HEARTS - TOURIST
The new Tourist track is a progressive ambient melody that combines multiple layers of different tunes that ultimately blend together very naturally. The electronic influences on this song are evident; however, the final result has a more atmospheric vibe that transcends itself above the usual conventions of EDM.
GRIP - SEEB, BASTILLE
This track sounds like a summary of all the good EDM-pop hits from the past few years. It’s a safe release that would be stuck in our heads immediately - its catchy and radio-friendly vibe, combined with the anthem-like lyrics will make the song a hit in no time!
POINTING GUNS - STOCKHOLM NOIR
Another electronic dance track, only this time infused with subtle (or not so subtle) techno beats. The female vocals provided are a melodic journey that blend fluently with the instrumentation, creating a dark and mysterious feeling in the listeners.
ISN’T YOU - SHAYLEN
Isn’t You is an R&B-infused track that tells Shaylen’s sassy truth about her lover. Some things become crystal clear after the first listen: girls will love the song while boys won’t be able to resist the catchy melody, which might be the formula of a hit song nowadays.
JUST FOR US PT. 2 - BENNY BLANCO
American producer Benny Blanco breaks the 3:30 hit-single length rule that he so craft-fully has played with by releasing this less-than 2-minutes long track. ‘Just For Us Pt. 2’ follows the trends of experimental electronic music, with a flavour of his personal style, easily making the song your guilty pleasure.
CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND - CLARA MAE
‘Call Your Girlfriend’ is the most personal track this week. Rarely do singers opt to go this certain direction lyrically; however, Clara Mae manages to put a certain emotion into this track that makes it easy for us to see her perspective. Shout-out to the simple production and great vocals!
