Best in Pop - Hot New Releases
Gorgeous, gleaming glistening pop to see you into the summer!
Featuring Lisa Curran, Empress Of, Just Wondering, Blithe, TATYANA, Madison Rose, Lagoona Bloo, Lemon and EFÉ
Milkshake Sky - Lisa Curran
‘Milkshake Sky’ is a gorgeous meld of melancholy uneasy analog textures; mixed with glittering walls of pop, giving way to a song that is simultaneously both new and old; the verses possessing the haunting quality found in a lot of classics (a characteristic that is also present in a lot of Lana del Ray’s music)
‘Milkshake Sky’ is “a song set to the poem by Farida Momtaz; and is a representation of an up and down relationship whether that be a love interest, a friend or a family member!”
The Kerry based artist was recently a featured artist on the #1 single ‘embrace the world’ by Kevin Walsh which was a huge success for Ireland's autism charity AsIAm.
Dance For You - Empress Of
The newest release from the LA based artist. Rich electronic with slightly mournful descending chords, a house beat paired with flawless vocals, this reminds me of a lot of mid-2000s pop electronic songs. As with all of Empress Of’s releases, this is filled with beautiful and imaginative production choices.
idk, maybe - Just Wondering
This is the newest release from the Dublin-based trio - and it is gorgeous.
“idk maybe” features slightly forlorn electronic pop textures, with utterly addictive vocal melodies and production. This will be the soundtrack to a lot of summer memories.
Cherry - Blithe
Opening with a bang, with huge drums and a plucking, groove filled bassline, this demands your utmost attention from the moment it begins, before dissolving into a rich gleaming chorus with sublime vocals. You need this.
Between The Lines - TATYANA
Pitch perfect vocals easing over a rising wall of electronic pop textures; before descending into gorgeous pop/shoegaze verse, littered with analog texture synths and pads, turning this song into something fully unique. This one is for lucid dreaming.
Technicolor - Madison Rose
This is technicolor in song form.
Featuring lush, reflective pads and synthesis reminiscent in texture to a lot of mid 2000s electronic-pop production, the arpeggiated basslines, sublime stacked vocals, all lead into a huge exploding kaleidoscopic chorus that lifts you right out of your seat.
Sticky Sweet - Lagoona Bloo, Lemon
Candy- like glistening melodies, all sprinkled over a throbbing industrial bassline - Sickly Sweet is confectionery spun sugar. The verses lead into a dreamily smooth chorus that mixes the best of pop and electronic textures.
Lime - EFÉ
Every song released by Dublin based artist EFÉ is drenched with DIY bedroom pop flavored character. LIME is a refreshing blast of warmth and citrusy magical touches, before hitting you with an in your face chorus, so, so good.
