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
and Walk The Moon
, the new single, aptly named ‘Sing’,
is a clear demonstration of these comparisons and the influences.
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.
Ecstasy and sorrow, post-punk and pop, east and west - all those times when you’re caught in the middle, there’s Mainland. They are the soundtrack to moments of freedom and darkness. Taking a nod from society’s fellow black sheep (think David Lynch, William Eggleston, and Depeche Mode), Mainland returns with a collection of new tunes and an enigmatic call to arms. A diverse mix of vintage aesthetics and modern pop songwriting/production,Mainland draws from a range of influences to form one unifying anthem loud enough for all of life’s outcasts. Stream "A Bit Out Of Time" above.
We put Empire on here last month with their groovy R&B/Pop vibe and I had to put down their latest with Mayer Hawthorne which is on Empire's debut album.
Other favorites you NEED TO LISTEN TO include ALL OF THEM. Seriously this is some great music and I'm happy to bring you some fun vibes to get you through the work day or dancing with that special someone.
