Out on March 10, ‘It’s Ok Not to be Ok’ is the new single from The Rude Awakening. The track is a timely release from the UK synth duo, as they examine the psychological fragility of people in the world today. A deeply personal song, Johnny Normal and Bridget Gray are inspired by the music of synth and post-punk pioneers, including Gary Numan, PiL, Soft Cell and OMD.
We’ve written about Bruce Sudano’s songs and videos a number of times on here, and regular readers will know that he favours clips which feature animation.

North Carolina native GS11 has been putting his own stamp on Southern rap and making his own since 2015. With his crew, the 11 Grooves, backing him up, GS11 and his latest project ‘Gastronaut’ have been burning up the charts with singles such as ‘Bunkin’. His latest track, ‘Flex’, featuring The Plug Daughter, should likewise be a smash.

Born and raised in Jos Plateau, Nigeria, but now living in Miami, Poshbugati has always remained true to his humble beginnings, and prides himself and his music on his love for his family. The artist started out singing in the Church choir, and then was inspired by musical legends like Fela Kuti, Tupac Shakur, and Bob Marley. His propulsive Afro-pop sound is nowadays centred on his family, in particular his two daughters. New single, ‘Girl Dad’, therefore would on the surface be about his story, but it’s also about another dedicated father of girls, the late Kobe Bryant.
We’ve been writing about AV Super Sunshine for a long time now – since 2016, would you believe – and we’re not about to stop any time soon. The super happy and super extra-terrestrial artist from Wisconsin is also ‘Super Cool’, and what do you know, that just happens to be the name of his latest single, and music video!
The haunting sound of traditional Nordic music is the inspiration for Heilung, who wind the rhythms of the sagas into their tunes. ‘Norupo’, their new single, draws from folk music and the lyrics themselves were taken from the Norwegian Rune Poem, which was originally written in Futhark, the alphabet of the Northern Germanic people.
‘Carousel’ is the latest single from MJ Songstress, and it will intoxicate you with its sensual, immersive, and propulsive beat.
