Amber Lee invites you to celebrate your authenticity with her EDM Pop single “Kings and Queens”

There was no forgetting the trailblazing Australian Pop artist Amber Lee after hearing her single “Doubt”. We were under no impression that we’d heard all she has to offer, but we were still blown away by her latest single “Kings and Queens”.

With Kings and Queens, Amber Lee raised the tempo to orchestrate an EDM Pop track which is as lyrically captivating as it is stylistically enrapturing. The track was written to tell anyone lucky enough to hear it that you don’t need to crumble and reconstruct yourself under society’s pressures. You can create your own image, enjoy the empowerment in celebrating authenticity. The kind of authenticity Amber Lee used to create this powerfully high-vibe single.

Kings and Queens dropped on September 4th; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

Trevor Gerard – Revelry: A Strikingly Sincere Indie Pop Admission

Singer-songwriter Trevor Gerard has breezed onto the airwaves with their strikingly sincere single Revelry.

Many love songs fail to allude to the agony and fear which is commonly synonymous with those pesky feelings of attachment. Trevor Gerard allowed the tender and delicate semi-orchestral soundscape to poignantly capture the vulnerability.

The lyrics may be candid, but the tone of the notes in this arrestive Indie Pop ballad tell you much more than the poetically meta lyrics. There’s a pensive air to the single, but Trevor Gerard still offers that bitter-sweet feeling of enrapturement. If you’re aurally sensitive, grab a tissue before you press play.

You can check out Trevor Gerard’s track via Spotify.

Amber Lee reflects our melancholy back at us with “Doubt”

“Doubt” is the recently released compellingly resonant Pop single from up and coming singer-songwriter Amber Lee which perfectly captures the collective mood felt over recent months.

Saying that it is hard to see past doubt may be hard. Easing into this strikingly evocative single and finding a connection definitely isn’t.

Amber Lee’s modern and stylistic take on Neo-Classic Pop complete with sonic synth lines drips with contemporary appeal. If any voice can lead this generation of Pop artist’s, it comes from Amber Lee’s larynx.

You can check out the official video to Doubt which dropped on August 15th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

Hannah Crowley has made her Shoegaze-infused Indie Pop debut with “Scrolling”

Dublin-born, LA-based singer-songwriter Hannah Crowley has made her debut with the mellifluously immersive single “Scrolling”.

The nuances of Shoegaze in the Indie Pop soundscape give the instrumentals a smoothly melodious feel while the lyrics offer a bruising amount of resonance. If you’re sick of spending your days attached to your phone trying to stay connected with the world, lyrics such as “scrolling through my life to past the time” will hit hard.

It’s not every day we hear debut singles as promising as Scrolling. Get her on your radar.

Scrolling is due for release on August 21st, you’ll be able to check it out on all major platforms including SoundCloud.

Martin – the haunting acoustic ballad “Depth Over Distance”

Starting off with crystal clear fingerpicked chords, ‘Depth Over Distance’ is the second single from London singer-songwriter Martin, the follow-up to debut ‘Summer Haze’. Where ‘Summer Haze’, though, was synth-driven alt-pop, ‘Depth Over Distance’ pits Martin’s soulful falsetto over nothing more than a haunting solo acoustic guitar.

It’s a tough thing to do, the sparse instrumentation leaving no space for a performer to hide, but here the result is powerful and touching, a very personal break-up ballad filled with the heartbreak of a relationship which has died. Sure, there’s an easy James Blunt comparison, or maybe in this instance the early Ed Sheeran of ‘The A-Team’, but in reality, Martin’s voice is reminiscent of Annie Lennox on ‘Walking On Broken Glass’ or ‘Why’ mixed with, maybe, a touch of Justin Vernon – a plaintive falsetto, questioning and heartfelt without being cloying, and it matches the song perfectly.

Martin’s debut EP ‘Home’ is out later this summer; you can keep up with him, and listen to ‘Depth Over Distance’, here.

Ryan Xo is set to release his most evocative feat of Synthpop yet with “Soul Food”

Ryan Xo

We’ve all had a pretty soul-sucking 2020 so far, so breaking Pop artist Ryan Xo sought to address the balance with his latest single “Soul Food” and it’s safe to say that he succeeded.

His seductively soulful Synth-Pop single offers a serious amount of authentically amorous evocative appeal. With the slightly Retro Pop-vibe, it’s accessible from the first hit. Any fans of the 90s Pop sound under a contemporary production will undoubtedly want to make Soul Food a firm fixture on their playlists.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Soul Food yourself. In the meantime, you can check out Ryan Xo’s earlier releases on SoundCloud.

Verona Rose has released her all too relatable playful piano Indie Pop single “Overthinking”

Singer-songwriter Verona Rose has recently released her all too relatable Alt-Pop single “Overthinking”. If you’re a fan of playful piano Indie Pop hits, you’ll hit aural gold when you hit play.

Verona Rose’s narrative Pop-style will be a hit with any fans of Kate Nash or Lily Allen, but Overthinking is so much more than your usual quirky offering of eccentric Pop. With the production, Verona Rose achieved the massive euphoric sound which you’d expect to hear from a Taylor Swift track.

There is an incredible maturity and perceptible amount of stylish distinction in Overthinking. It’s even more impressive that it is coming from a 19-year-old Singer-Songwriter. It’s only a matter of time before her name graces the top of the Pop charts. Naturally, we can’t wait to hear what comes next.

Overthinking is now available to stream on all major platforms via this link.

Brice Parker’s Pop song ”Time” is a reminder to take charge of your life

Pop singer Brice Parker’sTime” is a brand new release and we love the energy attached to this young artist who drifts in with his enthusiastic nature.

Taken off the brand new album ”One”, ”Time” is an introspective song all about how we should not take time for granted. Time is more valuable than money and fame. He infuses his fresh style and clever approach here to passionate levels. There is so much truth to this notion and we all need to take note and not take time for granted.

The young singer Brice Parker who is still getting his social media game going, is a talented young singer who belies his age with a professional performance on ”Time”. He will surely grow after this new song and album. For a debut release, this is of a strong standard and his voice is really strong and hits all the right notes.

Here is the Spotify link to hear this time-filled song.

Mari – Natural Desires: Evocatively Absolving Acoustic Pop Rock

Natural Desires was the 2019 debut single from up and coming Pop singer-songwriter Mari. If the release slipped you by, there’s no better time to delve into her evocatively powerful sound. With an EP in the works, there are plenty more powerful soundscapes to come.

Following the success of Natural Desires, Mari released two subsequent singles Wrong Places and End Up with You. Yet, Natural Desires remains the best introduction to her frill-free, soulfully arrestive sound which manages to ooze both purity and maturity.

Rather than attempting to stay ahead of the curve, with Natural Desires, Mari took her sound right back to the roots of Pop Rock to ensure instant accessibility. As for the commercial potential, that can be found in her natural vocal harmonies which will stay with you long after the light and tender single has faded to a close.
