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. For his latest single, ‘It Don’t Take Much (Because I Do)’, Sudano has once again visited this means of visualisation, and we see both the singer and his band rendered as 2-D digital images.
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.
Estani is not restricted to any particular genre with her style ranging from Latin soul to acoustic, jazz, and salsa. The Los Angeles based artist is a singer songwriter and vocal coach, specialising in music production, and her talent is illustrated in her lyrical depth and emotional honesty. Estani’s new single, ‘Droughts In The Ocean’, showcases her musical strengths, along with a striking, black and white music video.
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. The New York City singer songwriter doesn’t let genres define her, and this unapologetic bop will pick you up and throw you onto the dance floor, and while its at it, put you in the mood for maybe testing out the waters of a new love.
Elijah Wolf’s new single, ‘Brighter Lighting’, sees him move out of the self-isolation of his first album, and into a more collaborative, immersive sound. It seems counter-intuitive, given that more artists are becoming introspective due to the pandemic, and he’s doing the opposite; but Wolf knows that, and he’s chosen to instead focus on the infinite possibility that’s outside his four walls.
Billy D Rice was born in Canada, and spent some time in Boca Raton, Florida. He’s been surrounded by creativity his entire life, and his music, with its lighthearted lyrics, is definitely country in sound, but it further falls somewhere between country rock, country dance, and country hip-hop. Taking his inspiration from his surroundings, he’s further been influenced by Marvin Gaye (lyrics), AC/DC (instrumentals), and his home-spun meaningful, friendly statements, and personal magnetism, could easily be emulating Garth Brooks. In short, his sound is quite eclectic, but it’s fun and appealing, and his latest track, ‘The One I Love’, will speak to many with its good energy and even better music.
18 year old Liv V is brimming with confidence and positive energy in her new single, ‘Magnetic’. The song, which saw her team up with DJ Wiz, IKA, and Jenne Derck, is a song that will resonate with everyone as she asks that we all come together, and not allow anyone to divide us – whether it be the governments, media, or other influences.
Angus Brill Reed, from Adelaide, Australia, may still only be 16 years old, but he’s packed a lot into those years. Not only did he win the EDM section of the 2020 UK Songwriting Contest with his single, ‘Cutting Corners’, he’s also been shortlisted for selection in Eurovision, won the title South Australian Young Pop Composer Of The Year two years in a row, and won a wide array of other national and international songwriting awards, including a top ten song in the Australian Songwriting Awards, ‘Gone’, released in May last year. He’s additionally appeared on national TV channels, ABC, and SBS.
Releasing her new record through Universal Music this week is the impressive Stefy De Cicco, who signed with the label a while back. After the runaway success of ‘Life Is One’ with fellow female Ludovica Pagani at the end of 2020, she showcases ‘Fences,’ a track written alongside progressive producer Wasback.
