As June comes to its conclusion we have another batch of top-notch tunes for you to enjoy before the month ends. From dreamy lofi to jazzy funk and lounge-infused beats, this is a great week for new music. As always, click the pics for a listen.
Stars and Rabbit – Pretty Anticipated
Indonesian duo Stars and Rabbit release the beautifully hazy track Pretty anticipated from new album On Different Days. Full of catchy rhythms and a gentle atmosphere, it makes you think of warm summer days and happy vibes, a time when you had no cares in the world. The vocals are just as uplifting as the track skips, hops, and jumps its way to its bubbly conclusion. If you finish this track without a smile on your face, there is something wrong with you.
Jank Setup – Prince of Something
Innovative 8 piece band Jank Setup show us what they’re all about with track Prince of Something. A gentle piano intro grows into a funky-soul belter with hints of jazz and hip-hop littered throughout. The musicianship is wonderful and the vocals are suitable smooth and silky, able to make the most of an upbeat and flowing chorus that hits home hard. You’ll have to listen to this track at least a few times to truly enjoy everything it has to offer.
ØZWALD – sausalito
An inside project by Jason Wade and Steve Stout from the band Lifehouse, sausalito has a dreamy outlook that drives forward on settled drumbeats and warm and inviting vocals. The serenity is the main driving force as the track comes out of its shell in a beautifully constructed chorus that just flows so well. With hints of psyche-rock and a fun disposition, this duo has a knack for creating silky smooth tracks of loveliness.
easy life – Skeletons
Taken from their debut album life’s a beach, skeletons is a ridiculously catchy lofi Hawaiian lounge banger that grooves on big beats and silky synths. The wordplay is mesmerising as this young group show off their exuberance for life with the freedom to try new things as an up-and-coming band. It’s this essence that will see them go far and take the music world by storm.
