Welcome to Weekly Round-Up No. 17! This week we feature debut releases by Luin The Rue, Maria Fosnes, Nathan Owen, Human Stranger, KEZRA, Margot and Bad With Phones. Enjoy the music!
Luin The Rue – Follow
“Follow” is the first song by young duo Nick Kennerly and Truman Lusson from Los Angeles, USA. It’s a beautiful acoustic song about the thin line between love and friendship. The guys’ vocals sound incredible together, with their tone balancing between hope and disappointment. The harmonious backing vocals and the peaceful cello solo complete the song. This is a special little gem that will bring tears to your eyes.
Maria Fosnes – Ping Pong
Debut single “Ping Pong” by Norwegian singer Maria Fosnes is an electropop song about struggling with opposite and swinging emotions within a relationship. The electro melody sounds indeed like ping pong, as do the vocal samples in the chorus. Very catchy electropop.
Human Stranger – Later Love
The debut single “Later Love” is a collaboration between Human Resources and Little Stranger. Together the bands create a dreamy new wave track with an incredible summer heat vibe. Sublime!
KEZRA – Better Place
Huge debut single by Australian singer-songwriter Kezra. Together with producer Fractures she turned her piano ballad “Better Place” into a full-blown dreamy pop single.
Nathan Owen – Keep It Runnin’
Are looking for an awesome song to listen to while driving with the windows down? Then check out Nathan Owen debut track “Keep It Runnin'”! It has an infectious groove, a driving midtempo beat and a classic rock vibe that all force you to turn up the volume! This song will make you hunt for adventure!
Margot – Desensitised
Impeccable debut by English band Margot! “Desensitised” deals with feeling detached from your true nature by the daily go-to-the office routine through city scapes and anonymous crowds. Instead of sounding depressing, the band knows to keep the song bright and dreamy, as to give hope, liberation and the assurance this is not your real self.
Bad With Phones – Needles
We love the weird & wonderful! Bad With Phones debuts with “Needles”, a strange acoustic song with a funky groove that builds by adding a bass, cowbell and flute. The most remarkable is his warm, soulful voice.
