TriPed opens up their amorously romantic soul in “Driving with Tears in My Eyes”

If you thought the title to TriPed’s latest single “Driving with Tears in My Eyes” is candid, just wait until you hear the raw, fraught introspection which acts as a window into the melancholic soul of this exceptional artist.

It’s an organ-tensingly evocative experience which is sweetened by the striking talent on display in the Synth Pop hit.

Alt Pop took a supersonic shift into the future with the release of Luan Seguim’s single “Terminator”

Chicago-based Alt Indie Pop artist Luan Seguim has crashed onto the airwaves with their unapologetically authentic track “Terminator” which still fizzes with commercial potential in spite of the arrestingly visceral distinction.

Remember when Imagine Dragons dropped Radioactive in 2012? Yeah, it’s as stylistic and fresh as that. With an eclectic array of influences behind their futuristically grooving sound, Luan Seguim was able to serve up a genre-defying hit which Indie, Rock, Dark Pop and Electronic Pop fans will all undoubtedly approve of.

You can check out Luan Seguim’s track Terminator by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Natasha Jane Julian – West Coast Girl: Sun-Baked Summer Sadness

Smoky, sultry, and initially piano-led, Natasha Jane Julian’s ‘West Coast Girl’ resolves into a beautifully, chilled alt-pop ballad telling the story of a California girl, dreaming and searching amidst sun-baked summer sadness.

Julian’s thoughtful, evocative lyrics and soulful, atmospheric vocal carry the song over keys and bass, a sophisticated and distinctive vocal performance that’s both commercial and individual. Julian is currently working on new material with UK composer/producer Ian Barter, but ‘West Coast Girl’ is the perfect late-summer antidote to darkening evenings and lockdown malaise.

Hear ‘West Coast Girl’ on Natasha’s website.

I wish there was someone so compassionate, candid and insightful releasing records when I was younger.

Leire –  The hauntingly delicate “Box Of Chesterfield”

https://vimeo.com/438661602/7002c753e9

They told us smoking wasn’t cool; judging by Leire’sBox Of Chesterfield’, ‘they’ were seriously wrong. This is a beautiful, haunting tale of anxiety, of existing rather than living, surviving whilst drowning; it’s a personal song, the sparse electronic music echoing behind Leire’s husky, plaintive vocal.

There’s a touch of Sia in the delivery, but the hushed verses give way to an emotive, soaring chorus which allows Leire to properly showcase her vocal talent. And that’s some serious talent, having already taken Leire from busking in Leicester Square to sharing stages with the likes of Tom Walker, Jake Bugg, and Rag’n’Bone Man,

‘Box Of Chesterfield’ is a slow-burn (no pun intended) beauty; Leire’s debut EP, telling ‘the truth about society’ and released later this year, can’t come soon enough. In the meantime, you can hear ‘Box Of Chesterfield’ here.
