As the potent lyrical hooks snare you, the beat progress matching the ferocity of the UK based artists expressively resonant vocal style. One things for sure, once Things Will Change fades to a close it will stay with you long after for more reasons than one.

Cynthia Poteau – Hell’s Road: Ambiently Smoothing, Melancholically Arresting Pop

Not many up and coming artists possess the ability to stamp own their style with such distinction with their first single, yet, it just so happens that Cynthia Poteau is not your average Pop artist.  “Hell’s Road” is the debut track released by the singer-songwriter who laces her sound with equal amounts of ambience and melancholy for the ultimate experience in aural catharsis. The soothing tonality in the dynamics of her vocals amplifies the emotion behind the pensively penned vocals whilst the subtle and simple beat tentatively edges towards the all too soon sudden ending of the single. At 2:24-minutes long, the track is the perfect teaser to what we can expect to hear from Cynthia Poteau in 2019 – here’s to hoping the next release is already in the pipeline.

Sunny Birla – Maybe This Summer: Introspectively Ingenious Pop

“Maybe This Summer” is the perfect introduction to the up and coming Indie Pop artist Sunny Birla’s deeply relatable approach to melody-driven Pop. The introspective within the lyrics will either drive you into an existential hole or inspire, there’s no in between thanks to the ingenuity within the lyricism. With lines such as “our days are numbered, but I’ve stopped counting” and the textured raw and emotive delivery of the vocals to Maybe This Summer you’re in for an emotive aural experience the moment you hit play.

To find a Pop artist who pours this much soul into his soundscapes isn’t something you encounter all too often, so if you’re looking for an artist whose expression is as poignant as artists such as the National, Editors and Interpol, you’re in for a treat.

The BellyLoaders’ Latest Infectiously Sweet Pop Track “PaperPlanes”

PaperPlanes is the latest release from the Pop artist and producer The BellyLoaders which unfolds through uplifting energy, euphoric rhythm and hypnotically organic and expressively vocals which have no use for autotune. Rather than just create an archetypal Pop beat, for PaperPlanes the BellyLoaders infused elements of Trap and Progressive House atop of the concordance of the keys. Sadly, the production quality of PaperPlanes means that it’s not the easiest single to blast on your headphones, yet, that’s not to say the future doesn’t look promising for the US-based song writing and production team. With their ability to orchestrate deep hooks and infectiously sweet melodies, the BellyLoaders are clearly capable of creating Pop earworms.

Kate Ransom – Louisiana: The Prodigal Daughter of Jazz-Laced Pop

If you could imagine an aural mash up of Radiohead and Lady Gaga’s sounds with a few Jazz notes thrown in, you’d get pretty close to getting an idea of how Kate Ransoms latest single “Louisiana” unfolds. The arrestive emotive edge to her sound, combined with the amped up energy the artist pours into her performance with Louisiana are just two reasons why you’ll be wanting to put Kate Ransom on your radar. It’s instantaneously perceptible that Kate Ransom created her latest single to defy genre constraints to create something which allowed her to stamp down her signature unapologetically fierce style. She may be the youngest singer songwriter we’ve reviewed in 2018, yet what she lacks in age she more than makes up for with her undeniable command of her vocal range.

ALIX’s Latest Album of Sultry Pop Earworms “Since ‘96″

With her latest album “Since ‘96”, Pop newcomer ALIX has created a demure, yet authoritatively immersive array of beats with a sultry urban edge. While the tracks may flirt with plenty of genres, they all carry the same deep and moodily hypnotic catharsis which makes it all too easy to fall into ALIX’s contemporarily fresh approach to Pop.

It would seem that along the way Pop stars forgot hot to carry sex appeal, but you’ll only need to hear the raw and organic dynamics of ALIX’s vocal range to remember how sex and the Pop industry started their perpetual relationship. Each of the singles runs with its own distinctive allure with plenty of switch ups in tempo and moods. If you’re looking for a skippable track on the album, you won’t find one.

Vanja & Rui’s Chemistry-Driven Latest Pop Single “Always”

The warm tonality of the first few notes to the latest track from Vanja & Rui is enough to leave you instantaneously enamoured at the Pop duo’s arrestive aural chemistry in their latest single “Always”.

Any fans of bands such as the National and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are sure to appreciate the male and female vocals seamlessly resonating with one another over the acoustic instrumental arrangements. The light notes of the piano blend with the flawless timing of the concordant drum rhythms, and if that wasn’t enough the subtle pulls of the piano strings which become more prominent through the mix gives the track an extra cinematic edge. While there are Folk elements to Always, the flawless production of the well-rounded track brings the hypnotically emotive single right back into the Pop arena.

The Ntwrk – Today: Rhythmically Hypnotic Genre-Mashing Pop

Off the heels of the success of their debut single “Famous” the Ntwrk have released their second single “Today” and once again, they’ve given Pop fans something which sits right on the contemporary curve.

The Los Angeles four-piece powerhouse formed earlier in 2018 with each member bringing their own brand of expressionism to the aural table. As a result, their latest single Today, as with their first single blends elements of Pop with Hip Hop and R&B. The sultry and deeply resonant layers of the track fit together for a seamlessly hypnotic soundscape – even around the glitchy breakbeats. Rather than just using their music as a platform to share a sentiment or feeling, the Ntwrk utilise their sound to connect with their already international fanbase. The commercial potential behind the Ntwrk is already concordantly obvious.

Scarlett – Mr Nowhere: Unapologetically Outspoken Bad

Whilst up and coming singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and self-producer Scarlett set the bar high with her debut single “BITE”, off the heels of her success she created yet another stunning single. The single proves that even though the 17 year old artist has her own distinctive style, that doesn’t mean that her sound isn’t infinitely accessible.

“Mr Nowhere” is the second single to be released which proves the dynamic talent of the unapologetically outspoken artist. With Mr Nowhere, you’re treated to a softer, yet just as sonorous soundscape which contains organic, raw emotion. At 2:11- minutes long the single may be short and sweet, but the haunted atmospherics will stay with you long after the single has faded out.
