Culture Code – More Than Words: Piercing Lyricism Paired with Ethereally Compelling Indie Pop

https://soundcloud.com/artistserve/culture-code-more-than-words-feat-rory/s-lgcUO

“More Than Words” is the latest single from breaking artist Culture Code who are no strangers to creating emotively piercing progressive Pop soundscapes.

For their latest release they teamed up with vocalist RØRY who provided the perfect vocal dynamic to allow the depth of the lyrics to leave your head just above the flood of energy contained within this single.

With a prelude similar to what you could expect from Youth or Tom Odell, More than Words teases an ambience which the chorus soon tears through. The track steadily gains in momentum until it offers plenty of euphoria in the outro. The ambient electro is disturbed through the almost primal drum rhythms as the track picks up in anthemics which are amplified by the veracity of RØRY’s celestially powerful vocals.

You’ll have to wait a little bit longer before you can check out More than Words for yourselves, but in the meantime you can head on over to Spotify and check out their earlier releases

Adelamonica Serves Up Vibrant Rhythm with Her Latest Track “Yeah I Know You’re Better Than Me”

Up and coming artist Adelamonica has managed to create plenty of hype around the release of her upcoming single “Yeah I Know You’re Better Than Me” which is is one of the 13 tracks on the  newly released album “Delusions of Grandeur”. The teaser track hit us with a short and sweet 30 seconds of the level of rhythm we will be able to appreciate when the track drops.

The Antigua-born, US-based artist has cooked up a sun-soaked Afro beat storm with the single which sounds worlds apart from her previous releases which were all slightly on the melancholic ballad side. Yet, with Yeah I Know You’re Better Than Me, you really couldn’t ask for more vivid energetic track! One thing that does remain as a constant is Adelamonica’s distinctive vocals, while they may be feeding anthemics instead of pensive emotion into this track, they’re still absolutely unmistakable.

You can check out the teaser for Adelamonica’s upcoming single Yeah I know You’re Better Than Me for yourselves by heading over to her official website where you’ll also be able to check out her previously released tracks.

SHAK – Touch: The Prodigal Son of Future Pop Returns With Their Second Single

“Touch” is the second official release from the up and coming artist who is welcoming in a new era of Pop with his uniquely stylised sound.

Through a mix of R&B, Pop and Hip Hop his second single was born. Even with the level of intricacy contained within the Trap style beat, the R&B influence brings cathartic layers of smooth rhythm while the Pop style production is the absolute icing on the cake for accessibility. While there have been plenty of artists who have attempted to weave those genres together before, there’s something distinctively alchemic about the way Touch runs through. While the single is fairly romantic, the sentiment resonates with sincerity instead of being in any danger of coming across as a bit of a guilty pleasure.

Noella Usborne Makes Her Pop Debut With Her Perfectly Polished Indie Hit “Unrequited”

Noella Usborne has made one of the most promising debuts we’ve heard this year with her Indie Pop single “Unrequited”. While in many Pop soundscapes you’ll find sterility, excessive use of autotune, and uninspired lyrics, Noella Usborne has treated us to a charismatic perennial earworm that will be all too tempting to keep on loop.

The up and coming singer songwriter may have started out as a bedroom artist, but it’s clear that she possesses the talent and the distinction of an artist who belongs on stage as well as on club DJs playlists. Noella Usborne may just have the safest pair of hands to leave the future of Pop in. Her ability to construct sharp hooks combined with her easy, accessible vocal style has us all too excited about what we will hear from her in the future.

Phoenix Jakob – Somewhere Man: A Debut of Ethereally Mesmeric Pop

Phoenix Jakob provided us with the perfect introduction to his style and talent with his debut “Somewhere Man”. Everyone knows the industry is swamped, and finding true talent is harder than finding a needle in a haystack, but thankfully, every now and again you discover a talent so perceptibly celestial that it’s hard to remember why you found any despair in the industry. Which is just what we found with Phoenix Jakob’s debut.

With little use for a prelude, the track kicks off by introducing you to the arrestive vocals which act as an instant hook into the track which offers a smorgasbord of melody. Yet the striking orchestral layers to the single never allow you to feel comfortable instead of captivated.

We’re already in anticipation of the next track from the enviably talented up and coming artist. With such potent vocal magnetism, it’s unlikely he’ll be considered ‘up and coming’ for long.

SpaceBoy – HeartBright: Infectiously Inter-galactic Pop

https://youtu.be/ttah_7b-534

Some artist’s names leave you with the best impression of their sound. And with a title such as SpaceBoy you’re all set up for a hit of futuristic electronica. But instead, you’re left with a punchy EDM Pop hit which you never anticipated. But that’s not to say we weren’t enthralled by the up and coming artist’s latest single “HeartBright”. The single serves as the perfect introduction to SpaceBoy’s vibrantly immersive style which boasts a solid structure, and most importantly infectious melodies which you won’t be quick to forget.

Even though the single may not take you through the darkest voids of space, it is still a strong contender for the most danceable Pop track we’ve heard this year.

You can check out the debut record HeartBright from SpaceBoy for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.

MIHIR – Perfectly Lonely ft Cadence: An Emotively Concordant Pop Playlist Essential

With his latest release “Perfectly Lonely”, MIHIR found the perfect balance between an affective ballad and euphoric Pop hit.

The tempo may be left slow with the melody-driven mix, yet that doesn’t mean that you don’t feel the surges of energy and emotion which came with each subtle and intricate build up in the mix. That’s one sure fire way that Perfectly Lonely let you know that you’re intrinsically immersed in a track.

With the celestially pitch-perfect vocals coming from Cadence, Perfectly Lonely resonates as an accessible hit which has every potential of becoming your future perennial Pop earworm. With the radio-ready production paired with MIHIR’s ability to construct a concordant masterpiece of a soundscape it’s impossible not to anticipate big things in the future for the breaking artist.

Melody Reyne – Wet Dreams: Sun-Soaked Unapologetically Salacious Pop

“Wet Dreams” is the latest single to be released from Atlanta-based Pop Singer Songwriter Melody Reyne who has already established herself through her unapologetically attitude-driven style in her former releases. While many Pop artists may like to play up images of vulnerability, Melody Reyne has ran in a totally different direction with her beats which are packed with sun-soaked salacity and empowerment.

The Afrobeat rhythms and deep reverberant basslines infuse an infinite amount of flavour into the Pop soundscape. Yet as much as I appreciated the vibrancy and the energy of the beats in Wet Dreams, it was impossible to truly appreciate Melody Reyne’s vocal talent due to the vocal effects which didn’t allow them to flow naturally. Instead, there was a perceptibly glitchy feel to the vocals which detracted from the lyrical delivery.

NTG – LIAR: The Radio-Ready Perennial Earworm That You’ll Need on Your Radar!

Enjoying Pop hits to the extent that we did with LIAR usually comes with a slight tinge of guilt. However, NTG AKA Natalie Taylor Gray poured so much unapologetic attitude, style and charisma into her upcoming single that it will only register your next perennial earworm and never as a guilty pleasure.

You’ll be hard pressed to find sharper hooks than what’s contained within the anthemic single, which the North London-based artist lays down her dynamic vocal style within. Just as the beat switches up in momentum NTG switches between keys to make sure you are truly immersed in the single. There’re absolutely no complaints when it comes to production quality, so crank it up and drink in the fiercely fresh hit.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out LIAR for yourselves, but in the meantime you can head on over to the artist’s Facebook page and join in the anticipation for the drop. I wouldn’t be surprised if LIAR doesn’t find you on the Radio Waves first!
