FingersHand – Gotta Feeling: Psychedelically Sweet Alt Electro Pop

From the intro in FingersHand’s latest single “Gotta Feeling (Something’s Going On)”, your soul is soothed, and your imagination is set alight.

It’s always refreshing when artists write music to indulge in an intrinsic pleasure rather than orchestrating tracks with aggrandized ideas ambling around their minds and worming their way into the soundscapes. Gotta Feeling is practically a breath of warm, kaleidoscopically cathartic air.

There’s a playful and almost juvenile air to Gotta Feeling, despite the maturity in the talent which allowed them to cook up such a psychedelically sticky-sweet earworm.

FingersHand captured the same soul-filling vibe as offered by the likes of ELO, but with their delectably unique brand of retro-futurism, there was plenty of distinction found in the playful Polyphonic Alt Pop hit.

The Fox at Night serves up playful polyphonic nostalgia with “Childhood”

https://open.spotify.com/album/7GkGMoGBU3qFyiTBNt757D

Scottish-born, Madrid-based EDM artist and producer The Fox at Night (Andrew Macfarlane) has prepared 5-minutes of solid aural ingenuity for you to revel in with their nostalgically sweet single “Childhood”.

The playful polyphonic tones make it all too easy to immerse yourselves in the authentically enticing mix which picks up momentum at an incredibly teasing pace. Mid-way through the track, you’ll be in the midst of a trancey yet delicately soulful soundscape which boasts elements of Progressive House, but it will be easier to tell you that you’ve never quite heard anything like this before.

You may need a moment or two to realign your rhythmic pulses once Childhood has faded to a close.

Sam Mudd has released their debut Polyphonic EDM Pop Earworm “Where Are You?”

Up and coming artist Sam Mudd has made their lockdown debut with the polyphonically electric Pop hit “Where Are You (All Up)” and stamped down their authentically expressive style.

The Lo-Fi track kicks off with a melodic guitar intro before sliding into an energetic EDM Pop beat layered with Sam Mudd’s effect-laden vocals which find perfect synergy with the entrancing rhythms.

As much as we appreciated the artist’s quintessentially endearing style, the reverb and use of autotune were slightly excessive. But that’s not to say there isn’t plenty of potential to be found in Where Are You. Any artist willing to be so bold with their debut track is more than worth having on your radar.

Loosh – Get Out the House: Polyphonic Hip Hop Pop

Loosh’s latest Alt Pop single “Get Out the House” is exactly what you want to hear when you hit play on a new artist.

It’s got that instantaneous draw as your mind attempts to get to grips with a beguilingly fresh new soundscape, and the progressive track has quite the aural trip in store. From polyphonic key solos to Hip Hop-style grooves to moodily convictive Alt Pop vocals, Get Out the House contains it all plus plenty of other intricate nuances which affirm that Loosh puts innovation and expression at the forefront when writing their tracks.

If you’re as tired as assimilative uninspired music as I am, go and restore your faith in contemporary musicians. It may have been bad timing to release a track called Get Out of the House just before the world went into lockdown mode. Yet, we can appreciate the sentiment all the same.

DK – Okay: Soulfully-Sweet Inventively-Fresh Polyphonic Pop

We can always tell when good vibes have been made the cornerstone of a single, and it’s all too evident that Urban Alt Pop artist DK made it the essence of his recently released single “Okay”.

Throughout the tonally vibrant track, you’ll hear the repetition of the mantra “I’ll be okay”, with plenty of inspiring introspection in between. By the time you get to the outro, don’t be surprised if the playfully polyphonic mix has lifted your spirits and organically offered a heavy serving of optimism. It’s impossible not to be endeared by the feat of Hip Hop, Pop, Soul, and RnB.

I have a feeling of any fans of Nintendo-style chiptune tracks will definitely want Okay on their playlists.
