Cool Set’s debut single, ‘Summer Retro’, has taken about a year to complete, thanks to Covid. The summery, electronic-pop track serves as a great introduction to the pair and their sound, and comes with a gorgeous music video, shot in and around Los Angeles, and taking in the sights that will be instantly familiar to anyone who’s visited the City Of Angels.
In the video for ‘Hold Her Hand’, Summer Rain cover love, in its purest form. It’s wholesome, yet somehow chaotic, and unexplored, while small acts of kindness stand out and show what love is all about. Such small acts include polishing the significant other and refilling their engine oil…because the object of Josh’s affections isn’t a human. It’s a motorcycle. It’s not just any motorcycle, though; she’s a Honda CX500, a special series developed and released in the 1970s.
Starting with gentle piano chords, ‘I Need You Lord’ sees Vin Mack singing about peace and hope. His strong and beautiful vocals swell, as swaying music playing in the background. A song of praise and adoration, ‘I Need You Lord’ sees Vin give thanks to God and all the wonderful things He has blessed him with. The song also brings hope and encouragement to all those who listen to it.
Born to a Russian family in Latvia, Yuliyah is a singer songwriter whose specialist sound is Doo Wop, and Bubblegum Pop. Her new single, ‘Real Deal’, out August 15, is filled to the brim with sweet melodies, while the video is packed with retro vibes, as Yuliyah uses sassy lyricism and dance to empower women and encourage them to independence. She cites Meghan Trainor and Duffy as influences, and this is evident in ‘Real Deal’.
The last time we saw LA producer and singer-songwriter Eddie Cohn was back in May, with is post-industrial video for ‘Animals’, a song and video written in response to the chaos of 2020, the violent nature of human beings, and our striking similarities to animals. He keeps releasing video after video for the song, and it’s hard to keep up! He’s not one afraid to pack a punch, and although the DJ has already accomplished a lot of depth with the song, he’s still finding more, and with this brand new remix, he dives deeper, and re-imagines it yet again.
