Courtney Moore Releases Her Latest R&B Pop Single “Spitefool”

“Spitefool” is the recently released genre-mashing single from up and coming Indie R&B Pop artist Courtney Moore. The uniquely soulful single has found the perfect balance of EDM, Trap, Soul, Pop, and Jazz which allows Courtney Moore’s sound to boast a distinctive feel.

There’s a powerfully confrontational vibe behind Spitefool which is going to provide plenty of catharsis to anyone experiencing the frustrative feeling of being taken for a fool. As much as we appreciated the empowering hit, the rough production on Spitefool slightly hindered the resonance. But it’s safe to say that Courtney Moore has the lyrical flair, vocal talent, and pioneering experimentalism which will see her go far in her career.

TAELA – Dance Drink Repeat: Tribally Rhythmic Moody Dance Pop

“Dance Drink Repeat” may only be the second single released by breaking EDM Pop artist TAELA. But they have already won over plenty of Pop fans with their rhythmically flawless sound.

If the top 40 was based on vocal talent alone, you’d find TAELA’s name close to the top. But instead of going with the usual ecstatically abrasive Pop vocal style, she’s incorporated a slightly melancholic sensibility around the danceable euphoria which spills from Dance Drink Repeat.

For all too long we’ve had to ingest Pop that is produced under the pretence that anyone hits the club or the bottle without some kind of niggling sadness creeping into their psyche. But Dance Drink Repeat perfectly alludes to how lonely it can feel to be surrounded by party vibes when you’re drinking to forget. It’s a hard-hitter in every way possible.

Anna Cole – No Regrets: Flawlessly Nuanced Pop

Breaking Pop artist Anna Cole may only be 14 years old, but her infectiously upbeat anthemic Pop style boasts the same maturity (if not more) of artists who have been producing for decades.

Anna Cole has recently dropped her latest vibrantly playlist-worthy single “No Regrets” which brings plenty of danceable rhythm while making no compromises to the lyrical depth. The beats may bleed aural ecstasy, but the vocals also prove to be a good vibe necessity as they perpetually feed palpable euphoria into the mix.

A flawlessly nuanced vocal range isn’t required to create a perennial Pop earworm, but as No Regrets proved, it definitely helps. Good luck getting the chorus out of your head.

You can check out the official music video to Anna Cole’s single No Regrets which dropped on August 15th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.

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.

Pop Meets R&B in Debrah Jade’s Latest Sensually Progressive Single “Voodoo”

Up and coming R&B Pop artist Debrah Jade dropped her debut single in 2018. Since then, she’s been working with award-winning producers to develop her slick and modern sound which she’s quickly becoming renowned for. Such as you will find in their latest single “Voodoo” which was released on October 25th.

The alchemy runs right through the delicate and intricate soundscape which deftly utilises spatial effects to put plenty of suspense behind the single.

Progressive tracks and R&B don’t often go hand in hand, but Debrah Jade has proved that when they do, R&B becomes more arrestive than ever. There was no way of anticipating a soulfully bluesy electric guitar riff to be thrown into the mix (I’ve kind of ruined the surprise there). But when the guitar solo hits, you’ll get a taste of Debrah Jade’s commitment to creating unpredictably immersive contemporary R&B Pop.

Evenal Has Dropped Their Latest Moody Pop Trap Single “Fatality”

Billie Eilish may be the poster girl of moody Pop right now. But up and coming Alt Pop artist Evenal is making some pretty dark waves of their own which are going to plash onto your radar sooner rather than later. It’s only a matter of time.

Their recently released Pop Trap single “Fatality” ft Wilfresh is as sultry is as it is ominous. And it’s not every day you can say that about a breaking artist’s work. But everything about Fatality comes together to offer an atmospheric allure which you’re more accustomed to hearing from more established artists.

The concordance of the beat is only matched by Evenal’s flawlessly magnetic vocals which run through the verses in a poised, deadpan style against the downtempo Trap beats. Fatality is as fresh as Pop gets,

 Claire Beverly – Trainwreck: Americana Country-Rooted Rock Pop

Within Claire Beverly’s standout single “Trainwreck” Pop, Country, and Hard Rock combine with a brand-new magnetism. The filthy guitar progressions create the perfect contrasting platform for Claire Beverly’s ethereal vocals to pour harmony from and the lyrics make it all too easy to find the soul in the soundscape.

With Slash-style atmospheric guitar riffs and Claire Beverly’s nuanced Rock Pop vocals which find a rare balance of poise and power, Trainwreck is an unforgettable hit.

Ultimately, Trainwreck a sign of aural evolution. It’s not all too often you get to hear Country-style rhythms played with the veracity of High-Octane Rock on electric guitar, but Claire Beverly executed Trainwreck with deft execution. If Taylor Swift was as alternative as she thinks she is, her music would offer the same raucous tone as you will find in this gem of a single.

Iris – Frozen Hearts: A Chilling Contemporary Pop Ballad

LA-based breaking Pop artist Iris has recently released her latest single “Frozen Hearts”. In doing so, she shared a chilling moody Pop ballad with the airwaves which may just force you to contemplate the temperature of your own soul.

Iris’ stylistic take on the Classic Pop ballad breathes new life into a familiar soundscape, but most importantly, Frozen Hearts contains plenty of unadulterated emotion which won’t fail to leave you captivated. Iris’ striking vocals also play a heavy hand in ensuring that this single isn’t one which will be easily forgotten when it has gently faded to a close. The drum beats in the prelude disturbed the pensive downtempo melody slightly and seemed a little out of time, but from there on out, Frozen Hearts is a flawless hit.

With up and coming Alt Pop artist Nir Kay’s latest single “I Saw It Coming” there’s a sweet juxtaposition of Pop styles which allows Pop to undergo a brand-new evolution while immersing you in familiar vintage tones.

The instantly accessible single offers punchy modern Jangle Pop melodies alongside the nostalgia of 80s Power Pop ballads. Nir Kay teamed up with Nicole Swiecka to borrow her deft vocals, and they proved to be the perfect fit for the soulful instrumentals which served up plenty of Funk and groove in the Synth Pop hit. I Saw It Coming carries some reminiscences to 80s icons such as Madonna, but Nir Kay’s sound is well and truly their own.

Ksenia Releases Her Latest Empowering Pop Hit “Keep Walking”

The single may only be Ksenia’s second original release, but there’s no shortage of hype around the atmospheric radio-ready hit which oozes contemporary appeal whilst incorporating faint elements of 90s Pop. If you’re a fan of the TLC “No Scrubs” vibe, you’re definitely going to want to check out Keep Walking.

Ksenia’s striking vocals are one thing, but it is the unfaltering confidence and passion put behind the lyrical delivery which sets this apart. It also helps that the single has the perfect polished production.
