Dakota Chappy – Right There: Entrancingly Danceable, Mindfully Inspired EDM Pop

Every once in awhile, it’s possible that you’ll stumble across a track which offers massive beats and an even more sizeable serving of soul. That’s just what we delved into when Electronic Pop artist Dakota Chappy appeared on our radar.

The strikingly talented vocalist dropped her latest entrancingly danceable yet mindfully inspired single “Right There” on March 4th. If you want to raise your vibration, strap on a pair of headphones and experience the vibrancy of the upraised radio-ready single.

There will undoubtedly be bigger and more refreshingly absolving music to come from Dakota Chappy. So, we’d suggest that you follow our lead and firmly affix her to your radars.

You can check out the official music video to Dakota Chappy’s latest single via YouTube.

Billy Mick releases new single Take It As It Comes

Billy Mick has released his track ‘’Take It As It Comes’’. With a variety of sounds from Country, Hip-Hop and Pop, he has created something that gets you feeling good.

With an up-lifting rhythm and a cheerful atmosphere to go along with it, not to mention the crazy amounts of energy that is injected into it. Billy sure knows how to take his audience by surprise, at first you’d think it’d be more a 80’s classic hit, with the use of synthesizers, gated snares and programmed beats, the synth of the song leads you into many dimensions and that’s why this one needs to be added to your playlist.

But then this full on Country sound comes rolling in and combines with that 80’s throwback style, a rather diverse mixture but one that works so incredibly well together.

Billy Micks has completely delved into music in such a positive manor, not being afraid to mix it up and rather than modernising his sound to be more up to date with this day and age, he instead wanted to hook his audience in and send them back on a journey through time and it’s so mesmerising to listen too.

Jordo Ingle – That Door: Soul-Achingly Arrestive Alt Folk Pop

https://open.spotify.com/track/3a1UG4GyY13NZEQAVq6y0D

Up and coming Alt Indie Folk artist Jordo Ingle’s latest single That Door is soul-achingly arrestive. From the moment you’re exposed to the vibrancy of the tone, the energy in the intricately enthralling rhythms, and Jordo Ingle’s distinctively uplifting vocals, you’ll be hooked.

The electronic instrumentals may give That Door a contemporary appeal, yet, the artist has gone right back to the roots of music production by providing aural escapism which also shares a unique lyrical perspective.

That Door demands repeat attention. And you definitely won’t feel begrudging while you give in to the demands of this soulfully beguiling earworm.

You can check out Jordo Ingle’s single That Door which was released alongside the equally as mesmerising single Take My Hand via Spotify now.

Julie Bouchard bares her soul in her evocatively compelling latest Indie Folk Pop single “Why”

Not all artists possess the ability to instantaneously pull you into a narrative which you’ll be invested in from the first verse to the last. Perceptibly, Julie Bouchard has been granted with that natural talent. The proof lies in her lyrically and melodically captivating latest single.

Her latest radio-ready single “Why” is a soundscape filled with fraught frustration and inspiringly tensile optimism which won’t fail to resonate.

This Indie Folk Pop ballad is the ultimate testament of the Austin, Texas-based singer songwriter’s commercial potential. Indie Folk doesn’t often come as cinematically powerful as Why. There may be a potent serving of raw pensive soul, but once you get to the outro, you will undoubtedly feel uplifted.

Susie Jones – Emmeline: Hauntingly Sonorous Indie Acoustic Folk

https://susiejonesband.bandcamp.com/track/emmeline

Manchester Singer-Songwriter Susie Jones has stripped Indie Acoustic Folk right back to its roots with the quiescently powerful single “Emmeline”.

The instrumentals may be minimalistic, but that just leaves more room for the sonorous vocals to resonate within the soundscape.

Rather than constructing your average track following archetypal songwriting structures, Susie Jones utilises the power of improvisation to orchestrate a truly captivating aural experience.

