The China Blue has unleashed their latest Synthpop Earworm Always on My Mind

US artist and producer The China Blue has recently dropped their most evocatively hypnotic Synthpop single yet with Always on My Mind.

With the euphoric vibe, the hazy yet intricate production and the level of atmosphere weaved into the Pop hit, don’t be surprised if the perennial Pop earworm worms its way onto your contemporary Synthpop playlists after the first hit.

The up and coming artist may have borrowed an element or two from 80s Synthpop with the retro synth lines, but Always on My Mind doesn’t just hit the contemporary mark, it glides right past it thanks to the tangible ingenuity which The China Blue used to orchestrate this sweetly amorous soul-steeped single.

Olivia Rees – Darker Night: Viscerally Compelling Alt Trap Pop

Pop singer-songwriter Olivia Rees has recently released her phenomenal Alt Pop hit Darker Night. Expect to be hit with full-frontal emotion, viscerally compelling lyrics and hypnotically atmospheric electronic instrumentals.

It’s strikingly meta lines such as “I lost myself when I looked for you” which puts Olivia Rees’ striking style leagues apart from any other up and coming Pop artist in 2020. With a nuanced infusion of Hip Hop in the rhythmically arrestive beats and plenty of bite behind her vocals, Darker Night is as distinctive as it is captivating.

It’s tangibly clear that Olivia Rees never set out to assimilate with this passion-soaked hit. It oozes with authentic creative ingenuity.

Sinikka Monte has pushed forward the evolution of Pop with her latest sultry Indie earworm “Play Pretend”

Play Pretend” is the latest resonantly mesmeric Pop single from up and coming Austria-based artist Sinikka Monte.

If you’re taking names of the artists in possession of the voice of the new generation, you’ll want Sinikka Monte’s name at the top of that list. The Indie Pop hit transcends archetypal moody Pop with a passion-soaked delivery of unfiltered and unapologetic emotion while keeping the sound stylish and radio-worthy. There’s a smorgasbord of it on show, making it all too easy to warm to Sinikka Monte’s resoundingly arrestive sound.

Sinikka Monte may be fresh from her inception, but there’s already an irreplicable maturity to her sound which won’t be easily ignored. Get her on your radar now. She’ll end up in your ears one way or another.

You can check out the official video to Sinikka Monte’s single Play Pretend which dropped on June 19th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.
