“No Shortage of Gratitude” is the latest single from up and coming singer songwriter Heather Cook which fans of London Grammar, Daughter and Tom Odell are sure to appreciate. Whilst her plaintive approach to sound may carry reminiscence to the aforementioned artists, her style which is gently stamped down in her second single is irrefutably her own. The imagery which is weaved into the lyricism is just one of the reasons why the single unfolds as an ethereally arresting composition. The oceanic soundscape comes alive through lucid layers of reverb which adds texture to the acoustic instrumentals which follow a tentative, stripped-back downtempo pacing. Could you possibly need any more reason to check out Heather Cook’s indulgently smooth single?

The Ting Tings have returned with their fourth studio album “the Black Light” with a sound you wouldn’t quite come to expect from the Alt Indie duo. We were all enamoured by the infectious punchy hits from their first album “We Started Nothing”. Yet, what they’ve brought to the aural table this time around is enough to make you see them in a totally different light. “Estranged” is the second single to be released from the album, the melancholically minded energy of the single features expressively raw conversational style lyrics which accompany the electro Pop dark instrumentals.
Whilst I’m sure not everyone will see the appeal of how the low-key guitars gradually build through the track with daring synth elements, I for one adore how they’ve decided to reject the template of their earlier sounds. Instead, their progressive sound builds into a raucously immersive breakdown courtesy of searing guitar riffs which thrash against the throbbing electronic effects from the track.

“Borrowed” is the debut single from up and coming Electro Pop artist Sophie Lanuza who has proven she’s already learned how to master a hook-filled hit. I’ll warn you now that once you hear the chorus, it will probably be a long while until you forget about it. Sophia possesses an instantly accessible vocal style which takes you back to your favourite Pop artists from the 00’s whilst the intricacy of the arrangement will leave you in awe of the radio-ready earworm.
Sophia Lanuza soulfully unflinching vocal capacity rests high above the EDM-drive mix which starts off with the harsh snares of the drum pads, yet as the single builds in momentum, the multi-layer mix seamlessly interweaves digital effect with acoustic sound. In short, you’ve never heard a more anthemic ballad.

Fans of the 1975, The Neighbourhood and Bastille are going to need to check out DENOVA’s latest Electro Pop hit “You’re Not Alone”. As you’d expect, there’s sticky-sweet melodies and lyrical hooks so sharp they’re almost scarring. With a radio-ready and commercial sound, it’s hard to imagine DENOVA are a band who will stay on the underground for long. The single which was released on September 28th has already received a fair amount of attention for the ecstatic vibe they drove into the punchily sweet alchemy of the track. Whilst no fault could be found with the track, I couldn’t help but feel that there was nothing all too distinctive delivered in their sound. Although I have a feeling that this one is going to go viral.

“Woke Up in Delhi” is the latest single released by Electro Singer, Songwriter, Instrumentalist and Producer Joseph Feinstein. The first thing which hits you about the track is the absolute ingenuity which went into the orchestration. Whilst it is impossible to stick a singular genre label on the track or compare the artist to any other, it’s also impossible not to feel the hype behind the eccentric beat. With elements of Hip Hop, Pop, Rap, and World Music the single unfolds to prove that Joseph may one of the most prodigal minds on the underground right now. Whilst the praise may seem excessive, you only have to listen to the seamless fluidity of the perfectly polished radio-ready track to understand its captivating aura. It should come as no surprise that with his ability to create infectiously catchy melodies Joseph has also made a name for himself writing for other artists all over the world.

Considering that I.L.Y.A went with “Uniqueness Patrol” for a track title for his latest single, it’s a pretty good job it was a prodigally unique offering of EDM. The Moscow, Russia-based artist and songwriter has an undoubtedly infectious approach when it comes to pairing sticky-sweet melodies with playful lyrics versed by vocals which add even more euphoria to the track. There aren’t too many EDM artists out there adding the personal touch to their music which is why I.L.Y.A’s style is so refreshing.
The European influence is audible as the track runs through elements of the 80’s and 90’s offering a hit of nostalgia. Any fans of Empathy Test, Mesh, VNV Nation and Covenant are sure to love what I.L.Y.A have cooked up with their latest single.

For his debut release “Stay” Zac Pajak teamed up with Connor Mac to create a sensuously sonorous aural offering of ambient R&B-infused Electro Pop.
The first thing which hits you with “Stay” is the narrative, poignant style of the lyrics. Instantly you’re hooked into where the track is going to take you lyrically whilst the melodies subtly hook you, drawing you into the resounding alchemy of the Electronica track. Stay comes alive under the smooth feel of R&B, the contemporary veracity of Electro Pop and elements of Trap with the kick of the 808’s adding an infinite amount of depth. As far as first releases go, the future looks promising for Zac Pajak, with an already radio-ready sound don’t be too surprised if you hear a lot more from him in the future.

There are very few Electro Pop tracks which come alive through such intricately vibrant beats, yet with Hannah Nikole’s track ‘Happily Never After’ she’s incorporated Trap into her EDM soundscape to create a viscerally stunning EDM release.
Happily Never After was Hannah Nikole’s first single, which the singer songwriter from Spring, Texas used as testament to her resoundingly sweet yet powerful style. The mesmeric effect of the melodies had me gripped throughout the progression of the track which may have been released in 2017, yet Happily Never After is as contemporary as EDM Pop comes.
The strength in the up and coming artist’s vocals allowed Hannah to poignantly to reject the nihilistic narrative which lingers behind the lyrics. It’s not every day that you’re treated to such realism within Pop lyrics. Go on. Embrace it.

There was no forgetting Love, Abbey after her release of ‘Slow Love’, so it’s my absolute pleasure to announce she’s headed back to the studio and created yet another stunning Indie Pop anthem with ‘Winter Air’.
With Winter Air, it’s clear that Love, Abbey is well on her way to stamping down her expressively visceral style, the vocals, lyricism and beat all took a darker more ominous turn. And well, If you can’t get behind the resoundingly dizzying notes of a low-octave piano melody, what can you get behind? Whilst Love, Abbey took a more empowered stance with her vocals, the lyrics still expressed raw vulnerability which was just one of the elements that made this track so personable, charismatic and fresh.
If you’re looking for an indulgently dark electro pop beat to add to your playlists make sure to follow Love, Abbey on SoundCloud and prepare yourself for the drop.
If you haven’t caught Sfynx’s latest hit Yoyo yet, it’s my absolute pleasure to introduce the high-octane Electro Pop anthem. There really is no wondering why the up and coming recording artist’s single has already fallen under such high acclaim. The strength in Sfynx’s vocals are one thing, the sonic instrumentals are another, and the lyrical hooks are out of this world. With her radio-ready sound, it’s easy to predict that this is just the beginning for Sfynx. As the track progressed, I couldn’t quite put the stark reminiscence of Yoyo to t.A.T.u’s legendary single ‘Not Gonna Get Us’ behind me. I think It’s safe to say we’ve found another icon of pop with Sfynx.
