So many amazing singles, EP’s and albums are released every week that it can be hard to keep track of it all. To make things nice and easy for you, here are some of our favourite releases of the last week. Bringing you something from different countries, genres and styles.
Bloom – Rosie Frater-Taylor
Three years after the release of her debut album, Rosie Frater-Taylor is back with her sophomore album Bloom. Trained at the Royal Academy of Music, Frater-Taylor’s incredible skill on the guitar immediately pulls you in, as she effortlessly creates mellow, jazz-inspired tracks. The album is the perfect summer listen and also features a gorgeous cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams.
Aura – Aibai ft. Colby Hansen
Just in time for Pride month, producer Aibai releases two singles together with singer Colby Hansen. Both centre on queer love, the singles describe feelings many of us can relate to. Blending indie, r&b and alternative music, the singles would fit in perfectly on the soundtrack of a coming-of-age film.
Green Grass – Ellie Dixon
With her sharp lyrics and indie pop-sound, Ellie Dixon is an artist that you can’t help but listen to on repeat. Her latest release Green Grass, is the positivity anthem many of us need right now. While we still live in difficult times, Dixon’s track will instantly make you feel a little bit better about the world.
Homecoming Queen – ELLiS·D
Released via his own DIY label ‘Change the F*cking Records!’, Brighton-born ELLiS·D offers a vintage sound with his single Homecoming Queen. Tackling themes of a bleak future and guilt within the younger generations, ELLiS·D describes the thoughts many twenty-somethings deal with today. A confident offering of an artist we’re excited to see more of.
Spider on the Wall – John Myrtle
After a single about a slug named Cyril, John Myrtle manages to create another unexpected track, this time through the perspective of a spider. With clever lyrics, it is a fun and easy listen for a summer afternoon that promises good things for his album release later this month. On top of that, the single might even make you rethink killing that spider in your room. A win-win.
Popsicle Place – Cosmic Crooner
The second single of Dutch singer Cosmic Crooner, Popsicle Place is another smooth listen. Just like his debut, the track is inspired by the sounds of the 60s and 70s. Combined with another great music video shot on film, he’s an artist to surely keep your eye on.
