Alt Synth Pop Artist Catelyst is Dropping Euphoric Ingenuity on the Airwaves with their Debut Release

Alt Dance Pop artist and producer Catelyst made their sonically-charged 2020 debut with the single “Circles” featuring Cristy Santos, the energetic synthy track immediately garnered plenty of acclaim. Considering that the track has more Funk than Daft Punk and searing infusions of Alt Rock, it’s easy to see why.

Yet, the debut single was much more than just flawlessly captivating rhythmic grooves. There was plenty of magnetic soul to attach yourself to alongside the playful eccentric nature of Catelyst’s production and lyrical style.

It wasn’t long before Catelyst followed on from the release of Circles with the release of two more singles which will also be found on their upcoming 10 track EP. Beside You and When I Leave also stand as a striking testament of Catelyst’s ability to throw away archetypal genre constraints and let their artistic expression create high-octane euphoria-awakening soundscapes

If we were still allowed to hit dancefloors, we’d be more than happy to ingest the up and coming artist and producer’s earworms on them.

You can check out Catelyst’s latest tracks for yourselves via Spotify. Make sure to give them a follow, if the first three tracks from their debut EP are anything to go by, you won’t want to miss out on the rest.

Bedtime – You Are Good: Organically Euphoric Future Pop

Organically soulful electronica may be harder to find than a needle in a haystack, but Bedtime’s debut euphorically orchestrated hit “You Are Good” more than makes up for the shortfall.

With the accordantly magnetic vocals falling upon the entrancing melodies, You Are Good is immersive from the first hit. The momentum of the hook-laden single makes it the perfect multipurpose track by finding the perfect balance between avidity and melody. Plenty of Future Pop and Electronica fans alike will find plenty of appeal in Bedtime’s futuristic approach to production which gives the soundscape has massive contemporary mainstream potential.

The lyrics explore our obsession with being remembered after we’re gone and gently point out the redundancy of it. I wholeheartedly agree. After you hear it, I’m sure you will too.

Andre Meneses has put his own Alex Clare’s Dub Pop hit “Too Close”

Pop hits don’t get much more anthemically infectious than Alex Clare’s Brit-Award-snagging 2011 single Too Close. Well, apart from when emerging artists such as Andre Meneses put their own spin on the sound and project even more soul into the vocals.

Andre Meneses’ slightly whiskey-soaked vocals create an alchemic contrast against the instrumental progressions which remain as effervescent as ever while giving the track a brand new Indie Blues Rock almost grungy edge.

Any fans of Calvin Harris’ sultrily scratchy vocals will easily become enamoured by Andre Meneses’s sublimely serrated cover.

You can check out Andre Meneses’ cover of Too Close which was released on March 20th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.
