Carly Opacic – Farther: Resonantly Vibrant Future Pop

“Farther” is the latest single released by up and coming Indie Pop artist Carly Opacic which perfectly fuses vintage tones with a contemporary vibrant appeal. But more importantly, Carly Opacic has created her latest single through the motivation to make the world a less alienating place.

Many people presume that their life experiences are individualistic, but it is tracks such as Farther which remind us that we have more in common than we realise. Along with the compassionate sentiment the track was orchestrated with, you’ll also be able to find a myriad of music styles. From Trap to Funk, to Jangle Pop, to Electronica. It’s all weaved into the experimentally rhythmic single to create the perfect track to slip into and feel the evocative catharsis.

Indie artist Haven has made their debut with the transfixingly hazy single “Somewhere Brighter”

Up and coming Indie artist Haven has demonstrated their powers of aural transfixion with their debut single “Somewhere Brighter”.

With the Jangle Pop guitar progressions, a Post-Punk tone creeping in through the basslines, and Haven’s instantly magnetic vocals, debut singles don’t come much more exciting than this.

Around the Pop sensibilities of the soundscape, there is also layers of soft Alt 90s Grunge sound combined with melodies which aren’t too dissimilar from bands as Blink 182. There may be a slightly Lo-Fi feel to Somewhere Brighter, but this only amplifies the emotivity in the seamlessly progressive single.

The single kicks off with soft vocals around hazy, sunny layers of reverb spilling from the guitars before building into a captivating feat of pioneering Indie which is all too tempting to play on repeat.

Up and coming Indie artist Indigo State released their latest single “By the Rays Beaming Down from the Sun” on September 27th. By the time the intro runs through, you already have the affirmation that Indigo State is a band with a sound synergetic enough to be break into the mainstream.

While there may be familiarity in their sound to bands such as The Kooks and The Kinks, there’s also an overpowering sense of accessibility. Which means that it’s all too easy to throw yourself into the eccentrically sweet soundscape which finds the perfect balance between Indie Rock and Indie Pop.

Birch Releases Their Third Strikingly Pensive Indie Single “Dry Lungs”  

Up and coming Indie Singer-songwriter Birch has returned with their third single “Dry Lungs”. They say all the best things come in three’s, but I highly doubt that we’ve come close to hearing the best from Birch yet. Their ability to compose emotively raw soundscapes seems to be getting more refined with each new release.

With Dry Lungs, Birch has used their creative talent to contort undiluted emotion into an aural experience which won’t fail to offer you resonance. I don’t find empathy through lyricism all too often, but the lyrics and the veracity of the delivery in Dry Lungs will stay with me for quite some time.

Dry Lungs kicks off with the finger-picked notes of the acoustic guitar which emit an intimate sense of urgency before introducing Birch’s sombrely magnetic vocals and leading into the verses where the ethereally compelling soundscape ebbs and flows in momentum. The explosive bursts of energy and instrumental eclecticism make the candid nature of the lyrics even more striking.

Hollie Findlay – Querencia: Soul-Soaked Contemporary Pop

Hollie Findlay’s latest single “Querencia” definitely doesn’t fail to hit the emotive sweet spot. Her unique take on Pop ballads has created a melodiously immersive soundscape to melt into.

The piano-led arrangement offers subtly jazzy elements of Neo-Soul while Hollie Findlay ensured that Querencia pulled together with plenty of magnetic contemporary appeal thanks to her soft and accessible vocals. The 16-year-old singer-songwriter has proven with this release that maturity in sound definitely doesn’t correlate with age.

It was highly perceptible that instead of creating Querencia as a testament to her talent, the primary objective was to create single which offers a potent amount of catharsis, and it’s safe to say that she was successful.

Binoy – Things Fall Apart: Ominously Sultry Alt Pop

Following on from the success of their earlier released 2019 singles, Los Angeles Pop Singer-Songwriter Binoy has recently dropped his latest experimentally endearing Pop track “Things Fall Apart”.

With an eclectic instrumental arrangement and an even more un-archetypal array of different genre influences, it’s unlikely that you’ll have heard another soundscape quite like Things Fall Apart before.

With Rock Pop vocals and an ominous synth-led 80s inspired melody, Binoy has created a futuristically compelling single which allows you to soak up the accessibility of the familiar elements of sound under a brand-new stylistic contortion. I’m also ridiculously pleased that Binoy utilised their sax skills in Things Fall Apart which seemed to evolve with each and every progression.

There’s little room to wonder why Binoy’s tracks are always incredibly well received.

Murfy’s fLaW release their latest single “The Right Now”

Up and coming Kenyan Alt Rock artist Murfy’s fLaW dropped their latest single “The Right Now” on September 19th, and if you’re looking for a truly authentic voice, you’re going to be pleasantly enamoured.

There may be no striking reminiscences to other artists in the soundscape, but there’s plenty of accessibility through the Pop Rock female vocals which should be plenty of appeal to fans of Garbage and the angular Indie guitar licks. More importantly, The Right Now spills plenty of magnetic soul making it all but impossible not to hook into the deftly orchestrated rhythms.

Expect big choruses, alchemically fresh instrumental synergy, and a melody which may need some persuading to leave your mind alone from The Right Now.

Bolin Jue – Friends: Sticky-Sweet Alt-Indie Pop

If you don’t find endearment within the latest single “Friends” from up and coming Alt Indie artist Bolin Jue, it’s safe to say that you don’t have a soul.

The synthy polyphonic Indie Pop delight carves out plenty of quintessential charm while carrying some reminiscences to bands such as Fidlar and Wavves. Yet, with the sticky-sweet Pop sensibility of Friends, it’s all too easy to find a sense of comfort within the gentle melodies.

It’s been a while since I heard a track which I didn’t know whether I should smile or shed a tear as it progressed. As despite the adorable nature of Friends, the track sugar-coats the fact that a lot of people find themselves in the same position where it seems all their friends are broken; it’s still a slightly bitter pill to swallow.

Pop Singer-Songwriter Roxie Jane is Set to Drop an Anthemic Masterpiece with “Gold”

Roxie Jane

Up and coming Pop artist Roxie Jane is set to release her hardest-hitting contemporary ballad yet. “Gold” is a single which makes no apology for the evocative meaning it shares, or the clever use of anthemic effect it uses to really drive that undiluted pensively empowering message home.

After only hearing a short teaser of Gold, it’s all too impossible not to be convinced of the massive commercial potential behind the singer-songwriter. Her sound boasts a rare authenticity and conviction which remains palpable through the powerful delivery of her lyrics. Roxie Jane also easily sets herself apart through how much she dares to express through her lyricism to create a massive hit.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Gold for yourselves. So in the meantime, head on over to the artist’s Spotify page.
