RELEASE RADAR is here to give you the breakdown of the top singles, albums, and videos of the week, so you can head into your weekend with a new list of killer tunes.
Swerve | "She Cut Her Hand"
On the heels of their sophomore EP, Swerve's new single takes a cue from the White Stripes with its heavy bass and dark percussion.
⭐ PREMIERE ⭐ | Evan Andree | "Your Heart"
Producer-turned-songwriter Evan Andree draws from the depths of the human psyche in his latest single. The mellow beats and soft harmonies invite deep introspection.
Feyer | "Stuck in a Video Game"
Feyer doesn't take himself too seriously in his latest release. The multifaceted singer-songwriter uses playful Nintendo-esque beats to make a serious critique on modern society's obsession with social media.
WONDR | "All For You"
WONDR is new to the music scene — but don't let that fool you. Even though he's only been releasing beats since January 2018, his music is wildly sophisticated. His latest single proves that he's only getting better.
Katy Tiz | "Life" (ft. Ed Drewett)
British pop star Katy Tiz collaborated with famed songwriter Ed Drewett on her single, "Life." Backed with candid acoustics and powerful harmonies, you can hear their years of experience.
⭐ PREMIERE ⭐ | Tinx | One More Time
Tinx - One More Time (Official Video) youtu.be
In her latest video, Tinx gives us a glimpse of a relationship on its last legs with beautifully fractured shots.
Lula Miranda | Cherry Kiss
LULA MIRANDA - Cherry Kiss youtu.be
This arresting video from Lula Miranda plays with drama reminiscent of Beyoncé's film Lemonade and features her signature sugar-sweet vocals.
Broken Bellows | Lemonade
Lemonade | Official Lyric Video | Broken Bellows www.youtube.com
The new lyric video from indie pop duo Broken Bellows is bold and cheeky, with bright colors to match the upbeat track.
Megan McKenna | Story of Me
British country star Megan McKenna first knocked Taylor Swift and P!NK off the iTunes Top 100 Singles chart last year, and her debut album lives up to all the hype.

HBO's "Euphoria" was honored for making mental illness and queer identity literally shine in the spotlight.
At just 24 years old, Zendaya has become the youngest Emmy winner for best lead actress–further proving that Gen Z is better at getting sh*t done.
Beating her fellow nominees Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show) and Laura Linney (Ozark), Zendaya was honored for her performance in HBO's glitter-and-hormone-soaked Euphoria and made history at last night's Emmy Awards. She beat the prior record held by Jodie Comer, who won for her work in Killing Eve just last year–at the ripe old age of 26.
Perhaps these respective icons of Zoomer ennui and homicidal Millennial burnout are symbols that younger generations are finally assuming their own positions of power and using their collective voice to highlight issues that have been historically shamed and marginalized, such as mental illness and queer identity. Or maybe their makeup's just really pretty.
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
