredibly authentic as it serves up plenty of rhythmic euphoria while the track moves through the sun-soaked verses hitting the sweet spots in the choruses. But simultaneously Fool for You also carries all of the spiky tonality which you’d expect to hear in any self-respecting moody contemporary Electro Pop track. Alya Elouissi really has found the perfect balance of artful expression, contemporary appeal, and slightly vintage Soul Pop vibes in Fool for You.

RiMarie – 1953 ft. Here & Elsewhere: Vibrantly Soulful Electro Pop

1953 (feat. Here & Elsewhere) by RiMarie

LA-based up and coming Electro Pop artist has cooked up an artfully compelling storm with Here & Elsewhere for her latest single “1953” which is due for official release on September 7th.

Although there’s plenty of moody bluesy soul poured into 1953, the soundscape remains vibrant and uplifting through the addition of RiMarie’s strikingly dynamic vocals which don’t solely serve to hit the right pitch. Instead, with 1953, it’s incredibly perceptible that the soundscape was driven by the narrative which unfolds with plenty of colour making it all too tempting to find the resonance amongst the rhythmic pulses and lyrical poignancy of this single. It’s fairly rare to find a sense of comfort in a track from an artist who you’ve not previously been acquainted with, RiMarie will definitely be one to watch.

You can stream and download RiMarie’s latest single 1953 for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp now.
