Deanna DeMola has released her powerful new perception-shifting Alt Pop single “Next Generation”

Pop singer-songwriter Deanna DeMola has just released her most compelling single to date with “Next Generation”. With her latest release, she tells the cynics, the doubters and the bitterly ageing populations just how the next generation is going to run the world.

With absolutely no hint of exaggeration (as a millennial) I can say that I’m infinitely more assured about our future which will soon be in hands of the next generation. The tone and the vibe behind Next Generation are just phenomenal, Deanna DeMola took a strong, levelled and unapologetic approach while also gently asking for understanding instead of seeking more conflict.

If you’re able to tear yourself away from the lyrics, you’ll find a stunning Indie Shoegaze-infused semi-orchestral arrangement behind the flawless notes in Deanna DeMola’s vocals. I honestly couldn’t love this single more, not only is it flawlessly radio-ready, but it also has the power to dilute some of the rage and anxiety which seems all too prevalent in our society.

Will Dailey has dropped their independently produced infectiously enrapturing latest single “Miss Seattle”

US Singer, Songwriter and Producer Will Dailey dropped their latest sticky-sweet Pop single “Miss Seattle” as July grew to a close and served up the ultimate Summer Pop taste breaker.

If plastic Pop isn’t for you, prepare yourself for a viscerally romantic adorably indulgent soundscape when you hit play.

The amorously sincere Indie Pop earworm packs in plenty of smooth grooves and an even more potent helping of straight-from-the-soul emotion. Miss Seattle may have been independently produced, but Will Dailey still achieved a radio-ready sound through cooking up infectiously enrapturing melodies and pairing them with their endearingly accessible Future Pop vocals.

Alise Ashby has released their powerful new Pop Ballad “Gotta Learn to Love” featuring Gabriela Martina

From the first few baroque notes in the award-winning composer and songwriter Alise Ashby’s latest semi-orchestral single “Gotta Learn to Love” featuring the vocals of Gabriela Martina, I was transfixed. The cinematic release is resounding in every possible way.

The pandemic and lockdown gave the world an opportunity to better themselves on a global scale. I was filled with naïve optimism that humans would start to act through empathy, love and compassion instead of hate and fear. Yet, we seem to be moving in the exact opposite direction. Alise Ashby’s latest single is a powerful (in more ways than one) reminder that we can only progress as a society if we learn to love, not just romantically, but to extend that love to the rest of the world. If they won’t listen to Gabriela Martina’s vocals, we may be doomed.

Pop artist Brianna Marie has released her strikingly atmospheric sophomore single “Losing Friends”

https://music.apple.com/us/album/losing-friends/1522401315?i=1522401317

After a successful debut, Brianna Marie has released her striking sophomore single “Losing Friends” which captures the intensity of the emotions felt when friends become strangers.

You’ll find countless lovelorn singles about problematic romantic relationships. Yet, many artists never even think to address the torrid emotions which can manifest when we lose friends. Brianna Marie’s second single is real talk, and I can imagine that many listeners will find plenty of resonance in the moody yet compellingly evocative feat of contemporary Pop.

There is a myriad of arrestingly distinction features in Brianna Marie’s sound. The most tangible is her uniquely resounding vocal approach which amplifies the emotion in the soundscape instead of masking it.

You can check out Brianna Marie’s single Losing Friends via apple music and Spotify.

For her debut solo single Love’s on the Run, Arielle Eden released an empoweringly uplifting feat of 80s inspired Pop which is sure to be a hit with any Madonna fans.

With choruses which will stick to your synapses like superglue and Arielle Eden’s alluringly soulful approach to Pop, its impossible not to connect with the up-vibe love song.

With the funky synth lines, bendy grooves of the bass and the extremely nuanced choppy guitar progressions, there’s a retro air to Love’s on the Run, but with the fresh exuberance in Arielle Eden’s vocals, you couldn’t ask for a fresher radio-ready Pop earworm.

Jack Lyon has released their heartbreakingly bitter-sweet Indie Trap Pop single “100 Calls”

Breaking artist Jack Lyon has recently released their third single “100 Calls”. Prepare to fall in love with the heartbreakingly bitter-sweet Indie Trap Pop hit.

Along with the familiar sound of the solid 808s, there are intricately absorbing guitar notes adding to the depth and the emotion of the soundscape which is already intensely evocative thanks to Jack Lyon’s vocals and the humility-soaked lyrics.

100 Calls may be tonally light, but the stark, poignant and all too relatable regret which was projected into the mix hits hard. Perceptibly, Jack Lyon held nothing back in any aspect of the orchestration in 100 Calls. He’s exactly the kind of connectable and expressive artist we need on the airwaves right now. We’re already stoked to hear what comes next.

Teddy Roric reminds pop fans that wealth doesn’t always come from money with “Rich in My Mind”

German Pop artist Teddy Roric has released their most uplifting single yet with “Rich in My Mind” which brings brand-new meaning to the term contemporary Pop.

Since lockdown started, there seems to have been a shift away from the fascination of the rich and famous. Naturally, this means Pop fans wouldn’t be all too impressed by artists lyrically and visually flaunting their financial privilege. Rich in My Mind makes the irony of Pop artists trying to make resonant music while offering nothing relatable even starker.

If you’re looking for an aural pick me up which serves as a poignant reminder to see the value in what matters, look no further than this infectiously radio-ready retro Pop hit.

You have a feeling in the back of your mind that you will however always be that 2nd option. Can you accept this or can you move on quickly? You feel pushed away but keep on walking through the door nevertheless. This isn’t healthy but love makes you do crazy things.

No Ideals” is perfect for those Sunday road trips and for meditation. This is a smooth song that is consistent and I love the melodies. Monarc is a new artist and a fresh new sound filters through just in time to help distract us from normal life.
