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.
Mikey Wax’s “Big Little Life” is the ultimate romantic summer pop song. The track is sweetly earnest, and resonates with the singer and songwriter’s earthy, moving vocals, and maybe best of all, the single has a fantastic story behind it.
“Leave The Lights On” is Echo Nebraska’s yearning, pleading folk-rock single about what it’s like to think about the one you love while you’re on the road.
Electro pop singer bülow is back with her second single of the summer, “Sad and Bored”, featuring rapper DUCKWRTH, and it’s a throbbing, dark and hook-driven roller-coaster ride.
Positive vibes only! That’s my summer motto, and Twelve24’s “Keep A Little Love” is the perfect pop song to keep the last few weeks of the warm weather bright and airy.
Sweet and sultry, Haley Reinhart’s “Last Kiss Goodbye” sounds like a jazz hit from a different era. Reinhart’s smooth, gorgeous vocals flow like waves on the beach, and the lyrics are beautifully catchy. The track sounds like it could have come from a movie soundtrack, or on the patio of a fancy Italian restaurant.
The Eiffels’ “Body Like That” is what summer sounds like. The Los Angeles indie-pop band captures the fun, feel-good vibes of rolling down the windows and singing along with the volume cranked, and it doesn’t hurt that the track channels some of the fun of acts like Walk The Moon, with classic, old school pop attitude.
