RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, March 18-24, 2018

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 small label and 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…

_____

7CHARIOT – “Danger In Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Previously featured as Clairity; first time featured under new project
Notes: Though I do miss her Clairity project from several years ago, including pop bops like “Velcro”, the new tune from 7Chariot is worth a chariot ride (or seven) over to your streaming service of choice. “Danger” isn’t dangerous at all, with its cool tropical sound.

_____

BEN HOBBS – “Simple Life” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Five previous appearances, “Two Pieces” (February 2018) being the most recent feature
Notes: The London-based performer, who frequently makes the Rewind, issued a double a-side single on Friday, featuring the song noted here and “Blind To You”. Both tracks are quality for different reasons, but this new wave-influenced cut really caught my ear.

MARC SCIBILIA – “Over You” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous appearances, including “Believer” (July 2016) and “Summer Clothes” (February 2017)
Notes: Scibilia’s been slaying the independent game for several years now, picking up several million streams in the process, as well as a massive hit in parts of Europe with DJ/producer Robin Schulz. His latest track sounds like a future hit on the Hot AC airwaves.
