Indie pop newcomer Ella Rae shares her impressive debut “Someone Else”. The New York via London singer’s lyrics are reflective of her experiences and writing sessions around the world and lyrically, Ella isn’t afraid to reveal the most intimate parts of her experiences. Plucky guitar and clear, honest vocals make for a powerful concoction.

Expletives aside, NYC electronic dance duo Sofi Tukker’s “Fuck They” is an undeniably catchy and defiant track about letting go of anything and everything that may be holding you back. Co-written with Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, “Fuck They” is the pair’s confident declaration against the haters. Sofi Tukker is on tour with ODESZA this fall and comes to the Staples Center in LA on October 20th.

From Los Angeles comes queer pop duo TWINKIDS who announces their debut EP “Boys Love”, out in August from Om Records. This week Matt and Gene share the first single “Overdressed”, about the pendulum feeling at the beginning of a relationship. The track alternates between big four-on-the-floor choruses and really quite, vocal led moments.

New Jersey enigma Blood Cultures continues to impress listeners with a new release “Detroit”. The reverb laden song pairs cosmic synths with a hypnotic beat for an intoxicating summer hit. “Detroit” comes from Blood Cultures’ debut album “Happy Birthday” out July 21st.

20-year-old Austrian beatmaking auteur filous announces his “For Love” EP and shares a new single “Knots.” The track features electro-pop newcomer klei, and was inspired by a quest for balance between “old and modern, organic and electronic, playful and heavy.” Crisp tropical synth production underlies klei’s airy vocals, culminating in hypnotic melodies.

Australian record maker Thomas Jack puts a deep house spin on Haux’s “Homegrown” for the remix package of the single. Jack’s remix amplifies Haux’s haunting vocals lending the track a dance friendly beat.

Brooklyn down-tempo psych-pop act Drinker’s “Fake It” has deep analog sounds with plucky, minimal guitar and vulnerable vocals. The track follows the duo’s debut “Which Way Is South,” and is another peek into their forthcoming first EP “Happy Accident”.

New Jersey’s Blood Cultures first release in two years “Moon” is a trip inducing single with woozy, psychedelic synths and fuzzed out vocals. The track comes ahead of a debut album release next month on July 21st.
