Satchmode – “Don’t Give Up On Me” (Los Angeles, USA)
“Don’t Give Up On Me” is the newest from LA based duo Satchmode comprised of Gabe Donnay and Adam Boukis.
The track is saturated in sweet synths and dreamy vocals but the lyrical tone is much more serious than the airy vibes the song emits.
Satchmode shares a bit about the track: “Don’t Give Up On Me” is a much faster, higher energy song than anything we have released before. But it still centers around familiar themes: regret and pain about a broken relationship, and desperate denial about the state of things.”
VOKES – “Cruel Game” (Los Angeles, USA)
“Cruel Game” is the debut single from Los Angeles based VOKES.
VOKES is L.A.-based artist Mike Harris who is entering into the ever growing landscape of solo artists that can produce those ever addicting pop tracks that continue to rack up plays and fans on various music sites.
“Cruel Game” has a vibe similar to Lost Boy Crow with an 80s synth sensibility. We are sure we will be hearing more from Mr. Harris in 2016 and we are looking forward to it. This is another one you can throw into your warm summer feel good playlist.
