Nick Talos | "Home To You"
Berlin-based electronic artist Nick Talos partnered with Grammy-nominated songwriter Lucas Secon for his latest single, "Home To You." The catchy flute hooks are a departure from traditional dance music, but complement the infectious beats.
⭐ PREMIERE ⭐ | Younger Hunger | "Dead Inside"
Haunt pop trio Younger Hunger's single "Dead Inside" is the perfect prelude to their debut EP, according to frontman Tony Davia. "We were all at this party and I was having a bad night. So we all left to go hang out at our studio and play some N64," he said. "We ended up jamming and that's when we wrote the hook over an old cowbell loop."
⭐ PREMIERE ⭐ | Sheridan Reed | "Twisted Up"
Austin singer-songwriter Sheridan Reed's single "Twisted Up" is one of several singles slated for release in the coming months. "Twisted Up" describes the anguish of poorly timed love. "It's about the emotional push and pull of being attracted to someone who is already spoken for," noted Reed, "and whether it's worth the risk."Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
Dominique Tey | "Let It Out"
MASSAI's Dominique Tey kicks dreamy pop music up a notch with her latest single, "Let It Out." The Sweden native marries spooky synth and gentle vocals, creating an otherworldly escape.
Quelle Rox | Dream Daisies
Bedroom pop artist Quelle Rox is a musical powerhouse. The video for her latest single, Dream Daisies, reflects her DIY approach to lo-fi pop. "My goal is to open the doors for women music producers," Quelle said, "while also creating my own dream world through my sound."
Chris Jobe | Backwards
Chris Jobe's latest video pairs thoughtful lyrics and rhythmic beats with a trippy alternate reality we don't mind getting lost in.
Ricky Rebel | Life is a Runway
Ricky Rebel has an impressive resume: LGBTQ activist, singer, and dancer. In his latest video he shows off all three.Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
The Collection | Entropy
Chamber pop band The Collection lives up to its name, sporting a myriad of instruments and, on their debut album, 25 members. They've since pared down to a manageable (and tour-able) sized group. Their bold harmonies and complex instrumentals sound more like a group of 25 than one of four.
Soul Cannon | Soul Cannon
Why don't more people play guitars when they rap? We're gonna queue up experimental hip-hop group Soul Cannon's other two albums while we speculate.Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
Jessie Munro | On My Own
L.A.'s Jessie Munro streamlines traditional R&B, pairing soulful vocals with an electro-pop edge. Her six track EP tells the story of loves lost but not forgotten, and the courage it takes to move on.www.delyanis.com.
