Bedford, UK – Get a little bit soulful this Tuesday evening with Tom Grennan and his new track “Something in the Water”. The song itself is pretty heavy with the dark melodies but the rhythm and Grennan’s vocals add a more uplifting aspect to the song. His vocals definitely stand out brilliantly in this track and the beat on the track helps highlight the strength in his voice. “Something in the Water” starts off with a pretty mellow guitar intro but hang in there and you’ll get the full impact of the song and you won’t regret it.

Fleet, UK – Just a couple days ago, THØSS shared his debut EP Benchwarmer and from the EP is the track “Keep Going”. The intro to the song sets the tone for the whole song: easy-going with a slight groove that’ll keep your head nodding along. The soft percussions with the melodic guitar sets a gentle vibe for the song that has just a bit of the indie rock sound. “Keep Going” has a lot of little things that make the song great – from the lyrics to the fantastic guitar rifts. It’s the kind of song that puts a tiny smile on your face.

Parma, Italy – Fans of Bon Iver, I’ve got the band and track for you: “Jeremiah” by My Gravity Girls. This track was released off of their record Irrelevant Pieces vol. 2 and it mixes folk compositions with electronica to create that delicate balance of tunes. In the intro, there is a solid guitar strumming section that really reminds me of Bon Iver’s music, especially when the percussions come in. My only improvement for the song would be for the vocals to be a little gentler to fit with the ethereal sound of the track.

Boston, MA – Quartet Tipling Rock shares new track “Low Tide Love”. This indie rock song will have you thinking about your happy place with its bubbly indie rock melody. It’s kind of a mix between brit pop and Hippo Campus with the jangly guitar chords. I love the summery vibe on this track so it’s a perfect add to any upcoming chill out playlists.

Los Angeles, CA – Just a couple days ago, Ramonda Hammer shared their music video for “If, Then”, taken from newly released album Whatever That Means. I was initially drawn to the song because of the classic alternative rock sound but as I listened to the song more, I really began to notice lead vocals Devin Davis. Something about the track itself reminds me a lot of Bully’s slower songs but Ramonda Hammer do a slick job of throwing it back to 90s alternative/garage rock sounds and while Davis’ vocals do seem a bit high for the track at first, she really makes it work. Check out the rest of the album here:

Los Angeles, CA – Coast Modern return to Abduction Radiation with their newest single “Guru”. The song is a pretty mellow synthpop track with some synth layers that actually remind me a bit of chillwave back in 2010. The rhythm on “Guru” has a groove to it that’s super easy going and with the slight reverb, it has a nice dream pop vibe. With the general sound of the song and the visual single art, “Guru” is a super cohesive track that is super easy to listen to.

Sydney, Australia – Surf pop band Capital Coast recently shared the first release “Inside Times” from their upcoming EP Johnny Hunter. The intro guitar chords really captured by attention because it really set the mood of the entire song as this slow yet rhythmic alternative surf pop track. There isn’t anything necessarily overly complex about the track, which gives the track a nice simplistic sound. I love the carefree mellowed out sound of the song that kind of reminds me of lazy summer days.
