Sunday afternoon means it’s time for the Record Rewind, highlighting the top new tracks that you might’ve missed during the work week, all from my favorite independent acts out there. If it’s on the site, it’s something that you need to check out!
Across the PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…
JEFFREY JAMES – “Running Away” (iTunes) (Spotify)
James is no stranger to the Rewind, with “Both Ways” featured in October and “Hand Grenade” mentioned in January. Yeah, maybe we do like his tunes… can you tell? Updating his sound to a more dramatic, but anthemic pop style, the change is a good one for him.
JOHNNY STIMSON – “Time Machine” (iTunes) (Spotify)
We’ve been bopping to Stimson’s top tracks for some time now, including songs like “Bright Side” and “Easy”. However, imagine our surprise when his latest EP, Yesterday, fell out of the sky on Friday. First track “Time” is a nice fusion of both retro and current pop.
KYKO – “Dive In” (iTunes) (Spotify)
London performer Scott Verrill has been on the PGTC radar for a little under two years now. Needless to say, we’re preparing for an awesome EP next week called Wildfire. Stock up on your flame emojis! “Dive” blends indie rock and world music into one cool track.
