Canada has been celebrating some big news. This month, cannabis became legal across the country and people are pretty excited about it. Now they just need an anthem for their new legal, recreational drug, and Mark Higgins has just the song: “Oh Cannabis”.
Kayla Ruby’s “Never Really Know Somebody” is a bright, confident new single from an up-and-coming country artist, and I’m thrilled to have the premiere from this very talented young singer.
Savoir Adore’s “Black and Blue” is a charming indie pop single with the perfect hooks, beautiful vocals, and a chorus that’s been stuck in my head all night.
Andrew Bayer’s “Immortal Lover” is a gorgeous, ethereal electro pop ballad with one of the most beautiful videos I’ve seen in a long time.
Layered, sultry, and steamy, “Mango” by KING is an R&B banger with deeply spicy Cuban flare. KING is confidant, catchy, and fun, and the single feels like a warm breeze blowing across a tropical beach.
Catherine McGrath’s “Lost In The Middle” may sound like a pure American slice of Apple pie, but the Northern Ireland-born singer is proving that country music doesn’t just come from Nashville.
“This Could Be The End of It” is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. The song is brisk and airy, but rooted in a sense of sadness that gives way to light. And the lyrics are touching and bright, with a sense of someone who has been there, done that, and come through the other side.
Starley’s “Love Is Love” is a personal pop song that’s catchy, empowering, and just a bit heartbreaking. The Australian artist puts her heart on her sleeve, revealing a story that is tender, even as the song is bright and filled with the sound of hope.
Golan’s “Rocket Love”, featuring Island Chain, is smooth, velvety electro pop that’s gorgeously nostalgic, with a music video that’s just as dreamy as the single.
Summer ends this week, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have one last celebration for some of the best indie songs from the season. We’re getting back into music this week with Shy Martin, The New Respects, Color Theory, Iris Gold, Rea Garvey, and ZOË.
