Lu Kala’s “Want You” is going to blow you away. Kala’s voice is effortless and stunning, and the electro pop single is fiercely refreshing.
St. South’s “Growing Up” is magic; calm and powerful, and sweeping you away with her.
This year I’ve heard a lot of great new singles from up-and-coming bands, and Low Life Lolas’ “Grime” is one of my favourites.
Stables’ “Marathon” is giving me life right now, and it might just be the perfect Monday song.
This year has been tough on a lot of people. Canadians have been separated for months during the pandemic, and nothing has been the same. Catherine MacLellan and Tara MacLean’s song “This Storm” is a ray of sunshine for anyone who’s still struggling though.
Kaylee Rutland’s “Kiss Me Like You Miss Me” is a ray of sunshine, and it sounds like summer. The country pop single hits all the right notes, and Rutland’s vocals are bright, beautiful, and airy.
Every day, I listen to a lot of music. On average, I get anywhere from 20 to 50 songs a day from artists across Canada and around the world. So what does it take for a song to catch my ear?
The Cool Quest’s “Punisher” is one of the slickest singles I’ve heard this year, and the band has a genre-crossing sound and style that’s completely addictive.
gnash’s “Leave” is a nostalgic warm hug that feels sad, hopeful, and very bittersweet.
Golan’s “Anima” takes you on a journey. The song is emotive and layered, with harmonies that build the deeper travel into the song.
