  1. Alice Lou Phoebe – “Shelter”

    Alice Lou Phoebe’s latest release is dreamy and relaxed in a way that makes listeners reflect on the lyrics even after the song has finished. Every lyric is delicately exposed without coming off as confessional songwriting.

  2. Claire Rosinkranz – “Never Goes Away”

    With classic bubblegum pop components, Claire Rosinkranz sings about the importance of saying things you can’t take back. The lighthearted melody paired with Claire’s delightful vocals create a fun song to dance around to.
  3. Seeb, Banners + SUPER-Hi – “Submarine”

    EDM Pop combined with soft country elements establish the heartbreaking nostalgic track on underdeveloped love. The groove and upbeat tone aim to contrast the overall message by creating something to dance to even in the worst of times.
  4. Riley Biederer – “beautiful boys”

    Riley Biederer completely understands what her generation wants from pop-singers with her bubbly choruses paired with contemporary eccentric dance beats. Her new single “beautiful boys” is instantly a catchy tune that can be danced to at parties or sung along to while driving down the highway.
  5. Navy Blue – “Chosen”

    Navy Blue’s “Chosen” grants fans a deeper look into how the rapper views and holds himself. This song is a must-listen for upcoming rappers (and rap fans) to remember why they started and how connected community truly is.
  6. Angel Olsen – “Nothing’s Free”

    Several months after her latest album, singer-songwriter Angel Olsen releases a new single for her upcoming EP (dropping April 14th). In classic Angel Olsen fashion, her voice smoothly blends with the instrumental jazz on the latter half of the dispirited song. “Nothing’s Free” is heavy and personal with a warm production that makes it alluring and hard to turn off.
  7. Indigo De Souza – “Smog”

    Indigo De Souza’s “I Love My Mom” EP started to gain more traction a few years after its release and left audiences wondering what else will come from the mysterious indie rock artist. In her new single, De Souza experiments a lot more with her sound by including sharper percussion remaining steady alongside her jittery-like lyrics. Through the “Smog”, De Souza reaches a moment of clarity both in her personal life and writing, she embraces vulnerability and experiencing true distance for the first time.
  8. Waterparks – “BRAINWASHED”

    With an upbeat tempo, the lyrics of Waterparks’ new single delivers a confusing story on love. The catchy chorus carries the foreign attitude towards the needing time away from a current partner. “BRAINWASHED” definitely introduces audiences to the strained relationships that inspired Waterparks’ upcoming album.
  9. Depeche Mode – “My Cosmos Is Mine”

    Depeche Mode embraces a personal manifesto with a slow, grungy vocals that force listeners to truly grasp the song’s true meaning. Each verse is thought provoking with its purpose of reminding listeners of the control they have over their lives.
  10. Christine and the Queens – “To Be Honest”

    Christine and the Queens’ newest track is a hypnotic melody mixed with vulnerable lyrics on letting romantic relationships grow despite personal setbacks. The second verse carries the most weight with its reflectiveness that will leave listeners longing for more.
