Cardiknox is calling all the bad boys with their new pop banger. Written as a homage to their childhood and music obsessed dads, “Bad Boys” feels like an end of summer anthem, with its disco tropes and retro feel.

Axel Mansoor’s music sits at the intersection of pop and rock. His latest single with Louis Vivet “Hit Rewind” is a nostalgic ode to the pair’s shared home of Los Angeles. The song is the perfect end of summer roll-down-the-windows SoCal anthem.

Austrian producer filous shares the title track “For Love” from his upcoming EP. The track sees him reunite with rising vocalist Klei (previously featured on “Knots”) for a memorable indie pop tune with crisp, guitar lines and emphatic choruses that will linger in your head long after the song is over.

Experimental pop outfit Iris Lune’s latest single “Paper Mache” from their forthcoming “Lost In Chatter” EP is in exercise in restraint. The track is about the struggle to love yourself, with the protagonist in the song choosing a ‘paper mache’ love that’s homemade, seemingly beautiful and strong, but actually very fragile and unstable.

LOVE SICK is Scottish duo Shaun and Julie who first met at a call center Christmas party where they discovered their mutual love of music. Their debut single “Bullet” arrives today like a shot to the heart and is a twisted love song that will earworm its way into your head. The track is out now from B3SCI Records.
