Glassio is reflective, alt dance-pop duo consisting of Sam Rad and Charlie P, met at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute after being paired on a project and instantly formed a bond. Their new single “Morning House” was written out of their bedroom studio and features fellow NYC artist Charles Fauna. The song fuses an electro-pop production along the lines of Flume with soulful and melodic vocal arrangements comparable to Bob Moses.

Bonde do Role meets techno in Sofi Tukker’s new politically charged single “Greed”. “‘Greed’ has been the government’s M.O. this year–and it’s not just about one man. This is one of the first times Sophie has ever screamed. Unfortunately, there is a lot to scream about right now.”

New York City brother/sister duo Paperwhite examine our conscious existence in their track “Human Nature”. Transcendent synths and soaring, spirited melodies benchmark the song while the lyrics dive deeper. “No matter how much we may fight it, we are flawed, we are strong and we are in this together. We are human.”

“Metal Boy” is the debut single from Los Angeles newcomer Charity. Taking the reigns of production herself on the song, Charity displays a penchant for analogue synths that bubble up to meet hazy vocals to create an expansive and dramatic sound.

Louis The Child has cherry picked some of the best female vocalists for their songs and Los Angeles based singer Evalyn is no exception. Featured on their 2016 hit “Fire”, Evalyn shares her debut solo effort “Filthy Rich”. The song is a plush, late-night confessional that runs on Evalyn’s heady R&B and jazz-tinged alto and will make you feel ‘filthy rich’.

DENM – Hey Ya

Feb 15 2017

California garage-pop artist DENM is currently in the studio recording his next EP, but in the meantime shares a reimagining of OutKast’s 2003 iconic single “Hey Ya.” DENM’s interpretation flips the original on its head, turning the track into a downtempo, piano-driven affair with DENM coming in softly but assuredly at the chorus.
