NEW MUSIC: Iolite – Sapphire

Iolite+Sapphire+Press+Shot

Introducing some fresh talent to you in the form of Iolite!

Iolite is a Denver local delivering some dark pop vibes that we can’t get enough of. “Sapphire” is an attitude filled, hard hitting anthem. There are definitely some Lorde/BANKS vibes here with the alt-pop vibes, but other than that, Iolite is definitely paving her own sound.

We absolutely can’t wait to hear more from this upcoming talent, and hopefully a tour will be in the works!

The video definitely gives me Beyonce, “Hold Up” vibes, but we aren’t mad at that. If she is going to keep giving us tracks like this we are all here for it!

NEW MUSIC: MiC LOWRY – Can’t Lie

We have been slacking in our features with the talented MiC LOWRY since our artist spotlight last year. Since then they have dropped “Whiskey Kisses” and more recently “Don’t Tempt Me“, and now the smooth “Can’t Lie”.

Every single track has been an absolute banger, giving us such a different boy band flavor than we have had. The smooth harmonies, the production is a 90’s feel that the industry is missing.

Now I will just patiently waiting for the USA to grasp a hold of these talents and they can announce their tour!

MiC LOWRY is getting ready to drop their EP, Mood, on Oct. 18th! Stay tuned!

Get into it below!

NEW MUSIC: BANKS – Underdog

BANKS is back with an amazing unexpected single, “Underdog”! This time around she gives us a more electro-pop sound than we are used to hearing from her.

With tracks such as “Fuck With Myself” and “Waiting Game” under her belt, this is definitely a more “feisty” sound according to BANKS herself. She previously went on record to saying that there is a “Beast inside of me that I haven’t let out fully”. This is just the beginning of this so-called “beast” and we are loving every second of it.

Stay tuned for more of BANKS because this new era is definitely something to keep an eye out for!

NEW MUSIC: Emeli Sandé – Starlight

emeli-sande-starlight

Emeli Sandé is back and her newest track is more up-tempo than ever! Her previous release, “Hurts“, saw her in a dark place both musically and emotionally. She has made a complete 360 with “Starlight”, which is just a feel good song about falling in love.

While I loved the emotional Emeli, this sound is just as perfect and not to mention it is good to hear her this happy. “Starlight” is off her new EP, Kingdom Come, which will be released sometime in November.

We can’t wait to hear the rest of this new sound!

NEW MUSIC: Macklemore – Good Old Days [Ft. Kesha]

Macklemore has been releasing tracks off his new album for a few months now, but none have really stuck….until now. He enlists Kesha for “Good Old Days” and magic is created.

Kesha described the song as “chasing dreams and hoping for the best”, a time when we didn’t know what to expect. It is just a catchy song and perfect for pop radio. A song like this will definitely get recognition just based on the star power.

NEW MUSIC: Leo Kalyan – Temptation

The amazing Leo Kalyan is back with a new track, and we may love him even more.

“Temptation” just oozes sexy, with the mix of house and pop, this track is an absolute smash. The pulsating beat is catchy, while Leo gives his signature smooth vocals. With previous releases like “Day Dream” and “Versailles” under his belt, we’re convinced this man can do anything.

We can’t wait to hear what else this man brings us, but in the meantime this will be on heavy rotation!

NEW VIDEO: Jessie J – Think About That

Jessie J has given us so many bangers over the last 6 years, there is no doubt about that. Many of her stand out tracks have been those from an emotional place (“Who You Are” “Big White Room“), but there is something different about this track.

“Think About That” comes from a whole different place, and while it is emotional it is also a masterpiece. She croons her amazing vocals over a simple hip-hop piano fused beat. The lyrics pick up and she opens up about the relationship damaging not only her life but her career. We have always been a huge supporter of Jessie J and her talent, so its refreshing to have her back.

This may be one of my favorite songs from her since her debut album back in 2011. She announced her next studio album R.O.S.E will be out this year, and this is the first single. We are so excited to hear this album and we are finally hoping she throws a US tour behind it!
