Our new Record Rewind is about highlighting the top new songs that you may have missed, or should discover, from many of my favorite independent acts out there. If you like what you see, let me know what you think!
BOA – “Pharaoh” (iTunes) (Spotify)
A few months ago, this duo released a jam called “Right Place Right Time”, which got them a solid amount of blog coverage and a contract with LAB Records, an independent group that’s given us some tasty tracks recently. You can add this pop gem to the list.
JESSE RUBEN – “First Day Of Summer” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This is why we need him: fun and catchy songs that fit the light-hearted manner of the season. You may know his tender ballad of late last year, especially with its reach, but it’s always good to hear another side of a songwriter. “First” is a nice slice of sunshine.
KID RUNNER – “Don’t Change Me” (iTunes) (Spotify)
While “Give Me Something To Love” remains in rotation for me, this Ohio quintet has a whole EP coming out in just two weeks. I think it’ll be pretty awesome based on the two releases so far. “Don’t” shines in all its alt-pop glory, with a good melody and lyric.
KINGDM – “Superman” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The dynamic duo has been making the various streaming platforms their kingdom since late last year, and the reign continues on with their heroic and high-flying new release. It’s an easy listen, a lush piece of late night pop. Grab your cape and keep listening.
MARC SCIBILIA – “Believer” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Current Nashville resident Scibilia was previously with I.R.S./Capitol Records, but now, he’s good with Good Lander. So, it’s not a surprise that his new self-released song is also, well, good. Written about a hope for change in rough times, it’s a hit with heart.
OFELIA K – “Killing Me” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Los Angeles singer keeps releasing great singles for the blog and streaming communities, and that growing base of believers is really making an impact. “Killing” is keeping her alive, and sailing smoothly into the hearts of art pop lovers around the world.
