MG II – Sorry for the Love: A Debut of Emotion-Driven Indie Pop

Twin duo MG II has just released their emotion-driven Indie Pop hit “Sorry for the Love”. The sweetly melodic number perfectly captures that inconsolable feeling when you become apologetic for loving someone. The lyrical inspiration for the downtempo soulful hit may have been melancholic, but the light shimmering tonnes ultimately make Sorry for the Love an uplifting track to slip into.

There’s a beautiful humility and honesty in Sorry for the Love. Which, if we’re all being honest, we can probably relate to. MG II’s ability to convey raw visceral emotion is a testament to their talent. You’ll definitely want them on your radar as there’s currently an EP in the works to follow on from their sensationally unforgettable debut single

Sorry for the Love is now available to stream via all major platforms via this link.

Kurudj – Lose My featuring Alan Chuan and Alyssa Mendelowitz

Up and coming Pop artist Kurudj has recently released their stunningly sedative fourth album ME 2. A Conformist. While each of the hazy Lo-Fi tracks is as tranquilly sweet as the last, the perfect introduction to Kurudj’s lofty Alt Dream Pop style is Lose My.

Lose My features vocals from Alan Chuan and Alyssa Mendelowitz and incorporates elements of Folk and Melodic Indie Hip Hop to create an unpredictably amorous soundscape which stays lucid while offering a significant serving of hypnotic catharsis.

The accordance is stripped away as the track moves towards the outro as discordant tones are thrown into the mix along with fervent synth melodies and cavernous blasts of distorted bass. It was a bold stylistic move, but any fans of Mr Bungle would undoubtedly approve.

Maisly – Radio Silence: Organically Empowering Indie Pop

With her empowering and feminist approach to Pop, in her latest single “Radio Silence” Nashville/London Alt Pop newcomer Maisly hasn’t just featured on the airwaves, she’s used them to inspire and connect with her listeners. I think we can all agree, more so than ever, that upraising artists are essential.

The all too resonant message in Radio Silence is a stark reminder to protect your self-worth while dealing with the people who we let control the perceptions of ourselves. It may be a relatively simple message, but how often do we find ourselves guilty of it?

With the clean and easy, popping and bright Pop Rock melodies, the organically feel-good radio-ready hit will make the perfect addition to your high-vibe Pop playlists.

Colton Smith – What Happens When the Sky Runs Out of Rain: Pensively Raw Melodic Pop

Even though the title to Colton Smith’s single “What Happens When the Sky Runs Out of Rain” may have indicated that they skipped a geography lesson, it’s still an incredibly strong offering of Pop with striking imagery making the sentiment behind the track even more visceral.

“What Happens When the Sky Runs Out of Rain” is just one of the pensively raw singles found on the up and coming artist’s debut 2019 album “Destroyed”. The gently intricate piano melodies strike the right emotive chords and sit in perfect synergy with Colton Smith’s harmonised poised vocals in What Happens When the Sky Runs Out of Rain.