Time may as well stand still while you are listening to Emmeline. It drips serenity whilst abstracting you from your own introspection, although your emotive responses will be well and truly present.

Emmeline is just one of the accordantly haunting singles which you’ll find on Susie Jones’ 2020 album “Not So Far Apart”. You can listen to it in full by heading over to Bandcamp now.

Purshink – Kid: An Ambient Indie Folk Playlist Essential

Purshink

Up and coming singer songwriter Purshink’s debut single “Kid” is an aural invitation to escape the trials and tribulations of adult life and sink back into childhood nostalgia.

While the instrumentals set up soothing and indulgently absorbing melodies, Purshink succinctly layers her vocals atop of the guitar-led soundscape to create a powerfully reflective listening experience.

After you hear it once, you’ll consider Kid an ambient Indie Folk playlist essential. The track’s ability to strip the tension from you as you listen to the ethereally light progressions isn’t something which we get to hear every day. We’re incredibly excited to hear what comes next.

You can check out Purshink’s debut single which was released on March 13th for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

Jacob Mondry – The Winning Sperm: A Sticky-Sweet Indie Folk Celebration of What it Means to Be Human

After hearing Jacob Mondry’s single “Colour Me Blue”, we were expecting more quintessentially charming records to follow. What we definitely weren’t expecting was a quintessentially charming track titled “The Winning Sperm”.

Before I pressed play, I knew it would win me over. Any single which strips back the romanticism about what it is to human will always be worth its weight in aural gold. Sure enough, we weren’t disappointed.

The devilish wit in the lyrics paired with the accordantly innocent Indie Folk vocals and the gentle acoustic instrumentals is something you’re going to have to hear for yourselves to fully appreciate.

Not every artist could get away with such a borderline crass topic and still win you over. Perceptibly, Jacob Mondry isn’t your average artist. And it’s not only us who think so, after signing a deal with Universal Records, it’s easy to expect big things to come from the LA-based artist.

Country Pop artist Elliot Wren has made her debut with the single “RIP My Diary”

Up and coming singer-songwriter Elliot Wren has made their debut with the polished Country Pop single “RIP My Diary”.

Any fans of Taylor Swift’s sticky-sweet bubblegum Pop style will definitely want to consider the single for their playlists. It’s instantly accessible and the melodies aren’t shy about sticking to your synapses for a long while after you’ve heard them.

It really wouldn’t be a surprise to hear Elliot Wren’s future soundscapes in the OST’s for feel-good films. It’s got that boundless emotively captive appeal which debut singles very infrequently offer.

Neo-Classical Pop Artist Uninhibited Has Released Her Stripped-Bare Power Ballad “Unrequited”

Up and coming Pop singer-songwriter Uninhibited has recently released her unfalteringly soulful neo-classical single “Unrequited”, and it’s cinematic enough not to be out of place on a Disney OST.

Even though the lyrical verses contain plenty of real raw emotion, the single still boasts a cathartic fantastical feel which will never go out of trend.

While many contemporary Pop artists strive to find a new evolution of Pop to cling to, artists such as Uninhibited preserve the art form which is the cinematic orchestrally-laced love ballad. When the pensive piano-led melodies lead you into a powerful burst of orchestral strings, don’t be surprised if you feel your heart in your mouth.

Annabel Hailey – Fallen: Majestically Baroque Indie Art Pop

“Fallen” was just one of the majestically baroque Indie Art Pop singles to be released by singer-songwriter Annabel Hailey in 2019.

The cabaret teasing rhythms feed archaic alchemy into the mix alongside winding tensile guitar progressions which almost allow the soundscape to veer into the realms of Post Punk. Whichever way you define it, there’s no denying that Fallen is an enchanting single which has plenty to do with Annabel Hailey’s timelessly classic approach to vocals.

Any fans of Kate Bush and Tori Amos will definitely want to checkout Fallen along with the up and coming artist’s other releases. If Nick Cave heard Fallen, I’m sure it wouldn’t be all too long before he proposed a collaboration.
