Pop Singer Songwriter MILENA Prepares us For her Upcoming Album with Her Latest Release

London-based up and coming artist MILENA released their latest Classic Pop single “I Won’t Give Up on February 10th, 2019 and it is the perfect introduction to her emotively textured sound.

If you’re expecting your average Pop hit, prepare to be very disappointed by the entrancing and seemingly contrasting elements to MILENA’s style. Not content with creating archetypal beats, MILENA ensured that her creatively prodigal vision was brought to life with I Won’t Give Up. Expect Arabian rhythms laced within the singer and songwriter’s most heartfelt single released to date. The slightly archaic vibrant beats were matched with an electronic arrangement to give the track plenty of depth and a contemporary feel.

Jamie Dance – Lullaby: Sweet Dreams are Made from Pop Debuts Like These

London-based up and coming Pop artist Jamie Dance has recently made his debut with his powerful EDM Pop ballad “Lullaby”. With a sentiment which kicks even harder than the 808s it has every potential of becoming your new Pop earworm, especially with the sticky-sweet choruses, anthemic build ups and fuzzy reverberant bass lines.

While there’s absolutely no disputing the fact that Jamie Dance is an exceptionally talented songwriter, vocalist and producer, there were a few hit and miss elements to his debut single. Kicking off the single with gratingly high autotuned non lexical vocables to introduce as a moody Pop hit definitely wasn’t the best move – especially when Jamie Dance’s vocals hold their own so well. Nonetheless, Lullaby was still a promising debut, and the evolution of his style is going to be well worth listening to.

Pop Gets a Face Lift with Themazwebypass’s Latest Single “Front Line”

There are very few tracks which hit you with a strong sense of endearment in the prelude, but the latest single from themazwebypass does exactly that.

“Front Line” was never created to easily fit within genre constraints. Instead, it’s perceptible that Front Line was written and produced to exude nothing but quaintly resonant feel-good vibes.

The track perfectly blends elements of Future Pop with a subtle amount of urban rhythm, and while the beat to Front Line is smooth and seamless, it’s the vocals which make the track. While they may not be the strongest Pop vocals you’ve ever heard, there is plenty of appeal in the raw expressive style. Combine that with the vibrancy of the beat and the honesty of the lyrics, and you’ve got a radio-ready hit.

Lesse’s Debut Single “The Ghost” is the Perfect Addition to Your Power Pop Ballad Playlists

Up and coming artist Lesse created a melancholic masterpiece with his latest single “The Ghost”. The stark pensive agony which has been written into the powerful Pop ballad was the perfect debut single to establish himself as a talented artist. Put it this way, if artists got to the top of the charts based on vocal strength – he’d already be at the top.

Palpable amounts of passion got poured into his debut single, such candid lyricism paired with the strength in the vocals and no one would blame you if you shed a tear during the agonizingly sweet single.

The progression in the instrumentals adds to the already immersive allure of the Ghost, from thunderous drum rolls, to wavy synth lines to minimalist arrangements on the keys the alchemic single has it all.

Amber Snider – I Will Be True: Archaically Arrestive Pop

Tackling a 1960s inspired Pop hit could only be accomplished with a pitch-perfect command of harmony, and that’s exactly what up and coming artist Amber Snider brought to the table with her latest single “I Will Be True”. With a vocal capacity with the ability to reverberate through you combined with archaically arrestive Pop melodies it isn’t very likely that you will be able to find another current artist creating the same soulfully nostalgic sound.

Even though the track was brought out in November 2018 it carries plenty of the mesmeric capacity of Pop songs from decades past, with no reliance on auto tune to ensure that the vocals find the perfect position within the mix. Instead, Amber Snider’s vocals feed into the fairly simplistic yet infinitely immersive Country Blues style instrumental arrangement.

Abigail Jerri – Let’s Play: Reggae Rhythm With a Pop Polish & A Pinch of Prog House

Summer may not be here quite yet, but that’s no reason we can’t prepare ourselves for it with sun-soaked beats such as Abigail Jerri ’s latest single “Let’s Play”.

With Let’s Play you are treated to a smooth mix of Reggae and Pop which all pulls together as a melodic work of uplifting rhythm. There is no better introduction to Abigail Jerri ’s arrestive approach to Pop than Let’s Play which packs in plenty of salacity around the feel-good vibes of the single. With an already radio-ready production behind Abigail’s releases it’s all but impossible to imagine that she will be an up and coming for much longer’; she’s definitely already arrived. With a natural vocal talent, ability to create an instantly accessible track, and a soulful charisma, there’s not much that can stand in the way of Abigail Jerri ’s future commercial success.

Soulov – Rose: Soulfully Plaintive Minimalistic R&B Pop

With the pure amount of passion and expression poured into Soulov’s latest single “Rose”, the track becomes a lot more than just lyrics, a beat, and vocals. Rose is one of the most sublimely sonorous offerings of unrestrained soul we’ve heard in a long time and to tear the heartfelt apart based on the structure seems nothing but butchery.

As the track is only two minutes long, you’re left with the impression that Soulav has much more to give to his audience with his slow and melodic Trap arrangements in longer arrangments. It takes a lot for an artist to step to the mic and put out so much visceral emotion, Yet with Rose, you’re doused in the pensive vibes which give out an aural lifeline to anyone who can relate to the resonance which has been weaved into the lyrics.

Kelly Rose – Enough: A Smoothly Mesmeric Pop Hit Which Won’t Fail to Resonate

They say at the greatest time of societal and political struggle the best music is born, and you only have to look to Kelly Rose’s latest single “Enough” to see just how true that statement is.

While Childish Gambino addressed political disparity in an entirely different way to Kelly Rose, the fact that the striking lyricism is placed down on a platform of haunting minimalist electro pop made the message behind enough even more hard-hitting. It’s hard not to pay attention to an up and coming Pop artist who is using her platform as an attack on an unjust societal discourse.

The single was released ahead of its intended release date in November 2018 after the shootings in America. If there’s any artist who you should be paying attention to right now, it’s the artist driven away from skirting around issues of superficiality using her smoothly mesmeric vocals in the hope that her message will find resonance.

Matteo Palmer – Golden: Acoustically-Driven R&B Pop

The inclusion of acoustic instrumentals in a R&B Pop track is never an unwelcome addition, especially if the artist is able to bring a new organic vibrancy to the mix through the intricately textured guitar progressions.

Which is exactly what you get with Matteo Palmer’s single “Golden”; just one of the tracks to feature on his 2019 album Stratosphere. To make Golden even more of an arresting track, Matteo teamed up with J’mere who brought a new vocal dynamic to the single giving Matteo Palmer’s charisma something to bounce off. The instrumental mix may be soft and down tempo, but the acoustic fingerstyle guitar still pulls you further into the arrangement which packs in plenty of groove which is neatened by the polished Pop production.

REA – Show Me: Contemporary Pop from Classically-Trained Breaking Talent

The first thing which will hit you about the up and coming Pop artist REA’s latest single “Show Me” is the is the pure power contained in her vocal ability. While she starts off with a vocal style remarkably reminiscent of Lady Gaga, by the time you get to the chorus you get a true taste for the true individuality within her vocal style.

It should come as no surprise that the London-based singer and multi-instrumentalist found her vocal dominance through classical training, REA may have moved away from her classical roots to create a more contemporary Pop sound. Yet, her hard work paid off through the sheer talent found in her vocal command which can capture the arresting energy and emotion behind her lyricism. If you’re looking for a powerful Pop ballad, look no further.
