It’s upbeat and the perfect track to spin if you need an upbeat track to transform your mood.

Not a lot is known about the duo LEØ except that they have one single titled “Linger” on soundcloud and that they have an instagram account. The track is laid back with the vocals of Chloe Pilkington and the sound of simple guitar and synth by Callum MacDonald.

We know they are both 19 and are based in Brisbane, Australia. The intrigue and talent with their first single has us keeping an eye on these two. There should be an EP release soon which will also be titled Linger.

Royal Tongues (USA) – “Chasing Down A Feeling”

LA based alternative pop duo, Royal Tongues, is Aaron Bonus and Justin Gammella. The project was born as a personal and creative outlet for the pair in 2014. After many years writing and producing music for other artists and specifically for film & TV projects, the bug to make music that was a complete embodiment of their personas and their musical chemistry couldn’t be ignored any longer.

Royal Tongues released their debut single “The Balance” last year and it was well received. They are back with “Chasing Down a Feeling” and the track definitely helps elicit positive vibes.  The duo said Chasing down a feeling was a blast to create. I believe Justin and I dug deep into each of our influences and came out with a track we both felt was very special.”  We look forward to more upbeat synth pop gems in the future.
