Royal Wood has been one of my favourite Canadian artists since I first saw him perform in Toronto in the late 2000s. He’s one of the most stylish, interesting singers, and “Make Your Mind Up” is smooth, sweet, and completely catchy.
What a voice. Hanorah’s “Long Road” is one of the most mesmerizing, bluesy singles I’ve heard in ages. It’s groovy, and moody, and downright perfect.

TÖME’s “Kickback” is the smoothest track of the summer. The single is one of the most chill songs I’ve heard in months, and it feels sun-drenched; like it was made for the most relaxed day of the year.
