Lucy Chan is soulfully cinematic in her latest single, Love Motion Picture

Lucy Chan shared a college fever dream in her latest soulfully cinematic pop track, Love Motion Picture, which runs with escapist references to 90s rom coms, hints of 80s synth pop and a modernist twist to the romanticism.

The 19-year-old singer-songwriter has been a hit with teen pop fans ever since her 2021 single, I Wonder, and her acclaim grows with every subsequent release. Taylor Swift would want to eat her heart out to the dreamy innocent melodicism of Love Motion Picture, We can’t wait to hear what the Australian artist resolvingly releases next.

Love Motion Picture is now available to stream via Spotify.

Amelita is here with ‘’A Quarantine Breakup Song’’ featuring Sims, tears and aliens

It had to come. A quarantine breakup song in 2020. Something was missing from the music scene and we have the answer. The US teen Pop artist is feeling pain and her ex is deservedly the literal punching bag on this occasion. Oh wait, it’s a naughty parody. Nevermind. 

Self described as a ‘’Comedic musician and avid sleep enthusiast’’, I would love to meet ‘Amelita’. She doesn’t take herself too seriously and is definitely creating a niche for herself. 

‘Amelita’ loves her Parody videos on YouTube and seems to be gaining more and more steam after each release. The mix of a Sims video game and music is quite fascinating. Making babies with an alien is just an extra treat too. Something about werewolves too. You get the idea.

Let’s see what this comedian musician has next up her sleeve as she certainly entertains. 

Stream more from Amelita here on her YouTube channel.

Christine XP – Memory Jeans: Guitar-Driven Teen-Pop

Christine XP is drifting through the difficulties of a modern-day teenager with her new song “Memory Jeans”.

Christine XP seems like a pretty likable presence. From her photo shoots in which she always showcases her warm smile to her bio on her Spotify page , everything about her is charged with a genuinely positive load. She plays the guitar; she gracefully turns her wishes, thoughts, and demons into lyrics. And she sings about those things, in a way that you can almost picture her not losing her smile while recording them, which is a precious thought.

“Memory Jeans” is a song the spine of which is some plain guitar chords, enriched by various pop music sounds. Overall the production is simple and down to earth. Perhaps Christine’s aim here is to introduce herself to the world, in a not so splurging way.

A somewhat large number of psychologists and behavioral scholars agree on the notion that being a teenager is the toughest period in a person’s life. Christine XP is a teenager singing about all kinds of hardship that a fair portion of her contemporaries can find themselves fluently relating to. Listen to her sing about these things here

Mahawry – Find A Way: Laid Back Teen-Pop

Welcome back to the early 00s! Everything about this track smells like the “good ol’ days” that seem to be gone for pop music.

“Find A Way” is a teen pop song by Mahawry. It features her soft and laid back vocals, and a simple production that is comprised of a beat and some acoustic guitar licks. Her singing certainly is from another time; a time not that far away (well, that always depends on for how long you’ve been walking this earth yourself). She reminds me a bit of what Avril Lavigne did past her teen-punk phase. This overall is fairly welcomed, given that this teen glow, that gazing into the future vibe that Mahawry’s music gives is nowhere to be found in pop culture.

This is such a good song to play when you’re on your way to the beach. Listen to “Find A Way” on Soundcloud
