#5. Brooke Bentham – Heavy And Ephemeral
A song that really sounds like it’s from a veteran musician rather than what looks like the third track released on a newcomer’s portfolio. Looks like there could be big things coming for Brooke.
#4. Baba Ali – Otherside
Another track from a (seemingly) newbie in the music scene. Otherside is a grim and catchy blend of RnB and soul-ish pop. Really digging the Eastern European flavour to this one.
#3. William Bolton – One Way
This guy is a music making machine. If you like quantity, he’s definitely got you covered. I wouldn’t say every track is a smash hit, but there is some real quality in there. One Way is a pre-summer track that sets the mood for what is hopefully a warm and sunny season coming our way.
#2. Maximillian – Hey Now/ Pink + White (Cover/Mash Up)
Two of my favorite songs by two of my favorite artists. Did I think it’d work when I saw the title? Nope. Does it work. Beautifully. It helps having a captivating voice, but honestly the minimalistic, almost eerie silence that accompanies the vocals is equally powerful.
#1. Allday Feat. Japanese Wallpaper – In Motion
This one grew on me big time. At first listen, wasn’t too sure I was digging Allday’s switch from his usual hip hop to emo-esque pop. That said, something has drawn me in and now I find myself playing this one on repeat.
