Annabel Jones - "Happy"

Annabel Jones’ fanbase has continued to grow, especially after releasing the track “IOU” which has received a multitude of spins since it’s release and also numerous remixes. “Happy” is the newest single from her EP Libelle, which is released today.

“Happy” continues with Jones’ talent of combining unique and powerful vocals set against a mix of synth and beats that are a good cross between EDM and synth pop. Jones has  huge potential to reach a large fan base with her style.

We hope that Jones continues with her authentic songwriting which covers topics like addiction, serious relationship issues which sets her apart from the majority of pop songs out there today.

Jones’ debut EP, debut Libelle, is out today.

CRUISR – “Take That” (Philadelphia, USA)

CRUISR - "Take That"

CRUISR was a super fun band to witness live at SXSW back in 2015 and we have been following them ever since. They offer up energetic and addicting indie pop that keeps you moving.

If “Take That” doesn’t uplift your mood, we are not sure what will. If you dig bands like The Griswolds, CRUISR is for you. With “Take That”, they have once again perfected feel good indie pop with the addicting “take that” chorus from a possible elementary school choir. We hope to hear more soon from CRUISR. Lately they have been releasing double singles so at least you will know you are in for a two pack punch of great indie pop.

Part of a double single, and the other track, “The Fritz”, can be heard here.

CRUISR are Andy States, Jon Van Dine, and Bruno Catrambone.

Empire Assembly – “Hush” (Los Angeles, USA)

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/260331862″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”150″ iframe=”true” /]

Empire Assembly - "Hush"

Multi-national band Empire Assembly have released a new single, “Hush”. The track is a great mix of rock and pop which includes a positive and uplifting message about relationships.

Love doesn’t have to be immediately confirmed through a physical relationship. Why not take things slow and get to know that person fully first?  Why not just quit with all the games that are played in dating and relationships?

Mr. Hansen’s vocals are soothing and the simplistic musical arrangements allow the lyrics and meaning of the song to shine. We look forward to hearing more from Empire Assembly.

Empire Assembly are Jay Hansen (vocals from New York), Bruno Justi (guitars from Brazil), Kibrom Birhane (keys from Ethiopia), and Diego Ruvalcaba (drums from Mexico).

Jane's Party - "Coming On Strong"

Jane’s Party are creating memorable and perfectly crafted pop/rock tracks. “Coming On Strong” is their newest release and we definitely have our eye on this Canadian foursome.

“Coming On Strong” has everything you need including dreamy vocals, memorable chorus’, perfectly placed guitar riffs and glorious melodies. We’ve heard they put on a great live show as well.

Jane’s Party have all the elements needed to become a breakout indie pop-rock band, and with “Coming On Strong” racking up soundcloud and spotify spins, that could be sooner rather than later.

Jane’s Party are Devon Richardson, Tom Ionescu, Jeff Giles, and Zach Sutton.

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/262483529″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”150″ iframe=”true” /]

Royal Tongues - "Oblivion"

Royal Tongues recently released “Oblivion” and it’s a stellar synthpop track. “Oblivion” mixes synthpop, a bit of rock together which creates a memorable and upbeat track that also must be added to your feel-good summer playlist.

Lyrically, the track is inspiring and speaks to having big dreams, overcoming obstacles and encouraging  the listener to keep going even if times get rough.

If you dig bands like Passion Pit or even Magic Man, Royal Tongues are for you. They have all the ingredients present to easily be added to Sirius XM’s Alt Nation or any other alternative format radio station.

Someday River – “Sleeping Sideways” (Orlando, USA)

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/262123579″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”150″ iframe=”true” /]

Someday River - "Sleeping Sideways"

We recently featured “Day Changer” by Someday River and we can’t help share “Sleeping Sideways”. Their newest release encompasses those feel good airy vibes that you need to add to a relaxing warm weather playlist, or to the perfect list of road trip tunes.

“Sleeping Sideways” starts off with simple acoustic guitar with just the right amount of reverb, and then the percussion kicks in and fully grabs your attention.

Someday River share a bit about the track:

“Sleeping Sideways” is a song about releasing the burden of blame, and the weight of the past. It’s about forgiving yourself.. forgiving your friends.. and forgiving your enemies; letting go and moving on. There’s not enough time to be angry.”

Someday River are Greyson Charnock (Guitar, Vocals, Synth), Sean Boyle (Percussion) and Kyle Fournier (Bass).
