“The song is a realisation, that even though you might have a strong connection towards something or someone, it may not always be for the better. So sometimes it can be easier to just let go, instead of changing yourself in an attempt to make things work.”
Dutch power pop doesn’t get any better than this right now.
“A song written for my little brothers whilst I was living in London, and therefore not able to watch them grow up. A song about finding the balance between following ones dreams whilst sacrificing time with loved ones in order to do so. A personal yet in many ways, universal song.”
Promising British talent, with subtle electro pop beats and a vocal that’s full of character and emotion.
Distinctive yet melodic American indie rock that gives me hints from The Strokes circa 2001 era, which is an excellent thing in my books.
A playful blend of disco and RnB to welcome the weekend with.
Fragile yet unique pop vocals over a sweet melody.
Few talents have impressed more than Jessie Reyez over the last couple of years, and with the release her long-anticipated debut album on March 27, I can only imagine 2020 will be absolutely huge for this kid. And well deserved!
One thing I will never deny is how much of a sucker I am for these nu-disco vibes. Franc Moody continue to entertain and delight, and I am here for it.

“I wrote ‘Therapist’ with Caroline Ailin and David Pramik a couple of months ago now. I feel like a lot of the time, a ‘good’ girlfriend is measured in how many chances they give, and how much they can endure mentally before their partner decides to treat them right. That is not it! We are not here to teach men how to behave, we are not their mothers, or their therapists, and we shouldn’t have to take on that pressure! Especially when we received nothing in return. In this particular song, it was about a situation where I really wanted to make it work but realised that this person did not need a relationship, and that I couldn’t give him what he needed no matter how hard I tried.”
Mellow pop with a sense of melancholy.
“I’m a huge fan of New York’s music scene from the Velvet Underground, through the Ramones, to The Strokes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs , so finding out we were gonna play the Mercury Lounge was a very big deal. It compelled me to write something that paid homage to the sound of New York City (or at least what the sound of NYC is to me), while still maintaining our brand of Swedish teenage angst.”

This 23-year old Singaporean talent has already released and album and three EP’s on Spotify and Apple Music, with each garnering over a million streams. A beautifully simple pop sound.
Indie power-pop with hints of retro.
