If you haven’t heard of Ella Vos, pay attention. The singer enjoyed a decent amount of exposure with her song White Noise, which was remixed by a few people, including R3hab. Other equally amazing (if not better) songs of hers include Down In Flames and You Don’t Know About Me, both of which are faster-paced with hollow percussion and modern production. In Your Corner is the perfect complement to the sassy lyrics and punchy beats on her other songs. It starts out slow and simple, but the chorus kicks in with layers of her voice and the instrumental, and the result is stunning. Put this one on repeat, and get ready to float away.
Billie Eilish hit it big with single Ocean Eyes, and fans of the her ethereal voice and futuristic production have been waiting with bated breath for every single she’s released since. Those fans (myself included) are lucky, because Billie recently released dont smile at me, a three-song package featuring COPYCAT, watch, and idontwannabeyouanymore. All three songs are worth listening to on repeat – they’re incredible. COPYCAT is the standout, though. It’s a far cry from her previous work, and the deep, bass-heavy instrumental contrasts perfectly with her light voice floating over it. With lyrics like “Call me calloused, call me cold, you’re italic, I’m in bold,” Billie is making an statement that she’s here, and she’s not going anywhere.
I like me better when I’m listening to Lauv. 😉 Lauv is the king of the feels song. Just give The Other or The Story Never Ends a whirl, and you’re sure to be melting into a puddle of tears within a minute. That’s part of what sets I Like Me Better apart, though. This upbeat love song proves that Lauv isn’t a one-trick pony. Just try not to break out into a little dance during the bouncy chorus. Fresh off his first headlining tour, let’s hope this promising artist is getting back into the studio to deliver us more songs soon!
