Coline Creuzot - Nothing
Coline Creuzot's Nothing is a bedazzling R&B anthem that shimmers with the radiant beauty of healing and self-discovery after a breakup. Through her sensational vocals, Creuzot lays bare the rawness of emotion, weaving a tapestry of heartbreak and catharsis, whilst the lush instrumentation provides the perfect backdrop for this soulful exploration of heartbreak and healing.
Christina Martin - Little Princess
Christina Martin's latest single Little Princess is a heartfelt ode to her late brother, a gifted artist, and a rebel, who passed away in 2013. It's a sweeping rock anthem that showcases Martin's powerhouse vocals and her ability to seamlessly blend the raw energy of rock with the refined elegance of orchestral arrangements, elevating the song above the fray of standard rock fare into something majestic and profound.
Christina says about the song: "Growing up I admired my older brother, who was a gifted artist, but also a rebel. He died in 2013 of an opioid overdose at the age of 41. This song touches on our relationship and a memory of writing my first prose and wanting to impress him with it. We were two embryonic artists, intrinsically bound by blood and similarities, and yet with mental illness in the mix, we kept each other at arm's length."
Still Blue - Honeysuckle Daydream
Still Blue's latest offering Honeysuckle Daydream is a powerful indie-pop gem that transports us back to the heady days of youth, with all its tangled emotions and endless possibilities. Overflowing with unbridled energy and infectious rhythms, Honeysuckle Daydream perfectly captures the emotional rollercoaster of a wild night out, proving that the magic of music lies in its ability to create emotions of pure, unadulterated joy.
Nicholas Johnson - New Vampire
Drawing inspiration from the crossroads of Midwestern rock and Southern roots, Nicholas Johnson's New Vampire from his latest album Shady Pines Vol. 2, is a folk -pop gem that conjures up the image of a late-night drive through an enchanted forest. Its rich vocal harmonies and rustic instrumentation create a warm, inviting atmosphere, that carries you on a hypnotic journey you don't want to end.
Caesar Spencer - Get Out Into The Pigs
Caesar Spencer's Get Out Into the Pigs from his album Get Out Into Yourself is a majestic piece of aural art that reflects on the struggles of adolescence and the desire for freedom that comes with growing up. Spencer's raw and grandiose vocals intertwine flawlessly with the awe-inspiring orchestral arrangements, courtesy of the FAMES Symphony Orchestra, elevating the song to a whole new level of musical brilliance.
The Get Right Band - iTopia
iTopia is a psychedelic, utterly ethereal synth-fueled anthem, that evokes the feeling of being transported through a wormhole into a cosmic wonderland. The song is taken off of psychedelic indie rock power outfit The Get Right Band's latest LP with the same name, which delves deep into the impact of technology and social media on our lives, exploring themes of disconnection, discontentment, and the fragility of human nature.

Ethan Eckert - And
And is a transcendent piece of music taken from musician, writer, painter, and filmmaker Ethan Eckert's latest album 21, Punishment, and Disarray. With each note, Eckert weaves a tapestry of sound that sparkles with imagination and creativity, while the airy, faraway vocals float atop the gentle guitar melodies, transporting you to a place beyond time and space. This is utterly otherworldly and evokes a sense of weightlessness as if you're floating through the cosmos.
Ethan Eckert donates all profits from his music to charity, making every purchase a small act of kindness toward those in need.
Holy Reptile - The Land
The Land by Holy Reptile's upcoming EP due later this year, is a hypnotic, otherworldly journey into the darker side of psychedelic rock. The haunting blend of the bassline, the guitar riffs, and the fervid vocals converge to create a sonic maelstrom that is impossible not to get caught up in. A swirling, psychedelic mirage of sound and emotion that draws from the depths of southern gothic literature, weaving a tale of mystery and intrigue. Awesome.
Ovef Ow - Fauxtography
Fauxtography by Ovef Ow is a tour de force of post-punk energy that delves deep into the pitfalls of our modern social media world. The track is a rollercoaster ride of frenzied guitar riffs, driving drums, glistening synths, and infectious vocals that leave you feeling breathless yet invigorated. With lyrics that explore the curated self-narratives and the constant search for validation and worth that define our online personas, Fauxtography is more timely than ever.
Wesson - Breathing In
Wesson's latest single Breathing In is a gripping commentary on the pressures of modern life, delving deep into the theme of materialism and the chase for satisfaction. Sharp lyrics, driving guitar riffs, and propulsive drum beats all blend together perfectly to provide the perfect backdrop to Wesson's passionate vocals, creating a sound that is both haunting and uplifting. Alt-rock at its finest.
