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…
PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
EMILY VAUGHN – “Jealous” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance
Following the release of her EP Bitch Bops, perhaps one of the best EP titles of the year so far, Vaughn’s new collection of songs is a great listen for any pop fan. Two cuts from the set have been noted here in the last few months and this new cut is another fun jam.
PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KIM PETRAS – “Broken” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance
Petras continues her streak of top pop releases with another appearance on the Rewind, which also seems to be reacting well at the major digital platforms. With her usual writing and production team in the mix, she serves an edgy ballad that should endure here.
PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
LAUV – “Drugs & The Internet” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 15th appearance
This guy is also no stranger to the Rewind: he’s climbing up my personal chart with a tune from earlier this year, the Troye Sivan-assisted “I’m So Tired…”, which ranks at #11 this week. Co-written and produced by Jon Bellion, it’s a cool song and music video.
For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ALY & AJ, “Don’t Go Changing”
BAKER GRACE, “Illest”
DANIELLA MASON, “Get Me Out Of My Head”
GOLDEN COAST, “Contagious”
LIKEABLE, “So About Last Night…”
MAGDALENA BAY, “Only If You Want It”
NICK WILSON, “Let Me Hold You”
SAM CREIGHTON, “Smile”
SHY MARTIN, “Out Of My Hands”
THE DRIVER ERA, “Welcome To The End Of Your Life”
