Cathy Jain – artificial
If RnB-tinged alt-pop is what you’re into, Cathy Jain will be right up your street. Artificial has a slow and steady acoustic pop beauty that’s hard not to enjoy, coming alive later on against synthy flows and dreamy vocals against warm and inviting beats. The perfect end to a summer’s day as the sun is setting and you’re having fun with your friends.
Spilt Milk Society – Bon Iver
Written by band members Harry Handford and Steven Holmes as a lament on past relationships, Bon Iver by Spilt Milk Society features dreamy, gentle flows, subtle hints of lofi pop and a chorus that wraps everything together in a wonderful way. With lyrics hitting on sudden breakups leaving you feeling out of place and lost, it’s a topic that many will relate to and portrayed perfectly in this track.
SonReal – daylight savings
Taken from his new 5 track EP i can’t make this up, daylight savings sneaks along amongst a sea of tranquillity before popping up against settled beats, playful flows, and an enigmatic performance from the singer-songwriter. His mix of rap and singing styles is a perfect representation of the EP, with bars tight and enjoyable and vocals holdings the track together well as it moves onwards. A delightful, summer-laden listen.
Maisyn – 8.20
LA-based singer-songwriter Maisyn shows off a settled and addictive acoustic folk-pop sound with an added bite on, 8.20 When asked to describe the song, Maisyn suggests it’s about knowing you’re going to lose someone but loving them anyway, and this really comes out in the lyrics and warm sentimentality of the track. Maisyn has some great songs so make sure to also check out the rest of her work.
