Last month we had some great releases on Soundcloud, here’s my 30 favorite song releases below to stream (and some to download!).
Ok let’s get to discussing some of my favorites and ones that got personally sent to us.
Over the past few years the Parisian beauty, Cocovan, made quite a name for herself in her home city, but recently she felt the calling to immerse herself in the colorful cultures of NYC and LA, absorbing everything the great American cities had to offer. Handling all of the writing and production duties herself on this project, she channeled a few of her influences – Cyndi Lauper, Annie Lennox and Blood Orange – and came up with a really fun, 80’s influenced indie-pop sound. Listen to “Mirage Of Us” above.
The Wild Wild is the brainchild of Benjamin Dunn, who writes, plays and records all of the music on his own. Described as a mix between Friendly Fires, MGMT and Walk The Moon, the new single, aptly named ‘Sing’, is a clear demonstration of these comparisons and the influences.
20 Eyes is described as a strangely gratifying blast of pop/rock anxiety, self-doubt and jealousy. I find it super catchy electronic pop/rock fun that has potential to be something more. Keep an eye on these guys and listen to “Hit It” above.
